Soooooo I graduated today, with my Master’s in Social Work. This is so surreal. It took me 5 years. For those of you who are wondering wtf, yes I was in school this whole time. I originally wanted to be a therapist but music took over. It’s been the longest journey & no part was easy, including USC’s insane tuition. But today actually gave me some sense of purpose & I think I do want to find a part-time job in the field. I truly believe we’re all on earth to help one another & I care a fucking lot about addiction and substance abuse.

ANYWAYS. How did I celebrate? Watching Pokémon Detective Pikachu of course. Shout out to Arigato for hanging with me. We hit the 9:50pm showing at Regal L.A. Live after I had dinner w/ the family at Le Petit Paris in downtown LA. Super bougie. I never eat out.

Where do I begin? This movie was so fucking cute. My bro & I totally played Pokemon when we were little. This brought back so many memories I had forgotten, we definitely played the cards. I actually didn’t know anything about it other than Ryan Reynolds was the voice. I had Deadpoolexpectations but the cuteness in the film made up for it.

IMDB plot: In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.

The theater was packed! Which makes sense for opening weekend. It also really made me want a Pokemon (which I’m sure a dog will do). The movie’s one hour 44 minutes which makes it doable. The plot is interesting and filled with emotion. Shit, the girl next to me was crying. I was like damn lmao.

Anyways, if you are into Pokemon, this definitely hits the spot. PIKACHUUUU!
