How to Prepare for Talloween This Year

Every year, Tallahassee does the same exact thing for Halloween. We basically dedicate an entire week to blacking out in costumes that we trade off with our friends each night, skipping class, and forgetting about all of our responsibilities. There's really nothing like it. So as expected, this year will go something like that. Like always, there will be a fraternity crush or two. To make sure you're at least slightly prepared, here are a few tips.

Accept that you're not going to class on Wednesday. We know it, you know it, and your professors definitely know it. Don't even bother setting your alarm and facing your hangover any earlier than you have to. You’ll wake up, lay in bed in pain and dilemma for ten minutes and then decide to go back to doing exactly what you were just doing. It’s not worth it. Get your outfits together. Paint the half-skeleton on your face, throw on some cat ears, cover yourself in glitter and call it an alien. You can never be too basic on Halloween in Tallahassee. When you're drunk in the bathroom at Standard I'm sure you'll become best friends with every girl in there that's also dressed as Harley Quinn. If you're in a sorority, you practically have unlimited options for Halloween costumes. You can wear old big/little outfits, waltz outfits, past Halloween outfits: you name it and at least five of your sisters definitely have it.

Get your San Holo ticket. What better way to start Talloween than with a basic EDM show? You probably don't know who he is but pull up his SoundCloud before Thursday night and maybe you'll be able to sing along to "We Rise" like everyone else. At least pretend that you're not a poser. And after all, who doesn't want an excuse to go to Bajas on a Thursday night? Truthfully, if you know what's good for you, you may just want to get far away from Tallahassee this weekend. You could travel to New Orleans for Voodoo Fest and see headliners like Kendrick Lamar, The Killers, and DJ Snake. If you're looking for something a little closer, Suwannee Hulaween music festival is taking place in Live Oak, FL. Bassnectar, Claude Vonstroke, and many others are scheduled to perform that weekend. Wynwood Fear Factory in Miami is another option you can look into. Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, Halloween only comes once a year so make the most of it. Maybe you just want to sit at home and eat candy while watching scary movies all weekend. In that case, no one will feel sorry for you but yourself!
