“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” -Dale Carnegie

Hello readers! I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did. I had the one to go to Universal Studios Hollywood for their Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) with Victoria. That is what this post will be about.

The best part of it? Returning “home” after 9+ months. We had early entry, meaning we were able to go in two hours early, but they let us in an extra half hour early. So, we HHN starts at 7pn, our tickets said we could enter at 5pm, but the gates opened at 4:30pm. With that extra time, we went straight to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I miss it every day and I wanted to see what was new and say hi to old friends.

We were able to get through 6 of the 8 mazes and they were great. Unfortunately, the Stranger Things maze had us in line for well over an hour so it delayed us a bit. We could have fit in one more maze but my feet were killing me so we went back to our hotel.

If you are planning on going to HHN this year, or any year, I recommend getting the early entry because it is so worth it. You can start on a couple mazes earlier, which we should have done, but you could also get in a bit of other park stuff as well.

Thank you all of posting and I know this is super short and late but I’m feeling a bit under the weather. An update on washing my face, I haven’t gotten the face wash I want yet but I am using a clay mask every Sunday evening and so far my skin loves it. Also, check out the photos below!

“When I have time off, my friends and I will go to Universal Studios, the movies, out to eat, and shopping. I’m happiest when I’m just hanging out with my friends… it really doesn’t matter what we do.” -Kirsten Dunst

April’s update on Universal Studios!

The lines were generally not very long, and the weather was pretty good. I can say that it is more crowded than the past couple of months but still not bad.

The first time I ever went on it, I didn’t realize we weren’t actually going anywhere. I know, “how could you not know?” Well, It was my very first time on any rides since a couple years before my mission, everything was weird.

Of course, we just had to go watch Waterworld. Who wouldn’t want to watch the amazing show? It’s a little different from the movie, since there is no kid, but it’s still a fantastic show. It was actually just revamped a little.

Lastly, while we were heading out we saw Vin Diesel. How cool right? Check out the awesome picture we got with him! Ok, so it wasn’t really him but still. A figure of him is still pretty awesome, right?

I think it’s a really cool thing that Citywalk allows musicians to come and show their work to the general public and get recognised. I don’t think I have heard a bad musician on Citywalk yet. They definitely draw crowds.

If you have any guidance for Universal Studios Hollywood in April, please leave a comment below. I hope you are having, or had, a great day today and I hope to see you here again.
