24 years, 4 movies, same result.

Toy Story Made Me Cry AGAIN!

Pixar, you did it again.

You made a "Toy Story" movie, the fourth in 24 years. You hit grandslams with all three despite all of the odds against you.

The first one was a groundbreaking masterpiece as the first movie ever to be entirely out of computer animation. The second movie was a miracle after Pixar nearly had the entire movie deleted and then started over to finish three years worth of work in less than one. Then ten years after two titans of animation you added a third one to the mix without ease. Many argue that "Toy Story 3" was the best of the three. Honestly, it's impossible to say which is better because all 3 went the distance as near-perfect if not perfect films.

But then, you went for a fourth one. I mean come on, there's no way a fourth "Toy Story" movie could match the same level as the other three knockouts. Not every Pixar movie is a guaranteed classic anymore. For every "Inside Out" there's a "Cars" movie. We've been getting Pixar sequel overkill with some decent ones like "Monsters University" and "Finding Dory" and an awesome one in "Incredibles 2." But there is no way a fourth "Toy Story" movie could deliver on the previous three.

The "Toy Story" movie franchise had a chance to end on a perfect note. How many trilogies do we have where all three movies are legitimately great? "The Lord of The Rings" and.....that's it!

So it's almost pure hubris for Pixar to go back to the well again and extend the saga of their most iconic franchise.

And dammit Pixar, you made me cry again!

It was another perfect ending to the "Toy Story" saga that I thought didn't need to continue, but it turns out you were right and I was dead wrong.

You even took a character like Bo Peep, who wasn't even in the third movie, and made her the most fun and interesting character of the whole movie! You had a toy villain who was worthy of belonging in the same class as Stinky Pete and Lotso the bear and added more dimensions to her and gave her a great arc!

You even deconstructed the fascinating lore of how toys are made and why they are alive with the absurb creation of a toy made out of trash named Forkie! And you managed to reunite Key and Peele!

And I'm a 25 year old dude who hardly cries in movies no matter how hard I try and you made me cry easily at the end!

Dammit Pixar! How do you keep defying the animation Gods with masterpiece after masterpiece with these movies about toys!

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
