A lifetime of Moviesby 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?
