Film Campaigns to Watch: MANUEL, UN VIAJE FANTASTICO

I know it’s been a while, but here is another Film Campaign to Watch! After graduating from high school or college, there is always the question of “Now what?” What do you decide to do after that strange purgatory phase when you’re still trying to figure things out? In the case of 20 year old…

Climbing: There Are Many Trails to the Destination

Hiking in Griffith Park

Last weekend, I turned 25. Although a rather unpopular opinion, according to the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal, adolescence ends at the age of 24. If that is the case, am I officially an adult now? Since I was able to take some time off, once again I made a pilgrimage to Los Angeles. On this…

A YEAR IN CALIFORNIA

On June 17th, 2016 I left the East Coast for good. On my own, I had never been further than Texas. Just a couple weeks earlier, I was working at a (now defunct) call center , and wondering where to go next. I had big dreams of California, and I was saving my money bit…

The Sundance Virgin (What I Learned During My First Time)

Hello all, as you know I’m no longer a Sundance virgin. I had a great time during my first time (Highlights will be included in another post)! While I was there, I learned a thing or two that I wanted to share. I compiled a detailed list for those on a budget with some planning…

FIRST SUNDANCE: HIGHLIGHTS

Women's March at Park City, Utah

Back in warm and sunny California! Last week I spent my days in Park City, enjoying a major solo adventure. I watched movies alone, I ate alone, and enjoyed my favorite things such as film, social justice, and drinks. It was an amazing experience, and I am better for having made my decision. The week…

LA LA LAND: Recapturing the Magic of Los Angeles

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in La La Land

I have been looking forward to this movie for quite some time. Sorry, no report card this time. I wanted to compose my thoughts a little differently. Finally, I had a chance to see this movie! While I was Los Angeles last week for my interview, I saw signs and billboards everywhere for La La…

California Adventures: A Crazy First Date with L.A.

On a rare day off from both my internship and work, I decided it would be a good idea to visit L.A. for the first time. I wanted to wait but I couldn’t help myself!. I felt L.A. calling me to it. I tell you, my first day was a mess! I decided to take the…

California Adventures: the First Month-ish

I can’t believe I’ve been in California for over a month now! I tell you, it’s been crazy! I’ve cried, sweat, gotten lost, and walked more than I ever have in the past couple of years. If you had told me just a couple weeks ago  that I would be here in California, starting to…

The Bucket List: To Live a Life Worth Living (Updated 07/17/17)

So funny story, I was on Tumblr and even though I really don’t run a Franco fan blog, I post quite frequently Franco-y stuff. Yeah, I know I’m lame. One day a fellow fan messaged me a story about how through a charitable donation to Water Defense (a cause co-founded by Mark Ruffalo), she was…

Film Discovery: Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001)

Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal in Y Tu Mama Tambien

Director: Alfonso Cuaron Starring: Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, Maribel Verdu If you don’t subscribe to Hulu, I suggest you do. There are times when I even preferred it to Netflix due to its premium selection of foreign and independent films. On a slow night, I found a gem with Y Tu Mama Tambien. During…
