If You Get Scared By Scary Movies, You Know These To Be True

If You Get Scared By Scary Movies, You Know These To Be True

You get scared easily, but you still watch horror films.


OK, so you hate watching scary movies, but somehow you always find yourself watching them. Probably not by yourself, though, because lets face it -- you just aren't that brave yet. You all know what happens when you go over to a friend's house and they want to watch the latest (or oldest) thriller, and as soon as the title pops up on the screen, you regret your decision.

1. When the scary man comes out of nowhere you scream and jump about five feet in the air.

It seems like every time the ghost or mass murderer or whatever happens to be the bad person in the movie moves even an inch, it only makes you more scared, especially when they come out of nowhere.

2. You are your friends' comic relief.

At least someone gets a laugh out of this torment whenever you get scared by pretty much everything.

3. You don't want to finish the movie, but you have to because not knowing the ending will only make things worse.

You know that you have to finish the movie, even if you really cannot handle it anymore -- but you have to know what happens so that when the problem gets resolved, it's over and you can breathe knowing that the bad guy is off the streets.

4. OK, so the movie wasn't that bad now that it's over.

Finally! You start to think that the movie wasn't so bad, and you might even be able to sleep sometime this week. (I said "probably.")

5. No, wait, there's more!

Great, now the movie added another scary part, the worst part of the movie by far. Just when you think it is all over, another part is added, so of course you have to watch that part too.

6. Credits? They didn't solve that last part!

Credits are always worse in scary movies because they leave the last part unresolved, so you can't even tell yourself that it's over, and that you won't be next.

7. Then you see that the movie was "based on a true story."

Great, now you can't tell yourself that it couldn't happen. So you pretty much have to come to terms with the fact that you are next.

8. You then try to go to sleep.

Yeah, like that is ever going to happen again.

9. You have to leave a light on because all the bad things in the movie happened in the dark.

Even though you can't sleep with the light on, you know you have to, because if not, you're just going to be terrified until you fall asleep.

10. You have to convince yourself that every little sound you hear is just "nothing."

But isn't that what the girl in the movie thought right before the big scary man got her? It might be nothing, but just in case, you might want to hide under the covers because that is the best protection from monsters. (All rational ideas go out the window after you watch scary movies.)

11. Now, let the nightmares begin.

Do you really need all that sleep anyway? Because what's the worst thing that can happen if you don't sleep? At least you'll just be the grumpy monster the next morning instead of the real monster getting you in your sleep.

12. Even after you wake up to a bright sun-shiny morning, you are still jumpy for at least a week.

So just tell yourself it could never happen to you, and hope for the best. Hopefully, no one will say "Boo!" for the next week or so.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
