This is Halloween (in medical school)
So, Happy Halloween! 🙂
There’s a part of me that wonders which person at the Henson Workshop thought ‘man unable to see his own hands because he is operating a puppet does a chainsaw gag’ was a great idea, but that might be just be me 😉
But yes, digressions aside, it’s Halloween, a holiday of dressing up and going up to strangers homes to ask them for their candy.
It’s Halloween, and although there are parties abundantly available, my plans are…
Yes, I’m studying through this Halloween, as my first exam of phase 3 is this coming Friday 😦 This isn’t the biggest disappointment for me though; personally I’m not huge on Halloween parties, and as I’m living in a basement apartment my door isn’t the front of the house door, so I’m not on shelling out duty, which is too bad as that is something I actually do enjoy 🙂 I also really used to love taking my little sister out trick or treating – and of course trick or treating myself as a kid – but given that my sister is in another province and that I can’t shell out, Halloween isn’t the biggest thing for me. I did have some fun Wednesday, attending a class hosted Halloween trivia night where we dressed up – and that my team totally won – and given my love of Harry Potter and my newly dyed light ash blonde hair – love it – there was only one thing I could really dress up as.
I was Draco – or fem!Draco is suppose – Malfoy, because although I’m a Pottermore sorted Ravenclaw, everyone likes to be a little cunning and
evil ambitious 😉 It isn’t the most ambitious costume ever, and I certainly have had a few, like Poe the Telletubby and B2 from Bananas in Pyjamas when I was a kid, Bill Gates’ Visa to the Statue of Liberty, and Tardis that had a door that opened and inside was a silk screened image of the inside of the Tardis – still really proud of that 🙂 – but I felt it suited the mood – a low key – geeky, because that’s a must – costume for a low key Halloween. Would I be having more Halloween fun if I didn’t have to study? Of course, but at the end of the day I had some fun, and although there are better things, there are also certainly so many more worse things than a night in a nice warm apartment, studying amongst my Halloween decorations.
Also that whole bowl of candy from above?
I guess it really is a Happy Halloween indeed! 😉
