Who is A? – My Predictions

Originally posted on Fandom Addict:
Hi everyone, So the mid-season finale for Pretty Little Liars airs tomorrow! This episode is probably the most important in the series: it’s A’s identity reveal! The most recent episodes have revealed some incredibly important clues that bring us closer to solving the mystery. Charles DiLaurentis is alive and wanted by the Rosewood police. Red Coat is still in the picture. Clark and Lorenzo aren’t bad. I. Marlene King, the show’s executive producer, has said that we have met A, meaning he/she is one of the characters already introduced in the show. There are many different speculations on who A and Red Coat are, and after a lot of deep thinking, I’ve come up with my own guesses. A’s Identity I’ve put a lot of thought into this, and here’s what I think: I think Charles is A, but I’m not sure who Charles is. The newest character that has been added to the series is Reese, and he definitely looks like a DeLaurentis. I thought he was Jason when…

Things Shy People Hate.

things shy people hate. Being introduced as shy.? Stop. Just don’t do it. Do you think that person is unable to recognise someone’s personality traits alone? By doing this, you forbid them from being anything but shy, making it like they are contradicting or betraying you if they even try to be openly excited, or loud, or even happy. Not inviting them to places because you think they won’t enjoy it.? There is a 67% possibility that they will say no but then there is also a 33% chance they will say yes and if you don’t even try to ask them then it will just make them think that you don’t want to hang out with them and make them retreat into their turtle shells. Being asked, “Why are you so shy?” I don’t why I am shy, if I did I wouldn’t be. While I figure out my life, please don’t keep pestering me with why’s because it just reminds me of my flaws and let’s me know it’s…

Teens Tell Their Story (Week 3): YouTube

Originally posted on Harrison Davis:
This is week 3 of the amazing ‘teens tell their story’ project run by the equally amazing Caitlyn & Sherina. I missed week 2, unfortunately, but really enjoyed week 1 (you can read it here) and I’m back to do week 3! As you can tell by the title, this weeks topic is YouTube. If you’re like me, then YouTube has replaced TV in your life and pretty much all of the video content you consume comes from the online platform, except for Emmerdale, I love Emmerdale. I frickin love YouTube. It allows me to travel the world from my sofa (well…kinda) as well as be entertained on a daily basis. I can’t imagine my life without it, and I realise how sad that sounds,but I don’t care. What’s great about YouTube is, for the most part, it allows for an extremely positive community of people with similar interests to interact. In addition to this, anyone can make a channel and build a fanbase, which is awesome and means the…

Judging A Dawson’s Creek Pocket Book By Its Cover

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
A couple of years ago, Molly was kind enough to send me a care package of books, most of which are geared towards a younger audience, because she gets me. One of the books in said package was a novelization of Dawson’s Creek, called A Capeside Christmas. Here I am reading A Capeside Christmas while we were waiting to get into the Dawson’s Creek Writers Reunion at ATX TV Festival in June It seems as if novelizing popular TV shows seemed to be a big 90s thing that brought in all the cash for these already hit programs. I’m pretty sure I read one or two of the Full House books, but there was also a collection of Buffy, Charmed, and Roswell ones floating around too. But the thing about these was that they were never *quite* in canon with the shows they were derived from. I recently finished A Capeside Christmas, and hands down, it was one of the worst things I’ve ever read. But I finished it, so…

What Do Young People Think About Religion in General?

Originally posted on Millennial Evangelical: One of the cornerstones of Millennial study is Soul Searching a book and study by Dr. Christian Smith and Melinda Lundquist Denton. Smith is the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center for the Study of Religion and Society at the University of Notre Dame. The book, published in 2009, outlines the findings from a study by the National Study of Youth and Religion from July 2002 to March 2003. While much of what I write may be specifically tailored to mid-to-young Millennials, Smith’s book gives us important insight on the older Millennials that would have been interviewed in this study. The book is a trove of information about Millennials, but one of the biggest takeaways is a term he coined: moral therapeutic deism—more on that later, though. What do teens, or those who are now in their late-20s or early-30s, think about religion? When Smith interviewed a number of teens who consider themselves “nonreligious,” here is what they told him about religion. These are actual quotes from …
