Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktacular

As an adaptation of Jill Thompson's children's comic book series Scary Godmother, this movie is hands down the best Halloween movies and here is why.

1. Diversity of characters


There are the outgoing social characters, the reserved quiet ones, preppy and the goths, the huge monsters and the skinny ones. Even though so many of the characters are different, this movie shows that everyone can get along despite being different and "scary" looking.

2.  It is kid and adult friendly


Both the books and the movies were created by Thompson to create a bridge gap between adults and children. Thompson found it hard to find comics and stories that were kid-friendly but not too childish that the adults would feel insulted reading. The movie includes witty comments that are all profanity-free and overall teaches valuable lessons.

3. It teaches valuable lessons


It teaches children (and adults) that even though someone may look a certain way, they are not their stereotypes. That each individual is unique and different and that is okay! Even if everyone is different and may think and act differently, everyone can get along!

It also shows that you should never judge a book by its cover so to speak. Just because someone may look "scary", you should get to know that person and you will be surprised by who you befriend!

As Skully says to Hannah; monsters are a lot like spiders: some are really nice, and some are not so nice. But all of them are creepy and crawly.

4. We all have fears and nobody is perfect


Jimmy is just like every older brother/sister; a jokester who finds their younger sibling annoying. They just want to be the cool kid and don't want their younger siblings hanging around them. At the end, when Scary Godmother scares Jimmy, it goes to show that Jimmy and every other brother/sister aren't as tough as they make everyone think. They are human and prone to be scared just like everyone else.

This is why it is the best movie and nobody can tell me differently.

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
