Why Music Is Universal

Recently I've started listening to kpop, and for my new friends this is strange and somewhat laughable, but for my friends who have known me longer it's nothing out of the ordinary. I've been listening to music in other languages since I discovered German and Russian music in middle school (Tokio Hotel and t.A.T.u. to … Continue reading Why Music Is Universal

Finding Motivation from the VMAs

A lot of the older generations claim that we millennials don't yet understand how the world works, and I'm not going to pretend as if we have it all figured out, but they don't understand how our world works, either. Last night were the MTV VMAs. Yeah, it's a bit of a shitshow in the … Continue reading Finding Motivation from the VMAs

9 Things I Learned At Vidcon

This last weekend I had the pleasure of attending vidcon for the first time, and it was AMAZING.

A Response for Representation

I think at this point apologizing for not blogging consistently is getting consistently boring, so instead I'll just jump right into today's topic: female representation.

Just a warning, I haven't planned out exactly what I'm going to say or how … Continue reading A Response for Representation

Bachelorette’s Bad Rep

Bachelorette is not The Hangover. It has many similar basic elements, sure, in that it takes place in the night before the wedding and focuses on how much the main bridesmaids can royally screw up the approaching big day for the bride. It's also comedic. That's about it though.
