Media Monitoring Saves the Day!

Hey guys! So, in the media class, we just talked about how monitoring our kids media use is a good thing, and here's an article to prove it!


This mom saved her son's life by monitoring his media use! It really works :)

Google's April Fools

Oh my goodness!!!! Google is the coolest! I LOVE they're April Fools game :) If you go to Google maps, then hit search, you'll see a Pokéball symbol on a button that says start. Hit that button, en try and catch Pokémon all over the world!!! It's so fun, seriously. I have 137 out of 150 right now, so I still have a hew to go, but I'm working on it! Tee hee :) this is the perfect thing for someone with a guilty pleasure of all things Pokémon.

Brain vs. Brawn vs. Beauty

I have been watching Survivor this season, which I haven't done in a long time. What intrigued me back into watching it again was the tribes they created. They created 3 different tribes, one filled with people that all had really high IQ's (The Brain Tribe), one filled with really strong muscle-y people like cops, an NBA player, and more (The Brawn Tribe), and one filled with models and other pretty faces, (The Beauty Tribe). I thought this was so interesting! I have to watch it to find out who wins! At first the Brain Tribe has been HORRIBLE, but now that there's only 3 left and they merged, they are in a very good position to make it to the end. I personally think someone from the Brawn tribe is going to win though. They have an even bigger majority on their tribe, and when they merge again will most likely win all the challenges. It's logical. I don't want to make any guesses as to who specifically will win though. In that case, it's all about likeability, and that still remains to be seen.

Power of media

So, the other day, I was really hungry while on my way to work from my class, and I saw the Choose to Give activity going on where they were giving out hot dogs. The idea was that you donate to get one, so I decided it would be a good idea to donate a little something to charity so I could get a hot dog. While in line, I was pulling out my debit card and contemplating the amount of money to donate. I tend to be a tad stingy with my money, and so I was contemplating giving a dollar, because every little bit helps, and I'm a poor starving student with all sorts of debt to pay off. When I looked up for a second though, there was a poster. The poster said something along the lines of "If you are not willing to give when you have nothing, you won't be willing to give when you have everything." Something like that. Anyway, it made me sit there and think for a second about the validity of this statement, and how it's not fully true for everybody, but you know what else I did? I paid $5 instead of $1! I quintupled my donation. The power of media, people! Just that split second to read a semi-motivational poster to make me feel bad about holding all my money to myself, and I multiplied my donation by 5.

Long story short, media is powerful, and it can be used for good or for bad. Look out for how media affects you.

"It done been blessed!"

Another video, yes I know, but so many good videos have been on my mind lately, and I've been sick, so I have a lot of time on my hands to go back and watch my favorites and make new favorites :). Julian Smith is super funny. I started watching his videos almost 4 years ago, or more. I don't even know, but some of these are just too good not to share. If you haven't seen this, you're welcome! If you have, well, you're welcome too!! :)

"Since I switched to pre-blessed food, ain't nothin' changed!"

Also check out Umove, waffles, any of his music videos, and more! :)

I really don't know how I didn't discover Jimmy Fallon earlier... He is HILARIOUS! I love this line of segments he does called "hashtags!" These are so funny, and this is one of the best ones I could find. I've been really into YouTube lately, so most of my posts are videos.. Yeah, I hope you don't mind! Of course you don't! You like laughing, so you're going to watch this video, then comment which hashtag was your favorite! Or if you have a funny #WorstCarIEverHad story, post it here! :) Play along!

My absolute favorite is the first one. :)
