We laughed, we cried — we made one too many parodies of “What Makes You Beautiful.” But the time has finally come: the slow deterioration of the popular boy band One Direction, with the recent departure of one of its members, Zayn Malik. On March 25, Malik announced his decision to leave...

You know that scene in Sleeping Beauty, the animated one, not Maleficent, where the fairies fight over what color Aurora’s dress should be? And they change it back and forth from pink to blue and back again? That’s a pretty good representation of my weekend. On Saturday after my mom picked me...

It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t seen, or at least heard of, the documentary Blackfish. There has been plenty of debate about SeaWorld and the treatment of their animals. Since the airing of the documentary in 2013 on CNN, ticket sales have dropped, entertainers have canceled appearances, and...

After impatiently waiting for nine months to see the little person who kicked me non-stop, gave me horrid morning sickness, tossed my self esteem down the drain, and broke me out into hot flashes in the middle of winter, my beautiful son was born on Sunday, November 9 at 10:06 p.m.

I haven’t had a full night’s sleep since March 1st (at least). I have also realized that on last Wednesday, I spent more time in the theater than at my house. I have paint-stained clothes and bags under my eyes and a room that’s filled with things I carried into my room and dropped on the floor...

At the Grammy’s this year, Sam Smith won four awards and in his acceptance speech, he thanked his ex-boyfriend who broke his heart and because of him “he had four Grammys.” His speech was given high praise by all kinds of media and has become a staple on Tumblr. But as much as I enjoyed his...

Why Brian Williams? Why?

Filed under Blogs, Emma's Dilemma

If you had asked me a few weeks ago for a list of news reporters I most respected, the list would have been a long one. From Anderson Cooper to Soledad O’Brien, I could have gone on for a while. But now the list is one name shorter. I have completely lost respect for Brian Williams. Even if Brian...

Filed under Columns, Pop Culture in Perspective

When we think of Disney movies, riveting plot lines, enticing characters and pleasant musicals are what typically comes to mind. However, with Disney being part of much of this generation’s childhood and process of growing up, the more serious issues regarding the films are often overlooked — especially...

The Things That Make Me Happy

Filed under Blogs, Emma's Dilemma

After last week’s list of things that make me sad, I have been requested (by my mother) to do two other lists. This week will be a list of things that make me happy and then next week is a list of thing that make me mad. Most likely this week’s list will consist of things like food and next week’s...
