The one thing I miss from my childhood is dressing up and heading out with my friends to score candy on Halloween. I would spend weeks coming up with the perfect costume. Only something handmade and unique would do, so creativity was a must. Of course, being a natural redhead, I have donned Jessica Rabbit, Annie and the obligatory Pippi Longstocking outfit, but the majority of my repertoire leaned toward the macabre. Thankfully, The Walking Dead has provided me with an excuse to dress up once again, but it’s not as easy to get people to give me candy. I’m usually met with strange stares or told that I’m a bit too old to be trick-or-treating anymore. Maybe it would work better if I actually tagged along with my kids? Oh well, I guess I need to find something else to occupy my time tonight. If you’ll be staying home this evening, consider using this time to work on scholarships. I’ll even help you fill your goody bag by treating you to seven fun programs that require no special tricks to win.
