Life.

Life. Literally, life lmao. Me and my girl literally had to see this for our bae, Jake Gyllenhaal, who’s last name I can never spell lmao. We love him. He’s a cutie. We hit the 9:30pm showing in Whittier. This movie theater … Continue reading

Ratchet and Clank.

0.jpg

I literally was d for this movie bc it says Ratchet in the name lmao. This movie was PG af. My bro was d bc he just got the Moviepass and actually played the video game when he was younger. Apparently it was on Playstation haha.

Ratchet and Clank at 7:20pm at AMC Century City 15. I was sad bc I wanted See’s Candy but they closed early on Sunday haha. Wah. The movie was like hour and a half long and we were a little late. Per usual. There was like one couple in the theater and another couple with a kid. This movie was so fucking mindless for me haha. First of all I was beat from the day, I wanted to sleep but no! Paid for this ish. Kinda. We had AMC Stubs Rewards so it only cost 5 bucks. But still :(. No Moviepass life = a sad life haha.

Not sure if you care, but the plot is literally 2 superheros by the names of Ratchet and Clank, saving their alien people haha. I think? My bro mentioned a good point. Was “ratchet” even a term back then? I guess it’s like ten years old. I wonder haha. It was pretty dumbed down too. And it’s Sony which isn’t Disney or Pixar. Moral of the story, I would prob only go if I had a small child to bring haha. Otherwise, pass.

So hello Sunday, after a pretty rough Saturday. I’m sad. I failed again this morning with my bible study group. Didn’t sleep too well and ended up falling asleep again at 8:30am. I woke up and legit booked it to Ktown. I made the last 15 minutes of group :/. Smh. I wish I could attend like a normal person. I wish it wasn’t so hard to make it. Idk why I let myself fall so short. I wanted to really connect with these girls too. They ended up praying for me and I lost it. I’m a cry baby for sure.

My mouth was hurting after so I laid down. My NY hg was throwing a going away for her roomie, whom I adore, in Weho, and I really really wanted to make it. Since yoga has been so healing for me lately, I really am making it a priority. It actually worked out bc Yogaworks was legit 5 min from their apt, and my fav instructor was teaching at 4pm.

I was  happy to catch up with my girl, and their apt is just so perfect for a darty (day party, they invented it, they from the mid-west haha). I used to live with 4 girls from IU. We called ourselves the trap. I love them. I really wanted to stay longer but needed yoga haha. So yeah.

Ran some errands after. Felt bad cause my bro bro was legit bored af at home haha. All he did was go walk to get lunch lmao. I asked him if he wanted to go to church at Oasis at 6pm, he said sure. I think it was a courtesy sure haha. My friends ended up not going so we decided to do the movie instead. I think he enjoyed it haha. It’s just always nice to get out for a bit.

Wait how is it May. I swear April was like…. the longest month. And now it’s over.

Mid life crisis yll. It’s real.


TRACK OF THE DAY: I love the dvsn feature on Drake’s new album. Here’s a track from their project.

A Hologram for the King.

0

This movie is extremely interesting. Very different and… just interesting haha. Tom Hanks is of course, Tom Hanks. A Hologram for the King at The Landmark on Pico at 9:40pm. Convinced the broskee to go bc we’re roomies now!!! Lmao. I’m so lit. But I’m also sad af bc it’s temporary. He just got a new job in Hollywood and is crashing in my living room for a month. Until his squad moves to LA with him. I’m hella sad haha. Having him as a roomie makes me smile. Legit love it.

I had asked him if we could live together, and his response was, “I love you, but no.” Ha, dang. Feels. I can be psycho sis for sure. Too easily actually. But anyways. This movie. The plot does not give you any info on the movie, to me at least. I felt it was irrelevant from the actual story. I’ve been told lately I sometimes give spoilers, so I’ll stop there haha.

The plot:

A beautiful doctor (Sarita Choudhury) and a wise-cracking taxi driver (Alexander Black) help an American businessman (Tom Hanks) who’s trying to close the deal of a lifetime in Saudi Arabia.

This movie is dope bc of how much we got to see the culture of Saudi Arabia. My bro informed me that women can’t drive there! Nor vote! The fuh. That’s so nuts to me. Like the fact that driving is considered a privilege? That’s bizarre. And idk. It’s so religious there. It’s beautiful though. Lots of sand and desert but the nice areas are real fucking nice. The woman doc, who’s gorgeous, lives in a glass house overlooking the extremely blue ocean. The good life.

Anyways. It got bomb reviews and it’s only an hour and half. I was extremely distracted throughout the movie but that’s why I love going with my bro, cause he dgaf haha. It’s considered a comedy but… very subtle. And yeah. Interesting film haha.

I’m in shock rn. My mouth is STILL numb from my dental procedure at 3pm. Like yo that’s 9 hours. That’s not normal haha. It was pretty gnarly tho. They consider it a mini surgery. I had to get a bone graft for my tooth that was extracted. So crazy. And then I have no come back in 6 months to get the implant. Sigh. Life. < my mantra.

Getting numbing shots in your mouth is legit one of my worst nightmares. Shit fucking hurts. I legit am 5 years old. I squeezed the shit outta the dentist assistant’s hand haha. He legit gave me like over 5 shots, and I was still fucking scared I would feel something. I’m supposed to just feel pressure, but I swear, my anxiety fools me into feeling something in my nerves. All bad.

I had to get antibiotics and anti-flammation pills. Shit cost like $30 bucks at CVS. Wahhh. Anyways. What’s about to happen next is depressing af. I had time to kill so I went to the candy store in Westwood to grab my fav (Trolli Strawberry Puffs) and I posted in the red for like…. 5 min. No lie. Parking ticket. COOOOOOOOL. I’m an idiot. It’s official. I’ve come to conclusion that I’m an idiot. I guess it was about time. I used to get them legit religiously. Was on a good streak for a while minus my tow at The Grove. That shit cost $93 bucks 😦 it hurt for sure. But my New York trip this summer fell through so woooo. Half my paycheck for a bad, impulsive, last minute decision. *sigh*

So I snuck into Core Power Yoga after haha for the Sculpt class. Legit such a good class. Core Power Yoga is my fav studio for sure. It’s just you leave feeling like you legit worked out. I mean, it’s hot yoga, so you’re gonna sweat regardless. But the instructors are mad dope and they push you. The 5:30pm was PACKED too. Legit that studio on Wilshire (in Brentwood) is always poppin.

Went home showered got some shit done and then went with the bro. My morning was so rough haha I had to nap before my dentist apt. So PS, I’m legit in a mid life crisis. I have no idea what I’m gonna do but let’s just say I’m gonna try something new. And hope it works for the best. Lots of fear and hesitation with this decision, but trusting God got me. I was gonna say hoping, but realize I can’t be hesitant with my faith. It’s all or nothing.

My mouth is still fucking numb. I can’t.


TRACK OF THE DAY: My two fav rappers in one track. Yas.

God’s Not Dead 2.

0

First of all. Drool. Jesse Metcalfe is gorgeous haha. I was definitely a fan of Desperate Housewives, where he plays the hot gardener Eva Longoria cheats on her husband with. Unfortunately, no shirts off in this movie. But he’s literally suited up as Melissa Joan Hart’s lawyer the entire time. So handsome haha. My friend goes, from gardener to lawyer lmao. Truuuuu.

AMC Century City 15 at 10:30pm. God’s Not Dead 2, have I heard of the first one? You bet not. Ha. But I wanted to take advantage of no deadlines this week. I got off work around 9:30pm and my homegirl hit me. She just got out of Mosaic, the church in Hollywood I got baptized at. It sucks cause I sincerely would like to go to mid-week service but I can’t cause of my work schedule. Sigh.

I asked my gay bestie to go and he said he was d but when he got there he decided to see something else. Honestly, so selfish. And I’ma talk shit and I hope he reads this. But he prob won’t bc he only cares about himself lmao. Shirley mad. But more bc if my other girl didn’t come, he would literally left me hanging. Right when I had arrived to the theater too. Ugh I hope karma is real haha.

Okay but honestly it all worked out, I was so glad my girl came. We had a good time, and actually enjoyed the movie. It wasn’t what I expected at all. It was 2 hours and PG haha. I really didn’t think it would be as religious as it was. But it definitely was educational, especially to non-believers. The majority of the film takes place in the court room, that ends up circling back to the argument of the existence of God. V interesting.

Plot: After answering a student’s (Hayley Orrantia) question about Jesus, a high school teacher (Melissa Joan Hart) faces a court case that could end her career.

First of all, I loved Sabrina The Teenage Witch. That show was my ish haha. Thought it was dope she is still acting. She plays a high school teacher teaching 11th grade. That was my prime year lmao. She basically gets in legal trouble for bringing up Jesus in her AP History class. Such a trip. I feel like it’s so easy to find a reason to sue someone these days.

The movie didn’t get the best reviews, but I think you have to have an interest in religion or believe in God to enjoy this film. I genuinely did, and I think so did my girl. God has really been the solution for me lately, so it was nice to see a movie  actually push the message about having faith. In fact, before the credits rolled, they state “God’s Not Dead.” Feels.

The theater was empty minus like 3 heads. Two chicks sat a couple rows ahead of us and one of them was literally on IG for a good chunk of time. I was like really???? They disappeared mid movie too. Social media is so toxic guys. Minus Twitter, cause you can just talk shit all day long haha.

My day started out lame. I got to an interview and they literally cancelled when we all arrived. So sus. Who does that. It was a group interview with other USC colleagues. Meep. I got my girl to come to Bar Method with me tho! It was fucking hard today. More than usual. It was also the last day of my Groupon ): I hate how fitness classes actually do depend on my finances and what not. Like, it ain’t cheap haha.

Work was chill. Kinda long. 2 hour groups are hard mayne. Long af. Got the longest day tomorrow. Meep. Time for my sleeping pill.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Can never go wrong with Tory.

ROOM.

1

ROOM. One of the best movies I’ve seen in a minute, and you know I see a lot of movies. It’s an Indie film I believe, because it wasn’t playing in mainstream theaters. All g though bc I hit up my fav theater in LA, Landmark on Pico. Free popcorn seasoning ftw.

My hg put this status up and it def made me want to see the film. Although Rotten Tomatoes is bae, I prefer hearing feedback from people I actually know. After seeing it, she couldn’t have said it any better.

“You know that feeling of peace and weightlessness that comes after you’ve had a good, long cry? Like everything that’s been weighing you down, just disappears? That’s what seeing the film Room feels like.
I went to see the film last week during a Q&A Screening in Hollywood and I spent the entire film crying. I was crying so much that at one point I stopped trying to hide it. But I wasn’t crying because the film was somehow too dark- I was crying because of how beautifully this story was being told despite it’s seemingly dark plot. It’s interesting and captivating and gut-wrenching and inspiring and soul crushing and uplifiting, all at the same time. So, if you feel like you need a good cry, or feel like you need to something worth the ridiculous price of movie tickets, see Room.”

Shoutout to her ❤ Initially, I was going to go into the plot, but I think it’s better if you go see it yourself. It’s definitely worth the price of a movie ticket, like she said. Basically, it showcases a mom and her son who are stuck in a room. The mom has been trapped for 7 years and the son just turned 5. So yeah, do the math. The film was so intense. I turned to my soulmate multiple times throughout saying my heart hurt. I think hers did too. So many times I had tears in my eyes, Then during one scene I lost it. Hit me if you’ve seen it and wanna know which one!

I was really glad I went. The movie humbled me in a way. The whole situation was so surreal, and it definitely made me extremely grateful.

Idk what it was about today. I could barely keep my head up and at one point thought about asking to go home sick. Reward myself with a massage after at my usual place. That was dank.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My hg posted this and I had to steal it. She’s mad dope and loves hip hop like I do. King Los is ill too. Feeling extra humble lately. Glory to the Lord.
