Their dreams will no doubt be filled with obstacle courses and tie-dye, hikes and ropes courses. Another day at summer camp is done.

If you have ever experienced knowing someone as a child and then meeting them again years later as a full-grown adult person, then you know that experience makes for a very weird time-traveling head-trip. One that slaps you in the face and reminds you that the clock is ticking and that you, in fact, are getting very old. The ambitious new film, Boyhood, elicits those same strange transcendent sensations as it uses the same actors over an actual twelve year period and tells the story of a child and his parents growing up.

Freedom is a value we seek. We hold it as a right in the United States. We want it in our personal lives, even our professional lives. We hope to have it in our retirements and to pass it on to our children. Because we live fast-paced lives with rampant technological change, freedom often means we seek convenience. When things are convenient they seem to more readily fit our schedules. When something is convenient, it seems to help us gain some freedom of time or effort. Drive-thru fast food restaurants, cell phone providers, and other businesses seek ways to serve us in the most convenient fashion. We desire freedom and, therefore, want convenience because it promises us better results to live in this fast-paced society. Convenience buys us time and gives us freedom.
