Fantasy Is Our New Reality!

Hey Guys,

Are you fans of Fantasy movies? Let’s face it, have you seen Harry Potter or Lord Of The Rings, because that is probably the reason most people love that genre? If you said yes to one or both of these questions, then maybe you have noticed the following cliches. To be honest, if you have read books in the Fantasy genre, you will have noticed them also.

The Prophecy That Binds Them

Way before the protagonists are born, there is usually something set in stone, sometimes literally, that will indicate that they are to go on to defeat a higher and darker power, or something along those lines.

You Are The Chosen One

For most of the main characters, their lives growing up were difficult and like torture, so of all people, they are the least likely to be special, right? Wrong! They are the ones that always get told they are have a certain power or will defeat evil. Oh and obviously everyone is special.

Anyway, even if you are the ‘Chosen one’, you need your friends on your side, to bring you back down to reality, like Hermione is doing here.

Good Must Face Evil

The lead up to the final battle could easily take up until the very last movie. That is usually how it will play out, and you know evil will be defeated, but you still manage to get taken back by what happens to to your favourite characters throughout these scenes. We all know how it ends. Good will always prevail!

English Accents Are Key

Who doesn’t love a good English accent? I know I do, when it’s not mine that is. However, I am unsure as to why that is the only accent that they actually go with, especially for those who are gifted with being wise.

The Wise One

Everyone knows, or should know, that these stories wouldn’t be complete without the likes of Dumbledore, and Gandalf for example. They add something special to the movies, as well as giving hope and strength to the main characters when they need it most.

5 Stages Of A Reading Slump | Book Club Tuesday

Hey Guys,

If like me you love to read, then you hate the moment when you can’t get yourself to read, although you really want to. This my friends is called a reading slump, and it has 5 stages to its evil.

Getting into the slump:

One of the worst parts in a readers life is the moment when you hit the beginning of the reading slump. It literally kills you inside!

https://i0.wp.com/i.imgur.com/AxoMF91.gif

Beginning To Get Frustrated:

When you know that you have hit that moment, all you want to do is scream, whether that is internally or out loud for everyone to hear. You will get frustrated, especially if you see someone reading when you know you can’t. That is definitely annoying and you will get book envy.

I am with you there Paul Rudd! It does suck!

Trying To Pick Up A Book When You Know You Can’t:

You feel as though you should at least give picking up a book a go, but it is like it has some kind of force field around it because you just can’t do it, or if you do manage to overcome its power, you put it back down straight away.

https://i1.wp.com/33.media.tumblr.com/4b9c10d05247b56e3374cff16b82f061/tumblr_inline_mjmsh7plvs1qz4rgp.gif

There Is No Other Option But To Cry:

When you put that book right back down, you will probably begin to feel yourself well up. Yeah! It really is that bad. You may cry!

Oh and on a side note, does it annoy anyone that although Zac Efron is crying here, he still manages to look perfect?

Then The Best Thing Happens…You Want To Read Again:

Stage 5 is the best part, it is a time of happiness and where you want to just dance awkwardly just like Chandler and Joey are doing below. This is because you can now read again, and life is back to normal. Thank God!

5 Friends Everyone Should Have

Hey Guys,

Yesterday I did a post on toxic friendships (if you haven’t seen it click here) but today I thought that I would lighten things up a bit, by saying five friendships that we have all had or currently have.

The One Call Away:

The one call away is a friend you need to keep. They are the friend who will always be there for you, and will pick up the phone whenever you need them. If they are busy, that will not matter. If you need them, they are there!

https://naiomiblogs.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/alright.gif?w=676

The Photographic Memory:

This friend will literally remember everything you ever said to them or did for them, because they are extremely sentimental and love to have these memories with them at all times. This is literally me. If someone writes me something, or does something nice for me, I keep the evidence of it, to reminisce in the future. I also like to tell them how much I care because I am that sentimental. It’s probably sad, but I don’t care.

The I Will Make You Laugh:

I love a good laugh. Who doesn’t? When I say laugh though, I mean seriously laugh, because when I start, I can’t stop, and my friends know that. A friend of mine always has to have a sense of humor, or be able to pick me back up again when I am down, with a joke.

https://i2.wp.com/mrwgifs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Mila-Kunis-Laughing-And-Wiping-The-Tears-Away-Reaction-Gif.gif

The Personal Trainer:

This person will mentor you through anything and will help to push you past your comfort zone. They are great to have around, as they know what is best for you, and try to help you, but only if you are willing to help yourself. They come with a lot of positivity and many pep talks, some of which may result in a bit of tough love, but they mean well.

The Protector:

We don’t always need protecting, but there is always that one friend that makes it part of their responsibility to make sure you are always ok, and will stop anyone who tried to hurt you. All you can do, is trust them!

The Social Media Blog Tag | Original Tag

Hey Guys,

Yesterday I wrote a post regarding my lack of plans for Valentines Day. Go figure!I also mentioned that it may be an idea to celebrate other forms of love, such as friendship andΒ  family. That gave me an idea. This tag!

We all use Social Media, and we all love certain Blogs and Bloggers, so why not combine the two? For each Social Media site, you have to put the Blog or Blogger that you think suits that category. It doesn’t matter if there is one which fits more than one category. This is about spreading the love, and hopefully, we may all find some new blogs to read from it.

I’m not sure if this tag has been done before, but I don’t think it would have been done like this.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Choose a Blog or Blogger per category and explain why you chose them.
  • Optional – Finish off the explanation with a Gif and/or a # which best describes them.
  • Tag others to do this (up to you how many).

The Categories:

Instagram – A Blog With A Design You Love:

Cristina (My Tiny Obsessions)

This blog has the most awesome design EVER!!! Everything from the layout, to the header image, are just perfect, and clearly well thought out. I genuinely wish I could do something like that.

Oh and by the way, Cristina loves Psych, which just so happens to be one of my favourite shows πŸ˜‰ Just another reason why she is amazing!

Facebook – A Blog With A Friendly Blogger:

Em (LyfWithEm)

What can I say about Em? She is one of the most helpful people I have come across since I began this blog, and always has such lovely things to say to everyone, especially when it comes to advice. She is great, and I’m pretty certain most people reading this know that.

Twitter – A Blogger Who Could Write Just 140 Characters And You Would Still Love Them:

Jia Wei (Film And Nuance)

I’m not sure if you guys know this blog, but if you do, great! This is a person who’s opinion I trust very much. I don’t know why, but if he decided to write a review which was 140 characters long, I would probably still trust it. Just saying.

YouTube – A Blog You Are Convinced You Are The Number 1 Fan Of:

Elm (JustElm)

Ok! I am putting this out there now, I am her number one fan πŸ˜‰ Sorry about that. Well, I would like to think so anyway. I mean, I was the one who noticed she hit 1000 followers, even before she did. That was such a wonderful thing to witness.

Elm is loved by everyone, that is the honest truth, and it doesn’t take a genius to tell why. She is amazing, and her posts are always clearly thought about.

Wooo! Go Elm!!!
