7 Things Bands Taught Us About Guys and Love
You think we're fangirling over the cute guys of One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, and The Vamps just for sake of it? Oh no, you're so wrong. These cuties actually speak the truth and teach us a thing or two about the crazy world of boys and, of course, love. We rounded up 7 things we learned from their songs to show you, actually.
1. Guys are sentimental. They may not collect movie tickets or restaurant receipts like us, but they do collect memories. And isn't that what's more important? They may not tell you about these things, but they actually remember how your eyes twinkled or how your face lit up during your dates. Not all the details maybe, but the really important ones.
"And we danced all night to the best song ever. We knew every line, now I can't remember how it goes but I know that I won't forget her 'cause we danced all night to the best song ever."
("Best Song Ever," One Direction)
2. They will do and endure anything for the right person. When the right one comes along, they are also just like us. They're willing to bend backwards just to keep her and make her stay.
"We don't wanna be like them. We can make it 'til the end. Nothing can come between you and I."
("You & I," One Direction)
3. They're all for having fun... But of course, they also just want to have fun. It's just like the way we, girls, live for watching tearjerker films together with our friends. They just have their own ways and definitions of "having fun," that's all.
"Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun. I know we only met, but let’s pretend it’s love and never, never, never stop for anyone. Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young."
("Live While We're Young," One Direction)
4. ...but at the end of the day, they really just want someone to come home to. Yup, they want this too. They also wish for a person who can make them forget about their troubles for a little while, who can say the right things at the right time, who's not perfect but is just perfect or them.
"Everybody's trying to be a billionaire, but every time I look at you I just don't care. 'Cause all I wanna be, all I ever wanna be is somebody to you."
("Somebody To You," The Vamps)
5. They really don't want you to change who you are. The movies and TV shows may show you that you need a makeover 80% of the time before you can actually start dating a nice guy, but that's not the case IRL. The right person will find all your quirks funny and cute.
"Your lipstick stain is a work of art. I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart and I know now, that I'm so down."
("She Looks So Perfect," 5 Seconds of Summer)
6. They get their hearts broken... You think that we're the only ones who cry ourselves to sleep and wake up with tear stains on our pillows? Guys go through this messy process of getting over someone, too. They're just not that vocal about it.
"Time has never been my best suit. Now I've got everything except you. You moved out of my heart, still got the bruise. I'd give it all back to be next to you."
("Oh Cecilia," The Vamps)
7. ...and the pain tears them apart, too. And there are also heartbreaks that stay with them even years later, the kind that will linger no matter what the circumstances are.
"Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie? If what we had was real, how could you be fine? 'Cause I'm not fine at all."
("Amnesia," 5 Seconds of Summer)
P.S. Since we're talking about bands and cute guys already, we want to make a special shoutout to one of our favorite boys in the world who's celebrating his birthday today: Happy birthday to One Direction's Niall Horan! We totes love you!

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.
