Sorry for no article Friday. We have a bunch of company from Saskatoon for Thanksgiving so I was super busy. Also, I'm posting the last article in my Astrology Aesthetics series (Sagittarius) on Wednesday.

Anyways, I'm doing a list of movies to watch in October because it's my favourite month. I love Halloween. It's probably my favourite time of month. I didn't make it a calendar because I hate routines. It makes me feel like I have to do it. This is a list to just do on my/your own time. Skip what you don't like. Watch what you like as much as you want.
