How it Feels When Halloween is Over

I'm handling it... well.

How it Feels When Halloween is Over

I've always been a Halloween fanatic. I love the candy, the costumes, having a reason to watch a bunch of scary movies, and extending the holiday that was supposed to be one day into an entire month. So now that it's November, I'm hit with a bunch of emotions.

1. Denial.

Halloween lasts at least until the last day of the Day of the Dead, right? We have a valid reason to keep eating goodies and going to parties. I could probably stretch the festivities until Thanksgiving. Halloween has just started!

2. Sadness.

Costume idea: dress up as Kim K so that when it inevitably hits you that Halloween is over, your costume turns into this iconic picture.

3. Excitement.

ALL THE CANDY AFTER HALLOWEEN IS ON SALE. How could you not be excited about that?? And if you have any use for a plastic skull, you could buy one for a really good price. I don't know who the people are who buy Halloween decorations when they're on sale, but I aspire to be that prepared for the next year.

4. Readiness.

The Christmas Countdown starts! (Or Hanukkah) I know, I'm skipping Thanksgiving. But it's hard to be excited about a holiday that's in between the two best holidays. It's time to put up the lights and start watching feel-good family movies. Sorry, roommates, but you're about to be subjected to way too many Christmas songs.

5. Relief.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I love showing off my body during this season just as much as the next confident, wonderful woman. But it gets pretty cold around this time. Like, I want to wear this costume... but I also kind of want to wear my sloth onesie and wrap a huge blanket around me. So cheers to November for starting the season of hot chocolate and sitting next to the fire.

So Halloween might be over, but the festivities aren't. Time to eat too much, curl up in your bed, and be thankful that the beginning of November means we're almost done hearing about Donald Trump.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
