Just finished watching Cloud Atlas. Usually, as of late, going to the movies has been a strong disappointment for me. But this film differed from the mostly disappointing movies that have come out lately. Obviously I have my fair share of critiques to say, but overall I thought it was a $10 well spent. I am not here to do movie reviews though, the reason for bringing the movie up is the message of the film. I will admit, I am a sucker for revolution stories, but I think I watched this movie at the right time. Being election time I think I have been thinking more about political ideology, and the movie has a strong emphasis on such subject matter.
Movie aside, today I have been reminded much about government. Be it from texting friends about singing the national anthem during a worship service, looking up books I want to read, or watching a film about oppression, I do like thinking about it. I have an undying passion for revolution. So it is easy to get me worked up. I have much to say on the subject, but that is a topic for another time.
Overall, I had a successful day of procrastination. So it is now time to do some major homework. Beforehand, I figured it should blog a little bit, get this ball rolling. I have done my fair share of relaxation for a while. The semester is long, but is coming to an end soon, I can smell it in the air. Living the dream, running through school to see what tomorrow has in store.
