Pokemon Go-Best day???

Okay so this game is literally on everyone’s mind. It is literally the best game out there because it is getting people up out of their houses and at least trying to be active. Personally, I am in love with Pokemon GO, its cool finding all the pokestops and even reading about my community when I stop there. Yesterday had to be one of my most successful days yet.

Yesterday, I caught over 40 pokemon. One of the best tips I can give others is go to military bases. I literally caught multiple pokemon in just the parking lot of the BX. It was awesome! Also if its like an Air Force base, they usually have airplanes on display or places that were there before the base was built around it. I made my mother drive to every pokestop, which was most of the airplanes on display and a few buildings; like the clinic or baptist church. It was pretty funny because there were about 5 or 6 other vehicles parking in front of the airplanes, waiting a few moments than reversing and going to the next airplane. I could not stop laughing at how many people were playing this game. I got so much stuff from those stops too. On base I got a Rhyhorn and a Rhydon. I got an Abra in the commissary while food shopping. It was great!

Today was less successful, I used an incense for basically no reason because I was trying to get an Onyx that  keeps popping up in my neighborhood but runs away whenever I get close to it. I do keep getting a lot of paras and pidgeys, so I’m using them to get pidgey candy to powerup and evolve. Yesterday I also hit level 5 allowing me to pick a team. I could not choose at all so I’ve been putting it off. By midday today, I was already a level 7 and my brothers, future sister-in-law and niece showed up for a visit AND our topic of the day was Pokemon GO. After talking a bite I chose a team. Team Mystic. While my other brother and future sister-in-law chose Valor. Mystic just seemed to be the smart intellectual team, so as a major book nerd and a little bit obsessed with blue I went with Mystic.

That’s all for today! Thanks for reading as usual!

Pokemon Go-Today!

I think I had a freaking successful day today! I caught 11 pokemon all together! Woot! Woot! (I used incense lolz) I caught a Pidgeotto in the middle of a panic attack I was having. (I was driving alone for the first time and pulled over to get over my panic attack when he showed up out of no where!) From then on I caught three pidgeys. Another Eevee, and a meowth. Now a funny story.

I was using the incense and a Ninetails showed up as near by. I saw some leaf floating down the street so I put on my sandals and ran after the little shit. Turns out to be a a freaking Primeape, while I was busy trying capture him in wedge beach sandals, a leg wrap, shorts, a brown tank top and nappy ass hair. I can hear a car pulling up behind me and stop. I froze freaking out, like this was how I was going to die. Playing fucking Pokemon in crap clothes and not even wearing a cute bra. I turn when I hear, “Are you playing Pokemon!?” It turned out this guys was looking for the Ninetails too! I told him about the Primeape and he pulled over to capture one. It was too freaking funny! Still I could never get that Ninetails, the closest I got was in my backyard with my dad when we were trying to put a shed together. Pretty upset about that Ninetails.

But I guess I live in an area where the map doesn’t think its so developed so while my dad was driving to Lowes I got not one but three Paras and a Hitmonlee. Its pretty awesome because the map thinks most of my area is just desert area and grass not massive house development. My house isn’t even on the map!

Another thing is that I got my mom hooked on the game too! She loves it and wants to capture pokemon but she isn’t so good at throwing the pokeballs.

Again thanks for reading!

Just caught another Pidgey on my desk!!!!  I definitely love this game!!

RED-

I am a huge fan of all movies. If its a well done action thriller, I’m your girl. Crappy B-rated syfy movie that has no point, I’m all over it. Romantic Comedies, like Ugly Truth loving it! Alien Gore Fest, even better! Old actors being badasses, count me in. That’s the movie series, I wanna talk about. RED. Retired Extremely Dangerous. You know what, this movie is my lullaby. RED and RED 2 are both my lullaby, plus a whole other list of movies (that’s for another blog). These movies are based on gun slinging retired spies comic that was actually quite short. I personally find the movie appealing for a few reasons:

  1. Bruce Willis is in it. I literally grew up watch Hans Gruber fall from Nakatomi Tower every Christmas. (I have three older brothers, I rarely watched feminine shows or even just kid shows). But Bruce Willis is literally one of my favorite actors. He’s the man you call to kick ass!
  2. Taboo love? Older man and younger woman? How can you not love that? Its kind of a redundant taboo but for this movie it is perfect! Its even funnier because its like a case of Stockholm Syndrome, she falls in love with the guy who she thinks is kidnapping her (but really he’s saving her life).
  3. Guns! Lots of guns! Love the shooting scenes and how badass the different kinds of guns there are used. I personally love the French Quarter scene when Bruce steps out of the spinning cop car. Its pretty awesome, even if its fact.
  4. Supporting Cast! John Malkovich, the bad guy off of Con-Air, Helen Mirren (One of my favorite British actresses, she literally does everything), Morgan Freeman and the chick from Weeds, Mary-Louise Parker. But I’ll also throw Karl Urban in to the mix of great supporting cast because he can play a bad guy and a good guy, which maybe why I love him too!
    1. For RED 2- Some of my favorite actors are in it too! Anthony Hopkins- my all time favorite fictional serial killer! Catherine Zeta-Jones- I remember watching Mask of Zorro with my mother as a little girl and rooting for her when she and Zorro fought for the first time ;). Gotta throw my Remus Lupin out there as well, David Thewlis. One of my favorite Harry Potter Characters! Byung-hun Lee is also a creditable very sexy Korean actor that I first watched in G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra, makes any movie better. He definitely added the sexy factor to RED 2 kind of like Karl Urban did for the first one. But definitely better because DAMN he is sexy!
  5. I’ve watched both of these movies so much, I can easily drift off to sleep with them. So when I’m sick, I use them to gauge how bad I am. If I can fall asleep to it, I’ll survive but if they pain keeps me up, something is totally wrong.

I think there is only one type of movie I can’t stand which are movies that are about love that end horrifically or make me cry for very upsetting reasons. Examples: Notebook, Titanic, any of stupid movie made from a book from Nicolas Sparks pretty much sums my hated genre of movies. I can stand crying about one or two scene through a whole action movie or some other type of movie but to be constantly crying is just annoying. Plus I’m an ugly crier; boogies, puffy red eyes and everything.

As always thanks for reading my rants and reviews-

On my mind~~~

So in the last 10 years I’ve had about five or six surgeries. My poor older brother is currently doing PT for his second surgery for the same problem with in a year of the last one. Now, I sit here and think about my own surgeries. Legs, mouths, hands. I wanted to actually write about this because apparently I have something that is pretty rare and usually found in intensely active people (like super soccer players or basket ball players) or people who have gone through an intense trauma. I have something called Compartment syndrome, for me it is a throbbing pain I’ve had for years as I walk through campus, my house or anywhere really. Meaning I really can’t walk for a long time because the pain becomes horrible it feels like my legs are going to explode. As a firm believer of not self-internet induced diagnosing, I avoided googling it before it was confirmed.

BUT- after almost 5 months of trying to get the test to confirm why my legs were in constant pain from just walking around the house or doing chores, I finally got an appointment. Sadly, three days before I t-bone some idiot who comes racing out of a neighborhood in a five lane wide, main street trying to get to another neighborhood on the other side with out stopping at the stop sign. I ended up with a bruised collar bone, nose, ribs, chest, stomach, upper back, whole right leg, plus cut across my throat from my necklaces and fingers that I’m pretty sure that were broken but I had a stupid doctor who didn’t want to hear about that pain (I’ve literally crushed one of my fingers, I know the pain of broken fingers). I could not do the test in anyway. So I put it off for two weeks.Still a bad idea.

Why? Well, the testing for this syndrome is a BITCH. I didn’t know that because as I said I didn’t want to self-diagnose. I thought all I had to do was exercise and then they would put some kind of wrap around my legs (like a blood pressure cuff) to test the muscles. That was stupid of me. Nope. They didn’t even want me to exercise. My Doctor said that I was lay down and he would stick a needle into the muscles and test them. That didn’t really set any alarm bells off for me. BUT it should have. Especially if they were only numbing the skin. So there are four compartments in your lower leg for your muscles and one is in the back, so i assumed I would lay one my stomach so he could stick the needle in easier. NOPE. He just numbed my skin in all the areas quickly and that felt like a million ants just rushing over my skin nipping at it as they went. Then the long ass needle went into my muscles from the front as I laid on my back. Let me tell you this, it hurt like a Bitch. I’d never wish that kind of pain on anyone. Not even my jerks of brothers. I wanted to cry so much as he stabbed me four times in each leg for each compartment. It was horrible. I can’t even describe how it felt. Overall, I was positive in six of all eight compartments. I am going for yet another surgery for my legs. Called a fasciotomy. To say, I self-diagnosed after the test is an understatement. I googled the shit out of everything and anything. But that’s for a blog post for a later day.

Thanks for reading!

Pokemon Go!

First of all, I’ve had a bad family centered weekend and beginning of the week so the minute my brother sent me the link for the app, I was on it like well a manga nerd to a cheap manga sale. I was so excited so I downloaded it. I giggled my way through the wait reading the text messages that my brother sent me about how he had gotten a Charmander at work. I was so happy it finally opened but then it asked for my google account, like any normal person I had about five to choose from (lolz). So I continued but then my GPS was not picking up a single even with me standing on my stupid couch with my phone in hand in the air. I had all bars and my google map app was working perfectly fine.

I happily squealed as I got to create my avatar, not much to choose from but maybe in the future the designers will give us a chance to update or add different looks to our avatar so they can stand out to other players (other than our unique names). I choose an all pink outfit and giggled because I can remember back in middle school all I wore was a large black hoodie that was previously owned by my older brother and black sweats, now I am a firm believer of pink being one of the best colors for ME. I look damn good in bright colors and even better in different shades of pink.

I was even happier to see my first Pokemon were showing up. The three original generation beginner pokemon. I happily chose Bulbasaur and turned on the camera view AND!!! right on my mother’s lap was sitting an adorable Bulbasaur. I made my father make a mad dash from his computer to look at it. He thought it was the coolest thing yet. He kept commenting on why didn’t someone think of this sooner and that they must be very smart. I smiled as I tried stupidly to capture the pokemon a few times before I figured out that all I had to do was through the pokeball at the Bulbasaur’s circle area. I caught my first pokemon!!! Yahoo!!!

I took in the map around my neighborhood and found out that I had a few pokestops around my area. In a park just a block over is a Gym which you have to level 5 to get into. In a Park and Ride on the other side of my neighborhood there is a pokeshop. Thinking about walking over to that to see what kind of pokemon I can get on the way there. And in a gated community just on the other side of my block is another pokeshop. I seriously am contemplating breaking in to go to the shop (LOLZ).

Overall, I really like this new app. I think its totally a 90s generations’ game. Its going to probably start adding ways to buys pokemon or medicines and such so that you actually pay towards the app. One thing I have noticed is that my battery has gone down super quick with the app going. I’ve also tried about four times to get on to get to a page that says that “our servers are down” or something like that. Which was a little annoying but totally understandable with a beginning app. All of them first have problems and I’m thinking this is just one of the many speed bumps Pokemon GO will have to go through as it gets older and better.

 

Okay that’s all for today. I’m going to try and post at least once a day. It helps with the fuming anger I get from life as a completely normal human being 🙂 

Thanks for reading!

Procrastination at its Best!!!

Supposed to be listening to a viral lecture and taking notes but I really don’t want to soooo Let us talk about Fear the Walking Dead and that crap fest. Spoiler Alerts: and if you haven’t seen it don’t worry too much.

First off going to point out that Travis’ son, whatever his name is. He is totally just as I said a fucking crazy dude. He literally was going to let that zombie eat his soon to be step mom. Like it was her fault his mom got bite? No she went off and had to be miss nurse hero trying to save people when she could have just acted like a normal person and hung out with her child, like a real mother probably should have done. Then he threatened the girl, I was personally voting that he get killed off like twenty times through out that shitty episode.

Again with these fucked in the head people during the zombie Apocalypse (sp?)– those people were basically Maggie and her family but on a worst scale. Like seriously? That little boy feed them a FUCKING PUPPY!!! That kid was f-ed in the head to think that his zombie mother was going to come back, like if he didn’t die in that fire then he’s probably going to f-ed in the head as he grows up. I was pretty much over this show at the beginning of this season but i kept watching. One thing that definitely kept me in my comfy couch was the old man.

The old man is freaking awesome! Like seriously he might be going through some form of PTSD but he gets shit done. Like his daughter should have been listening to his ass from the beginning. He knows what to do to survive and I personally would stay with that kind person.

Also totally thought drug head kid tweaked finally out as the fire destroyed the villa. He was just casually walking through the zombies like their freaking messiah or like Murphy on Z-Nation. He was always little weird though, I think he’s got the stuff to handle life by himself for a while if need be.

Overall, not impressed. Still waiting to see who Negan killed on Walking Dead. I’m thinking its like Eugene or Rosita because both of them seem to have come to stopping point in their stories. Eugene finally grew a back bone and Rosita had her heart broken or boytoy stolen (whatever you wanna call it) both are acceptable story stopping points especially if you ever read any of George R. R. Martin’s works (LOL).

Now just a suggestion if you like zombies and don’t mind crappy quality effects. ZNATION! I literally watched all the seasons on Netflix in like three days. Its wasn’t one of my proudest moments. But seriously, I found it hilariously gory and had a totally different concept than many other zombie stories.

 

I’m Back! And its not good…

Well, I haven’t blog in pretty much forever, so here I go. At this current moment I’m taking a summer college course, living with throbbing constant pain in my calves (yes, both of them) when ever I walk, I have gained back six pounds that I had previously lost a few weeks ago due to a car accident (totally not my fault) that made me immobile for two weeks, and I just barely got rid of my brother (plus his GF/pre-fiancee [his words not hers’] and their 2 month baby] but all in all I’m living a life a lot better than many people out there so I’m not sweating the small stuff right now.

What made me come back to blog is a feeling in my gut after watching my mother crying and totally distraught after how her own son treats her. If any woman out there has a grown child that treats you like bird crap on the windshield of a brand new car, you have every right to shut that down right away. I’ve seen mothers on TV always use the line, “I brought you in to this world, I can take you out.” I fully support this statement. You know what women have a choice to give birth but they also have a choice to bring that child up in the a society that is set up to tear them down. I personally can’t imagine ever hurting my mother in the way I have seen my own brothers hurt her. No its not physical but heart breaking. Not just to my mother but to me as their younger sister, who has to try and pick up the pieces (and that shit is not easy), to my father (who sometimes adds to the fire they create) and I know deep in my heart that it hurts and hurt my grandmother (who passed away).

My grandmother was one of the most strongest women in my life. Both of my grandmothers were. I didn’t get a chance to truly know my father’s mother but my mother’s mother, I lived with that woman at least one weekend every other month for years. I know that she looks down at my brothers and shakes her head. I know that she would want to be here for my mother because my mom is going through almost the same thing that my grandmother did with my uncle and his family. Its a devastating, disgusting repeat of history. And both of these women (my mother and grandmother) do and did not deserve such treatment. As I types these words my mother is at a doctors appt and tears are just falling down my face. How can they not? My brothers treat her like a maid when its convent for them. One has an attitude that can rival any pissed off cat, he’s mean to her for absolutely no reason and treats her like a child. The other one only shows up to ask for favors because his wife can’t understand the meaning of ‘saving money’ or for the fact she has a degree for teaching and does use it. Same brother uses his own children like freaking chips on a black jack table and my parents have to play to see them. I don’t know if any of my family other than my mother might stumble upon this blog but if they did they should be ashamed.

I do want to tell mothers that as a sibling watching her other brothers treat their mother like crap, speak up. Tell them to stop, maybe “cut the umbilical cord” (Favorite line from Lost World: Jurassic Park). Maybe one of these days, I’ll grow a back bone and start a full one family feud to protect her, one can only dream. But for now all I can do is sit beside her as she cries and support her.

Thanks that’s it for now!!!
