SPOILER ALERT!

We've all done it. We've logged onto Twitter the night of a season finale or after the release of a highly anticipated movie and seen something we wish we hadn't. Maybe a friend accidentally blurted out a spoiler in the middle of conversation. Here are a few relatively recent spoilers that got to me before I could see the production for myself. I hope they didn't get to you, because they sure did upset me!

Spoilers are not cool if they can be avoided. That being said, this is one huge **SPOILER ALERT** for this article, so read at your own risk!

1. Grey's Anatomy

I'll admit that I had this one coming. I was a junior in high school when the episode "How to Save a Life" aired, showing the car crash and subsequent death of Derek Shepherd. How would one have made it through an entire day of high school without hearing the news? This spoiler wasn't especially surprising, since nearly all of the original cast has been killed. Apparently doctors are especially susceptible to car, bus, or plane crashes.

2. The Walking Dead

I only recently started The Walking Dead on Netflix, so I was no where near ready to hear about this one. The Season Six premiere saw the death of Glenn, the beloved young man who allowed Rick Grimes to survive past the second episode of the series. Outraged fans immediately took to social media to mourn the death of the main character, unintentionally sharing the news with those of us who haven't managed to catch up.

3. The Fault In Our Stars

I'll never forget how this one was spoiled for me. I had been actively avoiding spoilers the entire week leading up to the release of The Fault in Our Stars, in an attempt to finish the book without hearing the ending. That's right, I was trying not to cheat by reading first. Since it was a book, it happened to come up in one of my classes. One of my friends in that class blurted out that she had seen a picture on Twitter that said "Gus Waters Dies," which was meant for the cheaters who planned to only see the movie. I lost all motivation to finish the book, but the movie was exactly the stereotypical-teenage-novel-movie that I had expected.

4. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

As a comic book fan, I knew this was coming as soon as Gwen Stacy was made to be Peter Parker's main love interest for two movies. Gwen's death was incredibly significant to the Spider-Man canon, since it was his failure that killed her. Had he been faster or more careful, he could have saved her properly. Also, all of the guilty foreshadowing made it pretty obvious by the middle of the movie. But what I did not know, until it was spoiled, exactly how it happened in the latest reboot.

5. Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens

It's been over thirty years since we last saw Han Solo, and he has since had a son, Ben. Ben Solo, known also as Kylo Ren, turned to the Dark Side and eventually killed his father. This may come as a shock, since it did to me, and the friend of mine who spoiled it for me. The shock was actually what caused the spoil. A good friend was describing how someone had told him the news of Han's death before he got a chance to see the movie. He was so riled up that, despite trying to avoid spoiling it, he just directly quoted his spoiler, saying "Han dies." Like many others, I grew up with Star Wars, and I had (a new) hope that Episode VII would be far better than the prequels which were released during my lifetime. Luckily, my hopes were met and the spoiler seemed insignificant by the time the end credits rolled on screen.

Once again, spoilers are not cool. If you were lucky enough to avoid them for these movies and shows, just realize how much you enjoyed these shocks when you never saw them coming. So please, for the sake of everyone's sanity, don't share spoilers without an alert!

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
