Personally, I believe “The Karate Kid” is highly relatable because we’ve all been in Daniel’s shoes (in some way). However, most of us were not as luck as Daniel to have a Mr. Miyagi to guide us.

Happiness is an attitude rather than a place. There are many things wrong with the term “pursuit of happiness”. First, thinking about it as something you can chase after or find is one of them. Why? Take a step back and try to detach yourself from everything you know about the word. Now, think about it as something that can be built. In others words, it can be self-created. However, this “provocative” thought also leads to another important realization — “happiness is a choice”.

So what makes this film so good? First, I laughed throughout the entire film and that says a lot. If you’re trying to make a comedy that fails to amuse its audience — you ain’t doing it right. Second, it’s one of those films that I don’t mind watching over and over again. As a matter of fact, if “Nacho Libre” was the only film I was allowed to see for the rest of my life, I wouldn’t mind. Third, as silly as the main character “Nacho” was, I still rooted for him. Costumes, Napoleon Dynamite, Cosplay, Fictional Characters, Character, Jack, Ronald, Style

As I said before, the best villains are always controversial. As a viewer, I was rooting for the Avengers to win. However, I couldn’t help myself to agree with Thanos on the side. Well, I guess villains always have the best arguments. By the way, is Thanos really a villain? I know he’s killing all the good guys, but he’s doing it for a superior cause (in his mind).

Is Social Media “Really” Hurting Our Mental Health? | Why do people update their relationship status online? To whom is that information relevant?

How Important Is Physical Attraction In A Relationship? | Is it possible to be in a romantic relationship without feeling physically attracted to that person? My current answer would be “no”. As I see it, physical attraction is not shallow. First comes lust and then love. Forget about love at first sight, it doesn’t exist. How can you love someone you don’t know? However, I know it’s possible to feel attracted to a complete stranger... Fifty Shades Of Grey, Film, Drama, 2018 Movies

What Does It Mean To Be A Man Nowadays? | A female friend once told that she should’ve been born a man. No, she’s a not a transgender and she has no plans to "transition”.

The Death Of IMDb Message Boards (2001-2017) | Without its message boards, IMDb has become a very “sterile” place to check out for film facts. Who’s going to explain to me now the “confusing ending”? Or why that certain character was so mean? Personally, I love listening to different opinions and the IMDb message boards were just a fun place to do that. Sadly, not any more...

Are Your Dating & Relationship Standards Too High? | Now… I believe there’s a difference between being picky and knowing your worth.

The Difference Between Love, Lust And Infatuation | First of all, I don’t see myself as a hopeless romantic. However, I do have a keen interest in our culture’s obsession with falling in love. So, have you found “the one”? Have you ever been in love? Before you say “yes”, think about the meaning behind the word. What’s is love? Do you know the difference between love, lust and infatuation?

“I Want It Now!” — The Culture Of Instant Gratification | Let’s face it, technology has “shrunk” the world. Nowadays, the access to things is almost unlimited. Therefore, it’s almost “inconceivable” the idea of waiting for things to happen. This type of mindset has of course, repercussions in terms of how we manage our lives.

Are Parents Always Right? | Here’s my take on this matter: parents fake it till they make it. Yes, I said it. Parents don’t know it all, because they are on the same journey as you, the journey of life, however, they are older than you meaning that they have taken a couple of more steps than you. Nonetheless, being older and having more experience doesn’t necessarily mean that all their advices are pure gold... Ideas, Family, Modern, Phil Dunphy, Phil

How To Respect Your Best Friend | When times are rough, people that are so-called your “friends” tend to reveal their true colours.

When And How To Say No | When I listened to Meghan Trainor’s new song “No”, something clicked on my mind: sometimes we just don’t say “no” enough. And I think I know why this happens: we are all secretly people-pleasers to some extent. As I see it, we all suffer consequences when we stand-up and say the taboo word “no”. There will always be a negative comment/reaction attached to this particular word, there will always be someone unhappy to hear this word.
