Paper-thin Communication

Some say the walls between earth and the other side or elsewhere or whatever you call it become so thin that the two different worlds sometimes morph together into one. This is where the ghost stories come from. Its always sounded so amazingly chilling to me, and it always makes me excited. Forget Christmas. I absolutely love Halloween.I love all the rituals there is with it. Eating candycorn. Apple-picking. Carving jack-o-lanterns, your fingers squishing together in the goop while trying to pull out the flesh and slimy seeds (sorry for the morbid-sounding visual). Spraying your hair with strong-smelling temporary hair dye. But my favorite part is the fact that people say that during this time of year, communication between ghosts and humans is paper-thin. You can believe what you want about this (kinda controversial) subject. This is just what floats my boat.
To me, blood and gore is not what Halloween was intended for. It's about your relatives that have died, and about honorng them.
Anyway, I was tagged by the inspiring Francesca (Pigs Flying). I just need to fill in Cassie's Therapy Video. But you know what? I want to twist the tag around a bit, make it my own.
I've always seen her therapy video as, well, kinda depressing. Why state all the happy things that make you smile first, then the sad stuff? Soo, why not put the hateful stuff first (to get it over with), then the happy stuff. A lovely little happy ending. I know, I know, I'm not supposed to mess with a tag, but I cannot resist. So, on my own, here we go:
I hate this, wow...Sorry.
I hate girls who think they're better than everyone else.
I hate steak. Period.
I hate humidity.
I hate seeing people lie to my face.
I hate seeing someone with a good heart cry because someone hurt them in the end.
I hate the saying "Children should be seen, but not heard".
I hate M.C. but in a way I like her, because she teaches my how NOT to act.
I hate country music.
I hate getting so angry that I start sweating (this really happens to me).
In some ways, I hate everything. It's less, it's less of a thing to hate, it's less distinct, it's less particular. I hate things that I hate, but I like everything. There's more choice in like cos even the worst things have things you like in them, I don't know what you mean about things I like.
I like boys with a heart and girls who rock out to guy music and wear oversized hoodies.
I like art classes.
I like blasting music when nobody is home.
I like sniffing candles one after another in the store.
I like John Hughes movies.
I like eyeliner and teased hair.
I like yard sales.
I like the feeling of butterflies whenever I see him.
I like rainy days.
I like getting inspired so much that I start smiling uncontrollably.
I like the smell of leaves.
I like family get-togethers, even when I claim not to.
I love spiderwebs.
Today I did what I felt like doing.
Acabadabra, wow!
I just think ending on a happy note is always great. What can I say? I'm a sucker for happy endings :)
Those tagged are... Steph (1001 ways to be more lovely) because her posts are oh-so lovely!, Reina (the splendor she spills) because her pictures are so inspiring and amazing, and Taylor (Blank Memories) because she's an incredible writer.
You can choose to do the tag the regular way, or my way.
...You choose :)


  1. Halloween is coming up... though I think I might be too old to go out for candy. I actually don't remember the last time I had candy.

    Sorry, that was me rambling.

    Have a great day!

  2. I really like your description of the "paper-thin communication"- I'd never heard that idea before, and it sounds pretty cool- yet I can't compare Halloween to Christmas. At all. They're two different worlds to me.

    I really like all your likes, too. Especially the inspiration one [which this post has done for me!]. ♥

  3. Thanks for the lovely mention!
    Your blog is gorgeous, so I want to do a link on my blog to it.
    It should be already up there by the time you see it, but If you would prefer a different picture, please let me know.

    xxx keep smiling.

  4. 'I hate girls who think they're better than everyone else'
    I was tagged by Francesca too & this was the first 'hate'thing I mentioned. It's like telepathy ;)

    & I totally agree about Halloween. In Europe it isn't that big & I really hate that! Nobody actually decorates his house, everyone thinks it's too commercial or something. Last year I did a Halloween-sleepover and decorated my whole room with plastic spiders & red drinks. It was awesome & I wish more people would do it around here :)

  5. Great post! Halloween is one of my favorites holidays! Haha still have no idea how to dress up this year :)

  6. I love Halloween!
    Check out my writing?


  7. You're right. Ending on a happy note is . . . happier. I like it this way, it's so creative(:

    And on my blog - I wrote it. It's actually about me. It's talking about what's behind the person people see me as. I just hinted at it by saying "behind her amber eyes" eyes are an amber color.
