And! Last night, I got my name picked out of a hat, and I got to go up on the stage and do a set with North Coast. Freestylin', beatboxin', and straight-up improv. When else can I be an old man freestyling about General Tso or a nebbish dropping science about Pearl Paints and not have people look at me weird? I even got to hang out with the gang afterwards. Even if they don't have any slots open up on the regular, I've been meeting with some of my classmates from their (NC's) workshop, and we've been practicing a bit. Maybe we'll start performing sometime in the future?
All in all, feeling good. For a change.
