Batman v/s Superman. Captain America: A Civil War? REALLY? These are all supposed to be the good guys people! IF comic book characters were not so heavily marketed towards young children, I’d say, “Go for it”, “What evs…it’s just a movie.” In real life, the lines between the good and the bad are often blurry. Just look at our nation’s 2016 political primaries. It is dark gray; the world media and the campaigns themselves have been dead set on polarizing these candidates hoping to lead our great country. We want a Superhero to guide our people and defeat the enemies of the world. As adults, we know that Superhero is just a relative term, BUT kids…Kids believe in Superheroes!
I LOVE the Oscars! I love the Oscars even more than I hate post-holiday winter. Every year, I find January to be on the brutal side…like one month-long holiday hangover. I feel lost and sad after the beautiful and exhausting chaos of the previous year explodes with the New Year’s skies. I try to be inspired by grocery store magazine resolutions and fitness makeovers plastered throughout social media. But each year brings mixed results and I often still feel kinda lonely…until I hit my Oscar groove, my reason for this dreary season.
