  • So I crossed another item off my #NewOrleans bucket list yesterday: finally ran the Crescent City Classic! #ccc10k // I finished the race at exactly an hour for the 6.2 mile course, giving me a pace of 10 min./mile. Didn't stop the whole time, which was my only goal. Really proud of this given the very minimal training I'd done. Admittedly, the body hurts a bit today though. // The weather was gorgeous and seeing the city in this way was so very unique, and I'm glad I got to share the moment with my sister. :) #running #RaceNewb

Day 16 – Celebrity Itself Is A Drug (Blackout Poem)

By on June 1, 2017

[Blackout poem crafted from a “10 Questions” TIME interview with Robin Williams. Published 8-25-14.]

Celebrity itself is a drug,
addiction the price of fame.

It’s good for business to say
that they get you high.

They expect you to be crazy.
The id is always
Glaargarg – you wanna do thaaaat.
But I hope not to.

Standup is how comedians process
things that are painful.
That’s what keeps them going.
That’s what keeps them alive.
