My "Waking Sleeping Beauty" Experience (Sort of a Review)

I've always heard people talk about life changing experiences, but up until now I never believed they were true. I always thought they were simply exaggerated statements by helpless romantics. But a few weeks ago, I experienced a life changing moment and now I'm a believer. It came to me in the form of a documentary called Waking Sleeping Beauty, a film that follows the rough history of Walt Disney Pictures from 1984 to 1994. When my good friend and I left the theater, it was that moment that I told him to remember this day, because that was the day that I decided that I wanted to make animated films. It's something that I've always wanted but I've never had the confidence to peruse it. Well, you're reading it here. As God as my witness, I will become an animator!

In case you were wondering, Waking Sleeping Beauty is really good. Check it out if it's playing anywhere near you.
