It’s official

It’s official, folks. I have an apartment. If I had a list right now I would be checking this one out. Next? Moving into the apartment, learning how to drive and getting a job. Two weeks ago I spent all my days after classes sending CV’s to different places. This job thing is really hard.

My University keeps denying my CV every time I apply for a job on their website. Apparently it’s not good enough or something. I can’t do anything about it though unless they wanted me to lie and magically gain experience at night. Isn’t it funny? How they look for someone with experience but in order to gain experience you have to be hired by someone first? I just hope I do get a job because part of moving on my own was to be able to maintain myself or at least help my grandparents a little.

Overall everything is okay. I have to wait for my grandparents to arrive to officially start moving in since I don’t even have a bed. That keeps me a little anxious since they’re coming back from their trip in two (or three weeks, with them you can never be sure). I started looking for things though (bed, table, refrigerator, etc), I’m a bit over excited.

I have the feeling they don’t want me to be. The reason my grandparents accepted the whole renting an apartment for me was because they know I can’t live with my mother anymore and there is no space where they live. I feel like they’re expecting me to know that I’m not ready and that although they accepted they’re not okay with it. I don’t know it’s weird.

I was once having a conversation with my grandpa and he sort of suggested that I wanted to move out from my mom’s house not because I was ready but because there was no other option. That if things weren’t the way they were I wouldn’t want to move out. What 20-year-old kid with over protecting family doesn’t want to live alone? I think he was sort of reassuring himself that I wouldn’t have taken this big adult decision if my mom wasn’t the way she was. He wants to keep seeing me as a little girl. Always.

So yeah, there’s the excitement of living alone but there’s also the feeling that with my grandparents it won’t be easy. I’m thankful though and positive that one way or another things will work out.

Just wanted to write a little update here 🙂

See ya!

Everyone loves her

marilyn monroe

The life of others often interests me, I like being an observer in life, well, what I mean is I’m a really curious person who is always trying to understand everything, always trying to find reasons to why things happen, so people intrigue me. Where I’m going with this? I have no idea.

Oh wait I do, I do. Because people intrigue me, famous people who are always in the spotlight intrigue me a lot. When I was 16 I found a quote of Milton Greene’s (Marilyn Monroe’s personal photographer) wife, Amy Greene and I loved it. Marilyn Monroe always keeps me thinking, her life, her tragic end, she’s such and interesting person to know about. Anyway, I’ll leave it here for you to read.

“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” -Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene

Three homeless girls

I thought this would be a nice time to write about me going back to my responsibilities. Tomorrow I’m starting my second semester at uni and I’m feeling… okay, I guess. These next months until the end of the year promise a real good deal of changes around me and my family.

To start with my mom and my sister are moving out of my grandparent’s apartment… without me, which means that I’m homeless but luckily away from my mom’s issues and in a better situation with her. It shouldn’t feel okay since my sister is still there but things are getting better so yeah, I’m a bit happy.

For the moment I’m looking for an apartment of my own all though it’s a bit difficult with the rules my grandparents have set. It has to be cheap and near where they live (near means 5 blocks aproximetly). Doing this is kind of hard since they live in an expensive neighborhood. I also have the issue of pets, the owner has to allow pets in order for me to rent. At first I was going to move with my dog but since the apartment my mom is renting doesn’t allow pets I have to take my cat too… three homeless girls.

The good news (kinda) is that I’m taking four classes instead of five this semester. I let myself do that because besides trying to find an apartment I’m also trying to find a job… and learn how to drive… Yeah I’m 100% positive I will not achieve the three of them by the end of the year but I intend to try.

Despite difficulties I’m trying to look at everything with a good perspective… or maybe it’s just now that I’m listening to Billie Holiday’s “But Beautiful”. The right song always put things in a good perspective.

Anyway, see ya!

What I’m into at the moment

Hello! I thought a lot about what to talk in my next post. I was going to talk about Disney and Universal but then I decided not to because it would be kind of boring just mentioning what rides I went to. The reason I wanted to talk about it really was because of some issues we had with my family in Universal Studios which was going to bring the whole subject of discrimination and all.

Instead I’m going to talk about what things have I been into in my winter holidays. So here it goes…

Tv Shows

In last “What I’m into at them moment” post I was into Grey’s Anatomy and about to start Elementary. I stopped watching Grey’s… not forever just momentarily because it was the only thing I could watch at the moment and I got a bit bored. I started Elementary and I think it’s great but I didn’t continue with it either. Instead what I’m obsessing at the moment is Bones.

Season_7_cast

Bones is one of those shows that never caught my attention, I was honestly not interested in watching it at all but because I was missing that Mulder and Scully vibe (I actually miss watching The X-Files) I thought maybe it was going to be something like that. I don’t know, I seem to have a thing for those kind of relationships between characters. I wasn’t disappointed, it’s pretty good. I lost my temper with Brennan and Booth’s relationship I was like “get the hell together already!!!”Some of the cases are a bit boring but the characters are great and I’m all about characters and relationships… and dead people.

Another  show I’m into at the moment and constantly thinking about re watching it is Stranger Things, yeah I know, pretty obvious since everyone loved it.

netflix-stranger-things-poster

I feel this show is like Twin Peaks meets The X-Files (I really miss watching this show) plus something new. When I started watching it I was not sure I was going to like it. Well obviously I was wrong. I loved the show, the theme, the plot though I was constantly putting my “wtf” expression, and the characters. All in all I think it deserves all the hype it’s getting because it’s pretty amazing.

Music

I have not been listening  to anything but Hamilton, it’s like a really bad obsession I’m having at the moment. At first when I heard about the musical a while ago I had three songs but then I started downloading more and more. Every time I listen to music I listen to the album and when I put shuffle on my music I pass all the songs until a Hamilton one is on. How awkward would it be for someone to ask me what I’m into the moment, I gained all this knowledge while listening and reading the songs in Genius.com, It’s not even the story of my country! I mean, what do I do with all this information about the US now? I started talking to my grandparents about Hamilton telling them about everything I learned about the dude in the 10 dollar bill… and that’s not even my country’s currency…

Books

The Diviners by Libba Bray, I have been waiting for this book for a while now. I spent an entire hour trying to find it in a book shop in Miami and when I finally got it I almost started crying of happiness. It’s just that every time I wanted to buy it in my own country they only had it in one book store and they were always out of stock so I gave up trying to get it and decided to wait for a trip to see if I could see

I’ll leave the goodreads summary

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.

Movie

I was really excited to watch Suicide Squad but the reviews took a bit of excitement. I know better that to read the reviews of the movies because they said that Batman v Superman was not good and I personally thought it was a piece of art.

On the other hand I saw Ghostbusters and loved it, I really want to watch it again.

Ghostbusters-2016

Clothes & accessories

I never was into Disney pins because I know that if I started collecting them I would end up broke, I always wanted though. On my last visit to Disney however I took these three and I love them.

And then I finally  bought a Hufflepuff scarf at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal. I use it all the time since it’s cold here.

I also bought a lot of clothes but I’ll show you that another time.

Hope I entertained you, see ya!

 

(movie) REVIEW: Ghostbusters

img_6836

Just came home from the cinema which means: yeah, another crappy review. I hope you know that when I do reviews I just want to talk about the movie I just saw, not about the good or bad qualities the movie had in a cinematographically speaking way.

Anyways, I just saw Ghostbusters which was a film I was so desperately waiting to see. Though it has 73% of rotten tomatoes, here in my country it wasn’t so popular apparently because it’s only been two weeks since the release and there was only one function at 11pm

Honestly I don’t understand why because it was AMAZING. It was so funny and great and it makes me so happy that it got such good reviews and critics because people (white men probably) where trying to sabotage it. I also know before coming out they were criticizing the special effects of the movie but let me assure you they’re pretty great. And not only they were not happy about the protagonists being woman and the special effects of the movie but they also bullied Leslie Jones up to the point where she had to leave twitter. How mean can people be to bully a woman for being in a movie and criticize her about her skin color and body? That is so sick! Leslie was amazing in the movie and definitely made me laugh a lot, honestly she was a highlight.

I’m going to be honest, I watched the other ghostbusters but never kind of got into it. I did like the catchy song though. When I heard they were doing an all woman remake I got really interested and even more when I found out Kate McKinnon was going to be there because I love her a lot, she’s so funny and cool. She was so good in the movie making all the audience laugh with everything she did.

Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig were also amazing along with Chris Hemsworth who I was also glad to see in the movie, he made me laugh a lot, besides being Thor I think he should also focus in comedy because it suits him.

In conclusion if you haven’t watch it go and do it because you will laugh and you won’t regret it. There are some awesome appearances of the original cast too so that’s a plus.
