There’s nothing wrong with moving across the country if you feel like it’s right or even simply if you just want to. And i’m sorry if this seems inappropriate but I need to throw it out there that global warming is real. I heard on this American life that climatologists are secretly buying second homes in places with high elevations cause global warming is really that close on the horizon. Apparently if everything is just 2 degrees warmer LA New York and Philly will all be underwater sooner than everyone thinks.

Oh off topic but I saw “that kid” again. He is spectacular. He was wearing a ninja turtle t shirt in the best possible way and mutual eye contact occurred. I’m thoroughly enjoying all of this.

I’m interested in how psychology becomes behavior. Takes Frances. What she accomplishes at the end of the movie, out of context, is relatively minor in that she takes a desk job and she finds an apartment. But in the context of the movie, it’s kind of heroic. And, to some degree, it’s always trying to find the context for these things, these little movements we make in life. Like the end of Greenberg, where he goes and picks her up at the hospital, this sort of little thing for these characters means a lot.
