Once Upon a Time Season 4: Don’t Tell Me to Let It Go

Dec 31, 2016

The previous season was one wild ride. First, the Wicked Witch of the West decided to come over and take over all of Storybrooke. Not only that, she also attempted to steal Mary Margaret and David’s infant child to raise as her (evil) own. To make matters even more complicated, it’s revealed that she is the daughter of Cora and Regina’s half sister. No wonder she’s so powerful. Next, let’s just talk about Peter Pan for a bit. It sort of makes sense that Peter Pan actually has the whole kidnapping-of-boys operation going on. But Peter Pan being the father of Rumpelstiltskin? We did not see that coming at all. Then there’s this whole side story of Regina looking for her happily......

Margot Lee Shetterly: Shooting for the Moon

Dec 29, 2016

History has proven that women and other minorities must work extra hard to be recognized for their efforts, so much so that the term glass ceiling was coined. The term pertains to an invisible barrier that prevents minorities from advancing in their chosen profession because of bias. Over the years, people belonging to the minority have tried to shatter the glass ceiling out of existence. Margot Lee Shetterly, a researcher and entrepreneur, is the author of Hidden Figures, an account of the first people who have broken through the invisible barrier. The book recently made waves across the world after it was adapted into a film, released late this year. Born in 1969 in Virgi......

Once Upon a Time Season 3: The Plot Thickens

Dec 24, 2016

Just when we thought happily ever after is within reach, someone just has to step in and ruin it all. The original curse may be gone, but Rumpel’s not about to give up the fight. Now that everyone has their memory back, they can’t return to the Enchanted Forest. Plus, anyone who crosses the town line will forget their fairy-tale identity. And because she wanted to protect Rumpelstiltskin, Belle accidentally crosses over the line and forgets who she is. Even worse? Henry is in Neverland after being kidnapped by Greg and Tamara, who are working for Peter Pan (who is apparently evil). Warning:  The main purpose of this post is to serve as a guide when watching the series ......

James Patterson: Record-Breaking Writer

Dec 22, 2016

Besides being an art, writing can also be a business. While some writers focus on the purpose of their stories, others concentrate on giving the world more than just their story. Thriller author James Patterson may have been criticized many times for turning his art into a business, but this doesn’t stop him from giving back to a deserving community. James Patterson is not just an extraordinary writer—he was also an extraordinary academic. He graduated summa cum laude in both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English at Manhattan College and Vanderbilt University. He was a PhD candidate but decided to go ahead and jump into the corporate world. He was an advertising executive......

Oh Christmas Carol, Oh Christmas Song

Dec 19, 2016

There is one Christmas tradition that all of us know too well, caroling. Every year, it’s tradition to come together and sing songs and carols that capture the spirit of Christmas. What many people don’t know is that there is a big difference between Christmas carols and Christmas songs. To make a distinction between the two, let us first look at the definition of the words song and carol. A song is a poem or a set of words set to music. A carol, on the other hand, is defined as a folk song or popular hymn often associated with religion. Moreover, something that is considered a carol is a song that has stood the test of time. Using these definitions, we can say that Christmas car......

Once Upon a Time Season 2: Magic and Reality—They Just Don’t Mix!

Dec 17, 2016

OUAT’s first season introduced us to the magical world of the Enchanted Forest, where, apparently, all fairy-tale characters are connected one way or another. We were also taken to the tiny town of Storybrooke, Maine, where our fairy-tale characters are clueless about their true identities. By now, we know that the Evil Queen and Rumpelstiltskin are in cahoots, only they know the truth about the curse. By the end of season 1, we are introduced to Belle, who has a certain relationship with Rumpelstiltskin. The curse could only be broken by one thing—true love’s first kiss. The curse breaks, but not in the way we’re used to. Everyone’s memories are returned, but they didn’t return t......
