If you grew up in the ‘80s or ‘90s, you probably remember Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a trilogy of short story collections for children, written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell.

These books served as an introduction to horror for many young readers and became controversial due to their frightening content. One of the countless people influenced by the stories is Cody Meirick, who’s directing Scary Stories: A Documentary.

There’s an Indiegogo campaign underway to fund the documentary. They’ve raised over $5,600 so far, and they have 18 days left to hit their $28,000 goal. The documentary is already in production, and the additional money will allow the crew to film throughout the summer and wrap the project up.

This intriguing documentary will explore the history and background of one of the most controversial works of modern children’s literature: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. In the 1980s and 1990s in elementary libraries across the United States these books developed a growing interest from boys and girls who were taken in by the gothic tales, the whimsical tone, and the ghostly illustrations. Now the Scary Stories book series stands as the most challenged children’s book of the last 30 years and a testament to the power of something that is often taken for granted: a good scary story.

An unrelated feature film adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is in development at CBS Films with John August (Big Fish) penning the script.

So my headteacher and director of sixth form had a meeting with me 10 minutes before my physics ISA (20% of my physics a-level) essentially telling me how shit I am and how I’m going to fail all my a-levels. They also threatened to kick me out. I’m just so done with that school. The pastoral care person for sixth form found me after the meeting to escort me to my exam (because my that point I was 10 minutes late) and she was really pissed at them for telling me all of that stuff before my exam especially as they don’t know anything that’s going on at home right now. She sat me down and said we’re going to prove them wrong. I don’t know I feel like they’re right and I am failing and I’m not going to improve. I couldn’t even talk to my mum about this because she had an MRI scan today and was really sick. I just don’t want to do this anymore, I want to die. I can’t cope.

Working the night shift on Halloween night and possibly having to deal with idiots in costume who drank too much or families with kids throwing candy wrappers on the floor.

I’m living the life.

Wedding Diary: 18 Days & Counting

In this picture: These are some of my flowers for the wedding. I can not wait to see the finish product when I am done.


Well here we are at day number 18 and I feel like I’m going to fall apart. I guess you could say that I am a “Cool, Calm, & Collective” kind of bride. As of this moment right now I feel nervous, reflective, excited, and trying to keep it all together. I feel like I still have a million in one things to do and don’t have enough time to do it. Alot of things are ready and done but we’re still not over the hump just yet.

Let’s see, We still have:
1. Final fitting with the girls
2. Final fitting for myself
3. A few groomsmen still have their fitting to get done
4. Find clothing for our children as well as shoes
5. Marriage licences
6. My wedding bouquet
7. Finish the menu and make sure everything is right
8. Wait for things that were ordered to finish coming in
9. Waiting for rings (bride & groom) and my jewelry to arrive and come in
10. Finish making things for wedding party and finding gifts for them as well
11. The playlist for the D.J.
12. Wedding invites
13. Guest list final look over
14. Marriage consoling & talk to wedding Official
15. Finish getting decorations
16. Finishing flowers for flower arrangements

and the list still goes on. While this list may seem long however, they are small little things that need to be handled because as I said before “EVERYTHING” is almost done.
This here list must be done 3 days BEFORE THE WEDDING which is 15 days from today.

Am I in a panic yet?
Yes & No…
No because I feel like I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME!!


All in all my Faith is in GOD because he’s the ONLY ONE who can keep us from falling. I Love the excitement and thrill of everything but like my Soon-To-Be Husband say’s, “I can not wait for all of this to be done.” because this here is a hell of a job.
