Some of this you have to see to believe!

15 Things You've Probably Seen at Comic Con
Steven Leung

Do you consider yourself a nerd? Have you ever been to a fantasy or science fiction convention? Have you been to the grandest of them all...Comic Con? I haven't had the chance to travel to California, but I have been to New York's Comic Con for the past three years. If you've ever attended this geek-tastic function, then you've probably seen....

1. About ten million booths selling art prints varying from abstract splatter paintings that look like Yoda to startlingly realistic portraits of the Doctor to sensual anime posters that make you vaguely uncomfortable to adorable drawings of Nintendo characters

2. Roughly twenty-five billion booths selling comics with every character you can imagine...I mean it literally... every character...every era...everything....all for a few bucks to gather a bundle

3. Some booth that is selling a food that is a little strange but probably good...like bacon flavored lollipops...or bacon flavored cookies...basically sweet bacon treats

4. Approximately twenty thousand people sporting fake blood in various forms

Exhibit A: ZOMBIES/Walking Dead

Exhibit B: Apocalypse Survivors

Exhibit C: Killer Anime Characters


Speaking of makeup...let's talk about Cosplayers!

5. Someone sporting a Minecraft head

6. A couple dressed as the Joker and Harley Quinn or the Doctor and a companion that redefine relationship goals

7. A pack of perfect Disney princesses

8. A herd of Batmans, Stormtroopers, or Jedi (yes, they travel in herds and it is amazing)

9. Someone wearing a costume that has too little material (fishnet tights and a thong don't count as pants and a bra doesn't count as a shirt)

10. Someone wearing a handmade leather costume that took roughly three hundred man hours to craft (Bonus points if it includes a quiver and arrows or a scabbard and sword)

11. Someone totally rocking petticoats and hoop skirts

12. Lines that go on and on and on...and on to get an actor's autograph (which cost $60 and your left kidney)

13. Random B list celebrities and wrestlers who are nestled between booths and kinda forgotten about but you get all excited when you magically find these hidden gems

14. Panels that feature the coolest things you'll see all year (exclusive sneak previews of upcoming movies and TV shows, open conversations with casts, and hilarious behind the scenes insights)

15. Photo Ops that you'll be making your profile picture forever because they involve you hugging some Hollywood hunk

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Two women's hands with their small fingers interlocking

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
