October, also known as Spook-tober, is the first time it really starts to feel like fall.
Surrounded by orange and red tones, pumpkins and festive decorations can really get you in the spirit. However, when you have six exams within the next two weeks, an essay and a project for your "easy A" elective, you're excused if you aren't too thrilled about the holiday.
As it gets closer and closer though you can't help but put the stress aside to get ready to be spooky.
1. You're constantly surrounded by pumpkin spice lattes.
2. There's so much stress of finding an attractive costume when you just want to put a sheet over your head.
3. Do other people just not have exams? How are we going out every night?
4. The FOMO of missing out on Hallo-weekend is too real.
5. You're so broke you can't even afford that sheet to put over your head.
6. DIY costumes >>> the heaping pile of homework beside you
7. You feel a bit more stressed than spooky.
8. Carving pumpkins in your apartment is so cute until you get half-way through and realize that it's just really not ideal.
9. October means mid-terms are in full swing, and by full swing, I mean pushing you off a cliff over and over again.
10. The annual predicament of going all out or throwing on cat ears and calling it a day is hitting full force.
11. Then you realize you aren't a kid anymore and die a bit inside.
12. You have absolutely no time to watch Halloween movies but you will sacrifice sleep and grades for them. Priorities.
