Happy Halloween!

An abandoned house in Ohio. More spooky, abandoned places here

Well, being back at school this week has kind of hit hard. I didn't get much work done over fall break (can you blame me?) which meant Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night were kind of killers--essays, applications and pages and pages of reading. Well, it's over now--just in time to catch the Halloween spirit that's been going around campus.

Tuesday night, my residential college threw its (biennial?) haunted house. I found it quite fantastic because I wasn't scared at all and it included remix versions of Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus songs. The Master of the college went around handing us candy, so that made the 45 minute wait much better!

Today the Yale Symphony Orchestra is performing its midnight Halloween Show. Tickets sold out online in minutes, so I will probably spend that hour watching Goosebumps on Netflix (90s children's horror--classic) and pretending to do work.

Since I won't be seeing the Halloween Show (a Yale tradition!) and I'm not really one for costumes anymore, I thought I'd get into the Halloween spirit in some different ways. Enjoy!

Kittens in witch hats! Do you think Doc and Mack would go for some hat accessorizing? We used to have reindeer ears, and I always tried to put them on Harry, but he was never a big fan...

Witchcraft, assassins and ghost soldiers. Check out the ten most haunted castles. 

The San Diego State baseball team has an annual Halloween game-- everyone plays in their costumes!

Now this is a Halloween party! (I really want to try those gummy brains!)

I didn't have time to carve a pumpkin this year--maybe next October. I really want to do a Kappa-themed one. 

These Halloween pretzel sticks are so festive...and easy to make!

I'm loving these crop tops from Urban. here and here.

Halloween is as good a time as any to learn to read Tarot...maybe that's what I'll do.

Have a very happy and safe Halloween! See you in November.
