Black Panther Rules

Without trying to ruin it, it was amazing! This was decent picture of me watching the film:

I mean…holy crap! I’ve never been…so proud as I have been watching this film. Seeing someone who looks like me, someone who has the same skin tone, and same hair texture like my kicking ass just as much as the white superheroes. Some of them didn’t even HAVE superpowers!

I have NEVER watched Danai Gurira in “The Walking Dead” (I don’t like Zombie movies/tv shows) and from what I heard about her in the show, she was awesome. So I wasn’t surprised…until I saw in the film… What have I been missing?! She incredible as Okeye! Ho-ly crap! The gif above pales in comparison as how she fights in the film! Ugh! I wanted to get back in Kung Fu class again! But I gotta strengthen my herniated back …but dude I wanted to take Kung Fu class again.

Then Lupita Nyongo’….yes…you can look fabulous AND kick ass! She a great actress in most films I’ve seen, but to see how she can fight is amazing. A-MAZ-ING!

Then seeing Letitia Wright make her debut here as Shuri…oh, man! I loved her. Her character was so funny and so brilliant! Again, I wanna say HOW awesome she is, but…I don’t know wanna ruin it for you. But you know what I loved the chemistry between Chadwick Boseman as  T’Challa  and Shuri as brother and sister, will remind you have with your siblings or even the ones that are like brother and sister to you.

The chemistry with cast and even the story line were great! I felt compared to most movies of today, there is so MUCH CGI and “bang, boom!” now days, you forget that movies need a compelling cast and story as you NEED special effects. Especially when they’re superheroes and they much like ourselves have to embrace or they even struggle with their own humanity and weaknesses in order to protect those they love against a great threat. And I felt this movie touched on it very well in addition to you don’t need superpowers to be SUPER.

The Black Panther film has already amassed $111.7 million in sales. See that Hollywood? Yes, black films CAN sell. Minority films CAN sell. There are viewers who want to see people of color on films that represent US. That we’re not just the sidekicks, the funny guy, the best friend, the smart one, the thugs…we can play other roles too and still win hearts and of course, the box office.

If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you and I promise you’ll have a “roaring” good time.

 

Migraine: The Signs

Okay, so I went to see my therapist today (it’s a new additional one, but I’ll explain later) and I told her about migraine and she DID say it was attributed stress. Well…she said it was a stress headache, but I know it’s not because a headache has never made me sensitive to light (it’s making hard for me to do my homework and readings on my laptop), make me dizzy, move one side of my head to another and sometimes linger around my eye area. Even to the part I have sinus pressure, when flu season is already over…at least for me. But man…it’s last me nearly 3 weeks, even with migraine medicine. I had to stop my rideshare job this afternoon, because of the bright lights and dizziness. So there goes my money making hours….

Okay so how do YOU know what a migraine is? Well found some handy info graphs that will hope you understand and recognize better if you haven’t already.

Migraine Pain!

Earlier this morning….

Lately, I have been dealing with migraines. I don’t know why I’ve been having them. Is because of the weather has changed in So Cal where we go from hot to really cold? Probably. Lately, I’ve been seeing that whenever it’s really cold in So Cal, my migraines set in? Is because I’m stressed? Possibly. I am worried about how I am going to make up this months rent. Is because I’ve been behind on taking my meds? Guilty. Or is because of the heartbreak knowing that my ex doesn’t love me anymore? Eh. I’m over him right now. Before (last two weeks) I was wasn’t. But after making a list of writing his positive and negative traits…nah. By the way, if you have a hard time getting over your ex, use this method. It works.

This is BASICALLY what I see. Is it weird to say just looking at this picture is giving me migraines?

But let’s focus on this: migraines. For me, I’m very sensitive to light. I don’t see any waves or zigzags, just bright light. Like I’d wake up in the morning (I usually start my day at 5 am, when it’s not day yet) and this bright light overwhelms me. Aw man! I’d be under my covers for the whole morning. Thank goodness this happens on the weekends, but still this has been going on for three weeks. Three weeks!  What happens for me is that I feel the migraine either in one side of my head or on the temples of my head. Geez. I take Excedrin, but I can still feel it.

At first I wanted to write about the link to anxiety and depression being linked to migraines, but seeing how cold it has been, I want to check to see if it’s because of the  freezing weather first.  Even right now as I’m typing up this post this morning, I feel it under my eyes. So I’ll guess I’ll just have to see.
