i put a spell on you hocus pocus
Start writing a post

So I know that I'm late to the party here, but I finally got around to watching Hocus Pocus. And let me tell you, that movie definitely lived up to expectations.

And here are five reasons why Hocus Pocus should most certainly be at the top of your watch list for Halloween movies.

1. Bette Midler

I've loved Bette Midler since "The Rose" played in Napoleon Dynamite. And, while she wasn't in that movie, I still considered that to be one of her best roles. Well...that is, up until today. She was phenomenal in this role and I challenge anyone to tell me differently.

2. Sarah Jessica Parker

Let's be honest. Everyone loves the ditzy, borderline slut that is on every show. On Golden Girls, it's Blanche, though my girls is far from ditzy. On Hocus Pocus, it's Sarah Jessica Parker.

3. Thackery Binx

I'm not the biggest fan of cats, in fact, I can't stand them, but Binx was definitely one that I'm glad had nine lives. I feel like he should be everyone's conscience when they're deciding between right and wrong. He was always there for those kids, he was always (or at least tried) to be there for his sister, and he will always be there for you.

How cheesy does that sound?

4. Brooms, Mops, and Vacuums

Brooms essentially made all of the sisters even that more interesting. And then what did they do when they didn't have their brooms anymore? They used mops and vacuums! Innovative even when they don't even know what a bus is? I'd say that's a step in the right direction.

5. I Put a Spell On You

I'm gonna be honest. I had never heard of this song before I had gone to the Halloween party at Disney. And I had never really heard it in detail after I had seen the movie. Bette Midler is amazing in any form, especially when it comes to singing.

But the teeth, the accent, the hair. I mean 10 out of 10 honestly.

So go ahead! Go and watch Hocus Pocus!

Freeform is soon starting their now "31 Days of Halloween" and I don't feel like you can go the entire 31 days without watching Hocus Pocus multiple times.

I mean, even a newbie like myself knows that. So come on...

We fly!

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.


Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.
