I used to like Britney Spears for being herself all the time, (I know, I am embarrassed now just thinking I liked her back then) but now, she’s overly exaggerating everything and she’s even dragging her family, most specially, her kids into catastrophe. I was shocked to read this news. I know that she’s wild but I didn’t think that a mother could do this. Anyone could be wild but make sure that nobody else will be victimized by your actions. But in this case, Spears’ children, Sean Preston, 2 years old, and Jayden James, 1 year old, are the ones who suffer. Before I used to think that Federline is just using Britney and her money, but now, with evidences showing Britney’s incapability and irresponsibility, I now understand why Federline needs to take their children away from Britney’s hands and custody.

Here is an article about Britney Spears’ incapability and irresponsibility:Driving With Baby In Front???WTF???

Child welfare investigators are looking into “multiple child abuse and neglect” allegations in the custody battle between Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline, according to court documents released Tuesday.

In a request to unseal parts of the case file, an attorney for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services wrote that there are concerns about the safety and welfare of the two toddlers, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, if they are left in their mother’s care.

Though the agency mentioned investigating referrals relating to Federline, the documents don’t provide details.

After-hour calls to attorneys representing Spears and Federline were not immediately returned.

The agency requested the court not alter the current custody and visitation arrangements until their investigation is completed. Federline has temporary custody of the boys after Spears defied court orders about regular drug testing.

The latest tidbits on the custody battle are in 300 pages of documents released by Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon.

The document dump included previous court rulings, expense reports and income statements for both parents, the names of the custody evaluators selected by Spears’ and Federline’s attorneys and their detailed resumes.

Spears had asked the court to seal the custody and visitation schedules in a declaration filed in October, arguing that “such information greatly increases the chances that the actions of the media could threaten the safety of the children by, for example, causing a traffic accident.”

Spears, whose every errand is trailed by a mob of celebrity photographers, is notorious for distracted driving. She is under investigation for injuring a sheriff’s deputy while exiting the downtown courthouse in her white Mercedes.

In 2006, she was photographed driving with her son on her lap.

In October, she pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving without a valid driver’s license and later obtained a temporary California license.

A misdemeanor hit-and-run charge from an August parking lot crash was dismissed after she paid an undisclosed amount to the car’s owner.

Spears pays Federline $15,000 per month in child support, and previous court rulings have said that he currently has no income. (Los Angeles Times)

A lot of our parents have been wondering what really happens to their precious children when they are on their Spring Breaks. Especially, when a lot of news, issues, and situations have been exposed about girls going wild on their spring breaks. So how is this vacation spent this time of the year?

Here is a brief history of Spring Break taken from springbreak.com

Spring Break all started as a cultural tradition among college students, it has been an annual event to them, setting rituals. It said that it is a celebration of young people welcoming the return of spring. According to some reports, modern-day Spring Break was traced back to the ancient rituals of the Greeks and Romans leading the birth of Christ. Back then, men and women, who were wishes to have children, welcomes the season of fertility, happens on the return of spring. They celebrate rituals on the names of Gods Dionysus (Greek) or Bacchus (Roman), the god of wine. These rituals include drinking and dancing, until they all given into the call of earthly pleasures. Many believe that the essence of Dionysus or Bacchus lives on, and that Spring Break is one of the current incarnations of that drive in human beings.

As I have mentioned earlier, college students celebrates and welcomes the return of spring like the Greeks and Romans has, only more liberated and wild. Also, the movie “Where The Boys are”, have somewhat, great influence to what or how spring break was all about. It was to find fun, sun, and true love. Now, students seek places to escape challenges of their studies, usually beaches, to find romance, have a good time, and de-stress themselves.

As the years passed, how Spring Break was spent had gotten more liberated, wild and controversial. In 1970, there were reports saying that alcohol and other intoxicants were used and so the result of these was wild and rough partying and celebrating, leading to wreckage of some establishments. In 1980, this generation began adding sophistication with the way Spring Break was celebrated. Though getting drunk still takes a big part in the Spring Break Ritual, there are some planned activities added, including more sports, theme parks and other tourist spots trips, snorkeling and scuba diving, and even a job fair. The marketing thrust also switched, moving from primarily pushing beer and cigarettes to advertising computer-related items, video games, cars, movies and television shows, and other youth-oriented consumer products.

But nowadays, we are all aware of what’s happening during Spring Breaks. If I am not

mistaken, “Girls Gone Wild” started there. There are videos seen everywhere with girls shaking booties, girls flashing their boobies, contests for girls who exudes sex,

Flash usage of drugs like cocaine, marijuana, ecstacy, and of a lot of other addictive and sexual substance are also present in this celebration, teens having sex. Yes, you’ve read it right, not just college students do these Spring Break rituals, even high school students.

So if you want to take a break, Spring Break that is, be sure that you go with the right set of friends, don’t be influenced or don’t act on dares that would make you less of a person, mostly, us girls. Be wise and please, notify your parents, so they won’t be shocked when you were seen in a video aired on tv and net.

I have included a video and a photo here to show how Spring Break is usually spent every year. This video might have contents not suitable for youngsters, so please be advised and have an adult’s permission.

I can still remember when my friend, Jamie, brought a cd into our house and said “I have a movie that would make you cry”. Intrigued, I dragged her upstairs, went inside my room, opened my tv and player, played the cd and watched. Oh, and have a tissue ready beside me.

She knew me too well.

She knew that it would really make me tear up and inspire me. Well, to be honest, only a cold-hearted person and a person who has a heart made of stone will probably be the only one not affected by this movie. And the title of this great love story movie?the notebook the movie

The Notebook, based on a novel written by Nicholas Sparks.

I was deeply moved by how much a man could love a woman. How much sacrifice they are willing make just to prove how much they love each other.

 

The movie started with an old man sharing a story to an old woman, who suffers from Alzeimer’s disease, in a nursing home. He started narrating the love story of two young lovers, Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun. Allie lives in the city and belongs to a wealthy family, while Noah is a mill worker who lives in the country. They met in a carnival, where Allie was on a double date with her friend. Mesmerized by her beauty, Noah asked for a date, and she agreed coz he was daring her. And so their love story began.

 

 

One Amazing Summer

On that glorious summer they shared the time of their lives. They were madly inlove with each other. Till one night where they almost shared the most romantic night together in an old house, Allie’s parents, who by the way, were against their relationship, caught them. As summer ended, so did their love affair.

the notebook

 

Allie left Seabrook and left her address with Noah’s friend. And so Noah wrote to her 365 letters, 1 letter for each day for a year. But since he didn’t receive any replies, he thought that she had forgotten about him and joined the army. After the war, with the money given to him by the government, Noah bought the old house, where him and Allie almost shared a romantic night, and built it exactly as what they have both planned, down to the last detail that Allie wanted.

After fixing up the house, he then realized living there by himself, was meaningless since he doesn’t have Allie with him. And so he announced and advertised to sell the house. Meanwhile, Allie met a soldier who also belongs to a wealthy family, and later on got engaged. While Allie was fitting her wedding gown, she saw a picture of the house Noah made. Allie wanted to make sure if Noah’s okay and so she went back to Seabrook. Face to face, as much as how hard they tried to hide their feelings, love still prevailed. And so Allie chose Noah over her fiancé. As the old man finishes his story, the old woman suddenly came to her senses and remembered everything about her and her past, and recognizes the old man was Noah and remembering herself, her life, her past and the love her and Noah shared together. Finally, remembering everything they shared the night together, sleeping and not letting go of each other. They never woke up again and spent eternity loving each other.

Here is a song from the movie 50 First Dates, Forgetful Lucy. Enjoy it while reading this post. Be mesmerized, feel the love and fall inlove.

Who would’ve forgotten the film 50 First Dates, starred by Drew Barrymoore and Adam Sandler? Both their movies have hit the box office and have touched people’s lives and were loved by many. And upto now, I bet that when it’s showing on your regular movie channels, that you still enjoy watching it, right? Well, who hasn’t?

What did I love most about 50 First Dates? Hmmm? Well, first, Drew (Lucy Whitmore) and Adam’s (Henry Roth) tandem had been proven had a great chemistry. We can see that they complement each other on and off cam, and its probably one of the reason why their movies had always been a big hit in and around the country. Second, the script and story itself, speaks for themselves. The story is very deep, all the values, love, and care of a daughter, father, brother, friend and lover was deeply showed in this movie. You would even think and sometimes envy why your family isn’t that perfect, loving and showy. I certainly love the way Lucy’s father (Marlin Whitmore played by Blake Clark) cared and protected her, even to his brother Doug (Sean Austin). Though if you’ll look deep into the story of the movie, it’s really very tragic yet realistic. This instances could really happen to anyone, and it’s upto them how well would they handle it, if it’s a burden or just a challenge. The writer had a great talent for turning a tragic story into an enjoyable and entertaining one. This could change people’s way of dealing with problems and situations like this. That it is not yet the end of the world. I also enjoyed the participation of Rob Schneider’s role here as Ula. His character lightened up some heavy scenes in the movie. But the main reason why people loved this movie was the way Henry Roth unselfishly loved Lucy. How he changed himself, his lifestyle, and even his future for her. It gives hope to all the viewers that there is still someone out there who’s willing to love someone despite tragedies, problems, sufferings and misfortunes. It made me realize that there really is someone who is rightfully meant only for you.

So, everyone, don’t stop dreaming and hoping for your prince charming to come. We’ll be meeting them, maybe not now, but someday, when we least expect it. Let’s just wait for them and let them and the moment sweep us off our feet.
