Hoot or Boo


  • Diversity in Hollywood
    • In recent movies and shows there has been a lot of racial diversity within the actors in breakout roles, and I am 100% here for it. A movie featuring many talented Asian actors was “Crazy Rich Asians.” This cast was amazingly talented. With actors from Constance Wu to Henry Golding to Awkwafina, this almost entirely Asian cast inspired millions of people all across the world. Another role that featured a diverse cast and touched on racial topics was “BlacKkKlansman”. This movie featured John David Washington, another breakout star, as the main character in the movie as her infiltrates the KKK. He, among his supporting actors, do an amazing job at touching the sensitive subject of race in the 1970’s and how it relates to present day. As a girl who is only white herself, I am proud of Hollywood finally portraying all races in mainstream and popular culture to set as role models for my peers.
  • Fall
    • Finally! The best time of the year is here! Fall is, without a doubt, THE best season of the entire year. With the slight drop in temperature, we can all bust out of nice and cozy sweaters and fuzzy socks and just be comfy all day long. With fall also comes the delightful change in our scenery as the leaves change from a dull and boring green to bright yellows and reds and oranges. But, the absolute best thing about fall is Halloween. As quite possibly the best holiday in the year, Halloween offers a season full of scary movies and delicious Halloween treats.



  • Rain
    • The amount of rain we have had in the NOVA area this past year has been absolutely outrageous. Sure, dancing in the rain can be pleasant for a short amount of time, but I personally do not want to dance in the rain every single day! Also the effect of rain are not very nice either. Frizzy hair, oily skin, and soaked clothes are just the beginnings of the repercussions of the disastrous rain. Also, not to mention the dangers of all this rain! With the abundance of rain tree are falling and people are getting into car wrecks due to lack of visibility. So, come on Mother Nature, can’t you give us a break?
  • Pumpkin Spice Lattes
    • Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Do I even need to explain myself on this one? Sure, a cute little PSL here and there can’t hurt, but the madness must stop. The PSL is literally inescapable. Nowadays there are PSL granola bars, Mini Wheats, ice cream, toothpaste, Pepto-Bismol, and the list goes on and on and on. The one that shocks me the most is PSL toilet paper. Who needs PSL toilet paper? Besides that the craze for PSL everything has overcome our daily life during the fall season and has become way too overwhelming. Also, to be honest, the PSL isn’t really even that good.
