In the past few months, I have seen some of my WP buddies create some blog posts like “Microblog Monday” or “This Moment” on Friday’s where one picture of your favorite moment gets broadcast on the blogosphere. I’ve decided, to keep myself motivated to write a little more often, and also to give my friends (that would be you guys!) a little more of an idea of the type of person I am, I would create a new installment (thanks to Instagram) called “Throwback Thursday”, where I will take the time machine of my mind, back to some earlier date and time, and share with you a little bit more about what makes me me! This week…Halloween!
Ever since I was really young, Halloween has been my favorite holiday. Christmas, who cares! NYE, I’m going to bed! But glorious Halloween has always been the day of the year that I look forward to the most (I’ve got a running countdown!).
I’ve always been a theater geek, seeing many Broadway shows, and performing in all of my school musicals (with the exception of Senior year of HS because I was failing out and my parents wouldn’t let me until I got my grades up, which never really happened!). I LOVE being in character! I love pretending to be someone that I’m not, and when I have a costume on, it makes for a really good time. I NEVER break character, and by never I mean, that from the second the costume comes on until it comes off, I AM that person. I can do accents like you wouldn’t believe. I can mimic people and imitate celebrities. And I can do a hella amazing impression of my mom, which she simultaneously hates and cracks up at every time! I love to act and make people laugh, and this fantastic holiday allows me to do that. Below are a few pictures (and brief descriptions of my behavior) of the past handful of Halloweens.
I must admit, although I love Halloween, I have yet to watch a single scary movie in it’s entirety (never watched a single Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, or Chucky film), and HATE having to go to scary attractions, even though I am usually the one that makes the plans and encourages people to go. Anything for a good laugh!
