300/365 – Monologue Test

I think I’m one of those people who fears success.  Or, at least, I think that my behavior is what that term refers to.  The idea that when you have  a success, you can either relish in it, or you see the responsibility and work that comes with that success and it scares you.  “Will I be able to do this?  Do I have the ability to do this?  Please don’t fuck this up, me.”  This isn’t always the case, but when it matters, all of my nervous anxiety kick into high gear — like 5th gear — and I get prickles of tension all over my body. — just the opposite of Stallone:

Today I got some great news… I’m one of 6 people being considered for the Conan O’Brian Monologue Internship.  They only take 3 people, so I have a 50/50 chance.  Still, my body just kicked into high anxiety.  They want us to take a premise test next Friday . . . basically we get an hour to scan the internet for premises for jokes.  Not actual jokes, but more of a set up for jokes.

This is my dream job, and I don;t want to screw this up . . . but man, I just am nervous as all get out.  I don;t even like thinking about it.  So, I’m going to go read the news — if I practice, I’ll be calm, and I can nail this.  Wish me luck.
