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

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

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994855969657910-944053503_hiding%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=33&h=e283354286c33ab53d3b0fbfa8e6f7bbed1da6cdf093992ce5cf8af7469cc282&size=980x&c=1876038439 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994855969657910-944053503_hiding%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D33%26h%3De283354286c33ab53d3b0fbfa8e6f7bbed1da6cdf093992ce5cf8af7469cc282%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1876038439%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F6359948565821879191461882135_the%2520end%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=908&h=7384fce030438204a3e388d7e5aedc85f5eb8df395c86ebc5b41b315b8df4b4c&size=980x&c=2993753626 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F6359948565821879191461882135_the%252520end%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D908%26h%3D7384fce030438204a3e388d7e5aedc85f5eb8df395c86ebc5b41b315b8df4b4c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2993753626%22%7D" expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994860751451187-731831194_more%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=970&h=56f258a4378d3b0b2a834a468711497730a0dc94400ab98a0c50d950348e7b4d&size=980x&c=3385318482 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994860751451187-731831194_more%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D970%26h%3D56f258a4378d3b0b2a834a468711497730a0dc94400ab98a0c50d950348e7b4d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3385318482%22%7D" expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994860840052924466410587_credits%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=32&h=d07257fc035d8fad58b373a5092ffbf4b8b3a679cd5a2852cf007233703d10d9&size=980x&c=2201593122 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994860840052924466410587_credits%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D32%26h%3Dd07257fc035d8fad58b373a5092ffbf4b8b3a679cd5a2852cf007233703d10d9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2201593122%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994864989332108879490353_bed%2520time%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=719&h=abb956936ad1b3a3fb2344107e7c2245c34d081355e17fcf2fbf2745d54e1013&size=980x&c=3031788524 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994864989332108879490353_bed%252520time%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D719%26h%3Dabb956936ad1b3a3fb2344107e7c2245c34d081355e17fcf2fbf2745d54e1013%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3031788524%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994865169987558-1442901687_keep%2520lights%2520on%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=905&h=810d8a27d1bad9eaee44c5e1b4e06f24a575da5d6472170c5ba73f6cab440fcd&size=980x&c=1191021467 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994865169987558-1442901687_keep%252520lights%252520on%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D905%26h%3D810d8a27d1bad9eaee44c5e1b4e06f24a575da5d6472170c5ba73f6cab440fcd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1191021467%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994865788668101-2028030460_nightmares%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=420&h=6e9ab306c4f76a5474e3e5400492cc21c505be4225fbaa097858c54155df5ba9&size=980x&c=143044209 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994865788668101-2028030460_nightmares%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D420%26h%3D6e9ab306c4f76a5474e3e5400492cc21c505be4225fbaa097858c54155df5ba9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D143044209%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F22%2F635994865944496918396807286_jumpy%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=173&h=3a5bc2aa67e86b5bf4b66df4c484f83d75ce440280ecfff496312b5313a17823&size=980x&c=2934885998 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F22%252F635994865944496918396807286_jumpy%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D173%26h%3D3a5bc2aa67e86b5bf4b66df4c484f83d75ce440280ecfff496312b5313a17823%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2934885998%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
