    The cause and end of Lord Voldemort

    Analyse what caused Lord Voldemort’s creation and the cause of his death. There are many key things that played a role in his life and death, not just Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived.

    • I'm always happy to see an analysis of the development of villains. Voldemort is an interesting one to discuss nature versus nurture as both are so negative as to position him easily as the antagonist. – SaraiMW 7 days ago

    Antagonist: An Analysis of Lucy (The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo)

    Analyse how the protagonist, Lucy, is simultaneously the antagonist of the YA novel, The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo. Lucy is an egocentric female lead, based on many actions she goes by in the novel. She also lacks good communication with her love interests, ultimately leading to the tragic demise of someone.

    Television Series Better Call Saul's References to Real-Life Issues

    Analyze how Better Call Saul’s characters portray problems that people in real-life may deal with everyday. For instance, the talented lawyer who will not be hired by anyone due to lack of good references (or jealousy from those you least expect).

    Not only is Better Call Saul a television series that hooks you instantly with drama, it is a series that makes the viewer see everything is not black and white, sometimes there are grays in between.

    • I definitely agree with the fact that BCS' characters do portray problems! One thing I'd like to suggest is that you narrow down two or three characters as opposed to staying general. Perhaps even write about one character and how they portray issues/problems. – stefanjovanovic 1 month ago

    I did not mean that simply by using social media, someone is automatically an uninviting or shallow person. I wanted to reinforce the notion that using social media is both good and bad, depending on the choices one makes.

    I respect your definition of what is a healthy relationship. Of course not all relationships that are explicitly posted on social media are unhealthy. My point is that not every relationship is the same. You say that “…by my definition, those who choose to announce their relationships are healthy since both accept the terms and behaviors and find pleasure in them.” – I disagree because, as stated in the article, there can be couples or even just one partner that feel(s) insecure about the relationship, which causes them a huge need to post about their relationship for validation from the public. Again, not every couple is this way, but there is a good amount out there.

    The possibility of our future holograms is both cool and scary. Personally, I would not like to talk to the hologram version of a friend, because I do not consider it to have her/his essence. It’d just be a projection coming from technology. If holograms were to exist and make up for walking to see our nearest neighbor, as you said, it be would unwise because walking is vital to our health. It could, however, help us if our friend is in another country. But ultimately, I believe it is always better to experience something with someone in person than through technology. You mention, “What more could anyone need when the illustrative being is there, as well as the soul of an individual being there in real time”, as I said earlier, I do not think the exact soul in there is a hologram. Also, I believe couples would rather be together in person, than through technology. Friends, I would imagine, would prefer to be physically together to watch a movie laying back on a good seat, than projecting themselves in front of a machine.

    I do not mind your extensive comment, I am happy to hear what you have to say!

    Your welcome, and I am very glad you enjoyed reading it! There have undoubtedly been a lot of people that have found themselves wasting valuable time on social media, and could have been doing other, meaningful things. I believe it is great to have a strict balance for youth; how long they’re allowed on social media, are the old enough to have an account, etc.

    While I do not think social media’s biggest #1 issue is its impact on self-esteem and depression, I’m glad you brought that up! I do believe those are perhaps among the top 5 negative impacts social media has, and would make for another great topic to write about! I did not delve a lot into self-esteem and depression, because I wanted the primary focus to be on social media’s impact on relationships.

    Haha, I couldn’t agree more that the cell phone is the “uninvited guest” at dinner, among other social gatherings. It is a scary thing to see in people’s hands during those times, because it makes you realize how unsociable social media is making many people.

    It’s also negatively impacting younger generations’ social behavior. There have been many incidents where I’ve seen parents give their cell phone to their child, as long as it stops their tantrums.

    You bring up a great point of view, that we can’t solely blame social media as the reason why relationships seem shallow these days. However, I do give specific examples of how there are well-established relationships with couples that don’t find the need to post about their feelings for each other, etc. and they are quite happy together. In terms of the old-fashioned romanticized forms of communications (e.g., giving flowers, a box of chocolates), these are actions that the media tends to show, as you said. While we may not see all couples demonstrating these things online, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t doing it. You brought up another intriguing point; there could be improvements for social media platforms that make it more romantic, in the future. I am interesting in hearing what you believe those improvements could be.

    It’s a tricky thing, for the user to decide how they want to be affected by all of it, because everyone is different so each person can be affected differently by something. For instance, 2 people with a high and low self-esteem will each react differently if they are reached out to by their crush online (example).
