10 Reasons Why You Should Work At A Haunted Attraction This October

Looking for a job? Consider applying to be a scare actor!

1. Professionals do your hair and make up for you before work.

Relax as very talented make up artists transform your face into that of the undead with the use of prosthetics and air brush guns. There’s nothing like having a personal stylist; whether they’re pampering you in glam make up, or FX make up! The time spent in that chair is dedicated to you and making you look your best.

2. You have permission to take your anger out on guests.

What better way to unleash your built up stress and anger than by screaming? Even better, screaming at someone! Stomp, growl, grunt, yell, do what you please to release that frustration. There’s no other job where “angry resting face” is welcomed.

The HeForShe Campaign Has Hit 1 Million Supporters

Emma Watson has proven herself to be even more power off camera than she is at Hogwarts.

Gender equality is perhaps one of the most controversial topics that surfaces in our society, as well as in the media. I recently came across a speech by actress, Emma Watson on behalf of the issue. This speech was first given about two years ago at the United Nations Headquarters in New York for the launching of the HeForShe campaign. HeForShe is a global campaign with efforts to end inequality for women and young girls. Emma Watson, who is most famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series is currently one of the United Nation’s Women Global Goodwill Ambassador.

Watson gave some startling statistics, that now, two years after the speech are still issues:

“It will be 75 years until women are paid the same as men for doing the same work.”

An Open Letter To My Little Sister Graduating High School

It takes a special kind of person to do what you do.

Two years ago today, I walked across our high school’s football field, diploma in hand, ready to embark on the next chapter of my life. As I reminisce on my own high school career, graduation, and first two years of college, I cannot help but wish for time to slow down. You may not feel that way now, but trust me, if you feel like high school flew by, college will be over in the blink of an eye. Live in the moment and appreciate each minute of it because there’s no going back.

Watching you graduate the other day was such a proud big sister moment! As they called your name, surprisingly pronouncing it correctly, I had to prepare myself. By preparing myself I mean I had to open Snap Chat and take a deep breathe in order to be the loudest cheerer in the crowd. I’d say that feat was accomplished as you shot me the dirtiest of looks for my banshee call before continuing to walk across the field. At that moment, I realized my job was accomplished. I had successfully annoyed you for 18 years. I picked on you, stole your clothes, ate your leftovers, made you cry…and hopefully made you smile. Most importantly, I watched you grow into the beautiful and strong young woman you’ve become.

‘Me Before You’ Review

 A story of true friendship.

More often than not, films based on popular novels are disappointments to book fans, as they tend to change or even leave out key character and story elements. This was not the case, however with Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You, as she also wrote the screenplay. Book fans are still being drawn to the theater because of this unique trait surrounding the film.

Me Before You follows a blooming romance between the wealthy banker, Will Traynor and his caregiver, Louisa Clark.  After becoming paralyzed in an accident, Traynor, now confined to a wheelchair and clinically depressed, finds happiness and friendship in Clark. The two form a beautiful bond, which heartbreakingly must face whether or not one should put himself before their partner.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Review

Longtime Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans were let down by the second installment of the resurrected phenomenon.

Succeeding Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), Out of the Shadows, directed by Dave Green is sure to leave both fans and critics alike in utter disappointment. While it was named one of this summer’s blockbuster films, reviews show that Out of the Shadows will most definitely not go down in history as a successful comic remake. Longtime Ninja Turtles fans seemed to rush and see opening night premieres, but soon enough are likely to completely forget the movie ever happened.

Being that the proceeding film told the backstories of characters Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael, Out of the Shadows conveniently was able to dive right into the action. A little too much action. With lines few and far between from the scarcely dressed news reporter, April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her cameraman, Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), the majority of the movie is just CGI fighting. This easily makes it seem like you are watching someone play a video game.

Relay for Life at MSU

Students at Montclair State University prove that Relay For Life is more than a fundraiser.

Each year, Relay For Life at Montclair State University continues to grow. Tables and tents belonging to each team lined Dioguardi Field’s track as participants walked to support the American Cancer Society. This year, the theme was superheroes, and everyone was encouraged to come dressed up and ready to fight back against cancer. Relay For Life is designed to bring a community of people together to honor those we have lost to cancer, support those who are fighting and celebrate the survivors.
