KATE LOICE
Ok, I have to ask. Are you seriously trying the sober life/ are you seriously an alcoholic looking for sobriety? I sometimes can’t tell how serious you’re being 🙂
 SEAN KAMP
Dead serious about getting over booze, but weed and perscriptions? No. And cocaine I don’t touch.
KATE LOICE
Haha yeah, and it would be weird to sober up from alcohol but not coke
How is it going so far?
Oh, and feel free to tell me to mind my own beezwax
 SEAN KAMP
Hard. No! Please ask. I had a horrendous night when jealousy reigned king!
KATE LOICE
Oh, good, I’ve been wanting to ask you about your journey so far and offer my ear whenever you may need
I heard you joke about it and saw your AA book weeks ago, but I know some people can be kinda weird about others asking about it and I wasn’t totally sure if you were actually working towards sobriety (with booze)
 SEAN KAMP
Wow! You turned my day around here!
KATE LOICE
Oh!!! Yay!!!
Well, I hope for the better, haha
 SEAN KAMP
I have a question. Are u serious about stand-up?
Bad question.
?
KATE LOICE
That depends what your’re asking. I am seriously working my my voice and working on making the topics I want to talk about funny. Though, I have no desire to be a “Stand Up Comic” or for my claim to fame being “Stand Up Comedy.” I’m still figuring out how I want to use my comedy and if I’ll ever be good enough to make SOMETHING of it. OF what? I don’t know. It could help me with my personal training/life coaching. It could help increase my platform and help me talk about serious issue. Or maybe it’ll get me a fun acting role (though those aren’t really my aspirations either).
KATE LOICE
I have no idea what I want to be “when I grow up.” But I know I am passionate about health, happiness, comedy, laughter and equality
I know I am funny, but I’m still figuring out how to be my best funny
and how to handle crowds and fear and doubt
 SEAN KAMP
Let me go home. Get on my computer, and chat
KATE LOICE
And a good questions 🙂
ok! I have an appointment at 1 but free til then!
 SEAN KAMP
Yay! Thanks!
KATE LOICE
:-*
 SEAN KAMP
Hey, what’s up?
KATE LOICE
Yoyoyoyo
 SEAN KAMP
Stuck on I35
was. now i’m home
KATE LOICE
WHEW!
 SEAN KAMP
okay…so
KATE LOICE
SO
I think I babbled last
 SEAN KAMP
Okay. Well that’s cool…about standup and whatnot
Listen. How many week/months are you in your pregnancy? Just curious because you don’t LOOK pregnant
KATE LOICE
haha, that’s because I think I’m approaching 8 weeks
It wont start even kidna showing until maybe week 10, and then it will just be a bump
i’d have to wear something tight to see it. right now you can’t tell at all. It’s only the size of a blueberry 🙂
 SEAN KAMP
Are you single? I mean, not married?
KATE LOICE
Oh, very single
SEAN KAMP
Why? You’re very cute and energetic
I don’t mean that as in YOU should get married
KATE LOICE
HA! Have you seen my facebook? I’m opinionated, confident (most of the time), I speak my mind and I’m extremely accepting of others — people HATE me
I get what you mean
SEAN KAMP
People hate me too
I mean HATE!
Like, I lose friends SO easily
Always have.
KATE LOICE
I gathered that, and reading your facebook posts recently I thought “this guy is a lot like me! “
SEAN KAMP
Bipolar disorder
KATE LOICE
Ahhhhh, yes
Depression, borderline personality disorder, bulimia, severe adhd
SEAN KAMP
I fell in luv immediately….the “entitled white men” bit you did!
KATE LOICE
bahahahahaaha!
you telling me how much you liked it changed my whole writing process
now i only joke about the stuff – I – want to joke about, which is the real stuff like entitled white men and women being more of a minority in this country than any race or men making rape jokes AND people laughing at them
or domestic abuse because, fuck it, I can
or saying the n word with a hard ER to make a point that You can’t just not say ONE derogatory term
SEAN KAMP
You should come to Love Goat tonight. Always entitled white men there!
KATE LOICE
Oh man, the other week was my first time checking it out
SEAN KAMP
Throw ’em the book! I lose my cool with them too….for their stupidity
KATE LOICE
and I’ve been DYING to go back to squash those frat boys
SEAN KAMP
YES! You were there. I’m sorry!
KATE LOICE
haha
SEAN KAMP
But you left, right?
KATE LOICE
I stayed for the whole thing, but I didn’t go up
I like to observe a mic and the atmosphere before i throw myself up there
learn the crowd…which….were disgusting frat boys or disgusting frat boys that turned into disgusting men
SEAN KAMP
bloated like me by 31.
KATE LOICE
hehe
SEAN KAMP
How old are you?
Self-deprecation is bad. People say I need to stop.
My guy friends. That I care “too much about what other people think.”
I’m a standup comic. OF COURSE, my life is all about being popular
or trying to be popular and win laughs.
KATE LOICE
Well
I’m 26, almost 27 (nov 2)
And your friends are right
I think the secret of a great comic is one who doesn’t give a damn what others think
particularly what they think of them off stage
SEAN KAMP
I need someone to help me with my confidence before I go on stage.
KATE LOICE
<—– ding ding ding ding
SEAN KAMP
YES!!!
KATE LOICE
People laugh about it but I am a life coach…it’s what I do
even when I can’t find my own sometimes, I know how to help others find theirs.
SEAN KAMP
That’s great!
You know, Kate? You’re awesome. You actually that girl who ALSO doesn’t give a toss about judgmental assholes.
LIFE COACH! I buy it. Where does the pep in your step come from? You’re always “up” you know?
KATE LOICE
Wow
Haha, it’s so weird when I realize that’s the person I am now
I think the pep comes from the years of darkness
It’s because of the judgmental assholes and it’s because of the hate and pain
SEAN KAMP
Preach it…
KATE LOICE
It took me 13 years of total chaos and destruction to start building THIS Kate
SEAN KAMP
Same here!
KATE LOICE
Sadly, though, most of the hate I get these days has NOTHING to do with the pain I caused as an alcoholic
SEAN KAMP
Age 18-30
KATE LOICE
whew!
SEAN KAMP
Now I’m 31. Feel better.
Not like super. My mania is horrible, as you well realize.
They can’t seem to fix it with the three mood stabilizers I’m on
KATE LOICE
Diet may help far more than the drugs
Nothing wrong with the mood stabilizers, but start looking into changing your diet
food has an enormous impact on neurological shiz
SEAN KAMP
It does!
Actually, I had one of the hardest nights of my life until I spoke to you.
KATE LOICE
Oh?
SEAN KAMP
I felt like I was going to die
KATE LOICE
Oh 😞
SEAN KAMP
JEALOUSY!
KATE LOICE
Ah, the beast
SEAN KAMP
Seeing a girl you care about with another dude.
KATE LOICE
eesh
I don’t have jealousy, but the baby daddy is a comic
SEAN KAMP
And then realizing it’s done….no warning, no “listen I’m seeing someone else.” Just straightup four hours socializing at Beerland
He is? Who is he?
KATE LOICE
aaaaye yi yi!!!!
That’s rough, I definitely still have issues dealing with intimacy and trust. I am almost scared of men.
Due to situations like that or just being cast off
SEAN KAMP
cast off?
I hate being cast aside.
KATE LOICE
Yeah, that’s what I meant
SEAN KAMP

 Luckily, the guy chose to yell “Stairway” at the show, making him a total toolbox.

KATE LOICE
bahaha
SEAN KAMP
And I laughed at him, not even knowing him.
Waynes World 2 Guitar Shop: “NO STAIRWAY!”
KATE LOICE
baaahahaha
yay waynes world references!
SEAN KAMP
What appointment do you have?
And I also want to see you soon to talk, so I can have a life coach, maybe?
which I think isn’t lame. Are you okay with the agnostic in me?
KATE LOICE
Ha, work. I’m a sex worker. And yes, I’d love to chat in person about whatever you want. I am okay with the agnostic in you if you are okay with the faith in me.
SEAN KAMP
You know what I realize? My heart has shitted on over and over by women
KATE LOICE
And okay with me trying to find your faith.
“uncover” your faith
SEAN KAMP
Your a sex worker?
KATE LOICE
I accept you how you are and will not try to change you, but, I will talk about faith a lot.
And yes I am
SEAN KAMP
What do you do?
KATE LOICE
If you’re ever bored, check out my blog kateloice.wordpress.com I write about Austin Comedy, my work and my sobriety
and my “issues”
I’m an escort
SEAN KAMP
Really!
Wow. That’s great, Kate!
KATE LOICE
Haha, yes. It’s actually been a large part of my recovery
and it kinda makes sense…I love my work because I make people feel good
I am th woman who doesn’t shit all over their heart
And they can be men who teach me more about life and trust, something I don’t get at all from men in the real world.
SEAN KAMP
I like sex, but I’m not very like skilled, I guess? I need liberation
KATE LOICE
haha, i don’t think most people are “skilled”
SEAN KAMP
I blew my inheritance on strip clubs in Los Angeles
Where they will fuck you.
Sex workers are often very beautiful, so that’s the draw there. Being a man, and all.
KATE LOICE
Right. Escorts especially tend to be more “dolled up”
SEAN KAMP
Oh, totally! And smarter and sophisticated. Never had an escort.
KATE LOICE
And tend to be more personable
SEAN KAMP
I hope you don’t mind talking about this with me….
I mean awesome. You got a nice bod. Should enjoy it immensely.
KATE LOICE
I don’t, I’m an open book
:)
SEAN KAMP
So, I’m not drinking anymore, okay??
KATE LOICE
okay!
SEAN KAMP
I want to go back to AA, I think, and really get serious about it.
KATE LOICE
OKay!
SEAN KAMP
I did 34 days sober!
If you fall off the horse, get back on the horse…
KATE LOICE
Ah, I was going to ask…when did you last drink?
No judgment!
SEAN KAMP
Last night. But I was not drinking for a week or so…it’s in social situations that I feel like…I MUST!
And then I end up saying something astounding
KATE LOICE
Haha
34 is awesome, and a week is awesome
But you’re going to have to decide
Are you in or out?
SEAN KAMP
I’m in.
KATE LOICE
Otherwise, you’re going to have a very, very rough journey ahead. It’s okay if you’re still out, rushing it wont help.
and it’s okay to “fall” and relapse even if you’re all in
SEAN KAMP
Wait, what do you mean “in” or “out”?
KATE LOICE
Do you want to be sober or not
from booze
SEAN KAMP
Sober!
YES!!!!! Of course!
But, I don’t like AA
KATE LOICE
OK!!!! haha, just checking 🙂
I understand that, I don’t like it myself.
I have only been to 6 or 7 meetings in the last 2 years and thats only been to get my marbles (chips)
SEAN KAMP
I need someone to challenge me to be a better friend, acquaintence, human being….
marbles…lol
“She’s lost her marbles” ~ Hook
So, this convo is starting to slow….do you have an appointment?
I need to catch up on my job
KATE LOICE
Yes, I need to get ready, you do your job thang.

I can help you with those things, let’s def meet and chat soon. Or we can chat here again if you see me online later 🙂

SEAN KAMP
Do you believe in me?
KATE LOICE
Oh, of course I do
There’s no reason not to
There’s never a reason not to
Remember, I have faith 😘
SEAN KAMP
You’re serious about it, aren’t you….
Faith I mean
KATE LOICE
Yes, I am. It took me almost 2 years of recovery to discover it
and and almsot 27 years
SEAN KAMP
Are you going to comedy tonight?
I mean, why not, right?
KATE LOICE
I think I am, want to do love goat
SEAN KAMP
See you then. I hope. I really hope.
KATE LOICE
Noted 🙂
Stay strong!
