Halloweek11.03.2013 | Campus and Community
I LOVE Halloween. Most of my friends actually make fun of me for liking it so much. I have my costumes picked out about a month ahead of time, and I never wear the same one twice. To be honest, I’m not even quite sure why I like it so much, I just do.
Since this will be my last Halloween at college, I had to make it a good one. So I went all out and it was exciting and exhausting all at the same time!
It started with the Bar Crawl on Wednesday night, which I was very excited about as it was my first bar crawl AND I got to be in costume! I went as a biker chick, which worked out well because it was a comfortable enough costume to walk around in (always an important thing to keep in mind when choosing a costume). My friends and I started off at the Field House where we played some cards and costume-watched.
Next, we headed over to Flanagan’s—another first for me and I was surprised at how large the inside was, because from the outside it always looks like a cozy, small pub. After that we went over to Milano’s and then we ended up at Tim’s. I had a wonderful time!
Thursday night was the big Halloween party at Tim’s that I went to with some friends from my one fraternity. This was another first for me as previous years I wasn’t able to go or I didn’t even remember hearing about it. I could not believe how crazy PACKED it was, even though it was raining outside! On this particular night, I went as a fairy—not as creative as I would have liked, but my cousin let me borrow some of her costumes and it was in the mix. The night absolutely FLEW by and it was amazing—I wish I would have gone earlier in my college career!
Friday night and Saturday night I knew a few different people that were throwing parties, so my friends and I dropped in over there. For these nights, I was an Oktober Fest waitress and a 50’s housewife which were both super fun.
I don’t know what my future Halloweens will have in store, but this one will definitely be one of those to go down in history as one of my best. Remember, to always be safe on Halloween and travel in groups. Happy Halloween!
