Before you begin reading this I need you to know that this is not an article supporting this movement. Many people may find it unusual but keep reading to find out why I am not a proud follower of this movement.

What is #iammorethanadistraction

It is a movement that a group of Middle School girls have started because they feel that the dress code is sexist or “slut-shaming” them. They believe that the boys need more dress code rules and that they focus on the girls too much when it comes to this particular situation. There was a recent incident where a school played a scene from the movie Pretty Women that was meant to encourage the girls to follow dress code. Many students and parents to offense to the video. I think it was a good example showing you that you will be seen the way you dress.

Why I don’t support #iammorethanadistraction

Everyone hates dress code, especially girls. When I was in highschool I use to break dress code all the time and I had to dodge the administration all day. You will never win the dress code battle. You are only in school for 6 hours so just follow dress code, it is only put in place to make the learning environment more appropriate.I am all for young people fighting for what they believe in but fighting to wear booty shorts or crop tops in school is just pointless.  What these young girls are really upset with is the fact that they can’t wear yoga pants, if you’re not doing yoga then don’t wear yoga pants. Yoga pants are revealing, they make your butt look awfully large. Fight for a cause that will make a difference in your education such as new books, new computers, even better cafeteria food. There are many alternatives to yoga pants for example; jogger, harem pants, and linen pants, not only are these cuter than yoga pants but they are more comfortable. Google image yoga pants and that will clearly explain why yoga pants are not appropriate for school.

Yoga Pants: They aren’t even that cute

Harem Pants

Linen Pants

 

Joggers

Bullying Awareness Month


bullyingOctober is Bullying Awareness Month

Kids who are bullied:

Bullying is a very serious problem it can cause depression and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, changes in sleep and eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy. These problems might not go away but rather follow them into their adulthood and have an effect on them for the rest of their life. Bullying can affect a person’s performance in school because they skip school or drop out to get away from the bullying. These situations may not seem serious to some but this is affecting the wellbeing of our younger generation and bullying can eventually lead up to the tragedy of suicide. When kids who are 10,11, or 12 want to take their own lives then there is a serious problem.

Kids who bully:

Not only do we need to help the kids who are getting bullied but also the bullies. Some know better and some don’t know what they are doing is wrong and we need to let them know that what they are doing is not ok.The kids who are doing the bullying are also affected by their behavior and they to will be affected into there adulthood and possibly become drug users and abuse alcohol. Bullies get in many fights, they vandalize properties and dropout of school. They too are victims of the behaviors.

Types of bullying:

Bullying is not only psychical behaviors such as fighting and hitting but it is verbal, name calling and gossiping about a person. Verbal bullying can cause as much pain as a black eye. Social Media has opened a new window for bullying, kids are getting attacked online; this is referred to as cyberbullying. A good movie to watch on Netflix about this topic is Cyberbully starring Emily Osment.

How to get involved in Bullying Awareness Month:

1. October 22 is #UNITYDAY: Wear orange on this day to show your support. You can get an official PACER’S Unity Day shirt at https://www.booster.com/unityday all proceeds will go to the National Bullying Prevention Center. If you order your shirt by October 6th then you will receive it before Unity Day.

 

2. Have discussions with younger friends,younger relatives, or peers you may have. Ask them if they are getting bullied or have they witnesses someone being bullied. If they answer yes to any of these question you should take the necessary steps to contact the school or if it is going on in their neighborhood then you should contact the parents. The following link has printable handouts to help you notify a school about bullying and the steps that it will take to help the bullying stop: http://www.pacer.org/bullying/resources/publications/ 

3. Wear an orange ribbon throughout the month to show people you support Bullying Awareness.

506 Eats

I recently went to a restaurant called The Mill with my family. It is a new restaurant in Tega Cay, SC. I originally wanted Taco Bell but somehow I ended up at The Mill. The customer service was amazing. My younger sister didn’t like what she ordered and the manager came over and asked if she wanted to order something new. I can’t remember his name but he was super sweet! If you ever find yourself in the south Charlotte area or Rock Hill,SC area you should check it out. If you go to The Mill tell me about your experience using #506Eats

I ordered Fetichini Alfredo. It was amazing and they give you large serving so I had leftovers for later that night. It came with a wonderful salad and I got what I usually get with salad Blue Cheese dressing. I only drink water when I go out so that’s what I ordered.

TV Obsessed!

The summer for me was all about Netflix and Hulu Plus. Pretty much everybody has a membership for one or the other and if you don’t then you are missing out on life. You can get a free trial for both of these. If you watch YouTube videos lots of You Tubers have codes for you to get a free trial. This summer I totally binged watch about 5 shows this summer and I am proud of that because every moment was memorable. Once I sat down and watched one episode I just couldn’t stop, but everyone who has either Netflix or Hulu Plus has the same problem. Am I right? or Am I right?

Once Upon a Time

This is a show on abc, when it first came out I fell in love with it but I was in high school then and I had no time to watch it. I have been watching it bits at a time on Netflix for the past year. But this summer I obviously binged watched it and watched all 3 seasons. This show takes fairy tales and puts a modern twist on then. Peter Pan is evil, Snow White was a warrior, and Princess Belle fell in love with Rumpelstiltskin. I don’t want to spoil the show so I won’t say anymore. This is a fairytail show for adults.

Misfits

This show is a Hulu Plus original, and I absolutely love it. Its about these 5 teenagers who are doing community service together and a storm comes and gives them super powers. They seem to always kill people and then cover it up. They all hate each other at the beginning and then they eventually become best of friends, but I guess after murdering multiple people together you will become friends. There powers are being invisible, immortality, rewinding time, reading peoples thought, and a sexual attraction power. What makes there powers so unique is that their power reflects who they are as a person. This show is for the older crowd I will have to say Junior year in high school and older can watch this. There is mild nudity and lots of cursing. This is only on Hulu, I believe there are over 4 seasons so it will be perfect for binge watching.

The Mindy Project

There is only one word to describe this show, Hilarious. The main characters name is Mindy, obviously but she is a doctor and is very outspoken, if she thinks it then she says it. He two co-stars are just as funny, the three of them make up the funniest doctors office. This doctors office definitely mixes personal and business together, which is never good. Not only do you laugh but you just might cry sometimes, but that doesn’t last long because Mindy always breaks the tension in the room. This is available on Netflix, there is currently only a few season but it should be starting back up on TV soon.

Orange is the New Black

This show has been getting a lot of love from the press and its fans. It is about a women name Piper who ends up in jail for a love affair she had in college with another women who was a drug dealer. She definitely did not belong there but she eventually adjusted to the life in prison. There is relationships between guards and inmates, relationships between inmates, there is always the fight to be the “big dogs” in prison, and smuggling things from outside of the prison into the prison. This is a Netflix original so it is only available their. This show is definitely for people 18 and older. There is lots of nudity and harsh language. I wouldn’t even watch this show when kids around unless you know they can’t hear it.

Being Mary Jane

This show takes a look into a talk shows host life name Mary Jane. She has an affair with a  married man, unknowingly at fist but when she finds out she is already in love. Her ongoing drama in her love life is overwhelming for her, but it doesn’t end there, her family also brings drama in her life. None of her siblings work and they are living with there parents, and their mother has cancer. Her niece keeps having kids and the baby daddy/boyfriend is cheating on her and getting other girls pregnant. She goes though all this but somehow has the best talk show in the nation. This show is for 18 and up, the content is to mature for younger kids.

Fall into September (The Blazer)

The fall trend of the day is the blazer. The blazer is an accessory that is very fun, you can have an all black outfit and a purple blazer to give it a splash of color. Like almost every fashion item the blazer can be dressed down or an outfit for the office. You can pair your blazer with a nice scarf, a statement necklace, or pretty much anything. It’s all about creativity and being yourself.

Use the hashtag #fallintosep if you find yourself wearing a blazer.

Fall into September (Oxford Shoes)

The fall trend of the day is oxford shoes. Everyone loves oxford shoes they are also a trend that was popular this summer just as the knee high socks; check out that post if you haven’t already read it. Oxford shoes are very lightweight and have many designs that will easily match with almost any outfit. My personal favorite pair of oxfords are the ones that are brown and the bottom of the shoe usually has a pop of color.

Use the hashtag #fallintosep if you find yourself wearing a pair of oxfords.
