There's several reasons... but it may have came down to Improv being the love of my troupemate's lives, while for me it's just one of my hobbies. And at times I got resentful of the time I was spending with it that I could've spent elsewhere. I think it's the right thing for the troupe, and the right thing for me.
You know, this feels like breaking up. It seems to elicit some of the characteristics feelings: doubts on whether I did the right thing, a feeling of loss, sadness, what am I going to do now, and also... relief.
So what's going to happen with my improv life? I don't know, I doubt I will completely break free because it is Andy's passion. And just because I no longer am in a troupe doesn't mean I won't still be part of the community.
I wish IFE the best, and am rooting for it to have a wildly successful career. After all, I do take credit for starting the troupe :)
Gosh. So many things happened this week. And it's still not over... I think I'll really enjoy drinking tomorrow night.
