I originally was going to use a picture from the movie, but realized they were all too inappropriate… (image via thecinemasource.com)
I had to debate whether or not I should write this post. I ended up making a pros v. cons list – pros: I can start a cycle of reflecting about every movie I see on my blog, I can share my thoughts about a somewhat important societal issue, I can include a picture of Channing Tatum on my blog, cons: college admissions officers might see this and doubt my innocence/how well I spend my time.
Well, the pros won.
I’ll keep my thoughts on the movie short, as I’m no professional film reviewer. Continue reading

Hi everyone! So this is just one of those spur-of-the-moment diary-type posts I’ve decided to write simply to inform everyone why I haven’t been updating regularly.
You see, I have been battling these pesky little things called “exams”. And they’re winning. I have six major exams coming up in the next two months, and that’s excluding my final exams for the courses I’m taking in school. Typical junior year problems, I’m aware.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I got my acceptance letter for a pretty prestigious program in the mail this week. I get to go study at a college over the summer, woo! And I have acquired some other minor awards too. Good stuff, good stuff. I hope everyone else has had a good week and will have an even better one starting on Monday!
A few weeks ago in AP Psychology my class and I were discussing human sexuality, and specifically, the fraternal birth order effect. It was an interesting and intellectual discussion, and one of the better ones we had had, until someone said:
“Oh my gosh, I have three younger brothers. One of them could be gay. That’s so depressing.”
Immediately I thought to myself,” Why is that depressing, huh? Just because one of your brothers has a slightly higher chance of being homosexual? Does that mean you would stop loving him? That’s so shallow, my goodness…”
