Beat

Beat references a whole movement that took plae in the United States. It represents the Beat Generation, a group of brilliant minds defying the expected. I love what the movement stands for. Jack Kerovac, a prominent face for the Beat Generation, wrote my favorite book depicting their thrills. I admire the Beats because they sought to live a life that they wanted. They wished to escape the conformities of society and discover the extent of individualism. I believe one should lead a life free of expectation, one crafted from the dreams of the individual.
