April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of the monthly news! So I had a cough and sore throat for a few days. I decided to do the self assessment online and check to make sure I didn't have COVID-19. I do work in a grocery store so it is possible, but it's also possible it's just a cold or flu too. The assessment told me to call my doctor. So I did. I am in isolation until 48 hours after I feel better. It's a precaution more than anything because I am diabetic. I reiterate to you all, please wash, sanitize and stay home as much as you possibly can. Help prevent the spreading!! So after 3 weeks, and still not getting any better, my doctor had me tested for COVID. I came back negative, thank God, but have mono. If you have ever had mono, or know someone who has, you will know that I am doing more sleeping than ever before. It sucks, but it will always be better than having the 'rona. In good news though, we celebrated Easter. It was weird with this social distance thing, y'know, can…

A dual citizen of Mexico and the United States, Carlos Portillo is happy to follow the well-worn path to a future of comfort and ease in Mexico City that’s been planned for him since birth. But when his older brother Felix—who defied their parents to live a life of adventure—is tragically killed, Carlos is determined to live out his own dreams for the both of them.

But while things are coming together for him in the kitchen, a forbidden romance with his boss’s daughter could end his career before it even begins. Finally living for himself, Carlos learns that reality doesn’t come with a road map to an easy life — but does finding your true path mean following your head? Or your heart?

REVIEW: I just know this movie won't before everyone but it was definitely for me!
My kind of horror scares you, has a twisted story and tons of violence and gore. This hit every mark. I didn't think the plot would be as good, having felt like I heard it a million times. I was wrong. This was different and so good.
Horror fans are gonna like this one a lot! I'm off to recommend this one to a friend who is a bigger horror fan than me.


4/5
