I Believe...

...that people just want to belong. We want to feel like we belong to our family, our work, our groups or clubs. We all want to be affirmed and validated. If we don't find it one place, we look for it somewhere else. I think that's why improv is so popular. Of course, you belong. Everyone belongs. Except for that one douchebag who tries too hard to be funny and keeps walking through my object work.

...that being pissed off and not saying anything only means you're going to say it later - to that person or to an innocent by-stander - and you will probably sound like a crazy person.

...that things don't always go the way you want them to, but they usually go the way you think they will.

...that all there is, really, is the here and now. The future doesn't exist and the past has expired. It's only in this present moment that you really have any power to affect anything.

...that I'm not really sure why we do anything ever at any time. What difference does it make? We're all going to die. Things are getting worse. People are greedy and stupid and ruin things for everyone else. People are dying every second from starvation, exposure, lack of healthcare, violence... Piranha 3D looks really cool, though!
