Here are my reasonable New Year’s resolutions, as follows:
1) Stop saying the word “sammich.” It’s sandwich. I’m not five years old anymore.
2) I’m not going to vow to lose weight. That will just make me binge eat sandwiches (omg, I did it!) and cookies. I will vow, though, to stick with my workouts. If I have scheduled a workout (at Mindful Movement Studio, those living in the Indianapolis area should really check them out!), I cannot cancel it last-minute.
3) Read all the Harry Potter books and watch all the (released) movies. I’ve already started (as you can see here and here)!
4) Learn cross-stitching. This one is random. I feel like I could be good at it, since I’ve been knitting quite a bit. I’ve been a crafty girl this year (blanket 1 and blanket 2 & 3).
5) Complete workshops at ComedySportz Indianapolis. This one is the most exciting. I started taking improvisation workshops at ComedySportz Indianapolis this year, and level 2 begins in January. I’m really excited to see where that little adventure will take me.
I hope everyone has a fabulous time celebrating the new year!
Tonight, I went to ComedySportz in Downtown Indy to watch one of their shows. I’ve recently started taking improv classes there, and I got a couple free passes to check it out. My belly hurts from laughing so much, it was hilarious.
The show was called “Oz, Unscripted.” It had the basics of the original story of the Wizard of Oz, but with multiple twists and audience participation. We wrote different movie quotes, funny sayings and song lyrics on pieces of paper, and the actors would use them throughout the whole show, grabbing them from buckets placed on the stage. They also gave a lot of opportunity to shout out random things. So for this show, they were in the land of AL, Dorothy was from Machu Picchu (which I thought was really funny because my boyfriend was just there a couple of days ago), and Toto was a badger. The scarecrow was in need of some feminine parts, the tin man needed some moxy (whatever that means), and the lion needed a boat. There were six people playing the main characters, which included one of the men playing a couple of the women (which is pretty classic).
The class I started taking at ComedySportz Indy is Improv 101, learning the basics of improvisation. I’m really excited to take more classes (we’ve only had two classes so far) and to improve my improv. Ha, say that five times fast. Seeing this show really got me pumped to keep going with improv. If you know me at all, I like to act foolish, and being able to act foolish with 20 other foolish people is a good time.
