5 Reasons Why You Should Scare In a Haunted House

Haunt or Be Haunted
The Today Show

Hobby Lobby has put out their fall decorations which means I can start talking about my favorite season - FALL!

Traditionally in Fall, humans like to pick pumpkins, wear boots, drink Starbucks and travel to big scary houses only to get the sh*t scared out of them with their friends. I personally love to do all of those things every other time of the year, but I guess it is only "normal" to do it in Fall. There are a few haunted houses throughout Minnesota, but there are only a few that are my favorites. My family owns Paul Bunyan Land up in Brainerd, MN and they have a haunted house every year. I have haunted and been haunted at that house and let me tell you, it is so much more fun to scare!

I want to give you 5 reasons on why you should try scaring in a haunted house at least once.

1. You Get To Dress Up

Who doesn't love Halloween, let's be real. Who wouldn't love getting all decked out in a scary costume, with a big bloody mess all over your face? Okay probably not everyone, but for those of you that would like it, it's so worth the screams.

2. You Get To Experience The House From The Inside

Haunted Houses are always a huge attraction, but when you see it from the opposite side, your entire experience is so much more fun. Not going to lie, haunted houses are still just as scary when you're walking to your spot. The other members on the scare team typically don't treat you any differently than the customers even if the house isn't quite open yet. It's good to know the inside and outside though, because then you can find the best scare spots.

3. The Money

So, did I mention that most the time you scare at haunted houses, you get paid? Who doesn't want a few extra bucks for scaring people?

4. The Stories and Memories

I can't tell you how many times my family and I have sat around talking about the haunted house and all the people we have scared. The amount of funny stories you create are endless. There is never a dull moment or boring time when you're a part of a scare team. Also, you can bring this up at any time. Like birthday parties, work meetings, even funerals! Just kidding, don't do that.

5. The Scares - Duh!

I'm sure at one point in your life you have scared someone so badly that one of you peed your pants. That's exactly what you get to do on a scare team, but more than once a night. If you think you can't scare someone that's double your height and almost double your weight, check again. Everyone is a victim here. Sometimes, women are forced to go through first because the men aren't so "manly" anymore.

I hope I've given you some inspiration to want to go scare the sh*t out of people, for fun, more than once.

Happy Haunting!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
