The director and the camera crew are set to arrive at my house in less than three hours. Yesterday I was a mad woman trying to clean the carpets and clean the walls and all of that other annoying stuff I never get around to doing. I’m not a dirty person by any means, but unfortunately Harlow is. This winter has been tough on our coke princess white carpet to say the least. Then I started looking around rooms thinking hmm what should I add in here in attempt to make my life look cooler and more put together?
And don’t even get me started on my outfit selection. I bought like five new shirts (left the tags on all of them obviously) in attempt to figure out my on camera style. But the problem is I don’t know my off camera style. I’m usually all over the place with what I wear, one day I’m looking like a hipster and the next day I’m as preppy as can be. And then all of the other days I’m in sweats and Second City attire because I’m just a loser like that.
In true Taylor form, I got too lazy to change anything about my house, and I’m just going to wear something I’ve had in my closet for ages- probably skinny jeans, a plain grey tee, and a loose sweater or denim shirt over top. It’s just how I roll.
Now because my mind is all over the place at the moment I’m just going to turn this post into one of those annoying
“Five Things” type of segments. Let’s call this Five Things I’m Excited About Right Now. Original, I know.
#1. Last night was my last level five class at iO. I have only eight more weeks in level 5B and then I graduate iO! I’m not excited about that however, I don’t want to leave iO. What I’m excited about are all of the amazingly funny and wonderful people I’ve met in my classes from the past year. Give it up for this funny crew, you’ll probably be seeing some of their faces on SNL or sitcoms someday.
#2. My parents and Jade and Lola are coming to town tomorrow! Bloody Marys and pacifiers all around! Chris and I have called this month “Family February” because we have been with one of our families literally every single weekend for the past four weeks! Seriously. It’s a good thing we like each other’s families or this month might be called “sorry but we have to break up February.”
#3. I booked Zanies! Zanies is an awesome comedy club here in Chicago and I get to be a part of their female funnies segment coming up here in a few months.
#4. I got new return address labels in the mail from March of Dimes and they don’t say “Mr. Taylor Wolfe” this time. #blessed
#5. My new clean carpet. I shouldn’t say “new” because it’s far from it, but it is freshly clean now. More snow is expected to roll through Chicago this weekend so if all goes according to Harlow’s plan, it will be trashed again by Monday.
And I guess I’m kind of excited to film a pilot today and for my set at Laugh Factory tomorrow. Even as I type Laugh Factory tomorrow my stomach is turning and my hands are getting clammy. I don’t know why I get jollies off of torturing myself with anxiety but I do… Now it’s time to go put on a face full of makeup. I splurged and bought some foundation not from Target so I’m going to be pissed if I apply it and still look like me.
The weekend is almost here. Thanks for reading and thanks for all of the kind comments coming my way about all of my random shenanigans. The good vibes you are sending are being felt. Now if someone could just send me some Xanex I’d be golden…
