With the second episode of the 5th season of American Horror Story airing tonight I figured I’d recap and review last week’s premier. Let me start off by saying I am not a fan of scary things, I actually hate them. I refuse to go to Fright Fest with my friends at Six Flags, I’ve never seen Insidious or The Conjuring and I don’t plan on it.

The problem with society is that we are brainwashed to believe that our differences are flaws, or imperfections. Who is to define perfection and imperfection in the first place? When confronted about insecurities, Jenna Filippoli, sophomore at Rowan University, stated her own internal conflicts. “I feel like my biggest flaw is my complexion. I’ve never had the clearest skin, and I always compare myself to the other girls because it seems like everyone else has flawless complexions.” READ MORE

  7. Colors are not just colors. Blue is no longer blue when you see it. Its cobalt, turquoise, the color of a Dasani bottle. The fact of the matter is, you no longer use the generalized name of a color when describing things outside of the writing world. “He had chocolate brown, ruffled hair and emerald green eyes in the shape of almonds.” Or something like that. 6. Books and other authors are sometimes your enemy. READ MORE
