Did you know that days before the release of 1989, Taylor Swift actually applied for trademark on a few lines from her songs? Legal documents from the US Patent and Trademark Office showed that the pop singer wanted to get ownership for several lines from her album including the following: "party like it's 1989," "this sick beat," "cause we never go out of style," "can show you incredible things," and "Nice to meet you. Where you been?" Girl really knows how to succeed in music and in business.

Ten-year-old twin girls Abby and Sarah are giving us goosebumps because of their performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Aside from talking about their relationship as sisters, the two also sang Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" and "I'm Not the Only One" while playing their guitars. Their vocals are amazing! Watch the video below now.

Ryan Gosling may seem like a perfect kind of guy, but actress Saoirse Ronan recently revealed in an interview with MTV that he has one flaw: The Gos doesn't really reply to e-mails. Apparently, Saoirse whom The Gos directed for Lost River has a hard time knowing more about the film because the actor doesn't respond to her messages. "I have his email. He never emails anyone back," she said. "He's so bad at e-mailing back, but he did e-mail me the other day. I felt really lucky to receive his words." What can we say, you can't have it all. Lost River is Ryan's directorial debut film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last May.

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.”
