The Man in the Moon

Boy, this is a real tear-jerker. I didn’t know that when I started though; it just came on TV when nothing else worth seeing was on. It seemed like it was a sweet teenage love story.

And I kept thinking, “I’ve seen that girl before…Where have I seen that girl before? Turns out it was Reese Witherspoon in ’91, playing a 14 year old. She was pretty young, and I thought she was pretty good in the role.

TOTAL chick flick, but I enjoyed it. The pace was very slow and nostalgic of small town farm life. If you need a cry, this is a good one.

Reasons why I don’t like our school system

“As long as learning is connected with earning, as long as certain jobs can only be reached through exams, so long must we take the examination system seriously. If another ladder to employment was contrived, much so-called education would disappear, and no one be a penny the stupider.”
-E.M. Forster _Aspects of the Novel_
