Not a fan, Netflix.

'Sierra Burgess Is A Loser'? More Like This Movie's Plot Is A Loser

I recently watched the Netflix movie "Sierra Burgess is a Loser" and I have to say I was not a fan. As I was watching it I just started to get mad at what they made these characters out to be. First of all Sierra Burgess, the main character in the movie was the "loser" because she didn't have great style, was in the band and was smart. (At least that's what I picked out from it.)

Wait, what?!?

OK, first of all, it was evident that Sierra struggled with her body image, which is understandable. The thing is though you don't have to have the perfect body, you can still dress like a queen!!! They didn't have to make her wear baggy clothing or unflattering sweaters. Also, her dress at the end was terrible, while she had to wear this dress that was not-age appropriate for her, Veronica got this wear, of course, a classier dress. It just didn't make any sense to me, they could have dressed Sierra in so many better outfits that were fit for her body type.

Also, when it came to all the cruel things that Veronica would say to Sierra why would she just stand there and take it?! I would never just let someone just throw all those hurtful words at me and take it. I would stand up for myself, but no because she was the "loser" she had to stand there and take it. Yes, Veronica had a really bad home life, but that doesn't give her the excuse to just shoot back at people every day.

It was sad, not encouraging, when Sierra had to hide herself when Jamey thought she was really Veronica. She was so afraid to show him who she really was because she wasn't like Veronica, what is that even teaching people who watch this movie? Is it teaching to hide who you truly are because you don't think you're good enough?

Basically, I just don't think this movie gave an overall good message about life in high school, how you should treat yourself and how you should let others treat you. It was unrealistic and at the end of the movie, I received no good message out of it.

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.
