Viewers of ‘The Young and the Restless’ are overwhelmingly disappointed with the current storyline surrounding Abby Newman. Most fans find the entire situation bizarre.

Mariah decides to become Abby's surrogate and they write her husband out of the storyline and have her living alone in the Chancellor mansion. Chance writes a letter telling his wife to go ahead and proceed with having a child through a sperm donor, and then Nina says she is excited about becoming a grandmother.

What Really Happened on WandaVision?
So, fans, we're down to one episode left of the Disney + series and this eighth and exciting episode ended with more of a cliffhanger than any of the previous episodes. At the end of the episode, we finally understand what really happened in the post Endgame world we were left with and how Vision came to be back in Westview. We know now, that Agatha Harkness has been manipulating things behind the scenes but it certainly doesn't look like she is the only one. Wanda has done a fair amount of manipulating along the way, creating a world that her grieving, fractured and traumatized mind could live within, finding a sort of peace after everything we knew she had gone through. So let's take a look at what we've learned.
The Push by Ashley Audrain
The Push is not usually the kind of book that I reach for. However, that being said, I am very glad I grabbed this book. It is a candid book; you see moments where the main character, Blythe, is at her best, but many parts of the book detail her struggles adjusting to life and dealing with grief. This book is a very emotional read, and, because of this, I will warn that this book is not for everyone. If you are wanting something lighthearted with a happy ending, do not read this book.
Cheering for Polygamy
I know what you're thinking, this posed pic above MUST have been taken on the set of the greatest show on earth, The Bachelor. Nopeities, it's just a very cringeworthy photo from a millionty years ago, capturing a gorgeous sunset in Sydney, Australia, but mostly our cutting-edge narcissism. I should add that none of my friends are actually polygamous (what a bunch of prudes).
If This Then That: Pretty Woman
Indecent proposal If you love “Indecent Proposal” another great movie you must see pretty woman. Woody Allen convinced his wife to sleep with a wealthy businessman and he also loss the woman he loved the most. The movies are similar but in my opinion “Pretty Woman” is the best romance movie for how it changed the general public’s view on sex workers and it made sex workers understandable and lovable. While indecent proposal was darker it did not make it a better film in my opinion. But it had all the variables to create the classic romance story that it is.
A Sense of Balance
Recently, I have been watching the ‘Cobra Kai’ series on Netflix and while I was never really a huge fan of the Karate Kid movie series, I have really taken a liking to this TV series featuring the same characters with some new ones over 35 years later. There are a lot of great things about this particular popular series such as the 80s music and influence, the acting, the fight choreography among other positives that make you root for each character for different reasons. However, my favorite thing about the series is the life lesson that is not only applicable to the martial art of Karate but to someone’s life in general.
11 Nigerian Celebrities Still Alive and Well Past 90 Years.
1930 doesn't mean dead. And I too count myself among the school of people who do this: most times, when we hear that a person was born in 1930 or 1929 or any year before that, our brains immediately assume that the person is dead.

A Filmmaker's Guide to: Michael Douglas
In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we’re actually going to be learning about literature and film together. I understand that many of you are sitting in university during difficult times and finding it increasingly hard to study and I understand that many of you who are not at university or not planning on it are possibly stuck of what to do, need a break or even need to catch up on learning film before you get to the next level. This guide will be brief but will also contain: new vocabulary, concepts and theories, films to watch and we will be exploring something taboo until now in the ‘filmmaker’s guide’ - academia (abyss opens). Each article will explore a different concept of film, philosophy, literature or bibliography/filmography etc. in order to give you something new to learn each time we see each other. You can use some of the words amongst family and friends to sound clever or you can get back to me (email in bio) and tell me how you’re doing. So, strap in and prepare for the filmmaker’s guide to film studies because it is going to be one wild ride.
Book Review: "The Wake" by Vikki Patis
Thrillers are some of my favourite books to sit there and read for hours on end. They contain engrossing stories with many twists and turns, mixed up identities and strange happenings that would cause the nature of families and friendships within the novels to collapse. I love reading about these secrets that people keep from each other that only come out when they are forced out, found out or happen in a mysterious way to be pulled out during a tense moment. I have to say, this book contains all the logic and tension of the thriller that you love but then, there is a lot more to it than that. There is so much more to the book than that. It is written brilliantly and in a style that is consistent with multiple perspectives. It is an incredible work.
Review: The Queen's Gambit
I use to play chess in elementary school like really played it. I was in a competitive chess club, and as far as I knew I could bet just about anyone. However, over the years I played less, and overall I am a terrible chess player now. I still love to play, whenever I get the chance of course. This brings me to the show “The Queen’s Gambit”. While I had lost nearly all the knowledge I had possessed in the realm of chess, this show definitely went overboard and taught us all a bit of something about that board.
