I lost my dog seven months ago. He passed away of pulmonary hypertension. It was quick, and he didn't suffer, but I have. He was 13 and his name was Max. He taught me a lot about grief, something that up until seven months ago, I had never experienced before. No matter how much others tell you about it, no matter what you think you understand about grief, if you've never experienced it, you'll never fully understand it. I write this to help out as best I can, because as you grieve you don't know where to turn. This is the top five things about grief that surprised me.
We all love Drag, and if you know anything about Drag, you know about UNHhhh. The show where they talk about whatever they want, because it is their show, and not yours. Trixie and Katya are one of the funniest drag queens in the business if you ask me, especially in their show UNHhhh. Here is my list of my top 5 UNHhhh episodes because I feel like they deserve their on Top 5 Listicle. I'm leaving out the Trixie and Katya show because while it was funny, it wasn't UNHhhh, and I think we can all agree on that.
I feel like Vocal is a great and fun platform for writers who don't want to put in the expense of building a whole blog. That can cost money and time and the money is not guaranteed. Here at Vocal, we get to express ourselves and write about a ton of things we want to write. We make a little money with our views, and tips are offered if people really like what we write. Now, I'll admit I haven't made too much money on here yet, but I have figured out a lot of things that would make this platform even better for all of us. These are all suggestions that I have come up with as I've explored the site and written on here.
WARNING: SPOILERSTrust me, I also got on to the bandwagon of assuming the worst of Insatiable. I saw the trailer and the way it was edited, it really looked like a show that would be about a "skinny is magic" redemption story with a few crazy antics. Nothing new. Nothing special. And harmful to girls and their body image. I had pretty much decided that I wasn't going to watch it. Because while I have not been an obese person, I have definitely struggled with my weight and body image. I dieted at 17 and lost twenty pounds (went from 145 to 125), and some of those things I still carry with me. I experience meal guilt and weight guilt often. I didn't want to have another "skinny is magic" story in my head.
The hottest topic in true crime right now is Ted Bundy. He's everywhere. Netflix's new documentary Conversations With A Killer and the upcoming movie starring Zac Efron have brought one of the craziest cases from the 70s in the forefront of our minds. He's long since been dead, a terrible man met the fate he deserved in 1989, but his influence is still seen to this day. That's why he's still a hot topic. A handsome, educated man, who had a relatively normal childhood, was killing women. He killed them one after the other and he would've never stopped if he had been caught.
