Suicide rates are increasing as we get more depressing

Depression has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially thanks to the widespread use of social media and desensitization to the term “depressed” as well as the concept of suicide becoming a joke among Gen Z.

Phrases like “I’m going to kill myself if I don’t get an A in this class,” or “I’m so tired of this life that I might as well commit,” or the typical “kms” so often sent through text are used more than this generation even seems to realize.

The Rise of K-Pop in the West

(This article was written by Mason Jar Butterfly and me).

The phenomenal introduction of Korean entertainment and culture around the world, alternatively known as the Hallyu wave, took storm in the late 2000s. Three top companies—SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and YG Entertainment—are the sole leaders of the industry’s globalization. What started in merely Seoul, South Korea has since branched out towards the entirety of Southeastern Asia and has made landfall in Europe and the Americas, making history every day.

Bandersnatch: Could This Mean A Revolution?

Just a few days before we kicked off the year 2019, Netflix’s show Black Mirror came out with a new film, but instead of being their usual one-hour (more or less) episodes, they decided to do something completely new: a movie–an interactive one at that.

December 14: A bomb threat at Sandy Hook on the anniversary of the 2012 mass shooting

Imagine you’re seated in class at your elementary school. Your teacher talks about how today you’ll be learning to divide; you gleam with newfound excitement, eager to start this path towards knowledge that seems to be opening up for you.

Suddenly, you hear a sound–a sound that scares you to your bones and spends creepy chills down your spine: the school’s alarm is blaring and someone’s voice has announced that the school is on lock-down and everyone has to get out immediately.

And I Can’t Help But Think: What Will Become of Us?

Just as a warning, I will say this: this is my own opinion and if you believe otherwise, then that’s your own opinion, which I respect, so respect mine the same way.

 

This year’s Midterm elections took place yesterday, November 6, 2018. From 7 pm all the way until 2 am of today, I spent my time anxiously, eyes glued to my phone’s screen to check if I got any Twitter alerts that announce the winners for Florida’s gubernatorial and senatorial races.

The Reason Behind the Purge Show’s Success

Boston University Admissions’ reception in Miami, Florida: A Review

Today (September 23, 2018) Boston University Admissions held two ‘special receptions’ in Florida. One of these events took place at Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay, while the other was at Pine Crest School Boca Campus Performing Arts Center.

After having been informed about the receptions, I decided to go to the one closest to me: the one in Miami. This event would take place from 1 pm to 2 pm, and all the people attending–which included high school students from all grades and their parents–would hear talks from three different people related to Boston University in some way that would be advocating for BU and convincing the attendees to join the school.
