5 Reasons Why Halloween Is The Best Holiday

Halloween is the best time of the year.. here's why.

5 Reasons Why Halloween Is The Best Holiday

1. The weather is perfect.

It's no longer a struggle to go outside without breaking out in a sweat. It's chilly and inviting. The leaves are falling off of the trees, crunching under your feet. Long story short, sweater weather is always the best weather.

2. It's not just a one day thing.

The first day of October is the start of the Halloween craze. Decorations slowly but surely make their way into peoples' yards and everyone begins talking about what they are going to dress up as for Halloween. Halloween? More like Octoberween.

3. Everything is spooky.

House decorations, haunted houses, costumes. EVERYTHING is spooky... and it's amazing. It even gets dark a little earlier, which adds to the spookiness. Who doesn't like a good spook?

4. Halloween parties are for anyone.

There are a lot of get-togethers around Halloween. Some people aren't into social gatherings, but a Halloween party is a lot different than a regular one. You get to wear a costume and be somebody else for a bit. People get to try and guess who you are and it's interesting to hear their guesses. Branch out of your shell and go to at least one Halloween party. You won't regret it.

5. You can be anything/anyone you want to be.

The possibilities are endless. Some people like to do special effect makeup, some just like putting on a pair of cat ears. Halloween is the perfect time to use your creativity and become something you're not for once. There aren't any boundaries either, so if you want to be extremely bloody, sexy, or BOTH... go right ahead.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
