Last season on “Once Upon A Time” they mentioned that Peter Pan was evil. I did not like that at all. I could not imagine how that would work. I kept telling myself that Peter Pan isn’t evil. It just doesn’t make sense. I was wrong. Every new episode of “Once” makes me love Peter Pan even more. Robbie Kay makes an amazing Peter Pan. He brings so much to the character and now I don’t mind that Peter is an evil boy. Robbie is the most perfect Peter Pan ever. Even better than Jeremy Sumpter in the 2003 movie. And let’s face it, we all loved Jeremy and thought he was super hot. Also, as a side note, I love that the lost boys act like the boys from Lord of the Flies.
In my computer science class we have a forum called Piazza where we can post questions. Well today some of my classmates decided to get a little weird. They were apparently looking for me during lecture. Very weird. I don’t even know these people. Here is what they posted.
P.S. I was in the middle of finding inspiration for a novel I’m writing when they started posting these things.
High waisted shorts and a crop top.
This past weekend Disney Channel premiered their latest DCOM, Teen Beach Movie. I did not have very high expectations for this movie. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
This movie is about 2 surfers who end up in a 1960′s musical called Wet Side Story (obviously a beach themed West Side Story) about a rivalry between surfers and bikers.
What I really loved about this movie was the messages it had. It showed that girls shouldn’t have to dress for boys; they should dress for themselves. It also showed that girls can be just as tough as boys, and that you should follow your heart and do what you love.
The musical numbers where not as great as High School Musical, but still fun. The costumes were amazing. I loved everything the cast wore.
Overall Disney Channel really did a great job with this movie. It made fun of the 1960′s, but still managed to provide a positive message for kids. Also, the dedication to Annette Funicello was just so perf. It’s nice to see Disney pay a tribute to one of their most famous mouseketeers.
During my freshman year of high school, the guy I liked once asked me who I liked. It was totally random and weird. What didn’t occur to me then was the fact that he had theories on who I liked, which is really weird. This guy did not like me in any way and thought I was weird. Well having theories on who a random nerdy girl likes is weird too. Like do you have that much time on your hands? Does this really bug you that much? Another weird thing, he only asked me that one day.
It’s been well over a week since I finished reading The Catcher in the Rye and I have to say I really enjoyed it. At first I didn’t know what to think, but after a great deal of reflection I loved it.
I can relate to Holden so much. The part about the glass cases in the museum and how he wishes he could stick things in a glass case is so true. I often wish I could put my freshmen year in a glass case to keep forever. There was another part where he expressed a desire to go to a place where it was sunny and I totally agreed with that too. You can get depressed when it’s not sunny. Holden is a true depiction of a teenager and that’s what I loved about this book. Holden Caulfield is awesome!
I was reading over past posts of mine and I realized that I quite like them. I used to not like my blog that much, but now I see something different. It’s interesting and I definitely see myself in it. It reflects who I am as a person. I’m happy about that.
The only thing I dislike is the fact that I haven’t been blogging much. But other than that, I like it.
Famous fashion designer, Kate Spade, has a new fashion line called Saturday. It features clothes, accessories and more at cheaper prices than her original brand. This line is so awesome.

It’s really sad. They spell it “exsplain.” These are college bound Seniors. I blame it on their lack of reading. Most everyone in my class hates reading. That’s even more sad.
