Halloween Festivities

Posted by Abby at 7:58 PM 0 comments
Last week was Halloween and it was the first time I wouldn't be spending it with my family and friends from back in Miami.  Despite that, I ended up having a lot of fun!  After (literally) hours of contemplating what to dress up as, I decided I would go as a Sim.  It's the perfect combination of creativity and laziness.  The first party I went to was actually like three weeks before Halloween, which made my roommate and I stand out quite a bit as we walked across campus looking like this:
(She was a loofah).

I ended up having so much fun that night.  It was actually the first party I went to at college.  Not many people dressed up, though, since the party was so early in October, but everyone there seemed to like our costumes a lot.

On the night before Halloween, I ended up going to my first ever frat party which was... a little crazy, to say the least.  I felt like I was in some teen comedy or something; there was a pole in the middle of the living room, there was a guy dressed as a penis... the whole thing was just a bit crazy.  I really wasn't loving it when I first go there, but after a while I started to have a better time. 

Oh, and I dressed up as a hippie instead of a sim.

We also went to a haunted house in the basement of one of the dorms that was themed as a twisted, zombie mental hospital thing.  Needless to say, I was screaming for basically the whole time.  

Here we have me freaking out before the haunted house, and my friends acting cool and normal.

And finally, on Halloween, I went to a party with some kids I know from a club I'm in.  It was a great night spent with great people.  I dressed as a Sim again even though some of the people already saw me as that.  Whatever, I spent like an hour making that damn green diamond so I for sure was going to wear it on Halloween.




There was definitely no lack of celebrating Halloween this year; three parties, a haunted house, AND marathoning halloween movies.  I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas now.  I cannot wait for pumpkin pie, and to see my parents and sister, and be back home.  

Let me know  in the comments what you dressed up as or what you did on Halloween!!

Listicle of Not Feeling Too Great

Posted by Abby at 4:23 PM 2 comments
I just decided to make a list of how I've been feeling and what I've been thinking about recently.

1. My parents drove up to visit me at my college this past weekend, which was awesome.  I have been so homesick for the past few weeks, it was nice to see them after a couple months of being away at school.  I am still super homesick, though.  I miss driving my car.  I miss my bedroom.  I miss my parents's cooking.  I miss my cat.  I miss the lights hanging in my room.  I miss everything.  Getting to see my parents helped for the weekend, but now that they've left, I'm just sad again.  I cannot wait to go home for Christmas.  

2. Since I don't really know that many people at college yet (even though I kind of expected to have a group of friends after being here for over two months) I'm always hanging out with the same three or four people.  Sadly, as I've been seeing so much of them recently, I've become a bit annoyed with them.  I don't know if it's just me with this issue or not, but if I see someone too often they start to bother me.  If I sound like a bad person or a bad friend, I don't mean to.  I stay friendly when I'm with them, but I could really go for a new crowd of people.  The situation kind of sucks.

3. The new people that I'm meeting are really nice, I'm just not very close with them.  All of them seem to have their lives so put together, though.  They know what they want to do, they've had super awesome internships in New York already, they just seem to know how everything works.  I know I will (hopefully) get to that point someday, with experience and all that, but for now I just feel very intimidated.

4. I've recently become very concerned with my weight, which has never really been an issue for me before.  I've always felt that I was slightly overweight, but just this past week I have been feeling horrible.  It was basically all that I could think about, and I had convinced myself that I have gained about 15 pounds, which I hadn't.  I'm feeling better now, but still not exactly happy with the way I look.

5. I have been feeling overwhelmingly bored and lonely recently.  I feel as though I have no close friends, and all my old friends have completely replaced me.  Again, it sucks.  I just want to be in the opposite of where I am.  But, when I think about being anywhere else, I feel like I would be unhappy there, too.  I'm not sure if that makes sense, but basically I just feel like I can't be happy right now.

This post may make it seem like I'm a super sad person, but I don't think I am.  When I'm with people, I usually end up laughing and talking normally.  It's just when I'm alone, I start to feel a little down.
