How to Carve Anything BUT a Pumpkin

How to Carve Anything BUT a Pumpkin

For God knows what reason, pumpkins have been Halloween’s favorite piece for centuries. Don’t get me wrong, pumpkins make some terrifying decorations; however, if you’re looking for a spookier scare, here are some ideas.


Can you guess what that is? You guessed wrong. It’s a watermelon! Believe it or not, the pink fruit inside the watermelon makes for freaky-flesh. If you’ve got major knife skills, search up “watermelon carving” on Google for endless ideas.


2. The soap bar will probably be the best prank of the year. Take your roommate’s soap bar (or preferably your own) and carve away! Believe me, showering with this soap bar will be an experience of a lifetime. 



Last but not least, the pineapple beats the pumpkin any day. Not only will you get to have tons of fresh pineapple, the pineapple has crazy green hair and skin that gives it so much more personality than the classic pumpkin. 



Go carve those creations!

As a senior undergraduate, I seek out all opportunities that expand my horizons, with the aim of developing professionally and deepening my vision of how I can positively impact the world around me. While most of my career aims revolve around healthcare and medicine, I enjoy producing content that is informative, engaging, and motivating.  In the past few years, I have immersed myself in the health field through working at a private surgical clinic, refining my skills as a research assistant in both wet-lab and clinical settings, shadowing surgeons in a hospital abroad, serving different communities with health-oriented nonprofits, and currently, exploring the pharmaceutical industry through an internship in clinical operations.  Career goals aside, I place my whole mind and soul in everything that I pursue whether that be interacting with patients in hospice, consistently improving in fitness PR’s, tutoring children in piano, or engaging my creativity through the arts. Given all the individuals that I have yet to learn from and all the opportunities that I have yet to encounter in this journey, I recognize that I have much room and capacity for growth. Her Campus is a platform that challenges me to consistently engage with my community and to simultaneously cultivate self-expression.
