It's 2019 And I Still Can't Answer These 12 Questions

It's 2019 And I Still Can't Answer These 12 Questions

It's 2019, but I still don't understand what happened to Vine?


High key, I've always thought about these things in the back of my mind. Why are there so many questions and conspiracy theories...and which ones are true and which are a flat out lie? Why is it so hard to tell a lie from the truth?

1. Why do we pretend Açai bowls fill us up?

YOU ARE A BIG FAT LIAR IF... you eat açai bowls like they are a full meal, AND you pretend that it's filling! I love açai bowls, but I know for a fact, they are not filling. Obviously, I want to be skinny so I eat one after yoga and basically am hungry until dinner. But why do we pretend like it's a whole meal? WHY?

2. Was Mariah Carey really talking about Eminem in her "Obsessed" music video?

We've all seen the video, we all know the beef that took place in the late 2000s... but was she talking sh*t about Eminem? Was he really obsessed with her? Did they hook up?

3. Why did Marylin Monroe and JFK die a year apart?

I have a theory...I have a gut feeling that Jackie K, was sick and tired of JFK's cheating ass and decided to kill both Marilyn M and her husband. Marylin was easier because suicide is easier to frame. No offense, but Marilyn had gone through a lot for her to give up that quickly, I mean The Heathers is a prime example. Why else would Oswald be killed?

4. Why do we see that dress in different colors?

I was at Shenica's house after track practice, when she asked me, "what color do you see?" Blue and black. She saw white and gold, and we both freaked out. We stared at it at the same time, and then looked at each other. What the FFFFFFFFF?! We've come up with theories of why we see different colors, but the bottom line is that we don't know how color vision works.

5. Is the illuminati real?

What is the Illuminati? Is it a secret society? It's basically people claiming they are special, which to be fair is kind of true. I do believe there are certain people that are more special than others and probably posses some sort of mental capability over others, like Ted Bundy.

6. Why is Kim K super wealthy off her promiscuity?

Okay, we get it, her father was O.J. Simpson's representative...but how exactly did she get so famous? At this point, I think most of us have seen her video...and if you haven't then what have you been doing? So she became super famous off this video, that kept popping up even though when she would delete it. But like how did she blow up? Was it her fake butt? The T.V. show? I mean good for her, because not everyone that makes a porno becomes wealthy!

7. Why was Vine shutdown?

Word on the street says, that common people were becoming way too famous way too quickly, so they shut it down! Is this true... because if it is that is literally the 1% feeling attacked and defending their territory so no one else becomes part of the 1%.

8. Why are Disney Chanel TV series not on Netflix?

I want to be able to drink some wine while watching my favorite childhood shows. Now that I am wiser, I realize the amount of innuendos from my childhood shows. Have you rewatched Shrek? Seriously Netflix, step it up! You should probably have these:

"Lizzie McGuire"

"Phil of the Future"

"Suite Life of Zach and Cody"

"That's so Raven"

"Hannah Montana"

"Sonny with a Chance"

9. How did people get around before Uber or Lyft?

I think about this all the time! I understand that cabs were the way people used to get around, but what about when you accidentally bought too many groceries and order an uber, what did people do back then? What about a rainy day, did people get wet and take the train? What if you felt too tired to take public transportation? PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME!

10. Are GMOs even bad for us?

Not to be one of those people but... I took a Bio class last quarter and supporting evidence were in favor of GMOs. Specially for poor countries, which would benefit greatly from GMOs. Why would we not want to help farmer's in Africa feed their population? We all know that there are a lot of people suffereing from malnutrition, so why would we not allow them to better themselves? Are we advertising GMOs as bad to keep the poor, poor?

11. Are Juuls actually going to disappear?

SERIOUS QUESTION?! Not to be a fien, but juuling during midterms and finals help my anxiety.

12. Why is Instagram becoming a business market?

You can now advertise yourself.. LOL. You can actually buy your followers now. What's the whole point of Insta now, if you can no longer get the thrill of meeting randoms and taking pictures, if you are too worried about how many likes you will get.

20 Fun Facts To Use When Introducing Yourself

As we embark on the semester, we are put on the spot in order to share interesting details about ourselves. This article discloses possible fun facts to tell others!

After experiencing my first week of classes, I have learned that every student needs a handy-dandy list of fun facts about themselves to tell other people. Many professors use the first couple of classes to learn about their students, so you may need to think about who you are and how you want to introduce yourself to your professor and classmates. We all have that one go-to interesting fact about ourselves, but sometimes you just have to mix it up!

1. My favorite hobby is...

What do you do in your free time? Personally, I love to stay active! I am a competitive Latin dancer and enjoy teaching and taking Zumba classes, going to the gym, and hiking.

2. I love...

Is there something, someone, or somewhere that you love? What makes your heart ache? What do you miss when it's gone? I can say that I love my friends because I feel my most confident when I'm surrounded by those who love and support me.

3. I look up to...

Is there someone you adore? Who mesmerizes you? Who do you wish to learn from? After watching "A Ballerina's Tale," I discovered Misty Copeland. In 2015 she became the first African American ballet dancer to become the Female Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre. Her passion, grace, and strength continuously motivate me to better myself as an athlete and an individual.

4. This art speaks to me because...

Coco Chanel said, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." This encourages me to always follow my heart no matter what. I will never follow society's standards and norms because they do not define me. Chanel's saying definitely influences my character and lifestyle.

5. A funny and/or embarrassing memory of me is...

When you make others laugh they want to spend time and make memories with you! Don't be afraid to embarrass yourself. You will come off as down to earth, easy-going, and loyal.

6. My siblings or lack thereof influenced me by...

I can go on and on about my brother, who is 10 years older than I. We have opposite personalities and despite the age gap, we're quite close.

7. My pet(s) are my life because...

Only sad people don't like hearing about furry creatures, even if your pets are slimy and slithering creatures all human beings enjoy hearing pet tales!

8. I'm afraid of...

Your personality can be revealed by your likes and dislikes, including the things that you fear. I am terrified of change and the unknown, hence, the future is an anxiety-inducing topic to discuss for me.

9. I am the way I am because...

What have you gone through in life that has shaped you into who you are today? Remember to be open minded and allow yourself to open up to your peers. You may be surprised by how others respond and/or what others have endured as well.

10. The most unusual item that can be found in your dorm...

This is a fun fact about yourself that can easily liven up an awkward conversation. Think about your quirks and differences! One item I have in my dorm is my teddy bear, Peter, whom I like to joke is my boyfriend.

11. My dream job is...

In college, "What's your major?" is a widespread question. Nonetheless, skip the boring statement of "I'm majoring in..." and go in depth on what your dream job is (hopefully your major factors in to this dream of yours).

12. My hidden talents are...

Angelina Jolie is a knife thrower. Kendall Jenner can produce bird noises. Amanda Seyfried can crochet and knit. Is there anything special you can do? Some people have rare and unique talents, maybe you can think of some hidden talents of your own!

13. My guilty pleasure is...

I will say it a million times: don't be shy when introducing yourself to new people! I'll start by divulging my guilty pleasure: Youtube's family vlogging channel, "OKBaby"!

Check them out:

14. Some activities on my bucket list are...

This is an easy way to grab people's attention and find others with similar desires as you. Be an adventurer! Go out of your comfort zone!

15. Talk about your best friend...

How would your best friend describe you? What do you love to do with your best friend?

16. Talk about an accomplishment of yours...

You are incredible and have achieved so much! Reveal something that you are proud of — show off a little!

17. This one time at my job...

Bosses breathing down your neck. Curious coworkers asking personal questions. Cursing customers who never leave you alone. Your job can be filled with tons of hilarious situations that can easily entertain a crowd.

18. During the summer...

Any scars with stories? Any summer flings? Any lessons learned from the tanning too long? Now that summer is over, disclose memories that can leave positive impressions on others.

19. I volunteer at...

Do you do any community service? Share a funny moment while you were volunteering. What did you learn while there? Would you continue?

20. [blank] is meaningful to me because...

What do you appreciate in life? What brightens your day? What makes you fall in love? What does someone have to do to make you smile?

Finally, remember to be outgoing! Reveal that three-mile smile and open your arms to learning about others. Spread smiles, love, and happiness.

5 Things To Look Forward To Even In The Middle Of End Of The Year Stress

There's always something to look forward to.


School is so close to the end. Seniors will be graduating really soon and juniors are now either nervous or excited about senior year. 8th graders are scared about entering into the most important 4 years of their lives so far. And of course, a yearly stress every high schooler will go through are AP exams. But, even with all these things in mind, here are 5 things to look forward to even in the middle of everything else.

1. Weather

Summer comes with so many amazing things. But, one of my all time favorites is weather. The weather is perfect for a nice picnic or a pool party. The sun shining always puts people in a good mood.

2. Sleep

Summer is the time to catch up on all the sleep you've missed this past year due to studying or doing homework. Now, you can freely sleep in and stay up as long as you want while getting the full 8 hours or more.

3. Vacations/ Stay-cations

This is the time to go explore and travel the world and experience new things. Seeing new cultures around the world and trying new foods is a great part of going on vacation. If not going on vacation, staying at home and relaxing is always a great way to rest your body and brain from everything.

4. Hanging out

This is the time to go explore and travel the world and experience new things. Seeing new cultures around the world and trying new foods is a great part of going on vacation. If not going on vacation, staying at home and relaxing is always a great way to rest your body and brain from everything.

5. Movie nights

Even though you have the option to sleep, obviously a movie marathon would be highly considered because sleeping in is always the right choice during the summer.
