My Christmas list when I was twelve read:
* Golden Retriever
At the time, I was obsessed with acting and thought it was as simple as my parents going out, finding me an agent, and letting me be in commercials. I thought the only reason I wasn't famous by the time I was fifteen was because my parents wouldn't let me be. I didn't realize it was more because I wasn't super cute, didn't have commercial talent, and totally lacked "it." I was in my early twenties when I finally did realize that, as well as the fact that aspiring to be famous was a lost cause and that simply creating something for the sake of creating it was so much more rewarding. In fact, I've realized that I probably wouldn't be able to stand being famous. I'd much rather just be good at something. All that aside, tonight I met with an agent. I don't want to say much more, except that my parents had nothing to do with it.
