Return To The Murder House

Five things that still bother me about season one of "American Horror Story."

Return To The Murder House

As season five of "American Horror Story" quickly approaches, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and re-watch my favorite "AHS" season, "Murder House," on Netflix…three times all the way through (oops.) During this sickening binge session, I was reminded of some things that still really bother me about season one of the hit show.

*WARNING: If you haven't watched "Murder House" (and I strongly suggest you do) this article contains a mountain of spoilers.*

1. Why on God’s green Earth were Violet’s parents not even the slightest bit concerned about where her body was?

I know there was a lot going on during the scene where Violet tells her dad that she’s been dead for the past few weeks, you know, with the anti-Christ being born and all. But you would think that during those few days after Vivien had died in childbirth, Ben would’ve been concerned with burying his daughter along with her mother. Instead, he lets her body continue to rot in the house’s crawlspace…cool.

2. Did no one care about the death of the exterminator?

The poor guy just goes to sort out a problem with flies and gets murdered and left in the crawlspace with Violet’s corpse. Does he not have a wife? Friends? Anyone who's concerned about where he went? I mean, the cops showed up to investigate when Ben's patient and Hayden went missing. I’m sure there was a record tracing the exterminator’s last job to the Murder House.

3. Constance’s fourth child?

She very clearly states that she had four children. I know that Ryan Murphy had planned a story line for Constance’s fourth child, who was supposed to be an albino, but then cut his character out of the show. I still wish they hadn’t left that open ended though.

4. Tate and Violet’s whole relationship.

I love Tate and Violet. They are my favorite couple in all four existing seasons of "American Horror Story," hands down. But there is something about ghost/human relationships that bother me. Tate, as a spirit, can make himself known or unknown as much as he wants. This means Tate could literally always be stalking Violet, and since he’s a tad bit of a psychopath, let’s be honest, he probably was. Personally, if I knew that my boyfriend could make himself invisible and follow me anywhere in my house, I'd never use the restroom again. That’s all.

5. How did the ghosts change clothes?

How were ghosts such as Hayden, Violet and Tate able to switch clothes every day? Violet, at least, had her full closet still in the house when she passed, but it seems safe to assume that Tate and Hayden did not have any clothes on the property. Maybe there’s a shopping mall in the afterlife.

All things aside, I adore "American Horror Story," and as I said, this is my favorite season. As a writer myself, I know that ideas don’t always transfer properly to paper, or in Ryan Murphy’s case, the screen, in a way that readers or viewers will understand. That being said, I sincerely hope I have inspired some of you to go back and watch this fantastic season. Just try not to fall into the plot holes.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
