Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
Neon Genesis Evangelion
I watched this classic mech anime after hearing quite a few good things about it. While it had its moments, this anime got pretty weird near the end. The last two episodes were basically nonsensical looks inside the main character’s mind. Plus, a lot of the story’s plot was based on stuff never explained in the anime, making it more confusing than it had to be. Still, I loved the characters and battles. If you’re into mech anime, it’s probably worth a watch.
