A Letter To Halloween Haters From A Girl Who Loves Halloween

At least ignore us shameless slutty bunnies and cats

A Letter To Halloween Haters From A Girl Who Loves Halloween

We get it. You're that bitter person who hates the cat costume, the slutty bunny, and those sorority girls dressed as Harley Quinns. You would rather see twelve purple balloons stuck onto someone's body as a bunch of grapes or see your friend dressed as that one supporting character from that one movie you and five other on this planet know about.

And despite my condescending tone of voice in the previous paragraph, there is nothing wrong with these preferences for Halloween costumes. There is nothing wrong with taking the more traditional route, nor choosing stand out from your cohorts.

There is something wrong with, however, people bashing on others' self-expression - especially when nothing is offensive. There is no question that some questions are more revealing that others, and we can easily tell when people devote their creative juices into creating something one-of-a-kind. We praise the idea of never judging a book by its cover, but Halloween is, without a doubt, a time when we analyze personalities based on how people dress for a small sliver of the year.

It is probably safe to say that we (not just females) seek attention for the more skin we show. It may also be fine to bet others prefer to be noticed for their creativity rather than their bodies. These (over)generalizations could be accurate, or they could be us completely overthinking Halloween costumes.

Either way, this does not justify us to portray hate on others for their self-expression. We have to be aware of the very fine line of how costumes could be offensive, but think about the reasons as to why seem to hate, not just make assumptions on, the (yes, basic) cat costume. Based on our "logical" thinking, if you see that girl dressed as a slutty bunny to be a slut in real life, we should see you as a judgmental human being who refuses to take account the person's personality.

My point is that we need to stop bringing negativity into the beginning of the holiday season. There is already too much hate with public policy and crime. In college, why can't we just push all of that aside to make the most out of Halloweekend(s)? Treat yourself to some good memories instead of tricking yourself into bashing on others'.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
