Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Image(The Jameson Rating: 100% One of my all-time favourite films. Little to be said, just incredible.) As opposed to my typical style of blog posts, where I write based on something we have discussed in class, I decided to have a bit of a twist this time. There are now 9 class days remaining, and as I’m sure my teacher may have noticed, I’ve been doing my fair share of procrastinating. With so much to do, so many projects and assignments that must be handed in by the end of the week, I did what any right-minded teenage student would do. I took some time off. I never really accomplished anything in doing so; but that was exactly the goal. From laying on the couch doing nothing, to taking a bike ride around town, I never once had “school” on my mind. It was phenomenal. I asked myself some very philosophical questions with all the free time. “If I don’t do any of my work. does it matter?” “Why do people do all this school work? Will it matter years from now?” “Should I have the normal, or raspberry frozen lemonade at Tim Hoton’s?”  My little vacation reminded me of a film I have always regarded as one of the greatest, John Hughes’ “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. It is a coming-of-age classic that both entertains and captivates the audience. The movie inspires many to enjoy life now, after all, (if I can recite my absolute favourite line): “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
