A memory

This one time in an Idea Development class I had, we were giving the task of picking a fictional or historical figure that we thought we were most similar to and present it to the class.

I was initially going to pick Charles Foster Kane, and I had some sort of serious and depressing reasons to back it up, but then after most of the class had gone and and done their silly self-comparisons to Britney Spears or Ari Gold that made everybody giggle, I chickened out and changed it to Jerry Seinfeld at the last second and made up some bullshit reasons to back it up. But going with my first idea really would have bummed people out and been really out of place.

But I still think I’m a lot like Charles Kane sometimes.
