Chad Sunshine performing ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Being Wildly Unhappy’ at Slamalamadingdong, on September 29, 2016.
Chad Sunshine (unfortunately not his actual name) is a teacher, poet, jiu jiteiro, and nap-taker from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. With a flair for honesty (and self-deprecation), he writes to tell stories and connect with people on topics ranging from love to privilege to death and beyond. If you ever have to say goodbye to him, he may impart his entire life’s motto onto you in four simple words: “Have fun, be good.”
