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.

A Day At The Beach, As Told By A Beach Hater
Alyssa Rutkowski

Unlike most of the population, going to the beach is not something I look forward to when summer approaches. I know this sounds inhuman to most people, but there are a few others like me out there that would rather be anywhere, doing anything, other than going to the beach. However, if all of my friends are planning a beach day, I will suck it up. A couple weeks ago, I found myself doing just that, and here’s how it went:

25 Things To Know By 25

I know that age is just a number, but with that comes a number of things you need to know.

25 Things To Know By 25

1. Water is your best friend.

This may seem so obvious, but those who are still not consuming enough water on a daily basis, like myself, clearly need a refresher. Life can get so crazy with everything that is going on that not only may you forget, but caffeine may seem like your best friend instead. Which coffee may be a close second I am not going to lie, but there is only so much coffee can do for you while water can do a million others. Putting your obvious health aside, water can also keep your skin looking fresh with age and keep your energy longer.

A Reason To Be. A Reason To Dance.

Take a deep breath, step out on stage, and live.

A Reason To Be. A Reason To Dance.

The sun is barely awake but the shrill sound of my alarm is assaulting my slumber. My eyes are tired, but my heart is inundated. My world is suddenly filled with a wispy morning holding on to the promise of magic. My makeup brushes transform me into a being that can be seen from the back of any auditorium. Everything comes together; seeing team mates, playing your music over and over, stretching in cramped hallways and having team heart to hearts in secluded stairwells. All the nuances of a life art: the smell of hairspray engulfing a dressing room, the heat radiating off the metal lighting stands backstage, the littlest things give me the shivers because they just let me know that I’m home. It is bliss and adrenaline and the closest thing to pure magic I will ever get.
