Anvar: The One No One Understood

It's all about the accent and the sarcasm

Anvar: The One No One Understood

Meet Anvar:

It's not entirely true that no one understood what this Scottish man was saying, it just took us a while to get used to the accent and the humor and the sarcasm. Even to the end, I needed about five seconds to really process what he was saying, but once I did it was all laughter. This competitive Settlers of Catan player took trading very seriously, and always did his best to make sure Célia never won, though many times she did. He'd always play terrible music at an atrociously high volume, and eat an ungodly amount of oatmeal when he wasn't eating eggs on toast or chili. Yeah, those were his menu options every day.

I'm just picking on him because I love him so much. Underneath the dry, dark comments was just a lad waiting to be hugged.

One of my favorite moments with Anvar was when Max started imitating the way Brandon said his name from across the courtyard. Brandon had a nasal way of yelling "ANVAAAAAAAR" from across the courtyard. No one noticed how nasally it sounded until one day Max started yelling "ANVAAAAAAR" every time Brandon would call him. Eventually, the joke stuck and ANY TIME any one would call Anvar all you could hear was a nasal chorus of voices screaming "ANVAAAAAAR"!! Anyone from Holger that's reading this is doing so in the exact voice we all grew to love.

My second favorite moment was on Anvar's last day. He was hugging everyone goodbye, he went up to Ariane and hugged her and said, "You've got a great voice." Then he came up to me and said, "I have nothing to say." We laughed a little, I had tears building up of course, and we hugged. A few days before he had told me that he actually thought I was funny. In fact, he said, "Ana, you're actually one of the funniest people I've met here." Yeah, a few tears were dropped, mostly and only by me, but I was so honored to have Anvar think that I'm funny. I mean I think I'm funny, but ANVAAAAAR thinks I'm funny! Ugh, best day ever.

I miss so much about Anvar. From the way he blushed when I asked him if he'd been working out (cause #gains) and the way he would call me Latina with a Hispanic accent. I love you so much Anvy!

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
