Hello 2021!By: Shreya Mishra
The new year has barely begun and we already have so much to talk about! Schools are reopening, WhatsApp has been in a bit of a soup, Virushka baby is here and a teen who has just made history! Let’s get started!
Back to school
Schools in Delhi reopened this week! After 10 months of being away that must feel awesome! Well for some of us at least, hehe!
But this is definitely going to be a bittersweet experience. We have a chance to be with our friends again but since the schools have currently opened only for classes 10 and 12, they come with board exams riding on our heads!
All the best to our Boarders! Stay safe and keep calm!
What’s up with WhatsApp!
Well well well, how the tables turn! As a perfect example of irony, WhatsApp recently became a victim to it’s very own group chat rumour chain when WhatsApp decided to bring a change in it’s privacy policies. But as soon as this news hit the market, the group chats and meme pages became abuzz with gossips of it ruining our privacy altogether. So much so that WhatsApp had to take matter into its own hands and announce that that’s all they were, rumours!!
Be it the front page of newspapers or WhatsApp status, they were everywhere. But as you know social media can be ruthless sometimes so finally they decided to give the users some time to understand and accept the new policy before they HAVE to click accept in order to use it.
And even though we don’t properly understand the policies yet, online privacy is a very big deal and you should be very careful while using sites and apps that might exploit it. To learn more about online safety, click here.
Virushka is in town
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were blessed with a beautiful baby girl on January 11. We received the good news through a post that the new papa posted requesting everyone to respect their privacy. And because of this request nobody has seen her yet but you know she’s gonna be the cutest of ‘em all.
I mean look at her parents. The iconic captain Kohli and the talented Anushka Sharma. I’m already jealous! Plus she already has the coolest girl squad ready with Dhoni, Raina and Rohit Sharma’s daughter so we know nobody’s gonna mess with her ;) #girlpower all the way!
Another teen makes history!
If you’re anywhere near music these days, you MUST have heard of Olivia Rodrigo’s new song ‘Driver's License’ and all the drama surrounding it. Well, the 17 year old singer-songwriter has broken several records and is nowhere near done yet. It’s a pop/breakup song and has been topping charts here and there. The song has been playing non stop in our heads and it’s not just us!
She has been appreciated and recognised by the biggest of musicians for this song including Taylor Swift and Niall Horan. And you know it’s a big deal when she’s both a Swiftie and a Directioner!!!
Imagine going from writing fan fictions about One Direction to getting advice on texts from one of the members. And we could clearly see how ecstatic she was when Taylor Swift commented on her post. To state the obvious, the song has been a super duper hit and we couldn’t be prouder of our teenage overachiever. So plug in your headphones, and take a listen if you haven’t yet. It’s a bomb!
We teens are pretty cool! Aren't we!
