10 Ways To Know He's Trouble
You know what's sadder than finding out you were with the wrong person? Being stuck with Mr. Trouble. Who's this guy anyway and how do you know he's just a nightmare dressed like a daydream (thank you for the words, Taylor Swift!)? Here's a list you may want to go throught right now.
1. He is too sure too soon. He'll tell you all the sweet words you want to hear, like you're special or you're different, too soon. Sure, not all guys use these lines to fool you or play with your feelings. But when he tells you those things a week or two after you start dating, wouldn't that be a little weird or quick?
2. He gets a little too touchy. He should know that he's supposed to respect you. Just because you haven't said that he can't hold your hand or that he can't give you a kiss on the cheek during your past few dates doesn't give him the permission to do so. If it makes you uncomfortable, tell him. If he doesn't listen and insists on what he wants, LEAVE.
3. He doesn't like being with your family and friends. He doesn't need to befriend all of them a la Modern Family, but he has to try to get along with them at the very least. Why is he scared of your parents anyway if he's not going to do anything to hurt you, right?
4. His stories sound like they were written by great writers. Does he always put himself in the victim's or hero's shoes when he tells you something about his past? Do you feel suspicious or like there's something up when he gives you excuses about why hasn't called when he got home or why he flaked out on your date, which you guys planned a few weeks ago? Time to double check on him, honey.
5. He is "seeing" another girl. So you're only dating and you ask him about relationships. He then tells you that he was or is seeing another girl, but it's nothing serious. He tells you that it's nothing like what you both have. Girl, walk away. It's just not right that he's "seeing" girls at the same time even if it's just dating. You won't date other guys while you're dating him, right?
6. He loves drama and violence. He always picks a fight with you or his parents or with anyone. He tells you no one understands him anymore. He rebels by failing subjects in school, drinking too much (when he's underage!), or even takes in harmful substances. Walk away, honey. You have so many things to think about. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
7. He treats other people like crap. You can tell so much about a person by the way he treats strangers, waiters, old ladies, and people he meets every day. Does he sound so rude talking to the cashier in the mall? Does he argue with the cab driver in a really harsh way that you feel scared or uncomfortable already? If he has the balls to treat strangers like they were crap, how much more those persons who are close to him?
8. He uses you. You can always be there for him in school and even assist him in lessons that make his head ache for the rest of the day. But if things get to the point where you're the one making his homeworks and projects for him or taking his notes for him, then you should think twice. You're both in school for a reason. He should keep in mind that you have a lot of stuff to work on, too.
9. He goes all MIA on you when things get tough. We all have bad days and on times like that, you just need someone to stay with you. So if he goes missing after you tell him you're having a bad few days, weeks, or months because he says he doesn't want drama, then punch his nose. JK! Ask him why. He doesn't really need to say anything. He just has to hold your hand, wrap you in his arms, and make you feel that he's just there beside you.
10. He keeps you on your toes. He always gives you something, but not everything. He gives you enough, but not enough to keep your doubts and worries at bay. If you're always worried that he's going to leave you hanging in the middle of everything or that he's going to do something that will hurt you and break you, ask yourself if it's still worth it. Last time we checked, relationships aren't supposed to be founded on fear and worry.

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.
