The 2nd Annual The Winter Spotlight Show @QUMS

Hi everyone,

It is 2015! Happy New Year to you and yours. I know that it has been a while since the last review, but I am here with a brand new one for you.

On January 16th, Queens United Middle School (QUMS), hosted their 2nd annual Winter Spotlight Show and first ever potluck. The potluck featured dishes that parents had provided for the students and faculty. Dishes such as macaroni and cheese, rice and peas, and chicken were just some of the delights that were on display.

This year's spotlight show focused mainly on video presentation. Such groups like Zumba and Drama provided video performances of students. Music and cheerleading clubs performed live. In addition, it is also important that students in the cheerleading club had performed their "I can't breathe" cheer in memory of Eric Gardner. Which made such a powerful statement in the wake of what has been going in the world.

With so much negativity, students also showcased their works of art for the audience. Some works were drawings and writings/poetry that students had made.

The show also featured Miss Abby's fashion show. This year the fashion show's theme was glow in the dark designs. The students wore glow in the dark glow sticks and paint on their clothes. 'Miss Abby', as the students know her by, had told the packed auditorium that "this year's theme was to show that models can be any gender, race and size." She wanted to show her students that in a business where there can be discrimination solely based on how one looks, that no matter who you are, you can still walk the runway.

The wonderful thing about Miss Abby is hard work and dedication to her craft and to her students. She is the embodiment that 'you can do anything, if you put your mind to it.'

What was amazing was at the final of the show, students had performed a light show with the glow sticks. That was pretty awesome and so wonderful to watch. The show was wonderful and I can't wait to see next year's show.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
