The academic world, she said, was too isolating and lonely.
Yeah. For me too, I think.
On another note - I think it's really interesting how several of the stars from my childhood and adolescence have found ways to reinvent themselves without completely trashing what they were back then. This thing with Danica McKellar is one. Another is Wil Wheaton's blog. I'm sure there are more. I guess it's just nice to see child stars find their way to non-fucked-up adulthood.
