“But do you know this idea of the imaginary homeland? Once you set out from shore on your little boat, once you embark, you’ll never truly be at home again. What you’ve left behind exists only in your memory, and your ideal place becomes some strange imaginary concoction of all you’ve left behind at every stop.” ― Claire Messud, The Woman Upstairs

The Up Series: Jaki Edition


I finally have sat down and watched the Up Series in it’s entirety. I’m now British and want one hundred more of these kinds of documentaries. It has invariably made me think of my life at these stages and I think this is what you would have seen.

7 - An overly excited child who believed the whole world was hers to conquer. Lovely hippie parents. When asked, Jaki said one day she would have a large family but still be famous and on her own.

14 - A shy, awkward child who hated every moment of being interviewed. Parents divorced. Largely in charge of her brother. Any questions of the future stopped all production.

21 - A complete wild child with no cares, ignorant of her family and living for her friends. When asked about her future she would be a writer and traveling around the world.

28 - Out on her own late in life and feeling the weight of it. Writing for a local magazine and trying to fit in as a normal adult. Shied away from questions about the future as she did not yet know it was acceptable to not want to be married with a family.

35 - Stable, working in Public Relations and Government affairs for the Chamber of Commerce.Surrounded by an amazing writing group and gaining confidence. Still not wanting children but warming to marriage.

To apologize I’ll give you the following story.

Once as a grown up in college I aced a test, as many grown ups in college will do, and was having THE moment, the one where I felt like I had a marching band following me around playing Mariah Carey “Fantasy” and then as I walked past my alma matter across the street a school bus passes and a real life kid threw a biscuit at my head.

So, if you go to IMDB and look up John Carroll Lynch who plays Twisty, the first thing you’ll see is that profile picture of him where he seems super gregarious and not killer-y. Then look at his movies and such and you’ll see that even though he was Steve Carey on Drew Carey and dated Mimi he was also the original Lieutenant Commander Jack Reese on West Wing who was then later played by Christian Slater. Mainly though, he’s Norm in Fargo and that guy couldn’t hurt a fly AND when Diane came on Frasier because she wrote a play it was John Carroll Lynch her played her version of Frasier which means he is super cool and Diane is smart and she thought pretty highly of him so he is not really gonna kill you as you sleep. Then you will see that his real life wife is named Brenda Wehle and she has played a TON of judges on TV and no one who plays a bunch of judges on TV would marry a killer clown. I think she was also the sister on Jack and Bobby and one of Charlie’s cancer doctors on Party of Five so she would never really let her husband be a crazy killer so it’s all really pretend and you can watch and not get scared.

*I am guessing at some of who these characters are.

"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”

From Adora Svitak’s talkWhat adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.

This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.
