Danger doesn’t lurk at every corner. It’s just hanging out, waiting for fear and horror to show up.Unknown
I have been inactive for the past two weeks and I almost missed the whole month of writing. I barely posted anything during this month and I’m truly sad because of that. October is one of my favorite months of the year and I can’t believe I didn’t post more often. However, many things had happened over this month, the good and the bad ones. I think I will start with the bad things because I would like to end this post in a positive tone.
First of all, my first neighbor passed away two days ago. It was shocking news for everyone because he wasn’t sick at all. To make things worse – he was only 40. I’m still sad and I can’t believe that he’s gone. But, eh.. That’s called life. You exist in one second and then in the other you don’t. You disappear. Just like that. What I can’t stress enough, here, is that we worry too much. We are almost never satisfied with our lives. We long for material things, which is wrong sometimes. We forget that we all die and we will be forgotten so easily. Love hard. Respect others. Respect yourself. That’s what matters.Secondly, I had a really important exam this month. I studied every day and I still don’t know my results. It was difficult, but I hope for the best. It was the exam from the Syntax and I really hate that subject, but I can’t complain. I need to pass it.
On the other hand, I spent a lot of time with my boyfriend. We are still buying new things for our new home, but things got easier this month. We bought all the furniture and it finally looks like home now. I’m so happy and I can’t wait to move in! Also, we spent a lot of time in cinema this month. We watched some horrors because if not now, when? First we watched IT Chapter Two and it was really scary, I loved it. It’s probably the best movie I watched this month. It’s based on Stephen King’s novel and it’s so good and I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Secondly, we saw Polaroid, which is also horror. A high school student, Bird, is given an old Polaroid camera. Being a huge fan of photography, she starts taking photos of her friends. However, she notices the weird, dark shadow standing behind her friends. It gets creepy when her friends, one by one, die after being followed by the shadow in the pictures. To understand her next move, Bird needs to study the past. I really liked this movie, but it’s not my favorite because in some moments I thought that its plot is too simple and predictable. I give it 3 out of five stars.
Lastly, we saw Countdown which is also horror. I must say that I’ve been dying to see this movie since I saw its trailer. Basically it’s about a phone app that can tell you the exact moment of your death. It all starts as a joke until this app proves to be correct for some people. When a nurse downloads this app, it tells her that she has only three days to live. She is extremely nervous and upset, but being followed by a scary figure in reality, she simply must find a way to survive. I liked this movie because it grabs your attention from the first moment. It’s super scary and I like the touch of the modern technology. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
And that was it for this month. I know it’s two days from Halloween, but I think I’m done with watching horrors for this year. I must admit day I have seen more movies than I have read books in this month. I somehow gave myself a well-deserved break from reading because I read many books in September. I am pretty much satisfied with my activities during this month. October was a really good month for me and I am so excited for November!
How about you? How was your October?
