10 Basic Costumes To Avoid This Halloween

Halloween is all about being creative and showing off your best self. Yes, it is easy to stick with the same old costumes, usually consisting of some sort of animal ears, a tail, booty shorts, and fishnets. However, there are so many other unique costumes you can come up with that can help you become noticed and have a more memorable Halloween. Here are some of the costumes you should avoid this year if you really want to stand out from all the other basic girls.

1. Devil and angel

Yes, it's cute especially if you want to do something with your best friend, but it's so outdated and you can do so much better than wearing a tight red or white dressed paired with devil horns or a halo.

2. Mickey and Minnie

As much as I love Disney, I am SO sick of seeing Mickey and Minnie costumes. There are many other Disney characters to choose from.

3. Cat

Basically, a cat is known as the typical white girl Halloween costume. Just avoid it.

4. Disney Princesses

Again, it was cute at first, and I love Disney, but it's just become way too common and lost its uniqueness.

5. Marvel Superheroes

As if you didn't see enough elementary school aged boys dressing up as superheroes, now you can't stop seeing college girls dressed up as them.

6. Nerd

No, you don't actually look like a nerd- somehow you look slutty in booty shorts, thigh high socks and suspenders.

7. Bunny

A.K.A, playboy bunny.

8. Minions

It was a really cute idea the first year the movie came out, but now I'm sick of seeing it.

9. Thing 1 and Thing 2

Yes, it's easy to throw on a Thing 1 or Thing 2 tee shirt and red booty shorts, but there are so many better ideas.

10. Victoria's Secret Angels

So your costume is a lacy bra and a robe? Just leave that for when you go to sleep.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
