Some of my favourite things

I have never made a blog about things I like and enjoy doing. So today I decided to make a blog about my favourite things.

One thing that seems perfect to me is old rock music. Not all of it is amazing or even good but most of the genre of music if well in my opinion the best. Some of my favourite songs are Killer Queen and Good Old Fashion Lover-boy by Queen. This is not necessarily considered “Old rock” but one of my favourite bands is Nirvana, My favourite songs by them are “Come as you are” and also “Heart Shaped Box”.

Something else that seems perfect to me is the weather and smell right before it starts to rain. I prefer it when its humid and the sky is dark in the Summer time rather than it being bright and sunny in Summer. One things that kind of “sets the atmosphere” before it rains is the smell. That is probably the smell I would keep if i was only aloud to smell one thing ever again. It just can not be considered a “rainy day” if it doesn’t have that smell.

why you cant smell rain

One of the best feelings in my opinion is being on a roller coaster or the feeling you get when you go up or down a large hill in a car vehicle. I love the feeling of thrill in a good way. I do not mean the type of thrill you feel in your stomach if you were hanging off a large cliff but just the feeling in your stomach when you climb up a big hill on a rollercoaster I absolutely love it. I have been to Costa Rica before and one of my favourite memories of being there is when we had to go in a Uber in the mountains it was beautiful, Which was close to an area where they filmed Jurassic Park.

The best food to ever exist in my opinion is called “Dole whip”. It’s actually a dessert that is from Disney not any of the movies but from the parks. It’s a sort of ice cream or frozen whip cream dessert. That wasn’t a good explanation at all but it comes in various different flavours but the most known and popular one is pineapple flavoured one. It might not sound as amazing as I’m putting it out to be but it is. It has no sour after taste like real pineapple but it still captures the taste of it.

Weird Phobias

In the world there is a lot of odd things people are scared of, More common things like spiders, disasters, bears and the dark. But other people might have fears/phobias we deem weird such as having the fear of making decisions, the phobia of phobias and the fear of hair. Today I will be taking about some of these phobias we deem weird or odd.

Decidophobia: The fear of making decisions. This might not seem like such a large deal but it has a very big effect on the people who have it. The word “Decidophobia” is known from the Book called “Without guilt and Justice” by University philosopher Walter Kaufmann. There is various things you could do to overcome this fear such as preparing for any outcome even if its just a little thing so you can be prepared, reducing the amount of decisions you make in a day, making a schedule for the day and what you will be doing and starting with your priorities.

Somniphobia: The fear of going to be or falling asleep. This fear is not so common in people. People who endure this type of phobia are most likely linked to anxiety running in the family, sleeping disorders and most commonly is within children and women. This fear might sound childish but it is not. Its not that these people have a fear of the boogyman coming and getting them when they are asleep. Its mostly being afraid of not wakening up, something very important happening in there sleep. This fear can also come in when your not asleep like thinking about how you will not fall asleep at night because this is bothering you so much. This fear also may be because the people who have it have sleep paralysis and it is to much for them to handle so they try there hardest to not fall asleep.

Thanks for reading my blog of the week! There is many fears I left out of this blog but I hope this gives you a better understanding of what people with these fears are like.

Shelley Duvall

The Shining is one of my favourite movies and is my favourite horror movies of all time. So I decided to do my blog post about the actor of Wendy Torrance Shelley Duvall.

The shinning was not based on a true story but is based off of a real hotel that is claimed to be haunted. Some people don’t realize how hard the making of the movie affected the actors. One of the main actors in the movie named Shelley Alexis Duvall was in awful condition while they were making the movie, But still put on an amazing role as Wendy Torrance. Shelly was made fun of her looks by other cast members, That was only one of the tons of reasons she was in such bad mental health at the time. She engaged herself in the character meaning she would barley eat or drink while they were making the movie to make herself look pale and skinny so it looked like she was really going insane. She wouldn’t even drink as much as a cup of water a day so she could appeal pale and sick. Shelley would have awful headaches because of how much she had to scream and cry during scenes. This was just the start of the horrible downfall of her mental health. It was almost like complete isolation when they filmed The Shining, They spent many hours on set getting the perfect shot. Yes, Of course they had other actors and directors, But it was very different then filming a movie in a public area and not in a large hotel in the mountains. Shelley was always overwhelmed in the making because of how sick she had gotten. After they had finally finished the filming Shelly wished that she had not done the role but was thrilled when the movie was done and became one of the best horror movies of all time.

The aftermath of the filming left Shelley in a bad mental state for years. It took over 56 weeks just to film the whole movie, That might not sound long but that’s over a whole year that is 9408 hours without any breaks. This caused Shelley to not be in the acting spotlight for over 3 decades. While filming Shelley wasn’t fake crying in most scenes she was either under tons of stress or was terrified of actor Jack Nicholas. Shelley was doing an interview and she said “Everyday it was very hard. Jack was good-so damn scary. I can only imagine how women can go through this kind of thing.”

Halloween memories

Halloween has always been my favourite holiday. I have always liked it even since I was little.I believe its due to me liking horror/scary stuff which strongly relates to Halloween in most scenarios.But the holiday hasn’t always been kittens and rainbows,So I am going to share some painfully embarrassing things that have happened revolving around Halloween.

One thing Im not necessarily proud of but not ashamed of happened in kindergarten.This was 7 years ago already! It was Halloween day and i was at school. Today we were aloud to wear the costumes we were going to wear when we went trick-or-treating later that day. I am not over exaggerating i swear ever girl in my class was either wearing a princess or fairy costume.The boys on the other class were all wearing super hero costumes,There was only about 4 boys in my class at this time. Then there was me dressed up as Ghostface. Yes 5 year old me thought it was a grand idea to dress up as fictional murder.The whole day my friends didn’t play with me even when I took off the mask.So the moral of the story don’t dress up as horror movie characters when your 5.

Another odd Halloween story I have is the story of the first time i went to a ‘Haunted House’, You know those houses that has people dressed up as creepy creatures and horror movie characters. Well I went with my aunt and cousin.I was in front of them because they were scared,So I was used as there bait.This incident didn’t occur until near the end of the house.We were in a room set up to look like a bathroom.I was not getting scared by the people who were working there because I was showing no fear when people would jump out and scare me.Until we got to this certain part.Someone who was dressed up as a zombie came out of the bathtub that was in the room. They scared me a lot,So much that i screamed ‘If someone scares me again Im going to throw up’.A few moments later another person came up behind and scared me.I lived by my word and vomited all over the floor:).The rest of the way through no one disturbed me and i got my money back from my ticket.So i guess the night ended on a sort of good note..?

Well even though Halloween sucks at some times,Ever holiday has there ups and downs.But in my opinion Halloween will always be the most superior holiday.
