5 Ways to Win at Halloween

How To Halloween

Despite it falling on the last day of the month, Halloween is typically the first thing that comes to mind when people greet October. Kids become excited for the one night of the year where they're allowed to indulge in as much candy as they can stomach, and the parents can only groan and chuckle at their kids' impending sugar high that they are going to have to deal with by the end of the night. The neighborhood slowly begins to evolve from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31st, as people begin setting out different decorations in their yards in order to express their growing excitement for the creepiest day of the year. Here are a few tips and tricks to get ready for the annual day filled with "BOOs!":

1. Carving the Jack-O-Lanterns:

You could be adventurous with your design, but those who aren't as artistically inclined as this pumpkin carver may want to stick with a simple toothy leer.

2. Get a black cat

Personally, I'd use any excuse to get a cat, but what better way to be in the Halloween spirit than to get an all black kitty?

3. Decorate your yard

It's always a good time walking up and down the aisles of a Halloween store picking out creepy items to lay out in your lawn. However, everyone has one of THOSE neighbors that gets a little heavy handed with the fake graves and skeletons so try and find a good balance!

4. Picking out your costume

Committing to a Halloween costume doesn't have to be a big struggle! If you really can't decide, as per "Mean Girls" philosophy, just add some animal ears to a little black dress and you're good to go! (Guys, this advice doesn't apply to you....)

5. Eat Candy

With all the candy you're expected to eat in one night, your stomach definitely needs time to prepare! Eat a few pieces a day starting Oct. 1, and gradually increase the amount as the holiday gets closer. This way you're guaranteed to be able to stuff your face with no worry of the candy stomach ache that dooms so many!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
