Fun Things To Do For Halloween

Halloween is coming up, people. It's next Monday, which means this weekend is: yes, you guessed it; Halloweekend. And while Halloween is actually only on one day, it is celebrated the entire weekend (and sometimes even the entire weekend before too). You don't just have to go Trick or Treating in order to celebrate Halloween; there are plenty of options:

Watch Halloween-themed movies

Halloween (as well as the weekend before) is a great time to watch Halloween movies. I, personally, get too scared with really scary movies (no joke-I'm 21 years old but I'll have nightmares for weeks), but I do love to watch the classic not-too-scary Halloween-themed movies (like Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown).

Pass out (and eat) candy

Just because you're too old to go out and ask strangers for candy doesn't mean it isn't fun to pass out candy in the comfort of your own home. You can sit on the couch all night (watching the halloween-themed movies), and have a perfect excuse to eat all the extra candy when you only have four trick-or-treaters. And the best part is, you get to see all of the cute kids in their costumes.

Dress up with your significant other or your friends

There is nothing more fun on Halloween (except for the staying home and eating candy thing) than to coordinate a costume with your friend or your significant other (even if you decide last minute what you're going to be). Just imagine how cute your instagram posts from the night will be.

Throw a Halloween Party

Yea, sure, you can show off your costume at a bar, but what's even more fun is throwing your own party that you can invite all your friends to. You don't have to deal with cover charges, strangers, or going out in the cold while you go from bar to bar. Plus, you get to decorate and buy halloween-themed treats and drinks!

Carve pumpkins

What is a better time to carve pumpkins than the weekend before Halloween? The answer is: there's no better time. Carve a bunch of different designs that you can put on your front porch to look festive for Halloween night!

Go trick-or-treating (with kids)

Yes you're too old to go trick-or-treating (I promise, you can't get away with it). But if you have nieces and nephews, or even little cousins, you can get away with going along for the walk, seeing them in their costumes, and maybe tricking them into giving you some of their candy afterwards.

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.
