The Little Mermaid (2023)
There are many people who have shown dislike after the release of the teaser trailer for the new live-action “The Little Mermaid” movie that is set to come out next year. There are also many others that believe the only problem those people have with the trailer is the skin color of the main character. From what I have seen and read, that is not the issue at all.
CHEESE! Everything tastes better with cheese, doesn't matter what it is. Any and every type of cheese. Gouda? You got it! Pepper jack? Count me in! While we're at it, throw some cheese in with the ramen noodles. Who doesn't love getting cheese dip from a Mexican restaurant? Or adding sour cream to their tacos?
When you think of addiction you probably think of drug addicts, alcoholics, or maybe even shopaholics. We've all heard of chocoholics, and people with gambling addictions. There have even been people accused of being addicted to phones and technology. But what about the less common addictions, the things that may seem slightly abnormal or simply like a random obsession? Some say addiction is a disease; I say it's a normal part of life. Everyone has an addiction, just not everyone realizes it or is willing to admit to it.
It started just like any other typical day of junior high school. I woke up, ate breakfast, got dressed, and trudged out the door to make my way to the bus stop a couple of blocks away. Of course I was tired and lazy so instead of taking the long way around on the road I decided to cut through the neighbor's yards to cut my walk in half.
It's the same nightmare that has visited me every night for as long as I can remember. I'm running through the woods, away from my past. I constantly look behind me to see if it's catching up with me, so I don't see the all-encompassing darkness that waits beyond and beneath me. I run straight into it, and then I fall. It's the same fall I make every night, but somehow it's always different. There's a different scene playing on the darkened walls that surround me: sometimes there are images from my past, at other times, there are images from a horrible future that I could take part in, and the worst is when there are no images glancing back at me, only the immense darkness. I scream as loud as I can, but there is no one to hear me, no one to help me, no one to catch me as I fall to the gruesome death that I know is to follow because I have seen it a thousand times before. When I finally hit the bottom, I know that something has gone differently than it usually does. I know this because I do not recognize what I have hit; my bod has been jerked but not broken. I do not wake up suddenly, but instead, stay in the nightmare. As I open my eyes, I immediately understand what has gone so astray. I did not recognize it simply because it has not ever happened before. I have been caught. Somehow, against all odds, my love has managed to enter into my dream and save me. I look around and see that the darkness has lifted and the sun is beginning to rise. My eyes return to him as I search for answers, and what I find in the depths of his eyes is so much more than I could have ever hoped for. There I witness the unspoken promise that he will always be there to catch me when I fall. The last thing I feel before I wake up is his soft, sweet lips pressed gently to mine, representing our eternal bond, and more importantly, our everlasting love for one another.
To Bra or Not To Bra
Women as a collective have come a long way since the early 1900s. However, there are still many challenges that we may face in the day to day of our lives. While it is claimed that we have equal rights with men, there are still those who will treat us differently and who have different expectations from our gender.
