Constant pursuit of passion!
That is my success.
The line for the Starbucks in our hotel lobby is longer than the Great Wall-
With as many annoying tourists!
How can you not know what you want?
You've been standing in line for twenty minutes! #OverIt!
After a week of working out of town and a twelve hour travel day, I crashed last night.
Waking up to the smell of Kona coconut Hawaiian coffee and bacon is just one of the many perks to married life.
I'm so blessed that I found my soulmate-
Whether creating projects, exploring a new city while on vacation or lounging at home watching Saturday morning cartoons, I am the luckiest man alive.
Because I found a partner who inspires me to thrive!
Up at 5 AM.
Thank God for Starbucks.
The shuttle driver proceeds cautiously at a snails pace to the airport-
TSA is surprisingly short,
So is my first flight.
Connection in Denver (I wish I had time to see my family).
One day at home, then back on the road...
It's impossible to get enough sleep or look good.
Ah, the glamorous life!
Choreographing in a hotel room,
Drafting a marketing and PR strategy for my new book,
Composing an email to my manager,
Coordinating a meeting with a TV network to pitch our TV pilot-
All on three hours of sleep.
So I'm pretty much living the dream!
Airports are the worst aspect of life on the road.
Dealing with bitter, jaded, nasty airline employees suck.
I get it. You're tired of the endless parade of uneducated, uncivilized, overweight assholes who don't have a clue...
A. YOU chose this job.
B. and more important, I am not one of those people aforementioned.
So slap on a phony smile and take care of your customers.
Please and thanks (with a phony smile back!)
Sitting outside in the valley heat,
Drinking my Starbucks iced coffee-
The puppies comfortably passed out in my lap.
I should be writing or returning calls,
But instead, I'm enjoying some me time (with a splash of social media), naturally.
Mom, you gave me life-
Even though I'm sure you wished you could take that back during my teenage years, I'm grateful you didn't!
Thank you for your unconditional love, support and faith in me and my dream.
You are the worlds best mom!
Young or old, everyone has their swagger.
Swinging, swishing, hunched or pulled up-
Fast and furious, or
Slow and steady, both on a mission:
Coffee! Java. A cup-of-Joe
Creatures of habit. In need of caffeine, and socialization.
Starbucks is more than a coffee house, it's an anthropological classroom in the university of life.
Awake, but not conscious.
Sitting at another airport sipping on a watered down soy latte from Starbucks.
Surrounded by a small group of regular travelers (I can tell by the roadmap that marks their face and zombie eyes.)
I feel like a member of The Breakfast Club! Only our group would be called The Sleepless, Worn-down, Tired of this Lifestyle BUT Grateful for A Job Club.
Instead of getting detention we get delayed!
I haven't decided which is worse:
The actual embarrassment of talking to people with a lisp and a mouth full of metal.
The actual sores on my tongue from having the retainer in my mouth all day!
As I get older and I'm blessed with each new day on this earth, I appreciate the opportunities that I've had-
My past is a reminder to continue living in the present and release the idea of what my future "should be."
Setting goals and working towards them, always mindful that I will experience everything I "need" to, when I'm meant to.
Adventure only comes to those who are open to change and unexpected circumstances.
I have Faith that my path will lead me where I'm most prepared for the journey.
I read my news on Facebook,
I get my inspiration from Instagram,
I laugh out loud reading my Twitter feed,
I watch TV on YouTube-
I think it's safe to say I'm in engulfed in 21st century lifestyle!
Little bird chirps,
Hopping around from table to table scooping up crumbs.
I sip my venti caramel macchiato-
There's so much gooey caramel it drips onto the ground.
I love mornings in nature.
AKA as sitting outside at Starbucks.
4 AM wake up call-
I'm getting ready as if I was actually awake.
It feels more like sleepwalking...
Stayed up too late watch the Oscars.
Boring show, still there were some inspirational moments-
I thought John Travolta's hairpiece have an amazing performance!
Now I'm off to the airport.
Back to LA. The dream continues.
I've reached an all time low in my shamelessness!
Desperate for MORE caffeine-
I took the empty Starbucks cup I had from the Tulsa airport, to the Starbucks in the Phoenix airport and asked for a refill!
The barista couldn't believe how shameless I was, but "admired my balls" and upgraded me to a Soy Latte!
That's what happens when you just don't give a shit!
You can learn a lot about a person while waiting in line at Starbucks.
Divorce, cheating and movie making are all a part of the gossip-
But my favorite are those people who cut you off and jump the line..
Those are the same assholes who cut you off on the freeway!
So thanks you Starbucks, for the education.
I'm working with a group of teenage theatre students in a show right now-
It's a lot like watching a movie of my life in middle school.
I really like the kid that's "playing" Me, he really understands the character. Plus, his hair is perfect.
