I’m still suffering with some reading struggles at the moment, so I don’t have a book review to post today unfortunately. I just don’t feel like I have enough time to read lately and it sucks. Nevertheless, it’s blogtober, so I couldn’t leave you guys without some kind of blog post. As a result, today I am going to do a life and blog update kind of post because I don’t do those particularly often.
Surprisingly, I don’t discuss TV a lot here on driftinglexi, but I do actually watch a lot of it. For a little change I decided that today I would talk about TV, but with a Halloween spin on it. This means I am going to show you my top five TV shows to watch around Halloween, so this post is going to contain a bit of horror, a bit of fantasy and five TV shows close to my heart…
Note: these TV shows are mentioned in no particular order.
I have been doing favourites posts for a whole year now, which means I need to start putting years in the titles so that posts don’t get mixed up, ha. This also means that I have been blogging about beauty for approximately a year now; time just goes so fast. Enough of that though, let’s get into my favourites for this month:
“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…” – Frances Hodgson Burnett.
This is such a cliché thing to say at the beginning of a favourites post, but where has the month gone? March is almost over, but it feels like it only just began and January and February weren’t much different either.
“I don’t want to rule the universe. I just think it could be more sensibly organised.” – Eliezer Yudkowsky.
I love being organised. I love creating schedules and planning events and making lists, and so it is no surprise that the time has come for me to share how I stay organised. This post is not just restricted to my blogging life, but how I stay organised in all aspects of my life, so forgive me if this gets incredibly long.
“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!” – Rainbow Rowell.
October has been a very exciting month for me, so not all of my favourites are going to be physical things. However, I do still have a few favourites in addition to things I have done this month which have made it special.
At the weekend I attended a Supernatural convention known as Asylum 15 which took place in the UK, more specifically, in Birmingham. The event was run by Rogue Events and I have attended a few of their conventions in the past, so I kind of knew what to expect in advance.
A great deal of people I know have never been to a convention before, so I am going to describe it as best as I can. The people who run the event book guests for the convention and these guests tend to be actors from the show the event is dedicated to. For example, this convention had guests from the TV show Supernatural and the event presented as many opportunities as possible for us to interact with them. This included stage talks (Q&A’s), photos, in-person autograph signings and meet and greets. Of course, all of this comes at a price, so things such as photos, meet and greets and extra autographs come at an additional cost to your ticket.
“This is one little planet in one tiny solar system in a galaxy that’s barely out of it’s diapers. I’m old, Dean. Very old. So, I invite you to contemplate how insignificant I find you.” – Death.
By Supernatural I am referring to the TV show. I am a big fan of this show and it’s characters as well as the actors who play them. Last week signalled the start of the new season, season eleven, and this weekend I am going to a Supernatural convention here in the UK called Asylum 15. As a result of this, I decided that this week I would create a couple of Supernatural nail designs.
As you can see, I have just sorted an account on Bloglovin’ and connected it to this blog. I’m not entirely sure how this site works yet, but I think it basically means that if you are reading this and have a Bloglovin’ account you can follow me on there in order to stay up to date with all of my blog posts and therefore you don’t necessarily require a WordPress account to follow me.
Now, let’s get onto what you’re all here for: my TV favourites for this month!
