Hello, 2019!

2018 has ended, but it started a new chapter in the story called "My Life".

List of accomplishments in 2018:

-Performed my first two private stand up comedy gigs.

-The first and only comedy club in Iceland, The Secret Cellar, opens and I started working as a bartender.

-Co-created two stand up comedy shows for the Reykjavik Fringe Festival; “My Voices Have Tourettes” and “Thor vs Jesus”.

-Performed stand up comedy in a festival for the first time in my life in three shows; “My Voices Have Tourettes”, “Thor vs Jesus”, and the “Goldengang Comedy Variety Show”.

-Started actively trying to stop suppressing my tics.

-A news article was written about my show “My Voices Have Tourettes”.

-Co-created the only comedy game show in Iceland, Seat Filler.

-“My Voices Have Tourettes” and “Seat Filler” became weekly shows at The Secret Cellar.

-Became a manager at The Secret Cellar (or as I like to put it, I became the first person with Tourette Syndrome to become a manager of a comedy club in Iceland. It’s the first and only comedy club in Iceland, but I’ll still take the win!).

-Was placed in charge of planning an event at the club and it was a success!

-Started performing percussive guitar in public for the first time.

-Guide To Iceland wrote an article about “My Voices Have Tourettes”.

-Sang a song in karaoke that I always dreamed of being able to sing and, for the first time ever, was able to sing it because of not suppressing tics as much anymore.

-Performed stand up comedy at a school to promote "My Voices Have Tourettes".

-Performed stand up comedy for a private Christmas party.
