Replying since I have already sent my application.

I would like to become a DD.  However I tend to scratch short
term itches such as maintaining the occasional small package 
and sending in bug reports with patches.  This means I don't 
interact with anybody long enough for them to become confident
with advocating me.  Its been like that for a few years now,
and I don't see it changing in the foreseeable future.

In the mean time its become obvious I can contribute to Debian
without being a DD, so the urgency has diminished somewhat.
There are still things that I like to do but can't do without 
becoming a DD.  Things such as voting, helping out in areas 
where Debian appears to be short staffed (the NM queue seemed 
like it could of used help for a while), adding new packages
without having to beg for a sponsor, sponsoring others, and 
not having to bug Anibal to upload my packages.

And my reason for becoming an DM?  It removes one item off 
that list.
