Why Eleven Needs To Be In Season Two
http://www.mirror.co.uk

Binge watching is the best way to spend a day off. As a film and television fanatic,one of my favorite aspects of streaming sites like Netflix is the ability to watch a whole series in one sitting, if you so please. A few weekends ago was Labor Day and on this weekend off I watched Stranger Things. For quite some time now I have heard extraordinary reviews in regards to this production, therefore I took it upon myself to watch, however, I did not expect to love it as much as I did. Stranger Things does a remarkable job at showcasing the importance of friendship as well as creating a "bad ass" female character, Eleven. In television today it seems to be a rare occurrence for producers to write strong female characters, and if they are strong it seems as the story progresses they turn weak or become a simple love interest for the lead; but fortunately that was not the case for Eleven, instead she was the heart and strength of the story and the group.

In recent weeks there has been a lot of speculation on what to expect from the story next season, however, a lot of fans, including myself are becoming skeptical in regards to watching due to the comments from the writers on Eleven's involvement in the story, and a new female coming. It has been stated that Eleven may not return. Those who have watched the show know that Eleven sacrificed herself in order to save the boys, which makes it unclear on how much we will see of our favorite girl. According to the writers, "Max is one of the new characters who is described as tough and confident and whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era." So what does this mean for Eleven? One has to ask themselves, "is Eleven really gone?" "Is Max replacing her?" I hope the answer is no to all of those questions.

Eleven easily became my favorite character of the series. Complexity and dark background stories in characters are my favorite kind, perhaps that is why Anakin Skywalker and Draco Malfoy are my favorite characters of all time because like Eleven there is so much more to them than you understand. I love her traumatic background,her vulnerability aspect but still she possess such a strong heart. I also love the dynamic between Eleven and Mike, it is very sweet and heart warming to watch on screen, but most importantly I love her power and independence.

I ask, can we not have two bad-ass females in a show? Max sounds very interesting and I am intrigued to know more about her, but we don't have to lose one strong female to make another. Eleven brings so much to the group and more importantly to the show. I think the writers would be very dumb to get rid of her.

What does Eleven bring to the table and why should they keep her? 1) Uniqueness and Relatability. Eleven isn't like most girls her age, she wasn't brought up like the rest of them but, instead she was a subject to experiments because of the power she possessed, and as a result this era is foreign to her, causing her to be very vulnerable to this world. Eleven often shows vulnerability especially with Mike but that in no way makes her weak as a hero and protagonist , it makes her relatable. 2) Powerful and Strong. Eleven is an extremely strong character, physically and emotionally.Halfway through the season, it becomes clear how powerful Eleven is. It is evident if Eleven is not on your team she can do serious damage to you, but she is also powerful emotionally. Eleven went through a lot of trauma in her life at such a young age but instead of giving up continues to fight, and refuses to let the individuals who want to harm her win. 3) Independent and Survivor. These two traits are the reason she lived as long as she did. Due to her upbringing, Eleven had to learn how to be independent and take care of herself. Eleven doesn't need anyone,especially a boy to help her survive, she has the capability to do that by herself. 4) Sweet and Innocent. Despite Eleven's sad history, she still possesses a strong heart and does not want to hurt anyone, especially Mike. Eleven wants to protect her friends at whatever cost it takes. Most individuals with a traumatic past often have a dark personality but Eleven is extremely innocent and nieve to this world she is living in.

Eleven is the heart and soul of the show, as well as one of the many reasons so many people fell in love with Stranger Things, it would be very dumb to not include her in season two. Eleven is the queen and needs to be back!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7290

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
