T is for Take a Hint from Victorious

Victorious was one of those shows I’d end up watching on Nickleodeon when I was home from Uni for the holidays and my mum was at work. I was so lazy when I returned home for the holidays.

I remember watching this episode and being like “Wow!” I’d not seen anything like it in a kids/teen show before. A couple of girls getting fed up with boys who won’t leave them alone, who kept flirting with them and not taking no for an answer, and then these girls called them out on it and showed everyone, the boys, other characters and the viewers that these boys were harassing them, and it was not ok.

Take a Hint is such a catchy, yet powerful song and I love how Victoria Justice’s and Elizabeth Giles’ voices work together. This is another song that features on my Kick-Ass Inspirational Songs playlist and it well deserves a place there as it’s a song that unconsciously gets me to stand taller and be more confident in myself. As I’ve mentioned this playlist so much during this challenge, it’s here on Spotify if you’re interested.

“You asked me what my sign is, and I told you it was stop!” is a fantastic line and it’s my favourite from a song with so many great moments.

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Ten Songs I Wish Were Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week – I’m thinking I might not take part every week but just see if a week takes my fancy. This week is all about music and books and I’ve taken the idea of songs you’d like to see turned into a book and run with it.

You Don’t Own Me – Grace feat. G-Eazy

I could imagine this song becoming a book about a young person who gets out of an abusive relationship and realises that they deserve to be happy. Side note: this is currently my favourite song.

Tonight Tonight – Hot Chelle Rae

This would be like a party book. Maybe the story is all set over one night, crazy things happen and the lead isn’t sure if they’ll ever get that job or into that college that they desperately want but it doesn’t matter that one night. (more…)
