Reality struck tonight: I AM NOT SUPERWOMAN 🤷🏼♀️ I thought that I could work a 12 hour shift at the hospital, run a virtual event for my business, AND get a 40 minute, intense workout in, and be awake again at 5am. 🤔
Okay, just reading all of that is exhausting 😴
Unfortunately, my workout was compromised to about 15 minutes, but what I learned from this: I CAN do all of those things in one day, I just need to plan better 😉
Whether it’s your job, your workouts, your side biz, it’s all about progress, not perfection 👌🏻 .

Moving through mid-week like 🐎.
Social anxiety, it is SUCH A BITCH to deal with. I love being social and hanging out with like minded people, but to get ready, prepare and then go is like a slow tortuous process that 9 times out of 10 I cancel because it’s just TOO HARD. But man am I lonely and crave friends. Who’s with me? Well today we had a play date with new friends and I almost canceled but decided at the last minute I NEEDED to go. With a new town and new life, I needed some new local friends. Well I’m so glad we went because the sweet fam we met is Incredible and deals with social anxiety too! We both confessed we both almost canceled today but the craving of a new friend won. I’m glad to say I found a new friend to have in my corner and we are looking forward to many play dates to come! #socialanxiety #dontletitgetyou #fightdontflight #mentalhealthawareness #live #peace #love #kindness #makingfriends #newtown #newadventures #heckyes #drinkingtime #imexhausted
Reminiscing of the last time I felt joy, which was 3 months ago scarfing down frozen yogurt in a department store. #imexhausted
It was a big day for these cats! You KNOW I cried on my way out the kindergarten room, but quickly had to get it together to go teach my “other” kids. It was a pretty great day! ❤️
Edinburgh Chronicles Day 9 (Part 1)
Yesterday I had my 3rd gig in a row pulled. I got one person in and asked if he wanted to go ahead with the gig? He said: “If 10-more people show up yeah, don’t want to be here on my own.” We then waited. Nobody else showed. And the room was soon empty again.
Thankfully David Tsonos's gig The Drunk and Heckle show had bodies. And let it fly. Started heckling the audience before they had a chance. And sent their heads spinning (with mild delight 😂) with the DUP bit. Enjoyed the gig. Was nice to be back on stage.
I've been broadcasting my own failure for 9 days now. If this is why I’m meant to be at the fringe than so be it. Have been booking a lot more compilation shows to get stage time, and now beginning to get further and further away from The Mockingbird, which can only be progress sadly.
Found out tonight that the venue that my show #unhinged
is being held, The Mockingbird, will be shut down after the #edfringe
due to lack of business. I was informed of this by the bar staff. So this was quiet literally a cash grab job. Lesson learned.
One of the main bright points of this fringe is the help and support that I have received from other Irish and International comedians. It's been truly amazing and I am grateful to all the sound heads who have reached out and helped me through what has been a nightmare so far. Fair play to you all. You're all greatly appreciated. I'm grateful to know so many good hearted people who understand the grind. You’ve made this journey to Edinburgh a great success by simply being yourselves.

What was that you were saying? You didn't get up too early?
Part of that early morning was clogging a toilet that over-ran onto the floor and leaked downstairs into the kitchen and laundry room. Yesterday started with some extreme fits from Paisley who refused to go to school and it took an hour to get her to go in but she still wouldn't go so a counselor had to come take her. They are really trying to teach me patience this week. #imexhausted #someonepleasecomegetthesechildren #notsohappinefs
Sometimes you gotta modify just to get through. I’m having a really bad day but then there’s my roommate coming in with the tough love 💕 I hate him now but I’ll love him when I’m looking hella hot for my Christmas photos with pat in a few months and love the body I’m in. Progress right ?? #workingout #imexhausted #gettinghealthy #doitfortheprogress #rushpike
