Things to do during the holidays

As the holidays are fast approaching many of us are getting ready for final exams, mid-term graduation, and getting ready for holiday break? Many are probably wondering what can I do over break to keep myself entertained?

There is nothing better than laying in bed on a cold snowy day enjoying hot chocolate and good food while binge watching favorite TV shows and movies, but for those who want to get up and move around here are some fun and simple things to do while  on Christmas break.

Everyone loves food, so look up some fun recipes and cook with  friends and family.

Shopping, I’m sure there is some holiday shopping that you haven’t finished yet or you simply just want that new iPhone x or some clothes or makeup from Sephora, so get some close friends and enjoy a day  of shopping followed by lunch or a nice dinner.

The holidays are a time to be thankful for what you have because many people may not be as fortunate to have as much as you do, so dedicate a day and time to volunteer at  local shelters to serve food to the homeless or purchase some clothes, food, shoes, gift cards, and a variety of other items  to give out to people who don’t have as much. Nothing feels better than giving back for the holidays.

Plan a big road trip with family or friends to enjoy the holidays somewhere you have always wanted to visit.

Attend a concert. Check  local venues such as Mercury Ballroom, the YUM! Center and Kentucky Center for Arts to see if there are any good artists coming soon.

Go to some local attractions, such as Lights Under Louisville or Strike and Spare, get online and search the city and some local attractions that you can enjoy with those closest to you.

Have a friendsmas with your best friends, gather some food and drinks, some good music, a good TV show and have a secret Santa exchange.

Drive around and look at some Christmas lights.

The holidays are a great time to stay inside and relax, get out and find something fun and festive to do with your loved ones and also a great time to give back to those who may not be fortunate.  I hope that this list give you some ideas of some fun things to do this holiday season.

13 Reasons Why season 2


Netflix, along with the directors of 13 Reasons Why, has confirmed that there will be a second season of the show.  The show hit big back in march and april.  Many people have stated that season two won’t be as good, or how will season two be? Because of the book, and that there was not a second part after Hannah Baker committed suicide, but it is confirmed that there will be a season two.

 Netflix has given some insight on what we may expect from season two.  We may see other perspectives of Hannah’s story.  Jessica’s story will continue on as she tries to return to a normal healthy lifestyle.  Hannah will not be the narrator and there are no more tapes.  They show how we can do better at treating others and what things we can do differently to prevent what happened in season one.  Bryce will get what’s coming for him.

 A Rolling Stone article online confirms that the show will not be released until 2018.  The show will start from the point of the aftermath of Hannah’s suicide and will show the characters and their journey to recovery.

I have so many questions that are unanswered such as what happens to the tapes? Will we see the court case? What happens to most of the people on the tapes? Do Alex or Clay die? No one knows for sure but we will see when the second season comes out which I cannot wait for.

Katy Perry’s Plans for 2017


We have seen Katy Perry change throughout the years, but never as dramatically as she is right now.  Katy Perry is in the middle of completely reinventing her style, hair, looks, and her music.  Katy has just released the name for her new album along with her upcoming 2017-2018 world tour for her upcoming album.

 Katy has already released two songs from her new record titled “Witness”, she has released her song Chained to the Rhythm, and Bon appetit.  Katy’s new music is very different from her past singles and albums, every album that she drops comes with a new era for her, in this era we are seeing a whole new side of Katy, along with short shaved platinum blonde hair, shorter fitting clothes, and the sound of her music is very different.  Katy has been performing for the past couple of weeks giving a hint of what her new music will be like along with her upcoming tour later this year that will include a stop at the KFC Yum! Center on October 16th.

 Katy’s new album “Witness” will be released on June 9, 2017 and tickets for her upcoming tour go on sale May 22, 2017 to the general public.  A list of tour dates and tickets for sale is below.

Miley’s transformation

Right off the Pacific Coast Highway in California sits a little wooden house flying a pride flag, lined with butterfly chairs. It’s Rainbow Land, the home and recording studio of Miley Cyrus, who’s about to transform herself yet again.  Cyrus has already begun her transformation with her new song titled “Malibu” which was released yesterday along with a music video sporting long ombre hair, vintage style clothing and running along the coast of Malibu Beach.  

Cyrus is breaking out yet again to transform herself and her career, she stated in an interview “I like to surround myself with people that make me want to get better, more evolved and open.” Cyrus shares her property with  her seven dogs, two pigs and two ponies, and her Australian fiance actor Liam Hemsworth.

Yesterday, May 11, she released her new single “Malibu” a breezy pop rock single which has already hit No. 1 on the charts across the world.  The upcoming album this year is a more DIY up to date of Miley, she wrote all of the melodies herself.  “This is Miley reaching into her roots more than I have ever heard” her father Billy Ray Cyrus said in press interviews.

After President Donald Trump was elected, Cyrus who supported presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, launched Hopeful Hippies part of her Happy Hippie foundation, a non-profit organization that encourages people to turn their emotion into action.  Cyrus has recreated herself once again digging into her roots and her beliefs more than ever.  She seems truly happy with herself and she wants to create real change with her actions and her music.

I can’t wait to see what Miley has in store with her new album and tour and herself overall this year.
