The Fantastically Dramatic and Peculiar Week Of Oct. 14

Some exciting things have been happening lately, so here's the "week in review."

The Fantastically Dramatic and Peculiar Week Of Oct. 14

This has been a crazy week. I’ve been super busy, yet I feel like nothing too exciting happened to me personally. There are, however, a few things that stuck out about this past week that I would love to talk about. So think of this article as a sort of “week in review” to catch you up on some exciting things that happened this week.

1. Screaming for “Scream Queens”

I have watched “Scream Queens” since it premiered in Fall 2015. It was weird at first, but it got so much better every week and the big reveal of the killer (or rather, killers? #spoileralert) was amazing. So when the show got renewed for a second season, of course, I was excited. And the first two weeks of Season 2 were good. But it wasn’t until this week’s episode that I really decided that maybe this season will be even better than the original. I think what made this week even better was that the intensity picked up and they killed off a pretty major character. They also dropped a hint or at least what I took as a hint, to who the killer or relative of the killer could be. The other exciting thing about this show is that I have been picking up on the color symbolism which I love. I don’t recall if it happened in the first season, but this year the killer is called the Green Meanie and it seems that every time someone is going to die, there is green lighting somewhere in the scene. (Red lighting was used when Season 1’s killer, the Red Devil, made an appearance.) It just really amuses me.

2. Fantastic News and Where To Find It

I’m a Harry Potter fan. You probably know this about me. So when I heard that the “Fantastic Beasts” trilogy was being upgraded to five films, I freaked out! I also heard, from a different source that I don’t know if I trust 100%, that Dumbledore and Grindelwald from the “Harry Potter” series will show up in the future films. Even if they don’t, we know for sure that they’re mentioned. We’re still getting more time to enjoy the Wizarding World, so whatever works.

3. So Many Seasons…

I finally finished Season 4 of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Only nine more seasons to go… I was very pleased with how the fourth season ended though because I was honestly afraid for the characters’ lives. No spoilers, but I know someone major has to be dying by the end of the fifth season. You can’t just keep all of the main characters of a hospital drama living forever. Honestly, this show is in my top five and it has been since this summer.

4. Something “Peculiar” Happened

Last week, I went to see “Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children” and honestly, it was one of the best films I have ever seen. In my whole life. I can only think of a handful of movies that I possibly like more, although they may be equal. After seeing the movie, I immediately ordered the trilogy on Amazon and plan to start reading them within the month. If the movie is that amazing, I have faith that the books will be even more fantastic.

5. #JustFrankensteinThings

If you didn’t know, I’m in “Frankenstein” this fall. I’m the Constable (who I have named Charles) and, although I don’t have many lines, I have come to appreciate this story so much. I have never read the original story, but just seeing my castmates pour their all into the show is so exciting. The rehearsals are so much fun too because the cast is made up of so many awesome people who I am proud to call my friends. Some of us went to Steak ‘n Shake the other night (really late by the way; I was so tired the next morning) and we laughed and had great conversations. So many good things have come out of this experience already and we’re only two weeks into rehearsals.

So that’s about it for my week in review. Mostly pop culture, but I guess there were some pretty fun things going on in my life. Thanks for reading this fun little article. Let me know how your week went and what you think about “Scream Queens,” “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” or any of the other things I talked about. See you next week.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
