American Horror Story Coven Is The Best Season, Hands Down

American Horror Story Coven Is The Best Season, Hands Down

And if you think otherwise, fight me.

I really have no idea how many times I've rewatched the third season of American Horror Story. I can just tell you that Coven is my favorite of them all. I'm gonna be honest, I started watching the season last week because I was high. In my head, AHS Coven sounded so freaking amazing.

I was mindblown while watching the first couple of scenes and stuffing myself with powdered doughnuts and a large Thai tea with boba. I was having the time of my life while Zoe's boyfriend bled to death during their first time having sex.

However, I didn't stop and I kept on watching it. I didn't do homework because I was watching that show for what felt like the millionth time. I feel like after everytime, the show keeps getting better and better.

I just can't stop watching it for some reason. All the magic in the show makes it more appealing to my taste. I mean, the other day I was eating Taco Bell at midnight while watching this show, and let me tell you— IT WAS AMAZING!

I mean, no offense to the other six seasons, but Coven takes the prize in my opinion. Don't believe me? Well, I made a list to change your opinion if you don't think season 3 is the best.

1. Fiona Goode

Okay, but before you get on my ass: I know that Fiona is a conniving, self-centered bitch. She was the one who killed most of the witches from the coven (my poor Nan), and if she ever committed a good deed, it was for her own personal purpose. But come on! When do we ever get an antagonist as good as her!?

Jessica Lange excelled in portraying this character. Fiona Goode is the Supreme, the most powerful of all witches. The Queen of the Witches. When the season begins, we find out our beloved bitch queen is dying, and throughout the season she tries to stop her unstoppable death. The only way is by killing the next Supreme since she is sucking the life out of Fiona. Not only do we see how conniving she is, but also how powerful.

I mean, who wouldn't swoon at a Jessica Lange killing a man with an ax? Ah, she needs to return to the show so bad.

2. Myrtle Snow

Myrtle Snow is another terrific example of a phenomenal woman in this show. Pretty much, this season was run by women. Isn't that amazing?!?

However, Myrtle was a sucker for dramatic one-liners and well-delivered screams directed at Fiona. And by now, we should know how much of a sucker I am for dramatics. When she scooped out the eyes out of the members of the council... I was struck with awe at how smoothly she played that scene. It must be my favorite.

Also, let's not forget how much of a fashion icon this woman was!

3. The Seven Wonders

In order to become the next Supreme, a witch must be able to complete all of the seven wonders. Not one less. Each one gets more difficult as the tests go on; the vitalum vitalis being the hardest of all the tests.

If you don't know what that is, that's a spell used to bring people back to life. Misty Day, a swamp witch, was the only one able to — including Fiona — bring people back to life without a hassle. But she couldn't make it past one of the tests and died.

I sometimes wish I had been this creative and had come with this concept myself, but if I had, then there would not have been an AHS Coven, to begin with. Ah, the dilemma.

4. Franken-Boyfriend

Imma lay this bare on the table: we ALL love Evan Peters. There, I said it. I finally got it off of my chest.

However, I believe his role in Coven is the most original of them all. Sure, all of his other characters are pretty three-dimensional and unordinary — but dying, ending in pieces, only to be built by two girls that chose parts of his friends and brought him back to life? Like, how do you even know how to act after that? Sure, Kyle was pretty much in a catatonic state until Fiona fixed the torques in his brain.

But playing a brutally confectioned boyfriend? Take all of my money.

5. Magic

So this show gave us some unique powers. Let's take Zoe's power, for example. She has a killer vagina— literally. If you have sex with her, you will be the one bleeding, not her. At least she knew how to put her power to good use in a scene in the show.

We've also got Winnie's power, who is a human voodoo doll. Ain't that cool? We've got clairvoyants, necromancers, telekinetic people, voodoo-users, you name it. And they also incorporated other horror elements into the storyline like ghosts, zombies, a demon, and even a minotaur. Can this show get any better?

Maybe this season was the only one that had a happy and satisfying ending, where, you know, not everybody ends up dead in the end.

But this was my short list of reasons for why I am correct and you are wrong. And if you still don't believe Coven to be the best season, fight me.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.


Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.

I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.

I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.

As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
