8 Things I'd Rather Do With My Boyfriend On Halloween Than Get Drunk At A Party

Who needs a lame frat party when you can snuggle on the couch and eat candy?

Every year, the question of "what am I going to do for Halloween?" lingers over everyone's head, as if you have to do something.

If you're not dressed like a slutty mouse and getting crunk at frat boy Chad's rager, it's like Halloween never happens and you're a total loser. Well, I'm here to tell you that Halloween isn't just mixed drinks and parties you won't remember the next day 'cause you blacked out in the middle of bobbing for apples.

This Halloween, I'm especially lucky because I get to share it with my boyfriend. I'll admit, I've never been a party girl, but even now that I'm happily cuffed, I couldn't imagine dragging us both to a place where we stand around awkwardly for an hour, complaining about our costumes pinching us in places they shouldn't and then going home buzzed with an insane throb in our heads.

So, if you're like me, you'll find that these things are way more fulfilling than getting drunk at some random party.

1. Carve pumpkins together

There's no better activity on Halloween than having a pumpkin carving contest while casually drinking pumpkin beer. Can anyone say, yes please?

2. Go apple picking

Not to mention, this is the PRIME time to make a mini photoshoot happen

3. Bake yummy apple treats

Don't let those apples go to waste! Apple crisp, caramel apples, apple pies, the recipes are endless!

4. Watch scary movies together

Another reason to cuddle even closer? Why not?

5. Go to a haunted house

While I'm not the biggest fan of paying for people to scare the poop outta me, I'd much rather do that than blackout at a party.

6. Take our nieces/nephews/younger siblings trick-or-treating

Little kids in batman and Cinderella costumes could not be any cuter, and when they're not looking, we can sneak some of their candy.

7. Build a fort and tell scary stories

Whoever tells the scariest story gets to eat the most candy. I don't make the rules, it's just law!

8. Literally anything else

No matter what you do, it's still Halloween and you're supposed to have a little extra fun than normal. So, if you really want to, go out to that party, eat that large cheese pizza by yourself, or carve pumpkins with your boyfriend. Whatever you do, enjoy this Halloween and be safe!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
