It's Just A Bunch Of Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus, debuting in 1993, is one of my all time favorite Halloween movies. I will admit that, it does scare me, every time I watch it. There are many elements that make this classic, the ultimate Halloween movie. I want to share with you the elements, that keep me hooked on this witchy cauldron bubbling classic.

This movie has everything from witches wanting to feed off of children to protective older brothers to the funniest dead guy around the graveyard.

1. The Sanderson Sister Witches.

Winfred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson are the comedy and horror of this movie. They are the main storyline and the most famous witches in Salem, Massachusetts.

2. Thackery Binx is portrayed by Sean Murray.

Before he was NCIS Special Agent, McGee, he played the oh so dashingly handsome, older brother of Emily Binx.

3. Witty comebacks.

I mean, come on, who doesn't love all the witty and funny comebacks?

4. Billy becoming Max, Alison, and Dani's protector.

He's all right for a 300 or so year old dead man. He did lent that dug up grave to Dani, to help save her from the witches. He is a good guy in my book!

5. When Max decides to not believe the power of the black flame candle.

Bad things happen when you don't follow instructions, Max! Oh silly boy, thinks he can outsmart everyone in the town and their "myths". He was wrong and it was one of the highlights of the movie.

6. Protective Brothers: Thackery and Max.

How many brothers do you know that would try to fight 3 wicked witches for their little sisters? Coolest brothers ever!

7. The goodbye scene to Thackery and Emily.

When Thackery reunites with his sister and they have the funniest two lines. This is my favorite dialogue ever!

8. The connection between Max and Alison.

Aren't they cute? One thing, when moving to a different place, that worked in Max's favor was meeting Alison. The couple that fights witches and saves the children of Salem, stays together.

9. Binx's promise to Dani.

Binx as a cat and as human, are equally winning over my heart.

I hope you all immediately go and watch this spectacular Halloween classic, after reading some great parts from it.

October is a time to binge watch Hocus Pocus all month long!

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.

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.
