Just Stand Up

Beyonce: The heart is stronger than you think
It’s like it can go through anything
And even when you think it can’t it finds a way to still push on, though

Carrie: Sometimes you want to run away
Ain’t got the patience for the pain
And if you don’t believe it look into
your heart the beat goes on

Rihanna: I’m tellin’ you that
Things get better
Through whatever
If you fall, dust it off, don’t let up

Sheryl: Don’t you know you can go be your own miracle

Beyonce: You need to know

Sheryl: If the mind keeps thinking you’ve had enough
But the heart keeps telling you don’t give up

Sheryl/Beyonce: Who are we to be
questioning, wondering what is what
Don’t give up

Fergie: It’s like we all have better days
Problems getting all up in your face

Leona: Just because you go through it

Fergie: Don’t mean it got to take control, no

Leona: You ain’t gotta find no hiding place

Keyshia: Because the heart can beat the hate

Leona: Don’t wanna let your mind keep playin’ you

Keyshia: And sayin’ you can’t go on

Rihanna: I’m tellin’ you that

Miley: Things get better
Through whatever

Rihanna: If you fall

Miley: Dust if off, don’t let up

LeAnn: Don’t you know you

Natasha: Can go

LeAnn: Be your own

Natasha: Miracle

Carrie: You need to know

Ensemble: CHORUS

Mary: You don’t gotta be a prisoner in your mind

Ciara: If you fall, dust it off

Mary: You can live your life

Rihanna/Carrie: Yeah

Mary: Let your heart be your guide

Rihanna/Carrie: Yeah yeah yeah

Mariah: And you will know that you’re good if you trust in the good

Ashanti: Everything will be alright, yeah
Light up the dark, if you follow your heart

Mary: And it will get better

Mariah: Through whatever


Fergie: You got it in you, find it within
You got in now, find it within now
You got in you, find it within
You got in now, find it within now
You got in you, find it within
Find it within you, find it within

This is truly an inspiring song. It's sung for stand up to cancer and I think it doesn't apply on only that, there are many people who suffer in different ways and often want to give up. This song gives me strength and reminds me that I can stand up. The lyrics is for the recorded version:

Just Stand Up - Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Leona Lewis, Leann Rimes, & Carrie Underwood
The live version is sung on stage but with a slight difference in people where we have Nicole Scherzinger

Two rich girls, having big rooms, drivers, parties to go to. Shopping at any time they like and having no limit to their credit card. They think they own the world, they see themselves higher in society. Ditching school whenever you like, I wish I could be them too. Sadly, they have no one to supervise them as their grandmother is busy, and their parents died in an accident. The sisters have always stick together and do practically everything together. In comes tutor, hired by their grandmother to help their grades improve. Their grandmother wants them to enter a prestigious college, The Duke.

Based on the book "How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls" by Zoey Dean, it has been made into a series called Privileged by CWTV. Set in the beautiful beaches of Florida, with all those big mansions, our main character Megan Smith starts a new life, a path to help her pursue her dreams (to be a writer). Of course, that's just part of the story, her main job is to tutor two rich brats.

Throughout the series, sister relationships are highlighted, we see the relationship of Megan and her sister Lily and the rich brats, Sage and Rose Baker. It shows how strong sisters can be and how they could also drag you down someway. Other than that, Megan also have a fear in dating, she is afraid that whoever she dates will cheat on her, a phobia brought on by her sister who dated her 1st boyfriend. Not so nice a scene if you ask me, not easy to deal with either.

So far into three episodes we see three handsome guys appearing, we have Charlie (her best friend), Will (her neighbour, more like the Baker's neighbour) and Jacob (the headmaster of the school Rose and Sage goes to). The are quite good looking, different types of men in terms of looks and personality. I'm definitely rooting for Charlie because you can see this best friend of hers has always been there for her, don't know what he's waiting for anyway.

I love that this show that talks about pursuing your dream, which is quite like mine (to be a writer). It reminds me of not being too side tracked. A reminder to me that pursuing my dream is not easy but you shouldn't be afraid to chase after it. Often people who are afraid of failing avoid the things they like. In order to not be disappointed, we avoid, we run away from it. We should at least try before being afraid of the outcome. You'll never know, we have to let loose and try our best. Life has up and downs, we all know it, we can't always have ups only. It's the downs that makes you a stronger person as you rise up from the fall.

Laurel and Megan


Rose and Sage



Watch it!! I give it a 4/5 with great music, actors, fashion and also storyline.

Fall is here!!

Finally fall/autumn is here, actually it's already mid-autumn. Anyway what's so exciting? The new seasons of tv series are back again, not to forget the japanese animation will soon start their new titles for the season too.

On the 1st of September, some series have already started, Gossip Girl Season 2, One Tree Hill Season 6, 90210 the new one, Privileged which started last week. I like GG, One Tree Hill alot. These are still very good series to watch, Privileged is something new which I enjoyed too. 90210 on the other hand is kinda boring already at the start. Don't think I'll continue on with the series.

One thing that I truly can't wait is Heroes season 3. There will be a three hours preview on 22nd September, really can't wait. Everyone is wondering what more can this series bring to us. Next week itself we have many series back on air, Desperate Housewives (5 years later thingy), Ugly Betty (what's her decision), Survivor new seaon. These series always kept me busy in this season of the year. For me, summer is always filled with movies, fall with tv series. Yeah, I know I'm hooked up to all these tv shows and movies. It's really addictive for me.

Anyway, I've added a small thing on my blog, Quote of the week. I find that quotes gives me alot of inspiration and makes me think alot. It's able to at least help me point myself at the right direction. Hopefully I won't be lazy and will update the quote every week. Back to life and reality time :P
