Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

Jenee Darden speaking at Creative Mornings I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book  and building my speaking career!  You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life. I'm here to tell you not to give up.  You know, death inspires life. A number of my relatives and friends have passed away, ranging in

Why So Serious Christian Bale?

I hate when cute actors ruin the fantasy and show their "other side." I just went on TMZ's website and listened to "Batman" star Christian Bale curse out a photography director. Scratch that, he CUSSED OUT the photography director. The guy walked onto a set while Bale was filming a scene for a new "Terminator" film. I can understand Bale being P'd off because having to re-shoot a scene wastes time and money. And I don't know if anything happened prior to the incident to cause Bale's reaction. But did he really have to rip into the man like that? I'm one of 11 million+ jobless Americans. Yet Bale who makes millions per film is trippin' off of a careless photography director? Must be nice.

Now the question becomes who is more wrong in this situation: Bale or the person who released the audio?

Tell me what you think.

  1. LOL. He sounds like an ass, but some people have to get cursed at to learn. I bet he'll never do that again on any set. If anything, Christian was trying to help him stay employed on future films.

  2. LOL! That's another way to look at it. Cussin' me out is actually helping me out. Well somebody was mad at Christian b/c they leaked the recording of the rant.
