So Facebook decided to put out this Year in Review thingy, where it randomly constructs a timeline of your year. Of course, I checked it out and apparently Facebook thinks my year began in October. What the what? To quote Liam Neeson in The Grey: “Fuck it. I’ll do it myself!” So, here are my highlights from 2012, narrated by Liam Neeson.
He rang in 2012 with a midnight 4 mile run in Central Park. I went for a midnight run as well. While being chased by a pack of grey wolves.
A month long residency with NYS&F at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY where he finished the first draft and did a reading of his play The Commencement of William Tan. I got a month long residency once. I was stranded in the middle of Alaska with a bunch of wolves.
With help from his fellow cohorts Kari Bentley-Quinn, Laura Pestronk, and Meredith Packer, they launched a Queens based theater arts collective called Mission to (dit)Mars and held their first mixer! My fellow cohorts all died. By wolves. Just sayin’.
He went to Ikea for the first time in his life, and survived (barely). Okay, I’ll give you that. Ikea is pretty scary.
Finished another ten minute play for the 52nd Street Project. WOLVES!!!!
Wrote a short interstitial called Sanctuary for Ma-Yi’s Stunt show Orphans of the Nightingale of the Desert, performed at the Signature Theatre on the set of David Henry Hwang’s Golden Child! Ughh. Playwrights.
It seems the theme for this past year was “always be writing.” So I vow that in 2013, I will continue to always be writing. I wish everyone a very happy New Year! And thanks Liam Neeson.
