Who doesn't love a wedding?

Well Kristen Wig in bridesmaid is a little short of enthusiasm when she finds out her best friend is engaged. I am not going to lie I truly thought the movie bridesmaids was going to tank. My mom is the one that pushed me to see it and I am really glad she did. I love Kristen Wig she has always been hilarious and sometimes she makes SNL awesome. Well she made this movie rock as well as some…

Paris Je T'aime!

Last night was one of the best nights of my life. 


I watched Paris Je T' best friend had told me that it was a great movie and I reall

y wanted to watch it. 

So yesterday, Wednesday, part of my biweekly ritual is to go to Blockbuster to rent movie

s since it's 2 for 1 Wednesdays. I'd like to think that I'm the one keeping Blockbuster in business since Netflix and Red box have taken for movie rentals. 

I still think that…

The Final Countdown

It is incredible to think that there are only 3 days left of senior year! It's funny to think I remember seniors saying to me it comes faster than you think, but I never really believed it. Well let me tell you it went by too fast. It wasn't until I was helping a friend edit the senior slide show for graduation that it hit just how much I am going to miss high school. I miss the football games and senoir week and homecoming week and all the crazy silly pep rallies we had. With 3 days left… Continue

Into Glee??

While at work today we had a big gap of time, no customers have come in so we decided to put some movies on. One of my co-workers had the series of gLee with her. At first I wasn't sure if I would get into this show. I know that I am a season behind or so, but I actually got addicted. I figured that it's something that I would…

So last night I get a phone call from my mom and she lets me know that the CDC (center for disease control) has released an article about a zombie attack! Immediately I am freaking out. I should probably explain that since a young I have been traumatized of zombies- I blame my cousins for always playing resident evil around me. Anyway way though I panicked and looked up the article immediately.

It really wasn't about zombies but a cute & funny spin on how to handle any natural…

If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

When I was younger my mother always taught me if I didn't have anything nice to say I shouldn't say it at all. I feel there are so many grown adults that need to learn this "golden" rule. I always thought what made our country amzing is the fact that you can express your opinion and not be persecuted for it. This was not the case when KVIA interviewed one of my fellow classmates. Edwin Felix is number four in my graduating class and has a very promising future. He recently spoke out about…

There aren't many people in my life that I can say have truly inspired me, but Angie Gomez is definitely one of them. When doctors told her, at the age of eighteen, that she had six months left to live, she did not throw herself a pity party. Instead, she started the Achieve the Dream Foundation, which provides cancer treatment to children who cannot afford it. Angie was in the hospital when her own prom, at Horizon City High School, happened, so the Da Vinci Student Council is giving her…
