Halloween is a fun holiday filled with candy, ghosts and costumes. And any great holiday has plenty of songs that set the mood perfectly. Here are 10 fun songs to make the season a bit scarier!

1. Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.

Of course this list had to start with a classic. It's almost impossible to avoid this one.

2. Thriller by Michael Jackson

The king of pop and his most successful song were meant to be on this list. From the costumes to the makeup and theatricality, this halloween hit will always be remembered.

3. Monster Mash by Bobby 'Boris' Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers

I bet you're probably reminiscing on the time you had a halloween themed party during middle school and embarrassing yourself by dancing to this song in front of your crush. Don't worry, we've all been there.

4. Black Magic Woman by Fleetwood Mac (popularized by Santana)

As a big fan of Fleetwood Mac, this song sure gives me the chills. It's a very underrated song with a very talented group. Santana amped up the song's electricity by covering it and making a huge hit.

5. The Monster by Eminem ft. Rihanna

Whenever Rihanna and Eminem team up on a song, you know it's going to be a hit. This one is a perfect example. I know I'll be making sure there are no monsters under my bed.

6. Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones

The Stones will forever be iconic and so will this song. If you aren't too familiar with them or find yourself ignoring your parent's music playlist, I recommend listening to this one to introduce yourself to them.

7. Time Warp by The Rocky Horror Picture Show

What's a Halloween playlist without a little bit of Rocky Horror. Not only is it one of the most legendary movies of all time but the soundtrack is outstanding. If you haven't seen the film, watch NOW!

8. This is Halloween by Danny Elfman

Blast this song on whatever device you please. Do it at least once during the spooky season. You can thank me later.

9. Demons by Imagine Dragons

Whether you struggle with your own personal demons or there are actually evil spirits in you room, this uplifting song will sure make all your problems diminish. Plus, who doesn't love Imagine Dragons?!

10. Calling All The Monsters by China Anne McClain

And to top it all off, we can't forget the former A.N.T Farm star with this amazing Halloween party bop. I know this one will be on repeat for me throughout October.

Cheers To Tiger Woods, Whose Comeback Is An Inspiration To Athletes Everywhere

Tiger Woods, cheers to you in actually showcasing that anything is possible on any given day no matter what the past has thrown at you.

Sunday at the Masters, arguably the most iconic day in Sports and I am still in disbelief on what happened. We witnessed what was said to be impossible, an achievement thought to be out of reach but yet the words "Tiger Woods has won the Masters" was uttered by Jim Nantz on Sunday and I guess it is safe to say the impossible has happened... Tiger Woods is back on top. Some may say, "what is so important about Tiger Woods winning another major." Well, Tigers win Sunday at Augusta was not just a win, it was a triumph, a triumph of a 10-year journey to a place he was told he would never be again.

It was November 2009, and "Tiger Woods in the hospital after a crash near his Florida home," was topping news headlines across the country. Two months later Woods was headlining for the wrong reasons again, publicly announcing he was unfaithful to his wife, letting down both his family and fans. Woods then went on to lose sponsorships with Gatorade and At&T;, valued at around 20 million dollars (Golf Digest). At this point, people began to believe it was the beginning of the end for Tiger as his off the course drama began to trump his on the course play. His affairs became publicized and his character was put into question.

As the headlines surrounding Tigers off the course lifestyle calmed down, he began to make his first comeback onto the golf course, a comeback to prove to people he was the same Tiger Woods before all of the drama. Unfortunately for Woods, his body was not cooperating... He underwent four leg surgeries and two back operations in a span of about seven years. These numbers are not including the many minor operations he had while holding the worlds number-one golfer title. After each operation, Woods would rehab play in a tournament and would clearly not be himself. He shot his worst ever professional round of golf and missed the cut at the 2011 PGA Championship, falling out of the Top 50 Professional Golfer rankings for the first time in his career. It was clear Tiger was not Tiger.

Let's fast forward to 2017, Woods is arrested for a DUI after he had a rare reaction to his allergy medicine and crashed his car. He pleads guilty and serves 12 months' probation. When he gets back on the golf course, he continues to have back issues, severely affecting his game. It was in that year Woods was told he may never play golf again... Any sane person would probably stop doing whatever it is they are doing if they got medical advice and were told to do so. In Woods case, clearly, money was not an issue. So why the drive to continue playing? Well that is what makes Woods and his story so remarkable.

As I sit here writing this, his 10-year timeline has gone full circle. The year is 2019, and Woods has gone on a full rollercoaster ride only to end up where we all know he belongs... winning a major championship. This was yet another case of why sports are so beautiful. The sports world erupted after Tiger sank his fifth shot, four-foot putt, on the 18th green, to win the 2019 Masters. Even the other golfers in the tournament were acknowledging the magnitude of this event. Top golfer Dustin Johnson said after his round "it's truly remarkable... there is a difference between a roar and a Tiger roar from the crowd" (h/t CBS Sports).

Instagram posts, Facebook posts, Snapchat stories, and tweets non-stop to constantly remind us that this was not just any ordinary Masters victory. This was Tigers 5th, his first in 15 years, and the end of a long journey. We can all connect to Tiger, a humble person who simply thrives and has perfected his craft. An athlete that has made mistakes, has owned up to them and has not let his mistakes derail his ultimate goals in life. A person who has dealt with adversities with is well-being, countless operations and surgeries and yet he was still able to come together for 4 days in April and prove to not only himself but everyone else what we so longed for, that Tiger can still play professional golf and that Tiger Woods is not going anywhere anytime soon...

As Tiger walked off that 18th green at Augusta national golf course and hugged his son in the same spot he embraced his father, Earl Woods, 22 years earlier after his first Masters win, America took noticed and realized sometimes professional sports is not just a game, it's a platform for all of us to connect and truly realize the beauties in life. Tiger Woods, cheers to you in actually showcasing that anything is possible on any given day no matter what the past has thrown at you.

What They Don't Tell You About College

Everything you need to know before your first year.

5
views

College is great. It's so much better than high school could ever be, but it's not all rainbows and sunshine, either. Here's everything you need to know about college before your first year.

1. It's boring if you don't involve yourself in clubs/activities

There's only so much time classes and hanging out with friends can kill. Involve yourself in clubs, get a job, or join some extra-curricular activity on the side in order to keep yourself occupied.

2. The parties aren't that glamorous 

They can be quite disappointing, actually. There will be some nights where you'll genuinely have a good time and others nights where everything will go wrong. This includes pouring rain, dead parties, and/or overly-drunk friends that need babysitting.

3. The workload can be intense even if you don't procrastinate 

Sometimes, you're going to have to work into the AM regardless of how much planning and working ahead you do.

4. You do see some people more than once 

No matter how large your school may be, you will probably come across some faces more than once.

5. You can be 20 minutes from home and still get homesick

Even though I attend a university that's 25 minutes away from my home, I find myself getting homesick every now and then. Being in college means having little time to talk to your family and, naturally, missing them from time to time.

6. Not everyone is...accepting

People always tell you that college is super open and tolerant, but you will meet many people that are quite literally the opposite. Take that how you will.

7. It's only as fun as you let it be 

It's really easy to get bored in college if you're not taking every opportunity to get out and meet new people. Don't limit yourself to your room, no matter how tired or lazy you may be, because you'll never now what you're missing out on.

8. You're not always going to be in classes that you like 

Most universities require students to take a class or two in every subject regardless of their major. As a journalism major, the fact that I had to take a math and science class was quite possibly the worst news I had ever heard. Fortunately, once you get those classes out of the way, you can continue taking classes you actually enjoy.

9. Time flies! 

The semesters go by fast. Make the most of your four years and remember that life's not supposed to be all that stressful.
