Why 'Fantastic Beasts' Is A Must-See

A couple of reasons why the new Harry Potter movie is just amazing.

Why 'Fantastic Beasts' Is A Must-See

On a cold Thursday night, walking back from the movie theater (because yes, one of the buses we were supposed to catch just didn't show up), I felt like when I was seven years old.

The reason? The new Harry Potter movie.

Hands down one of the best night this quarter, with the girls from my floor we were so ready for the movie.

And it didn't let me down: no matter the anxiety and uncertainty it was just extraordinary.

My main fear was that David Yates was directing it (and we all know some "What have you just done" moments in the last couple of HP movies that just were not in the book) and also that it may not be as good as Harry Potter himself.

I mean, we have never actually heard that much about Newt Scamander.

However, it left me breathless.

So, a couple of reasons why you should run to the movie theater if you haven't done so already:

1. Eddie Redmayne is just extraordinary.

I literally stared at the screen in awe. My personal opinion? He would make an excellent Doctor in "Doctor Who" (fandoms colliding).

2. The setting is just great.

New York City in the '20s.

3. The storyline about Jacob, a simple "Muggle" that ends up in the world of magic.

4. All the super cute fantastic beasts and the special effects used that are just marveling.

5. The HUGE plot twist at the end.

Which I'm not telling you, of course.

Mischief managed.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
