Depiction of future earth sucks

Posted on Updated on

I know I can’t be the only one that has noticed how future earth is depicted pretty consistently in movies or tv (or books for that matter). Gloom, doom, cold, dark, cold hearted. It definitely doesn’t look like a place I would want to live in. I feel for future generations. During this holiday season I decided to bingewatch #the100 and the first thing I thought was how I could and would not want to live in that ark. Seriously what a dark environment.. and being floated, how terrible? Then I one upped that by going to watch the latest installment of the #hungergames. I don’t think I am understanding the meaning of christmas ! Anyway oddly enough while watching #the100 I couldn’t help but think about the finality of death. Admittedly I got anxiety attacks to the point where my wife told me to stop watching the show. I just can’t fathom not being around for my family. I’m not sure if this can be classified as a mid life crisis. I don’t know. All I know is that new years day a friend and colleague passed away at a young age of 47; so young. I can’t help but think about my anxieties and whether somehow they were some premonition to this. #RIPSteven
