I'm Waiting for Life to Start

Avenue Q rehearsals are about to start soon and I can't wait. I'm Gary Coleman. If you don't know who that is, you've lived a sad life. If you don't know what Avenue Q is, get over to YouTube RIGHT NOW and find out.

I'm really excited to be a part of this show, but another thing that excites me is the fact that I'll actually be doing something productive. I'm not saying that I don't do productive things now, but my level of activity has definitely dwindled since graduation. I make videos and I write but I spend a LOT of time watching Netflix and perusing the net. Too much time.

I could have had all the episodes of COTD written already, but I was too busy looking at Eliza Dushku's Instagram. I could have finished my screenplay or even read my friend's book if I hadn't spent so much time watching and re-watching movies back to back.

I knew I spent a lot of time on the internet, but I didn't really realize HOW much time I spent on there until I came across Maude Apatow's Twitter. She talks a lot about how Twitter is sucking her soul. It makes her feel good. It makes her feel bad. It makes her stalk famous people that she thinks she'll never get the chance to actually know. Maybe because her dad only casts the same actors over and over, who knows. 

Anyway, I feel the same and I think a lot of people do. The internet is a great and wonderful thing but too much is bad. Everything in moderation, right? But I'm an American. I don't understand moderation. I want everything fast and cheap. I get antsy if my Facebook page takes too long to load. It's just an issue that we all deal with whether we want to or not.

I can't see an easy solution unless we get rid of the internet and I trade my iPhone in for an early 2000s Nokia. Oh well...
