Intro to Vonni’s Advice

Hello All,

Vonni’s Advice column is all about the youth.  I will be giving you advice on everything from your crush, to how to talk to your mom and/or dad about sex. This column is for you to express yourself and have no judgement what so ever.  In a society that is full of judgment and television shows that glamorize many bad things, how is a person supposed to make a good decision? No, I am not a professional but this is advice that over the years I have seen worked very well.  I have helped many of my friends, family, and strangers make good and better decisions.

I want this column to be interactive, so I would like to add that you may send me any type of questions to vonnieb905@gmail.com and I will keep your name anonymous and answer them every last Sunday of the month. This column will be called Ask Vonni! If there is something that you would like for me to address in a future blog, feel free to leave a message as well.  I have a lot of advice to give and I love to do it, there is nothing you can ask me that will shock me.  The remaining Sundays out of the month, I will posting blogs and information about a diverse amount of topics, and topics that you ask for me to cover. I look forward to helping each and everyone one of you.

Peace and Love, Vonni

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Movie

If you enjoy vampires being the bad guys, go see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. The movie was a bloody treat. The president that was called Honest Abe was anything but honest. He lied to everybody about being a vampire hunter and he lost a lot that he valued most because he killed vampires. If you want a movie with rare action, go see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Out of five stars I gave Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter:

Like the book, Abraham Lincoln’s mother dies by a vampire and he dedicates his whole life on making sure every vampire is killed. Even though the book and the movie have the same general idea, the movie was much different from the book. If you read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith, you would be like me in the movie theater watching and thinking that some scenes that were in the book didn’t happen in the movie, or they definitely changed other scenes. Even though the movie was not like the book, it was still enjoyable. If you didn’t read the book, you’ll think it is an action packed thrill ride. It made you feel like you was a part of the action and history that took place during that time period. You start to root for Lincoln and his sidekicks while watching this film.

The special effects that were added to the movie were also good. The vampires in the movie aren’t the same vampires we see in Twilight and Vampire Diaries. These vampires didn’t have fangs on two teeth alone, but had a whole mouth full of them. They look more like shark teeth. They were far scarier.

The movie had great action but the storyline was off. I believe the movie would have been great if it followed the book’s storyline. Instead of having all action packed scenes, they should have added some scenes about the history of Abe Lincoln. Overall, this movie is acceptable enough for book fans and new fans.

App of the Week: Logos Quiz Game

You ever have one of those moments when you see an image suddenly pop up while your driving and automatically you want that product that’s being promoted to you without the brands name being mentioned? Well, I know I do. Especially when it comes to fast food restaurants, particularly Burger King.

Logos Quiz Game

What does this App do?

Developed by Mateusz Klaczak and stated on Google Play’s Android Market:

“This is logo quiz game full of fun that consists on guessing the names of hundreds of logos from different companies. Compare your answers with your friends. Challenge them to see who know more logos!

We are continuously surrounded by company logos, we can see them on TV, walking on the street, at important events… everywhere! But, how many of them can you recognize?

Guess the logos of different brands (companies, products, etc.).

In Logo Quiz game every found logo will increase the score. Higher logo level(difficulty) = more points(higher score). Try to guess all logos!

Where can I find this App?

Google Play App Store!

But there are similar games that can also be found in the iTunes App store, if you don’t own an android, that have the same concept that this game has.

How much does this App cost?

Free

Would I use this app?

I downloaded this game Tuesday morning. It’s so much fun. I’m surprised at how much logos I know. It’s wild how companies place these images for us to remember though we may not buy their products. I guess that’s what they want us to do. If we’re put in a predicament where we may need to buy something, these few that we remember will come to mind.

Hide and I'll Seek: Lockdown

The police was blocking the doors and the windows. Each student at Portland Valley High was looking out to see their fellow classmate, Tavon Anderson, get dragged into a police car. Nobody was surprised, Tavon seem like the closet type. The one that would end up bombing the school before graduation. Tavon ending up stabbing another student.

The whole school was placed on lockdown. Every student was to stay in their classes until the principal had said that it is safe to leave. In room 236 Mr. Gliden didn’t care if his students left or not. He hated his job and the students. They didn’t care about doing their work so he decided he didn’t care either. But when it came to projects, he wanted them done and that’s all he really ask his student to always do.

Mr. Gliden sat on his desk while he watched his student accomplishing one of their last projects of the year. His room was one of the most bleak and boring rooms in the entire school, covered in grey with only a few posters and maps of the United States. Mr. Gliden also hated when his students chose to do their work at the last-minute or when they just sat in his class doing nothing. He walked around the room to see if everybody was doing their projects and he found the slackers of his AP Class as usual doing nothing.

“Mr. Aston and Ms. Marcena, as usual, you plan not to do one of my projects again?” Mr. Gliden asked loud enough for the class to hear and now everyone was paying attention. Aston saw everybody looking, he took his feet off the desk and took out his earphones. While Marcena gave Mr. Gliden an ugly glare.

“Its Mace. Mr Gliden, to tell you the truth, I’m not from America and I don’t plan to be here forever. So what’s the point of me doing the project? I bet my partner agrees.” Mace announced even louder than Mr. Gliden. Aston also didn’t care if he did the project or not. He had a C and it was good enough for him.

“Well, Ms. MARCENA, you and your partner’s project will reflect your 4th quarter grade. Don’t do this project and you’ll fail. Also, that means that those lows C’s you had previously during the year, with an E as your quarterly grade, it can average out to a low D so I suggest you get to it.”  Mr Gliden said before he walked away.  As much as Mace and Aston hated history, They wanted to pass. Mace and Aston looked at each other for a long time until Aston got up.

“I’ll grab the markers and you can grab the posters.” Aston told Mace. Aston looked at Mace. The change that she went through was obvious. In 9th grade, she found out that her father was cheating on her mother and her mother ended up going crazy and had to live in a rehabilitation center on 24/7 suicide watch. Mace went from a straight A student to barely passing, having about 7 piercings (5 on her face; nose, Marilyn Monroe, surface by her eye, and lip. Her ear, cartilage and belly button were also pierced) and two tattoos (One saying “Family aint s****”  on her side and the another saying “Think about Cheating on me, I cut your little friend off” which includes a smiling face that was on her lower back). She was so gorgeous and innocent then. Now, she has pink and green highlights in her head.

“Sure, anything to avoid his face next year,” Mace yelled and then she went to get the posters.  Aston walked up to get the markers. As he grabbed the markers, he notice one of the girls that lived on that same street as him.

“Hey Roxie!” Aston greeted Roxie. She looked kind of surprised when she heard him say hello to her. She chuckled. Aston looked confused when she laughed.

“What?” he asked.

“Usually, slackers don’t talk to overachiever like me. They think I’m stuck up like your partner over there. I can recognize her glare anywhere.”

Aston didn’t have anything else to say and Roxie just left. Roxie was definitely an overachiever, she was number one in their class and was proud of it. She also was one of the most prettiest girls in the school. She had curly natural hair, light caramel skin, and grey eyes. Aston always had a crush on Roxie but he knew how much she cared about school. So he left it alone.

Aston walked back to Mace when he saw Warren, the only white guy in their school talking to Mace. Aston hated Warren and he avoided him at all cost. Though, Mace had to talk to Warren because they both had sessions with the guidance counselor about their family’s life situation.

“Got the markers.” He said as he sat down in his seat.

“Oh okay. Warren, how about you leave because we have to do our project now.” Mace told Warren.

“I don’t get why you choose this clown that doesn’t do his work. I chose Iggy and the nerd works hard.” Warren replied as he pointed over towards Iggy. Iggy always wear tracksuits and his glasses are too square and huge. Aston ignored Warren and just continued to look at the supplies.

“Other than Iggy, who is there, Peace? Peace is the dumbest person alive.” Warren turned to Peace and saw her coloring in the states, in a coloring book, while her partner was looking in the history books.

Aston hated when Mace would talk to Warren and they would insult people.

“Mace, can we get started?” Aston asked. She glared at him for a minute and then shooed Warren away. They began to start on their project.

“Attention students. After lockdown, you must go directly home. There will be no after school activities. Lockdown will be over in about…10 minutes. I will come back on the intercom to tell you when we will be dismissed.” The principle said on the intercom. Mr. Gliden’s students started to pack up their stuff.

“Wait up students, you know the posters are only one part of the project. You must still write a report on a particular part on American history and do the PowerPoint presentation. This is all due on Friday. So I suggest if you haven’t started that you try to get this done,” Mr. Gliden announced to his whole class.

Aston and Mace knew that Mr. Gliden was talking about him so they didn’t bother to talk.

“Lockdown is over. School is dismissed,” the principle said on the intercom. Mace grabbed her bag and then begin to walk out of the door. Aston followed after her.

“Mace, What are we going to do? I need to pass. My mother said that I have to get my usual grades or I won’t see my father. You know he lives in Texas and he promised me a job,” Aston explained to Mace as they walk toward the school’s door.

“Aston, I think family is overrated.” Mace replied.  Aston stopped in the middle of the hallway and looked at Mace like he was about to throw up. “But…since your my friend, I will help you. Now stop looking at me like that.”  Mace hooked her arms in Aston and started walking.

“Okay, what will be the best time for us to work on it then?” Aston asked.

“How about after school all this week? I mean, I have nothing else to do and I know you don’t.”

“Shut up and I’ll see you after school tomorrow.” Aston growled as he unhooked her arm and began to walk away.

Mace just smiled and began to walk home or anywhere else to avoid her father.

“This week is going to be a boring week,” Mace whispered.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is about how Lincoln’s life changes when he finds out that his mother was killed by a vampire hunter. After the horrible death of his mother, Lincoln begins an obsession with killing vampires. He begins to write a journal of his elaborate strategies of how he will hunt and kill all vampires. The reader begins to understands that Lincoln’s life changes because of his interactions with vampires and how vampires are involved in his childhood, his family, and his career.

Out of  A-F grade average, I gave the book a:

Although the book is fairly original and makes us believe one of the most important figures in history is a vampire hunter, a few moments in the book lacks entertainment.  What I was hoping for was complex details of the fighting scenes and vampire killing strategies, but they weren’t descriptive enough for me to fully understand how Lincoln was a hunter. The book simply brought me in because Lincoln  hunts vampires. The beginning of the book went slow enough that I was ready to get to the climax of the story. Despite the beginning of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter being a little slow, it was amazing how Smith was able to connect the history of the civil war towards vampires.

In the book, the reader discovers that Abraham Lincoln isn’t the only one who plays a historical figure in the fiction book. Other characters who appeared were historical figures such as Jefferson Davis, Mary Todd Lincoln, Stephen D. Douglas, and Edgar Allen Poe.

Overall, I recommend this fascinating read to all young readers everywhere. It’s an easy read for teenagers and an even easier read for adults. It tests your knowledge on how much you really know about Abraham Lincoln and the civil war.
