5 Things You Missed Today (December 22)
ICYDK, One Direction was this weekend's musical guest on Saturday Night Live, while Amy Adams hosted. The cuties sang "Night Changes" and "Ready To Run" for the crowd. Of course Zayn Malik's mini ponytail was also present on the show. Um, calling on Jack TV, please show the current season of SNL so we can watch what this skit is all about on TV. Pretty please? :D
Speaking of One Direction, one cutie from the group was spotted recently coming out from Tiffany & Co., stirring up rumors that he could be engaged or getting engaged soon. Which 1D cutie is it, you ask? It's none other than Liam Payne! Liam and his girlfriend, Sophia Smith were seen in NYC coming out from the place with a blue bag. Maybe he just bought his girlfriend a fancy Christmas gift, really. But if these 2 got engaged for real, then we're happy for them. That's what supportive fangirls do. Right?
New snaps from the set of Insurgent in Atlanta, Georgia came out earlier, and it's making us more excited for the film to premiere in March. Looks like there's going to be so much action in the Divergent sequel. Just look at how Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) appear in this photo. Raise your hand if you're just as excited as we are!
What are 5 Seconds of Summer's Michael Clifford's concert must-haves? It includes Taylor Swift (or maybe just her music?). Now the online world's having a grand time asking if T-Swizzle is Michael's crush. Besides, he was also spotted putting his arm around the pop singer in one of the photos from her 25th birthday bash where Michael came in with the rest of the boys. What do you think? Is he crushing on T-Swizzle? We totes think that'd be okay, though, and really cute too.
Meghan Trainor just gave us the best news we can get this week. During her interview at the Seacrest Studios at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the "All About That Bass" hitmaker revealed that she's having a dance track with Jason Derulo soon. "I don't know if I'm allowed to say this, but I'm going to: I just cut a song with Jason Derulo," she said. Watch the whole interview in this clip below.

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
