My favorite show when I was little was Grey's Anatomy. Every since then, I have wanted to be a surgeon. I Love watching shows or reading papers on stuff about the medical field. I could not be a surgeon anymore because I don't want to go to school for that long, but I will probably be an expert on surgery after all the shows I watch about it. I think things like this should be taught everywhere, especially school. This is really important and it is not that hard to do. Rather than being lost on what to do when someone around us is in emergency, they should be teaching kids stuff to do in advance. Like when someone passes out or has a siezure, I know we should call for authors immediately. But we should also be informed on what we can do to help in those situations.
Music has always been my go to thing. When Im sad, all I want to do is listen to sad music. When Im having a anxiety attack, the first thing I want to do is put on music. It just makes me feel safe. There was studies done that show it can even help ease physical pain, which is just insane. I also think it is really cool how some people get the same feeling that I do listening to music, but they get it when they are making the music or playing an instrument.
This is my favorite show ever and this conspiracy makes so much sense. But it is also relatable because we all do that. We all having missing parts ourselves that we try to find in other people, whether it is best friends or relationship partners. Sometimes, like these four best friends do, they hate on other people for the same qualities they do not like about themselves. They just don't realize that they have these same qualities.
I had just clicked on this article because I had been wondering the same thing, but it made me realize something. Almost all the articles that have a title that relates Instagram or Snapchat or Twitter, I read it. What is that saying? It means I'm obsessed with social media, a little too obsessed probably. Because of this I think I want to do a little social media detox, and just read a few books. That probably sounds sarcastic but I used to LOVE to do that on the weekends when I was younger.
This is a girl who writes a blog, and I found her on either twitter on Instagram. Her big thing is she writes however she wants to, and doesn't let anyone tell her if that is "the right way to write". She travels the world, and writes about it; that is literally my biggest dream. I also believe there is not neccesarily a "right way" to write, but maybe that is just because I enjoy going against what authorities say. I think writing is really just expressing your thoughts and however you choose to do that is YOUR right way to write.
Olivia, who wrote this, is one of my biggest role models. She believes in me more than probably anyone else, and she always wants to lead me in the right direction. I LOVE how she writes, and the specific words she uses. You can tell that she chose every single word for a specific reason. She is a big part of me becoming the writer I've become.
This article is very eye opening. Really big one that got me was 'the boys will be boys" one. We say that all the time, and most of the time its because boys are doing something inappropriate. When guys ask for nudes over snapchat, we just laugh and say "Oh, he's just being *insert name*". But that isn't fair, and they will start to use "Im just a boy doing stupid boy things" WAY to many times. Just because you are a boy doesn't mean you can ignore common decency!!
Alrighttttt so this is about people being upset because men are saying they now realize and understand rape culture because they have a daughter. They are not saying that they would condone it if they didn't have daughter!!! They are just saying that they realized the reality and fear involved with rape culture now that they have daughters who might be pulled into such. People cannot be pleased sometimes, and atleast they are coming to the realization of rape culture. Who cares If it took them having a daughter to do so?!
"Please know that things would have been different if my control of the situation was different." I did not think she looked darker in the cover than normal. Yes, she was bronzed but they do that in almost every photoshoot. I am not saying they do not have the right to be offended because I believe that you can't decide whether or not what you said hurt someone else, only they can. But I do think they should have been like "Hey this isn't right, whats up with this?" rather than bashing her all over social media. People were still bashing her even after she apologized, and her apology seemed the most sincere.
I like how conversational this article is, and how it starts out with a personal story from the author. What I discovered with drama within my friend group is that the root of the problem is not usually with each other. It usually involves a boy, or miscommunication. The writer of "Mean Girls" says that was the main point of the movie; yes, girl power and feminism is also a big point shown but she wanted to prove that when women have problems with each other, they need to talk to each other and let our the frustration because most likely It is just a misunderstanding.
I think Buzzfeed quizzes area really good way to engage a reader. You get the fun quiz before, and then once you get your results it tells you what it is trying to say but in paragraph form. I do want to research how they figure things out "about you" from you answering some completely different questions, because I do not understand it.
This week Trump has been online talking to Kanye and Chance the rapper. Kanye has been tweeting about his love for trump and it has caused a uproar. To me, I just the president needs to get off of twitter and do some more twitter things, and he shouldn't be fighting with celebrities on social media. That is unprofessional and it just worsens his appearance to the public who already hates him. I am not a fan of Trump, but I want the best for him since he is the leader of our country. I just wish he wouldn't rant so much on social media or literally make fun of people like the whole world doesn't read it.
This whole thing is like really weird and concerning. The fact that there is a robot should not be a thing in the first place much less one who think she has real feelings. Another thing is that the person whacked her account and told everyone she was a robot was also a robot made by the same person. So this is where it gets real sketchy: My guess is that he is doing this to promote himself. He is using Instagram drama between two robots (what better way to grab teenage kids attentions) so his name can get out there in the world.
I have always been curious to how working out is supposed to make my anxiety decrease and my happiness increase. But recently I have been working out and, surprisingly, I have been in better moods. I like how this is written but I cannot really explain it, it is just like some paragraphs are wider than others but it flows well. I go for a run when I am stressed, and it makes me feel better. I never understood why but I learned from the article that it is because endorphins (what our brains release when we exercise) is a stress relieving thing
Studio 54 is ICONIC. It has seen some of the best (and wildest) outfits worn by celebrities. Plus. all the celebrities have been there and partied. It has been 41 years since it opened, and it is still poppin'. I like this article because I am obsessed with high fashion and what the famous people in New York are doing, and I basically want to be Carrie Bradshaw. This type of stuff really interest me and I enjoy reading it even though there probably isn't much "English class" type of stuff in here. I also really like how the author underlines certain words and you can press them to find out more about them.
Skin care is like MY thing. I have struggled with my skin for so long and it is still not clear (but it is getting there). I've had endless dermatologist appointments, and have probably tried every single face wash on the planet. Once I get my skin to where I want it, I would LOVE to write something about how I fixed it so I can help other people going through the same thing. Plus these are some damn good tips and I haven't even heard of some of them-- and trust me, I read a lot of skin care articles. This article includes a picture for every tip that includes, which really grabs your attention. I also like the idea of the bullet point tips rather than just sticking all the tips in one big paragraph.
Milk makeup is coming out with a new mascara that involves Cannabis oil. It will probably be very controversial, but I don't mind it at all. It isn't like everyone is going to get high from putting the mascara on. Creamy mascara is important, so you gotta do whatever you gotta do to get that creamy, easy to put on mascara. Plus I have some lotion at home with Cannabis oil in it and I haven't gotten high so I think its all good.
I like how this article is written like a book chapter. It makes if feel more like a story and you can just follow along wherever the author takes you-- basically it makes it easier to read. The author talks about how even college girls in college think that sometimes it is the victims fault. That is VERY dangerous. In that case, if it happened to one of them, they would not come forward because they think it is their fault because they drank alcohol. HELLO drinking alcohol does not mean hey I just gave you consent!!! Alcohol has nothing to do with it.
This article is about someone's personal experience with rape. It is deep and very serious. I usually don't like things like that and preferrer things to be upbeat and happy. It works really well in this article because you need to understand the seriousness of the topic. I can't write an upbeat and happy paper about rape, because then you can't get all the emotions and seriousness of it. Papers like this SHOULD leave you feeling "ugh" and "blah" and with a feeling of distaste towards the people who do this AND the people who brush it off.
"Thin girls in thοngs and pasties are A-OK, but a plus girl in a full coverage suit — now that’s just too much," she wrote on Instagram. Things like this make me so sad. She went out to have a photoshoot (which the hotel said said she could and made an agreement with her), yet when she went out to have it, she was told she had to cover herself up. The worst part is this: there were MANY other women were outside strutting their stuff with not a word from security. I'm glad she turned this into a way to use her voice and speak out against it, rather than letting it get her down. Women all over the world experience this day to day, and I'm just wondering when everyone is going to learn to treat everyone equally-- and all women are beautiful, no matter what size clothes they wear.
This article includes a young girl asking a question and three writers answering it. I relate a lot to question: "Why am I so supportive of everyone else but so hard on myself". I am personally way too hard on myself, and I need to cut some slack so thats part of why I really like this one. Also, I like the whole question-answer thing. I would LOVE to do some writing like this like answering other peoples questions with my opinions and building them up (not writing for school obviously but more for life in general).
Now, I don't want to assume anything BUT I am just going to go ahead and say what I assumed: this man who shot the firearm was racist. I believe that is the point the article was trying to make, and I agree. The poor boy did not even do anything threatening, HE JUST WANTED DIRECTIONS. Ive recently got into this kind of stuff with the police shootings and such, but this article makes me heated and want to go research more. This 14 year old boy could not even ask someone for directions without being shot at, and that is insane and sad to me. I like how the writers from Vogue write a lot more than Buzzfeed. Buzzfeed is more like a newspaper or news article, while vogue is more like a magazine or a blog.
I chose this article because it made me realize the signs of rape culture in some television shows that I would have never noticed. It makes me wonder what signs that I could be looking over in my every day life. It mentions one sign that I haven't thought that much about, which is slut shaming. It made me being like "AMEN", because no matter what someone does with their body in their private time, no one has the right to assume they would want to do such things with them. "We do not need to validate a rapist's actions nor should we." A rapist rapes someone because they want to, not because of what the other person (the victim) is doing or wearing.
I chose to put this article in the collection because these women are wearing festival clothes--which many people say are too showy. The people who make up rape culture would say they were asking for it by choosing to wear revealing clothes (which Is bullshit don't think I'm condemning it).I could write MILLIONS of papers on women having the right tower whatever they feel comfortable in. Women shouldn't have to base their outfits on whether or not a man is going to sexually harass them. Anyway I like the aesthetic of the post and I wish I could go to Coachella and where those outfits.
well, vogue automatically grabs my attention because of the fashion, New York vibes it gives off. But this article actually has some pretty good information to it as well. Drake is talking about how we need to stop basing out value off of social media and likes and focus more on real people, which is something I am very passionate about. It also talks about how women should not have to feel obligated to get with certain men just because they are nice to them. "who's gotta be nice for what?" to men like him".
I like the style it is written, its like conversational- blog post. It also lists 25 reasons and I like the bullet points. It just fits into the fact that I'm really passionate about the whole rape-culture thing, and this writer tells you straight up what she is thinking. She does not sugarcoat anything, so I enjoy the rawness of it. I'm not set on writing my essay like this but I wouldn't mind it. "Journalists who substitute the word “sex” for “rape” – as if they’re the same thing."
I like how this article had a lot of quotes and stories from normal people. Like it was not anyone famous, it was just some 16 year old girl. This makes it hit close to home and relate to me, the reader. The author uses statistics to show the realism of the rape culture. This author also mentions something that most of the articles I've read on this topic hasn't: sexual harassment isn't limited to women only. "Rape isn't limited to women only, it is an emotionally and physically destructive experience that leaves the victim with this notion of having done something to have caused this".
I like how the writer puts certain things in bold or a different color to draw attention to it, and I also like how she will make the font bigger. I am drawn more to the aesthetics of a lot of the articles rather than the text itself. If it has boring colors or looks boring, I will probably have a hard time focusing on it to read it. I also like how it has an abundance of pictures and gives you links to related topics that will help you understand the article better as a whole.
This text encouraged me to further research rape culture and how often it happens. In this article, the author describes some personal experiences of her and her friends being sexually harrassed or assaulted. It makes me wonder how many people that I know could have had this happen to them, and also how I could help to stop it. Based on this text I could easily write an essay explaining the danger and blindness of rape culture. It is written in a very conversational way because it in a commentary, which I like. She is proving a point by simply telling her personal experiences.
What immediately drew me into this article was the author's use of a lot of bright colors and artsy pictures, and I like this because even though the situation is sad and upsetting Kesha stayed positive. It also was written like a newspaper article but the words she uses are very teenage girl words. She uses a lot of words like "glam" and it draws your attention as the reader. In the article she talks about how Kesha was told that all she was was "fun" by other people, like that was her determining quality; this reminded me of how many others are constantly told who they are or should be by other people. Based on this text, I could write an essay about being true to yourself and not allowing others to define you.
