This is a real conversation I experienced this week at work during a segment on why smarter women appear to be not having children.
::Life update: I have recently moved from Auburn to Birmingham to complete my internship so that I can graduate in December. In case you’re curious, and I’m almost positive you aren’t, I’m interning with Rick and Bubba which is a popular radio show in the southeastern US.::
Now on to what I actually meant to post about.
If childhood is anticipation to be able to do whatever you want, then adulthood is the realization that this will never happen.
My best friend got her first real job. This is so exciting because we’re following our life plans and our dreams and that’s just amazing. But it’s very frustrating for her because she’s working in a small town and she’s in a position that puts her in the public eye which means her every move will be watched. Which sucks because we’ve spent our whole lives anticipating being able to do what we want when we want and we’ve come to the startling realization that this will probably never happen.
The thing about it that I’ve found most shocking is that I don’t even mind all that much. My dreams mean the world to me. They are what motivate me. They are what make my struggles and sacrifices worth it. And because of this, I don’t mind one bit acknowledging my limitations if it means my dreams are within reach.
So Conspirators was on my Netflix queue so I threw it on my list. I didn’t really remember why I added it, but it seemed interesting enough so I didn’t question.
Okay guys, truth time.
This semester is becoming significantly more stressful than I had originally planned. The good news is, that ends on June 19th. So that’s nice. But the bad news is, until then, I’m afraid the movie watching is going to be kept at a minimum.
However, fret not my friends, because as soon as the semester is over, my only purpose in life will be watching movies. Okay. That’s not true. But I’ll have loads more time to watch movies and blog about it. So be excited.
This does mean that I may not make my original deadline. But as this is a project of my own creation, I can change the deadline if I so desire. And I desire. So I’m extending my deadline to the official end of summer. As in, the Autumn Equinox which is September 22. I’m pretty sure I can make that deadline with ease.
So thanks for keeping up with me, if you are. And thanks for reading. And thanks for being you because you are awesome. Don’t forget that. And enjoy your summer. I know I will.
So one of my final classes is Reproducing Pop Culture. Which is essentially about how everything is repeating. And one of our assignments is to journal about various aspects of pop culture that are reproductions of previous cultures. So I’ll be doing that here. Just a heads up.
This is the list of movies I’ll be watching this summer. I’ll try and keep it as updated as possible. Feel free to make recommendations! They are in no particular order and I’m not watching them in this order.
