10 Easy Halloween Costumes For Girls On A Budget

It's finally that time of the year again. Fall is in the air. Which means Halloween is approaching and choosing what to wear for Halloween is a struggle. Most college students are on a budget and can't afford to spend tons of dollars on an outfit they plan to wear one or two times. So here are some ideas for easy and non-expensive costume ideas.

1. Black cat.

This costume may seem a bit cliché, but it's one of the easiest costumes a girl could choose. Throw on some black leggings and a black V-neck. Draw on a nose and whiskers and find some cute cat ears and a tail. Simple, cute and easy.

2. Athlete.

Not only can you represent your favorite team, but also you will be extremely comfortable while doing so. Throw on your favorite jersey; whether it is football, basketball, or baseball. This costume is simple. Pair it with your favorite shorts or jeans and while you are at it, put some black paint on your face or some sweatbands, completing the perfect outfit.

3. Three blind mice.

This costume idea is great for a couple of friends that want to go as a group. Girls can put on any neutral color shirt and pants, add some stylish mouse ears and pair it with dark sunglasses. To go the extra mile you can add a cane to really represent this fun costume.

4. Tourist.

Make this Halloween a warm one by dressing up in a Hawaiian shirt, a visor, and of course the fanny pack. Add on some sunglasses and a little bit of sunscreen on the nose to put the finishing touches to this creative costume.

5. Risky business.

Slide on into the comfiest costume this year. Find yourself a pair of boxers (borrow from your boyfriend or a pal of yours), layer it with a nice button down shirt and slip into some white mid calf socks to finish the outfit.

6. Fifty Shades of Grey.

Get creative with this costume. Wear a pair of black leggings, and a black T-shirt. Run over to your local hardware store and pick up a bunch of different shades of grey and glue them to your body (or be lazy and get the pre-made shirt). You literally are “50 shades of grey".

7. Pumpkin pie.

This is so punny. Head off to your local hobby lobby and pick up an orange shirt a few sizes bigger than what you would normally wear. Draw on the shirt a mathematical pi symbol and tie a green bow in your hair and now you really are pumpkin pie.

8. Rosie the Riveter.

Show some sass while representing this iconic woman. Start by wearing a jean button up shirt with black skinny jeans or leggings on bottom. Tie a nice red bandanna in your hair and throw on some brown combat boots. Top off this look with red lipstick and show off the guns.

9. Nerd.

Dress smart, feel smart. Start by wearing some high waisted pants while tucking in a short sleeve collared shirt and adding suspenders (optional). Slip on some mismatched knee-high socks and the silliest shoes you own. Top off this look by wearing your hair in lopsided pigtails slicked to your head and some taped glasses.

10. Audrey Hepburn.

You can never go wrong with a classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" look. Get a little black dress, black gloves, and some black heals. Finish off this great look with a cigarette holder, a tiny tiara, and a big pearl necklace.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
