If the sun disappeared and monsters began to roam the pitch-black streets and Twitter was your only reliable way of contacting the outside world, what would you do? The Twitter account TheSunVanished tries to answer this question in one of the most creative pieces of multimedia fiction I've ever seen.

After hearing about the account, I finally delved into it a few days ago and it is a wild ride. From disturbing flashing lights caught on film to home intrusions and mistrust, this story has everything a good horror story needs. No one has a clear idea of what is going on, adding another layer of mystery.

To avoid speculation, we're going to try and dissect the story using just the facts, starting with the first tweet where we get any solid information, a video the owner of the account took of a news report.

The television has a caption that reads "RIOTS BREAK OUT AFTER SUN DISAPPEARS" and a reporter detailing what has happened. Then, a loud, low noise rumbles and the camera turns towards the darkness.

This is the first hint at the strange beings haunting this world. The second comes from when TheSunVanished ventured outside for the first time since the sky went black.

We hear a noise again but see nothing except a red, flashing light. Next, we get confirmation that the entire sky is dark, not just the sun. Next, we find out that the flashing lights chase people. From there, TheSunVanished hears something fly overhead and comes into contact with one of his friends.

Next, we get an image of a man standing outside completely still and a warning from TheSunVanshed's friend.

We find out that TheSunVanished's friend is currently stranded on the highway but is still alive. While TheSunVanished waits for him, (s)he notices a light downstairs and goes to check it out. Once it catches sight of TheSunVanished, it starts blinking red.

From there, TheSunVanished stays away from the downstairs and open windows as much as possible but the beings know that (s)he lives there now. The beings break-in.

TheSunVanished then sets up some basic alarms and notices his/her friends is acting funny. (S)He begins to question the friend to see if he can confirm his identity.

TheSunVanished is still going and still surviving. If you're interested in following this "War of the Worlds"-esque adventure, I'd recommend checking it out here!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
