ICYDK, Charli XCX wrote the song "Same Old Love" and handed it over to Selena Gomez. When Charli was asked in a recent interview with GRAZUA Australia why she gave it to Sel, she said, "This [particular] song was something I had written and she loved it and felt it related to her,” Charli XCX explained. After hearing Sel perform it, she wanted to sing it herself, but ultimately decided the song would mean more coming from Gomez." Because of her on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber, the song seemed fitting to her and Charli added, "It felt very real coming from her, and I think a lot of the audience could really connect because of what had been going on." (via mtv.com)

"It was cool that she really brought that song to life." —Charli XCX

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be in Taylor Swift's squad? Squad member Ruby Rose has the answer and she told KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show about it! Kyle Sandilands asked  the questions we are dying to ask with, "Do you get a membership card or anything or a T-shirt when you join Taylor's squad?" Ruby hilariously answered with a "yeah, you get this whole hazing thing and you have to do an initiation. I had to do it to be in Taylor's squad." She was kidding, of course! And she later answered with "I don't know. I don't think she even calls it that... it's just a normal friendship."  (via teenvogue.com)

Would you believe that THE Ellen DeGeneres wasn't allowed to enter the White House? Ellen was going to the White House to receive her Medal of Freedom, but when the talk show host arrived, she forgot to bring her ID, so they didn't let her in. The White House really does have some strict security! Ellen did what anyone of us would do in that situation—and that is to update her status and tweet about it! But all's good because our girl Ellen managed to enter the White House and even did a mannequin challenge with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, and Diana Ross. (via usmagazine.com)

5. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

A mind-bending science fiction thriller from the best-selling author of Wayward Pines – Dark Matter is packed with the concept of the Multiverse and the philosophy of existentialism. The novel follows an ordinary Physics professor, Jason Dessen, who was looking forward to dinner with his family while walking the streets of Chicago. The next thing he knew, he was being held at gunpoint – by a man wearing a mask – and injected with an unknown drug and blacks out. When he regains consciousness, he learns that the world he woke up to was different from the world he knew.

Here's a poem I wrote a while back reflecting on what it's like over-rationalize a simple thing like crushing on a dude -- hence, the title "Scientific Method"

Scientific Method

You were a phenomenon I cannot wrap my head around

When I first met you, my heart forgot to make its signature sound

And it's overwhelming, your presence;

And underwhelming, so science will be the only language I'll hide in-- For now.

Observation--

At first glance, I notice your top button unbuttoned,

and your shirt fully cotton

Complete with a smile as nervous as me

And a swagger in your step only I can see

Further on, I find your wit to be at a pace

That doesn't leave any space for tension to rise

and it's all too nice

And ridiculous and a bit too suspicious

That this isn't another (well,) circus.

Hypothesis--

Now, let's take a wild guess,

Oh, but it has to be smart, yes,

That this could lead to something with potential

That this isn't another differential easily solved

With a formula, tried and tested but never evolved

Experiment--

For so long, we've both been independent of any dependent

Keeping our variables fixed and ourselves distracted

With anything, everything,

But not a single thing

Could stop me from pushing this blindly to find its threshold,

Hoping that it's a quantity my hands could still hold

Over hours, days, and weeks

Through minor revisions and tweaks

Then comes the analysis -- that these weren't accidents

So, now I find myself in a conundrum

With the anomaly in a blue shirt right in front of me,

That this had to be processed logically,

But the findings are as follows:

None of which were shallow, so I therefore conclude that it's true,

I therefore conclude that it's you.

Mi Luna: The Light in My Dark Soul Locked in… Alone…

Why do I feel comforted by darkness? Oh cause maybe because… I am a jolly and very enthusiast kid back then. All I know is to have fun, laugh and play. But as I grow older, everything has changed, a lot. I can feel the changes. I know the more I get older, I’m turning to something I’m not. You know what, I just realized I like it even more. And that’s how I turned a monster. A monster to my own self. Always questioning life and even God about the things that are happening with my life. “Do I deserve this?”. Every day was a struggle. “Which mask should I wear now?”. And every night is my judgement time. “Should I still continue with my miserable life?”. This certainly sum up my whole life. I have this mindset since I was young. I can say that my experiences made me like this. I always want to escape, but every time I tried to pick up myself up, there is always shits that pulls me down. And there, I get tired. Hoping that no one would ever see this. As I despise myself as well. What I can do now is to just embraced everything, I just embraced darkness- reflecting my own self.

“Look at the moon, it can shine alone and it can give us light at night.” A line I was keeping in my mind that a friend of mine helps me realize things and been there to fix my path. And there I started seeking for my moon but I do not know which part should I start. As days passed, I started to open up myself. I started to act as what truly inside me. It is very hard at first and there is this time that even the situation got worst. But as I continue exploring with my life, a question pop out on my head “Why did I still get this far?”, I can say that maybe I should do this, maybe I really can do this but it is myself who is holding me back because I’m afraid.

Now as far as I am trying to revive my soul, there I know that many people care. Yes, I learned to open up but not to all, on different situations there are people who can understand me because they have the same situation as I am. I learn to open up as long as they did not force me. I learned to navigate and open up for whom I trusted and at the same time when I am ready. The light that I am seeking is my own understanding and acceptance about myself. My light is myself and I am Mi Luna. So it is not too late to save myself. I have thought that, I should be a survivor and winner. That I should also be the ruler of my own mind and soul. Eliminate the room for darkness and let the light shine through you, that I can say how I earned myself again. Mi Luna’s darkness have turned to spotlight.
