...I was NOT a fan of Halloween?

This is my confession: Scary things scare me.

Ever since I was little I just haven't liked Halloween. In Elementary school I was the kid that was so terrified that during the time while the whole school would line up for a costume parade around the halls- I would hide in the office. I can't help that I never grew out of that stage.

My costumes usually consisted of something non-scary- a Ballerina, a Princess, Caroline Ingalls (don't judge me- You all KNOW you watched "Little House on the Prarie" and are jealous you didn't think of it.), Miss America, an Ewok (not just one- but TWO of us. My friend and I both were Ewoks), and maybe a pumpkin was thrown in there. I didn't like scary costumes... Especially with lots of makeup or masks.

At sleepovers when the scary stories started coming out... Eyes and Ears were covered... or I would call my mom to come get me. There are still a very few that I've accidently heard over the years--- and I still cringe when I hear even the names or parts of them... I won't even talk about scary movies. Don't believe anyone when they say "It's really not that scary... You'll be fine." Liars. I've learned to do like drugs and "Just Say NO!"

Let's just say... If Halloween requested to be my friend on Facebook, I would ignore it.... and move on to better holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I move that weekends be extended.

Current conditions demand more time to do things that need to be done at home. Schools should be closed, work should be halted, and temperatures should stay at 75 degrees. I support a world where sleeping past 6 am one more day is the norm and where kids can play outside until 10 at night because there's no school tomorrow! One more day for playing, one more day for sleeping... and if you so choose- one more day to clean and do homework! This extended weekend will heal the world of all tired yawns caused by early mornings, late evenings, and too much work.

I want a better tomorrow by making it still the weekend today!

All in favor?

...School was overrated?

School is overrated sometimes.

Especially 7:30 am classes. (Confession: I didn't go to class this morning.)

The Good News: Only 9 more weeks.

The Other Good News: Next Friday is Fall Break.
(the bad news: fall break is only one day.)

I think I want to take a trip to Disneyland. Who's in?
