8 Ways To Get Spooky With Your Boo This October
Rachel Cotter

Looking for ways to get in the Halloween spirit? I've got you covered. Here are some of the classics.

Haunted house

Look up places near you (or make it a road trip) to go to a haunted house. It's a lot of fun!


Put away your pride for one night, dress up, and get some free candy. Bonus if you have a themed costume together!

Handing out candy

On the other side, handing out candy can be a lot of fun. Put on your spooky Halloween socks, grab some hot apple cider, and get ready to greet all the kiddos together.

Scary movies

Scary movies are a must during the month of October (and all year). If you can't find anything good on Netflix or Hulu, go old-school and rent a DVD! Redbox is your next best bet #RIPBlockbuster.

Spooky decorations

There is no better way to get in the Halloween spirit than to decorate your living area. This doesn't have to break your budget, either! Check out the dollar store, the Target dollar section and Hobby Lobby. Get to decorating!

Haunted hayride

Just like a haunted house, this can be so much fun! If you live in the south, chances are, there is someone in a 15 mile radius doing a makeshift haunted hayride. Do it for the mems!

Carving pumpkins

Artistic or not, this is a staple date for Halloween time. Have fun with it and take cute pictures. The memories will way outlast the pumpkin.

Baking spooky good treats

Pumpkin pie and apple pie are super yummy, but if you're not the best in the kitchen, maybe go for something a little easier. Pillsbury has the BEST Halloween-themed cookies, ready to be eaten once popped into the oven (or not).

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.
