I would like to say I’m one of those people who doesn’t complain about things, but a) I don’t actually believe “those” people exist and b) who are we kidding? I have a list of pet peeves as long as my arm. Some of those pet peeves are improv-related, some simply have to do with people who annoy the crap out of me. None of whom are you, lovely readers.

What I honestly try NOT to complain about are things that I choose to do to improve myself or my life in some way. Sure, there are some exercises in improv class that are not my favorites, for whatever reason. Maybe some push me way far out of my comfort zone, while some just aren’t as fun to me as others. We all have our personal preferences. If asked, I’ll be honest whether or not I like a particular game or exercise, but I won’t complain about doing them because I see the value in all the exercises we do.
