Fulfill all of your punk, grunge, and scene dreams with these themed ideas!

If you're like me (a Scorpio), then you know how firey Scorpio season can be, especially when the 13th falls on a Friday. This (un)lucky day calls for an excuse to have a themed night that your angsty teenage self would live for.

For this spooky theme, think grunge, punk, rock, emo, witchy, scene and goth.

And of course, stay safe, get tested, and stick to a small social circle.

Step 1: Create your rockin' playlist

You can find some great articles for spooky drink ideas online! Here is one of my favorites.

Some of my favorite ideas so far are the black magic shimmering cherry martini, pomegranate rum punch, the black widow smash, witch's potion cocktail, and the smoking raspberry sage margarita.

Freeze gloves full of water and throw them in your punch bowl, toss in some candy eyeballs, or add some dry ice into whatever you choose to add some awesome special effects!

Once again, there are great spooky snack ideas online. I found some really good ones here.

Some of my favs were blood drip cupcakes, I see you Halloween snack mix, green matcha popcorn, icky intestines bread, veggie skeleton, deathly hallows cheese board, and bloody falafel fingers.

I hope you found these ideas fun and inspiring! Tailor them to your own creativity and desires!

Thanks for reading, and have a spooky Friday the 13th.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
