Favorite TV Series on Netflix!

I have two TV series on Netflix that I really enjoyed watching. I watch Netflix on the daily and have went threw quite a few series but my favorite so far are Friends and The Vampire Diaries (more so Friends than TVD). I just finished Friends a few months ago with some friends. My girl Montana thought my friend Katie and I were absolutely crazy for never even seeing an episode of Friends ever before, so she has us watch the whole series again with her (even though we all live in different states). And let me say that i think one of my greatest accomplishments in life is knocking out those 10 seasons in just two months. I started watching The Vampire Diaries when it first came out on the CW in 2009. Since I was only nine at the time then I didn't really keep up with the series all that well and watched them all out of order. The Vampire Diaries was the show that my whole family would watch when it aired. We would record it and when my dad came home from work, we would all sit in the living room with our snacks and just watch TVD. It got kinda hard to watch later on because it´s definitely one of those shows that you have to watch every single episode, in order, otherwise your completely lost.

Friends is a TV sitcom that has 10 seasons. The show is about 6 friends that live in New York and most live in the same apartment complex ( Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Ross, Joey and Chandler). If they are not at their favorite cafe Central Perk, you´ll most likely find them at Monica´s apartment. Monica is a chef, Joey is a struggling actor waiting for his big break, Rachel is a waitress, Ross is a paleontologist, Phoebe is a masseuse and musician on the side, and know one really knows what Chandler does for a living. It´s honestly such a funny show and i definitely recommend it.

The Vampire Diaries is a supernatural drama with 8 seasons. The show takes place in a fictional town in Virginia called Mystic Falls. It follows the life of a teenage girl Elena Gilbert, who has just lost her parents due to a car crash and is now being talking care of by her aunt Jenna. She becomes interested in the new guy in her class Stefan Salvatore, who is a vampire that dates back to the time Mystic falls was founded. In addition, the story lines revolve around the towns people like Elena's kid brother Jeremy, Tyler Lockwood, Matt Donovan, Elena's best friends Bonnie Bennett and Caroline Forbes, and the new history teacher/vampire hunter Alaric Saltzman. The town is ran by the original founding families which includes the Gilberts, Salvatores, Forbes, Fells, and Lockwoods. They secretly guard the town of mainly vampires with the occasional werewolves, witches, hybrids, etc I really loved the first 6 seasons but the last two have been kinda rough to be honest. It makes me really sad the the show is ending after 8th season. Just blogging about the series makes me want to watch them all over again.

Feflection on Place and Culture

          I am very proud of my religion. I am apart of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints (aka LDS or Mormon). I have a firm testimony of my beliefs and I will always stand my standards and do what the Lord has commanded of me. I was born into the church and was baptized at the age of eight. I have always enjoyed attending church on the Sabbath and learning about the Lords work. I am currently attending seminary before school and we are studying the New Testament. Last year we learned about the Old Testament and I gain more knowledge and a better understanding that almost everything symbolizes the sacrifice of the only begotten.
         One thing I would change is how people see the 'Mormons'. Most of the time when we are brought up, we are not put in at good light. Some people think we are a cult which is not true. Some people think that we wear magical underwear which again is not true. And for some odd reason some people think that we kill bunnies which gain is so not true. Then when we want to explain the truth they don't want to hear it. People should soften their hearts and allow to explain the truth.

About Me

           I am a sophomore at FUHS this year. I live in Fortuna, California on the coast of Humboldt county. I moved to Fortuna the summer before eighth grade and have made many close friends over the past couple of years. I am very excited for the school year and hope to do good in all my classes. As of right now my favorite class is chemistry. I am on the girls varsity soccer team at Fortuna high and play as a defender and on occasion I play offense. I really like my class at Fortuna high because we all seem to be such close friends with one another. this year I am really looking forward to homecoming, attending the school games and creating new memories with my close friends.
          My favorite thing to do when I can is reading. When I first moved to Fortuna and started eighth grade I was not a social butterfly so I pretty much was reading constantly to help with my nervousness of being the new girl. My favorite color if blue and I love movies. The last two summers my friend and I went to go see at least 2 movies a week. It really helped that I only lived two blocks away from the theater in town. I really enjoy traveling with my family. This last summer I went camping for two weeks, then straight to Chicago, then to Oregon for youth conference. I love making new friends so I'm excited to start this blog.
