Sunday, December 30th
The last days of 2018 are so heavy. I had a really rough night & was finding every excuse to cry and be sad. Woke up & went straight to my agenda. Was working when I realized I had completely forgotten what happened. It almost felt like a reminder to be sad again. Wth. I think I gotta start my own blogs where I can be vulnerable & transparent ’cause I have so fucking much to say.
Then I got a FaceTime from a friend that made my day. It’s crazy how one person thinking of me can change my entire mood.

And the movie streak continues. This tweet could not be more on point. Hitting the movies in sweats is my prime lmao. I’ve been wanting to see Ralph Breaks The Internet since it came out over a month ago, & it exceeded my expectations tenfold. First off, it’s been a struggle trying to find theaters that were still playing it. Luckily, we found a 7:25pm showing at AMC Atlantic 14 in Monterey Park.
Pause, the movie was only $12. And it was only 13 minutes from me downtown. And it was easy to get to. The fact that I discovered another theater by me… it’s the simple things. Shout out to Lilian for hanging w/ me, we were originally trying to hit Edwards in Alhambra (half-off Sundays), but that was all sold out. Isn’t it crazy how letdowns can turn into blessings in disguise?
IMDB plot: Six years after the events of Wreck-It Ralph, Ralph and Vanellope, now friends, discover a wi-fi router in their arcade, leading them into a new adventure.
All I knew was that it was the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, which if you saw, you’d understand. So fucking cute. Disney never disappoints. This shit was pure gold. The way the film was animated yet related so much to today’s world of internet & social media, it was genius. As a grown 28-year-old, I probably enjoyed the movie as much as the kids in front of me.
The little girl is fucking adorable too. We were trying to figure out if she’s Asian. Found out her voice is Sarah Silverman, and Ralph is John C. Reilly. That makes me sad because Holmes & Watson was such a fucking fail. This movie definitely had a lot of life takeaways & messages that speak to our generation. For example, there’s a scene where Ralph reads all the negative comments about him online & starts crying… so relatable to YouTube and social media, & how words can literally kill you. Cardi B went on a rant about it today.
The film is a little under 2 hours & it’s so fucking cute the entire time. I had to pee & didn’t wanna leave because I didn’t wanna miss anything. If you have a chance to catch it in theaters, do it. The whole vibe is just right.
