Undoubtedly, this healthy thinking is responsible for my wildly successful career and personal life
Well anyway...after stumbling out of bed, I head to the bathroom (again- I'd like to direct your attention to the title of this post) which usually has some sort of water and/or sewage issues thus making it smell like the kitchen of a Taco Bell and/or White Castle...so I'm brushing my teeth, slapping on far too much or far too little makeup whilst doing my hair and trying not to gag at the smell...all the while, mind you, the toilet's not working so I'm also jogging in place as I think, "Argh!!!! Come on Bessie (yes, some of us do name our bladder's Bessie) you can hold on for just a few more minutes!!" and hurriedly finish before passing out and having an accident because that's not how I want some hot paramedic to find me...passed out and lying in a pool of urine.
Jumping into the car, I turn on the inspirational music of Les Miserables and listen to Anne Hathaway singing "I Dreamed A Dream" about eight times in a row as I sob whilst fighting traffic and cursing the day of my birth under my breath before noticing that the guy in the car next to me is staring at me as I cry and so I get embarrassed and I curse the day of my birth some more while speeding ahead of him, which nearly causes an accident (in more ways than one because no, Bessie and I haven't stopped at Chick Fil A to use the restroom yet)...so you probably get the point by now. I don't enjoy my life very much.
But...I like to hope.
I believe that one day this will get better.
I believe there will be a time when I will use every day to create stories- writing them, filming them...making audiences happy as, at least for at least a few minutes, I take them on a trip away from this crummy world and into a place where life is sweeter.
I also believe that one day I'll live in a real home - one that smells nice and has a working toilet.
I believe that morning after morning I will wake up and, instead of feeling like a dried up banana of a loser, I'll feel proud of who I am- a functioning human being who uses her talent to make life better.
I firmly believe in this future, but I'm not waiting around for the adventure to start or the future to fall in my lap- right now is when the adventure starts.
So, yeah, there are tons of things wrong with my life right now, and the beginning of the adventure is finding my way out of this heap of wrongness that surrounds me- it's a puzzle that must be solved.
Every bad day is a new beginning, an adventure in the making!
And now...Bessie and I are going to go use the bathroom.
