Surprisingly healing 🤷🏽‍♀️

It’s been a really intense Summer of running a travel business. I’m doing my best to make people happy. I appreciate Conan and team making me happy and lifting my spiritis. Also, these little bursts of “woo woo magic”/inspiration is greatly appreciated.

Funny moments Conan too self centered

I really enjoyed the show at first but there are times when Conan is interviewing interesting people and instead of diving deeper he just waits for a chance to talk about himself and his struggles. We get it becoming a comedian is not easy but you’ve made it stop looking for pity.

Good times

As a kid you always made me laugh. Now I’m an adult and you still crack me up.
