If You're A Rocky Balboa Fan, 'Creed II' Is A Must-See

I promise you won't be disappointed.

When I heard that "Creed II" was finally in theaters, it felt like Christmas came early. That statement was so dramatic but I had to say it. "Creed II" is my favorite movie out of the entire series after my true favorite, "Rocky IV."

Warning, spoilers for "Rocky IV" below

I love "Rocky IV" because it was a major turning point in the series. When they began the movie with an important character's death, it created a solemn feeling that I hoped would not last the rest of the movie. But, it all changed when Rocky trained harder than ever to rise up and beat Ivan Drago. This movie is a classic and I would recommend watching before "Creed II."

"Creed II" is a follow up to "Rocky IV." Many years later, Drago has now trained his son to be an absolute M.A.C.H.I.N.E. so that he can beat Rocky's prodigy. The entire movie, Adonis works through mental and physical pain to find the strength in himself to fight Drago's son. Altogether the story shows a fighter and proves to everyone that with hard work and dedication you can achieve your goals.

The "Creed" movies are really good at inspiring people. After I watched the first movie, I left the theater with my adrenaline pumping. It makes me motivated to go and get after certain goals I have been putting off. With his motivation and dedication to do what he loves, he shows others how to be a respectable man. Whether it is losing weight, gaining muscle, cutting or bulking to get the body that you want, you can do it!

I think it's the combination of stories every character gives that makes the story so raw and real. While the music playing in the background helps to keep emotions high throughout the entire movie. I think every person that leaves the theaters after viewing Creed will be given that extra little nudge towards fighting for what they believe in.

I know that in the age of Netflix and OnDemand, it's easy to just illegally download it in your free time, but there are some perks to going to the movies. In my opinion, there is no snack better than movie theater popcorn, when you could put as much butter on it as you want. I also recognize that I am not the first person to say that the prices are ridiculous, but that doesn't stop me from going at least once every few months.

My last reason to go see this movie is pretty superficial, however, I'm going to go ahead and say it anyway. Michael B. Jordan is the lead in this movie, and he is also going to be shirtless. Take that for what its worth.

All in all, "Creed II" was a great movie and I personally give it five stars. So please for the love of every movie worth watching, go out and see "Creed" ASAP.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
