5 New Songs You Shouldn't Listen to If You're Heartbroken
We know, we know, the more someone tells you not to do something, the more you want to do it. Isn't that how you ended up falling for that person everyone warned you about? No, just us? Throwing yourself a pity party is part of the moving on process, and these new releases are perfect for when you want to drown in all the feels. Don't say we didn't warn you, though!
- "The Breakup" by LANY
Raise your hand if you think "The Breakup" could totally be the sequel to the band's LDR anthem "current location." Maybe the distance was too much, maybe one or both of you didn't try hard enough, maybe love or like or whatever that was just wasn't enough. So here you are, crying on the shower floor, how the hell do you fall in love, the last time I checked you can't fall in slow mo.
- "Want You Back" by Haim
There is cautious hope in this song, which puts you in the shoes of someone who knows they messed up and is ready to do everything to make it right. I'll take the fall and the fault in us, I'll give you all the love I never gave before I left you. Exactly what you want to hear, but may never. (Sorry.)
- "Eyes Closed" by Halsey
So you're doing your part to move on, you're in that place where you're ready to start seeing other people. Or so you think. You may go out with someone who’s the opposite of the person who broke your heart, but it hits you when you least expect it. Maybe they like their fries the same way (cold and soggy, deliberately left out in the open), maybe they eavesdrop on other couples’ conversations, too. You know this game, know how to play, yet you wonder, why do you keep losing?
- "For the Fickle" by Reese Lansangan
You're keeping it cas'/caj with this person, so cas'/caj, you're not even going to finish the word. But if you're being honest, you're really tired of restraining yourself. For once, you just want to be free to dive in and feel all of it, without the fear of spooking them. You're neck deep in this while they're still wading by the shore. You just want steady love, is that too much to ask? Well, yes, in their case, if their silence and inaction are anything to go by.
- "Crowded Places" by Banks
You misheard "I know the touring is romantic" as "I'm a notorious romantic," but hey, it still works? And while you first heard it in an uplifting moment on Girls, the next time it plays in your head, it's the morning of that person's flight out, the time to say stay longer has long passed. They wonder out loud if they forgot anything, and you bite your tongue so you don't say *me*. A shared cup of coffee later, your separate cars arrive at the same time, how poetic, how funny ha-ha. You feel like you'll see each other again in the distant future, but by then you'll be drastically different people. A kiss and a hug goodbye, and that's the end of it. Hey, hey, hey, hey.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
