If you read this blog, PLEASE comment on this one. It will be fun, I promise.
One of my fav things to do is reminisce about times past. I saw a movie preview the other day for the remake of Fame (can I just say "wow") and it gave me a chance to do just that...
I was a HUGE Fame buff as a kid. Loved the movie, and then the TV show. I was set and determined (I REALLY believed I could) to attend the School for the Performing Arts in NY and hang with Coco and Leroy every day...even though I had NO SKILL, ART, or TALENT to speak of.
Then came my Space Camp phase. The movie rocked my world, and my little heart dreamt of attending the actual camp with Leah Thompson and the gang, and becoming an astronaut; even though the closest I came to ever being interested in such things was my "Meterology Phase" (with my buddy Kyle) circa 1982 (which consisted of checking out books from the library and looking at clouds A LOT).
Enter Mary Lou Retton. She was my hero, and I'm sure many of you can say the same. I made my own "balance beam" that consisted of a piece of tape on the floor and "trained" to become the next great American gymnast, even though I was terrified of heights and of being upside down.
So the question is...what did you dream of being as a kid and what inspired those dreams??? (like I said, I am begging for your participation)
