5 Halloween Movies for the Weak Hearted

It’s Halloween and you know what that means? Halloween movie marathons! Well, if you’re anything like me, it’s dreadful to know that you might run into "Paranormal Activity" or possessed five-year-olds on television. Or you might just not like horror movies period. If you fit into either one of these categories, say no more, I got you. Down below are the 5 Halloween movies I recommend watching if you want nothing to do with horror.

1. "BeetleJuice"

If you like ghosts but don’t want to deal with the exorcism, then you should watch "Beetlejuice!" It’s about a couple who recently died and became ghosts. They began haunting their former home but they suck at it, so they call up this crazy guy named Beetlejuice. Eventually they figure out this guy is crazy but it is too late. It’s a hilarious story. And since it is directed by Tim Burton, it contains extreme elements of fantasy. A must watch. And please, whatever you do, don't say "Beetlejuice" three times!

2. "Paranorman"

Zombie movies may have you shaking in your boots, but I promise you this one will not. It’s another comedic movie and it’s quite heartwarming. It follows the story of Norman Babcock, who is a bit of an outcast because he can speak to the dead! Norman finds out in the movie that his town is haunted and he is the only one that can save it. Even with the comedic element, it still manages to tell an amazing story. It’s also a stop motion movie so if you like these, then you should definitely watch it!

3. "Halloweentown" (1-3)

My list wouldn’t be a list if I didn’t include the classic "Halloweentown" franchise. If you like ghosts, ghouls, witches, and skeletons than it’s time to take a trip! These movies follow Marnie Piper and her story of being a witch. It begins with Marnie learning that she is one to her starting her own high school program for the citizens of "Halloweentown." And I promise you, you will want to go to this imaginary place before you’re even done with the movies.

4. "Hocus Pocus"

Honestly, the first time that I’ve watched this movie was last year. I knew that it was hyped by others but when I finally saw it, I realized why it had such a reputation. This is another movie about witches, but these witches aren’t as nice as the ones in "Halloweentown." These are Salem witches and they are quite evil. They become resurrected by a teenage boy who must put an end to all of the terror they caused before sunrise. The witches' costumes are everything. And there's a musical number in the movie that's classic.

5. "Scooby-Doo"

I feel like this movie is highly underrated as a Halloween movie but I thoroughly enjoyed it. To be honest, I don’t care for a lot of cartoon turned live action movies but this one is the GOAT. It follows the Mystery Gang after they broke up, but the world needs them to take on yet another mystery and they must do this one together. It’s a funny movie and it also has a lot of underlying jokes for adults as well.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
