I'm not really sure what I want my New Years Resolutions to be for 2012 because when I look back on this past year - 2011, everything turned out pretty cool.
But here they are in particular order is what I'll be working on for 2012:
#1 - For 2011, I really didn't make that much money from stand up comedy. My goal in 2012 is to get more booked in stand up comedy and make some serious cash.
For one thing, the money I was making off my stand up gigs in the previous years paid off my credit cards. This past year I accumulated some serious debt on my credit cards and it was a bitch trying to pay off with the money I was making from my restaurant tips. I could not have done it without my annual casino per cap and with help from my brother, so thanks bro.
And not to mention my dental bill from the Indian clinic kicked my ass too. The front desk people at the Urban Indian Health said I could postpone my balance but I wanted to knock it out because if I didn't, that bill would have stuck with me for a long time.
#2 - For now, my big thing in 2012 will be not to spend money I don't have. I still have my Fed Return and Indian Trust Fund Settlement checks coming so that will help me move around if I need to travel.
I have some leads for other gigs but until those fall through, I can't count on them.
#3 - Its no big surprise that I have been wanting to move out my moms house and start my new life in Los Angeles, California. To make that happen, first I need a car because I am not going no where near L.A. without my personal wheels. The public transportation is not like it is here in the Bay Area where you really don't need a car.
So for next year, I'll be concentrating on saving my pennies for my big move and a car. I could leave right now but I don't want to leave the Bay Area in debt. The Bay Area has been my real home and has always treated me so well even when back in the 90's a psychic told me there's nothing here for me anymore and that I should move on. She was so wrong and I was very happy to have started my stand up comedy career in San Francisco, California.
#4 - Health wise, starting tomorrow I'm going to make an effort to eat better and maintain a decent weight size for my body.
For the past two months I've been jogging regularly and I feel all of that might be going down the drain if I'm headed out to McDonald's after each run.
#5 - I really do want to invest into a better wardrobe because my weight problem has stopped me from buying better clothes.
I really do hate wearing sweats but they're so comfortable. I'm sure everyone who sees me in SF is tired of seeing me wear them all the time. Either that or I have to buy some new pairs and get rid of these ones.
#6 - I will say this, I'm not one of those comedians who get shit handed to them on a silver platter, I've had to work hard for everything I have. I would be nice if I got picked up by a big time talent agency and didn't have to carry stress load for getting booked or always having to find work for myself.
#7 - I really do have to stop wasting my time talking to straight dudes who never give me any dick. Don't get me wrong, I love all my straight guys friends but damn, lets go guys, start coughing it up.
#8 - I have to get more involved with the local casting groups in San Franciso. That's one big thing I know I can count on for picking up some extra change. Hell yeah I can stand on a movie set as an extra and get paid for not doing shit.
#9 - I really hope Adele tours next year and hits the Bay Area. I would so love love love to see her in concert. Somewhere late this past year I became a huge fan and now, shes all I listen too.
#10 - Lets see, I already asked for more big dick encounters in 2012 right? Okay, just making sure I got my bases covered. haha just playing no but seriously, my big thing for 2012 will be to stay the fuck off the internet.
Alright guys in 2012, I just know 2012 is going to be a fabulous year, end of the world or not.
