5 Reasons Why You Should Definitely Watch Nerve
- You might see a bit of yourself in Emma Roberts's character.
We're used to seeing Emma as the evil queen bee in Scream Queens, but here she plays Vee (short for Venus), a very shy high school senior who always puts other people's needs before hers. She's the kind of daughter who would say no to her dream college because it's too far away and her mom needs her. She's the kind of friend who always supports her BFF's crazy antics. She's the kind of girl who simply cannot talk to her crush, even if she’s just practicing in front of a mirror (see: "So, what's your email number?"). #itme
- The thrill is real.
Given everything we know about Vee, we totally understand how she can be pressured to try the new game that everyone's talking about: Nerve, a viral dare or dare game that divides its users into "players" and "watchers." On the surface, it seems like she signs up to be a player just to show her friends that she can be fun, but deep down, a part of her is craving for some adventure, too. Still, she doesn't forget her true self: when dared to leave Bergdorf's while wearing expensive couture, she chooses to run through the store in her undies rather than shoplift!
- Vee and Ian sitting in a tree...
Vee's first dare is to kiss a stranger for five seconds. Enter Ian, played by Dave Franco, who just happens to be reading Vee's favorite book. Sparks fly, and the connection is so magical that Ian, who's also a player, is able to pick the perfect tattoo for Vee mere hours after meeting her (choosing which tattoo design to commit to for life is seriously hard, you guys, and when you find someone who can understand you that well, don't ever let go). With the watchers shipping them, Ian convinces Vee to team up with him a.k.a. go on the most exciting first date ever. Teehee!
- The music is perfection.
We liked it so we made a playlist—or at least tried our best to recreate the OST.
- This could be the (scary) future.
Nerve starts out innocently enough, but of course there's a very dark side to this game that offers augmented reality, easy money, and instant fame. Players earn more money and get more followers with every dare they complete. Watchers pay to see their favorite players in action and sometimes get to weigh in on what their next dare should be. Kissing a stranger is scary enough—what more pressing your body flat against the railroad as an actual train sped by mere centimeters from your head (!!!). It's undeniably exciting and fun and new, and it's not far-fetched to say that some version of Nerve could be the viral game of the distant future. Let's just hope that our future selves know better and choose good clean fun!

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

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?
