Halloween in College: Expectations vs. Reality

0
0

Crisp weather, innovative costume ideas, impressive decorations, and amazing parties - Halloween sure is an unforgettable part of the college experience. After being in school for a few months, it's the first major holiday that rolls around, so you're majorly pumped to get dressed up and have a great time! But sometimes that anticipation doesn't quite translate into real life.

Expectation

You have a master plan for an intricate costume that is totally going to grab everyone’s attention at that big party you’re invited to. You bookmarked all of the websites that you're going to buy the costume components from, and you have a full picture in your mind of what you want to look like.

Reality

It's the day before Halloween and your costume (or lack thereof) is a massive failure. You ran out of funds or forgot about it entirely, and now you have to find something to wear in less than 24 hours.

 

Expectation

You’re going to carve a pumpkin into a jack-o’-lantern that will impress your floormates. It'll be the perfect shape, and every last detail will be intricately sculpted.

Reality

Midway through, you drop your pumpkin, and now it's just a mushy, hot mess. Plus, you manage to cut your hand while carving. Pumpkin pie, anyone?

 

Expectation

You buy a bag of candy with the intention of giving most of it out to your friends. It'll be a little gift for all of your besties. You'll keep a few of the mini chocolate bars to yourself so you can snack on them over the next couple of days. 

Reality

You end up eating the whole thing yourself in one sitting. 

 

Expectation

You’re going to nail that makeup tutorial you found on YouTube that will make your costume look extra amazing. You have the Naked Palette the vlogger used in the video, so how can you go wrong?

Reality

It turns out a bit differently than it looks in the video. And by that, your friends think you’ve dressed up as a diseased zombie who's just come back from the dead. 

 

Expectation

The temperature will be mild, so all you’ll need is a light sweater and you’re golden. It's October; how cool could it get? Just a light breeze.

Reality

By nightfall, it will feel like mid-December and you’ll deeply regret not wearing long pants. 

 

Expectation

You came up with a really creative costume idea that people are going to die over. Your roommates' jaws will drop and your crush will take notice. No one you know has ever done this costume before, and it will therefore be a winner in everyone's eyes.

Reality

No one seems to be able to figure out what you are. Clearly there was a reason why no one had ever attempted the costume before.

 

Expectation

You've been invited to five costume parties and there isn't enough time to go to all of them. You're going to have to start telling some people you can't make it.Reality

You actually have no plans at all, so it looks like it's just going to be you, some candy and ABC Family's 13 Nights of Halloween. Can you say, party for one?
