My jokes were becomings stagnant and tired. I wasn’t feeling funny.
I lose it once and a while and that simply means I have to stop and calm my soul.
So I thought I’d share with you a few jokes/ideas/premises here:
1. I have a lot of hobbies!! Or let me translate that for you… um… I’m single.
2. I love my studio apartment because the carpet is beige and brown. My boogers blend in perfectly.
3. It bugs me when a friend loses their phone for one second and they scream me, “Omg! I lost my phone! Can you call it?” I now answer by saying, “Wait! Did you use your eyes that God gave you? You spoiled little bitch.”
4. Celebs that are on the red carpet pose so seriously. You can be sure if I were on the red carpet I would smile like the cheshire cat. I would also blame my farts on Scarlett Johansson.
5. I sometimes think people want to be famous just so they can have a photo taken of them without make-up and holding a coffee cup.
That we’re unique enough. I don’t know. Everyone is worthy of the prize they work for. I know that God wants me to pace and grow. I am immature in many ways and I must must learn patience. I must learn seriousness and work ethic.
I am happy that I worked on my EP and that I am able to share the songs with my fans. I hope they love them and know that I put the work in.
I love not having a boyfriend. I am being completely real here. I love that everyday I can decide my schedule and do anything I please. I love that I am blessed to be so attracted to many hobbies and crafts. I indulge my emotions in stand-up, writing jokes, writing songs, making jewelry, crocheting scarves, drawing…
Thank goodness I don’t have to deal with arguments and feeling like a man needs to take care of me. I no longer pity myself as I once did. ”Oh boo hoo. I don’t have love.” Nope. It’s a blessing. The grass is always greener and I am aware that my grass is greener and has sunshine.
Yes of course, someday, there will be a person that will make me think different. But for now, it’s my priorities. I have so much love everywhere. I truly forget that being in a relationship exists. I go against the grain and not have to be somebody’s somebody. I have so much fun with me that I forget. Someday I will share, but for now I will spoil myself. <3
Man, I’m feeling gloomy. I don’t feel funny at all. I feel cluttered and closed. I feel confused of who I am all of a sudden. It could have been the fact that I spent two days with my Mom. Something about her spirit causes me to feel quiet and sad. I can’t be myself around her. Or…. could it just be family gatherings in general? Does the spirit of “bubbly me” feel smashed when surrounded by family? Sometimes we are never enough or we are never doing the right thing. I get incredibly tired of people asking “what’s new?” “what are you working on?” “why don’t you have a boyfriend?” I answer with “Oh same ol!- things are good and no boyfriend, but my cat rocks.” What else am I supposed to say? That’s my honest answer. ”Oh I am so, so sorry I am not on a TV show cause it’s that fucking easy. Oh I am so sorry I don’t have a boyfriend- I should definitely shop for one.”
Why can’t I answer with, “I am fine. I feel content. Things are moving along.”
Also, I enjoy throwing a swear word around here or there. Not often, but only when I truly feel it. Sometimes there is are no words that can substitute for “fuck” or “bullshit” or “cunt”.
If you ever go work out at an LA gym, I’m telling you, you must bring an iPod! Because if you don’t, you will have to exercise to the sound of actors talking really loud on their phones about themselves. I had this happen to me recently. The guy just would not stop talking about his acting reel and how him and his manager make a good team.
Those are the people man! Those are the people- All talk but no do!
EXERCISE AND SHUT THE HELL UP! These people usually sit on their butts. Go outside and talk on your phone if you have an important call! Whenever I go to the gym I leave my damn phone in my car. I run and lift weights with only Eminem playing in my ears for a solid hour. It’s my therapy time away from work.
<3 Be good to yourself.

It’s interesting how, lately, I have such an urge to write jokes about my family. It’s so, so wonderful to write about those concepts, because not one other person can take that away from me. I’m not even talking about making fun of my family. Just real stories that I cherish. Steve Simeone is a great comedian to look up if you want to hear great stories about childhood and family. I mean, unbelievable. He deserves more credit. See him live. Trust me. I have never seen a comic touch every single persons heart in the crowd. He knows how to capture them, shut them up, and get them on his side, specifically his heart. His jokes are all written with love.
Anywho… Just gotta keep pumping the writing daily. Keep pushing out the truth. It’s such a gift to share!
I am truly looking forward to Thanksgiving week. I find it the best time of the year. It’s not about gifts. It’s about family. FAMILY. Every year I wear my good ol pullover Thanksgiving sweater. It’s so old and falling apart, but it’s such a tradition for me. I won’t let it go.
Love, Melissa Villasenor
