School: Western Illinois
About Me: Hello world. I’m loud, boisterous, usually talking – but always thinking. My friends, though it is cliché – are probably the most unique and charismatic people I have ever met. Their energy and constant on-the-go attitude has fueled me to be the on my feet, constantly thinking of ideas – type of person I am today. I’ve recently decided that, in addition to the BA I will be recieving this year from Western Illinois University, I want a life full of comedy – and a life full of my ideas and my thoughts finally being put out to an outlet that is accessible to anybody and everybody. Recently I’ve written several notepads worth of jokes – some, at one point this year, will be used during a stand-up comedy routine. Though it was incredibly relaxing and very fun to write jokes that I have thought of for years – it didn’t completely make me happy. This is it. This will track my every thought (via blogs and twitter) – and soon will capture some of the jokes/comedic skits being wrote. Aside from why I am doing this blog – I am now enrolled at WIU as I have mentioned, where I met the most wonderful woman in the world – and in addition to her, more and more people who continue to drive my comedic and worldly thought processes. It’s going to be a fun ride.
