7 Movies to Watch in Case You're Trying to Move on During the Holidays
Dealing with heartbreak during the holidays is difficult; everyone seems so happy, except you. We know and we get how you feel, Candy Girls. So if you want to just deal with all the pain and the drama today, we've rounded up a few feel-good movies that will surely lift your spirits even for a bit. You can get through this, Candy Girl!
- The Holiday
The Holiday is a no-fail pick-me-upper for those who are dealing with a broken heart at this time of the year. It shows us that some surprises aren't all that bad and that they could even turn into something beautiful unexpectedly if you just let them.
- P.S. I Love You
There's one reason why we still love watching P.S. I Love You even if we know that it's going to make us cry uncontrollably. It's a glorious wakeup call that moving on from someone is also a great time for rediscovering yourself.
What you have with someone (or, in this movie, it's something) may be good but if it hinders your growth as a person, then it may be smart to let things go and make space for the real thing, the good things. That's how Her exactly made all of us feel.
- You are the Apple of My Eye
You Are the Apple of My Eye will teach you that all first loves make great memories and sometimes, they're just that, memories. It may hurt a little whenever you remember them, but that doesn't change the fact that they were beautiful memories with someone you hold so dear.
- Begin Again
We've said it so many times before, and Begin Again shows us this, too: most of the time, happy endings aren't about ending up with the guy of your dreams. Most of the time, it's about you, just you, feeling happy and complete all on your own.
- Paper Towns
There's no point in saving someone who doesn't want to be saved. That goes out to yourself, too, as shown in Paper Towns. If you want to move on and let go of someone, will yourself to do those things.
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower not only taught us that "we accept the love we think we deserve." It also taught us that we deserve the best, nothing less.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
