The next day, I received PCR results: negative. Within the next few days, while watching TV on my couch, I had hot flashes, chills, and sweats. My gums and eyeballs were throbbing. 20,000 Lilliputians were attacking me with jackhammers. No part of my body didn’t hurt. I had bouts with bubbleguts and yuckmouth aka cottonmouth no matter how much I used my tongue scraper. My throat felt like I swallowed tablespoons of sand. My period said, “Hold up! I wanna join the Misery Party.” Because of the false negative, I told myself I was being dramatic and it was all in my head, which felt like it was being squeezed and pulled apart. It couldn’t be covid. I wasn’t coughing…yet.
Set in DC, Really Love is a love story centered around Isaiah Maxwell (Kofi Siriboe), a struggling artist (a painter), who falls in love with Stevie Solomon (Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing), a law school student with affluent parents. His parents nag him to get a real job, while her parents are less than ecstatic about her union with Isaiah. The two first crossed paths, briefly, while attending an art show for Isaiah’s artist friend played by Michael Ealy. When they meet again, officially, they discover that they share mutual friends in a couple. Stevie is friends with the girlfriend played by Jade Eshete (who is absolutely gorgeous). Isaiah is friends with a character played by Tristan “Mack” Wilds.

I love staying home WHEN I WANT TO. Being told to makes me want to get dressed and head out. Get in a good workout at the gym. Catch a movie. Stroll through the aisles of Target. Go for a walk in Central Park just ‘cause, which I’ve never done. Ever. With the exception of grocery shopping on Friday, I’ve been home all week, so I consider Saturday as my first official social distancing day.
I refuse to pay money to be scared. You won’t catch me at a horror film or a haunted house. She, me, her is not the one.
I did it. I finally did it. Why did I do it to myself? Possibly because Halloween was this week. I watched Coco. Last night, after a perfectly fine Friday, and good week for that matter, I scrolled through Netflix and chose Coco. I wanted to end the day by watching a movie, not a DVR’d show. I had worked from home and didn’t feel motivated to get dressed and leave my apartment to go to the theater. Last weekend, […]
Why Not Me?, like Mindy Kaling’s previous book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), is a collection of personal essay memoirs that deal with the issues that most people deal with: family, dating and other relationships all while setting, chasing and achieving career goals. While always being aware that being a minority and a woman in Hollywood would be obstacles, she did not allow them to stop her from pursuing her passion or stifle her talents as […]
For the second straight week, I feel like a zombie from The Walking Dead. The other times I was this tired I was writing my thesis for grad school, pulling all-nighters as an undergrad to study for finals, or binge watching the latest craze in excellent TV that I couldn’t go to bed until I finished…one…more…episode…ok the season. Although I referenced The Walking Dead, I can’t watch that show. The moment the first zombie girl came across the screen less […]
