Life of Pi. What are you supposed to do when nothing's going your way? You don't give up, of course. Take your cue from Pi Patel who survived a disaster at sea and was forced into an unexpected adventure with a scary tiger while working on ways to live through every single day. This film is a beautiful reminder that if you want to make it, there will always be a way out so never, ever quit your goals.CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended VideosADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The Fault in Our Stars. TFIOS screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber couldn't have said what we get from watching this film any better. "Big questions, big themes; not exactly your typical teenage dinner conversation. But these are not your typical teenagers," they said in an interview with Vulture. "Though they live their lives refusing to let their disease define them, Hazel and Gus are also acutely aware of their need to accelerate a lifetime of experience into what little time is left. Something the rest of us never do. But maybe should."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
A Little Princess. Sara Crewe shows you that a little imagination goes a long way. If you're having it hard today or you're just too tired to carry on, just imagine a few fun things and you're good to go. Do things with so much heart and optimism even though it's not easy. Remember that you're just having a bad day and not a bad life. Your attitude on what life brings you can make a big difference.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
August Rush. Have faith in yourself and your dreams. Admit it, on most days you tend to put yourself down and doubt what you can do. Stop burying yourself in negativity, Candy Girl, because if you only look hard within yourself, you'll find that everything you need to make things happen is within your reach. If you won't believe in what you're capable of, then who will? Everything starts within yourself, so change that attitude and believe that you were and are meant to have everything you've ever wanted.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Guardians of the Galaxy. Need a huge serving of encouragement today? Surround yourself with people who have a positive attitude towards life and those who believe in you and the power of your dreams. Don't you ever let anyone tell you that you have impossible goals in life.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The Bucket List. It is a fact of life that we're all going to die one day, so we might as well do all the things we can and we want while we're still strong enough to do them. Find time to actually do what's on your bucket list instead of putting them on hold because you're either too busy or too tired. Live your life every day as if it were your last and you'll realize that you can do anything you put your heart and mind into.

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!
