Editorials are very important at the time to see the opinions of some people, who knows about the issue they are writing about. It talks about social issues that are very important to us. Express the point of view of people who really knows about the subject of the theme in that Editorial. At this moment, I had read 4 different ones, and I'm going to talk about which one I think its
the most well written. I had read the following editorials: A Leap for Equality, Texas Women and Abortion Rights, 'Por los
130,000 <2><2><2>menores' and Sex Traficking in India. The one I like the most is A Leap for Equality. 2>2>
<2><2>I picked that one, because I think that is a very important issue on our society that has to be done, for the good of all the citizens. Actually, I like the structure that he used to explain his point of view, and the real facts. This editorial is about the same sex marriage in the United States. It explains how many states have been legislating about same-sex marriage and how others states made a poputar vote accepting it in their states. Also, it explains how the Supreme Court made unconstitutional the "DOMA ACT", and how this action will provide to the court the change to restrict all the restrictions agains the LGBTT community. 2>2>
About the author, I think he was well informed because he used to mention the right number of states that had approved the same-sex marriage, he offered us real facts. This part is very important in a editorial because if you make something fake, it could destroy your career as a journalist.
My favorite part of that editorial is when he explained how the Supreme Court refuse the DOMA ACT, because I think as a pre-law student is a huge door to allow same-sex marriage in the Federal Goverment.
Some quotes I like about the editorial are:
"In a breakthrough beyond the marriage issue, the Senate has just approved theEmployment Non-Discrimination Act, a long-sought measure to outlaw employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity."
"The measure, ending a two-decade legal and political battle, caps a remarkable year of progress toward ensuring the basic civil rights of gay Americans."
The language used at this editorial I think that is very informative. The writes doesnt meant to be rude, or offensive. He is just informing what have happened, and how could be the future of the LGBTT from now. Is very easy to read, and you can understand everything from the start. And also, I find him passionate about it, because of his way to feel that this is not the end, but we have a lot more to seek. This showed me that he is clearly looking for that results that all the LGBTT Community will love to enjoy in a future. 2><2>

What I think that makes different this list is that there's somethings that affects our society at all, and some of them affects me just because of my personality, or just me being sometimes bitchy. Between the lists I have to say that they are very common things that have to be in how people is as a person. They are different because there's something in the personal list that I know I should work on it, because its not a big issue. What makes different the social ones is that those are things that really affects our life in our society directly.
One of the social problem that really pisses me off is the LGBTT haters. I really feel bad when I heard such things against us, more when it comes from people that are supposed to be leaders in our society. The second one is when someone who is fat, talks about someone else's weight. Really? Have you seen yourself in a mirror? Get a grip, get a life and get over it. People looks how they want, or they believe that they are right. If they feel comfortable with their body, just relax. Work on yours. One of my personal is when someone try to hit me on my neck. I hate that. It pisses me of to hell. It makes me feel that I dont trust people because of that. But, after all this is something that we all should work on together, because isn't about the government or the people who abuse a kid, is about how we as a society work to do `things better in our values, and lifestyles.
I'm a music lover. I think that music moves my life. It inspires me to go to the gym, to class, and to be someone in life. As a dancer, music is part of my life. Since I remember, I heard every kind of music except Rock or Heavy Metal. But, generally I love to hear POP Music, in English. I love Britney Spears, Madonna, Niki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga (at her begging), and much more others. I just love the way they sing, and how the rhythm of the POP music makes me hear at them.
Niki Minaj could be known as a silly singer, a copy of another singers. I have to say that she have something special, and different that makes me love every song of her. I know that most of her song are rapping, and the beats never ends but this songs have a meaning behind that is a must to know. I discovered thanks to a classmate, that Niki Minaj has multiple personality disorder. Some of those alter ego are Young Money, The Harajuku Barbie, Martha Zolanski, Niki The Boss, and a lot more.
The song I chose was "Moment 4 Life". This song represents a lot of my life, and what I think about it too. I didn't know about this music, but a friend told me a meaning of it that represents a lot for both of us. We did some life workshop, and there's is a part that is the heart of the journey that represents exactly what this lyrics says. It starts with the feeling that you feel after you do this weekend. You feel, literally, that you are flying and you know the purpose of life and how important is life. It also explain that you have some emotional vampires who tries to get out of your way, trying to get you out of your happiness and the control of your life. I found that very important, because we are surrounded by people like that. Everyday there's people trying to put you down, and getting you out of your dreams, and goals. Finally, she tries to explain how she have grown and that Hollywood couldn't change her. This part let us know that we have to be proud of who we are, and where we came from.
The name of this song, "Moment 4 Life", represents her desires to stay feeling how she is feeling right now: ALIVE. She feels alive, because she discovered how beautiful life could be, just if you desired. And actually, it's very interesting that she put in the name of the song "4 Life", that represent something about the life workshop I did. Those who did it, we all know what it means. After all, that's the reason that this song is very important for me. It inspires me to follow my dream, and to live every moment as the last one.
Lyrics Quotes - Moment 4 life
"I fly with the stars in the skies
I am no longer tryin' to survive
I believe that life is a prize
But to live doesn't mean you're alive"
"I sprinkle holy water upon the vampires..."
"In this very moment I'm king
In this very moment I slayed Goliath with a sling
This very moment I bring
Put it on everything, that I will retire with the ring"
"And I will retire with the crown, yes
No, I'm not lucky I'm blessed, yes
Clap for the heavyweight champ, me
But I couldn't do it all alone, we"
"Young Money raised me, grew up out in Baisley
Southside Jamaica, Queens and it's crazy
'Cause I'm still hood, Hollywood couldn't change me
Shout out to my haters, sorry that you couldn't faze me"
"I wish that I could have this moment 4 life
4 life, 4 life
'Cause in this moment, I just feel so alive
"This is my moment, I waited all my life
I can tell it's time
Driftin' away, I'm one with the sunset
I have become alive"
The song I dislike is one from Justin Timberlake. Well, I don't dislike it, I just hate it in my heart. Well the purpose of this post was to focus on the lyrics, something that I will but what I don't like about it isn't the lyrics; its just the song and the rhythm. Wrong singer, wrong rhythm. For the records, I love Justin Timberlake. His acting, and his beauty; I hate his songs. So, this was supposed to be referred on the lyrics, but I couldn't let go this opportunity to express how I feel about this song.
First of all, I hate the rhythm. I just put Pandora, and hear at this song and I don't wait to change it. Well, sometimes I don't have any opportunity because of the limits, which it sucks but anyway...but I always try to keep one of the limits to change it for this song.
Back to the purpose of this song, I have to say that I love the lyric. As I said before, it was just wrong singer, wrong rhythm. It starts talking about a past relationship. I assumed she cheated on him. He explains how was he with her, and how he feels after that. The lyrics express how confused is him about what he expect of that relationship. But then, his chorus says how he believes in something named Karma. He believes that she is going to receive what she gave to him. What I love of this song, is that he just takes his revenge on her. He is saying how she is feeling right now, and how she changed something that was special to someone who didn't appreciate her how she deserves. I just hope that nobody ever dedicate to me this song, because what it express is very true.
Sometimes people don't appreciate what they have, and they don't give the value that their couple deserves. So this is a song that represents the true meaning of Karma. Don't do to someone what you don't like to receive from others, because what you give is what you will receive.
Hey girl, is he everything you wanted in a man?
You know I gave you the world
You had me in the palm of your hand
So why your love went away
I just can't seem to understand
Thought it was me and you babe
Me and you until the end
But I guess I was wrong
Is this the way it's really going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should've known better when you came around
That you were gonna make me cry
It's breaking my heart to watch you run around
'Cause I know that you're living a lie
That's okay baby 'cause in time you will find...
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
Let me paint this picture for you, baby
You spend your nights alone
And he never comes home
And every time you call him
All you get's a busy tone
I heard you found out
That he's doing to you
What you did to meAin't that the way it goes
When you cheated girl
My heart bleeded girl
So it goes without saying that you left me feeling hurt
Just a classic case
Tale as old as time
Girl you got what you deserved
And now you want somebody
To cure the lonely nights
You wish you had somebody
That could come and make it right
But girl I <0>ain't somebody with a lot of sympathy
You should've listened to me, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(What goes around comes back around)
The column that has more words is the loving one. I have to specify that there's loving words for me that you could think they are not but, behind the literal meaning they have a specific one for me. I think it because I believe that's how I feel right now. I make my life the happiest I can, and I do my best when refers to other people in my life.
I'm not pretty sure, how many times I have done this before, but what I'm sure is that it could be a lot. Probably with my family, friends, and people I met on the streets/college/party because we aren't perfect and some things when we are mad, we say hurtful things without thinking of the consequences.
I had thought about what I did that before in my life, but right now I have to say that there's some things harder than others to work on it. We have some walls to break that are bigger than the other, so in that process I'm coming like a wrecking ball like Miley Cyrus, so that's why I got much more words in the loving column than the other. So now, knowing my progress in this process makes me feel good, and happy about the work that I'm doing in my life gaining the results that I have right now. It's feels exciting to know that your effort, and time are getting form. But, that's not all.
I see revealing that there's a lot of work to do. I have some areas in my life, that I require to put the time, and enough effort to make it work right. Maybe I have some breakdowns in some aspects, that are keeping me out of what I want, or maybe I decided for something not to put the attention that It requires. What I learned or I prefer to say remember about my life is where I was standing before, and where I become, and wo I want to become. I learned that time passes fast, and it's very important to know who are being you in your life because remember, you are being someone in someone else's life.
In fact, I didn't learn about what we did, I just remember things that I already know but I didn't put my attention.
Enjoy Life. <3
This entry will be related to a movie critic of 12 Years a Slave
, from Paul MacInnes to the website "The Guardian", and ‘Meatballs 2’ is colorful, if reheated
by Tom Russo to The Boston Globe website. I know that people could think that if you haven't watched a movie, you can't talk about it. So for the records, I'm not going to write about if the movie was good, and if it wasn't because I haven't watch it. Here my focus will be on how the writers focus on the different movie elements like plot, acting, effects, and other elements of movies. In effect i
'll start reviewing the first one, 12 Years a Slave, because it was the one I liked. Then I'll follow the line with the one not so good, in my opinion, from the movie of Meatballs 2.
When I started reading at the 12 Years a Slave's review I was just thinking that it was just a summary. But when I kept reading on it, It realized that the writer was just giving an introduction of what is the movie about. I think that it could help you to understand what is he going to write about. Because, people like me that haven't watch
the movie could understand it without watching it, to take an idea. After the synopsis, he describes the both sides of the story. The one of the slave, and the "owner" of the slave. From the first one he describes good qualities at the beginning, and the power of revolution. Also, it describes how the suffering that he got after being drugged, kidnapped and taken from his equal life. On the other side, when he described the owner, he showed two different sides of affection. A good one, and a bad one. That shows how he focused on the element of acting in this movie. That point makes you know better the character, if you haven't watched it or agree/disagree if you watched it already. But, what I liked most is that he took the time to compare with another slave's movie: Django Unchained. I haven't watch it either, but what he is used to be compared with the effects of the movie like blood, how horror it was, and but not limited to the veneer of the bad guys. He finally describes how the movie, just by his actions can describe you a less 200 year of history without long speeches and boring speaks.
After being proud of what I read, now I have to review the not so good one: "Meatballs 2, is colorful, if reheated". I'm not going to judge you, if you do it because I had to read it more than two times to understand it. I want to remember you, that I haven't watched any of these movies, so that was the reason that It was so hard to understand. This is going to be my first critic to this article. When you write about something you have to be very explainful because there's always someone that didn't watch the movie. So my invitation to the author of this article is very clear. When he tried to explain the plot, i
got lost reading at
it. He lost me, so that was why I had to read it more than 2 times. Finally if it was in the review that I'd read I won't watch the movie, because I didn't find it interesting, in my opinion.
I've learned that is very important when it's time to review a movie, or a novel, etc. The reviewer has to focus on every single detail to make it clear, and lovable. A review is more than just say that you like, or you don't, it's a critical thinking of what the movie is about, how was the acting, and the plot, and last but not least the quality of the film.
Something funny I always do when I go to the theater is that every trailer I watch I say: "I'll watch that movie". Yeah Right, when it starts showing on, I always forgot it. As always there's something that you will love, and you won't. If we follow the line of movies, I have to say that I, mostly, like all the movies I watch because I look for something in every movie to enjoy. Because of that I'll describe one of the movies that I love, and the one I don't.
The first one is 'In Time'. This movie is my EVERYTHING. Every single time I watch this movie I found a different meaning, mostly depending on my mood. It actually changed my life. It makes me live my life like I can't waste any second of my life, because literally like we say "Time is Money". From make me feel sad watching the differences between economic classes, since thinking that's how the system should work, I learn from every scene in this movie. After watching that movie, I literally feel that I have a clock on my hand counting down every second resting me life to live. So this is a Sci Fi movie that is a MUST to watch.
From the one I love, on the other I don't love enough if Snow White and The Hunstman. Actually I love this movie, but It rests credits when they decided to put Kristen Steward as the main character. She makes the movie a horrible one. Her acting isn't good enough to stay watching it. I really really wanted to get out of the theater because I can't handle it. But like everyone is different, I invite you to judge by yourself. Watch both of them, and then you will judge by your own. Have Fun, and remember, you are always free to think whatever you wish...
Life is full of moments that you can describe it by being positives, or negatives. That's what life is about. In my life I have a lot of different moments that I could use for this post, but I want to use one specifically that I will never forget. I want you to know what was happening at that moment when it happened. I was taking some "workshops" where I was able to help me, and help others with my actions. But that day, a Funday (Sunday) I had a cruise with a friend that I met there. We were supposed to leave the workshop earlier than my mates, but they asked us to stay longer, because what was about to happen it was very special. At 8:30pm, it ends. So with luggage in hand with went to Guaynabo to my friend's to ask her mother to take us to the port in Old San Juan. When we left her house, it remember it was 9:15pm already we were on our way to the port. The problem was that she forgot her hand bag at her house. So here its when it starts.
My heart started to beat faster, and faster because I suffer from taquicardea.By everyminute we were late I was sweating, and staring at my watch to look how fast the time was running. With a lot of thoughts that we can have in our head, the only one that was in mine was: "we are not gonna make it". Actually was two, the second one was: "I wanna kill her". So after his father came we finally get at the port. Just 10 minutes before they close the door, we were checking in. No one was around there, we where the last one in crossing the door. While I was walcking my knees were shaking, my hands were sweating and my heart kept beating faster. I wasn't able to talk, my throat were tight and I had a lot of spit. I could filled in that moment a liter of saliva because my mouth were fulled of it. Then finally we made it, thanks GOD!
When you read, "descibe your first" it just make you feel scared as hell. Maybe you could feel that you don't remember but digging a little bit in time you will, or maybe you should try hypnosis. So, after all I will start describing what I felt when I had my "first kiss".
It is not too far. It was the summer before I started High School, and guess what..was special. Don't Judge!!! Guys makes it earlier. But, to give you some idea of what were happening, I had this nice girlfriend, but I never kissed her thanks GOD. After spending time with my ex-bestfriend at his house, he introduced me this "person" who was very special in my life, and always will be. So we met, and we start dating. I remember it was to the Harry Potter premiere, I dont remember which exactly was, but I know that we went to the theater to watch it. When we got to "that person's" home we started talking about what we feel about each other.
So the time has come, to express and let your feelings coming out. Bracking a lot of walls like a wrecking ball, how my deary singer Miley Cirus says, we finally kissed. With a lot of heart compressions, I wasn't able to breath well. I felt like the air wasn't enough, I was shacking looking at "that person". Maybe it could be because of "that persons" blue/green-ish eyes. But what i wont never forget is what, before kissed my hands were already sweating, and I hate it because we were you know touching each other face. So I felt ashamed of my body reaction, but then I let it go. It was the most silence time ever. I really didn't heard anything. It was so calm, so peaceful, so amazing that I was just focused on the kiss, So with the things going on, and getting heat the room, his spit wasn't that nasty I thought it was.
So with nothing more to say, but a lot more to remember I'll keep it to me. Sorry for it.
Always and forever....
