For those of us that are students, the new semester is fast approaching (although some have already started).

I wasn’t always this hyped about…Continue

Women in Movies
I love watching movies! Practically anyone can say this. There’s a movie genre for everyone out there, although some are more popular than others. Regardless, I’m sure most of us can say we’ve sat down and enjoyed plenty of movies in our lives...but do we ever stop to think about what message the movie is sending to the audience apart from the overall themes of the movie…Continue

I hope everyone had (or will have) a great first week of school.
I'm supposed to be a senior this year, but I'm so far behind I don't know what to consider myself. It's really difficult as a homeschooler to know if you are leveled with your peers. I honestly wish I was attending a real school. I regret not having the traditional high school experience, you know - homecoming, prom, graduation, etc.
I succeeded academically from K - 7th…Continue

If you spend a lot of time on your computer, make sure you take frequent breaks. Take it from me.
I was recently diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is a condition where the median nerve is irritated and inflamed. This can cause pain, tingling, burning and twitching sensations on the hands and arms. The way that I got it was by my 'long breaks' after shortly working on school stuff, which were technically many hours long. I also had my wrists bent in an awkward…Continue

So who else is ready to go back to school in August? I have taken the semester off and I have to say I have missed the late night study sessions and the cramming in homework the night before its due.

Since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president in mid-June, his remarks about Latinos and others have only become worse. As a reminder, in his first speech he made remarks such as:
“When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you. They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs, they are brining crime, they’re rapists, and some I…Continue

No matter what we are doing, where we are, or the time of day, we are surrounded by the media’s messages. You could be checking out groceries at the local supermarket when you see the blonde, blue eyed woman on the cover of a magazine or in the car when you hear about the latest weight loss product. The tools that the media utilizes to send out its message about beauty standards can vary from social media to advertisements on a billboard. What you see and hear around you has been…Continue

I don't think it's right to change models by photoshopping them or adding so much makeup. The reason behind this is because young girls will stress trying to look like that although they do not know that it's false. This is not fair to people reading and looking at the magazine because they may feel self conscious about the way they look. This is also disappointing for the model…
