I'm moving. I procrastinated in preparing for this move. Now I'm struggling.
  1. I can't shop adequately.
    I went to Target to buy cleaning supplies so I can clean my things before loading them in boxes. Instead I left Target with a Hamilton CD. 😐
  2. I can't pack adequately.
    Three boxes to fit most of things except clothes. I ended up putting my Hamilton CD in a box and moving that up independently. That is the least efficient thing ever and even Alexander would be disappointed.
  3. I can't let go adequately.
    Every time I look at something, I always think, "meh I'll use it someday." No. No I won't use it ever. I need to just let it go.

I mess up a lot when performing magic. I think the top three would be....
  1. Forgetting the secret
    So I have to take the spectator's ring, in my hand, and move it to my pocket while picking up my ring, which is in my pocket. Obviously I have to do this surreptitiously. There is a good, efficient method and on one performance, I just forgot what it was. I sat there for a solid 3 minutes awkwardly holding some lady's ring trying to remember what to do with it.
  2. Learning that girl pants don't have pockets
    A modular card to pocket routine where, in one phase, the selected card goes into a spectator's pocket. I've successfully stolen the card out of the pack and attempt to ditch it in this girl's pocket. The card gets to where I think her pocket should start and then fails to go in. Because it's not a pocket. It's a fake pocket. Why the hell?! Now I'm standing there awkwardly shoving a card into some girl's leg. Salvaging that one was fun, I'd say more but I'm running out of characters.
  3. Making Miracles
    Not all mishaps are bad. I like doing "fake" magic to disarm my spectators before hitting them with a real illusion. Sometimes, the fake magic becomes real wizardry. I took a selected card and lost it in a pack and had a spectator shuffle it. I asked another spectator to pick a number and then brazenly declared that the card's position from the top of the deck was the number picked. This was supposed to fail and I was supposed to do a "backup" trick. It worked. To this day, I don't know how.
Most of them are faces used to denote varying levels of seriousness.
  1. 1.
    The main sarcasm face.
  2. 2.
    My "what you said didn't make much sense and/or was stupid but ok." face.
  3. 3.
    Smug face.
