Why We Broke Up

I just started reading this is book and it's like nothing I've read before. I had never experienced a character that was so into movies (Min, the main character). It's very different from the last book I read ,Vanishing Girls, that I loved, but it's still relatable and fun. Also I really appreciate the drawings because they make the book come to life. 
 The new word I discovered is entwine. This word is in the box and it means two things that are twisted around each other. 

An interview with Troye Sivan

Troye Sivan is one of my favorite musicians ever. His new album Blue Neighborhood is amazing, and I can listen to it non-stop all day. This interview gives you a little bit of behind the scenes of his life and his projects. You can learn more about his ideas and the creative process behind his work (which I'm a big fan of). I think that because he puts so much on the internet we think we know everything about him, but this kind of interviews prove that there's still a lot more to know. And that's exciting. 

The new word I discovered was nuanced. That means a subtle difference in expression. And this word is used for describing what they will be asking Troye about.

I love how this video is suppose to help you detect lies others tell you. But I guess I'm the only one that while watching this video is taking notes so I can tell better lies. I'm not a frequent liar but I must confess sometimes I have to lie so I don't hurt others feelings or so I don't make a fool of myself. One word I didn't understand was physiology. It means the organic functions in an organism. They used this word while saying that maybe telling lies can produce physiological changes. 


I think one teen movie classic is Clueless. It's funny and you can watch it at any time and you will instantly cheer up. I love seeing the fashion on this movie, it gives me so much inspiration for my outfits. I was watching this movie for the 15h time and while i was watching itI realize theres a word I didn't understand. It was swoon. And it means to ve overwhelmed with joy.  Looking it further I found the exact quote of the movie where they mention it. So enjoy:

Cher Horowitz: So okay, I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair - ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we're expected to swoon? I don't think so.

The representation project

I think this video covers a very important point that at this point is really relevant. I don't know why only at this time of history this has been brought up, but gender stereotypes are a real problem. And we need to change that. And that's why I really appreciate celebrities that support this campaign to help bring awareness. And as a new generation we, the young people, need to help to make a difference in the world and make a change. A word I didn't understand was pledge. It means a binding promise.

Species that are Close to Extinction

It's always sad to hear about new animals that are close to extinction. But I think this articles are necessary to bring awareness to the problem. One of the animals they mention is the black-footed cat. This is a cat that lives on the wild life, but it's in danger. The word I didn't understand was cunning. It means adeptness in performance. And they use this word when they are saying what things are not leading this cat to extinction.



Forever young?

This article talks about the new idea of transferring your consciousness to an artificial body so you could live forever. I think that years ago I would be fascinated with the idea. But now I'm not thrilled. This is because, on a Netflix series called Hemlock Grove Dr. Johaan Pryce does exactly this. And at the end the results were not good. And you can say that was totally fiction, but really who knows what would happen.  I guess we could find out on the future. 

The word I didn't understand is cryogenically. It means that it's suitable to cryogenic storage that relates to low temperature. They use this word to describe how they would storage your brain.
