The Perks of All Hallows' Eve

        I love Halloween.         
I feel more bold when I'm dressed in a costume, because I'd be fitting in for once, even if it's only for a single event. At least there's one thing that I can do with other people while actually enjoying it, since I love costumes and cosplay... and Halloween gives me an excuse to go all out. This is one of the few instances where I feel like I'm at an equal level with everyone else.

But alas, this year I was as shy as ever, in spite of my elaborate homemade costume. I was Dovahkiin—aka Dragonborn—a fierce Nordic warrior from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I thought I'd be more social and try to talk to people (other than the two friends I came with), but I've been more of a recluse this semester in general.
At least the haunted house was entertaining, and like always, I just waltzed through it unphased, since I am not easily startled or intimidated.
