You're Never Too Cool To Dress Up For Halloween

Get creative this spooky season and make the most of your Halloween.


It's undeniable that Halloween is one of the best holidays. For a night (or two separate weekends as the occasion seems to be this year) you get to be someone you normally wouldn't and celebrate with friends. Halloween invites creativity, parties and all kinds of festivities every year. Unfortunately, though, there are those who truly don't enjoy Halloween while simultaneously ignoring all the fun the holiday brings.

When you're younger, the excitement that comes with picking a costume, and showing it off to all your friends is anticipated for weeks on end beforehand. In high school, the excitement is still there but not as enthusiastic. Although, when you get to college the game changes completely, and perhaps for good reason.

With Halloween coming up this year on a Wednesday, several college students are making it a week-long celebration. This means picking several costumes, attending different parties, and filling in the time between with other like-minded fall celebrations. It's a week to let your creativity run free and lose all self of identity. Additionally, it's a time to hang out with others and enjoy all the festivities that come with the spooky season.

Even some adults take the holidays into their own hands by hostings parties, with Halloween conventions of their own. Halloween themed snacks and games are offered at a plethora of these parties, and even prizes for the best costume are given out as well. While not all adults partake in the holiday, some are brave enough to let loose for a day and let their inner creativity out.

So if you're one of those people who doesn't enjoy Halloween as much as typical people do, try letting loose for yourself this year. You can be whoever, or whatever you want for a night without the judgment of others and perhaps that's what makes it so cool. The costume ideas are endless and you're never alone in your zaniness. You're never too cool for Halloween.

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.

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.
