Happy Halloween! This post is very un-halloweeny, unless you count the pumpkins. I'm not sure what I'm doing for halloween tonight. I haven't bought any candy for trick or treaters yet, and I might go to a show tonight, not sure. I feel like last weekend was really halloween party central. I'm not big into spending money on a halloween costume, especially since my closet is full of quasi-costumey garments. I guess that's a perk of having sort of quirky, vintage style. Are you guys pulling any costumes out of your closet? I didn't take any photos of my costumes this year (bad blogger?), but sort of got some snippits on instagram.
On Saturday I was planning on going to a friend's Halloween party, but I got kidnapped and taken to a hip hop show downtown, which actually turned out to be completely awesome. I realized that I'd never been to an actual show in Tacoma... meaning not a coffee shop show. I'd love to try and be a better Tacoman. It's so easy for me to just be an ultra introvert and live my life from the comfort of my tiny house, but I remember how much I fell in love with Spokane after emerging from the "pinecone curtain," as they called it, of the comfort zone of my college campus. Even though not many people seem to think much of Spokane, I really loved its unique vibe and culture that it had and there were so many wonderful local businesses, shops, bars, and restaurants. Sometimes I think I'm drawn to the underdog cities. I read an article yesterday in the Seattle Weekly that was so incredibly condescending to Tacoma and it really made me salty. Even though I still feel like a Tacoma newb, I feel a kinship with this town and its amazing people and businesses. I think one of my 26 before 27 goals will be to really become a better citizen of this city.
