  • Get ready for Halloween

Don’t let Halloween sneak up on you. Get ready for the spookiest night of the year before it’s too late. Whether you make your own costumes or buy all the parts, now is the time to start putting it all together.

  • Watch Mallrats

Although it flopped at the box office, Mallrats has since become a cult classic. Since the film celebrates its 25th anniversary this Tuesday (October 20), why not relieve the fun and shenanigans? You can purchase or rent it from iTunes, Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube, the Microsoft Store, and Vudu.

  • Go apple picking

Before fall completely disappears, go apple picking and embrace the season. Whether you buy apples, drink some cider, or just enjoy the fresh air, it can be loads of fun to grab some friends and have a good time.

  • Binge a show

Everyone has a TV show they enjoy. Why not restart the show and watch your favorite season, start from the beginning, or select your favorite episodes? Or you can try sitting down and watching a show on your watchlist.

  • Try Disney+ Group Watch

Disney+ recently released a group watch feature. Although it still has a few bugs, I’ve had a lot of fun watching shows and movies with friends. Since there is no chat feature, I enjoyed creating a group with friends on Discord where my friends and I could all type our reactions. We also have video chatted. Zoom is a good option, but you are limited to 40-minute-long meetings with groups larger than two. I prefer Discord or Microsoft Teams since there is no time limit.
