From the future

20-some hours spent traveling actually wasn’t as bad as it could have been, since on international flights that are essentially trial periods of purgatory, they have this whole cache of tv shows and movies that you can watch. Unfortunately, my ADD and quest to optimize my experience meant that I would watch 10-30 minutes of a movie and then decide I should try something else.

I finally found something that wasn’t so bad- Dead Poets Society-then my mother leans over about 50 minutes in and asks, “doesn’t he commit suicide in the end because of his father’s disapproval?”

I suppose it wasn’t an entire loss; we had already passed the inspirational part of the movie and were then getting into the pain of adolescence blah blah blah blah blah
