5 Things You Missed While You Were In School (March 11)
Is Ed Sheeran writing a song for The Fault In Our Stars? Earlier today, Ed's tweet excited a lot of people as they speculated that he might be writing a song for the movie. There isn't any confirmation from the producers and from the British singer yet, but if he really is doing one then we have another good reason to watch the movie on June 5. Imagine what a tearjerker that song would be, especially when it's used as background music to one of the scenes in TFIOS!

Are you a huge fan of Lorde? Yes? Then we have great news for you. The "Royals" hitmaker is collaborating with MAC Cosmetics for a limited-edition makeup line, which we're 90% sure will include dark-hued lipsticks—one of Lorde's trademarks aside from her curly hair and moody voice. This collection will be available on June 5. Better start saving up and start wishing that a store will distribute her collection in the Philippines, so you can channel your inner Lorde too.
Ever had an experience when you wanted to take charge of a group presentation because no one had the ball rollin', and somebody told you you're pushy or bossy or agressive? Don't feel so bad about it. Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, Jane Lynch, and some of the influential women in the world join hands for Lean In Organization's latest campaign called Ban Bossy, which aims to promote women empowerment by banning the word "bossy" to describe ambitious and agressive girls. Let's join them and encourage our fellow young girls to take charge and speak up. Take the pledge to #BanBossy here.
Need something to inspire you to go on a new adventure this summer? The newest trailer of the movie Tracks will give you inspiration. Starring Mia Wasikowska (Alice from Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland, remember?), the film is about a girl who takes on the challenge of traveling across the deserts of West Australia with only four camels and a dog for company. The movie is based on the story of Robyn Davidson, who left her city life behind and went on a solo trek through 1,700 miles of desert. Tracks will premiere at the 2014 Venice Film Festival this August. Can't wait? You can enjoy watching and re-watching the trailer, in the mean time.
Remember when you came home from school and you were itching to watch Doraemon? Or that time when you almost got late for school because you wanted to watch the show's reruns in the morning? Well here's the sad news, Candy Girls. The upcoming new movie, starring our beloved robot cat, titled Stand By Me is going to be the final one in the Doraemon franchise. It also seems like a major tearjerker, with a theme like Toy Story 3. Since there isn't a version of the trailer with English subtitles(!) yet, this report from KDrama Stars translated some parts of it for us. Doraemon tells Nobita that he can't stay with him anymore, and the vid ends with the tagline "To everyone who has experienced childhood." Stand By Me will be released in Japanese theaters on August 8. Let's just hope somebody decides to bring this movie in the Philippines so we can bid our favorite robot cat goodbye, too.
