So last month my roommate introduced me to Snapchat. I was immediately hooked. What an ingenious way to send pics of yourself or others and not worry that it can be shared.
Snapchat is an app that allows you to take a pic of whatever you want, send it for a few seconds, then have it dissapear. Risky pictures constantly get people in trouble, and its high time that an app was made that allows people the ability to send a picture without having to worry if it'll later be used against them. You can also insert text and use a coloring pencil once youve taken a picture.
Sexting can now easily be replaced with a dissapearing picture. The next time Tiger Wood's and his multiple mistresses want to have fun via phones, he won't have to worry about them turning and showing everyone their pictures.

Review: This film is the epitome of a puppy-love romance. However, it is completely one-sided with Aimee (Shailene Woodley) falling head over heels for her first boyfriend named Sutter, the alcoholic party boy (Miles Teller). The movie started off very slow, but it was still entertaining because of Sutter’s quirkiness and funny lines that are so typical from a high school kid not wanting to enter the reality of adulthood. I’m sure all of you know at least one person that constantly dwells on the past and only lives in the now, despite having to grow up because the best years for them was back in high school. This coming-of-age storyline does a fantastic job in capturing the emotions and behaviors of every “first love”, with all of its lovey-dovey moments. Even the awkward moment of having sex for the first time was portrayed true to life in this film. Three words that would sum up The Spectacular Now are “challenge, hardship, and future”.
I give The Spectacular Now one thumb up for an adorable portrayal of a first-love that was relatable and not cheesy. And hey! If Oprah loved it, it must be good right?!
