Obsessions in 2012

Happy New Year everyone!! Over the past year, as with all years, the general public developed some crazy obsessions. Here are a few note-worthy obsessions (in no particular order) from 2012.

1. One Direction- This British boy band has won over the hearts of many screaming teenage girls and continue to do so every day. One Direction dolls, sticker books (I own one, it’s not a big deal…), calendars, a tour DVD, and much more have been produced. They also sold out their next two world tours, so I would say it is a safe bet that this obsession will carry on through 2013.

2. Call Me Maybe- The ultra-catchy pop song released by Carly Rae Jepson became a guilty pleasure for many. Countless tweets and Facebook statuses were devoted to the song’s lyrics, and she has even been nominated for a Grammy because of it. Essentially the song is ridiculously silly, but that catchy beat just makes you sing like there’s no tomorrow.

3. The Apocalypse- Speaking of no tomorrow, everyone obsessed over the prediction of the end of the world in accordance to the Mayan calendar. I’m pretty sure that the world has been “supposed to end” like five times before, but for some reason, people latched onto this prediction and thought it to be true. Quite obviously, the Mayans were wrong.

4. Gangnam Style- This Korean Pop (K-Pop) song has over one billion views, making it the most viewed video on YouTube EVER! Psy, the singer of this treasured gem of a tune, has become incredibly famous and has been signed to a record company in the United States. As long as all of his songs are as ridiculous and come with cheesy dance moves, I am in full support of his musical success.

5. iPhone 5- Technology is ever changing, and thanks to Apple and the iPhone, society is obsessed with getting the newest version of any technology related item released on the market. iPhones have been taking over the world recently, and with the release of the iPhone 5, people’s technology obsession is worsening.

6 .Snap Chat- Speaking of iPhones, Snap Chat has become a major obsession of the world recently. As I mentioned in this video, I have a flip phone, which quite obviously lacks Snap Chatting capabilities, but I have experienced the phenomenon that is Snap Chat. Now it is possible to send videos via Snap Chat, thus deepening the obsession.

7. The Hunger Games- The trilogy by Suzanne Collins has become increasingly popular this past year with the release of the equally popular movie adaptation of the first book. Attractive actors, action, and a little bit o’romance. What’s not to love?

8. Honey Boo Boo- TLC’s latest masterpiece is Here Come’s Honey Boo Boo. This television show features former Toddlers and Tiaras contestant Alana Thompson. She and her family are unapologetically their outrageous selves, which I can respect, but society better redneckognize that there is a problem with this being a normal thing to watch.

A dolla makes me holla honey boo boo.

9. Kim Kardashian Baby- Speaking of problems with society, Kim and Kanye are having a baby! Remember when Kim was married that one time for 72 days? Yeah me neither. Hopefully these two semi-horrible human beings will be able to successfully raise a child together.

14. Pretty Little Liars- The popular television show on ABC Family had its season finale this fall and its major plot twist caused quite the buzz. The book series by Sara Shepard is still popular, as is this intense television show.

15. Fab 5- The women’s Olympic gymnastics team gained a lot of fame in these past Olympics. They all did incredibly well, and golden child Gabby Douglas sealed the deal on them all being fabulous with her two gold medals.

Happy New Year to all, and thanks for reading :)

Music Monday: Little Things

Happy Monday everyone! As we know, this past weekend was Family Weekend. My mother and father came and it was wonderful seeing them! We went out to eat several times as well, so it was splendid not having to eat Atherton food like usual. The most exciting event of the weekend by far was discovering that there is a camel on campus! There was a campus wide lock down yesterday due to a robbery suspect running through campus. In one of the alert now messages, BUPD accidentally said the suspect was headed to the camel. One can only assume they meant canal. Either way, Butler got itself a new fury friend. The camel even has its own Twitter!

Keeping in the spirit of Music Monday, let’s just take a minute and talk about One Direction’s “Little Things” music video. One Direction’s newest single “Little Things” came out last weekish and it is SO good! Ed Sheeran wrote it, so then again, how could it not be?! I am not saying the song is good just because I am a typical teenage girl who is in love with One Direction. The song is really pretty and all of their voices sound really solid. The music video is quite nice as well. I am saying the video is good just because I am a typical teenage girl who is in love with One Direction. They are all so beautiful and I just can’t get over it. The black and white camera lens, coupled with the soft lighting, the candid shots of them laughing, and their angelic voices is too perfect to bear. *Swoon* And their hair. I just can’t get over their hair. That is enough fangirling for one day so I will leave you with the video. Have a wonderful week and thanks for reading :)

The Weekend

Happy Friday to everyone! This weekend is a fairly exciting one because it is Family Weekend!! Yaaahoooo! My mom and dad are coming tomorrow and I am so excited to see them! They came and visited me about a month ago, but I was so busy that I didn’t get to spend much time with them. I am greatly looking forward to seeing them! Unfortunately neither one of my brothers can come, but I will be reunited with them in a few weeks at Thanksgiving!

Another exciting aspect of this weekend is that it is the Dance Team Clinic! The clinic is tomorrow and consists of us teaching young girls a dance that will be performed at the basketball game on Saturday evening. We are dancing to One Direction, and as I have posted before, I am a fan of 1D. It will be fun to dance with all of the little girls at the game as well!

Classic Joke of the Week: Why was the scarecrow promoted? He was outstanding in his field!

As I mentioned in my last post, I am going to start vlogging soon (probably next week), so watch out for that!! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading :)

Music Monday: Ed Sheeran

Happy Monday to all! As I said last week, I am going to make every Monday, Music Monday. My friends and I in high school started sending each other music each Monday to make one of the dullest days of the week a bit more special. Since we all liked it so much, I thought I would share the idea of Music Monday with you!

This week I am going to recommend some music by Ed Sheeran. I mentioned him last week in my post about One Direction, but I thought he deserved a post all to himself. Ed Sheeran is a British musician who has released eight extended plays and one album. His debut album, +, has done incredibly well in England, and his single The A Team has begun to be played on the radio here in the United States. I downloaded his album in the early summer and I am still obsessed. His voice and lyrics are fabulous and you should definitely check him out. Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions for any music recommendations. Happy Monday and thanks for reading! :)

One Direction

It is no secret that One Direction Infection has taken over and has been festering in the hearts of teenage girls all over the world. This “infection” is due to the good looks, sweet lyrics, and gravity-defying hair of the members of the British boy band, One Direction. For those of you that don’t know who One Direction is (you must live under a rock), they are an ever so popular British boy band that was formed via The X Factor back in 2010. Recently, One Direction’s super star status has been spread throughout the United States and has produced a slew of shrieking teenage fans known as the Directioners.

A dear friend of mine has been a Directioner for quite some time now, spewing countless facts about the members of the band at the drop of a hat, and I initially judged her for it. The boys, Liam, Louis, Zayn, Harry, and Niall, range from the ages of 18-20, and are incredibly adorable and charming (with those British accents, how could they not be?!), so I understood, but did not agree with, the appeal. Upon actually listening to some of their songs, watching interviews, and listening to my friend share 1D facts, I have succumbed to the fandom. I would not consider myself a full out Directioner, but I am definitely becoming a fan.

The boys have incredibly catchy songs, such as their breakout singles What Makes You Beautiful and One Thing. Besides having a solid hand at producing catchy pop jingles, the band can whip out a pretty good ballad. Their song Moments, written by VH1 You Ought to Know Artist Ed Sheeran, is an incredibly touching song about a boy’s struggles after his girlfriend passes away.  Not only does the song have sweet lyrics, but all of the boys sound really good! By creating tunes that show various aspects of the band’s abilities, 1D can only grow stronger as a band and gain more screaming fans. If you have heard their songs but are not a Directioner yet, you can stop pretending to think they are overrated and stupid. It is only a matter of time until you are infected.

*Every Monday I am going to try and post something related to music/ suggest music to listen to. It will be called Music Monday!
