The nominees for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards have been announced—with the help of cutie Austin Mahone—and we're super excited because most of our favorites (like Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, and Lorde) are on the list. Make sure you vote for them here before the show airs on August!

Taylor Swift just turned her two adorable cats into a meme. Cat lady + country singer = perfect! Tay posted a photo of her cats, Meredith and Olivia Benson, on her Twitter which made all of us go LOL. We'll totes be using this in the future, that's for sure.

Little Mix went full power recently to say that the rumors that the group wants Perrie Edwards out (because of reportedly wanting to spend more time with boyfriend Zayn Malik of One Direction more than them) is false! Phew! The group clarified this via Instagram when one magazine published an article about it. The caption said, "We have not fallen out, there is no rivalry or tension, we grow closer professionally and as friends every single day and we guess it should be taken as a compliment that people resort to stories like this to try and bring us down."

Speaking of One Direction, 1D cutie Louis Tomlinson is heartbroken. Apparently, he wasn't able to purchase his hometown football team, the Doncaster Rovers. There were a few issues about the deal, so it didn't push through. Louis expressed his sadness in a series of tweets, and we feel bad for him too. It will be okay, Louis, don't worry.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
