Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton
This one is for fans only, fans of Wil Wheaton that is, star of Stand by Me, Toy Soldiers and Star Trek The Next Generation, and more recently of Leverage (on occasion). Wheaton's story reminded me of how we focus on our mistakes and think everyone else is to, but of course they're not because they all have their own crap to think about. In Wheaton's eyes his big mistake was quitting Star Trek and he spent much of his post-Star Trek years trying to "Prove to Everyone that Quitting Star Trek Wasn't a Mistake." Eventually he gets past this but it takes awhile, a long while. It's a good read, but again, for fans only.
