Today is my second Halloween on campus and it is a fun day to be around. You never know who you might run into. As I was sitting here starting to write this post in the admissions office Death came walking through the front door, past my desk and into the halls. I've also encountered an overweight plumber, Princess Fiona, Joe Dirt and the bearded lady today. Along with the costumes on campus, it is midterms week again and Hurricane Sandy brought in some winter-like weather for the last few days. The last few nights have dropped into the thirties, making sleep easier to enjoy at night, though it does make it a little harder to get up early in the morning to head for the gym. However, campus is in full fall colors and the holidays are about to get under way which means more time with my family and less time spent in school which is always a good thing.
