If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That’s how the saying goes, right? All the recent meta mayhem meant that I had severely neglected my dating life. And I needed to fix that. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, amiright? Seeing Barry and Iris playing house gave me all the feels and reminded me that that’s what I want – someone to come home to. My apartment is great and all, but Siri and Alexa can only provide so much female companionship.

No one knows what the future holds – even if you have metapowers and the ability to manipulate the Speed Force – but I’ll be damned if my future is filled with me eating Spaghettios and watching X-Files reruns alone. So, update your apps, ladies, because Cisco is back in the game! As a scientist, my life is all about the formulas; trusting an algorithm to find my soulmate made perfect sense. I snagged my laptop and set-up shop at CC Jitters (their WiFi is on point) and revamped my online profile.  I realized my pic of me cosplaying as Link from Zelda probably wasn’t the biggest babe magnet, so I updated it with a more flattering photo of me at a Diamonds game – manly, right? Just as I was about to upload everything, the power went out – apparently, the barista had blown a fuse trying to meet the demand of a dozen undercaffeinated hipsters. Great. The shop was plunged into darkness and my carefully-crafted bio was lost forever.

I only had a second or two to despair before something – rather, someone - crashed into my chair, knocking me onto the floor and spilling my room-temperature latte all over my shirt. A second later, a back-up generator hummed to life and the lights flipped back on and I found myself staring up at a beautiful, yet red-faced, young woman. She pulled me to my feet and apologized profusely for bumping into me, at which point I became painfully aware that I was drenched in stale coffee. But whereas that might have been a turn-off for most women, this one simply grabbed a handful of napkins and started dabbing at the stains. Maybe I had love on the mind, but I’m pretty sure her hands lingered, and when she offered to buy me a new coffee, I took her up on the offer. We sat together and sipped our lattes, talking all the way into the night until we shut the place down.

Long story short, I got her number and am now waiting the appropriate amount of time before I can call without seeming too desperate. Safe to say, I’m no longer fretting about my LoveFinder.com profile and, now that I think about it, I might even terminate my account!

Horror Movie Baddies #Inktober Day 10: The Shining - Jack Torrance

For the scenes when we can hear Jack typing but we cannot see what he is typing, Stanley Kubrick recorded the sound of a typist actually typing the words “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Some people argue that each key on a typewriter sounds slightly different, and Kubrick wanted to ensure the authenticity, so he insisted that the actual words be typed.

The Shining (1980)

trouble maintaining a BuJo?

Difficulty maintaining interest has been a common theme in most of school endeavors, so finding a way to stay organized while being focused has been something ive struggled with over the years. So in all of my years as an easily bored student that wants to do well in school, these are all the tips i’ve accumulated for maintaining a school planner!

1. don't force yourself to use your planner daily for me anyway, the decision to use a planner was a large change in itself; expecting myself to write in it every day was unrealistic and discouraging when i didn’t meet my own expectations. Planning is a skill that needs to be nurtured, so celebrate and be proud of those 3 days of the week that you actually used it.

2. all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy Once i began to incorporate ideas that pertained to outside of school into my planner, it suddenly seemed like much less of a chore; don’t be afraid to use your bujo as a form of self expression, especially when school work becomes suffocating.

3. don't feel pressured to have a super intricate, “pretty” journal for some, cough me cough having a “typical studyblr-esque journal” is actually more detrimental, than it is helpful. I got so distracted in trying to make it look pretty, that it took up more time that it provided. Sometimes just having an outlet where i can jot down what exactly i need to get done is enough.

           Remember: Learning what methods work for you is a valid part of your           

              education; you can’t be expected to learn if you don’t know how.

A pivotal scene in The Shining, Stanley Kubrick’s classic film adaptation of the Stephen King novel, occurs when Wendy, the wife of the protagonist Jack Torrance, enters the enormous reception hall in the isolated mountain hotel where her husband has been obsessively typing away on his “novel.” Previously barred from the space by the increasingly unstable Jack, Wendy nervously goes to his typewriter and finds on its roller a sheet of paper on which the message “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” has been typed over and over again. Frantic, she turns to the thick stack of pages neatly piled nearby, where she finds the exact same phrase on the top dozen or so pages she rifles through before being interrupted by Jack. The manuscript, which she had imagined would be a sign of her husband’s artistic achievement, is revealed instead as an undeniable symbol of his descent into madness.

Never one to stint on artistic integrity and veracity, Kubrick used no shortcuts for the relatively simple scene. As artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin discovered during recent research in the Kubrick archives in London, instead of having the sentence typed on only the few sheets seen by viewers, the director asked his secretary Margaret Warrington to type it on each one of the 500-odd sheets in the stack. What’s more, he also had Warrington type up an equivalent number of manuscript pages in four languages—French, German, Italian, Spanish—for foreign releases of the film.
