It is a fact that college students’ apartments are never cleaner than they are the night before a big exam. It’s pretty sad when scrubbing the toilet sounds like more fun than cracking a book, but it’s so true, and so not exclusive to college students. I shouldn’t even be here writing this right now, but I’ve got a nearly 1,000 page software manual sitting next to me that I’m meant to be studying for a certification I have to do for work that I can’t even bear to look at. My apartment actually could’ve used a good scrub, but instead of vacuuming and mopping I opted for more fun procrastination activities and did a bit of shopping, made a huge batch of sweet potato soup and topped up my tan at the beach this afternoon. As I wrote that last sentence I actually started feeling a bit guilty. Should I study? Nah, I’ll just put a pillow over the book so I can’t see it. Problem solved.

I used to think that Halloween was just a holiday for kids. Dress up, walk around the neighborhood with your parents, get a pillowcase full of candy and you’re happy. I didn’t really think there was much to it for adults. Boy was I wrong! Halloween just might even be more fun now than it was when I was five years old and was too afraid to go back for the shoe I’d lost as I ran in terror from a man who’d maliciously dressed himself up to look like a dummy and then made a grab for me as I reached innocently for a piece of candy from the bowl in his lap. In fact, yeah…it’s definitely more fun. Besides, adults can eat whatever candy we want without being told we’ll get a stomachache, stay up as late as we want AND we can drink alcohol. Suck on that little children.
