squarerootof's Journal

Hi. What to say? 20-something dude carving out my niche in life and still finding those hidden talents within. Working in print/online daily media; that's the Canadian media, it should be said, so the end result is only ever gentle and contains the word "sorry!" an excessive number of times.

Living in the big, vibrant city a long way away from humble smaller-town growing-up beginnings - a dreadfully cliche circumstance to be sure, and not lost on me. My life in cinematic terms might evoke The Devil Wears Prada meets Almost Famous meets The Secret of My Success and just for the sometime writer-almost-losing-mind angle, let's throw in "meets Secret Window" too.

As one pop culture critic once quipped, "Ever wonder why there are so many movies about some small-town kid running off to the big city to pursue his dream and/or career his parents had forbid, or discover themselves? It's because most Hollywood screenwriters were lonely, introverted kids growing up in small towns, who idolized movies and movie stars, a glimpse of a better life, and actually did dream of making it in Hollywood! They just write what they know! Hmmm, and come to think of it, most of those movies should be better, and it goes to show maybe they can't write anything else that well either."

There's not much here yet on this profile, to say nothing of any actual LJ entries, but I'm just rebuilding after a long LJ hiatus, and it can only get better. If you've seen one of my posts and want to say "Hi", go ahead and friend add me or drop me a LJ message. Peace.
