Hollllyyyyyy ish. This movie was bomb af haha. I hella enjoyed it. Even though I was scared af, I legit enjoyed this movie from beginning to end. Also, this bitch is so lit. Fr she is like Superwoman haha. She is just so smart and finds all these ways to escape, like actual genius plans. If I was kidnapped or whatever, I’d be like kill me now lmao. Like fr, the things she goes through are so traumatic. I wonder if they happen in real life honestly.

I was dumb and said it was playing at 8:40pm, but was looking at Friday haha. Damn Flixster app got me twisted. If you don’t have this app tho, I highly recommend it. Movie whores only. It was chill though. Hit the 9:20pm showing with homegirl and gay bestie. I went to Whole Foods before since I had time, to do a salt rinse in my mouth lmao. I kept forgetting that’s part of the after care instructions after getting my tooth pulled. Then hit CVS to get gay bestie Sour Patch so he wouldn’t pay the movie theatre rip off pricing. Homeboy still bought it. After I told him not to. COOL. Bitch lmao.

The theater was packed and it was in theater #1 which means it’s lit lmao. I ran into a friend actually on my way in and was like omg don’t look at me I have no make up on lawl. He was like it’s okay I still recognize you. Haaaaa. We got seats on the lower level and had our feet up. Muhfuckas still sat there when the whole row was empty. COOL.

I’m not sure if this was related to the first Cloverfield. But I def remember seeing that one haha. Don’t remember ish. Holy shit just Googled the movie, it got 90%! Bomb. Synopsis:

A young woman wakes up after a terrible accident to find that she’s locked in a cellar with a doomsday prepper, who insists that he saved her life and that the world outside is uninhabitable following an apocalyptic catastrophe. Uncertain what to believe, the woman soon determines that she must escape at any cost.

Dunno wtf a prepper is. But that character is played by John Goodman haha. He was dope. It was honestly a bomb suspenseful/scary movie haha. I def screamed a buncha times. It was about an hour and 45 min. Was never bored. Felt bad bc I was in some serious texting convos haha. It was on my mind but I had to resist. I just feel bad cause they’re expecting a response right away and ish. First world problems.

Oh, I think people think this is sci-fi. But it’s really not. At the end briefly, but not really.

I had a long day I was sooo tired at my internship. Falling asleep at the wheel on the way over. When will it end.

So at Whole Foods,  they had all this hot prepared food that looked bomb af. Well whatever I got I’m trynta eat rn and it’s SO FUCKING SPICY. I’m dying. Legit tearing as I keep trying to eat it. Idk why I’m torturing myself. Idk how people like hot sauce!!!! Like I’m Asian, why did God bless me with such pussy taste buds haha. Anyways.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Skeme just dropped a tape. This shit go hard. LA cat. Love his flow and delivery.

London Has Fallen.

I didn’t have a choice BUT to like this movie lmao. Homeboy was LOVING it. Sometimes, the people you go with make such a difference. They don’t make you go one sway or the other, but they def can influence. I enjoyed this film. It was very entertaining.

Me and gay bestie hit the 9:25pm showing at The Grove. Almost got a massage instead haha but he convinced me otherwise. Shit, I want a massage so fucking bad. I started massaging myself in the movie. My mouth still hurts. Been poppin pills to alleviate the pain but it still bugs me. I can’t believe I have a hole in my mouth. No one gonna date me fr haha.

So I guess this is the sequel to “Olmypus Has Fallen.” No se. But we are getting Gerard Butler two nights in a row fasho haha. He kills this role. Aaron Eckhart plays the President. Homeboy thinks he’s gorgeous and can sway him. I’m like b, you can’t just turn straight people gay lmao. Omg Angela Bassett we found out is 57 years old! I only found out who was recently bc she was on The Breakfast Club or some shit haha. She is not 57, no way.

This is like any other war/President/action movie. Lots of guns. Gerard Butler plays the head of Secret Service whose job is to protect the POTUS obvi. It takes place in London, obvi. It’s beautiful tho. I hella would love to visit. The movie’s only an hour 40 minutes. I actually would recommend it. It technically comes out tomorrow so ratings aren’t out yet. The only downside is the picture. Some parts were too computer generated for my liking. Idk, I need shit to look realistic.

Had to sell my Fetty Wap ticket tn. He had a show at the Hollywood Palladium with Post Malone opening. Both amazing live. Shirley sad haha. Fomo is okay though. I’m chillin. Had a good time tn.

Omg I tried Bar Method today. I bought a Groupon for 30 days unlimited classes. It’s a workout fasho. You don’t really sweat, but you shake. You know, one of those. It’s a full body workout aka I’ma be sore tomorrow. The instructor makes it a point to know you by your first name haha. I went to the Weho location, and parking is a major bitch. We can say that about every part of LA though right. Sigh.

Kendrick Lamar released a mixtape with each track untitled. Do you know how much that bugs me lmao.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Feels.

 

CHI-RAQ.

That was the most interesting 2 hours and something minutes of my life haha. I’m actually on Wikipedia rn educating myself on what the film was really based off. I had it completely twisted. I thought it was totally gonna … Continue reading

In the Heart of the Sea.

Real talk, this movie was fucking crazy, in the most subtle way. If that makes sense haha. Literally, the beginning, you’d think it was some light Disney flick that takes place in the 1800’s on a bunch of ships. Think… … Continue reading

My All American.

It’s the little things. Fr. Such as this gingerbread house at The Grove. I’m a little embarrassed to detail my day but fuck it.

I hit a major low today. It was one of those sulk in your bed til you’re sick of feeling sorry for yourself typa days. I swear, I can get so deep in my head sometimes :/. It was def triggered by last night, when things didn’t go as planned. I somehow let that carry into my glorious Friday. Smh.

My one excuse is that it is Friday the 13th. Shit’s not supposed to be okay. Jk. I’m not superstitious. I didn’t make it to class or Disneyland or my brothers. All which were on the agenda. Instead I sulked and ignored people and was an emo fuck. One thing about me is I will always text back. If I don’t, something’s up. It’s my biggest pet peeve and I try my best to treat others how I want to be treated. Yeah, sure, it’s just a dumb text message. But it’s a respect thing with me.

I started to beat myself up over the past week and again, where my priorities lay. I literally coulda gone to the second part of school today but instead just wasted my tuition. I felt so helpless. That feeling of depression where you’re so far gone and just want to wake up tomorrow.

My hg said something that really struck a chord with me. I’ve been thru this a thousand times and I was gonna get thru it again. That was some real ish to hear. It actually helped a lot. It’s just the reality of old habits and thoughts coming back that terrifies me. Waking up to the terrorist attacks in Paris made me feel real dumb too. Like really dumb. 153 people dead for nothing. Honestly tragic. And here I am.

I really didn’t wanna workout, but I did. When in doubt, hit the gym. Endorphins make the world go round. Also got a chance to listen to Skeme’s new album Ingleworld 3, which is raw. I just love his delivery. It reminds me of Nipsey Hussle. Bae. Afterwards, I met my hg to get her some bud. I noticed her eyes were puffy and she had been crying. My heart broke. Fr. As sad as I can get, I cannot deal when others are hurting. We vented for a good minute and I just realized, I’m not the only one. We are ALL going thru it, and there will always be better days than others.

OK END RANT. The Grove made me feel better. Just pretty lights and good vibes overall. My friend hit me to see a movie and I was like, yes. It always helps get my mind off things. We hit up My All American, which I concluded was a PG version of Remember The Titans. Ha. It’s about a football player and his journey to fulfill his dreams of getting to the NFL. It was cheesy, in a Disney movie kinda way.

The movie was slow to begin, but eventually takes a left turn. We were waiting for it too. You know when things are going too good? Yeah. Shit got real real quick. It def touched my heart at the end. If my friends were to ask if they should see it, I’d probably say Redbox it. Unless you have the Moviepass like me. Then by all means haha.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My hg sent me this track earlier today. So fire. Straight up been on repeat since I heard it. Female vocals ftw.

Our Brand Is Crisis.

These meds legit are making me woozy. Like… I feel weird. I feel like the steroids in the eye drops are seeping through my whole body. I was pretty nauseous last night, but now I just feel weird. I was bed-ridden all day ): I guess it justifies the fact that I can’t work. Whatever. I just need to get better.

I signed up for a free personal training sesh with my hg’s old trainer. She highly recommended him and proceeded to send me a screenshot of the trainer and Nipsey Hussle. Done deal. Ha. Nip is number one. He works out of the 24 Hour Fitness Supersport in Santa Monica, on 31st Street. I have a gym membership to LA Fitness, so I had to finnesse lmao. Altogether we prob worked out for about 30 min. He showed me a lot of basic moves that I could do with my own body weight.

When we first met up, he asked me what my goal was. I said to be stronger. He asked how we could measure that, and I wasn’t sure. What he did help me realize, is how much of a mental obstacle it was for me. Yes, of course, physical too. But I seem to tell myself I’m weak, which hinders me from ever taking that risk. It’s that feeling of being uncomfortable that I need to learn to embrace.

Me and my soulmate were bored so we went to see Our Brand Is Crisis with Sandra Bullock. She’s so beautiful haha I love her in every movie. Billy Bob Thornton from Bad Santa is in it too, but I had a hard time taking him seriously. He was uber bald haha. The film is about politics and how Sandra is put on a team to help a candidate win presidency for Bolivia. We def looked up where Bolivia was bc they were speaking mad Spanish haha. It’s in South America.

Side note can we look at how addicted my girl is to jalapenos lmao. Shit is comedy. They first only gave her 4 and she wanted more so I jokingly said give her 10. They did. The movie wasn’t terrible. I can see why it got 50% though. I actually dunno shit about politics so I thought it was interesting to see how it works, from the back end. There’s so much that goes behind a political campaign and so much damn competition. Especially to run a whole country… that shit is intense.

I still can’t tell if the movie was a drama or comedy. I was chuckling throughout tho ha.

I can’t wait to get back to work.

TRACK OF THE DAY: This track goes. R&B vibes. Jeremih always kills it.

MISS YOU ALREADY.

Wow. This might be one of my fav movies this year. Miss You Already starring Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette was phenomenal. It tells a story of two best friends and how they deal with some real life obstacles. They’ve been bffs since they were little, and somehow both manage to sustain their friendship until the end. The film takes you through a bunch of highs and lows. It’s full of passion, emotion, love, humor, secrets, you name it.

10pm showing at The Grove with my gay bestie and a friend. If I hadn’t been all cried out from the week I def woulda been balling. There weren’t many people in our theater but def sniffles were going around. Don’t want to spoil any of it, but the defining moment is when Toni’s character finds out she has breast cancer. With two kids and a loving husband, this is tragic news for anyone.

This is prob one of the more touching movies I’ve seen all year. I highly recommend it. At first I thot it was a chick flick, but I def would call it a drama now. Yes, that was meant to persuade men to go haha. It really makes you appreciate your health and how important it is to take care of your body. I always gave work or school priority.

I’m hoping this is the last misery story about my damn eye. Yesterday was no joke tho. So on Monday, I went back to the doc who prescribed me the antibiotic, and he said he had no idea what was going on. Promising. He referred me to the eye doctor. Sick. At this point, I’m still thinking my eye gon fall out. After long holds on the phone, I finally snag an appointment Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills. My eye is legit pussing at this point (sorry TMI).

I drive over in the morning, which was the WORST decision ever. I honestly think it was extremely dangerous, but I couldn’t stop once I started. The sun was so bright I could hardly see. It felt like it was affecting my right eye as well, which made it so much worse :/ I should have ubered. Especially when I got to the office too. Parking in 90210 is no joke. The lots charge 3 dollars every 15 minutes because they can. So i had to bust my ass and park a ways down in a lot that gave you 2 hours free. So I’m late, but that didn’t even matter bc the doctor was running behind. 3 patients ahead of me.

I’m running off no sleep and going on an hour waiting so of course, I start crying in the office. This was out of pure physical frustration, not emotional. Finally see the doc, who was actually pretty amazing. You know how certain people just give off this vibe of amazing-ness/boss-ness that makes you feel worthy. He kept calling me “sweety” and what not. Idk, he was real dope.

Sure enough, the medication I was on gave me a “horrendous allergic reaction.” Sick. The irony in this, is in my attempt to get better sooner, I was using the eye drops like 8x a day. As opposed to the prescribed 3x a day. So I was doing the exact opposite of getting better. That’s so fucked haha.

Anyways, he told me to stay out of work for a week. The meds he prescribed me should make me feel a lot better. Apparently there’s steroids in them, which is kinda frightening. But whatever it takes at this point.

Future tripping and looking ahead in my planner, I’ve got a pretty busy month left. Can’t afford to be out of commission any longer.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Future blesses us with “Last Breath” for the upcoming movieCreed  starring Michael B. Jordan. Drool. In releasing this track, he talks about being self-driven and how he relates to the film.
