Netflix is an amazing place! I use it all the time. There are such a variety of shows that sometimes it can be overwhelming trying to find something to watch, especially if you are brand new to the platform. There are tons of shows and movies to choose from, some have been in theaters and some previously on network TV, but I'm going to recommend three Netflix originals.
The first one I want to share is a documentary series. It is called Abstract: The Art of Design. It covers eight different topics: shoe design, stage design, architecture, automotive design, graphic design, photography, interior design, and illustration. I personally really enjoy this, because I really like design of all aspects. This really covers a bunch of different aspects and interesting people. I would highly recommend, this is a very chill and informative show to watch.
The second thing I would like to recommend is a movie called Kodachrome. This movie is about a journey of a record company executive who goes on a road trip with his dying dad who is famous for photography. They work out old personal problems on a journey to the last lab that still develops Kodachrome film. I was initially only interested because of the old camera aspect, but it turned out to be a heartwarming story between a dad, a son, and a girl. I would highly recommend this easy going but emotional road trip movie.
The last show that can only be found on Netflix that I recommend would be Somebody Feed Phil. This show follows a guy named Phil around the world. Phil eats delicious cuisine from all cultures. I enjoy this food because of the beautiful places Phil visits, the delicious looking food, but mostly Phil is so funny and becomes BFF's with everyone he meets. This show is very good to watch if you want to chill out, or get some inspiration for places to visit in the world.
P.S. The Office is also very good, but it doesn't qualify for this list because it was originally produced by NBC. It is not a Netflix original.
Vandalism in our school and community can create big problems for businesses and individuals. A little graffiti may be nothing to you, but if that graffiti was on the front window of a business, it could cost them hundreds of dollars to remove it. If the vandalism is profane, it could ruin the owner's business for a while.
Vandalism is not only paint. It can be any deliberate action causing damage to property. I know some people have been tearing our school bathrooms apart or clogging the toilets on purpose. This is just really annoying because it forces students to walk far to an open bathroom. It also means a lot of frustration for our janitors who get stuck fixing the mess.
Did you know that if the vandalism causes more than $500 in damage, it can be considered a felony? That's right! You can be charged criminally for harming property that isn't your own. Places like schools, churches, and parks can be the spot that you get your first felony because of something you thought of as "harmless fun."
Vandalism creates unneeded and unwanted expenses. Overall, I would be comfortable making the claim that vandalism is bad, because who wants their hard-earned money going towards fixing messes created by others? Not me, and I am willing to bet not you either.
Now, there are situations where “vandalism” could be looked at as art. One case would be graffiti, but a different kind of graffiti than I mentioned before. If the graffiti is positive and in a spot that could be brightened up, I don't see why it would be a problem. Public art can bring about happiness in the community. We have several murals and examples of artwork that makes WHS a nicer place. I am all for that.
But in our school and community, true vandalism is not a good thing. If you have permission from whoever you need permission from, then do art in the school or other public places. If you don’t have permission, you shouldn’t do anything.
Whenever I think about my favorite place in my house, I think about one place - my room. My room has been my personal project for a year now. Around a year ago, I painted my room all white so I could have a blank canvas. Since then, I have put up pictures, drawings, album covers, and lots of other nick-nacks up on the walls.
Beyond the walls, there are other great things about my room. I have a desk which I like to use for a lot of things like drawing, painting, taking things apart, and such. There is also a small metal shelf in my room, which holds many different books and magazines. On top of the shelf is a record player, and next to it is a bright red Nike shoe box where I keep all my records. I bought some of the records at the thrift store, some at a record store, and others I ordered online.
The comfiest place in my room is my bed. It's super cozy with the softest blankets and the best stuffed animals. Yes, my favorite stuffed animals cover most of my bed. I like to relax there, and do things like watch Netflix and sleep.
If you ask my mom or dad, they would probably back me up on the statement that if I’m not doing anything, I am probably in my room. My room makes me feel happy, creative, and safe. It is filled with my favorite things, including music, pictures, magazine cutouts, and my stuffed animals.
Ultimately, my room is a reflection of me and I am glad that I have the resources and support to be able to do that, *cough cough* awesome parents!
There are a lot of things that people may say they can’t live without. Some may say they could not live without their favorite food. I think that most people would choose physical objects as something they couldn’t live without. My choice is a little bit different. I could not live without summer.
Truly if there was no summer I might go crazy. Each summer is a chance for me to discover new things that I don’t learn in school and also to relax.
During the summer, I get this feeling throughout my body. The feeling is indescribable. Each day I wake up and it is a chance to do something new.
Summertime is great because I don't have a big portion of my day taken away by school. I can go on adventures and hang out with friends all day, everyday.
I love summer because I can spend all day trying to do things that I would never do in school. Summer gives me the break I need to continue functioning.
