We All Have A Little Tom Ripley In Us - by Richard
We all remember the super preppy movie/book The Talented Mr. Ripley, right?Every time I watch this movie, it reminds me that we all have a little Tom Ripley in us. I mean come on, we all would have whacked Freddie if for nothing else than his limp wristed mannerisms. Plus, you know Dickie had that oar to the face coming to him! Seriously, all jokes aside, I think we all desire to be something we are not! Whether it be Princeton, or one's desire to be a billionaire, we all desire to be someone else from time to time. Many accuse me of pretending on this blog, but this is truly who I am. Sure, I wish I had attended an Ivy. And, I wish I had ten times more money than I have, but don't we all! If nothing else, the opening line of the movie The Talented Mr. Ripley should help us with self reflection. Be who you are, but don't be afraid to dream! Well, that wasn't exactly what Tom said, but that is what he meant!
