Did you know that, globally, people watch episodes of their favorite comedy shows in the morning? Netflix released their viewing data which found that there's a 34% spike in comedy viewing all over the world in the morning, just when people are bracing themselves for the long day ahead.
We know you're not morning people, Candy Girls. LOL! What after months and months of staying up until 3AM to finish your school requirements?! But for this summer vacation, as you prepare for a new semester in August, maybe it's time for a new routine. Why don't you get your day started with these Netflix shows that are guaranteed to give you GVs that will last for the entire day?
- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Say hello to Kimmy Schmidt (Bridesmaids' Ellie Kemper), one of the four women who are members of an apocalypse cult and have spent 15 years of their lives living in a small underground cabin. After she realizes there's a big, big world outside of what she's been seeing for more than a decade, our heroine decides to stay in NYC to try her luck and catch up on everything she's been missing—which is a LOT. You think you've seen everything before? Wait till you see it from the eyes of this newbie in town.
- Jane the Virgin
We're pretty sure you've already been watching Jane the Virgin...and we're also sure you love it because of the strong woman that Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is. Imagine how, because of someone's mistake (not even yours!), everything in your life changes. But our favorite girl goes through it with as much courage as she can muster and shows us that you don't really have to know the answers to every question in your life all at once; you just have to continue moving forward. Love her!
Inspired by Sophia Amuroso's autobiography of the same title, Girlboss follows the story of rebellious Sophia (Britt Robertson) as she goes through the highs and lows of figuring out her place in the business world. Our main girl goes through a lot of challenges, including losing people's (and eBay’s) trust, but we absolutely love how she stood through them all.
We know you love comedy and some mystery aaand we think that iZombie will give you both those things. Rose McIver's Liv, a human-turned-zombie, uses her special abilities to help solve crimes in their community. But most of all, she's just trying to find her place and protect the people she loves as much as she can.
- Haters Back Off
In this world of memes and viral videos comes Miranda Sings (Colleen Ballinger's famous YouTube character), a sheltered and self-absorbed girl who wants to gain fame via YouTube. On her road to being popular, Miranda encounters haters (and hateful comments) and people whom she steps on just to make her dreams happen, which is a major no-no in life. What we love about her? How she hilariously portrays all the things we're guilty of in the age of social media. Eep!

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
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!
