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.

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.
