10 Signs You're a Horror Fanatic

“You’re sick, why do you want to be sacred?” I cannot recall how many times I have heard this statement. My parents and even some of my friends think my love for horror could almost be borderline unhealthy. With horror, I become engrossed in the sensation that it gives me. Whether it is through film, television or even going to haunted houses, the fear is exhilarating, a feeling that ONLY horror fanatics would understand.


1. You become anxious when there are no new horror films out, and that results in watching cheap B and C rated flicks in an attempt to fix your craving.

Let's be honest, halfway through the movie you are bored but continue because it's better than nothing,right?


2. Haunted houses are a regular routine.

Yes, Halloween Horror Nights is an annual occurrence in October, but why stop there when you can go to different haunted houses all year around.


3. You wish Halloweentown was a real place,only scarier.

How cool would it be to live in a town full of creepy faces like this.


4. You have a section in your home dedicated to all things horror, which ranges from scary books, to film to music. That is normal right?

Yes I said music. Let's be frank, turning off all the lights and putting on creepy music is kind of the best thing ever.


5. Within the first twenty minutes of a horror flick,if you have not jumped out of your seat you want you're money back. #IAMNOTAMUSED

You NEED to get scared!


6. When you get scared to death and feel the hairs on the back of your neck go up,you get a little TOO excited.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F28%2F636079666139348337434266791_MmnaNCg.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1021&h=98313d94ed32281c42a6dc6378371045808f03775987e9f7aa46f7a00b072cc4&size=980x&c=3084909580 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F28%252F636079666139348337434266791_MmnaNCg.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1021%26h%3D98313d94ed32281c42a6dc6378371045808f03775987e9f7aa46f7a00b072cc4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3084909580%22%7D" expand=1]

It's quite an exhilarating feeling that can not be described.


7. There is a countdown on your phone until the release of the latest horror film.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F28%2F6360796733259943541641064234_giphy%2520%284%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=571&h=5ad7b5dc6ad1031689d344c4551aa8e6c1edc64752896ae1568188dd238d221f&size=980x&c=2519666003 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F28%252F6360796733259943541641064234_giphy%252520%25284%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D571%26h%3D5ad7b5dc6ad1031689d344c4551aa8e6c1edc64752896ae1568188dd238d221f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2519666003%22%7D" expand=1]

Why can't it be out now?


8. You would rather spend a Friday night watching horror films,then going out with friends.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F28%2F636079684722053459-208348307_getting-easily-startled-after-watching-a-horror-movie-alone_1385.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=109&h=dc8799767895cd0f5e983fbd2a4f278c19d9f778599599fa06f321e20fefcbfb&size=980x&c=1973799385 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F28%252F636079684722053459-208348307_getting-easily-startled-after-watching-a-horror-movie-alone_1385.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D109%26h%3Ddc8799767895cd0f5e983fbd2a4f278c19d9f778599599fa06f321e20fefcbfb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1973799385%22%7D" expand=1]

Who cares if you are all alone and start hearing creepy noises.


9. It is pretty normal to have intense debates over good horror films.

And no,The Lazarus Effect does not count.


10. You accept the title of Horror Fanatic because obsession DOES NOT even begin to describe your love for it.

Horror is a way of life, and don't be ashamed of being a fanatic, I'm not.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Pixar

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
