Celebrities are just like us in the sense that they enjoy the same things we do. Many stars, however, aren't as ~free~ as they wish to be in terms of pursuing certain passions in life. Some had to stop school so they could 100 percent commit to their craft. Others, like Andrea Brillantes, also had to giving up doing mundane but fulfilling activities every other teen likes to do, like going to the computer shop after classes or joining the varsity team in school.

Andrea started working in the showbiz industry at a very young age (Think: six years young!), which meant a typical day for her involved working on set instead of playing with friends like regular kids do. In a new video on The Squad Plus' YouTube channel, Andrea sat down with co-star Seth Fedelin to talk about ~personal~ things, one of which was what she missed the most about life pre-showbiz.

To this, Andrea had a lot to say. First, she said she really misses going to the computer shop. ICYDK, Blythe is quite the gamer. She even got to face off with popular gamer Ako Si Dogie in a battle of Mobile Legends earlier this year. Aside from freely dropping by their resident computer shop, Andrea just generally misses the experience of going some place alone without the fear of being recognized and possibly mobbed. "Yung 'di ko kailangan magtago. Kasi minsan kapag sobrang daming tao tapos mag-isa ka lang, tapos kung artista ka dudumugin ka kasi," she shared. "Kapag kasama ko yung family ko sa mall, nararamdaman ko na istorbo ako para sa kanila kasi ang daming nagpapa-picture. Hindi naman sa nagrereklamo ako, ayoko lang na napapa-feel ko 'yun sa mga kasama ko."


She also misses the experience of going to school, and nope, not because of campus crushes. Andrea generally misses the perks of being a student, like going to school without taking a bath because you woke up too late (Relate much?). She explains, "Dito sa showbiz, mahahanap mo ang crush e. Pero hindi mo mahahanap yung, gigising ka sa umaga tapos, ako sa school, 'di ako naliligo. Pumapasok akong walang ligo."   

To be clear, though, Andrea is very much happy about where she is now in life. At the age of 18, she's already bought a house for her family and has made a name for herself in the showbiz scene.
