Tinder Social Experiment

Ebook (1).png Hello and happy Thursday. The year is almost over, and so I want to reflect on a little something I did a few months ago, before I decided to delete Tinder from my phone. Let’s get started, shall we?

First, let me be clear; it’s me we’re talking about, I wasn’t going to do something too crazy or dangerous, especially when it came to strange men. My social experiment consisted of looking at all my matches and texting “hi” to all of them and see what would happen.

I set some rules for myself to ensure that the experiment could go right and become post-worthy, so for example I decided I wasn’t going to unmatch any guy after I’d texted in the first place unless 1) he expressed that for some reason he wasn’t interested in talking to me, and 2) he was rude or offensive. Over the course of the experiment, I didn’t “like” any new guys, just the group I started out with.

This one guy replied right after I texted, and asked me what I was doing. This was a Sunday night, and you know what teachers do on Sunday nights: we sleep. I’d been out with my family watching “It” and the only thing I wanted to do was getting bed and text random guys. I told him I was getting ready for bed, and he said that sucked because he actually wanted to ask me to meet that night. Cool, dude, you clearly didn’t read my bio, where I stated that I’m a book loving, makeup obsessed, tattooed TEACHER.

This other guy replied while I was talking to guy number one, and said something about him looking for a girlfriend to take to Montecarlo, which sounds weird as it is, so I wished him good luck and unmatched him. That’s why I created rule number one; I’d had matches for quite a while so some of them might’ve been far away from me at the moment I texted.

There was this other guy who replied “hi” back over the night, but just that. Like, I know I wasn’t giving him a lot to begin with, but come on, he could have said something else, make it a bit easier to have a conversation.

After a week or so, I unmatched everyone, and then the following month I deleted Tinder, but that had nothing to do with this experiment or the app itself. Have you done your own social experiment? Tell me about it!

Happy Thursday!

Love, Miss Camila

It’s Good Enough

Hello and happy Wednesday. You probably already know that I’m not really into adult books because I’m a child at heart, but every once in a while I’ll read one and share my thoughts on it in here. Today I’m bringing you a review of The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson. Let’s get started, shall we?

My first thought with this book was that it was sort of predictable, but the truth is that not much happens, so it’s not a big deal.

At first I thought the characters were dull, you know? Like not much was going on in their lives. I think that was the author’s intention, at least at the beginning.

I grew to like this book enough to read it all, but there were things I didn’t like at all, for example, the fact that Rosie, the main character, who gets pregnant at the age of 44 when having unprotected sex with Jonathan, her boyfriend, is always insisting on her baby needing a father. Like, I get it, you’re old, but babies don’t *need* a father to grow healthy and happy.

The story revolves around Rosie’s life after she decides not to move with Jonathan to the other side of the country and realizes she’s pregnant. I like the fact that the plot is not about Rosie’s love life, but it’s about several aspects of her world and the way she sees things now that she’s going to have a baby.

It is all in all a good book, nothing too great or exciting, but entertaining enough. Do you have any recommendations of fun adult books? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading!

My Thoughts on “It”

NETFLIX TALK- (1).png

Hello and happy Tuesday. I know it’s still the holidays and we should be thinking about happy stuff and sipping hot chocolate and all that, but today I want to talk to you about the new version of the movie It, based on the novel by Stephen King. Let’s get started, shall we?

I love horror films and I enjoy them a lot. They don’t really scare me as much, but rather make me laugh. “It” was definitely entertaining, but it was a long-ass movie. I went to watch it with my family, and at one point my brother, who was sitting next to me, whispered “I want it to be over already,” and I completely agreed with him.

Now, I said it was entertaining, but not in the “I’m super scared, this is awesome” kind of way. In my opinion, this movie wasn’t really scary, and I know some people say it’s nothing like the original movie, which I’ll have to watch in order to make a fair comparison. From what I saw, it was more funny-scary.

A great deal of the movie’s appeal, to me, were the child actors. They were hilarious, and although I’m a teacher and am always making sure that my students use “appropriate language,” it was impossible for me not to love the fact that they cursed all the time.

I’ve always hated clowns, but I’m not afraid of them, which is why I think I didn’t find “It” really scary or disturbing. If you are scared of clowns, then you’ll probably be traumatized. If not, you’ll experience a few scary bits, but other than that don’t expect much.

My sister had a blast analyzing each character’s back story. Let me tell you, those are deep and dark. I haven’t watched the original movie or read the novel, but I felt there was some representation, taking into account that the story was set in a mostly white town in the U.S.

You know I’m a sucker for soundtracks, and the one from this movie was A+. I think it’s what makes me think about probably watching it again sometime in the distant future. Besides that, I’ve added the novel to my wish list, and be sure that I’ll write a post on it when I read it.

Do you like horror films? If so, what is your favorite one and why? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Tuesday!

Online Dating 101

Ebook.pngHello, happy Monday and Merry Christmas for those of you who celebrate Christmas. I have a confession to make: I have a crush on someone. And yes, I know that based on the title of this post you might be thinking I met somebody online, but, no, I met this guy in person, the organic way. Because I feel kind of strongly for him already, I’ve decided to delete my dating apps and accounts, which I might regret in the future, but I feel like I don’t need at the moment. So, instead, I want to pass on the knowledge to you and hope it is helpful. Let’s get started, shall we?

1. Explore Your Options

You read the words “apps” and “accounts” correctly because I have used several (free) online dating services at the same time. The one I’d been subscribed to the longest was OkCupid, which I think is one of the most “traditional” online dating services there are. You fill out your profile, answer some questions, and then you are shown a series of profiles you might be interested in. Pretty basic, but also pretty straightforward. I also used Tinder, although I should clarify that I was more active on it while I was traveling because I was looking to meet foreigners or guys who were on vacation like I was.

I briefly used two other services, one is called Seeking Arrangement and is basically for people looking for sugar daddies or sugar babies. What can I say? I wanted to explore that possibility for a while. On that same line, I found Miss Travel, which is a travel dating site. I deleted both accounts on these sites after a few weeks of being a member.

The reason I’m telling you about the different sites there are is so you know which is better suited for you or the type of relationship you want. In my opinion, the most complete is OkCupid, but it is for people seeking a somewhat serious relationship, be it online or in person.

2. Be Honest

Be honest about who you are and what you’re looking for. It’s tough to write a profile, I get it, and we tend to enhance some truths at times, make ourselves seem nicer, but at times that doesn’t get the attention we want. I’m open about having a blog, and being a teacher. I’m open about having tattoos and being obsessed with makeup, and in that sense I steer clear from guys who prefer “natural-looking” girls or who think tattoos are ugly.

3. Be Rude if Needed 

Don’t engage in conversations you don’t want to have. If somebody is talking to you and you don’t want them to, or if you simply get bored talking to someone, then delete the conversations. Block out profiles if needed. This is the magic of online dating: you don’t know the person and they don’t know you. I have erased all traces of people in my life simply by hitting the “delete” and “block” buttons. If you’re having doubts about talking to someone, then sweetie, that someone is not the love of your life.

4. Be Bold if Needed 

Okay, suppose you’re looking through profiles and see one you like. First and foremost, read through their profile and make sure it looks legit (I’ll expand on that one later). If you like what you read and like the pictures you see, don’t wait around for them to talk to you because you could be left waiting for a long time. The magic of online dating is the fact that you can be flirty, even if in person you’re an awkward mess.

Take it from me, I was horrible at flirting in person, but as I started talking more and more to guys online, I got confident, and it even helped me handle situations in real life. Flirting can be fun (I actually enjoy flirting a lot nowadays), and it can come off more easily to some people than it does to others, but like everything in life, you can get better with practice. And, what a better way to practice than with people you don’t know and will probably never see in your life? The worst that can happen in that case is not getting a reply whatsoever.

5. Become a Super Spy

Learn to identify catfish (fake profiles). Read through a profile a couple of times. Make sure it sounds legit. Check a person’s profile picture and check that they look the age they say they are. Then look through all of their pictures and be sure that it’s the same person in all of them. They should have more than one picture, and at least one of just themselves. If they only have group pictures, it’s unclear who the person behind the profile is.

I say become a super spy because you have to look for tiny clues that let you know a profile is fake. This might be extreme, and might be more applicable to some online dating sites than others, but my advice would be to think every profile is fake until you’re proven wrong. How can you be proven wrong? If the person you’re talking to suggests or agrees to talk on other platforms, preferably if they agree to Skype or FaceTime (that way you see their face before meeting in person). If they give you their number to talk via Whatsapp, add them and make sure they are the same person in their picture on both profiles. Look at their phone number and check that the area code is from the place they stated they were from. If they pass those tests, you can talk to them.

As a person who talked via Whatsapp (texts, voice notes, and calls) and Skype with a guy for a while, I can tell you doing all these things was a way for me to know that I was indeed talking to a real person, and the reasons why I stopped talking to him had nothing to do with our communication.

Here they are, my five pieces of advice when going into the world of online dating. I had fun, and am open to give it a try again in the future. If there’s some more advice you’d like to share, feel free to do so in the comments!

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila

My Concealers

Hello and happy Sunday. I feel like I haven’t posted a haul or a review on makeup products that I use on a regular basis in a long while, so recently, while I was doing some cleaning up I noticed how many different concealers I had, and decided it would be a fun idea to share with you my thoughts on them. Let’s get started, shall we?

 

The first ones I want to show you were actually in my empties bin, so I’m not currently using them. I’ll let you know whether I plan on buying them again or not.

 

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector 

I didn’t think I’d love this concealer as much as I did, but towards the end I literally had to scoop up whatever was still in the tube because I felt like my everyday makeup wasn’t complete without it. I like concealers that have the sort of texture that is liquid enough to easily blend, but also thick enough to do the job of concealing the dark circles under my

 

eyes and any redness on my face. It has a doe foot applicator, which I like, although I know some people don’t find it the most hygienic. I can get this concealer at the drugstore, so I’ll definitely buy it again soon.

Trestique Mini Concealer Crayon in Porcelain 

I got this in one of my Ipsy glam bags, and I instantly fell in love with it. If you want a full coverage concealer, then get a stick, or a crayon, or a pot concealer because these have the thickest texture. Now, because of the texture, this is not as easy to blend in, but if I’m being completely honest, I really didn’t any blending when using the concealer crayon, I just applied it and then worked everything into my skin once I put foundation on. The downside is, it broke and I couldn’t use it anymore. This has happened to me with other c

 

rayon products and I don’t even try to fix them, I just throw them away. Maybe the full-size version is a little sturdier. I would like to keep trying stick concealers in the future, whether they are Trestique or another brand.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer 

This is one of those products that have sort of a screw at the bottom you have to turn in order to get the stuff coming from the tip. I’m not a fan of those products at all, so I had a little trouble working with this concealer. That being said, it has a nice, almost powdery texture, and it works wonders highlighting the under-eye area. I prefer other concealers to this one, but if it were super discounted or (for some crazy reason) the only product available, then I’d buy it again.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

I bought this because everyone on YouTube was talking about it and I’m that kind of person, okay? It has a screw-system, so the first applications were a little dreadful, I was very annoyed and asked myself a couple hundred times of the reason why I thought it was a good idea to get that concealer in the first place. After a few times of trying, I finally discovered the successful way to apply it and I fell in love. Seriously. This is my ride-or-die concealer, and if I were to spend the rest of my life wearing only one product, I’d choose this hands down. It is especially great covering dark circles and making me look like a functioning human being. I need to buy a new one, but like the Better Skin concealer, I can find it at the drugstore or the supermarket, so I’ll get it soon.

Now for the products I’m currently using.

NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer

This thing is like magic in a pot. It is super thick, but it does justice to its name. I mean, with this you’ll get to easily cover up just about any darkness or redness in your face. I use this under my eyes and as a regular concealer when I’m wearing a ton of makeup, like on special occasions, but I usually put it on my eyelids as eye primer.

Hey Honey Trick and Treat Cream Concealer 

I got this in an Ipsy glam bag and I’m absolutely in love. I thought the packaging would be inconvenient for me, but so far it hasn’t been, I just put some on my hand and then apply it to my under eyes or redness using a sponge or a brush. It is more liquid than other concealers I’ve tried, but at the same time, it’s more full coverage, so I’m keeping it for special occasions, and not just for everyday use.

Aurora x Ipsy Pro Cover-Up Concealer 

I don’t like ranting about makeup or beauty products because I genuinely want to like everything I buy or get. I think that’s why I left this concealer for last; it’s the only fail out of all the products I’ve hauled and reviewed in this post, but I need to share my thoughts on it. I talked about this concealer when I did my August glam bag unboxing and I was kind of harsh then, but now I’m going to be brutal. This concealer is horrible because it literally does nothing. When you apply it, you see this nice, pigmented shade with a promising texture, and then you go to blend it and it’s chaos. I’m not kidding, this dries down in the weirdest way, and then if you try to blend it with a sponge or a brush, it’ll crack and you’ll be able to see the strokes as well as basically every skin cell in your face. I seriously need to buy a new concealer for everyday looks.

Do you use concealer? Which is your favorite one and why? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Sunday!

Working on the Three Little Pigs

Hello and happy Saturday. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably already planning your lessons for after the break, and looking for cool ideas of things you can do in your classroom. Personally, I’m a sucker for themes, so I like to pick one and work around it for some time, whether it’s a week or a month or something in between. Recently with my Kinder babes we worked on The Three Little Pigs, and I want to share what we did with you. Let’s get started, shall we?

We started out with a math activity, so I played the song Ten Little Piggies and we practiced counting from one to ten and then backwards. I then told my boys to draw ten pigs (I gave them each a sheet of pink paper), and they glued them to a large piece of paper, so we had all of our piggies in the same poster.

I told my students the story of the Three Little Pigs, and using the pictures, we arranged

 

the events of the story in chronological order. I took the images from this blog. I did it as a retelling activity, so I showed my boys each picture, asked them what was going on and then had them tell me where they’d locate it. We came up with this poster.

I placed both posters on our English board, as well as these images of the pigs, and the material each used to build their house. That way we practiced vocabulary. I don’t know where I got the images from, but you can get a finger puppet worksheet at Education.com.

 

 

 

 

 

I also added a section with the three pigs and the wolf, and this would come in handy later on, you’ll see why.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On another class, we worked on characters, so I made teams of four, and each student had to decorate either a pig or the wolf. Then, each group made a mini poster with their characters. You can get those finger puppets here.

 

 

 

The class when we did the Hidden Object activity was probably my boys’ favorite. I gave each this worksheet by Tim van de Vall, and I also displayed it on the smart TV. I had one of those hand pointers, so I encouraged the boys to use it to indicate where each object was. They then looked in their own page and circled each object.

 

 

 

If you know me, you know I’m a lover of centers, so of course they were part of our unit.

I teamed up my boys, and gave each team one type of material for them to “build” a house. Team one had cards.

 

 

 

 

Team two had sticks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And team 3 had building blocks.

Each team had ten minutes to try and build their house before they had to switch.

That was it for the Three Little Pigs, at least for now. What are other activities on this topic that could work with K? Let me know in the comments!

Happy teaching!

GoT Season 1

NETFLIX TALK-.png

Hello and happy Friday. I finally joined the Game of Thrones party (yay!), and I wanted to share my thoughts of season 1 with you. Now, these thoughts are very general, so I think they apply to other seasons as well, which is why I’m not going to write follow-up posts about the seasons to come. Let’s get started, shall we?

I remember that a few years ago I tried to start watching this show on a plane and couldn’t. After the first five minutes, I was totally done with it. Yes, it’s a shocking way to start a series, to say the least, but it’s also very mysterious and kind of slow-paced. I get that, given that first impression some people will not want to keep watching, but give it a shot and you won’t regret it, trust me.

Now, sometimes when I watch shows I’m doing something else, like coloring or getting stuff ready for school, but I can’t do that with Game of Thrones. I mean, you have to be 100% focused on what’s going on, at least during the first few episodes so that you know who’s who.

I believe that whoever starts watching Game of Thrones knows that this show is super graphic, but in case you live under a rock, let me tell you: GoT is absolutely explicit in terms of sex and violence. I still have to close my eyes at times, especially when animals or young children get hurt, but I’m getting used to how graphic the show is. If you don’t like stuff like that, then don’t watch because you’re not going to enjoy the show at all.

So yes, I know that this sounded like a major warning instead of an invitation to watch the show, but if you decide you want to give it a try and don’t care about the complex family trees, violence or sex scenes, then you’re going to love the show. And I mean, how can you not? I love Daenerys, I think Arya is a badass, and I totally get why people love Jon Snow.

The books written by George R.R. Martin are in my wishlist, but for now I’ll stick to watching the whole show. If you are watching it or have watched it, please let me know what you think about it (no spoilers, please!).

Happy Friday!

Underhyped Movies I Totally Love

Laser Hair Removal.png

Hello and happy Thursday. I feel like December is the best time to sit in front of your T.V or computer and watch a ton of movies. Personally, since I started reading at the pace I do, I’ve discovered that I don’t like watching movies as I did before. I’m pickier now when it comes to what I watch, but there are some movies I adore and feel that don’t get the hype they should.

Today I’m sharing with you three movies I love, and I’ll give you my reasons to watch them. Let’s get started, shall we?

-Oz The Great and Powerful

Out of the three, this is the movie I watched most recently (actually re-watched, but I realized I’d watched it before like halfway through) and it easily became one of my favorites. I think you could easily confuse this movie for a children’s one, but in my opinion it’s meant for young adult audiences.

It is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, and it focuses on how the wizard arrived to Oz and became its powerful ruler. I absolutely love the balance between the magic, fantastic stuff, and the exploration of human issues. I think that last part is what really made me love the movie and realize it’s not really for young kids, the fact that it explores, and at times criticizes the human condition in a way that has you questioning your own thoughts and actions.

-Maleficent

I’ve watched this movie twice at, I think, two crucial moments of my life, and I must say I liked it way better the first time. I still love this movie, of course, but I think much of it’s appeal comes from the first time you watch it, the novelty of it all. It is a prequel to the Sleeping Beauty, which is my all time favorite Disney princess movie, and it focuses on Maleficent.

Throughout the movie we realize that Maleficent is not all that bad, she’s actually just really angry, and that the king wasn’t as nice and generous as he appears to be. We learn that Maleficent is not really a witch but a fairy, and again, we see how some issues related to human relations are explored.

I know many children have watched this movie, and I’m pretty sure it’s advertised as a children’s movie, but again, I feel adults will really get the true meaning of this story, which goes beyond just letting us know what was Maleficent’s life like before becoming the villain of the Sleeping Beauty.

-Puss in Boots 

Finally, there’s Puss in Boots, which is a spinoff of Shrek. Here we learn about the Puss in Boots’ life before meeting Shrek, and let me tell you, this story is better than Shrek the 3rd and Shrek 4 Ever After combined. Yes, that’s how the last two Shrek movies are called, but I’m sure you didn’t know that.

It’s a funny movie, and it still includes characters from children’s stories and nursery rhymes like Shrek did, but in terms of the message of the story, it goes beyond what our green friend and his adventures taught us.

I think if you’re a teacher, a parent, or a caretaker, you could be able to teach a lot of lessons to your kids with this movie. It explores family relations and how to deal with being betrayed by somebody you love, and also how to act on certain situations or before people who could be negative influences. So, in that way you can really have a discussion on many topics that are key for children as they grow up.

There we have them, three underhyped movies I love. I know I’ll find more along the way, so be sure to check this blog regularly and you might find a follow-up post. In the meantime, tell me some of the movies you love but that deserve more hype.

Happy Thursday!

Let the Rant Begin

Hello and happy Wednesday. You know when you start reading a book and you think it has potential, but then it totally disappoints you and then you are literally mad at the book for making you get your hopes up?

Well, the audiobook of Let Love In by Melissa Collins caused that exact reaction in me, and I want to share with you every reason why this book was such a big flop. Let’s get started, shall we?

My first couple of comments were actually good because like I said, I thought I’d really like this book. I always appreciate when a story is told from different points of view, so that’s something that gave Let Love In happy points from the start. I also liked the fact that even though there were sad moments, it wasn’t a sappy and melodramatic novel. Mind you, I’d just listened to the first chapter then, and I’d definitely come to change my mind on that bit.

I know I’m going to have a problem with a book when I have problems with the characters, and I didn’t like Jay, Maddie’s ex, from the beginning. He was so stereotypical that I couldn’t like or even understand him. But of course, that’s not a problem because the minute Maddie steps foot in her new college she meets Reid. And she develops feelings for him within ten seconds. Ugh.

We all know I like my healthy dose of mommy porn, right? But I like to know I’m reading mommy porn before opening the book. I don’t those kinds of surprises, but of course Melissa Collins gave me one of those when Reid and Maddie had their first encounter. That’s not it, though, because of course when you have a crush on someone you act half the time like you hate them. Obviously that’s how real life works.

Here’s the real problem I had with this book, the one I often have with books like this. It totally promotes chauvinistic behaviors in both men and women. How, you ask? Well, the fact that a guy goads about sleeping with a girl (when he didn’t) and then gets punched in the face by another guy because “that’s not how you should talk about MY girl,” is one example. Girls, women, are nobody’s property, they’re not objects, and men shouldn’t talk about them like young children talk about their toys. Also, the “girls” in this book always like to dress “slutty” so that guys notice them. Really?

And let’s not forget about Reid, our handsome main character, who was a total dickhead to every other woman until Maddie comes along because she “deserves” it. Wait, so, other women didn’t deserve to be treated like actual human beings because you didn’t really have feelings for them? Oh, right, and then you tell us you want to be a counselor…Maybe, Reid, you should see a counselor yourself and work your issues against women.

It wasn’t only Reid’s character what bothered me, but actually the guy who played him. I could’ve been just me, but I felt like he sounded too old for a college guy and that made me cringe really hard.

I really despise authors that mock other authors and then go ahead and do the exact same thing they were making fun of. In Let Love In, Melissa Collins mocks bits of the 50 Shades series, but then her plot is in ways very similar to the story. What are you playing at, Melissa?

There was this teeny tiny redeeming bit when Reid tells his brother’s story, and I honestly felt proud of that plot twist. Of course, though, that bit is then ruined by Maddie pulling the jealous girlfriend act, and a super predictable ending, and of course, a super cliché cliffhanger. Like I’m honestly going to continue reading this series.

That’s not it, though. Oh no. Let’s talk about sex, babies, and how sex works for average women. I know your partner can be the sexiest man alive and oh so good at what he’s doing, and I know that it might feel extra special the first few times you have sex. And I know I wasn’t going to say anything about the sexy bits in this story, but, dear Maddie, you can’t physically come within .2 seconds. That’s not how the female anatomy works.

Okay, so that was my rant, and as always when I share a review of a book I didn’t like, I want to ask you for recommendations of similar books that you actually enjoyed. Let me know in the comments.

Happy reading!

Love, Miss Camila

 

Netflix Talk: Degrassi Season 4

NETFLIX TALK-.png

Hello and happy Tuesday. Do you have a day or afternoon off and want to binge watch a show on Netflix? Well, Degrassi is the perfect show if you don’t want something super profound, but especially if you want to watch a show that’s super fast paced and that you can go over in a day or less.

I’m going to talk about season 4, which is the one I most recently watched, but I encourage you to watch the first ones. Trust me, it’ll take you a few hours. I kid you not, two minutes after the season began, there was already a lot of drama going on, and I was super into it. I’m sorry, but there’s a part of me that enjoys watching teenage/high school drama and thinking “well, good thing I no longer have to experience that.”

There are characters who I instantly hated from the moment they made their first appearance, like Esme, and there are others, like Frankie, whom I’ve grown to despise. Put them both together, and you’ll get me rolling my eyes for full scenes.

Now, of course, there are characters I adore. Miles is great for many reasons, and in season 4 he proves to be a true sex god with an amazing body. Saad, who’s introduced in season 3 is a total cutie and I rooted for him throughout the season.

Something that surprised me in a positive way is that Lola, who is from Argentina, actually speaks Spanish (with an accurate Argentinian accent!). As a Latina, it bothers me when characters are cast for roles in which they have to speak Spanish, but they do so poorly. The actress who plays Lola, at least in that tiny part where her character speaks in Spanish, does so with a flawless accent, and made my Latina heart super happy.

Every season, there are certain issues that are discussed as part of the plot. In this season, issues like feminism (what it is, and what it’s not), and gender identity were discussed, specifically because one of the characters feels like they don’t belong in the gender category they’d been assigned at birth. Also, given the terrorist attacks that took place in different European countries, this issue, too, was discussed, as well as the way people started to think about Muslims after these attacks.

So yeah, I guess this show does make you think about stuff and reflect how our young people should be taught about current issues, but it’s still bubbly and light in general, which is great for a day of binge watching.

Have you watched Degrassi: Next Class? What do you think about it? Are there any other shows like this one you’d recommend? Let me know!

Happy Tuesday!

Love, Miss Camila
