9 Mar

Hi folks, it’s movies time!!

Today’s choice is a comedy movie.

Who is not familiar with the term “Walk of shame”? This expression is used to describe a situation in which a person must walk past strangers or peers alone for an embarrassing reason before reaching a place of privacy.

As so, this movie shows exactly this “walk” of a good girl who was dumped by her boyfriend and lost a huge job opportunity in the same day.

Meghan is an anchor reporter in a small broadcast TV and is disputing the anchor job in a bigger company. This company makes all the background check on all candidates for the job, so Meghan has to make sure that she doesn’t have any hidden skeletons, which is easy for her, as she affirms to always being a good girl.

In the same night, Meghan is dumped by her boyfriend and find out that the anchor job was given to someone else. Disappointed and with a broken heart, she goes out with her friends to forget the worst day of her life so far. She dresses up with a sexy dress and drinks a lot of shots.

When searching for a bathroom, she meets a cute guy and decides to continue her party in his apartment.

When she wakes up, in the middle of the night, she starts her walk of shame. She leaves the guy’s apartment with just her car keys. When she got out of the building, she discovers that her car was towed. As so she starts her journey to pick up her car. Meanwhile, someone though she was a hooker, she takes a cab and doesn’t pay the driver, ends up in a crack house, steals a little guy’s bike and runs from the cops, among other problematic situations.

Personal opinion: I wasn’t expecting much of this movie, but I just loved it! I was searching for a light movie to watch and I faced Walk of Shame in my to watch list. It was a pleasant surprise. The movie is so funny! When you think that Meghan, the lead actress, has got all of the bad luck possible, you see that things can become even worse! Lol. I really enjoyed my time watching this motion picture. if you are looking for a good laugh, you definitely should watch it.

Far-fetched, absurd and hopelessly schticky, but if you can get past its boring initial set-up, it’s actually quite funny. – Film.com — Jordan Hoffman

 

 

Distraction Free – Writing Like a Boss

3 Mar

You know that moment when you start feeling like a novel writer, which might make you start winning millions of millions after writing a sequence of books? Have you imagined that you could be writing:

  • the next Lord of The Rings or Bracelets or Necklace
  • the new Harry Potter, this time an American or Brazilian version of this young boy
  • or even the 50 Shades for a different color

Well, it turns out that I know what is holding your back from becoming the next millionaire writer. You start writing and, lo and behold, notifications show up from every possible place, comments are getting your precious attention. Anything else seems more interesting and you’re already holding it off, procrastinating until, well, sometimes until February 30th.

Thus, I am here to introduce you to the free pass (there is also a paid version) for your creativity’s freedom and the harmless art of writing. I can’t ensure you will be one of the next wealthy and biggest writers I have described before, but I am pretty sure you will make Tribalingua happier by doing that.

Without further ado, I introduce you FORCEdraft.

FORCEdraft is a pretty simple application, with a good idea within it. It allows you to create new or open old drafts and start from there.

Basically it blocks everything in your computer until you complete a word goal, time limit, or you ask politely for the app to stop.

Having shown that, I got to say that you have no more excuses when asked to write a text, blog entry or whatnot. Just open the app and release your mind from any distraction (you still have to keep your smartphone away) and just write.

I really hope it helps you to improve your writing, your creativity and your focus.

This app was brought to my attention by William Grisa, so credits for him for spreading the word.
