Reflections on Magic Mike, the Comfort Zone, and the Concept of YOLO

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

Oh Thomas, Where Art Thou?

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. The good thing about this is that now I can truthfully tell people that I’m busy instead of fabricating lies that I have friends.

Just wanted to let you guys know the reason why I’ve been busy so that you won’t assume I’ve abandoned you to go off and play with my fictional friends for no reason. In the mean time I’ll be responding to comments and messages from this blog and hopefully squeezing in a post or two. But, as I wrote in a post awhile ago,  I gotta keep my priorities straight, right?

If anyone has any questions for me, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments or via a message. I apologize in advance for those who are angry that they’ve received an update for a new post when in reality they only got this sad excuse for a… anyway, I’m going to go do homework now. Bye!

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!

Watch What You Say… And What You Post

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…”

I Have a Twitter!/U-Kiss’s “Neverland”

So this is a short little personal update, I wanted to let you guys know I finally created an account on Twitter! You can push the button on the right to follow me. I currently have zero followers, which is indicative of the lack of friends I have in real life.

Anyway, have you ever noticed how much time social networking takes? After creating my account on Twitter I had to share it with all of my friends (I have friends?) on Facebook, now I’m writing this post, and then I’ll have to write a tweet or something… my quadratic equations and rhetorical analysis assignments are waiting for me! How will I survive without doing my homework!? (at this point I’m not even sure if I’m being sarcastic…)

Just so people can’t accuse me of not including any content in this post, here’s the song I’ve been listening to nonstop lately:

“Neverland” is a fantastic amazing club/workout song, and its beat is amazingly addictive – I’ve never been a big fan of U-Kiss, but I’ll have to reconsider that listening to this song so extensively.

Kevin can definitely take me to Neverland... wait, I mean Key. Now I have two attractive, girl-group dancing male K-Pop idols to fanboy!

How many social networking sites do you use? I use four – Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, and WordPress. How often do you use your social networking sites? And if you’re also a fan of U-Kiss’s “Neverland” or U-Kiss’s Kevin, let me know!
