Halloween: Sexy For All?

Halloween is a little under two weeks away, which means that it's time to think of costumes. You maybe like me, and try to opt for homemade options, or you can go the easy route and buy a costume from a store like Spirit Halloween or Halloween Adventure. Halloween stores carry a variety of relevant pop culture costumes, but the glaringly obvious feature, are the "sexy costumes." Manufactured for women, sexy costumes are super revealing pieces of fabric meant to resemble a costume. Often "sexy" costumes are different occupations, characters, or everyday objects. They're frustrating. If someone wants to wear a sexy costume, there's nothing wrong with that, the frustration stems from the fact that sexy costumes are a ploy to further make women into sexual objects. And, they can sometimes be utterly ridiculous.

1. Sexy Nun

Maybe I went to the wrong school, but the nuns that taught at my Catholic school didn't look like this. Sexy Nun just baffles me because nuns are not meant to be sexy.. at all. They take a vow of chastity, so their lives are about as sexy as a Ken Burns special on the Dust Bowl. Although, this could be what they're wearing underneath their habits, so maybe I shouldn't be so quick to judge.

2. Sexy TSA Agent

I don't know about you, but to me, there's nothing sexier than the TSA. Waiting in ridiculously long lines while sweat is on every inch of your body, having a Ken Bone look-a-like give you a good pat down, move over "Fifty Shades of Gray!". If only the TSA agents dressed in uniforms like the costume, flying would be so much more interesting!

3. Sexy Cop

Sexy Cop is a staple in the realm of sexy costumes. While men get to wear an actual pretend cop uniform, women have the option of wearing stilettos, which definitely make chasing after criminals easier. It's comforting to know that costume companies understand a woman's desire to look sexy no matter what occupation she has.

4. Sexy Nemo

"Finding Nemo" is an heartwarming, animated classic with characters beloved by millions over the years. However, it wasn't sexy enough. Well know if you want to be tiny, young clownfish that goes missing, you can now! Instead of attempting to look like an actual fish just wear what looks like dyed ACE bandages stapled together.

5. Sexy Convict

I know that "Orange is is the New Black" has some sexy scenes, but I know that the inmates aren't dressed like this. I took a peak at the "Men's Costumes" and saw that the convict costumes range from orange jumpsuits to the traditional striped rendition. Cool.

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.

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.
