A lifetime of Movies

by jshedlund-299-229566 | created - 22 Feb 2012 | updated - 22 Feb 2012 | Public

A work in progress.

Imagine if I had put my movie watching talent towards something productive, huh?

I could have been learning how to play an instrument, studied to become a doctor, or learned a new language or two.

I could even have used that time to improve my hockey game, tennis game, or been practicing my golf swing.

What a waste of time, or is it?
