Gals who kick ass are the perfect #lifeinspo!

Guys love their superhero movies. Little do they know that girls love theirs, too. Over the course of time, the movie industry has given us action-packed superhero sci-fi films with female leads and they've all been pretty phenomenal so far. It paves the way for girls all around the world to look up to heroines with brave souls and kind hearts, although fictional, still influences their lives in a good way. These role models play a big part in promoting the ability of women to fight for what they stand for and help those who are in need. These are the movie heroines that should be every young woman's life peg.

Let's face it, her bestfriends Harry and Ron would've been dead by the first movie if it wasn't for Hermione. Her quick-witted and intelligent mind saved so many lives in all of the eight movies! Whether it's sucker-punching Draco Malfoy in the face or just simply correcting pronunciation of spells, you can count on this extraordinary wizard to be bravely defend herself and her friends. Smart and sassy, not to mention hella pretty, Hermione Granger is one of Hogwarts' finest and someone we should all be looking up to.

  1. Katniss Everdeen of the Hunger Games series

Not only is she an immensely-skilled archer but she is also a loving sister and friend. Katniss Everdeen was ready to go to war to fight for justice and for the welfare of her loved ones. What’s admirable about her the most is that she puts other first before her. And although there were people she failed to save, including her beloved sister, Prim *cue tears*, she never stopped the fight and made sure justice and peace were restored for others.

  1. Tris Prior of the Divergent series

A divergent means a person belongs to more than one faction and Tris belongs to all five of it. This means she's kind, selfless, smart, honest and of course, fearless. If that isn't role model material, then I don't know what is. She's the kind of girl who's just not going without a fight. Remember her hand combat with Peter in her first few days in Dauntless? Clearly, your homegirl couldn't put up a fight even if she wanted to... but she kept going. This goes to show that Tris was a determined soul even to the most impossible challenges.

  1. Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

We don't know for sure if she's a Skywalker yet but the first few scenes of Rey in Star Wars already showed her impressive capabilities. She has no family or proper shelter whatsoever but she lives off of selling spaceship scraps and remains. This girl probably has more street smarts than we'll ever know. She also caught our hearts when she decided to take care of BB-8 instead of selling it to the dealer. What a sweetheart! But her strong intentions to do good is what makes her worthy to be part of this list.

  1. Black Widow of the Avenger series

It already amazes me that she can go head to head with the Avengers without superpowers or a super suit. I mean the woman has got some mad fighting skills that can already amount to a superpower. She may often be shunned by her dark history but Black Widow rose to the occasion showing everyone that she can’t be defined by her past. Black Widow taught us that women can fight alongside men (with extremely mind-blowing superpowers) and still slay every bit of it.

Did your favorite heroine make the list?

While known for Young-Adult Novels such as Slammed and Maybe Someday, Colleen Hoover offers readers a romantic thriller about Lowen Ashleigh, a struggling author who was given the opportunity to finish the three remaining novels of a successful series after its original author, Verity Crawford, suffered an accident and has become immobile.

5. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

A mind-bending science fiction thriller from the best-selling author of Wayward Pines – Dark Matter is packed with the concept of the Multiverse and the philosophy of existentialism. The novel follows an ordinary Physics professor, Jason Dessen, who was looking forward to dinner with his family while walking the streets of Chicago. The next thing he knew, he was being held at gunpoint – by a man wearing a mask – and injected with an unknown drug and blacks out. When he regains consciousness, he learns that the world he woke up to was different from the world he knew.

Here's a poem I wrote a while back reflecting on what it's like over-rationalize a simple thing like crushing on a dude -- hence, the title "Scientific Method"

Scientific Method

You were a phenomenon I cannot wrap my head around

When I first met you, my heart forgot to make its signature sound

And it's overwhelming, your presence;

And underwhelming, so science will be the only language I'll hide in-- For now.

Observation--

At first glance, I notice your top button unbuttoned,

and your shirt fully cotton

Complete with a smile as nervous as me

And a swagger in your step only I can see

Further on, I find your wit to be at a pace

That doesn't leave any space for tension to rise

and it's all too nice

And ridiculous and a bit too suspicious

That this isn't another (well,) circus.

Hypothesis--

Now, let's take a wild guess,

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

Oh, but it has to be smart, yes,

That this could lead to something with potential

That this isn't another differential easily solved

With a formula, tried and tested but never evolved

Experiment--

For so long, we've both been independent of any dependent

Keeping our variables fixed and ourselves distracted

With anything, everything,

But not a single thing

Could stop me from pushing this blindly to find its threshold,

Hoping that it's a quantity my hands could still hold

Over hours, days, and weeks

Through minor revisions and tweaks

Then comes the analysis -- that these weren't accidents

So, now I find myself in a conundrum

With the anomaly in a blue shirt right in front of me,

That this had to be processed logically,

But the findings are as follows:

None of which were shallow, so I therefore conclude that it's true,

I therefore conclude that it's you.

Mi Luna: The Light in My Dark Soul Locked in… Alone…

Why do I feel comforted by darkness? Oh cause maybe because… I am a jolly and very enthusiast kid back then. All I know is to have fun, laugh and play. But as I grow older, everything has changed, a lot. I can feel the changes. I know the more I get older, I’m turning to something I’m not. You know what, I just realized I like it even more. And that’s how I turned a monster. A monster to my own self. Always questioning life and even God about the things that are happening with my life. “Do I deserve this?”. Every day was a struggle. “Which mask should I wear now?”. And every night is my judgement time. “Should I still continue with my miserable life?”. This certainly sum up my whole life. I have this mindset since I was young. I can say that my experiences made me like this. I always want to escape, but every time I tried to pick up myself up, there is always shits that pulls me down. And there, I get tired. Hoping that no one would ever see this. As I despise myself as well. What I can do now is to just embraced everything, I just embraced darkness- reflecting my own self.

“Look at the moon, it can shine alone and it can give us light at night.” A line I was keeping in my mind that a friend of mine helps me realize things and been there to fix my path. And there I started seeking for my moon but I do not know which part should I start. As days passed, I started to open up myself. I started to act as what truly inside me. It is very hard at first and there is this time that even the situation got worst. But as I continue exploring with my life, a question pop out on my head “Why did I still get this far?”, I can say that maybe I should do this, maybe I really can do this but it is myself who is holding me back because I’m afraid.

Now as far as I am trying to revive my soul, there I know that many people care. Yes, I learned to open up but not to all, on different situations there are people who can understand me because they have the same situation as I am. I learn to open up as long as they did not force me. I learned to navigate and open up for whom I trusted and at the same time when I am ready. The light that I am seeking is my own understanding and acceptance about myself. My light is myself and I am Mi Luna. So it is not too late to save myself. I have thought that, I should be a survivor and winner. That I should also be the ruler of my own mind and soul. Eliminate the room for darkness and let the light shine through you, that I can say how I earned myself again. Mi Luna’s darkness have turned to spotlight.
