Miley Cyrus Commenting on Liam Hemsworth's Photo Is All of Us TBH
Our hearts just can't get enough these sweethearts Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus. From Liam's Instagram feed, we can say that he doesn't post too often—but when he does, it's always a bomb dropped on our Miam hearts! He just posted the cutest snap of him and his fiancée Miley with the caption, "My little angel and I." But judging from Miley's reply, she's just proven that celebrities are just like the rest of us. She commented, "Why. This. Picture lol." Haha! Anyone else had the same thought when your bae posts a photo where you weren't exactly ready yet? (via buzzfeed.com)
Remember those awkward Disney Channel commercials from the early 2000s that went viral? Hilary Duff got another shot in remaking the commercial for Buzzfeed when she was dared to recreate her wand commercial with her imaginary drawing skills. While reminiscing those preteen days, she revealed, "They made us do it like 900 times. And I think I like lost all personality at that point." Watch it all here and skip to 3:05! (via mtv.com)
If you didn't know yet, Harry Potter's author J.K. Rowling's name is actually Joanne. But what made her use a pen name in the first place? She recently revealed with CNN's Christiane Amanpour that her name change was actually a result of sexism—her publishers tried to hide her gender from the readers! Because they wanted the Harry Potter series to appeal to all genders, they decided to use her initials as sort of a pseudonym. But because the series won awards and gained publicity, she was eventually revealed to be, well, a woman. Still, J.K. Rowling had no regrets in having a pen name because as a young writer, she was happy enough to be published. Now, she sees it as something separate from her private life. (via teenvogue.com)
"But now, I actually quite like having a pen name, because I feel that's...like an identity and then in private life, I'm Jo Murray. And it feels like quite a nice separation." —J.K. Rowling

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.
Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.
Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.
For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?
Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.

"While I was reading my devotional book yesterday, this part hit me: rejoicing together is more difficult to do than grieving with each other. And so, I thought of reminding myself that I should be happy for the success of others. After all, we are part of one family and every one of us is striving to accomplish our own goals in this world. Let us be happy for each other."
