11 Reasons 'Jane The Virgin' Is the Biggest Breakout Show On T.V.

“She needed a hero, so that’s what she became.” -Jane The Virgin

Jane The Virgin is a show on the CW based on a woman who was accidentally artificially inseminated...and is a virgin. Now, this may sound like a weird plotline, however, it is one of the most inspirational shows on T.V. (In my opinion, at least). I'm a big series binger and there has yet to be a show I have come across this unique, uplifting, emotional, funny and profound. Here are 11 reasons why:

1. Jane is honest, has her faults and works hard at being the best version of herself.

She shows us that life doesn’t come easy, but its all worth it. ..Most of the time

2. Gina Rodriguez is a gift to the acting community.

She won a Golden Globe for goodness sakes. All I want is to be her best friend, honestly. And her wardrobe for Season 4 is killer.

3. The show gives you the twists and turns of real life. Showing us that there's not always a fairytale ending... but there's always a way to move forward and find happiness again.

4. Rogelio is one of the funniest characters to grace the screen.

5. It's a show full of powerful, strong and diverse women.

What other show on TV right now has so many diverse independent women ranging from a multitude of backgrounds?

6. Mateo(s) is the cutest.

7. We get a lot of telenovela action, making the show unique from anything else on American TV.

There are scenes that are so bizarre; you cannot help but keep watching.

8. The show makes fun of itself.

9. It teaches us that there’s always a way to "let some light in."

10. The show isn’t afraid to break boundaries and say it like it is.

The filmography is top notch as well, giving us unique visuals and opposing opinions to hook viewers in even more.

11. The men are SEXY and will make you feel all the feels.

PSA: To all of the fans out there, Snow Falling is now a real published book.

To the guy that shot my brother...


To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.

The Walking Bird Box: Reflections on "Humanity" during the Apocalypse

Philosophical questions on human truth and bloody carnage and breathtaking suspense? A.K.A. Every apocalypse movie ever.


Netflix's hit special Bird Box follows the steps of must-watch originals from the popular streaming service. Reviews, memes, and non-stop discussion and critiques surround the blockbuster's apocalypse survival style.

For those not in the know (warning, spoilers ahead!), Bird Box follows Mallorie, a woman with a jaded past and attitude to match. The world she lives in is turned on its head when people commit suicide. A mysterious entity influences people who see it -- commit suicide.

She finds herself with a group of strangers struggling to survive, including a hot-tempered and insensitive older man, an elderly woman with secret badass instincts, and a gentle, "husband material" type. Besides the threat of the invisible source, the group must also watch out for "followers" of the entity that force non-followers' eyes open so they see the creature and kill themselves. Bird Box, a hold-your-breath suspense story, follows in the steps of almost every apocalypse movie filmed, written, and narrated.

Why shouldn't it be? As Blake Snyder states in his screenwriting guide Save the Cat!, "Give us the same thing...only different." Birdbox follows the same roadmap allocated by hits like The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, and Day of the Dead. Protagonist previously isolated from society? Check.

Unknown cause, be it a virus or a creature, attacking humanity and forcing individuals to become nonsensical and violent? Check.

A group of strangers trying to survive while in conflict with one another, with some individuals' compassion ranging the size of a teaspoon? Check, Check, and Check.

Bird Box is the identical story and similar personalities, but just an influential entity instead of hordes of zombies. The same thing...only different.

Apocalypse-based narratives aren't just thriller movies but can reveal multiple truths of our society. In essence, it reveals what happens when the selfish and selfless clash. These narratives indicate what happens when it is "one person for themselves." Groups are against each other and then the group itself may turn on one another. As a society, most tend to strive to be helpful, compassionate, and agreeable human beings.

However, behind the altruism and reciprocity, there is the philosophical question of "How truly selfless are we?" Is what we do for our benefit, whether that pay-off is money, another service, or just feeling pleased with ourselves for helping others? The best aspect of apocalypse-movies is the psychological examination of how far can we go, and would we go, when we're rid of the commodities of comfortable living (I'm sure Siri isn't useful in the apocalypse) and brought back to our barest, most nude version of human nature. It's Lord of the Flies on steroids. According to these mediums, we are capable of violence, inflicting pain, and causing distrust. However, we are also capable of kindness, awareness, and love. Whoever we are during an apocalypse is our self without social teachings on morality and ethics.

I personally hope I never have to find out who that person is...
