Halloween Costumes At An All-Girls Private School

There are no rules!...Actually there are many rules.

Halloween Costumes At An All-Girls Private School

Halloween is just around the corner, and I find myself utterly lost at what to possibly dress up as this year. I can blame many things, including my lack of motivation, lack of artistic skills, and my limiting college income, but I think what I blame most is the critical period of my personality development, which I spent at an all-girls establishment.

While we all learned many wonderful and amazing things at these institutions, another thing we learned is a lack of enthusiasm and motivation when it comes to our appearance. And while some find that liberating, during special occasions I find this laziness crippling. And trust me ladies, we were the epitome of lazy, especially when looking back upon our Halloween costumes of choice. Upon reflection, I have categorized six of the most popular costume options.

Which one were you?

A Rock

I kid you not, this was one of the most popular costumes. People were actually jealous of the person who came up with this. What it boils down to is this: If it's not real pants, you win.

Me From Yesterday/The Past

Do I even need to say more about this? This was the rock bottom of lazy. The girls that pulled off this stunt were so proud of themselves. It was really just a "creative" way for them to get out of not wearing a costume at all.

The Cat

All you need for this particular look are some black leggings and some eyeliner. This look became popular for its ability to be done in under five minutes...obviously.

The Princess

Then, there is this girl. She went the whole nine yards. I'm talking makeup, hair, heck, she probably shaved her legs, too. We all scoffed at her in the hall. Does she even go here? Does she even know the rules that you're only cool if you don't care about Halloween? Then we realize, she's just recycling her prom dress and slapping on some mascara and a crown. It still can fall under our category of minimal effort.

Our Favorite Teacher Couple That We Are Shipping

Let's not deny that there was nothing better than gossiping about the social lives of our favorite teachers. We prayed for our favorites to fall in love and create beautiful mini versions of themselves in baby form. As far as costumes go, this type of overachieving was totally acceptable given the importance of the mission at hand. (Thanks Ellen and Becca for letting me use this pic) (#Sutton&Keiper4ever)

The People Who Go All Out

And then we have these people. And yes I'm talking about all the Jane Austens, the Rosie the Riveters, the One Directioners, and yes, even you Backstreet Boys. The amount of time and effort that these people put into one day is applaudable. And to be honest, they always look super cool. They inspire us to try harder for next year, but then next Halloween roles around, and before we even know it it's the night before, and all we have lying around is a pair of leggings and some eyeliner...oops.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
