Everyone Deserves To Be Heard And Everyone Matters

Turn up the music and determinate by making the world your dance floor because you deserve to be somebody.

Everyone Deserves To Be Heard And Everyone Matters

You know those sappy movies on Disney Channel that have come out on the new Disney Channel (in my opinion Disney channel is going downhill from what it used to be and when it was actually good) in the last couple of years? "Zapped," "Descendants," "Radio Rebel" and many more.

Out of all these, there is one that grabbed my heart, I fell in love with and had something I could take a lesson from and appreciate it, " Lemonade Mouth." Yes, the title sounds odd but the movie is so much sweeter past the sour first impression.

It is about a group of high school students who meet in detention and started a band. They were all ''nobodies'' to the world of high school students but they had so much amazing talent that was deep within them that was hidden because no one would give the chance to express their selves.

"Lemonade Mouth" has shown some light in real life.

The songs are some of my favorite part of the whole movie. Their song Turn up the Music is a fun and upbeat song that they first sing together in detention. This song just reminds me to let the music move you and to feel the beat and just let go. To live life and have fun and you do not have to be serious all the time.

Their next song Determinate that they play at their school Halloween Bash reminds me to take charge of your life and turn the world into your dance floor.Throw out of your worries and fears, live your life to the fullest and make every opportunity a life-changing opportunity. Show the people the real you and embrace it and be confident.

The next song Somebody reminds me that I and everyone else in the earth deserve to be somebody. People should not be in the shadows feeling like they are a nobody.


It teaches that everyone has a place in society. One person does not overtake the other. No one is worth any more love or hate / high or lower appreciate than the next person. All men are created equal and therefore should be treated that way.

Another point in this movie is that the arts in school are slowly dying as sports and popularity are taking over. Schools are slowly getting to the point where sports are more important than dancing, journalism, band, music, photography, etc.

Playing sports does not bump you up in getting better treatment. What I am trying to get at is that you should treat a person who is in a varsity jacket the same as a girl in ballerina slipper and a boy in the math club. "Lemonade Mouth" has become one of my favorite movies and if you have not watched it, I hope you do and it impacts you the way it has impacted me!

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
