Movie Review: Wonder Woman


Good morning everyone I just made it in my house after seeing the new Wonder Woman movie and I have to say it is not what I thought it would be. It’s 2 a.m. and boy am I disappointed. through the last scenes of the movie I couldn’t shake the thought of writing an angry letter to DC and the producers of this movie. In the beginning of the movie I was okay because I love Wonder Woman’s back story of living in the lands where amazons rule and protect the world from the dangers of civilization and evil. I don’t want to go into too much detail because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.  There were a few comedic moments between the characters which I thought was a great idea to collide with Wonder Woman’s intense personality, it brought a more light side to the deep drama. The only thing that really bothered me while watching this movie is that it wasn’t as graphic as I thought it would be. The fighting scenes were okay, but I felt like it could have been better. I was expecting to hear some bones snap, more powerful effects, and more than just making Wonder Woman act like a character standing for girl power. Just because the film is about a female super hero that doesn’t mean that the fights shouldn’t be more barbaric and messy, it’s the best part. I also noticed a lot of sexual references associated with the on-screen relationship that Wonder Woman has with Steve which also is humorous, but takes away from Wonder Woman’s dynamic character in my opinion. My expectations were different before I seen the movie. I thought that she would not trust men at all and that the male characters would have to work to earn her trust, but that wasn’t the case. Overall the movie wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as great as my friends were making it seem. On a scale from 1-10 I would give this movie a 7.5.



5 Seconds Of Summer Possible Third Album Release In 2017?




Will 5SOS come back with a third album better than “Sounds good feels Feels good”? I really hope, rumors and 5SOS teases a possible third album from the talented group this year. In a video posted by Michael Clifford on twitter, he says “We just want you to know were still alive”. That is pretty obvious since they are breathing, moving, and making noises out of there face so, our beloved Michael teases us that music will live and is in working progress. Lets not forget Ashton Irwin’s (Cough, Cough my dream husband) post captioned  “Insert album Due Date 00/00/17”. Now that was certainly not over looked. As eager as I am to hear new music from them, I understand the stress the band goes through being popular internationally. The Sounds good feels good tour wore them out, you can see it in their faces. That explains the brief hiatus that the band has taken before getting back into the studio. I’m glad to see the third album in the making and the band won’t keep their fans starving. Be patient 5SOS fans.

Get Involved In Parchment

I’ve had the opportunity to be introduced to parchment a few weeks ago by my counselor and I would like to share why schools and students should get involved.

1)Parchment is a lot easier compared to a counselor’s offices pilled with students request to send their transcripts to other colleges. If you didn’t know October is college month so the counselor’s office is usually busy around this time of the year because students need their information to colleges. With parchment it creates less stress and time to handle each graduating student with the admission process.

2) It’s easier for the Students to access while college hunting. When a student submits their application to a college or university, the usual last steps to take is to send their official high school transcript and SAT scores. This will make the application process go a lot smoother and somewhat faster.

3) You, your parents, and counselor can access your transcripts electronically. Once you’ve made your parchment account, your school counselor can approve for your transcripts to  be sent to the colleges you have applied for and you can have a copy for yourself.

4) IT’S FREE! That’s right your transcripts are completely free if your school informs you that you will not be charged with any fees or if they have waived them. No more waiting on your turn in the counselors office. If you’ve already signed up for parchment or considering it as a transcript alternative go to to create an account and complete the student information.

As always everyone thank you so much for reading and have a good one.




Scholarship Websites

I would like to share some of the top scholarship search engines to help with your scholarship hunting. Good luck to you all!


Hi guys I just wanted to reach out to my teen viewers and tell you how important your senior year is. Of course you have homecoming, prom, and graduation, but you still have to make it through the year. Apparently there is a disease called senioritis, I was told you get it when you just really stop caring about senior year. Seriously it is not the time for that, even If you did get accepted into a college already don’t stop. You’re still in the beginning of your journey, it’s just that you survived the jungle we call high school.

If you made it this far, I just want to say from the bottom of my heart that I am extremely proud of you. It takes more than just knowledge to get through those four years and now that you are months  away from receiving your cap and gown, I want you to soak in all of the good memories. Some students like me were told that they would never become anything and that their life is worthless, but at the end of the day we’ve proved them wrong. I might even shed some tears at my own graduation because this year my grandfather isn’t living which tears at me each and everyday I walk in my home. I have him to thank  for being in my life as a male figure when my own biological father didn’t want to be a father to me. My mother wants nothing to do with me so I won’t look for her support. That just leaves my grandma, but It doesn’t bother me because I can walk across the stage and say “I did it”.

I want everyone to say that they did it. College may not be in your mind at the moment because it isn’t for everyone, but at least you started off with a huge accomplishment. This is going to be a very exciting moment and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for each and every last one of you. Seniors don’t forget to apply for FASFA and Colleges so that you can get acceptance letters and financial help if you need it. I’ve noticed a lot of the college application deadlines are November 1, 2016, but some are different. Don’t let anyone discourage you from pursuing your dreams, this is about you so make everything worth it. Everyone enjoy your evening and may this year be a blessed one for the class of 2017. I love you guys.
