Demi Lovato's "Simply Complicated" Documentary Review
Thursday's Journal

Not only do I love Demi Lovato for being a talented actress and singer, but also as a person who is not afraid to be open about her past struggles. Demi Lovato is transparent and vulnerable with her audience when it comes to her documentary "Simply Complicated." In this film, Demi talks about her struggles with mental illness and substance abuse at a young age and the emotions she was feeling that were abnormal to other people.

In the documentary, Demi made the statement, "one day I just came to a breaking point." She realized that she needed to make a change in her life to get back to having good mental health. Demi decided that going to professionals such as psychologists and counselors for help would be the best thing to do in order to recover. She even started working out more to reduce the stress and anxiety that she was feeling in her life.

Through therapy and exercise, Demi was able to to clean herself from abuse and get herself back on track to happiness and success. After getting the help she needed from professionals and support from family and friends, Demi came to a successful recovery and was stronger than she ever was before.

Overall, Demi Lovato's "Simply Complicated" documentary sends her audience the message that anyone can struggle with mental illness and that it is okay. Being mentally ill is hard, but it is nothing to be ashamed of. A lot of people go through the struggle of some form of mental disorder. Mental illness is a hard battle, but with the help of professionals such as psychologists and counselors and from family and friends who love you, you are able to get through it. However, the main person you need help from in order to recover is yourself. You have to want to get through the struggle of mental illness because it is something that you want to do, not just because others want you to. Throughout this documentary you can see Demi transform from being someone who struggled on a continuous journey of being unhappy while using drugs to being happier than ever before and clean of all things harmful. Demi Lovato is living proof that you can change your life and get on the road to recovery. It does not matter how long the journey takes as long as you eventually get there.

I highly recommend watching Demi Lovato's documentary "Simply Complicated." Whether you like Demi as an actress, singer or are interested in topics such as mental illness, psychology and/or counseling, I truly believe you will enjoy this documentary as much as I did.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
