My Missed Opportunity: Invitation to Experience “Enter the Matrix”

So, this was an actual invitation for me. Unfortunately, at the time, I had no idea. Holy cow. I can’t believe that I missed this. Then again, I didn’t have the money or the knowledge of how to get to the event. Missed opportunity. And back then, I published it as news, further cementing my ignorance toward what was being offered. It’s a shame that Warner Brothers didn’t further communicate with me to let me know just what this meant. I would have been there in a heartbeat if I had only known this was a legitimate offer for me.  I have since been to two world premieres for the Chronicles of Narnia films, one in New York and one in London.  And here I thought Warner Brothers never gave me anything.  Truth is, they tried.  I was merely young and ignorant about how these things worked.  Instead, I came across as cocky, and didn’t get invited to the World Premieres of the Matrix sequels… sigh… oh well, you live and learn.
