i have a lot of feelings about the fact that i just celebrated my last halloween at georgetown. the weekend itself was great, the weather was amazing, but there were moments when i realized that this is it. i remember my freshman year halloween like it was yesterday, and now i’m here in my final year and i have so many fixed feelings about it. in the past three years i’ve grown so much, learned so much about myself, and dealt with so much, and i feel more “me” than i think i ever have before. as i get closer to graduation i definitely will have more introspective posts on here, but for now i’m going to keep it light. back to halloween… i went through three costumes last weekend and i loved all of them. the first was a “the lost boys” inspired punk vampire, so imagine lots of fake blood and very realistic fangs and spikes. the other night i went as a sons of anarchy character and for trick-or-treating on embassy row i rocked my space jam costume. i tried to go out with a bang (and managed to scare a few people), and every halloween serves to remind me how much i love the holiday. although i don’t want to rush ahead, it’s time to prep for thanksgiving, so recipe research here i come.
go on buzzfeed during the fall and you’ll find a countless amount of articles talking about what it means to be “basic.” apparently liking the fall makes you a basic person… well if that’s the case then screw it, i’m basic. in all honesty though, how does enjoying the leaves changing or wearing sweaters make you this way? if it’s cold, i’m going to wear a sweater, like any normal person would. but seriously, fall and winter are my two favorite times of the year, no shame in admitting it… once i can start baking apple pies or pumpkin cinnamon rolls, i’m in my own version of heaven. throw in a little frank sinatra or hozier to this cooking scenario, and i’m good to go. i’ve already decorated with candy corn (pictures to come), the boot breaking-in process is currently underway (painful, so painful), and both abc family and trader joe’s will be seeing a lot of me. you’re probably reading this and thinking how basic i am. all i have to say to that is “k, cool.” enjoy my fall to do list and a picture of an amazing bonfire, haters.
