What I did on my day off...

Hello :)

So today is Martin Luther King and the university was closed! YAY...

too bad I spent all day reading ( Or attempting to at least..) 

My pharmacology textbook. All those cute little tags are the chapter I need to have read by Wednesday, I've only read two X.X

     This Wednesday I start my second week of my second semester of nursing school, but honestly with all that was thrown at us the first week I feel like this semester has dragged for months already.. and it's only been a week! So I can tell it's going to be a struggle but I will soon get into the groove of studying again. Right now I have very little motivation to study because I'm in still in * winter break mode*

Anyways gotta get back to reading before it gets too late!

Bye :)

The CinéBistro experince!

Hello :)

A few weeks ago I went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie at a CinéBistro movie theater with my friends and it was such much fun.

If you don't know CinéBistro is a theater and dinning experience. It's a real treat and I felt so luxurious watching the movie in red soft leather seats ( which can fit two, no kidding! They are that spacious). I didn't get to try to the food, but from what I saw the service was great and the food looked amazing. Tomorrow I might go again with my boyfriend and this time I'll definitely try the food and come back here and write about it. 

The price for a movie ticket is $15.50 ( for matinees its $13.50 and for children its $11.00), if you want to see a 3D movie its an extra 4 bucks. So its a little pricey but honestly.. not a lot more than a regular movie theater which are about  $11.00 and for 3D is usually 15. I would say it's worth the extra money, if there's a movie you really want to see I would say go for it ( I wish I would have watched Harry Potter 7 part 1 AND 2 here).  The food is what will cost you the most, the priciest item I found in the menu was around 19 dollars. Popcorn was $7.50 and you could get refills.

Another thing to remember is that you have to be 21 years old or older to be allowed entrance. ID picture required! And they are very strict about it.

I can't wait to go again and try the food :D


So comfortable!
Here is the link to the official website where you can buy tickets and check out the menu:

As for the movie I saw ( Sherlock Holmes) I really enjoyed it, I'll probably make a post about it later.

Hope you go check out a cinebristo  if there's one near you and that you have a great time :)


Why I've been gone


I start my second semester January 9th, 2012. So in a few days! >.< It's been really hectic, but now that I passed the dreaded first semester I can concentrate on writing again. Since nursing school is such a big part of my life now, I decided to include posts about health in this blog, as well as some personal blogs or anything I find fun to write about. It'll still concentrate on film and TV, but I want to broaden my horizons a bit. Here's a picture of me in my nursing school in my uniform:

                LOVE the how comfortable scrubs are :D

Here's a picture of the books I had to read last semester. The stack of books for this semester is double the size of this one XD

I'm glad I'm writing again, I really did enjoy it.  I hope readers keep finding the posts entertaining or helpful for movie information. I also hope my posts of health and medicine maybe help some fellow nursing students or anyone interested in the subject.

November is comign to an end!

I've been, so so so busy these past few days! At the moment , I'm taking a few minutes break from studying for my huge 3rd anatomy exam to write this post. I also got a new seasonal job for this month at clothing store. BUSY month to say the least. I appreciate being busy though, much better than doing nothing.

So as one can see, I haven't had a lot of time to watch movies. I'm only able to catch a few minutes of TV here and there, and that's mostly to watch House MD ;)

Once this week is over, things will slow down a bit again. I HOPE. I think once I have this exam over with, I can finally get to watch something and write a proper post.  My boyfriend told me of the Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994) , and it looks really good.

Well I'm off to study some more.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1! Who else is excited!?

I know it's been a while since I last wrote, my apologies! School has been so hectic, when one test is over, I have papers due, when that's over I have more tests and the cycle repeats. Next semester I'm taking less classes, and going to look for a job. I'll be a nice to work for a bit and gain a different experience.

" It All Ends Here"

Anyways, I had to come back and write about how EXCITED I am about Harry Potter 7 part 1!

Part 1 is released on November 19, 2010 and of course me and my friends already got our tickets online for the midnight showing! :D I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan , this is going to sound corny but since I've been 8 years old Harry Potter has been in life to always add a little magic and fantasy :) and I love it for that. I was always the same age as the characters in the book when they were released, and I always related to them and the series has really followed me for so long.

It's a bittersweet moment for me, I'm really excited to see both parts of The Deathly Hallows but at the same time I don't want it to end, as the poster says " It all Ends Here" <--- :(

In just 3 short weeks me and my Angie ( best friend) will be going to the midnight showing ( probably dressed up in our costume. Yes we can have our nerdy times too ;P) and jumping up and down with excitement like we're 5 again! I can't wait. In the meantime I'm trying to get through the whole book series ( I know.. i'm ambitious) , but with all the work from school it's really hard. I'll try to make it happen, as Tim Gunn from project runway would say " Make it work!"

Here is the trailer! Enjoy:

OMIGOSH! I'm so excited :D

Who else is going to a midnight showing and who else is a Harry Potter fan!?

It seems like just yesterday I first watched The Sorcerer's Stone :)

Cuba: The Accidental Eden PBS episode

Hi everyone, I know it's been so long since I last wrote :(  , I finally got some exams over with so I have some free time again to write.

I want to write about this amazing episode of the PBS show Nature titled Cuba: Accidental Eden.

A Cuban Toby.


I saw the episode on On Demand, and I HAD to watch it. I was born in Cuba, but left when I was very little so never had the chance to explore the beautiful nature of Cuba. It hurts many of us to know of what the people of Cuba go through on a daily basis, but this shows how they are at least blessed with such amazing unspoiled nature and wildlife.

Here is a preview:

The show calls Cuba " The Jewel of the Caribbean" I couldn't agree more!

I was specially impressed by the Cuba biologists and marine biologists who make an effort to research and conserve with the little they have. You will see in the episode a man who has made it his life's mission to safely hatch green turtle eggs and safely get them back in the ocean. 

Here is a picture of a baby green turtle which will be released into ocean.
Picture from
I really recommend everyone to watch! Don't think about politics, as the show doesn't get into it much. Its about how beautiful nature is when it's healthy and unspoiled, and how it's something we are all missing out on with the little concern we put into the environment.

You can watch the full episode at Here is the link:

I hope you enjoyed :) And if you watch the documentary let me know what you thought of it.
