On Saturday, I was able to watch the much anticipated Divergent in theaters starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James. It’s funny because the timing was impeccable for me. I recently started reading the dystopian novel “1984” and I found striking resemblances between the two works of art. *Warning, may contain spoilers*

As we say goodbye to high school and welcome the rest of our lives, it seems that there are so many possibilities available. Hundreds of great colleges offer a wide range of education from the humanities to the sciences. There is something for everyone. However, finding what you’re passionate about isn’t easy. I’ve been indecisive lately and not really sure of what I want to be. I’d like to find my passion just as the lawyers at Pearson Specter have found theirs.

Earlier in the year, both Austin and I posted on this Netflix original series. I admit that it has been a long wait for season 2 to be released and we have been anticipating it. It was well worth it. I’ve been able to get a couple episodes of the new season under my belt and I’m loving it thus far.

As I finish reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, I realized that the book takes a unique format. There are many times in the novel where characters are looking back on their lives and telling stories about what happened. There are also many letters being written that explains what is happening at the moment. This puts the audience on a more personal level with the characters like Walton or Victor Frankenstein himself. We are able to empathize with Frankenstein when things go wrong or with Walton when he faces trouble too. Furthermore, the monster even talks about his life to Frankenstein for several chapters.
