Some students like to take spring/summer classes to get some courses out of the way. These courses are often fast tracked, and you may not feel that you have time on your hands. It is summer and the weather is starting to look nice, and you envy your friends who are going to barbecues and enjoying the nice weather. You miss being outside. However, studies show that taking spring/summer classes are better for you mental health. This is because you are getting courses out of the way, and by the time September rolls around you can take less classes, and have less stress, and possibly get a part-time job.
It is that time of year again, where girls are shopping for grad dresses, boys are renting tuxes and wondering what girl they should take to the banquet or dance with. The grad banquet is all fun and games, there is then very often an after-grad party. Some will never forget that night or some will forget it all and not remember it by morning. Some high schools have a grade 12 day, where anyone who went to graduation does not need to go to school the next day due to the hangovers everyone is having.
Netflix has become so popular that they had started making their own movies such as All the Boys I've Ever Loved and other fun nonsensical movies. Finally, Netflix has released the movie titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile a movie that was about one of the most horrendous serial killers out there. The movie was so captivating and it terrified me in ways I thought could never happen. It was not a thriller, but it was psychologically hideous. Ted Bundy was one of the worst serial killers that had ever exist—however, his charm and wit had ladies falling for him from left to right.
When we hear the words "Strong female leader" our minds usually wander to Oprah or Michele Obama.

Who are they, and what do they do that's inspirational?
Teen shows these days are all about rumors, gossip, and most of all drama. One of the most common shows that teens enjoy watching is Pretty Little Liars. A group of pretty, rich girls are being threatened by "A" who knows all of their secrets and can not wait to spill them all. However, from all the pretty little liars, Spencer is not a positive role model for teens. She is selfish, nosy, stubborn, and overly competitive and somehow ends up screwing her sister many times. Melissa was always the family favorite, making Spencer jealous.
Netflix has become more popular than television, and now it has more shows that are interesting, and above all, no commercials. I enjoyed watching the series Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars, they helped filled the void of my drama-less life. When I finished watching both those shows, I found myself flipping through Netflix trying to find something good to watch. I started to watch Gossip Girl and halfway through season two I could not stand to watch it anymore, because of how the characters acted like they were already adults, when realistically they were rich high school kids.
