Netflix Favorites!

20 Jan

Hey, guys!

So, of course, I’m hooked on Netflix. I mean, who isn’t now a days? I’m pretty sure it’s an epidemic. Now, let’s get real: the shows are awesome! I love how I can watch not only old movies but old TV shows (that are awesome), too!

Here are the shows I’m hooked on at the moment:

  • The Vampire Diaries! I can’t believe I never watched this show until a week ago! I’m already on the third season, and, let’s just say, it’s hard to tear away from this thrilling show!
  • Buffy The Vampire Slayer! This show is dramatic and oddly whimsical. Buffy, could you be anymore quirky? I’m currently on the sixth season and don’t plan on taking a break. Is that bad?
  • 30 Rock! I LOVE THIS SHOW! I love how Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) and Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) are best “bro’s” on the show. The show is hilarious by itself, but I think this part is the icing on the cake!
  • That 70’s Show! Need I say Kelso is the best? This show is so funny! I can still relate to most of what these crazy teens are doing even if it’s based in the 1970’s! Interesting! (Also, my friends say I look like Donna)
  • Kyle XY! Even though I finished watching the show, I still love it! Kyle has the most amazing powers and perplexing lifestyle that I can only dream of (and I have BTW)! The last episode was a suspenseful cliffhanger, and I actually looked up on youtube what was going to happen after. Thank goodness the cast and staff members did an interview afterwards!
  • The Secret Circle: Even though this show only had one season, there are still books telling the whole story. This show was thrilling, magical, and full of love, drama, and suspense. Perfect!
  • Doctor Who! All I can say is I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH! I think that sums it up!
  • The movies I loved were Footloose, The Breakfast Club, Grease, Charlie Bartlett, and Sassy Pants!

I hope I didn’t bore you with all the details! I love these TV shows and movies so much! Those are my absolute favorites! Come to think of it, most of them are SiFy and fantasy…cool!

Anyway, Netflix is a weakness of mine I guess. Although, it’s not a bad weakness. 😉

Happy Valentine’s Day!

13 Feb

Hey, guys!

I know I’m a little early, because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. I wanted to post this early though! Here’s the post:

There’s a good and bad side to Valentine’s Day. Some teens get dates and Valentine’s, and some, well, don’t. I’m one of the girls who don’t. That’s not a bad thing! Sure, for years I would hope to get at least one Valentine, but I didn’t, so I got seriously sad. I wish I just looked on the bright side back then like I do now. A time will come for girls just like me to get Valentines from not just anyone. It will always get better! The time differences can be way apart or close together. You never know! What I’m trying to say is that teen girls are very different, and that’s a really good thing. This time of your life doesn’t reflect on your ultimate future of dating! There’s always going to be a dry dating spot. The important thing to think about is that you will move on and better things will come if you wait. It’s a great way to stop saying, “this sucks” or something like that. Trust me, this way of thinking will get you through all the dating nonsense that happens to everyoneeven if the person you’re looking at seems to get all the guys (or girls) they want no matter what. Your time will come! 🙂

If you have a Valentine, that’s great! I hope you have tons of fun!

A bit of advice to girls who get dates: Try not to show off what you got from your special someone to everyone around you! It makes girls (and guys) who didn’t get dates or got rejected feel really bad about themselves! It’s not cool, so don’t show off. Thanks! 🙂

I want to give everyone a valentine I created! It’s electronic, so you can’t print it. I hope you love it! Here’s my Valentine for all of you:

Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine’s Day from me to everyone who sees this! I love you guys! ❤

The Problem w/ Most Models

10 Feb

Timeline_Cover_doNotRename78

Hey, guys!

Today, I’m talking about a serious issue in the world: models. I’m not saying that all models are a problem! However, a lot are. This is a main issue with society. They are so skinny and photoshopped to the point that is unrealistic for girls to maintain! This image is very unhealthy and terrible. Girls look up to icons (models and stars), but is it that a good idea? I’m answering this problem with my opinion. Here is my opinion on this matter:

I think that anywhere that has models (such as magazines and runway shows) should use “real” girls. When I say “real” I mean being a healthy weight and size which the vast majority of regular people are by far! I’m sick of companies and designers throwing all these unhealthy, eating disordered (I’m not saying all are), too thin models and icons that a lot of teen girls look up to and try to be like. It’s impossible for teens to get and maintain that type of body. That’s not the only issue, too. There’s the idea of the “perfect body” which doesn’t exist. Everyone is beautiful! The only thing all girls need to be is healthy, not some thin stick like most models these days. Models used to be real and healthy years ago. I recently looked through old photos and models came up. I was so surprised! Our society has changed the way many of us think in a very bad way. Another point is the photoshopping of their faces and bodies. No one can get that perfect skin or anything that they photoshop. I know plenty of teens who try very, very hard to get all that but never succeed. They get so disappointed and sad about it to the point of them crying. It’s a terrible thing! I’m mad about that, too. I’m not going to stand for this. We need to end all this by standing up for what we believe in (within reason of course)! I’m all for that! Let’s stop this nonsense for good! Teens have power. You just have to believe!

Here are some examples of way too thin and photoshopped models from magazines:

Youtube Dos and Don’ts

4 Feb

Timeline_Cover_doNotRename94

 

Hey, guys!

Youtube has a ton of great features and videos, but you need to be careful about what you view, because you could find something very bad (inappropriate, offensive, hateful, ect.). To make this easier to figure out, I created a Dos and Don’ts list below:

Dos:

  • Be careful what you search for
  • Try to research the Youtuber you want to watch (if for the first time)
  • Look for suspicious thumbnails (the picture on the video before you open it)
  • If the title has a number or punctuation symbol instead of a letter, something’s up
  • Click off if you are uncomfortable with what you’re watching
  • Always use common sense

Don’ts:

  • Research inappropriate or offensive words
  • Click on the video anyway even if it’s suspicious
  • Watch a video that you shouldn’t watch when you know it’s bad
  • Look at every video that pops up in the search
  • Do the wrong thing
  • Be careless

Thank you for reading! I really hope you will take my tips into consideration! It will help you a lot with navigating Youtube safely. Sometimes Youtube can be a bad place, but it’s mostly good. You just have to look out for signs. If you do that, you won’t have to worry about getting in a whole lot of trouble (not just your parents)!

See you in my next post!

Trolling…

19 Jan

Timeline_Cover_doNotRename79

Hey guys!

This post’s topic is trolling-a sensitive topic among teens on the internet. What is trolling? Well, according to Urban Dictionary, “The art of deliberately, cleverly, and secretly pissing people off, usually via the internet, using dialogue.” That was written by a real person. What I mean by a real person is not somebody who is paid to write definitions, kind of like me!

I’m not into trolling and being a troll. I think it causes bullying to happen more. I will get into that in a future post. Trolling is mainly on Youtube and Facebook, at least that’s what I’ve seen. It’s to be taken very seriously!

Well, I’ve told you my opinion. N0w In want to read your’s! No “trolling,” please! Ok, see you guys later!
