Another blogger recently posted about her struggles to maintain balance between work and home, and what struck me about her post and the responses to it was that A LOT of us would rather be doing something else. Sure, we like our jobs, make good money, are well-trained at what we do, but for many of us there's that secret career we really wish we had. For her it's interior design. For me....it's comedy.
Seriously. Stop laughing. Unless you found that humorous and comedic, then laugh away. My friends and family know I'm telling the truth. There was a period, probably lasting through college, where I spent alot of time daydreaming about becoming a stand-up comedian. No, I never tried an open-mic night. Too chicken. I'm not sure if I'm even all that funny, although people tell me I am all the time. Of course we all know being funny when you're at a party does not necessarily translate into being a good stand-up comedian.
Oh, well. Maybe one day when I get sick of being a vet I'll chuck it all and you'll see me on Last Comic Standing. Probably not, but you never know...
Practice makes perfect
