While I was tearing into my Chipotle last night, I turned to “Made,” one of the few shows I enjoy watching on MTV. Most of you are probably familiar with the premise, but for those that aren’t, the show takes people who are the complete opposite of the person they want to become, and works with them to change them into a “different” person.
The show is fun because most of the people start out terribly pathetic at what they set out to do, and by the end of the hour-long show they’re at least tolerable at it. Sometimes they even surpass “tolerable” and move right on to “pretty impressive.”
I’ve often wondered to myself what I would do if I got to be made. It’d be hard to find something since I’m pretty amazing at almost everything.
Honestly, I’d like to be made into an author, but I’m not sure how well that would translate on the show. It would be great to have an established author teach me how to become disciplined and develop healthy writing habits. I’d probably have to do something lame like surfing or lion-taming.
So what about you? What would you like to be made into?
