Thank you for those five years, boys. Looking forward to a lot more with you.

After five years, the remaining boys of One Direction are taking a break. We don't really know how to feel exactly about this. We're happy for them because they've been working nonstop since their exit from X Factor, but we're also sad because we don't know until when we'll be waiting for their return. What are we going to do during that time, right?



But we know Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan all need this hiatus. We know we're just as scared as they are because the unknown future is always scary. We'll be here, whatever happens. For now, here are the top 10 things we'll be missing about the boys.

During their last show before their extended break in 2016, the boys treated the fans to a night of music and reminiscing all the good things we've been through together. (via This won't be an easy stage in our fangirl lives, you guys, but let's be here for each other, okay? And in the spirit of reminiscing about what we've been through with the boys, here are 10 of the million things we'll definitely miss while the boys are taking their much-needed break.

 1  Rumors of a new album.

We definitely won't be reading headlines about a new album any time soon. We won't be seeing paparazzi photos of them coming out of recording studios or see posts of them online working with their friends on a song. New material from the boys seem so far away now.


 2  BTS snapshots and videos of them working on a music video.

And because there's no new 1D material, there won't be new videos also any time soon. BRB, we'll just rewatch all of the One Direction videos we can find online until the boys decide to make a comeback.

 3  Tour announcements.

Of course we want them to come visit a place near us. Who wouldn't want to see the boys perform some of our favorite songs live. Imagine not expecting that for a while. Huhu, they're not touring their Made In the A.M. album, you guys.

 4  Find out they broke records.

They're the biggest boyband in the world for a reason. These boys have a massive fandom as a group or separately. Mess with them and you're dead. They can make any topic about the boys trend online and will unite to defend them whatever it takes.


 5  Guessing what their next announcement would be.

It's always fun to guess about what their next announcement is about with the rest of the fandom. Would it be a new album, a new music video, a new book, a new fragrance? The possibilities are endless! Nope, definitely won't be having this for a while.

 6  Their mini-accidents onstage.

Okay, don't get us wrong, we know how the boys feel. But they're just too cute after falling onstage during their tours and performances, acting as if no one noticed or nothing happened. Those years in front of a large group of people definitely trained them well.

 7  Going to the cinema to watch their concert movie.

Another thing we look forward to seeing whenever they go on a world tour? The concert movies. The concert film is a huge thing for us who don't get to see the boys live during their stops in different parts of the world. It also gives us a glimpse of what really goes on behind the scenes of their massive concerts.

 8  Their antics during important events.

Remember when Niall sang "Out of the Woods" and Harry rescued a fan who was having a panic attack because she finally saw them? Or how about them making fun of each other during interviews and press events. These boys definitely know how to give everyone a good time.

 9  Whenever they make headlines because they're being themselves.

There's Zayn's epic strand of hair, Liam taking headlines about his weight-gain with a joke (!), Niall falling down while caddying, Louis standing up for Directioners on Twitter, and Harry dancing during a concert. These are just some of our beloved memories of the boys. We can't imagine not having these in our lives while they're on hiatus. 

 10  All the hilarious trending topics on Twitter about the boys.

Directioners can make anything trend any time they want. Remember when "quick-quick" became a thing after the boys had their Manila concert? Or how about that time when the whole fandom was bored and made one trending topic after each day? Ahh, talk about unity right there.

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
