7 Things To Watch If You're A True Mystery Solving, Crime Addict

For some reason or another, humans are obsessed with true crime and the macabre. Psychopaths intrigue us, and so we find ourselves researching serial killers, cults, and Googling crime scene photos. For some of us, no matter how many nights we freak ourselves out and can't sleep at night, we keep coming back for more.

True Crime is different than the Supernatural. Supernatural phenomena are happenings that people either believe, or they don't. If you don't believe in ghosts, then the story of the Winchester House may not scare you. But True Crime, that is very real. These were real people that murdered and did horrific things to other human beings. We cannot deny that these events happened.

The fact that humans were capable of doing these horrific things is scary enough, but then again, humans are interested in the minds of other humans.

1. BuzzFeed Unsolved: True Crime

Buzzfeed Unsolved


If you're looking for a quick debriefing of the word's unsolved crimes, look no further than YouTube. Shane and Ryan present the crime, and give theories as to who might have done it or what happened.

2. Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes



This docuseries was so very interesting, and very creepy. Something about Bundy's eyes, they're so dead and souless, that keeps you up at night. Do not watch alone.

3. I Am The Night



If you're fascinated with the Black Dahlia Murder, this limited series will definitely hold your interest. Plus, Chris Pine is in it.

4. Evil Genius



Another show on Netflix that had recorded audio and visuals with the evil mastermind herself. A series that goes very in-depth of the collar-bomb burglary.

5. Mindhunter



While this is not a documentary, it is a TV series following the man who started the FBI program for criminal profiling.

6. Encounters With Evil



This is another show that runs through crimes according to common traits between them. They analyze cults, cannibals, serial killers, and abductions. Definitely the one-stop-shop for the True Crime lover.

7. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile

COTA Films


Just from the first trailer of this movie starring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, the movie has already gotten some controversy. Not many people are too happy with the fact that Bundy seems to be portrayed as a charismatic, handsome charmer, but the thing is, is that that's exactly how he portrayed himself, even to his very last day. Bundy was an absolute psycho and master manipulator, and got many people to believe he was innocent. While I don't condone the romanticization of a sociopath like himself, I can see the angle the movie is trying to take.

These are just a few movies or shows available on True Crime. With a simple Google search, you, as a viewer, have your choice on dozens of films and documentaries and interviews of real-life accounts and testimonies from victims about the horrific crimes described in these. You can learn so much from how society behaves from watching these.

Remember, if you are scared easily, be sure to watch with a friend.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
