All Hallow’s Eve by Ceri Riley '16

You're never too old to trick-or-treat...

Happy (belated) Halloween! Although I guess it’s November now but let’s ignore that.

This is gonna be a quick post mainly because I half-promised pictures of my friends and I being all dorky and appreciative of Doctor Who, and I still have some other work to finish before sleeping. For the holiday, the MacGregor GRTs–Graduate students who are essentially MIT’s equivalent of Residential Advisors–housemasters, and associate housemasters handed out treats to anyone who stopped by their rooms/apartments between 9-10pm. There were fruit roll-ups, mud cups, cookies shaped like fingers, chocolate covered strawberries, and, of course, mini variety packs of candy. And my friends and I took this opportunity to galavant around our dorm dressed up as a motley crew of 7 characters from Doctor Who… plus a Spaceman Spiff, Finn from Adventure Time, a gypsy/Peruvian, and a MIT student (ooh, scary). Our group was very all-inclusive.

Anyway, for anyone who is interested, here are some candid shots and group photos of us looking both awesome and silly in front of a TARDIS poster imported from Ukraine (or some other exotic locale that has merchants on Photocreds to Tobi R. ’16 aka our River Song :)

(But actually I have a half-unfinished PSET due at 11:45am tomorrow and should probably go without rambling too much. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday or will be able to take a break this weekend to watch scary movies or dress up for the heck of it or binge eat candy or healthy alternatives like apples and such. Very spoopy, much creppy.)
