Big things have small beginnings.
I heard that in Prometheus this past weekend and, considering my current lot in life, I have to believe it. I was super hyped to see this blog mentioned in the paper a few weeks ago. I was honored to be asked to do a guest spot on the internet radio show shortly after and then to find myself as the Review of the Day for Yelp yesterday was an even bigger shock. Granted, it was just the DC area’s Review of the Day, but still that’s a lot of people to compete against.
I really want to believe that there is something to be had from this whole “writing” thing, but I can’t lie and say that all of the people inside my head are in agreement. Everyone’s blogging these days. I’m not the first person to talk about raising a kid. The English major inside of me weeps at the gigantic grammatical error that this blog has become. The future “I want to be able to get a job” me wonders if I’ve completely lost my mind by posting some of these things under my real name.
But deep, deep down inside there is a microscopic me standing there on a tiny pedestal wearing a Superman cape and looking off into the distance thinking “I’m gonna be famous one day!” I neglect to mention that “realistic me” has that little guy and the pedestal he’s standing on locked inside a glass jar, on the top shelf in the back of the closet of a room in the basement that he doesn’t go into. Still…he’s there.
