You Don't Have To Be Blindfolded To Not See The Hype Surrounding 'Bird Box'

'Bird Box' wasn't that great of a movie and I don't get why so many people liked it.

You Don't Have To Be Blindfolded To Not See The Hype Surrounding 'Bird Box'

The movie 'Bird Box' is about how five years after an ominous unseen presence drives most of society to suicide, as a mother and her two children make a desperate bid to reach safety.

I recently watched the movie 'Bird Box' and I didn't really enjoy it. The concept was basically the same as movies such as 'Don't Breathe', 'Hush', and 'The Quiet Place'. In those ways, I didn't really like it because the concept of it has already been used. To explain, in the movies I've listed and 'Bird Box' the story goes how an entity wreaks havoc and a group of persons/family try to get away from it and survive while doing so. The characters basically can only use one of the five senses to survive. Like in the movie 'Hush', the main character is blind, so she can't use her sense of sight, but has to rely on her sense of hearing to escape the killer.

I personally didn't find the plot to be that interesting, though I can agree that one or two scenes I liked. I think the rate at which the characters were killed off was pretty fast, but I can't really complain about something that was written in the book that had to be done. I mainly just didn't like the fact that I've seen what seems like the same concept in other movies.

There definitely are many people who thought this movie was great, but I just don't think so.

The fact also that I saw a news report already that a 'Bird Box' related death occurred. I can't fathom why people would think that it's smart to put a blindfold on and do anything without getting hurt.

If people start getting ridiculous ideas from 'Bird Box' and put blindfolds on and drive or any other stupid ideas then there is going to be an issue in the media and more news reports will start washing in.

In my opinion, just save yourselves the trouble of watching this film and watch something that was pretty good like 'Mary Poppins Returns' or really anything else.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
