EAST CAMPUS—Halloween season is approaching and no one is more excited than current freshman James Young, who is ready to dress up and forget his own crushing self-hatred.
“Every day I have to wake up and accept that this is who I am and there’s nothing I can do to change it. But not Halloween,” Young explained. “On the 31st of October, I can be whoever I want, and you better believe I’m not going to be myself.”
“On the outside? Maybe a cat, a scarecrow, or batman,” Young continued. “On the inside? Still pathetic, miserable me. I can’t wait.”
After Halloween, Young will be looking forward to late October next year when he can once more hide his all-consuming self-pity behind a quickly thrown together costume.
