This iconic boyband song turned 20 years old this year. TWENTY. Let that sink for a while…then enjoy this video! I prefer this version than the original music video because it shows the guys much older (and hotter) and very dapper. Heh. I had my eyes on Jason all the time. Sorry, Robbie! Speaking of…

Filipino Nathan Hermida on The Voice

March 10, 2015
By

Seventeen year old Nathan Hermida joins the likes of JR Aquino and Chesa to pass the Blind Auditions of The Voice. He sounded so smooth and mature, and he got Adam and Christina to turn around. 

Check out Blake’s face at the 1:29 mark. :) I also loved how Pharrell requested that he play again. I really wish he will go far in the competition. I am for Team Pharrell again, but I am rooting for Nathan!

Super Language Overhaul

I have a confession: I don’t think I would succeed in my very first italki challenge. It was going well and I had this plan of taking 5 sessions of French first, then Hungarian second. I finished all my sessions for basic French almost midway…
