Went to see the play for the first time yesterday on a spur-of-the-moment type thing (Mindy really likes it). I had seen the movie, however, and thought it was really good. I read a lot of the reviews and couldn't understand why they ragged on it so much. I though it was very powerful and well done. And after seeing this production, I feel even stronger about that. I didn't have my glasses so I was squinting—but that's neither here nor there.

The important part of it was that, as I was sitting there watching these people go nuts singing and performing on stage it hit me, "What the hell are you doing?"

Really simple.

I've made the mistake before of not going after what I want 100% for the sake ofconservativismm and "playing it safe." The first time was baseball—I didn't try everything I could've to make that my career and because of it I never really gave myself a shot. Something I regret but at least I learned the lesson, right?

Well last night I felt like a dumbass: for the past 5-6 months I've been getting really into Finance and Investing—reading a bunch of books and stuff on it. It's interesting, it grabs my attention, and I like it. But it's also the part of me that says, "There is no future in writing, but business is a respectable thing to do." Which is wrong. So I made up my mind to read some fiction, something entertaining, something that gets my juices going again. I've been dry for way too long. I can still do the investing stuff as a hobby, but I've got to get my priorities straightened out.

Thanks, RENT.
