October’s Coming to An End

The month of October has always been one of my favorite months, and for many reasons that include, but aren’t limited to: Brick City Homecoming, football season, the World Series (anyone see that crazy Game 3 ending by the way?!?), my celebration of becoming a year older, and lastly of all, Halloween!

The other night I went to a local haunted house near the campus and had a blast. I have to confess something about why I like going to haunted houses. I didn’t go to get scared silly, I went because I get a kick out of going in a group and watching other’s reactions as they freak out. Every time I go to a haunted house, there are always a few people in the group who are constantly tugging and cowering behind objects or others. Don’t get me wrong, I do get scared sometimes (fog, strobe lights, and clowns popping out are a bad, bad combination) but it takes a real effort for that to happen!

One of the greatest things about Rochester is that even though the weather’s slowly getting colder as the days pass by, the pool at RIT is always open! And it’s indoors! I’ve been trying to hit up the pool more often, mainly because of the giant hot tub that holds up to 25 people! I need a place to rest my body as sometimes all that biking I do around campus catches up to me and I need a place to rest my calves. Luckily, that’s where the hot tub/pool comes in! The Student Life Center here is a must-see for everyone who comes to visit as there’s always an event happening here like intramural sports leagues or dodgeball!

Well I think that’s all I have to say about the last couple of weeks. Have you decided what you’ll be for Halloween yet? Halloween’s around the corner so I got to think of a costume (and make sure it fits the weather here too!) plus do some studying for my midterms (eww). You stay warm, fellow reader in (insert your city name here)!
