I think I would rather be a soundboard operator for some band and just travel the country doing soundboardy things. I have no musical talent so being on stage is out of the question. But I figure I could learn how to tweak the knobs on a soundboard and get ugly groupies that the band doesn't want.

At any moment I would probably answer with something different, but right now the first thing that came to mind would be Peace Corps in a town near the ocean in French West Africa. I could totally do that, but I have to get back up the momentum for it.

Other than that, I guess I would rather be living in New York City and being a hip popular young painter. That would rule.

have you run a soundboard for your high school theatre department? i know the campus theatre groups at my college always are looking for sound board ops, and it seems like a good place to start.

yeah, you're me.

only that I want to learn Spanish so I can do this maybe in South America somewhere. As for painting.. I'm really nothing compared to my sister, but I'd like to try... I wouldn't care about being popular, and it doesn't have to be NYC...but yeah...

You and I should go to Tate Modern in London together...at some point :)
