Chasing the Dream...Day 630

Hi All,

How's it going everybody? I hope fantastically!

I am doing okay.

First and foremost, thank you to everyone and anyone who came out to Chaplin's this past weekend on the 10th and 11th and supported my show with Mark Poolous. He is an awesome comedian and it was a lot of fun emceeing his show.

My last show for 2010 will be at Laff Tracks on December 22nd. I probably won't be doing any comedy again until February 2011 (as far as shows-I will probably/maybe be taking a comedy class in January TBD). The show starts at Laff Tracks at 8 p.m. and you can click here for directions: http://www.google.com/maps/place?cid=1342686012397996321&q=breaktime+billiards&fb=1&gl=us&hq=breaktime+billiards&hnear=Oak+Park,+MI

Here's my article in Real Detroit weekly this week:

Quick Update:

Don't forget to pick up the January issue of 944 magazine on newsstands 01/01/2011 and read my article in their Vanguard Issue on some of the wonderful happenings in midtown Detroit's Tech Town.

Also, my show 1940s Radio Hour at Birmingham Village Players in Birmingham, MI opens on the 21st of January. Don't forget to come! It's a really fun show! There are a lot of great songs in the show along with a ton of funny bits, dancing and cool costumes. It'll be a winter delight.

I just want to express again that I am so appreciate and grateful for all of the support I receive from friends and family in my artisic and creative endeavors. It means so much to me that you read my blog, come to my shows and give me all the emotional support.

I am a firm believer that dreams can come true and it gets really hard. But, I am holding on to my dreams and the only reason I am able to keep pushing on is because of all the amazing support I get from each and every one of you. My tank gets empty sometimes and it feels like I can't keep pursuing and I just want to go business casual and throw in the towel. But, I don't and it is because of my extraordinary support system. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Can I be candid with you guys? And, I know everyone one this planet has a dream or dreams so I know you can all relate to this: I feel scared right now. I am so scared that my dreams won't come true. I won't become the media dynamo that dream of being. I love writing so much and I do it for the pure joy of writing. It is my joy. It is my therapy. It is my gift. It is my everything. But, a girl has to eat too. And, I am afraid that my dreams of writing and performing only and full-time and actually being able to support myself financially won't happen and I will have to settle for what puts food on the table. I am getting older and the clock isn't going to stop for me. And, although I don't believe in living life on a time table I am aware of the fact that I do need to start thinking about the future because I am not 18 anymore. I feel like I have set a foundation over the past decade by getting an education, creating some contacts, getting a lot of experience and praying a lot. But, the future seems so open with no end of the "starving artist" thing in sight.
As I stated prior I am holding on because of all the encouragement and support I get. But, the truth is this: Stability would be nice and I am a little tired. A new year is right around the corner and I am hoping it brings some answers and results from all of my hard work.

Thank you for reading!

You guys rock!

xoxo
Sam
