The people have spoken. Earlier today, some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry gathered in Los Angeles to recognize crowd favorites via the People's Choice Awards. Aside from the winners, we also had fun watching the show (thank you, Internet!) earlier. Here are five of our favorite moments from this year's awards show.

  1. Robert Downey, Jr. is awesome. RDJ took home two awards: Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Dramatic Actor. We, the people, love him but during his acceptance speech, we were reminded of the reason why. "This is perfect for me because I love people, I'm crazy about movies, and I prefer people who love my movies," he said onstage. "I want to eat you up and you're never going anywhere." Aww, isn't he such a sweetie?

  2. Chris Pratt refused to help his wife. We slightly expected this cameo since his wife, Anna Farris, is hosting this year's PCAs with her Mom co-star Allison Janney. However, we still feel happy that we got to see this heartthrob again (Jurassic Park, you are taking so looong!) acting like he wants to dismiss his wife's cry for help.

  3. Matt Bomer graced us with his presence. While his projects are geared towards older audiences, seeing Matt's handsome face today surely made our day. Oh, and he also won Favorite Cable TV Actor earlier.

  4. Ben Affleck is Favorite Humanitarian. Ben has been on a roll lately. After scoring rave reviews for Argo and appearing on the David Fincher-directed movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, we can't help but feel happy for him. It took him some time before he got the recognition he deserves, yet he remains humble and warm towards people.

  5. Your favorites won. Of course, we're glad that a few of your favorites took home trophies from the event. Ed Sheeran's X won Favorite Album, Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" was Favorite Song, Pretty Little Liars was Favorite Cable TV Drama, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift were named Favorite Male and Female Artists, The Big Bang Theory was Favorite TV Show and Favorite Network Comedy, and The Fault in Our Stars was named Favorite Dramatic Movie (we're not surprised for this, TBH). You can view the entire list of nominees and winners over here.

If you know me, and know me well, I am not the biggest fan of idyllic lifestyles. With a Type A personality, I act immediately upon whatever challenge that needs to be addressed. I actually enjoy keeping my mind preoccupied: doing university work in my favourite cafe then running errands around town, grocery shopping here, updating my accounts there, photocopying documents on the way down the street - all just in time before having a glass of champagne at the bar with my friends come evening.

And so, you could imagine my bewilderment when the next challenge to be faced was an extensive self-quarantine protocol. I didn’t know what to do when my greatest responsibility in this situation was to do nothing at all. My first few attempts to combat my consternation were very much rooted in distraction and imagination. My distractions involved conducting research, writing songs, calling family and friends, filming videos, and eating chocolate! My imaginations and fantasies were centred on travelling, shopping, even clubbing (which I rarely do) for when they find a cure to COVID-19. I did anything and everything that could be considered constructive in order to pass the time, mainly hoping I could just undertake the basic human necessities to survive - that is, eat and sleep the day through - until the next day comes, until the world is closer to becoming a better place, until quarantine ends, until my flight follows through, until I see my family and friends again.

Days in self-isolation and suspended flights turned to weeks and turned to months. By the third extension here in Spain where I study Fashion Business, I had to tell myself this shall be my new normal now, that I was blessed to be healthy, that I was tired of merely existing and missed what it was like to actually live - even if just within four walls. Little by little, I began to find significance in the simple occurrences of the day: the soft glare of the rising sun beaming golden streaks through my bedroom window upon waking up, the fragrance of freshly washed bed sheets that I had painstakingly hung to fit a relatively small clothes rack without crumpling them, the crunch and tanginess of warm toasted bread topped with raspberry marmalade, the buzzing sound of a phone call from home just waiting to be answered, to the caress of a fuzzy sweater to keep warm at night. I realised, “What pleasures to be enjoyed in the pause of slow living!” Through this continued pause, which I loathed at first, I began to appreciate each moment of the day rather than wish it would pass more swiftly, moments I had overlooked so often before the lockdown. I started to find that the challenge of self-isolation was never to pause both the regular routines of life as well as the positive emotions that came with these - as initially, I thought it meant to pause all happiness, so as to withstand a time of endurance in hopes for a better tomorrow, much like a form of delaying gratification. Life is just too fragile these days to delay gratification any further.

Life has paused, but it has not stopped. Believe that like any punctuation mark in a sentence, the pause will provide the right timing of things to take place. Till then, let us not waste our time waiting. Instead, we could be in the moment, seek substance in simplicity (that is, in what we already have), And enjoy the pleasure in pause. “Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray.”
