A resent study show that drinking diet coke with any meal will help you lose weight. This gives new meaning to the "eat all you want and still lose weight."


A study conducted by Dr. Eyeyumwong at the university of Tamps gathered 30 overweight women and let them eat anything they wanted. To 15 of the women he gave diet coke and to the other one he gave them water.


All of these wonderful ladies ate their hearts out and surprisingly enough the women who drank the diet coke actually lost weight. Dr. Eyeyumwong concludes, "You may eat anything your hear desires, as long as you drink diet coke you will be fine."


Rebecca Stillness, one of the subjects to the test tells us, "Every time someone talks about my eating I'll just tell them, you know what it is okay because I have diet coke so don't worry!"


Remember if you are ever on a diet always order diet coke.

Skillet - Circus For A Psycho (Rise 2013)

1984 Winston's Circus

Psycho, go, go, go
Psycho, here we go

You push until I break
And the anger turns to rage
Why can’t you just leave me alone
Got your finger on the trigger
You think that you’re the winner
You’re gonna get kicked off of your throne

You think you’re gonna hurt me
Get ready to get dirty
You created this beast inside
Pull the noose tighter
And lift a little higher
Because you’re killing me slow
I ain’t ready to die

Killing me slow but I ain’t ready to die

Tonight, get ready for a fight
So now you know it’s time
To ride my circus for a psycho
Round and round we go, look out below
Because I want off this
I want off this

Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, go, go, go)
Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, here we go)
Psycho, here we go

Everybody down
Gonna burn it to the ground
Can’t keep this beast inside
Never again, never again
You’re killing me slow but I ain’t ready to die

Killing me slow but I ain’t ready to die

Tonight, get ready for a fight
So now you know it’s time
To ride my circus for a psycho
Round and round we go, look out below
Because I want off this
I want off this

Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, go, go, go)
Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, here we go)

You think you’re gonna hurt me
Get ready to get dirty
Gonna burn this place to the ground

Tonight, get ready for a fight
So now you know it’s time
To ride my circus for a psycho
Round and round we go, look out below
It’s time to ride my circus for a psycho

Never again, never again
You’re killing me slow but I ain’t ready to die
Round and round we go, look below
Because I want off this
I want off this

Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, go, go, go)
Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, here we go)

Circus for a psycho
Circus for a psycho
(Psycho, here we go)



This song is called Circus for a Psycho and it is by skillet. This song starts of by saying you push me until I break and the anger turns to rage. This part explains how Winston felt when he was being tortured by O'Brien. The next part says you have your finger on the trigger you think you're the winner but you're gonna get kick off your throne. While Winston was being beat when they told him that 2+2=5 he kept holding 4. They said they were going to kill him but he still thought he was going to win. The second verse says you think you're gonna hurt me get ready to get dirty you created the beast inside of me. It's true when it comes to the book 1984. Many people rebel against big brother but they can't always get what they want. They created this. Most of this song relates to when Winston was taken by the party and beat and tortured to get him to finally think they way the party wanted him to. Another verse says you're killing me slow but I'm not ready to die. Just like when Winston was being beat and they were giving him drugs that's exactly what was going on. They were basically killing him but he was not ready to die. He didn't want to think the way they thought. If this book were a movie this song would be perfect to play while Winston is being tortured and the party is trying to get him to think the way they want him to.

Media Literacy

In the beginning I thought social media was fun and harmless. Sure many people got hurt and friendships and relationships ended, yet I still didn't think it was that harmful. Now I see how your privacy settings are basically just little ear ticklers and don't mean anything. Now I see how commercials have changed and how they use women as object. It's crazy how they capture your attention. Now I worry about what I post on facebook and the instagram. When I see a commercial I think twice about it. In this class I've learned a lot. I learned how our world is slowly becoming a dystopian society. Before I never really noticed it but with all this facebook things and going to MEPS and they knew everything with just my fingerprint kind of scared me. WIth only my fingerprint the people at MEPS knew where I live they knew my mom's name they had my full criminal history. They just knew everything about me. I would not be surprised that in the future this world or at least this country becomes similar to the society in the book 1984. Before I walked into this class I was there thinking that oh we are going to be writing a bunch of essays, reading books, doing grammar work and all that good stuff. I was amazed at how the first thing we talked about was social media. When the first week went by I thought to myself, "You know what this might actually be the first time I like language arts." In the end yes I did like this class because it was a lot of fun and we talked about things that interested me. I think this class is good the way it is. I like how despite it's not really literature we are learning about anymore I still like it. I like how despite the changes there is still some literature. It is important that we continue to learn about literature, because it is something that is being forgotten. At this rate people won't know who Shakespeare was or any of his work.
