5 Things You Missed Today (September 21)
As if we don't love Ariana Grande's "One Last Time" and Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean" enough already, Ari decides to give us more reasons to. During her concert, the hitmaker gave us the version of the mash-up we didn't think we needed. This comes after we've heard it from YouTuber Jake Marra's mash-up and Sam Tsui and Casey Breves's medly. Love this, Ari! (via J-14.com)
Have you seen Lady Gaga's latest music video? The "Paparazzi" hitmaker just revealed her new one this weekend, and it's been making headlines worldwide. The topic is a sensitive one, but something that we should all be aware and constantly reminded of. Her video for "'Til It Happens To You" tackles campus rape and the world's culture of blaming victims for what happened, which reminds all of us that it is never the victim's fault that they become a rape victim uand that we'll never fully understand where they're coming from unless we put ourselves in their shoes. Hit the play button to watch the video, but be warned that its graphic nature may be disturbing. If you're a victim of rape in the Philippines, you can call the Women's Crisis Center at (02) 436-5088. (via EOnline.com)
Every year, the world looks forward to who's perform during Super Bowl's Halftime Show. So who's it going to be for the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show? According to rumors, One Direction is in talks to perform for the crowd this year. A source told Daily Mail, "NFL bosses want a superstar line-up and One Direction are very much in the mix. They want a pop and rock mash-up and it is thought that Coldplay and Bruno Mars are in talks, too." Wow, we hope 1D really makes it! (via TeenVogue.com)

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
