8 Reasons To Go See The Greatest Showman

Recently I had the opportunity to see the Golden Globe nominated movie, The Greatest Showman. And WOW. Did that movie exceed all my expectations. If you haven't seen it yet, here are a few reasons why you should DEFINITELY GO.

1. The history of Barnum and Bailey's circus

If you haven't been to the circus, i highly question your childhood. However, if you have, the movie depicts the history and how it became to be one of the most successful traveling shows to ever exist.

2. Zac Efron

Ladies, that's enough reason in itself to go. He is as usual is stellar in his role as Phillip Carlyle.

3. This is Me

This song is probably my new anthem. "I'm not afraid to be seen, I make no apologies. I make no apologies". It's an empowering song for all those who don't fit into what society thinks that they have to be. It's a confident booster as well. Trust me you'll be jamming out to this one.

4. The Soundtrack

Besides, This is Me, the soundtrack is absolute fire. I downloaded it as soon as I got home. You'll be rocking out to it in the car, in the shower, in front of the mirror, etc. in no time.

5. It's a movie for the whole family.

While there are a few more mature parts, anyone can learn a lesson from it. And even if musicals aren't your thing, the music just makes the movie better and I think you'll still enjoy it.

6. It encourages people that they can be anything they want to be.

P.T. Barnum, started as a tailor boy and created an empire. It goes to show that you could come from nothing and become something with hard work and determination.

7. The Zac Efron and Zendaya Story line

It's sad that people of opposite colors still have problems dating because people look down on it. This problems dates all the way back to the beginning of Barnum and Bailey and not much has changed. This story line will rip your heart and will put it back together when they finally share a kiss.

8. It's a great feel good movie.

You'll leave the movie in high spirits and wanting to take on the world. With all the brokeness in the world today, this movie is one I highly recommend seeing.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
