What I like about this show is that it’s about facing fears in the realest sense. What do we define as horror? Blood, violence, fear? What about more concrete, realistic horrors like a cheating husband, a daughter who tries to kill herself, loving someone whose past is ugly and dark…? AHS puts these fears in your living room, making you deal with your insecurities and deepest seeded feelings of betrayal and loss. It’s a psychological kind of pain and fear, dragging out things you never thought you’d have to deal with. Yeah, the ghosts are scary too, but the show is about more than that. It’s about bad things happening in daylight, with your loved ones around you. We’re told we can wake up from nightmares by wishing ourselves awake. AHS shows us that the real nightmares are in our every day lives. And isn’t THAT truly terrifying?
My mom took me shopping yesterday and I got a few lust-worthy items. TJ Maxx is seriously the best thing to happen to a fashionista on a budget. Currently rocking: target black ruffle top, Urban Outfitters pencil skirt, UO chevron tights, BCBGeneration wedge boots, Betsey Johnson heart earrings and sugar skull necklace. Also got a new haircut and did a fun manicure with OPI’s “Rainbow Connection” nail polish from the Muppets movie! Today rocks.
