I love seeing romantic-comedies and I would love it more if they were true stories, I mean, how awesome would it be if The Wedding Singer or Love Actually were true stories?
Well, today I saw that true story romantic comedy, it’s called The Big Sick, but I didn’t know this until the end. In this movie, Kumail Ninjiani plays himself as he tells the story of how he and his wife Emily, played by Zoe Kazan, met. The romance is complicated by their cultural differences and then him meeting her parents during a medical crisis. I won’t even give you a hint of the medical crisis so you will see it and I don’t give spoilers.
It has everything a romantic comedy needs, their meet-cute, the complicated “break-up” where you just want everything to work out and the cute happy ending.
It’s a very stress free, entertaining, funny summer movie; go see it!
P.S. It got 97% on Rotten Tomatoes if that helps anyone.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
