My Horror Halloween Picks!

With Halloween just around the corner and the nights getting colder, there’s only one thing to do in my mind on a relaxing evening…and that’s scaring the sh*t out of yourself, maybe even to the point where you can’t sleep for the rest of the evening. Soooo this is a list of my top 15 scary films to watch. Some of them are just scary, some are weird, some are unnerving, and some are just horrific…take your pick! πŸ’πŸΌ

1. Insidious
2. The Unborn
3. Saw
4. The Woman in Black
5. The Amityville Horror
6. Silent Hill
7. Child’s Play
8. The Ring
9. The Decent
10. The Conjuring
11. The Grudge
12. The Exorcist
13. Pan’s Labyrinth
14. TheΒ Orphanage
15. Shaun of the Dead

Ok…so the last one isn’t that scary, but it’s a great film so I couldn’t leave it off! Anyway there’s the list, so have at it! I’m sure you’ll find something you like out of all them…or maybe not if you don’t like scary films…but at least you’ll have recommendations for your friends that do! πŸ˜‰ Β The best bit is that Netflix this year have a great selection of horror films and thrillers so you’ll find a lot of these suggestions at your fingertips…if you have Netflix. Anyway go enjoy, and try not to wet yourself! πŸ™ƒ

The five ways to win my heart…

Option number 1: Cat videos. I love cat videos. Whether they’re funny, cute, or even a bit weird, I love them all. There’s a high chance I’ve seen all of them, but if I’m ever down this is a sure way to pick me back up instantly.

Option number 2: Food. I’ll pretty much eat anything, but the definite wooing foods are chocolate, chicken, ice cream (mint choc chip), corn on the cob, bacon, pancakes, watermelon,pea and ham soup, buttered bread, maybe even the odd mini kiev.

Option number 3: Sleep. I like sleep….lots. So there’s a few ways to go about this, you can either let me have a nice long lie in, or let me fall asleep in a warm place. For extra brownie points you could even make a little den filled with a hot water bottle and snacks for a midnight feast.

Option number 4: Films. I’m always open to seeing new films…or old films depending on the production date. So if you have a good film choice and it makes its way into my top 50, your onto a winner!

Option number 5: Travel. This one’s more of an expensive option. But let’s be honest if I had an opportunity to go travelling right now, I’d take it in a heartbeat. Wherever, whenever! So let’s travel!

Life or a dream?

Do you ever take a moment in the day and wonder…am I dreaming?

Maybe it’s due to dreaming about a real life situation the previous night. Or maybe its due to walking through life, like a mindless zombie…Not living life the way we should…With adventure and excitement.

We all have hopes and dreams of what we want for ourselves. What we want from life. As I’ve said before…this has never really been clear for me. I have options in mind, but no definite answer. All I know at the minute is that I don’t want to be here. I want to get out into the world and explore the land we’ve been given. There’s so much to see and do, and while I’m stuck here…well basically…I’m just stuck.

Alternatively it may be because sometimes I can control my dreams…Or maybe it’s because sometimes I have little control over my day…

Whatever the reason, it’s time to stop dreaming and start living. Live the adventure!…Just a thought.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. – Albert Einstein.

What women want…

The simplest way to answer this is…truth be told most of us really don’t know. Or if we do…then we’ve probably over thought it and therefore now want too much.

A woman’s mind is always changing…mainly because we think way too much into things, and then by doing so we create other options to answer the question…even if we’ve already chosen something else. One day we will want one thing and the next day it will change. To be honest there is no real logic.

Now I know there’s already way too many jokes about this topic, and that it’s already been overly talked about including the repeated Gif of Ryan Gosling from the film ‘The Notebook’ (What do you want? God damn it, what do you want!). Fair enough that was originally about love, but girls do put way too much thought in the most simplest things…even where to go for lunch! It seems even worse when two girls get together. The simple question of lunch leads to a game of verbal tennis, where the term “I don’t know, you pick” gets thrown back and forth continuously until they reach the conclusion of the option given right at the start.

I’d like to say there’s an easy solution for all of this…but there isn’t. I could even attempt to make you believe that one day this wont be an issue anymore, as if it’s proven by scientific research that girls will evolve to enable them to stop doing this. But again sadly this isn’t something that will happen, you just have to learn to live with it. Either way though there are no winners. From a girl’s point of view you realise how annoying it can be, and can attempt to control in some way but never completely. Then from a guy’s point of view… there’s sadly nothing you can do but make sure the girl who’s having to make decisions around you is one you love very dearly, and therefore you can put up with the frustrations surrounding them. Otherwise for the guy there may be a long road of sadness and annoyance to come.

I think the only real piece of advice you can take from this blog is to never try to understand the way a woman’s mind for decision-making works! Your life is a lot easier and happier when you don’t concern yourself with the confusion, and like I said frustration that comes with all of this!
