The 2011 Halloween season flew by really fast... I can't believe that October is already over. Only a month and two-ish weeks until the semester is over. Crazy? I think so. Just when I think life can't move any faster...
Anyway, the holiday was an awesome time. Last Friday night AAT had their Halloween/gender bender Cabaret Night, "CaBOOret". It was such a successful event. I dressed up as a pirate (original, I know) and ran concessions with the Yin to my Yang, Connor Padilla. The decorations were superb, the talent was amazing, and the company was nothing short of wonderful. The event was well-attended, and it was another reaffirmation of how much I love this department and the people who are in it.
After cabaret night I ventured over to the Union for a multi-stake Halloween dance. After several minutes of searching for a familiar face (all the while feeling like a loser), I finally ran into my folk dance friends. It was good to see them all there. The dance was a flop, so Karina Spencer and I grabbed a pizza and went to her house for some good-quality girl time. She introduced me to the TV show "The Sing Off" and now I'm completely and totally obsessed. We watched episodes of the show until two in the morning! haha. I was really needing a friend that night, and I'm glad Karina and I got to get to know each other a little bit better. She's a fantastic girl, and I hope we can become great friends!
Saturday night I went to the Folk Dance Halloween Social! I dressed up in my pirate costume and drove to Kaysville with Alex Sorenson for the party. We all had a blast! It was my sugar day (the only one until Thanksgiving) and so I ate pumpkin cheesecake, candy corn, candy pumpkins, sugar cookies, and Jack Shapiro and I even went to Dylan's for some pumpkin shakes. They were delicious! I had a blast with the team. We played a variety of group games, ate some delicious food, and spent time getting to know each other better.
Today was nice too. The school day wasn't different from any other day, except that I wore orange and black and my Frankenstein earrings. I also had an amazing performance experience with Lindsea Garside in Acting for Musical Theatre. I cannot adequately explain how much I enjoy that class.
Then, tonight Jack Shapiro and I went and saw Sleepy Hollow. It was a fun experience to watch the other cast perform the show, and it was such a festive activity for Hallows Eve. :) I'm glad Jack came with me to see it, we had a fun time visiting with each other and watching the show. (And indulging in some sugar-free candy, too.)
Then when I got home, I watched the newest episode of the Vampire Diaries. I still can't believe my roommates last year got me addicted to this silly show. ;) Gotta love some hot boys and some drama! haha. It's an entertaining show, that's for sure. And it was the perfect ending to a spooky Halloween!
Hope everyone else enjoyed their holiday festivities :)
