Daily Commuter: Horrors, ghouls, fun activities
It’s the week I’ve been waiting for. Halloween is finally here. I’ve been readily prepping and coming up with costume ideas, getting all the proper supplies and working my schedules to fit with plans being made. I hear the excitement from everyone just from walking around campus. We’ve all obviously been looking forward to this.
This is the first time in a few years that I’ve been excited for Halloween, too. I’m sure some of you can relate in going through that phase where you decide you’re too old to go trick-or-treating and even if you did, you would get judgmental looks from those giving out candy. But it seems that being in college creates a whole new atmosphere of excitement.
Maybe it’s the ability for more creative freedom being away from parental supervision or knowing that you’re going to have a great time out with friends, but whatever it is, it’s creating quite a buzz.
A consensus that I’ve found is that pretty much everybody has backup costumes. With Halloween falling on a Thursday, that leaves room for more nights to go out, of which people are taking advantage. So go ahead and be something different every night, you have the chance to get really creative.
Towson is doing a lot to get involved in Halloween, too. They’ve been having events that have been going on since last week to get people out and in the spirit of the holiday.
My personal favorite was Glentastrophe. That might have had something to do with my being in it. I highly recommend taking any opportunity you receive to dress up in a costume with dramatic makeup and scream at strangers. It’s extremely therapeutic, especially around midterm time.
So whatever you end up doing, just have fun and use this time to blow off some steam.
We’re over halfway through the semester and soon enough it’ll be time for finals, so enjoy this while you can.
