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 everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space.

Imagine you are holding a photograph. There, there you are. A 5-year-old you is being carried by her momma and papa while holding your rag dolls. That innocent, charming little girl is looking at you and said, "Where are you now?"
Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.
If you're still single now, there are probably a a lot of questions running in your head. But being on your own for a long time helps you discover more about yourself. It's more than just freedom or independence. It's facing the world with so much courage. It's trying to make the most of your life without having to depend on someone. It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
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.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.
