You ask how I got to this point or even if you did not, here it goes anyways. It is kind of a long story, but I think I can make it short. It all started in DC, grew up in an OK home with some, well, Ok people. I’ll save that for another post, but I always wanted to be a comedian. I can still hear my dad yelling at me that I would never be able to be one and that it was not a real job, “you can’t make money off of comedy”.
Well a few years later, me and my dad would have a falling out to say the least, stay tuned for that story. I decided to move to NY, started off in Harlem, NY and then moved to Long Island, NY. With this big move, I felt like my new life had just begun. My dad, well he didn’t know that I was not coming back to DC. I ran away to stay in NY, but now that I had moved, it was time to make big moves, I was 10, yes, big moves like going to school on long island.
Making friends was not a problem for me, but making good ones seemed to be my issue. I started to run with the wrong people, doing the wrong things, and acting in a way that was off the wall. I could literally see my self dying one day out in these streets with some of my so called friends. Then one day, I finally realized that I was letting my dream that I’d always wanted and that I was more then able to reach, get away from me.
That light bulb switch went off I guess you can say, so I started to clean up my act and focus on my main goal in life. Let it be known, this was not easy, but the best choice for me. I started to put great people around me, ones who had the same goals and wanted to do things with their lives. Third times the charm I guess, it was a new start and a new beginning.
After changing my ways, I found a great girlfriend, some one who would back me up and be my back bone, so that I would not back slide into the past. Before I knew it, my dream was coming true and I had started and now continue to live my dream of having a comedy career. This is just the first of many parts of my life.
