  • Valentines day... Not just for romantic loved ones



    As I scrolled through my Instagram feed on Valentine's Day last year, I was bombarded with images of couples gingerly hugging one another, screenshots of sweet text messages, and pictures of flowers and cards from loved ones. But the remaining images, however, were depressing, captioned with such phrases as "Forever alone." Messages from the mass media have compelled us to feel that having a boyfriend or girlfriend is a necessity to life that will make us content and without which we will be lonely and miserable. This, however, is a complete myth. Here is how and why to stay positive as a single person on Valentine's Day!

    There is immense societal pressure put on Valentine's Day. People tend to have a sort of insecurity if they are single on this holiday. More importantly, restaurants, greeting card companies, flower shops, and department stores have caught on to this and taken advantage of it. Meticulous planning goes into Valentine's Day to make people feel that Valentine's Day is a necessity. They overwhelm customers with powerful displays that persuade people into making Valentine's Day a bigger production than it needs to, eventually luring them into spending money unnecessarily. In other words, Valentine's Day has turned into a huge marketing scheme! Why else would we suddenly feel the need to show affection for people on this particular day? This is all due to the commercialization of Valentine's Day. I encourage you not to give license to these negative messages.

    And since when did Valentine's Day become all about romantic love? Instead of moping, go out with your friends or hang out with your family. You have many people that care about and love you. So stay positive and have an amazing Valentine's Day!

    Here are five fun things to do on Valentine's Day:
    Funny movie
    Stay home and have a girls night ( do nails, order delivery and watch a chick flick)
    Take your family or a big group of friends to a cool museum such as the Griffith Observatory
    Comedy club
    Girls only game night (board games or buNCO) w lots of snacks- each person brings a diff snack

  • Watch our third issue cover, Nolan Gerard Funk in the new movie Riddick!

    Watch Nolan Gerard Funk from Awkward, and Glee like you've never seen him before, in a SciFi thriller starring Vin Diesel! Nolan plays the character "Luna". Luna is part of a mercenary team that wants to capture Riddick who is on a distant planet, with a huge bounty for his head in a box..! No matter what role Nolan plays, he always captures the character and manages to keep himself versatile.


    Riddick is the third movie in the trilogy. If you aren't caught up with it,

    you should start watching Pitch Black, & then The Chronicles of Riddick!

    Here's the Plot!

    Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction. Written by Shock Till You Drop

    The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy. Written by Universal Pictures

    Riddick is alone on a desert planet, when he sees a ship land in the distance. The crew of bounty hunters confronts, and claim they will collect on his now-doubled bounty. After losing member after member, Riddick is eventually brought to the ship. Right as they are about to cut off his head, they hear a noise outside of the ship. Riddick tells them it is too late, and we see creatures rising from the now flooding landscape. Written by The Roc
