The Greatest (Showman) of All Time

The Greatest (Showman) of All Time

It has Zac Efron in it, so it has to be good.

After hearing great reviews about the movie and soundtrack, I finally got around to seeing "The Greatest Showman." I know that I am so late to the game since the movie came out early December, but I still can't get over how much I enjoyed it. I really recommend it to everyone just as much as I think that everyone should listen to the album (which just went platinum).

I remember first seeing trailers with Zac Efron, and this is why I became interested in movie. It was the first time since "High School Musical" that he was going to be in a musical. I think he made a great decision for "The Greatest Showman" to be that musical. It was so good to hear him singing again. I remember listening to his solo parts in "Rewrite the Stars," and I was really impressed with how mature and developed he sounded.

Before I ever saw the movie, I had been listening to the soundtrack on constant repeat. One of my favorite songs was "Rewrite the Stars," but after seeing the movie I really loved "The Other Side." I guess I didn't change too much since both songs contain Zac Efron, but "The Other Side" had such a playful banter and intricate choreography. I could go on and on about all the different songs on the album. It's funny that I try to name my favorite song because there really isn't a bad one on the album.

If you really want to see how cute Zac Efron is just watch the video below. I love how he looks so happy to be back in the studio. Check it out here.

I only wish that the musical focused more on the lives of the people in the circus. Obviously, I know that the movie was inspired by P.T Barnum's life, but somehow I felt that characters like Lettie and Tom were robbed of screen time. I wanted the plot to highlight the bond the characters found in the circus.

The ending also seemed sudden, and I just wanted more plot line. The movie was already an hour and a half, so I understand that the writers didn't want to lose the interest of the audience.

I recommend this movie to everyone. Plus, you'll get to see Zac Efron return to his singing roots.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
