My Thoughts On Instagram Removing The ‘Like’ Feature?

Hello all,

Happy Thursday! It is unlike me to post a blog post on a Thursday. However, I thought I would just do a stream-of consciousness and blog about the new update that was introduced for trial in Australia this morning. It has been quite a contentious update which has had many people either wanting it gone as soon as possible or wanting it to become a permanent feature. My thoughts are quite mixed and I want to cover as many bases as possible in this post and hope I can do just that.

Movie & TV Wrap-up: June 2019

Today I am coming to you with my movie and TV wrap-up for June 2019, which is about a week behind us at this point. The reason I am writing this post so late in the next month is because as you probably saw, I was in New Zealand from the 22nd of June to the 5th July! Onto the movies and TV shows though. This past month was a great month for the big and small screen, which produced some really engaging, emotionally powerful and fun productions! It was definitely far better than last months catastrophe-of-a-month. I won’t ramble on about my pointless generalised opinions though – instead I will delve right into the juicy opinions on this months best and worst of film and TV.

The Playlist Of My Life

Maybe it’s just me, but does anyone else love going through all the ‘playlist of my life’ videos on Teen Vogue’s Youtube? Well, for quite some time now they have been my go-too videos to watch when I am bored. I think you can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they listen too, and so seeing which artists like similar music to me is always interesting, as is finding out which artists listen to music that is completely opposite to my own. Basically, if you have not seen the videos, they have a celebrity guest who creates a playlist of ten songs that represent their life, both past or present. Some songs have surface level meanings to the artist, while other artists have songs that have much deeper meaning to them. Either way, I think discussing aspects of your life as represented my songs is a really great idea and I thought what better way to continue the trend than by creating my own ‘playlist of my life.’ Continue reading “The Playlist Of My Life”

Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry

Music. The way we communicate our deepest emotions in a small but impactful way. This is probably the most accessible and common form that we see ourselves represented on a daily basis; through song. Music manifests countless emotions through lyrics and composition, which will resonate and affect each person in a different way, depending on their own set of circumstances at that current point in time. The songs I have compiled for this blog post are those which seek to bring out an emotional response of sadness or reflection upon events or emotions that one may come across in life. These songs present themes that are very real, relevant and relatable. Continue reading “Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry”

How Sending Compliments To 125 Friends Changed Me!

As you read the title of this piece you may be wondering why exactly I decided to undergo this activity. It was pretty simple, all you have to do is look at the statistics. If you are reading this as an Australian teenager aged between 18-24, you are now in the age bracket that has the highest probability of possessing a mental heath problem. So much so, that 1 in 5 adolescence are said to be affected by mental health issues (Black Dog Institute). It doesn’t take an expert to acknowledge that those statistics are extremely alarming. In addition, that statistic is likely to be even higher if you come from a community or group that is actively or formerly discriminated against. For example, Indigenous Australians. Men’s mental health is also significantly underrepresented in media, due to a very low percentage of men actually speaking up due to a number of reasons. In turn, leading to a very toxic cyclical pattern that is difficult to break.  However, every individual has their own set of circumstances and mental heath is not discriminatory, and can affect absolutely anyone no matter the status, age, colour, creed or ethnicity.
