But nonetheless, I am thoroughly enjoying school particularly because I finally feel as if I'm getting used to the whole university groove without having to make first year mistakes. But perhaps I'm talking too soon. I don't really want to jinx anything. But definitely, I feel like I'm actually accomplishing things that will help me get to my long-term goal: becoming a journalist.
Wow, that sounds really corny. Anyway...let me tell you about my Halloween.
I originally wanted to go as a Sim character from the game The Sims. It's a cheap and low-budget costume but it did work quite well.
However, no one knew what I was...so I decided to make more of an effort and go the typical route of being a pirate. But changing costume ideas meant I had to spend more money on my costume. Not wanting to spend more than five dollars, I headed to the dollar store to buy a head piece and make-up. That cost a total of $2.26. What a big spender I am. As for the rest of the costume, I just wore clothes I had in my closet.
The end result:

And then it was party time!! Headed over to my friend's apartment and ate pasta and drank some wine. So very classy... And if you're all wondering why I decided to pose with a wine bottle, it was because I didn't have a proper pirate prop (alliteration hehe). Therefore, I pretended to be an alcoholic pirate. Is this even appropriate to post on this blog? I really don't know. Don't worry I was not crazy at all.
Just normal. :)
