Gods of Egypt.

So glad I went to the movies so I can report about my nightmare of a day. Possibly one of the worst days of 2016, and will be come the new year. First of all, March? What the. Today was the most painful experience emotionally and physically. So I had work at 5pm, and scheduled a dentist appointment at 11am cause my right back tooth was sensitive. I didn’t fully knock out til 6:30am so I was legit exhausted when I woke up at 10am and had to drive to Westwood. It’s the longest 2o minutes of your life when your half asleep trying not to die driving. Feel like I’m that prime example of the warning label: May cause drowsiness, do not operate vehicle. Of what not to do haha.

My dentist couldn’t figure what was wrong, which was a HUGE red flag. Even through the X-ray. She said she had to send me to a root canal specialist and I might need my tooth extracted. That had me so worried. It was my third day on the job and I couldn’t afford to call in. It’s so sad bc those were my only thoughts at the time. Making it to work and not missing work.

Obviously can’t function under pain tho. My tooth had been giving me a headache for a couple days and it killed to eat. I had to get this taken care of. Luckily, the root canal specialist was down the street in the Westwood medical building. Unluckily, they had me waiting for days :(. Just sitting in the lobby, miserable. Today was a lot of that. And of course, things are magnified when you’re in pain.

When they finally saw me, the specialist again second guessed the procedure. Like wtf is wrong with me 😦 feel like such a mf lost cause sometimes. But he ended up sending me 2 floors down to another doctor. He was the implant specialist I guess. So many specific paths and options in the medical field. It’s mind boggling. What really blows me is that most marijuana docs have their PhD’s and shit. Like wtf you really believe in weed huh?

So it was settled. I needed an emergency procedure to extract my tooth. They had to put me under for it, which is so fucking terrifying. I’ve had a couple wisdom teeth pulled and remember it being terrifying. This time tho, they said the anesthesia would have to be through IV aka needles aka DIE. My worst nightmare.

Now this is the saddest part of the story haha. The doc said I couldn’t drive. It’s cool doc, I’ll just uber. “No, uber just drops you off at your door step.” Fine, I’ll call my brother. He can be here in an hour to pick me up. Can we do it now? “No, he has to be here at the beginning of the procedure.” Like FR? Why??? For emergency purposes. Ugh. My poor bro had to come from work in Cerritos and take time off to take care of his forever annoying little sister. Fine. Whatever.

What really got me is.. I really felt like I had no one to hit up. In LA. In the bay I have 2 heads I can totally count on. But here? I didn’t wanna bug no one. Like they’re all working and shit. I would never want them… I just don’t want to be a burden. But actually I was joking with the receptionist later… she was mad cool. She was like ya girl you better reevaluate your circle. I was like damnnnnn haha. Cole world.

I had to drive my car to my apt and my bro had to pick me up. When we finally got back to the office we had to wait for days… again. Man serious waiting game when it comes to health. That’s an issue fr. Wait that’s all we talk about in social work policy classes haha nvm. Meep. Help.

The procedure was traumatizing. But at least I lived to tell it. They couldn’t find my veins to put the IV in and they kept pricking me. Each arm. I started having a panic attack and balling my eyes out. Legit had the laughing gas mask on and it didn’t do shit. So interesting. How my body just doesn’t react. I def think I know why. Def has to do with my history of substance abuse. Anywho.

I swear I feel like I never knocked out. But post procedure I was on one. So woozy and actually in some pain 😦 It hurts meow too. I need to take meds.

I fell asleep for a bit after my bro left. Again, best bro in the world award. Constantly saving my ass. He’s actually going through his own shit too. Big career choices ahead. And poss moving to LA!! Eek. I was so behind (in life) when I woke up so I did some work on the comp. Gay bestie texted me about Gods of Egypt and fuck it. Why not. Get out a little.

I was late af and had to drop off meds at the pharmacy. But met him for the 8:20pm showing at The Grove. We had discussed earlier how it was okay if we left early since it got 11% lmao. He ended up really liking it which I was surprised cause he’s usually a tough ass critic.

Yo honestly my friends were talking shit about this film haha. Like who would go see it. Haters gon hate. Whatever it’s free haha. I thought the chick was hot af in it haha. Gerard Butler is the star. And some dude who loses his eyes in the beginning. Gerard rips them out of him. Can you imagine?

This movie was very animated. The whole time I was trynta figure out if it was low budget or high budget haha. Some part looked legit but others looked like straight shit. Oh it’s in 3D too. That means they for sure tried right? haha idk. I wish you guys could talk back to me when I ask these questions lmao. Need some love rn.

Not sure I could tell you what it was about haa. It’s just entertainment. Would def only recommend it if you have the Moviepass doe. Our theater was actually surprisingly hella packed. I actually left before the movie ended. A little over 2 hours. Omg made it to the pharmacy with a minute to spare. So nerve racking.

I’m just trynta understand life guys.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Heard this on a non rap radio station and really liked her voice lmao.

YAY TO FREE MOVIES. YAY TO FREE ADVANCE SCREENINGS. Again, not positive how I get these, but no questions asked haha. It’s a company called Gofobo? Not sure but I hope they keep hitting me up haha. I had a plus one so I invited my hg. We both had a long rough day, but it was worth it last night. RL Grime yo. Still on a high haha. It was at 7pm at AMC Century City 15, one of my fav spots. Okay, so my standard late night movie parking routine was def in for a surprise. All my spots were taken! My secret is I park by Gelson’s Supermarket and take the elevator up. Fail. I guess 7pm is poppin on a weekday.

There was a table in the front for the screening and they instructed me to go upstairs. I knew nothing about the movie except that the cast was STACKED and it was about Christmas. DOWN. I love these feel good movies. Fr they’re my top choice. Before the movie started, they warned us since this was an advance screening, no cell phones were allowed. We would be asked to leave if caught. Whoa. Way too serious. They also told us this movie is slated to be released November 13. I felt special! They said they would work out any last minute glitches. But it’s interesting to me bc they didn’t ask for our feedback at the end. What was the point?! haha.

The movie was great. It was pretty much the coming together/reunion of a huge family in the spirit of Christmas. The amount of famous actors and actresses in one film though. It reminded me of Love Actually or Valentine’s Day. It stars Ed Helms from The Hangover, Amanda Seyfried who looks the same in every movie, Diane Keaton who I really like even though people think she’s annoying, John Goodman as her husband, the beautiful Olivia Wilde, Marisa Tomei whose character cracked me up, and many more. Okay have to share: Marisa’s character is in a store trying to find a Christmas present and she tries to steal a brooch by putting it in her mouth and walking out. The security guard stopped her real quick. Comedy.

The film was a little long, 2 hours. But it was definitely entertaining. It made me SO excited for Christmas! Even though I don’t really celebrate, it’s just overall a really happy time of the year. Everyone in good spirits and pretty lights and decorations. About it! Gotta get through Halloween and Thanksgiving first doe.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Been hearing hype on this dude Azizi Gibson. His music is pretty raw, a little dark. He actually celebrated his birthday next door to my work at Bait on Melrose the other day. DX came through and I asked them to put me on a track.

THE GREEN INFERNO.

YOOOO THIS MOVIE IS NOT REAL RN. I’M SERIOUS. I need to process what just happened. This is the most ridiculous film I’ve seen in a minute. And you know I stay watching movies. But DAMN. I don’t even have the words to describe it. My gay bestie warned me it was gory, but this was some next level. The plot doesn’t even matter bc this was pure entertainment haha.

11:45pm showing at The Grove, Los Angeles. My happy place. Walked up to a PURPLE fountain. My favorite color. You know I was excited. Unfortunately, I had to screenshot my Snapchat bc it turned off exactly at midnight, aka right when I go to take a still photo. Yes midnight, we were late. 20 minutes previews though. If you know me, you know I’ll do anything in my power to skip the trailers. I just think it’s extra time sitting lmao. #ADD.

I met my homie I used to work with at a treatment facility. He’s a nurse (I love bragging about my friends). I remember the first day we met, it was both our first days there. He was getting off as I was starting. That shift ended up being so boring. So I saw his application in front of me and decided to text him. He was probably like omg this bitch is crazy. Who does that?! Ha. Friends ever since.

So already late, and homeboy decides he needs apple juice. So we’re waiting, there’s like a group of 5 ahead of us. And we’re waiting…. I understand it’s slow and one register open makes sense. But COME ON. I cannot deal. Okay I’m beyond inpatient. BUT, this was not okay. I decided to say something. So to the 12 year old children in front of me, I go, “You guys are making us late for the movie.” ZERO. I was actually just trying to be funny for a sec, but they did not appreciate. They barely looked at me. Awkward. Probably talked shit about me when I walked away. Well deserved.

There were only about 4 other people in the theater, and I can only imagine what a full house would have been like. Our reactions in itself were a riot. Back to the film: the main chick Justine, played by Lorenzo Izzo, is a dime. She has these amazing eyes, which in my book, makes you a dime. She agrees to go with a group of people to try to save the Amazon. Their plane ends up crashing in the jungle among a bunch of cannibals. The rest of the movie is just one big horror scene. Body parts were torn, burned, and eaten. I honestly felt my stomach turn multiple times.

The film really made me question how it got passed. Not sure who approves films or the process beyond it, but it was so beyond explicit. Like beyond explicit. In the beginning, they actually showed part of this dude’s penis, that was sooooo unncessary. I was scarred lmao. I think he’s peeing in the scene and then almost gets bit by a spider. I was too busy freaking out haha. That actually set the tone for the ridiculousness the rest of the movie. So now it makes sense why this was only playing at select theaters. Not your average family friendly film.

To say the least, it was a lot of fun. I love things out of the ordinary. Normal is ultimate boring to me. If you can’t tell.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Ran to Casey Veggie’s Live And Grow album again. The track “New Faces” reminded me of how much I loved the first one. Top 20 tracks for sure.
