Things I have learned from horror movies and tv shows


In the run of Halloween my favourite holiday! I thought I'd write a quick list about things I have learned, from watching Horror Movies and TV shows.

1. If someone knocks at the front door, at night; Don't open the door! 

2. If you hear a noise coming from the closet, attic, basement or the other room. Do not go and see what it is. RUN! the other way! 

3. Ghosts or/and demons
Seek the help from the closest wise old Lady or the Priest, who always seems to be in the right at the right time (see Paranormal Activity 2, Drag me to hell, Mirrors, The hunting in Connecticuts, etc.) 
- Do not have an exorcism!
- No ouija boreds.
- No seances.
- Do not make yourself the sacrifice.

4. Gore themed situations
It takes a lot to kill a person but only one of you in the group will make it out alive (See Hostel). Unless you are in final destination.

5. Zombies apocalypse
Surviving this depends on the type of zombies.
- If they are world war Z zombies - get yourself infected with something that won't kill you. These zombies are blind when comes to sick people. However, these are extremely fast and resourceful.
- More common zombies (e.g. Walking dead zombies), they are slow as hell so aim for the head. You can also mask yourself in their guts (gross!), as they will think you are one of them. 

6. Werewolves
Get a hold of wolfsbane! It burns them like acid. In addition to silver! We all know the effects of silver on the supernatural beings.

7. Vampires
Surviving these depends on the type.
- If they are the more common vampires, use vervain this burns them and thier powers may not work on you.
- Strigoi (mostly seen in the strain and movies like vampire academy), run like hell, pray to your God.
- All vampires do not like silver. 
- Get a pet werewolf as they can deliver fatal bites to a vampire (on the more common vampires).
- Trusty ol'wooden stack straight through the heart. 

8. Aliens
I have not learnt much from alien themed horrors, but if there are aliens; HIDE! The army eventually save the day (see Independence Day, The mist, The day the world stood still, Coverfield, etc.).

9. Hill billies / Cannibals / Chainsaw welders / Serial killers / Strange communities
Be strong and pray to your God. You will get hurt but you might be able to escape if you do work out an escape plan. (See the wrong turn, We are what we are, Texas chainsaw massacre, Halloween, etc...)

10. Apocalypse 
These are more upsetting than scary. From the ones that I have seen, sometimes there's no hope (see The knowing). Other times it depends on the type of apocalypse:
- if it is a committ hitting earth, being with your loved ones and get on a ship to Africa (see 2012)
- if it is a nuclear war or reputure, get on a spaceship and go to space. OR hide underground (see The 100) 
- If if is disease related (e.g I am Legend & 12 Monkeys) and you are immune, seek other immune people.
- Also, learn some survivoral skills from bear grylls.

Of course there are a whole lot more strange and not so wonderful things that could happen. 


Out to Sea

So last month, I attended a yacht party which was super fun. Though, I had to stay out on deck because I was getting sea sick instead inside the yacht (I don't know what the proper name is for it). Thus, I took lots and of photos of the sea whilst sipping wine... there really wasn't much else to take photos of.

It was a glorious day.


Haldon Forest Park Devon

I recently went for a seven hour stroll to the local Haldon forest park (we got lost at some point!), which was really nice and I think the sun being out helped as well. I would definitely would like to go back soon, this time with my energy is at 100%. As i was already super tired when we got there.
Nevertheless I took some photos...mostly of trees...it is a forest after all; which I have included in this post.

Some poor trees were chopped down :(
At the peak - you could see pretty much the over view of Devon.
This one reminds me of the old windows XP to Vista wall paper


I have Graduated!

So I am officially a Graduate! I graduated on 6th July from Staffordshire university (still awaiting the professional photos) with a BPS accredited bachelors of science in Forensic Psychology with Honours. I am so happy about it, like 4years have finally paid off and they have paid off handsomely! 

Graduation day itself was wonderful, the best days of my life yet. It was my big day, probably one of the few 'my big days' I have until my wedding day. Both my parents, my sister and the only friend I had outside of university came to the ceremony. There were laughs, excitement and loads of photos. My mother made sure I did not leave Trentham estates without at least 300 photos, I'm not even joking. Though I did not mind, as really one the best feelings in the world is making your parents proud; showing them that they haven't done such a bad job because you have something of yourself and stuck to it. 

I was nervous about the ceremony, because the last thing I wanted to do was trip on stage but thank the Lord that I did not. After that it was all smooth selling and now I am looking forward to my 2nd Graduation next year for my Masters. As, I have managed to secure a place at the University of Gloucestershire for an MSc starting this September and I am so excited about it!
I like to congratulate all the 2015 Graduates!



The Cross Country Trip

So on Monday the 23rd I travelled for 8 hours, 3/4hrs each way from Staffordshire to Kent for an interview.  The interview it self took 7 minutes and when I got home I was rather depressed that I traveled so far, for so long. Anyways, one of the places I had to change trains at was London St Pancras were I had just under an hour to kill, hence I wondered around a little and I thought the station itself was one of the most beautiful stations I have seen yet. Especially the Eurostar part of it which led outside, and right of the exit was the hotel. Even though the sign said guests only, I did wonder in, just to see what the fuss was all about. It was such a lovely day and I could have sworn I saw one of the bloggers I follow outside the station, but I didn't want to be a weirdo and be like "hi! I follow you!" So in carried on walking. In the near future I do hope that I do take more trips out of Staffordshire.
