How to watch a movie.

I hate trailers, plot summaries and anything telling me about the movie I’m about to watch. I feel like the more knowledge about a movie you have then the worse it gets.

The best way to watch a movie is by going to a film festival and luckily there is the

If you love Asian Films or like anything Asian, anything at all I give a firm suggestion to check this festival out!

Few quick points to know:

  • It started June 29th and is on till July 15th (so it can hold you over till dark knight rises, almost)
  • On a whole most of the films start at 1pm
  • Films play all day up until and after midnight on some occassions
  • There are many guest speakers including Donnie Yen (“IP Man”, “Hero”, “Blade II”, “Legend of the First: Return of Chen Zhen”)
  • Two main films theyre promoting: Guns N’Roses and Doomsday Book
  • Tickets: Students(valid ID): $9.00// Adults: 13.00 (got to love student discounts)
  • To purchase tickets (as of now) you have to select the specific film in the” films” list drop down menu
  • Theater Info: It’s The Walter Reade Theater (June 29th ~ July 12th) and Japan Society (July 12th ~ July 15th)

Try not watching trailers and only reading the topic sentence to pick films to watch. It’s such a better experience than going in knowing basically everything the film has to offer. Trailers should be new content exclusive to the watcher.

Keep an open mind too.

Another festival to check out: NYFF50 (September 28th ~ October 15th)


Do what you love / Love what you do

What a great life motto but it means nothing if you do not have a plan to make it succeed.

Of Course, plans vary from person to person but as long as you’re always thinking of a plan to succeed and working on it succeeding you have no chance of failure.

Coal doesn’t become a diamond overnight. Presidents aren’t born, they’re made. Everything takes time patience and commitment to succeed. Remember the Tortoise won, not the hare.

First Time Shopping at a Thrift Store

If you’re like me then you are broke and concerned about how you’re going to look good this summer.
Have no fears a Thrift Store is near.
A few things to remember when your in a Thrift Store. They usually have lots and lots of clothes so you want to hone in on specifics or you’ll be there looking for hours and end up with nothing. The most efficient way to shop is to focus on sizes. Most likely you’re gonna find stuff that you like based on colors and styles but sadly eight out of ten times they won’t be the size you want (there is no such thing as checking in the back so, what you see is what you get).
Different stores have different prices and most of the time you’re going to want to head to the tailor after unless you’re good with a needle and thread. Keep in mind how much you’re spending and when you’re done double the price (in your head). So you have a good estimate of how much you will be spending at the tailors.
If you have never been to a tailor then you my friend are missing out on how celebrities look so good. They  get all their clothing custom fitted…to say that another way they get their clothing tailored. Most tailors are pretty reasonable depending on what you’re getting done.
Not all Thrift Stores are the same and not all tailors are the same. Visit different tailors and different Thrift Stores to find the ones that suit you best.
If you’re not sure how to find a Thrift Store or Tailor, then google, “Thrift Store (your zip code)” or same thing with Tailor. But the best way to find a great Thrift Store is to ask around plus it gives you something to talk about with a cute girl.
