2021 is finally here and it has been a long time coming. Last year taught me many things, mostly through hardship, but the great thing is that even the worst moments in our lives can pave the way for something better. This year, I plan to go into it with a positive mindset, and what better way to do that than with the help of my favorite book series. Because New Year's resolutions would be nothing without some old friends.
Tonight RuPaul's Drag Race season 13 premieres and fans of the show have been bubbling about it and the pre-premiere content we've gotten so far. On the RuPaul's Drag Race YouTube channel we got to meet the queens and get a ten minute clip of the very first episode of the season. And from what we've seen, this season is going to be one that goes down in Drag Race Herstory.
People have always had mixed feelings about Glee and the music from the show, but for me, Glee was one of the simple pleasures that got me through 2020. Working and doing school from home gave me a lot more free time and Glee and its music was there to motivate me, distract me, and give me something to smile about when almost nothing else did.
In the U.S., bullying is a big problem in schools. Kids across the country get bullied for an unlimited number of reasons: not wearing the right clothes, having speech impediments, being a girl that's too masculine or a boy that's too feminine, and unfortunately as long as we're all human, bullying will always occur at some level. But while all bullying is bad, not all bullying holds the same weight because the implications of all forms of bullying are not the same. And for (Black) African kids in particular, school can be the breeding ground for a lifelong battle against xenophobia.
In the last few weeks or so, my views on Vocal have increased significantly. The biggest reason for this is that I have learned a lot in that time and it has made me a better content creator. But learning does come with a price and for me, that price was failing... quite a few times. But just because I had to fail to become better doesn't mean that you have to. So here are some things I've learned from my least viewed stories so that you can learn without having to experience it firsthand.
Every year around this time, the frenzy over what gifts to give our loved ones consumes us for a few days to a few weeks. We're always looking to get the latest gadgets or the newest shoes that will eventually wear away with time. But there are certain things that don't fade that easily and that is the experiences that come with it. This year, don't just give gifts to the people you care about; give experiences. And what better way to gauge the perfect experience to give this year than looking to the shows that your loved ones have been binge watching all year long? Open up their Netflix profile and take a peek at what shows they've been using to escape 2020 with to get them the best and most unique gift they've ever received.

Let's be honest, there wasn't much that 2020 had to offer us. Between $1200 stimulus checks to spread over nine months (if you live in the U.S.), a never-ending presidential election, a global pandemic in the form of a virus, and a global pandemic in the form of police brutality, 2020 felt like falling down on a trampoline while everyone else just keeps jumping.
