Halloween is my favorite holiday. Who doesn't love a holiday celebrating gluttony with such a focus on treats? Halloween music is perfect for the spooky season and is acceptable to listen to all year-round. I appreciate it most because it's the one day a year where everyone lets their inhibitions go and goes crazy. Everyone is free to be creative and express themselves.

As college students, holidays can be fun but also stressful. The great thing about Halloween is that it's a voluntary holiday, so anyone who doesn't want to participate doesn't have to. No worries if you would rather spend the night in studying than going out and celebrating. There is no gift giving, so you don't have to stress about what to get someone for Halloween or worry about budgeting.

The only stressful thing about Halloween is having a costume. As college students, it can be hard to dedicate time and money to buying or making a costume. It can also be hard to be creative and find inspiration.

I like to make people laugh, so some of my favorite costumes have been based on memes, inside jokes, and puns. I wanted to share some of my favorite puns that can serve as great inspiration for quick, cheap, and easy Halloween costumes. Some of them may be corny, but they will lift your spirits and make your friends laugh until they're coffin.

1. Cereal Killer

Christian Gabucci on Instagram: “Snap, Crackle, and Pop never stood a chance.. 🥣 🎃 featuring a zombie little Richard @rlupher24 #cerealkiller”

Show that you're sweet but also psycho by carrying around or dressing as your favorite sugary cereal. You can make this as dark as you want, by dressing as a murderer or simply having a plastic knife stabbed into a cereal box. It's also pretty killer that you'll have a box of cereal around for a snack!

2. Alt+R (Altar) Boy

Sorry girls, this one's for the boys. If you're a boy and a fan of computers or even used to be an altar boy yourself then this pun is for you. It's super simple to make yourself, you can just print out images of the "Alt" and "R" keys to tape to your shirt.

4. Fantasy Football

Don't have general fan gear? Then sport your favorite team's gear and show your knowledge of football by going as fantasy football. To make it a fantasy, you can add magical elements like wings and a wand. You can make even make it a couple costume like these two!

5. Fork in the Road

Whether or not you're at crossroads in your life, this metaphor will be a hit and will show you're on the right path with this costume. Simply wear a black shirt and put yellow lines dotted lines of tape down the center and a plastic fork on top. Or you can buy a t-shirt from Amazon for $16.99.

6. Chip on the Shoulder

Life got you down? Do you like chips? Then this simple costume is for you! Just wear normal clothes and attach a chip to your shoulder. While you could use this prop from Party City for $6.99, you could also just attach a single chip to your shoulder and carry around a bag of your favorite chips. Plus you'll have a snack for later!

7. Party Animals

Are you a party animal? Show your party spirit animal by donning your best attire and wearing animal-themed accessories. If you're super creative, you can do your own makeup to make yourself look like an animal.

8. Holy Guacamole 

Are you one of those millenials that would rather buy avocado toast than buy a house? Then show how much you revere avocados by going as the expression 'Holy Guacamole.' Find your green clothes and other avocado paraphernalia you naturally have as an avocado devotee. Tape images of avocados to yourself and make yourself look as holy and angelic as possible with a halo and wings.

9. Holy Cow

Along with Holy Guacamole, you could be a holy cow. Still a pretty simple costume with cowprint clothes and angelic accessories like a halo and wings.

10. Bread Winner

If you're competitive, this costume is super funny and shows your winning spirit. All you'll need is your workout clothes, a bag of bread, and those old medals you got for participating in sports in childhood.

11. Spice Girls

Sorry boys, this one's for the girls. Show off your girl power and spiciness by going as a group of different spices known as the 'Spice Girls.' With so many spices out there, your options are endless and you can include as many friends as you want. You can take inspiration from many different spice brands, but McCormick may be the most recognizable if you wear a red shirt and print out one of their spice labels.

12. Candy Rappers

Show off your hip-hop style and awesome rap skills by wearing your favorite sweat suit and attaching candy wrappers to your outfit.

13. Deviled Egg

A new take on the old Humpty Dumpty, show your devilish side and your love for eggs. You'll just need a white shirt or tape a white paper with a yellow circle on your stomach and devil horns.

14. Nickelback

And "This is How You Remind Me" of the meme that is Nickelback. Even if you're not a fan of the band, this meme will never die and you'll get plenty of people singing to you all night long. Just tape some nickels to the back of your shirt and you're ready! Don't forget to take a "Photograph"!

15. Pig in a Blanket

If you want an excuse to wear your pajamas, then consider going as a pig in a blanket by wearing your pajamas, a pig nose and ears, and wrap yourself in a blanket to stay cozy!

16. Lord(e) of the Rings

If you and your "Team" will never be "Royals," then consider dressing like Lord and wear your ring collection to make this nerdy pun. Lorde's style is perfect for all those ladies whose closet is filled with black clothes whether or not it's Halloween.

17. When Life Gives You Lemons

Are you a positive person? Then this costume is a great way to show your positivity by happily dressing as Life and handing out lemons. All you'll need is a shirt with Life written on it (or on a paper taped to your shirt) and some lemons.

18. Blessing in Disguise

They say that sometimes blessings come in disguises, so put on your best disguise (maybe a glasses with fake nose combo?) and remind people that you are a blessing by having a shirt with 'Blessing' written on it (or again you could tape a paper to your shirt).

So creep it real and have a gourd time on Halloween!

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student's semester are always crazy hectic.

We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of "Chrisley Knows Best."

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.


3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.


6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.


7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in two days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.


13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.


14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.


You're finally back to your old self.

Shows And Movies We Loved As Kids And What Those People Are Doing Now

I wanted to know what some of my favor actors and actresses are up to now.

I was scrolling through Netflix the other day and came across the movie "Spy Kids." Now I don't know about you guys but I LOVE this movie and was very excited when I saw it. Obviously, I watched it, and the second and the third cause what else would you do on a weekend? It got me thinking I wonder what some of our favorite movie/show characters are doing now and what their life is like.

Alexa Vega also is known as Carmen Cortez in "Spy Kids" is now 30 years old and doing great! Alexa is married to...wait for it: Carlos PenaVega. You might be thinking who even is that. If you watched "Big Time Rush" it's Carlos from BTR!! They got married in the year 2014 and they have a baby boy together named Ocean and they just posted on their Instagram they are expecting another baby boy.

Next, on our list, we have Jonathan Lipnicki also known for some great movies like "The Little Vampire" and "Stuart Little," He is now 28 years old and you can now find him on some television shows such as "Family Tools" and "Worst Cooks in America."

Danielle Fishel was known as Topanga Lawrence on "Boy Meets World" and later "Girl Meets World." You could catch her on Disney Channel in those shows. She is 37 years old and now she is married to Jensen Karp. Ben Savage, also known as our beloved Cory Matthews on "Boy Meets World" and "Girl Meets World," is now 38 years old. One of the quotes that have stuck with me is:

"A lot of the problems teenagers go through, it's better for them to go through them on their own. If you always have a crutch, you don't learn anything."

Daniel Radcliffe also is known as "Harry Potter" (favorite movie ) is now 29 years old. If you have never seen these movies I recommend them to anyone, and if you don't like them.. well, we are done talking. Anywho he is in the upcoming animation movie "Playmobil: The Movie."

Emma Watson also is known as the gorgeous and smart Hermione Granger now at 29 years old. Something you might not know is that her alma mater is Brown University. Emma is in a movie coming out December 25th, 2019 called "Little Women."

Robert Pattinson or how a lot of people know him as Edward Cullins from the "Twilight" series is now 32 years old and is in the upcoming movies "Waiting for the Barbarians" (2020) and "The Devil All The Time" (2020).

Taylor Lautner (I will always be Team Jacob and we can forever argue about it ) is known as Jacob Black in the "Twilight" series but you might also remember him from the movie "Abduction" in 2011 and the movie "Sharkboy and Lavagirl" in 2005, "Grown Ups 2" in 2013, another good one was "Cheaper By The Dozen 2" in 2005 and I could go on and on talking about him. Taylor is now 27 years old and in a few shows such as "Scream Queens" and "My Wife and Kids."

Anna Kendrick also from the "Twilight" series but also from "Pitch Perfect" known as Beca is now 33 years old and working on an upcoming movie "Noelle" coming November 2019

Rebel Wilson in the movie "Pitch Perfect" known as Fat Amy. A fun little tidbit, when the movie came out I changed my twitter name to "Fat Hannah"... and now that I think about it I was a stupid kid and why would I do that to myself. Anyway, Rebel is known for her funny personality and she is in an upcoming movie "The Hustle" May 10th, 2019 with fellow actress Anne Hathaway.

These are just a few of some of the actors and actresses from some of my favorite movies I have watched over the years and wondered what they were doing now with their lives.
