It's October, my friends. Do you know what that means? It's time to get caught up on the spooky film classics that have always been on your must-watch list. Round up your ghoul gang, stock up on Halloween candy, and track down these five festive flicks.

1. The Craft

Even though the Sanderson Sisters might hold the title of "Baddest Witches in Town," I think Nancy's clique in "The Craft" takes a close second. When leading lady Sarah starts at a new high school, she falls into a crowd of teenage witches and things go haywire. Pop some popcorn, bring out the Ouija Board, and summon your ladies to watch the film that defined my short-lived goth phase.

2. Ginger Snaps

Are you tired of dudes getting all of the teenage werewolf glory? Same here. "Ginger Snaps" flips the script when sixteen-year-old Ginger gets bitten by a werewolf and starts having some serious issues. As someone who deplores the look of CGI, this movie is full of ultra-freaky practical effects that are both scary and impressive. Move over "Teen Wolf," Ginger is the raddest of them all.

3. Evil Dead

The "Evil Dead" remake is about fighting demons both figuratively and literally. As a huge fan of the original Evil Dead franchise, there is something super exciting about watching chainsaw-wielding Mia fill Ash's shoes in the fight against darkness. Just a warning: This film is not for anyone squeamish at gore. There are plenty of cringeworthy moments that will make you glad that you're in your house/apartment/dorm room and not in an isolated cabin in the woods (no matter how cool it sounds). If you can make it to the end, I promise you and your friends will be cheering on Mia from the sidelines.

4. Scream

"Scream" is not only one of my favorite October movie picks, but it's one of the horror films that I hold dearest. I'll spare you any spoilers by not outing the best parts; however, "Scream" is a razor-sharp commentary on "scary movies" in general. If you're looking for a strong female character to get you inspired this fall, Sidney has "badass" status in my book. The Ghost Face killer never stood a chance.

5. Hocus Pocus

To end your Halloween season, I advise inviting your entire crew over to indulge in a viewing of "Hocus Pocus." The Sanderson Sisters are the fiercest ghoul gang of them all, wreaking havoc in Salem, Mass. after being brought back on Halloween. If you've never seen "Hocus Pocus," stop reading this article now. No, really. I need you to prioritize seeing this film over anything I have to say.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
