So sad about this right now The Originals to End After Season 5



Julie Plec announced on Twitter on Thursday, The Originals is set to end after season five. Season five is set to air in 2018.


It's bad enough that The Vampire Diaries sucked the last few seasons and ended. Supernatural has not been the best, well for me the least for a couple of seasons. And that will be ending next year. Teen Wolf will be completely over soon. Also sucks my favorite host is not on America's Got Talent anymore, and can't stand the new one. Now all I will have left to watch is America's Got Talent, The Flash and WWE. Guess I'll have to try and get back into Arrow and try another hand at Supergirl for things to watching now.

First of, happy birthday, dear [personal profile] flarelunari! Look, the King is dancing just for you! How's that for a birthday present, eh? :D



Now to the useful stuff I promised in my headline.

# First, icons for writers and book lovers. [personal profile] flarelunari, you remember us talking about needing some writing icons? I just stumbled upon a few and wanted to let you (and everyone else, of course) know. They are here and here. It's not much but it's a start.

# Another really handy thing I came across today is a website that helps you find the html code for a certain symbol or character. Ever wanted to place a 🎔 in your entry or comment? Or a 𝄞? What about this ⚔? There are tons of emoticons, characters and symbols. And it's easy to find and copy them. Just go to amp-what.com and discover a character. Here, look: ☕ Aww, that's too good. I like that site!

I wanted to write more but it's late over here (after 11pm) and I have to get up early in the morning, so this little update has to do for the moment.

  • This month I fell into a bit of a reading slump, and I've been slowly working my way out of it by reading a whole bunch of middle grade books. I just finished Ghost by Jason Reynolds and Olive's Ocean by Kevin Henkes. Olive's Ocean is an old favorite (I remember listening the audiobook when I was around the same age as the main character, Martha) and oh boy, did it hold up the second time around. I can't help but love how conflicted and miserable Martha is through most of the story because that's, more or less, how I felt when I was twelve: lonely and awkward and tired of everyone, especially everyone in my family. Olive's Ocean is also a very small story--one summer with one family--that still feels huge and deeply emotional. 
  • Ghost is pretty short. Even shorter than Olive's Ocean, which I read all the way through in one day. It's also hilarious, and features two things I adore: a snarky kid narrator and an "inspirational coach" type of character who's almost just as snarky. If anything, I wish that this one had been a little longer, but it's part of a series, so I will be able to spend more time with the characters once the second book comes out. 
  • I emailed in my application for peer tutoring a few days ago. I won't be getting an answer back for a couple more days, but I have a pretty good feeling about my chances. Mostly I'm just worried about filling the position for one of the classes that fits with the rest of my schedule before someone else does. 
  • An idea for a short story was bugging me, so I decided to try writing it down last week. I ended up learning two things. One: I can still write short stories, but two: I don't actually want to write short stories right now. Which feels weird, since I always figured that I did still want to write short stories--I just hadn't come up with any good ideas yet. But ideas aren't the problem. The problem is that I'm just not interested in them. And maybe I was never interested in writing short stories as much as I was interested in publishing short stories...anyway, if I'm going to write, I want to enjoy what I'm writing, so after typing up a couple paragraphs I gave up and dumped it in my "Bits & Pieces" file. It really wasn't a bad beginning. I'm just not interested in continuing it. At all. 
  • Better writing news: my July Horror Movie Spotlight for TFI is up. This month it's I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, which I already talked about here and still have mixed feelings about. I always find things I should have changed in my posts after they're finished and posted, but I don't think this one turned out too bad. You can find it here.  
  • I'm getting caught up on My Favorite Murder. Episode 77 was amazing, and by that I mean it covered two absolutely horrific stories. I haven't listened to Lore in a while, so that's next on my list.

Went to my uncles parents for most of the day yesterday, watched them play a game called Plinko or whatever it's called for 2 hours. Then went home and then went to game night. We had a new player, Allen's tennant that lives in the back come and join. He's not bad, seems like a nice guy. We played Dungeons & Dragons from 6 to 10. Then for an hour Cory played parody type videos on the TV, which was fun. We chatted and watched them. He even showed 2 Supernatual ones, found out he watches the show. Felt bad I kind of spoiled who Chuck was. Cause he had asked me what he was, and I assumed he must of forgot the big surprise. And I was like 'Prophet?' and he was like 'Yeah' and I also unfortunatly said 'He's also God, if that's what you forgot'. Cause it seemed like he was trying to think of something else on the character. He was not too upset. Considering the videos he was showing us had major spoilers then that. But still we all had fun. The Time Warp Doctor Who was funny as well, song fit perfectly.





It was a good game, finished the round I think. I got 4 kills in. This game is a good stress reliever. :)


Of course had more family over today. Mary, Alex, Adelynn, baby AJ, Samantha and of course Patches for the weekend. God they were a bit loud today, of course with the kids screaming down the hallway.


Wow people are being so negative and upset about the new Doctor Who that got cast. I mean really? Upset about a female for the part? People are so petty. I could care less if it's a male or female playing the Doctor. As long as they are a good actor/actress I am fine with it. I'll give this series a chance, I stopped watching cause I gave Peter a chance and did not care for his interpretation of the Doctor.


Still in the three digits this week and weekend. Only supposed to cool down to the 90's. :(

Sorry for the lack of updates, but, honestly, there hasn't been a whole lot worth writing about. I've been reading. (Mostly) keeping up with my writing goals, which is great. I also got the opportunity to apply to become a peer tutor for one of the FYEX (First Year Experiences) classes at my college, which I'll definitely do. The workload seems pretty reasonable, and I could use the extra credit. It also relates to my major (English Ed), so I really hope I can find a class that fits in with my schedule. 

Other than that, about the most interesting thing I did all week was rewatch The Magnificent Seven and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. I love both of these movies to pieces, and for similar reasons; they're both so. much. fun. I think it comes down to the chemistry between the characters--in both stories almost every interaction, between any combination of characters, is a joy to watch. The Magnificent Seven has that very stereotypical classic Western feel that I can't get enough of, and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is so vibrant and beautiful and full of over-the-top period details. Especially Gaby's orange dresses. Seriously. Who knew orange could be such a flattering color?
