TEETH 

Not to be confused with the movie about the vagina eating penises… Yup thats an actual  movie and I’ve seen it but im talking about the ones in your mouth. Many take for granted or just dont pay attention to the teeth they have and wait forever to either get them checked or taken out. Cut to November/December 2016, after a forever struggle with getting consistent  health insurance, I got some *Thanks Obama*.20170330_143239 I go get a cleaning and am told i need fillings. Okay Im down for it. The first dentist failed at properly doing the job and I ended up with gaps and a crack filling literally within the 3 weeks time of getting them done. January 2017, I decided to go to a different dentist with fingers crossed and pray they can fix what was sadly done. NYU School of Dentistry is full of student dentists and fully licensed dentist all looking to teach as well as fix what ever is wrong with your mouth.20170328_195335 Now you maybe thinking student dentists “Oh Hell Nah!!!” but look they have learn from somewhere, they are back by a full faculty and for half the price of what you would pay at a regular one, I say do your part and teach the people. They happily fix all my missed up fillings and pull a very unhappy wisdom tooth. The tooth some how started to decay from within, with much of its outter enamel fully intact.20170330_145319 Glady I had no pain during or directly after the pulling and only popped a total of 4 painkillers. I like being proactive. The most fascinating thing about this said tooth pulling is seeing my xrays. For some reason my lower wisdom teeth decided to grow in underneath my gum and sideways. One dentist stared at my xrays in awe and in disbelief that I’ve never had any issues with them. He made me feeling like one of those patients on Greys Anatomy that has a condition only 1 in 25,000 people have. Yup I was special 😄 lol. Of course they want to pull them out too but im gonna wait a while to get that done.20170328_195409 One dentist mentions weeks of pain and my brain was like NOPE!!!  So people please go get you teeth checked ASAP before you tolerance of pain disappears.

Side Bar: I’ve been MIA on here because I been saving up for an awesome vacation. Even thought most of the event I attend are free I tend to spend a lot on eating out, Ubers/Lyfts and the dentist lol. Saving every penny counts! See ya soon & GO TO THE DENTIST!!!!

In The MoonLight 

Courtesy of BE@T & OUT I had the chance to to experience an advanced screening and Q&A of the movie Moonlight. Originally a screen play written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, it was a deep ass movie.20161018_2019571 This film was originally brought to my attention as a moive about gay men via Facebook but it is way more than just that. This movie is relatable to everyone whether you classify as straight, gay, trans, confused etc… I saw different parts of myself (mentally & emotionally) in each sequence of the main characters evolution.20161018_2020061 I wont provide any spoilers but I will say it is differently worth watching. During the Q&A the director Berry Jenkins and Tarell gave us a bit of insight on filming in the different locations of Miami which have appeared in many music videos. They also mentioned *if im correct* that they filmed all of Naomi Harris’s scenes in three days.20161018_2023051 The story itself is base of real life events of both director and writer and they  were in the same school at one point and never crossed paths until a mutual friend introduced them some years ago. I think it was a sign from the universe bringing them together just for this. I plan on watching again this time bringing a friend to join me. I encourage everyone to start/continue to support indie movies. I personally complain about movie remakes having these huge budgets with horrible story when that money could be used to fund independent films with new, courageous and thought provoking stories. Plus a lot of big stars act in indie films in roles you would really be surprised about…..20161018_2019501SO GO OUT AND SUPPORT!!!
