ATTENTION! THIS POST MIGHT BE DISTURBING. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED. BRACE YOURSELF FOR SOME FREAKY PICTURES. TO CALM YOURSELF AND NOT GET NIGHTMARES, TAKE A LOOK AT THIS VIDEO.
I glance at the clock, which displays 5 am. 1 more hour till success. I flip through the surveillance cameras, making sure that the wretched animatronics were not out to get me. My shivering gradually decreasing, I work up the courage to open the door. It's a risk, but my battery is running low, and unless I reduce my power usage, I could come to a horrible end. As the door opens, I start to feel faint and regret my choice. But there's nobody there so I turn around and head back to my desk. I stop when I hear pacing footsteps. I swivel around to see a freakish brown figure looming at the doorway. Its eyes are snake-like and deadly, glowing dangerously. As it lunges forward, I shriek and...
Close the game window.
Five Nights At Freddy's has been all the rage. There have been sequels, parodies, even remakes, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. Little did I know that it was a rash decision.
Paste this link into your browser to play a version of FNAF, since the original one is not free.
When I saw the menu page of the game, I was considering choosing a different game that wasn't so nightmarish. But I clicked on play.
After a brief introduction and vague instructions, I find myself in a dark, gloom-ridden room.The Security Office. After switching between the different cameras, I observe the characters. Foxy is nowhere to be found, but Bonnie, Chica and Freddy himself are assembled on the stage, eyeing me with a blood-curdling smile. Shaky, I go back to the office and notice that my battery charge was slowly reducing. I had to open the door or all my energy would slowly slip away.
Looking at the security cameras again, I find that Bonnie, the bunny with a menacing look and ghostly eyes, has left his (or is it her? I never know) position and is creeping around the halls. Breaking a cold sweat, I flicker through the other cameras. Jumping when I see Chica, the female animatronic chicken with macabre purple eyes and a monstrous, devious grin staring into the cameras, I feel the hair on the back of my neck rise, and a chill runs down my spine.
The animatronics were all coming for me. Foxy, the fox with the luminous glow in his eyes was peeking around the door, Chica was peeping in curiously at the window, Bonnie was roaming the halls, waiting for me, while the infamous Freddy was right around the corner. As a wail escaped my lips, the lights flickered off and Freddy's deadly eyes were at the door. His face pops up on my screen suddenly, opening his mouth to reveal sharp teeth, just right to bite my head off. I scream and cover my eyes, closing the game before I do.
And that was how the most horrific day of my life went.
Alright, maybe I exaggerated that a bit.
The Hunger Games is a book everyone has been raving about. If you've watched the movie or read the book, you'll know what I mean when I say that this was an OUTSTANDING book and while I enjoyed the movie, I'll have to say the book was much better and Suzanne Collins is a really talented author.
It was an extraordinary book. Full stop. There's nothing more I can say. The story was so well written that I felt like I was living in it. The characters were really well illustrated and it had just enough humour, just enough action, and a lot of thrill. I also love how they had such a sad part that almost moved me to tears. I think my favourite thing about the book would be the main her character, Katniss Everdeen. She has a strong personality and isn't afraid to take charge, but she isn't perfect either. So overall, go to your nearest bookstore, grab a copy and START READING. You will not be disappointed, I promise.

It's human nature to enjoy paradoxes. That's why I am going to give you some perplexing paradoxes that will baffle you.
5. Paradox of Court
A lawyer is taught by a teacher. After he finishes his training, the teacher says to him- "You will pay me after you have won your first case." However, the lawyer refuses. The teacher is furious and decides to take the matter to court. If the lawyer wins the case, that means he will not have to pay. But he has to pay when he wins his first case, so technically, he is obliged to pay. If the teacher wins, he will have to pay, but since he is only supposed to pay after he WINS his first case, so he doesn't have to pay, right?
Contradictory Question: Will the lawyer pay or not?
4. Ship of Theseus
You have a ship consisting of 100 planks of wood. Every year, you remove one old plank and replace it with a new plank. You store the old planks in a store house. Eventually, all the 100 planks of wood have been replaced. (Don't ask how you have managed to survive for 100 years.) So then, you decide to build a boat using the old planks of wood.
Contradictory Question: Which is the original boat?
Get ready for your brain to perish.
3. Omnipotence Paradox
So, an omnipotent being is something that can do anything. Literally. So imagine that an omnipotent being creates a boulder which is so heavy that nobody can pick it up. So he would also not be able to pick it up. But then he can't be an omnipotent being. But if he can pick up the boulder, then he wouldn't have been able to create a boulder that nobody can pick up, so again, he is not an omnipotent being.
Contradictory Question: Can he pick it up or not?
2. Paradox of the Heap
Let's say you have a heap of sand, and to be exact, exactly 1000 grains. Now you extract one grain of sand. Now you have 999 grains of sand. So it is still a heap, right? So by this logic, if you take out one grain of sand from a heap, it will still be a heap. So you patiently take out each individual grain of sand until you have one grain left. So here's the question.
Contradictory Question: Does one grain of sand constitute as a heap or is there no such thing as a heap at all?
1. The Grandfather Paradox
This is a popular one. Say you travel back in time and kill your grandfather before he met your grandmother. That would mean that you wouldn't be alive so you couldn't kill him in the first place, but if he is alive that means that you are alive, so you could kill him.
Contradictory Question: What happens if you kill your grandfather?
So did these paradoxes blow your mind? If you didn't get them, search the name of the paradox for a clearer definition.

"The biggest attack on Paris since WWII."
I know you might think it's a bit late to post about this, since it's a week since it happened.
Anyway, the Paris Attack that happened on Friday the 13th (Is that just a coincidence?) that killed 129 people and injured as many has been plastered over all the newspapers and news channels lately and as they find out more information, they get closer to finding the culprits.
Well here's my opinion on the whole thing:
I don't think that they should focus on the people who did it. Of course, the number of lives they've taken and the amount of damage they caused is horrid, and they deserve an awful punishment, but I feel like they should pay more attention to building up Paris again, helping it back up on to it's feet. The six attacks have cost Paris a lot, and even though every nation is standing by France, it will take some time for it to recover.
So what do you think about this? What actions should be taken?
Quote of the Day Joke of the day
a) write down your feelings and then tear the piece of paper up. It's a metaphor for letting go of your feelings or
b) watch something funny or silly and laugh it out
But there are times when you should cool down. Here are some ways.
1. Stop and think for a minute before you actually do what you are going to do. Know that you might regret it later on.
2. Hold all your anger in and find a place where you are alone. Then, let out your anger by punching a pillow or something. (Just be sure not to hurt yourself!)
3. Rant. Though this might not work for everyone, talk to a friend or family member and tel them about your day. Even though they might not care, you'll feel better.
4. We've all heard of the count to 10 rule. This doesn't really work for me, but maybe it will work for you? Just close your eyes, un-clench your fists, start taking deep breaths and count to 10. If you're still in a rage, go to a 100, even 200, as much as you need to until you calm down.
So yeah, just chill when you're angry, and it will all work out fine.
And one thing, don't freak out and destroy everything like this guy.

Today I have a guest post by Noor from A Little Bit Of Sunshine!
Visit her super fantastic blog:- http://www.alittlebitofsunshineblog.com/
Hello readers of the Violet Blogger! I’m Noor from A Little Bit of Sunshine and I’m so happy to be here today on this fabulous blog! Today, I’m going to be sharing with you a little writing encouragement post. I am a writer, and I am currently during NaNoWrimo where you have to write 50,000 words in the month of November, which is a lot.
I’m here to help motivate you to keep writing your story, even though you might hate it because “Best advice on writing I’ve ever received: FINISH.” -Peter Mayl.
When I write, I get stuck. Like really stuck. And then I go back and look over my writing, and I loathe it. And I want to delete it all. That is a major don’t.
Never ever look back on your writing unless you are editing. And don’t edit while you write, because that slows down the process, a lot. What you are writing may suck right now, but leave that for the editor you to worry about. The writer you needs to finish this book.
Finishing a book is an amazing feeling. I’ve written a book. It was 30,000 words long and really bad but it was a book. You put your hard work and effort into that book, even if the plot is horrible. You created something, you worked hard enough and pushed yourself hard enough. That takes guts, that takes patience.
You can learn from finishing a book and editing it. You can learn things you did wrong, for your next book. And don’t tell me there won’t be a next book, because there will be. Writing is a drug, it sucks you in and takes you to another world, you need it, once you start, you will never stop.
But remember, don’t rush through your book. Take your time (unless you have to write 50,000 words in a month, then don’t take your time.), feel the passion in the book. If you don’t want to write, don’t write, because chances are your writing will not have that passion either.
Think about what’s it going to feel like once you have finished that book, and how proud you’re going to feel. Think about how thrilled you’ll be when you type that last word, and close your computer, sighing in relief.
Think about that, and then keep on writing, so you’ll be able to achieve that. I have no documents in my “Ditched” folder on my computer, and I’m proud of that. Every writer should aim for that, because it’s important.
Keep writing everyone, I believe in you.
Thank you so much for the amazing post! :)
Pray for Paris! The horrible incident that happened is tragic news and let's hope that Paris can stay strong and get through this! Paris has turned of its lights as the Eiffel Tower goes dark in memory of the terror victims. Remember, "When the city of light goes dark, The rest of the world lights up for them." (I might do a post on this next time.)
So I've been looking at a few Zodiac signs, so I've decided to share it with you!
First of all, what is a zodiac sign?
Zodiac is basically a circle of constellations. They are:
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Libra (Sep 22 - Oct 23)
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Aquarius (Jan 19 - Feb 20)
Pisces (Feb 20 - March 18)
Born under different constellations means a different personality and different traits.
For example, here are keywords to describe each star sign.
Aries - Independent, Taurus - Determined, Gemini - Intelligent, Cancer - Emotional, Leo - Loyal, Virgo - Organized, Libra - Pleasant, Scorpio - Charismatic, Sagittarius - Optimistic, Capricorn - Responsible, Aquarius - Friendly, Pisces - Sensitive.
Obviously, I can't state the complete description for every zodiac sign, but if you want to know more about your sign, visit this....
Plus, there seems to be a change in the whole astrology chart.
There is a new star sign, Ophiuchus. This means that your star sign will change completely. Some people agree with this, but some people don't.
I think Zodiac signs can be partially accurate at times, but I don't completely believe in horoscopes and astrology. If you'd like, you can read them, but don't live your whole life reading zodiac signs and believing in them. I don't believe that the position of the stars can determine your personality.
So what do you think? Is astrology believable or not? What's your star sign?

QUOTE OF THE DAY! <3
Seen this before? It's from the movie Inception! Have you watched it? I watched it last week and I was mesmerized by it.
Inception was a great movie, which had a deep plot and a stupefying message. But like any other movie, it had its flaws. The beginning of the movie was boring, and didn't really catch my attention. After that, it started getting interesting and the movie eventually started building up. I was at the edge of my seat at the climax and I loved how director Christopher Nolan ended the movie.
The end of the movie is so perfect and confusing, it leaves you staring at the screen with your mouth hanging open.

Hello readers! I looked like this trying to figure out what to write --->
So, today I will be giving you step-by-step instructions on how to write! It can be anything, a poem, a story, an essay, whatever you'd like.
The first part is to get prepared for writing!
1. Find a cosy, comfortable place with no distractions.
2. Get a pen and a writing pad, or use a word document to write.
3. Do this activity to get you in the mood to write- jot down the first 20 words that come to your mind. If you can, write more! Then, close your eyes and pick a few. Can you construct a short paragraph using these words?
The next part is to get inspired!
Here is how I get inspired.
1. Go to Google Images and type a random word. Scroll down and look at the pictures to spark your creativity.
2. Look around you. What's something that's really interesting? Find something that makes you think, "That's cool!"
3. Look at the time. Make a goal to only write for five minutes. Then open open your writing pad or word document and just write what comes to your mind. How do you feel? What interests you? What is something that you would read? After your time is up, look over what you have written and get inspired!
Next, you need to write.
1. Try and write without any breaks in between.
2. Don't keep on going back to edit your work. Finish the whole thing, and then you can proofread it.
3. Keep a dictionary and thesaurus beside you so you can look up words.
4. Don't get discouraged if you think that yours is not good enough or like another person's writing.
We all have our own style of writing. Write how you feel like writing, and don't copy someone's style.
You're done! Proofread your work, edit it to make it better and smile! You've written your own piece of work! (And it's good!)
