Heartbreaking Story of a Filipino Couple who Drowned on their Honeymoon

This is the news from Manila, Philippines, from where the couple belonged. The incident took place on January 13, 2019. Erika and Leomer, the couple who went to Maldives for their romantic getaway and spend a beautiful honeymoon, unfortunately met with a drastic accident where they died a bad death.

Here are some more details about their stay in Maldives and who they were as individuals.

Both the people were nurses by profession and were high school sweethearts. They got married on December 18, last year, and left for honeymoon on January 9th. For this romantic escapade, they stayed in an island of Maldives, named as Dhiffushi.

There are over thousand islands in the Maldives and Dhiffushi is one of the local islands and there are small guesthouses for tourists. It is uncertain in which guesthouse the drowned couple stayed.

The incident took place on Sunday, when they went out to snorkel and drowned. The resort workers rescued the two people from the waters and took them to the nearby hospital. But they were pronounced dead upon their arrival.

After having a talk with the family, Leomer's sister shared that both of them wanted to visit Maldives from a very long time. It had been their dream destination ever since they were young enough. Both of them were the bread earners of their respective families.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
