Money vs. Happiness

money-vs-happiness

Take out your nap mats, kids, and gather around IBBB in a semi-circle because it’s story time.  Similar to how Jesus told stories to the lepers, I shall tell a story to you.  It does not involve fish of any kind.  Quiet please.

As you’ve been following me on this blog for the past 2 years you know that I’ve been trying my hardest at selling out.  I even picked up and moved from Boston to sunny NYC to try and break into (legally) the entertainment biz any way I could.  While I’ve had some small successes along the way, I’ve recently found myself in an interesting situation.

You see, last week I was at a complete crossroads in my life and, for the first time ever, I had to sit and choose between money and happiness.  Seems easier to do until the opportunity presents itself to you.  Long story short, I had to decide between my insanely well paying job at a major network in New York City, but is focused on the business side of things…..or leaving all of it behind to become a producer on a new television (late-night talk show that will begin airing in a few months) with my focus on producing the celebrity and musician interviews and possibly even doing a little writing here and there.  Downside, money.  Downside, peace out to my 30th floor apartment.  Upside, peace out to corporate America.  Upside, following my dream.

I’ve decided to follow my dream.  My last day of my corporate job is this Friday. 

I couldn’t be more excited.  I felt like I’ve been dreaming for the past few weeks.  I started this blog as a creative outlet for me and hoped it would one day catch on, be seen by the right people, and they would just “get it” and “get me.”  The fact that all of this has paid off could not be more insane for me.  I could go off on a tangent about “putting your mind to something” and “anything is possible” and “if I can beat the odds, so can you” but I won’t.  Give me a few drinks and I will.

Once I am at liberty to talk specifics about the show, I will of course be promoting the absolute piss out of it right here on good old IBBB.  I have no reason to stop or shutdown this blog.  The fact is, I still love it.  I love recapping horrible shows.  I love you guys getting into debates in the comment section.  So, for now, the blog stays.  I look forward to you all following me on this insane journey and I really thank each and every one of you for reading and commenting every day.

So now I’m off my soapbox.  In the end, I’m still hoping this somehow gets me on The Hills, allows me to place Tyra Banks in a headlock, bring Harriet Carter to television, take that little bitch Bindi Irwin to Judge Judy for being a little bitch, getting my ass on Intervention, and the list goes on and on and on.

Ok, business as usual.

Nowhere but up!
