Here's Why Halloween Is The Worst Holiday Ever

Holidays are great, but this isn't one of them.

Don't hate me, but I think Halloween is the worst. I always end up wearing a costume and carving pumpkins, but this is actually the worst holiday ever.

1. Trick-Or-Treating

I'm sorry, but why do we have to go door to door to get candy that we end up trading with our friends or siblings anyways? The perfect way to avoid this is to just go trick-or-treating at the store. Here's how it works: you go into the store, you buy your favorite candy, and then you go home and eat it by yourself. Another terrible thing about trick-or-treating is how it's at night. Can we trick-or-treat in the day time? I feel like it would be way safer, and then you could have all evening to sit at home and sort through your loot.

2. Costumes

I don't get why the older you get, the smaller your costume gets. Why is it not acceptable for me to go to a Halloween party, at age 20, wearing a Winnie the Pooh costume? And I'm not talking about a sexy Winnie the Pooh costume (Trust me, they unfortunately exist). Last year I dressed up as a cat. But as I was putting on a XXXL sweatshirt and leggings, my friend told me that I should probably stick to wearing shorts and crop top. Despite the fact that it was 45 degrees outside, I took their advice and froze my butt off the entire night. I just want to go back to the days where I had a hooded sweatshirt on under my costume, essentially destroying the costume.

3. Carving pumpkins

I'm pretty sure I have a weird pumpkin allergy, because whenever I stick my hand inside the pumpkin to get the guts out, my arms break out in a rash. But since I mentioned the pumpkin guts, can we talk about how gross the inside of a pumpkin is? You pull out the nasty part (which is usually cold and slimy) and then people proceed to sort through it to find the seeds to bake later. Nasty. And while we're on the topics of pumpkins, I think pumpkin spice is overrated. Sorry not sorry.

4. Everything is scary

Ghosts are scary. Murderers are scary. Zombies are scary. Scary movies are scary. I always see girls posting online about how they just need someone to watch a scary movie with. If someone was watching a scary movie with me, they would have to keep increasing the volume to hear the movie over the sounds of my screams and tears. I am scared of pretty much everything Halloween related, and even looking at masks in the store makes me jump. Halloween basically gives people a free pass to be scary, which is not ok.

I guess what I'm trying to get at here is that I can't wait for Christmas.

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.
