Just finished doing my third set in 3 different locations tonight. That is the essence of the grind, knowing that hard work is required for success, and loving the work. The love part is a bonus. I live a different type of comedian life, at least from many other comedians that I hang with. My time is limited b/c I have to balance it with family. Not an easy task. Family’s first. They have to be covered on all angles. Comedy requires A LOT of time and is the means to support the family financially. Its all a machine. To me its amazing that I’ve created this all from bottom to top. You know, I live a no holds barred comedy regime. I will perform anywhere just to be on stage. If I turn something down, its most likely b/c of a promoter involved that didn’t make the circumstances enjoyable. OR, now that I’m famous, I guess time is an issue too.
I’m sitting in the car right now while she’s in the Whole Food grocery store. I’ve been somewhat reflecting lately. I don’t think anyone does it alone. I mean people don’t succeed without aid. There are many people who I have to thank for just how far that I have already came. I realized that I’ve always done my own thing and no matter how different they said I was, I just stuck to it. I hate when someone has to go way out of their way to say that are responsible for all of your successes. That’s a selfish belief. Giving is supposed to be cheerful. Mr. Myaigi didn’t hassle Daniel Son for even a payment. I never ask for anything in return for what I’ve given to anyone. I was taught that you don’t give to receive, so stop waiting for your gift basket. You know how many gift baskets I would have to give out, that could take years. I do appreciate and am thankful. Pay it forward. Believe that. Man, I’ve been sitting in this car for a long time and its hot. She’s probably never coming out. Women can be so inconsiderate when it comes to shopping for anything, even groceries, even eggs. And she always wants to be in there talking to the employess like they’re her real friends. I’m her only real friend and she has me in the car burning up. She didn’t even leave the keys, like I’m gonna pull off and strand her. Oh yeah, I don’t have keys.
