5 Things You Missed Today (November 17)
We've missed Ed Sheeran so much since his social media hiatus for almost a year. But when we see him again in the limelight, the moment is worth all this time that we've waited! His last sighting—according to our internet sleuthing—is at a hospital, where he was visiting a 9-year-old fan named Melody. Melody suffers from a neurological disorder that her family explains that she spent 80% of her life in the hospital, here she gone through 40 operations! She recently got the surprise of her life when Ed appeared on her bedside to serenade her with a pink ukulele. We can't help but watch this video with hearts in our eyes on repeat! (via mtv.com)
Saying the name of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and not reading a single Harry Potter book, would earn you an eye-twitch and a splash of drink on your face from Ezra Miller! Watch MTV's After Hours video featuring the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star as he hilariously educates Josh Horowitz about the wonders of the wizarding world. And yes, Ezra Miller did randomly whips out a wand from his clothes! How cool is he?!

The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) formally announced yesterday that the annual Miss Universe will be held in Manila, at the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri-la.It took them a while to make the official announcement because of how big a project it is and that they had to make sure that everthing is right before this big news.

ICYDK, Shawn Mendes is part of the reason why Hailee Steinfeld pursued a career in music. Hailee revealed in an interview with Fashion magazine that her meeting with Shawn years ago inspired her to keep singing. Hailee explained, "I remember meeting him three years ago when I was just dipping my toes into the whole music thing and he inspired me to stay on. He's so kind, [and] even then, I knew he was going to be a big star." Both of them made it so far in music, thank God Hailee continued with her music. If not, we won't have this wonderful duet of them singing one of Shawn Mendes's songs, "Stitches." (via justjaredjr.com)

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.
