10 Things I Can't Wait To See In 2017

10 Things I Can't Wait To See In 2017

New things to look forward too in the new year.

There's going to be new music from your favorite artists and more. New movies with new and old actors. TV shows are going to be ending this year and new shows are going to be airing. Childhood memories are going to be resurfaced this year. Here are a few things that I'm looking forward to seeing in 2017.

1. "Series of Unfortunate Events"

When Netflix announced that they were going to do a television show for this I was so happy. When the movie came out in 2004 it was my favorite movie but I was really mad that they didn't do the whole series. I can't wait to see Netflix's adaptation because this is a really good book series.

2. Thank God It's Thursday's (TGIT) are back

New episodes of "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal," and "How to Get Away with Murder" in that order, enough explained.

3. Big Sean's new album

Big Sean is one of my favorite rappers and he has already been revealing a little about his upcoming album. His new album will be called "I Decided" and he has said that it's going to be different than all his usual stuff and that this album has a concept. Big Sean says that the concept of this album is about a man that gets a second chance at life which is also revealed in his single "Bounce Back."

4. New movies

New movies are always the best part of a new year. Some of the new movies coming this year are "Fifty Shades Darker" "Beauty and the Beast," "Wonder Woman," and "Baywatch."

5. "That's so Raven" spin-off

In October Raven Symoné announced that she is leaving "The View" so she could work on a "That's So Raven" spin-off show. So far it doesn't have a set name but it is supposed to be a single mother; Raven and her two kids and one of her kids are supposed to have her physic abilities.

6. "Stranger Things" season two

The first season of "Stranger Things" was one of the best things to happen in 2016. Season one left a little skepticism to what is going to be in season 2 and I can't wait to see what's going to happen in season two.

7. "Descendants 2"

When I saw the first Descendants I didn't think it was going to be good at all. I thought Disney was trying to make another movie that was as popular as "High School Musical" and "Camp Rock." But Descendants is actually really good and it has a good meaning, I can't wait to see how their adventure continues.

8. New music from Avril Lavigne

After putting her music career on hold for the past two years while battling Lyme Disease, Avril Lavigne is finally coming back. On Christmas Day she posted a picture on Instagram with a caption thanking her fans for their patience and she also announced that she will be releasing a new album in 2017. She also mentions that she is working on new music now so I hope the album comes soon.

9. "Game of Thrones" season seven

"Game of Thrones" is one of the best television shows that is on right now and they only have two more seasons left. I can't wait to see what happens in season seven because they left season six with a cliffhanger like they do every season finale but I hate cliffhangers, I like to have my questions answered as soon as possible.

10. Last season of "Pretty Little Liars"

Even though it's going to be a sad day when they air their last episode, it's time for an end. Pretty Little Liars will always be missed.

I can't wait for the release date for any of these ten things, I hope they're as good as I want them to be.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

Poetry On Odyssey: The Room

It is difficult to let go of childhood traumas, but if you don't, you will never be able to move on to a healthy life.


Can you hear it?

The Sound of Silence.

I can. There I am.

Back in the little, old cube.

It's bland;

Only a single light bulb decorates the Room.


It takes me back to When.

I close my eyes.

There it is again.

The Silence.

It echoes.

It aches.

I open my eyes to a small child.

He hunches his body in a corner.

With his little shuttering voice, he speaks,

They're coming.\n\nThey're coming.

Who's coming?

I ask.

The Monsters,The Monsters,"

He replies.

Over and over he repeats:

They're coming.

They're coming.

The Monsters are coming.

Each time, his whisper grows louder.

Each time, his voice grows firmer.

Then, he stops.

I slowly approach the corner where the child sits.

His figure is so small and meek.

He is probably no more than five.

I grab his shoulder.

I turn his face my way.

What I discover is…


His eye sockets are shallow.

They are deprived of a soul.


They cry blood.

His face is sickly pale.

His dry lips part.

Then he speaks:

They're here.
