3/3/2021 Zzzzz....

Zack woke up early and I didn't get enough sleep and it's really hitting me right now. Had a couple of things I was thinking of writing about but I'm just too tired.

Later!

3/1/2020 Enjoying life

I mentioned Disney+ plus the other day and one relatively recent addition that's very much worth watching, besides The Muppet Show, is Pixar's Soul, which should also be getting a Blu-ray release soon. Now Pixar's movies pretty much always range from good to fantastic, so it's no real surprise that Soul is worth watching, but it really stands out from the rest of their work. Pixar has been working rather deep themes into many of their movies for a long time. Just look at Toy Story 3, Up, or Monsters U, to name a few. And Soul is no exception. But, unlike the others, Soul doesn't really even try to be a kids movie. There's enough fancy animation and cute creatures that kids probably won't be totally bored. Teenagers might be able to appreciate it more, but it's really written for adults, or least those of college age. To really get into the lessons it contains and why the movie is so brilliant, I'd have to summarize a good chunk of the plot, which I don't really want to do here. But essentially, it's about enjoying life. If we become unduly focused on grand goals, dreams, and passions, as great of those may be, we run the risk of missing out on everything else that makes life worthwhile. It's something I myself have come to realize as I've gotten older. Life rarely goes the way we envision it when we're young. That doesn't mean we should stop dreaming or striving for our goals, but we need to remember to enjoy what we do have, even the little things that make up our daily lives. If you remember to do that, you'll have a much happier and more fulfilling life, no matter where your path takes you.

2/26/2021 Happy Purim

It's Purim! Though, of course, there's limits to what we can actually do to celebrate it this year... But I'm making hamentaschen at least. Other than that, the weather is definitely improving, we've finally got two cars again, and I probably only have one more really busy week (grading plus thesis work) before things calm down a bit. On a different note, I keep meaning to write about some more of the isekai stories I came across in my research but lately it seems like I either don't have time, or just aren't in the mood. I'll get to it sooner or later though. Today is a bit of both. I've got some other stuff I need to do plus I decided to try catching up on some of the things on my DVR while working... I should have kept watching The Muppets instead.

Have a good weekend!
