10 Perfect Podcasts to Get You Ready for Spooky Season

Spooky season is finally upon us! What is better than cuddling up and watching the scariest movies of all time? Absolutely nothing. But what do you do when you aren't off to get yourself in the Halloween mood? How do you get your scary-time fix to and from work or at the grocery store? If you don't have a solution, have no fear, I hold the key to a quick-fix right here!

While podcasts have been around for a few years, they've really jumped onto the radar in the last couple of years. And for all of you who live under a rock and don't know what a Podcast is, the best way to describe it is "television for your ears," according to fellow podcast network Public Radio Alliance.

Now, I've been diving deep into the podcast world for about 3 years, listening to all different types of genres. Out of the limitless possibilities out there, scary stories/horror is my absolute FAVORITE type of podcast. Here is a list of what I believe to be the top 10 best podcasts to give you the horror vibes needed for Halloween.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

4417
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11898

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
