5 Things You Missed While You Were In School (February 3)
Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle welcomed their first baby Alena Rose on Sunday, February 2! The 26-year-old former Jonas Brothers singer later tweeted, "I'm so in love with her." And both Nick and Joe seem like they're shaping up to be doting uncles. What do you think of Baby Jonas's name, Candy Girls?
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who played Plutarch Heavensbee in the film, was found dead in his apartment due to drug overdose. Hunger Games fans have nothing to worry, though, because producers assured that his death won't affect the release dates of the Mockingjay films. In addition, Philip has already finished taping his scenes for the first part. Some parts of the second film will be rewritten, but there'll be no significant changes since he only had seven taping days remaining. Mockingjay Part 1 will be released on November and its second part next year.
Our thoughts go out to his family. RIP, Gamemaker!
Are you excited for The Amazing Spider-Man 2? We are, and the good thing is they just released the extended trailer for the film. Almost four minutes of viewing pleasure that will give you the chills and some fears as enemies unite to put down Peter Parker! The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx, and will hit theaters on May 2.
Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers spiced up the Super Bowl with their performance! He opened with "Billionaire," drummed his way to "Locked Out of Heaven," danced and sung to "Treasure," and was then joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in "Give It Away." He ended the 12-minute stint with his breakthrough single "Just the Way You Are." Watch the performance below!
And speaking of Super Bowl, Bruno Mars wasn't the only one making news during the sports event. Canadian singer Justin Bieber was spotted showing off his skateboarding skills in the Leather & Laces Pre-Super Bowl Party. Justin walked to the dance floor and did some tricks using his skateboard. Pretty neat right there, Biebs!

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.
