was a theater major in college for a while and out of the blue, he's been asked to take a part in a play.
What's interesting is his reason for switching his major. Theater Majors! Exactly the same reason I gave for switching my major.
I remember the conversation I had with my advisor (he thought I was a pretty good writer *patting myself on the back*) when he tried to talk me out of switching. I gave him a couple of BS reasons; I can't spell or type and therefore it takes me twice as long to format and finish my assignments, I don't think it's right that people should get acting class credit for being in the audience for an infomercial, the smell of clove cigarettes makes me physically ill, and I learned a hell of a lot more about life failing physics lab with my jock lab partner than I did sitting around in the dark reading Buried Child with a bunch of Bjork lookalikes and hairdressers.
Neither here nor there, I don't think I had the talent he thought I had, plus I wanted to graduate with my class, so I got out.
I'd love to do something creative again, this blog was supposed to be a creative outlet, not the cheap way to get around the e-mail filters at work. Maybe it will be some day, maybe when I'm sitting up late with the new baby, but not now, I just don't have it in me.
