"BuzzFeed Unsolved" Is A Great Show To Watch This Halloween Season

Be prepared for some jump scares and lots of laughs.

If you are like me and have a bit of an obsession with ghost hunting shows, then do I have a show for you. It's not a show on TV but on YouTube. It is called "Buzzfeed Unsolved". I know some people have things against Buzzfeed but all opinions aside, this show is great.

I first got into ghost-hunting shows when I was in high school. I would spend my Saturday mornings catching up on recordings of "Ghost Hunters" on the Syfy channel (because I was a wimp and couldn't watch it at night because I was too scared). I watched that show up until its final season in 2016. I was so upset that the final season was finished that I did not know what to do with myself. Four months later, I came across "Buzzfeed Unsolved" .

Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej team up in exploring the unsolved mysteries of the supernatural that often lead to paranormal activity. They have investigated cases regarding exorcisms, the Illuminati, voodoo, and lots of murders. Each video will either have chills sent up and down your spine or have you laughing at their commentary. It will have you spending your Friday nights binge-watching all ten 20 minute episodes in a single night.

Ryan and Shane are complete opposites in what they believe in. But together, they make one heck of a team. Ryan is a firm believer in ghosts, aliens, and all things supernatural. Don't be surprised if he pulls out a wild conspiracy theory in any of the cases they do. Shane, on the other hand, is a skeptic. You see in all of their supernatural investigations his doubt in the paranormal. He will never miss a chance to mess with Ryan (with quite a few jump scares) or taunt the ghosts that supposedly haunt the locations they visit.

They bicker and tease one another and I think that's what makes it a fun show to watch. They are amateur ghost hunters who like to have fun with it. They are not afraid (well they are slightly afraid) of locking themselves in a closet or bathroom to see if they can talk to any ghosts that lurk there.

Not only does this duo investigate the paranormal, but they also investigate true crimes in their other show "Buzzfeed Unsolved: True Crime". They investigate crimes such as the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, the trial of O.J. Simpson, and the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. During this past season, they started up another show called "Postmortem" where they answer any questions that the audience may have from the previous episode. They have answered some really interesting questions, heard some interesting theories, as well as joke about how Ryan said a word weird in the episode or Shane's doubt in ghosts. Either way, it's a great way to interact with the audience and get to hear more of Ryan and Shane's humor.

I look forward to every Friday for the release of a new "Buzzfeed Unsolved" episode. Their curiosity and humor make it so much fun to watch (as well as giving me the creeps). After I watch it, I immediately talk to my roommate about the episode. We talk about the best parts of the show. It may be creepy parts or a comment Shane or Ryan said. Either way, we have a shared love for this show. If you want to be spooked this Halloween season, I highly recommend watching an episode . Once you start, you won't want to stop.

19 Struggles Only Girls With The 'Looks Thin In Clothes But Not In A Bikini' Body Type Will Understand

A resounding 'thank you' to whoever decided one-pieces were cool again.

We grew up thinking the world was black and white. There's tall people and short people. There's old people and young people.

There's fat people and skinny people.

But as you get older, you realize there is a lot more in between those two ends of the spectrum than you ever thought possible. Especially when it comes to weight. And you do a lot more realizing if you're in an awkward position on that scale... Literally.

1. People always tell you to stop saying you are fat

Obviously, your friends SHOULD prevent you from talking negatively about yourself. And if you only saw you when you were fully dressed, you'd probably tell yourself to stop saying you're fat, too.

2. And are kind of surprised by your actual weight

You've definitely had friends who are shocked by the number on your scale because you can carry it pretty well when you are fully dressed.

3. Sometimes you feel like a catfish

Have you ever changed out of your super cute, flattering outfit and looked at yourself in the mirror and thought... Wow, am I lying to people?

4. But you know this is probably true for most people

When you're wearing clothes, typically the parts of a body that bring about insecurities (stomach, namely) are covered. No matter the body type, you realize most people are more comfortable in clothes than out of them.

5. Your confidence is often contingent on the month

November? Yep, won't need to be in shorts or a bikini for about 7-8 months. I am good to go.

February? I'll need to be in a bikini soon.. I could use some work.

6. You are thrilled by the one-piece bathing suit making a fashion come back

A resounding 'thank you' to whoever decided it was time to give one-pieces a try again. The stomachs of us in-between gals are appreciative.

7. Crop tops are 95% of the time not your top of choice

Yeah, okay, clothes are supposed to work for me and not against me.

8. You honestly don't understand jean sizes

I have fluctuated in weight a lot of my life, most recently losing 25lbs, and I still did not budge in jean sizes.

9. You wonder what other people think when they see you

Do other people see me as thin in clothing? Or fat in a bikini? What size am I perceived as?

10. Shopping is kind of a nightmare

Have you ever found about 27 items you liked, added the prices and thought, ah, it is going to be so tough to choose from all of these items? Only to go into the fitting room and realize only 2 of the items fit you well? Yep, me every single time I go to the store.

11. You're thankful that at least you've got boobs

You can kind of hide them in clothes, and then let them steal the show away from your tummy in a swimsuit.

12. You have a hard time setting weight-loss goals

You aren't really sure how overweight you are (if you are, at all) and you don't want to be at an unhealthy weight on either side of the spectrum.

13. Body positivity comes and goes

There are days, weeks or even months when you feel like the most beautiful person on the planet, and then something happens (old jeans don't fit, you try on a new bathing suit, etc.) and you convince yourself that all of that confidence was wrong and undeserved.

14. You always try on the biggest size first

Either this or you're in a weird limbo between the smallest plus sizes size and the biggest generic sizes size.

15. Half of you knows every body is a bikini body, and half of you is convinced that yours is not

You know that your body is worthy of wearing whatever you want to wear, but looking at yourself and seeing what society (and you) sometimes deem as unattractive can eat away at that knowledge.

16. But you also know self-love and confidence are key to beauty

Even if you have to fake it, you know that feeling confident is going to carry you pretty far.

17. Being in a bathing suit is a constant game of readjustment

Okay, I am sitting. Pull the bottoms up to cover as much as my stomach as possible and the back of the top down to cover any back rolls.

18. You've avoided the mirror after a shower before

You know that you are just going to lose all the comfort you felt in your body during the day when you see yourself, so sometimes it is best to just avoid it.

19. Ultimately, you know your beauty is not contingent on what you are wearing

The goal for everyone should be to get to a point where it doesn't matter if you're in a snowsuit, a bathing suit or a birthday suit... You can see your beauty no matter what and feel confident despite what you have on. It'll take time, but falling in love with the way you look is worth it.

To The Stressed Out College Student, Be Optimistic For Spring Quarter

I am looking forward to a productive spring quarter.


As a strenuous ten weeks of winter quarter is finally coming to a close, there is no better feeling than to be rewarded with a week of spring break. For most colleges and universities, this period of time is one of excitement and relief, as students approach a summer vacation that begins in May. Yet, for students with schedules revolving around the lovable (and often hatable) quarter system, it feels as though summer is far from our reach.

On a personal note, my previous ten weeks of classes have been bearable at best. I can proudly say that I have been counting down the days until spring break since our winter quarter began in January, though now that the week is finally approaching, I am reminded by the fact that I have yet another ten weeks of school in the near future. Interestingly enough, I have not started the countdown to June 18th quite yet. Instead, I am looking forward to a productive spring quarter that will leave me feeling energized and accomplished as I enter into a fresh summer.

I believe that the spring quarter withholds a sense of refreshment and newfound energy in comparison to that of fall and winter. Though students on the quarter system will end classes later than others, there is something to be said for spending days on campus when the warm weather finally breaks. Time seems to pass faster than it did in the dark and ominous weeks of winter quarter, and everyone seems to have a more positive attitude - as we can all see that vacation is approaching.

To the stressed out college student, be optimistic for spring quarter. Though tests and finals will still be ever-present, the completion of another ten weeks of classes is excellent motivation to achieve success and reward yourself within the coming months.
