7 Movies To Watch This Month To Help You Get Your #Swag On
It is the month to exude swagger and effortless cool, embrace everything about yourself, and just be rad the way you are. Still not comfortable to walk with your head held high and accept the fact that you are awesome, too? Here are 7 movies to help you do just that. Happy watching!
1. Brave. Who says girls can't be their own superheroes? Princess Merida shows you that a princess can do the saving herself, especially when the person who needs saving is her beloved mother. This arrow-armed Disney heroine wants to let you know that you have to embrace who you are—curls and all—and use your strengths to conquer whatever it is that's in front of you.
2. Guardians of the Galaxy. We all have something mighty inside us. The Guardians inspire you to take the lead and save the world because sometimes underdogs aren't really underdogs. They're just superheroes waiting to happen—even if they only know a few words and find it difficult to understand metaphors.
3. The Little Rascals. See, even these kids know that the "Girls Hate Boys"/"Boys Hate Girls" state of mind shouldn't be taken seriously. After all, we all live in one planet and there's no point hating on each other.
4. 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko's (Channing Tatum) BFF story is a good example that you can click and be close friends with someone who has a totally different background from you. No need to change who and what you are to fit in, girl! It's really just a matter of making your similarities and differences work to strengthen the bond between the two of you.
5. Freaky Friday. So you think you are way too cool for your mom just because you're from this generation and... well, she's NOT? The answer is no. If anything, your mom may be cooler than you especially when a stressful situation arises. Just so you know, she's been dealing with stress since you were born. LOLJK!
6. Step Up movies. Nothing captures swag like the entire Step Up franchise and, of course, the dancing world's coolest couple alive—Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum who met while filming the first Step Up movie. ICYMI, we listed all the cool reasons why you should totes watch all the movies over here.
7. Honey. Because Jessica Alba's dancing and showing off her über flat tummy. JK, that's just half the reason why you should watch this film. Honey was inspired by the life of Emmy-nominated dirctor and choreographer Laurieann Gibson (who works with Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry!) and her struggles before she made it as a popular go-to dance teacher to the stars. She shows you that with enough determination and hard work, you'll make it big too.

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.
