It's that time of the year when Freeform is playing Halloween movies all day long for the month of October.

Don't get me wrong, I love some good Halloween movies, but Disney Halloween movies I watched as a kid beats any scary "Halloween horror" movies there is out now. I mean, I was scared to leave my house after Hocus Pocus and see vacuums in the sky, to being scared my mom was going to go on a date and be taken by a Vampire. I feel like watching Disney movies from my childhood makes me feel young but also old at the same time.

I hope you love Disney Halloween movies as much as I do. Here are my top 10 Halloween movies growing up.

10. Tower of Terror (1997)

One of Kirsten Dusts greatest rolls in her teen years, and I had the biggest crush on Steve Guttenberg...who knew! I thought this movie was super cool and suspenseful.

9. Don't Look Under the Bed (1999)

I was scared of looking under my bed in general. If I dropped a stuffed animal under my bed I'd make my brother grab it for me WITH the lights on. This movie? Didn't help my problem.

8. Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire (2000)

This was the first time I fell in love with actress Caroline Rhea before Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It's a shame that man was a vampire because he looked good in a suit. Yet we all knew he was too good to be true.

7. Under Wraps (1997)

This is the one when three 12 year olds accidentally bring a two thousand year old mummy back to life. I mean, what could go wrong? A lot.

6. Twitches Too (2007)

Giphy

All I can say is the second isn't as good as the first...that just might be my opinion but I'm just saying.

5. Twitches (2005)

Giphy

Growing up I watched Sister Sister, and so of course when I heard that Tia and Tamara Mowry was getting their own movie I obviously tuned in. I mean who doesn't love a classic movie where someone figures out that they have magical powers, but instead of just one there were TWO people. (Who just happened to be twins!)

4. Hocus Pocus (1993)

Giphy

OK hear me out. I love Hocus Pocus and as a kid it kinda scared me. Yet as I grow older and watch it thousands of times during the month of October, I have to put it away until next October. I don't want to say it's completely over-rated..but

3. Halloweentown 2: Kalabar's Revenge (2001)

Giphy

After the success after the first Halloweentown, I wasn't surprised they got a second movie! I never trusted that boy Kal, and especially his father Kalabar. I feel like Halloweentown II did not disappoint even though Gort's house stresses me the heck out every time I watch those scenes.

2. Halloweentown (1998)

Giphy

I remember the first time I watched Halloweentown and I thought the taxi driver Benny was the funniest thing! I feel like I don't have to explain this film because I hope when you think of Halloweentown you think of Benny and the giant Pumpkin the middle of town!

1. Phantom of the Megaplex (2000)

Giphy

This is hands down my favorite Halloween movie by Disney. This poor kid, Pete Riley has to save the day with people trying to ruin the movie premiere. Staff disappearing, broken popcorn machine, and a secret downstairs? What else could you ask for? (also I had the biggest crush on Pete Riley.)

Halloweentown 3 didn't make the list or Halloweentown 4. I mean Halloweentown 4 I'm still mad about. I mean, you can't replace the leading lady with a whole other person and think us kids aren't going to notice?!

To High School Seniors In Their Last Semester

Dammit, you made it. The final semester of your senior year. You’re at the top of the food chain of high school, and it feels so good. You’re probably praying this last semester flies by, that you get out of town as soon as possible.

At this point, you’re calling teachers by their first names, the entire staff knows you by name, and you’re walking around school standing tall, owning those hallways. You’re convinced you’re ready to leave and move on to the next chapter in your life.

You’ve already experienced your last football game, standing in the cold in the front row of the student section all season long, decked out in your school colors and cheering loud and proud. That is, until they lost, and you realized you will never have that experience again. Never again.

You already had your last winter break. Preparing and celebrating the holidays with your family, ice skating and sledding with your best friends. Those quiet nights alone in your room watching Netflix, taking for granted your loved ones just a few rooms away. Never again.

If you’re an athlete, you may have already played in your last game or ran your last race. The crowd cheering, proudly wearing your school’s name across your chest, giving it your all. For some, it may be the end of your athletic career. Before you knew it, you were standing in an empty gym, staring up at the banners and thinking about the mark you left on your school, wondering where on earth the time went. Never again.

I’m telling you right now, you’re going to miss it all. Everything you’ve ever known. Those early mornings when you debate going to first hour because you really need those McDonald’s hash browns. The late nights driving home from practice, stopping for ice cream of course, ready for a late night of homework. Getting food on a whim with your friends. Endless fights with your siblings. Your favorite chips in the pantry. A fridge full of food. Coming home to and getting tackled by your dog. Driving around your hometown, passing the same sights you’ve seen every day for as long as you can remember. Hugs from your mom after a long day. Laughs with your dad. And that best friend of yours? You’re going to miss them more than anything. I’m telling you right now, nothing will ever be the same. Never again.

Before you start packing your bags, slow down, take a deep breath, and look around. You’ve got it pretty good here. The end of your senior year can be the time of your life; it’s truly amazing. So go to the winter dance, go to Prom, spend Senior Skip Day with your classmates, go to every sporting event you can, while you still can. College is pretty great, but it’s the little things you’re gonna miss the most. Don’t take it for granted because soon, you’ll be standing in a packed gym in your cap and gown, wondering where the heck the time went. You’ve got a long, beautiful life ahead of you, full of joy but also full of challenges. You’re going to meet so many wonderful people, people who will treat you right and people who won’t.


So, take it all in. Be excited for the future and look forward to it, but be mindful of the present. You’ve got this.

9 Tofu-Chan The Shiba Inu YouTube Videos Will Instantly Put a Smile On Your Face

Don't Japanese dogs just make you bark for joy?

I have kind of odd hobbies. In my free time I love falling down Wikipedia rabbit holes, playing trivia and learning about true crime. Most all, though, I take great pleasure in finding semi-obscure YouTube channels and sending random videos to my friends with little to no context. Usually they tell me they're too busy to watch them, but whenever I send Tofu-Chan videos, they always tell me that the video made their day. I hope it'll makes yours too!

1. "Call 1800 Töbe"

This was the first Tofu-Chan video that I stumbled across, and it's still a gem. I personally was a fan because I have wayyyy too many breads. Gotta send this in quick!

2. "Friends of Tofu Charity Art Exhibition"

Even though this is a promo video for a meetup, it's still adorable and hilarious. Plus the famous art collector Ongo Gablogian is in the thumbnail, so how could you resist clicking?

3. "Tofu Karaoke"

This video has got to be the most wholesome thing I've ever seen. If a Japanese man voicing a dog singing a song about smiles set to the tune of "Africa" by Toto can't cheer you up, then nothing can.

4. "Tofu Gets a Donut'

Did you know that donuts are an essential part of the Shibe diet? You didn't? Well good because that's a lie! Please don't feed your dog donuts!

5. "The Secret to Smiles"

Tofu-Chan picks you up and motivates you in this 34 second video. He reminds you of a good technique for cheering yourself up on a bad day. Never forget he loves you!

6. "Tofu's Journey"

Everyone loves the galaxy meme, but I promise you'll love this the most of all. Subscribe to Pewdiepie? More like subscribe to Tofu-Chan!

7. "Tofu's Planet Earth"

Otherwise known as "The Only Documentary You'll Ever Need to Watch." Tofu's documentary is thrilling, engaging and will keep you on the edge of your seat for its entire two minute duration. A true tour de force.

8. "Tofu's Dream"

Perhaps the most absurd and surreal Tofu-Chan video, everyone's favorite Shiba Inu discusses an interesting dream he had about a pizza slice. We can all relate to a good food-centered dream once in a while.

9. "Töb Ross"

Bob Ross is already one of the greatest souls to ever touch the earth, but combined with Tofu-Chan? The wholesomeness exceeds all known levels!
