    Top Ten Disney Villain Deaths

    Top Ten Disney Villain Deaths

    I am a big fan of Disney movies, everyone who knows me, knows that I am possibly one of the biggest Disney fan out there. Disney movies are however, not all happy go lucky when it comes to killing off their villains. Sometimes, the villain is left alive and other times, they get killed off. Here is a list of my top ten Disney deaths.

    Magic of Marie Kondo

    Magic of Marie Kondo

    Today was women's day. The day where we are supposed to look up to an amazing woman that changed your life and say thank you. There are many celebrities that we can look up to, the typical ones include; Oprah, Mother Theresa, Michelle Obama, and Marie Curie. I wanted to write about someone that inspires me, but not someone that pops into my head right away. That's when I spotted Marie Kondo, she is the one that came up with her method of de-cluttering your room and home. The idea behind her philosophy is asking yourself "does this bring me happiness?" and if the answer is no, you simply get rid of it. Many people can be confused and think that it is a minimalist way of living, but in fact, it is surrounding yourself with the things you love. I recently visited her web page and it states "As a young girl fascinated with tidying, I thought the goal was to get rid of as many things as possible. This single-minded focus on discarding had a negative impact on my health – one day I actually fainted from all the stress!" so you see it is not about getting rid of as many things as you can, it is simply getting rid of the things that do not bring you joy into your life. I recently, started focusing on decluttering my room, and I have so many "stuff" and I am never sure of what to get rid of. I grew up with my father, who likes to take stuff that is free and likes a good deal on anything. My dad's motto is to never throw it or it will come to use one day. My oldest sister says "every time, I think that one day it will come to use", she tosses it straight to the garbage. Unfortunately for me, I have the same mindset as my dad, so I tend to keep all this stuff, which I do not need. Then, I heard about Marie Kondo first from my oldest sister that said something about her method when she first started to move out and then again, from my other sister. This has been the hardest task for me, is getting rid of things that I do not need, so I have been asking myself "does this bring me joy?" if not, then straight to the donation pile. According to Marie Kondo, she had an epiphany where she wrote: "tidying is about what you want to keep in your life, not what you want to eliminate." This quote has changed my life in an instant. From reading that simple sentence and it brought everything to light.

    The Conflict with Joe

    The Conflict with Joe

    Netflix and chill. The perfect combination on a Friday night. I recently binged my way through all fifteen seasons of Grey’s Anatomy and now I found another drama to follow called “you”. “You” is about a psychopathic stalker who comes off as “normal” through narration and perspective of the main character who happens to be the protagonist. Well, boys and girls not all protagonists are good. Joe is the classic example of an evil protagonist. It starts off innocent with a guy liking a girl, she introduces herself as Beck. And like anyone in this century looks up Joe looks up her social media profile. Then, we see him being kind to his neighbor's child name Paco. Again, this is a normal attitude. Joe gets jealous easily, he decides to torture Benji and then kills him because he saw Benji as an obstacle between Beck and him. So, he gets rid of him officially. Next, we see Joe get jealous of Peach, Beck’s best friend and he is at first in a weird friendly (I use the word friendly lightly here) competition where it is Joe 1 and Peach 0. He then starts to see what an influence Peach has on Beck’s life and finds a rock to solve all the problems. Like a coward he runs from the scene of the crime. Joe Goldberg worries that other people are manipulating Beck when realistically, he is isolating her from everyone she cared about. So he is manipulating Beck, but the problem is, he sees it as protecting her from everyone else. He goes on pretending and faking everything and Beck is constantly falling for it. Peach is then a victim to him, but he was unsuccessful and keeps putting himself against her and seems to be losing. Beck has no idea that Peach has a thing for her, she watches her, has photographs of her, her password to her computer is beckilicious even. Beck has now two stalkers as we find out. Peach wants Beck all to herself and no one else. Joe is standing in the way of that. Peach then plans to take Beck away to Paris and to live there. I know I would jump at the chance to live in Paris. Here is what I am thinking Peach knows Joe a little too well, she has broken into Joe's apartment and maybe she made a discovery about him, that Joe is unaware of, she possibly knows that is it Joe trying to kill her and stalking her. She could also know that Joe is actually has been stalking Beck for months, but she does not let on that she knows anything, much like Joe lets on that he is only learning about Beck, when in fact he has been watching her for months and learning everything about her through observation. Paco is where everything confuses me. Paco is constantly on the staircase reading while his mom and Ron are fighting again. Joe always acknowledges him and gives him books to read and gives him advice and tells him what he should and should not do about Ron. Paco then, tries to slip a sleeping pill t Ron and Joe saved Ron's life instead of calling the cops and claim that Ron had over dosed and fell in the hallway that would have protected Paco from being taken away from his mom, Ron would have either died, or been hospitalized and he would be out of Paco's life. Joe takes a serious beating from Ron and does not call the cops on him or press charges. Joe is like the parent that Paco does not have and I feel like that is why the audience is so conflicted on how they see Joe. However, Joe was in the same house as Peach and Beck and he just sneaks around and judging Peach for her every move even though he is doing the same thing to Beck. He is also obsessed with her and is judging Beck's decisions to stay friends with Peach. Beck gets drugged and is being touched by Peach and Beck immediately realizes what is happening and leaves the room. Now, this is where I feel bad about Beck, she has what she thinks is a best friend and a great boyfriend when really Peach and Joe are the worst for her. They both manipulate her constantly and are at a battle constantly. Peach is smart, and that's what keeps Joe and Peach alive. Peach shoots him and now I am not sure who's side I am on. Joe writes a suicide note in Peach's name and once again Joe wins, and that's what he constantly does. He wins, he is the stalker you never want in your life. After Peach's death, Joe takes care of Beck and he fills her fridge and he is an emotional support for her, but he is bad news. He keeps killing the people in Beck's life just to have her for herself. We know that he will keep doing it. So maybe it is not so confusing after all, he knows how to win every. single. time.

    Where is my Pair?

    Where is my Pair?

    We use many things in our daily lives that comes in pairs such as a pair of pants, a pair of mittens, a pair of gloves, a pair of shoes and lastly a pair of socks. Now, here is my concern: you wear a pair of mittens and they match, if you left the house with different pairs of mittens it would be weird, people would look at you funny and think "why are they wearing mismatched mittens?" Same would be with a pair of shoes. One would never walk out of the house wearing a boot on one foot and a sneaker on the other right? Reader, I feel like you have been agreeing with me so far on all of these pairs correct? correct. Well, then I have a wondering for you folks out there; why are you okay with wearing mismatched socks? Socks should not be mismatched like all the other items that you put on. I understand the fact that if you put a pair of socks in the wash only one comes out for some bizarre reason. This is where you go raiding your sister's drawers to find your sock, you would do the same if it were mittens would you not? You would be turning your house upside down to find that missing mitten and if you do not find the pair then you go to the store and buy some new gloves. Then, why is it that you do not go to the store to buy new socks, ones that you know, match? instead you are willing to wear two different pairs of socks and walk around like it is okay. Well, here is where my opinion is different most people are okay with walking around their house with their mismatched socks, where as for me it drives me up the wall. I remember one day where I was running late for work and for the life of me I could not find that black sock that matched my other black sock, but I was already frustrated because I was late and I grabbed a different black sock and I could tell it was different by the fabric. The fabric was thin almost the material of tights the other sock on my left foot was thick fabric, almost like winter socks and it felt weird. My feet felt weird the entire shift because my one foot was sweaty and the other foot was perfectly fine. It was the oddest feeling in the world. It is similar to that feeling you have when on a hot day, the only thing that is cold is your stomach and you put your hands on your stomach and you feel your body cool down. It was like that, but it did not feel nice, it felt really weird instead. Socks are created in large company's and they make sure that each sock is exactly the same.

    "Les Miserables" it truly was

    "Les Miserables" it truly was

    It was the year 2012 when my facebook page started blowing up with comments about "Les Miserables". Many people wrote "Amazing beautiful film" and "you have to go see it". I gave into peer pressure, especially after my sister gave in and she said it was one of the most wonderful films that she had seen. One night, I gave in and decided to go see the movie with my parents. I knew what I was expecting because I have seen clips of it live on YouTube and I have read the Junior High Version of it. I liked the story about a man who has been a criminal all of his life and a simple act of kindness turned him into an honest man. Now, to refresh your memory this movie had won the academy award for best picture, best supporting actress, best actor, best costume design, best production design, and best makeup and hair styling. I agree with most of those wins except best picture. The lights were lowered the trailers stopped and here started the longest two hours and forty minutes of my life. I am someone who enjoys musicals such as Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain, Oklahoma, Rent and Cats. For people who think I do not have the attention span to sit through a musical are wrong. The first song was one of my favorites "look down" I like the rolling drums and the sound of crashing waves, but then Russell Crowe starts to sing, that was the movies first mistake. Instead of getting him to lip sync in the movie, they got him to sing. Now, the title of the movie should give away the fact that this is not going to be a happy movie, which is fine. I was prepared for that. The constant tone is dark and foreboding and that's not something that bothers me. Did they really have to sing every single line? I know that's how it was written, but once in a while a line would have been nice to see and hear. All of Russell Crowe's lines should have been spoken. Then, the worst most agonizing part of the movie was Fantine's death, why did it take her so long to die? that was torture I remember thinking "just die already, why isn't she dead?" it was like watching a tragedy from Shakespeare where the script says "he dies" and then a few lines later the character is still speaking. Except it was long and boring. This is where the camera angles made me fee sick, why did it have to be rough? I want to watch a movie, not board a ship. I understand that they were trying to portray the hard times, but I did not want to have a hard time watching the movie. Then, I was hoping that would be over, but I had forgotten about the second part of the movie where Cosette is all grown up and falling in love. It felt like it took centuries to get to the end of the movie. The only song I actually felt good about was the finale. Finally, something good is happening in the movie. All the depressing parts had to be dragged out and then when something positive happens in the movie it does not last very long? You put me through that long disastrous movie just to have a "meh" ending? I left the movie theater and I was glad that the only two people who agreed with me were my parents. I posted a fake positive review as my status because if i posted my true feelings about it I would be getting negative comments on what a terrible person I am for hating it. I still did get a little hate when I told my best friends about. I will never watch it again or put myself through that sort of torture.

    Before the Sorting Hat

    Before the Sorting Hat

    Now, growing up I hated reading. It took a lot of effort on my parents side to get me to read anything. My sisters were busy reading all sorts of books from Nancy Drew to Babysitters club. I did not enjoy the same pass time, instead I was busy building houses for my toys and creating stories for myself. It was not long before my sisters had started the Harry Potter phase. I was indifferent to the books. Then, I saw Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone movie and I knew I had to read the books once my oldest sister commented "The book was so much better". I read the Harry Potter book and it changed my life. So, I have decided to write a character analysis on Harry Potter himself.
