Master Chef Junior and Boyhood Tops on My Recent Favorite Views

There's a whole lot of drama going on in this big world of ours and sometimes you just have to take a step back and watch a little tv. Well, for the 2nd season in a row, I am watching Master Chef Junior and enjoying it. This show makes me even more supportive of the new unschooling trend, as clearly these children have been offered exposure to something they love to do and are starting at a very early age preparing presumably for their professional futures. The show demonstrates that everybody is a winner, just for showing up and believing they're good enough to succeed.

Something else I watched recently (rented from Redbox, watched on tv) is the movie Boyhood. Yes, it deserved every award it received recently at the Golden Globes simply because; its simplistic storyline allowed viewers to ponder the ups and downs of their own childhood experiences and know when it's all said and done, we are byproducts of our upbringing whether we want to admit, or identify with it or not.

Well, that's it for now. It's been a minute; but life continues. Praise God for that!
