Sunny Side Up
Jesus, people take life too damn seriously. I do it pretty often myself. We all find excuses for WHY we take life too damn seriously. Unless you have a crippling disease then shut up and smile, yeah? Here's the top ten complaints in Los Angeles I've heard recently:
10. It's that time of the month. (Ladies)
I've used this excuse before myself.
Look, don't let your bloody ax wound get in the way of your good life. It's hard, I know.
9. My so-and-so ain't putting out enough. (Generally, men)
Get creative, and deal. Or find a new so-and-so. Believe me there are women out there that LOVE putting out!
8. Financially, I'm a wreck.
First of all...stop THAT thought in it's tracks and replace it with: Financially I am learning...or whatever.
7. My love life is non-existent/I keep meeting the wrong person.
I joined Match.com recently and it did all the work for me. If you're busy and you want a new pond to swim in, give it a try. And BE PICKY. I had over 200 responses within the first two WEEKS. Within two months I met two great guys: one is now a good friend who has helped me out several times and the other is a growing relationship...
6. I'm bored.
Only boring people get bored. Take a class, get a life, make new friends. Go for a freakin WALK. Do SOMETHING. At the very least stop talking about how bored you are.
5. My Ex has done asshole behavior #438.
I'm learning that you can't change them, you can only change yourself. And remember that we all do asshole behaviors from time to time, but that doesn't mean we're assholes.
4. I'm not working.
Then create your own goddamn work and stop bitching. I HATE hearing that from fellow actors. What are you? A completely incompetent idiot without a brain? If that is the case, please leave town so the rest of us don't have to hear your whining and get a job in a factory because apparently you can only be a useful member of society when people are telling you what to do and we don't need any more of those HERE unless you're on an assembly line somewhere.
3. I don't feel like I belong.
I'm working on this one. Feeling like a misfit sucks. But if you consider that this town is full of misfits and that sort of makes us all perfect for each other here... Then we all fit. Wherever we choose to be.
2. My butt, belly, or whatever is too big. I'm fat, I hate my body...
Get on a treadmill. Shut up PLEASE and just do the work to get un-fat. And stop giving us skinny-fit girls who work our ASSES off to look like this flak for looking like this. Most of us work really hard for it.
1. The Traffic and/or The Weather
We can only control so much. Maybe buy a hybrid, or a bike, or walk. I'm looking at paying more in rent to move closer to where I work because it's a wash with the gas money from driving where I am now... but I'd pollute the world less and be on the road less...and really, it's all connected.
That's it for today.
