Halloween Movies to Get You Feeling ~Eerie~

1. Hocus Pocus

Need we say more? This movie is iconic in it's clever one liners, but isn't super scary (which means you'll be able to sleep after you watch it). We hear that there's a full moon on October 31st this year… all we need is for a virgin to light the candle to bring back the Sanderson Sisters. After all, it's all just a bunch of hocus-pocus!

2. Us

I watched this movie for a class last year and I was terrified. FULL DISCLAIMER: I am incapable of handling scary movies. Meaning: I watched a horror movie my senior year of high school, and I'm pretty sure that I was so freaked, I didn't go near a horror movie until "Us"- four years later. Regardless, it has a lot of interesting theories behind it, so if you're interested in some backstory, Jordan Peele himself has a lot to say in an interview with NPR here.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I watched this movie for the first time recently, and I missed out on a lot. I finally understand why it is such a classic. Apparently, everyone had a thing for Jack Skeleton way back when? To each their own. But regardless, "This is Halloween" was totally played at every Halloween party from middle school, ever. My sincere apologies if it's stuck in your head now!

4. Scream

What's your favorite scary movie? Kidding. This movie is a known classic, and just by looking at the above photo, I have distinct memories of my cousin dressing in this mask for Halloween. Produced in 1996, this one is absolutely a must-see if you're looking for some cheesy jump scares. Just don't forget the rules of surviving a horror movie: don't say you'll be right back.

5. A Quiet Place

This one had my heart stopping at the most bizarre moments. These are the sort of movies that keep you half scared, half on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. Plus, seeing Emily Blunt and John Krasinski together is pure magic. Krasinski is hardly the childish Jim that we see in "The Office".

6. Hotel Transylvania

I love Disney. So much so that of course I had to throw in this cute movie, even if it isn't so much Halloween-themed. What happens when a human stumbles upon the hotel which Dracula has built for monsters who need to hide? Chaos.

7. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

I grew up watching all of the Charlie Brown movies: A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and of course, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Scary? Not even a little. Adorable, endearing and perfect for a cold night with mulled cider? Absolutely.

Enjoy binge-watching!

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.
