So you want to be a snowboarder or a writer but you don't want to make the sacrifices necessary to be one. I love how popular movies generate temporary interests in things... I found myself wanting to be a Kung Fu martial artist after watching Bruce Lee but I could never get beyond yellow belt. I don't know why... why sometimes I want to be something I am not. Well, I really don't write.. especially technically.. or grammarically... but I recently applied to write for the Examiner and it looks like they might let me write for them. Finally I can be a writer or discover that I am not much of writer at all... time will tell.
