So we are just a little over a week away from my LEAST favorite holiday…. Actually, honestly, these days, it really doesn’t matter because my focus has changed from going out and raging in a skanky costume, to handing out candy or taking our nieces and nephews out to trick or treat…. BUT, there is still a little part of me that wants to be able to get all skankafied and go to a party and feel hot… because GUESS WHAT. I have NEVER been able to do that. Ever.. and that, my friends, is why I freaking HATE THIS STUPID HOLIDAY.
Ok high school, wasn’t that bad, you dressed up in semi-skanky clothes… (depending on what crowd you were in hahaha), but then you get to college, and I swear, Halloween was the one holiday every dude in the world looked forward to… Why? Oh I don’t know why, maybe because girls made even the WORST costumes into something super awesome and scandalous! I mean MORE power to you if you could pull it off – but when the fully clothed “cute hippo” walks in with a grey hoodie and sweat pants, and she’s sitting next to a HOT GUITAR?????, that just doesn’t work people… doesn’t work. This pressure every year, being the big, chubby girl… ugh that was the worst feeling in the world… and even when you get OUT of college – it’s all about parties in your new cities where you’ve moved to after college and you and your girlfriends start planning in like MAY for your halloween costumes… I remember one year me and my two friends were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but sexy of course…. and oh my god, they looked great, I looked like shit. HAHAHAHA….. It’s just an ugly cycle for me — this holiday makes me want to crawl into a hole and pretend I am being the groundhog from groundhogs day for Halloween! That way I can just hide, and i don’t have to talk to anyone. hahaha… In fact, if I’m remembering this the right way, that halloween that we were TMNT (and we weren’t even that skanky) I left the bar early because I just felt soooooo uncomfortable looking like crap, with all these other amazingly hot girls around me, ugh it just sucked. SUCKED.
