Life’s flying by like a freakin’ whirlwind over here, guys and gals! Things have gotten a little crazy since my last post, so I’m pleased to announce that they’ve calmed down enough that I can sit down with my best friend “MacBook” to hack out an essay due tomorrow and some new material in preparation for a set I’ll be performing on Thursday evening at Humber, organized and put on by some of the b’ys in my class. (If anyone’s interested…)
I spent the weekend away from the comedy scene, which was very relieving though I certainly didn’t lack the provision of comic relief, showing up in Ottawa with a voice no louder than a whisper. Listen kids, if you’ve got a cold, stay home and treat it. Otherwise people will mock you relentlessly and you’ll only have sign language to defend yourself as a result.
I’m currently writing a paper about Peter Pan Syndrome and realizing that I have it pretty fiercely. I mean, I know I constantly mock man-boys whenever I get the chance, but I’m afraid to say it… I think I may be a lady-girl. Everyone in Ottawa I hung out with this weekend seems so figured out. Here in Toronto, most everyone I meet are where I was when I started out in Ottawa. There’s this whole no-man’s-land gap between both social groups. Why has it taken me 8 years to end up somewhere I should have been? Am I caught in some kind of strange time-loop? Are these the ramblings of a lunatic? Can I get my eggs over-hard please? No pepper.
Whatever. I don’t care that it’s taken me 8 years to get here. This is where I belong. I know that.
One thought on “Peter Pan Syndrome”
it’s great that you know that you belong there. That’s a great feeling! I always tell myself, it’s not the destination that is important but the journey. Whenever a situation doesn’t feel right, move one to something else and see if that fits. Who cares how many years it takes to figure it out. That’s what living is all about, right?
I’m glad you found a fit. I hope I can find my fit soon…
BTW, I met your friend Scott today at Rideau Hall. 🙂 and gave him a tour of the public rooms. Super nice guys!
Take care Brie-Brie
