Celebrating 27 Years Of Life With Insidious: The Last Key

January 10, 2018

Tuesday, January 9th

Ahhhhh. It’s my birthday and I’m freaking tf out. FREAKING OUT! I’m so old lmao. I’ll get over it when I turn 28. Only one person today kept it real with me and goes, “Oh yeah, 27 is old for a girl.” I was like, “Yo. Thank you.” He kept that shit 100.

Man, today was such a normal day lmao. I legit didn’t do anything different. I even had to go to Walgreens to pick up meds. I’m like, can someone do this for me? Lmao :(. I have no life beyond work. Noor showered me with balloons and candy and I wanted to cry. Legit, grateful for this woman. I had to remind myself to stay positive throughout the day. It’s always that awkward “should I tell people it’s my bday so they’re nice to me” question, or should I just be cool lmao. I will say I genuinely loved each text message, comment, tweet, post, DM, phone call (rare)… it reminded me that people do care and to stop being an emo fuck.

Fast forward to the evening… I literally had no plans but to go see Insidious, The Last Key. I second-guessed myself on this decision like a million times, but then I realized I was just doing what I wanted to do deep down in my heart: take a night off and go to the movies. Every time someone would be like, “Turn the fuck up tonight!” I’d be like shit. Should I be? I was considering 1Oak for a second, but fuck. that. Fuck clubs lmao. Plus, I love scary movies. Shout out to Valerie for the idea, I didn’t even know this was out. And pause: this is the 4th installment in the Insidious series. Def thought it was only the sequel. Second plus, being with my best friends was all that mattered today.

Mood af lmao. We hit the 7:45pm showing at Regal L.A. Live, which proved to be a madhouse. It’s half-off Tuesdays, which is a game-changer because movie tickets legit cost a fortune. They’re actually only $5 at AMC Theaters, but this movie time worked out best for everyone. Side note, this theater just put in a bar and they even sell Cheetos popcorn now. Oh man. Unfortunately, my free birthday popcorn didn’t apply lmao but the dude gave us a little sample. That was actually enough. Shout out to my Gucci squad (Val, Corey, V) for joining me and saving us seats! So so grateful to have them with me in this thing called life. We literally made it in our seats right as the movie began. Timing was impeccable.

IMDB plot: Parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet – in her own family home.

This lady’s face took over the entire hour and 43 minutes the film lasted lmao. Which got a little annoying towards the end, not even going to lie. The movie was honestly scary at times. Like, I screamed lmao. And Corey next to me totally man-screamed. It was fucking hilarious. I’m still laughing. The plot was cool, but it lost me in the end lmao. It reminded me of Ghostbusters, which added a much-needed layer of humor to the film. I can’t get over how packed the theater was. And the one guy who tried to clap afterward but it was a solo applause lmao.

Grateful for friends like Nykki who remind me to live, laugh, and love. That was cheesy af, but it’s so true. My New Year’s resolution is to be present and every day is a constant reminder of just that.
