Netflix’s recent release of “Stranger Things 4” brought with it a ton of new developments, a mind-blowing cliffhanger ending, and plenty of unanswered questions. Now that El knows the truth, what will she do? What’s happening with the California squad that we haven’t heard from? Is there a chance for Steve and Nancy to get back together? Why did Henry Creel/Vecna/001 look so young when he should’ve been close to 30?

Naturally there has been fan speculation about all of this (well, except the last one). Theories that this season will see the death of Dr. Brenner and possibly Sam Owens. The reveal of Vecna alone was jaw-dropping. I have a feeling now that El knows what really happened at the massacre, her anger will make her more powerful than ever; she’ll realize she doesn’t “need” the doctors anymore. Mike, Will, Jonathan, and Argyle now have the location of Nina thanks to Suzie (who I personally hope to see more of). Volume 2 will likely see all of them come together with El to take down Hawkins Lab.

While looking for Vecna and a way to prove Eddie’s innocence, definite sparks were flying between Steve and Nancy. Which of course were obvious to everyone EXCEPT them. Steve has been trying unsuccessfully to date again, and to me the lack of success is in part due to his personal growth combined with the fact that he still has strong feelings for Nancy. Nancy and Jonathan were struggling with a long-distance relationship since the Byers’ move to California, and although they’ve been planning to reunite at college, Jonathan revealed a change of heart unbeknownst to his girlfriend. So, maybe the former couple will have another shot.

This season has arguably been the best yet, and there are certainly high expectations for volume 2. Nancy's still cursed, although Max appears to have fallen off Vecna's radar for the time being. Whether Steve sacrifices himself for Nancy (fingers crossed against this), Eleven defeats Vecna, maybe an even bigger plot twist that no one could’ve predicted. We’ll just have to wait till July to find out.

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.

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.
