There's a Movie Out There for Every Single Girl
We all see our single status differently, some may be dreading the fact that they belong to no one, while there are also the ~*blessed*~ few who are celebrating their freedom. No matter the case, we all share the love for feels-inducing films. Remember, you may be single right now but it does not mean that you have to watch these movies alone!
For the NBSB:
This 2001 French romantic comedy will speak to your soul if you have not been lucky enough to find love yet. It will show you that it is okay to take your time and to wait for the right person to arrive. When love finally comes around, you may be hesitant to give it a shot because a relationship is an uncharted ocean for a woman who has never gotten her feet wet; but don’t be afraid. Be brave enough to jump right in, just like our girl Amelie.
Our fave quote: "So, my little Amélie, you don't have bones of glass. You can take life's knocks. If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So, go get him, for Pete's sake!" —Glass man
For the newly single girl:
No one handles a breakup better then Elle Woods (this vegetarian Gemini is serious goals). So if you need some inspiration on how to get back on your feet after getting your heart broken, this is the movie to watch. This film will show you that a breakup can sometimes be the best thing that could happen to you, we mean it. This "dream guy" may have left you in the dark, but remember that you still have other dreams and they are yours to keep.
Our fave quote: "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't." —Elle Woods
For the cynical single girl:
(500) Days of Summer
You've been around the block once, maybe twice, and you can already smell a player from a mile away. Well fair enough, your heart was broken by one not too long ago. You have experienced love—real love, with all the bad that comes with it and now you constantly have your walls up to protect yourself from getting hurt. Yup, you are very much like Summer Finn. You are familiar with the pain that comes with love; you've seen it with your own eyes, and you have held it in your own hands. Know that not everyone you'll love will break you; please dare to try again.
Our favorite quote: "There's no such this as love' it's fantasy."
For the fiercely independent single girl:
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Of all the strong, independent women in motion pictures, Holly Golightly is hands-down our favorite. Her class and her impeccable style have been a regular on our mood boards and aesthetic goals since the movie came out in 1961. It only goes to show that confident and independent women never go out of style!
Our favorite quote: "I'm like Cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don't even belong to each other."
For the single girl who's okay with being single:
You actually enjoy being alone; and that is the most freeing realization you'll ever have in your life. You believe that what's meant to be will be so you leave it all to fate. While the universe is still cooking up your grand, romantic love story, work on yourself. Go get those As just like Cher did! Your Josh will have perfect timing, we promise you.
Our favorite quote: "You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet."
For the single girl who doesn't know how to be single:
How to Be Single
This movie is godsent for anyone who is still learning the ropes of not being in a relationship. We've all been there; modern dating is a scary, scary place. How to Be Single will show you that you are not alone in your struggles and by the end of the film, you may just realize that you are where you are meant to be
Our favorite quote: "I've been thinking that the time we have to be single, is really the time we have to get good at being alone."

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!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
