How to Be Happy Again and Combat Loneliness

    It’s time to be happy again.

    I am a very positive person. I smile easily and always try to find the good in a situation. But the past few months I have been extremely unhappy, lonely, and just sad. Spending time alone was no longer fun and I just wanted attention all the time. I started to become clingy to my significant other and cried all the time. Basically, I became a different person and for the past three or four months I didn’t self identify as the positive happy person, I self-identified as the lonely depressed girl.

    Even thinking about it now I have no idea what caused this shift. But I don’t think that’s too important right now. What’s important is finding ways to get back to being happy again. And these past weeks I’ve found how to be happy again, and how to love being alone with myself again.

    All the photos in this post are ones I took by myself! I thought it was super fitting since it was time I spent alone to take them and photography is one thing I always really enjoy.

    Morning Routine

    My biggest tip is to take the time to enjoy your mornings. I had gotten into the habit of staying in bed until the very last minute and then throwing on clothes and going to work still feeling tired and crappy.

    Now, I set my alarm for ten minutes earlier to give myself more time alone in the mornings. I use those ten minutes to read the news, something I’ve always wanted to stay on top of. And then I get out of bed and make breakfast and do my makeup while watching YouTube videos.

    Spooky but Sweet: Skeleton Tights at the Apple Orchard

    Styling skeleton tights may seem like something for only emo, gothic, or Halloween obsessed people, but that is simply closed-minded! Skeleton tights can easily be made into something actually quite adorable and wearable! And to prove it, I have this outfit I wore to an apple orchard.

    I gave up on trying to dress completely girly or completely emo a long time ago, and have come to terms with my sweet spot being somewhere in between. Thus the “school-girl who could also maybe be a demon?” look was born.

    Or if you’re a Taylor Swift fan, I like to say my style is like her lyrics from Blank Space: “Darling I’m a nightmare, dressed like a daydream.” Except, the nightmare comes out a little more in October.

    What I’m trying to say is, I actually don’t dress super “goth” or “Halloween.” Not even during spooky season. And I never dress super girly. So if you’re the same, or fall more on the feminine side or the dark demon side of the spectrum, incorporating skeleton tights into your outfit is really quite easy.

    The Best Halloween Movies (& Shows) on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime

    If you hadn’t already figured it out, ya girl is obsessed with Halloween and spooky season. We. Love. Creepy. Things. And there’s nothing better than a good creepy Halloween movie while snuggling up on your couch with your new Jack-O-Lantern fuzzy blanket.

    But we don’t all have cable, or AT&T TV Now, or money to rent Hocus Pocus for the fifth time. Soooo I put together a pretty comprehensive list of all the best Halloween movies (and tv shows) that you can stream now!

    I’ve divvied them up into three categories, depending on which streaming platform they’re on. So if you (or your super cool aunt) has Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, you just found your next movie to stream.

    Halloween Movies

    Scream (1, 3, 4) – I just watched the first Scream movie and I’m so mad at myself for not watching them sooner. Slasher movies are the best because they have all the gore and thrill, but add in so much comedy that you don’t go to sleep wondering if a masked man is inside your closet.

    Coraline – I watched this once or twice as a child but never again. This movie scarred me for life. A creepy second mom who wants to gouge my eyes out and sew buttons over the holes? Why is this a kids’ movie again?

    Happy official start of Spooky Season! I personally declared it fall a couple of weeks ago, but now it’s official according to the autumnal equinox. To celebrate, and since I’ve been ready for weeks, I’m sharing my fall bedroom decor.

    I usually wait until October and just throw up some pumpkins and a witchy sign and call it good. But I did that the past four years and I felt like I didn’t get enough ~fall.~ So this year, we’re going all out.

    I got most of my fall decor from Target and Michael’s so it’s all super affordable, I promise! Especially if you have self-control and don’t buy three times what you need, like me. Oops.

    My Room before Halloween Decor

    If you saw my bedroom tour last year then you know the gist of what my bedroom looked like before now. It was all basically the same, except just a little bit different of a setup.

    Whether you saw it or not, I have a few photos just to show you the before so you can see the full transformation!
