TODAY CHANGED HISTORY...
On New Year's Day I was bussing tables at the Rose Bowl embarrassed as fuck as I got recognized by fans as a Co-Founder of Black&SexyTV, as Deon, and Creator of #ThatGuy #TheCouple & #BecomingNia. πŸ–πŸΎ
And last Tuesday I wasn't sure if I had enough money in my account to get to a meeting at #NBCUniversal.
πŸ–πŸΎ
Thursday I got a notice from @bankofamerica that they were lowering my credit line on my credit card which is how I've been surviving...
πŸ–πŸΎ
Last night I worked as a server at a million dollar wedding replenishing a stuffed mushroom buffet. πŸ–πŸΎ
Today I almost cried watching @moonlightmov & @atlantafx take home #goldenglobes
Everything comes in due time
☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️
I got signed across the board (Writer/Director/Producer/Actress) in July to ICM Partners, one of the top 4 agencies in the world.
But I didn't tell anyone becuz I felt like i had nothing to show, nothing to celebrate.
I was still broke, still living with my mom, still only being asked if I was bringing back #thatguy.

I'd be a gottdamn lie if I said I've never had bouts of envy watching people in my circle soar.
It's hurts in this weird way... like a "fuck, I'm talented too! I wanna be on airplanes traveling, chilling in Writers rooms, eating overpriced sushi with the homies, paying bills on time, too" kinda way. Watching homies buy houses, while I'm 30 getting in trouble for not cleaning my room....
😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫
Lol... yeh... I'd be lying if I say I didn't think that.

But envy don't get you no fucking where. Hard work does though. And Tonight reminded me to push through, keep grinding and be grateful.

Got on the elevator with a dude a moment ago, I asked him "what floor?" as I hit the 2nd floor button for myself. He said the 4th floor, the top floor here. I made the fucking hotel living joke "ah, the penthouse." Crickets... #whatiswrongwithme #imbecoming #thatguy #hotellife #thankchristimflyinghometomorrow #packing #headinghome

If I were in your physical shoes what would be my idea of perfect happiness? ANSWER: BEING IN YOUR PHYSICAL SHOES. Rough life? Life.........the way you feel about it is optional. What's my greatest extravagance? ANSWER: there is nothing that is extravagant about anything. If you have the ability to imagine it, the universe MUST deliver it to you. Extravagance implies shortage or limit and there is not any of that. #meok #switch #logan #goals #actor #thatguy #florida #lottery #like4like #gofollow #indeed #canon #stayhungry #quotes #based #views #makeithappen

Cole Slaw (@coleslawtahell)

I'm just the guy with the girl everybody wants to know
Wishin' you were there alone
Wonderin' how I ever got your little hand in mine
Lookin' over at ya like "ain't she beautiful?"
I'm invisible but I stand right there and smile
You're right beside me, oh and I see the same thing they're seein'
