I've been having fun on Facebook, keeping tabs on old schoolmates, and it's so interesting seeing what people are up to now. So many are married and have kids and others are out pursuing lifelong dreams. What's been really trippy is being able to look up a couple of my friends/classmates using The Internet Movie Database or IMDB for short. There are celebrities in my midst!
Back in seventh grade, I had the biggest crush on Levi Lieb, though I'm not sure he ever knew it at the time, that was always the case with me; I was a secret crusher. Anyway, he's doing really well and even just signed away his first script. According to IMDB, he's worked on a couple of movies and I'm willing to bet his resume will only grow from here.
Oddly, my ninth grade crush is on IMDB too and even has pictures up! My ninth grade crush was Brennan Taylor (who ended up being really good friends with Levi, later on, and the two did a movie together). I haven't talked to Brennan since I psuedo asked him out during our Junior year. I say psuedo because I really did it to prove to myself that I could, and even though he said sure, I knew he had a thing for one of the sophomores so I never followed up. But hey, I'm just proud of myself for doing it. He's living in LA now.
My friend Erik Denton is also on there. I went out with his brother Kenny a couple of times, and I was really good friends with his sister Sarah. Erik is just an all around nice guy, and though I haven't seen him in years, I have a feeling he's still a great guy. He's already had a starring role in a movie which is just awesome and I think he's working on something now in Georgia. Very cool.
I regularly search IMDB for movie/actor stuff and it's just crazy that I know people who are now searchable on there. Trippy I tell ya.
