Happy Humpday

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Some days it takes a little extra effort to get out of bed in the morning. For the past week, I've had a lot of those days.

For more reasons than one, the past two weeks haven't exactly been the greatest for me. For the most part it's all standup/improv related. Who knew the world of comedy could be so depressing at times. Kind of ironic, huh? All of the rejection/wedidntchooseyou just gets to be a lot. Sometimes I'm good at handling it and sometimes it just sucks.

A couple of nights ago I found out I didn't make an improv team that virtually everyone else I was playing with did. That one was a real stinger. And after I got that great news I hosted an open mic that went pretty late and by the end it was just me and a lot of drunk guys making dumb comments about the "pretty host," to put it politely... It just got to be a bit much. I usually don't mind the boys club of comedy, but two nights ago it bugged the hell out of me.

And now that I've got those three whiney paragraphs out of the way let's move onto something a little less poor me. Sorry about that. 

Before all of that complaining just came rushing out, what I meant to say is that today's going to be a good day. I'm not giving it any other choice. I've finally printed my head-shots with a real photography printing studio that isn't Walgreens, I've got an audition this afternoon, and I'm meeting some funny friends for drinks tonight. 

And I got dressed today. 

There's a good chance you've already seen this dress on here because it's been my go-to this fall. It's super comfortable, fits like a gem, and it has pockets. I have a real thing for dresses that have pockets. Don't all girls?


It's from a little boutique called In Bloom. I've order a few pieces from this store now (like this kimono for example) and I've always been very pleased with everything they've sent me.


The owner is super sweet to work with and they also have free shipping which is always a bonus. Use the code DAILYTAY15 to get 15% off your order. I'd start with this vest, this cardi, or this scarf.


Just to get your Holiday shopping started, In Bloom is graciously hosting a giveaway for $40 store credit below.

*Clutch found here.

Enter here. And now let's all just try to have a really great day. You owe it to yourself.

  6. You look beautiful! Sorry about your bum week. The path you have chosen is tricky, but I'm told all the great success stories started out with lots of rejection - if it's too easy, you end up like Justin Bieber. And that would be the real tragedy.

  30. I wanna tell you, without sounding cliche or girly annoying (whatever that means), that these posts of yours really inspire me. I have a really hard time picking myself up when I'm faced with even the smallest amount of rejection so when I see you getting back up and continuing to try to succeed at what you love it inspires me to do better and not be such a little bitch when someone criticizes a piece I've written for one of my workshops or when others (sometimes consistently) do better than me. So, while you definitely deserve to have some days where you (rightfully) complain all day long, thank you for inspiring me to be better.

  45. I really appreciate your honesty. So much of blogging/facebook/instagram is overloaded with this "perfect life" mentality, and nothing turns me away quicker. I really like to hear about people's bad days, let downs, and frustrations once in awhile because it makes me feel a little more normal and a lot less inadequate. Plus you are a positive and upbeat dreamer 98% of the time, so your posts are never ever whiney. Thanks for being so transparent- I think your readers really identify with that.
