My name is Desiree Johnson; I am a senior at UTSA with an English major concentrating in professional writing. I just recently turned 21, so this is a great way to kicko my senior year, and writing for Study Breaks has just been one dream I plan to accomplish this year. I am president of my sorority, Kappa Delta Chi, and it’s a large part of who I am as a person and how I’ve grown into strong, independent, ambitious young women, who has big dreams for herself in the world. You can usually nd me on campus, it’s is my rst home whether with my sisters, or working at the Career Center promoting becoming a better professional as a student. Outside of school I am very outgoing, I love to hang out, have a good time, read and write of course, but I love to go out on the town as well, which I plan a lot of being 21 now! I know this will be a great year for everyone, especially with the football team now representing UTSA! Best Wishes, and if you see me around, feel free to say hello.
Campus Ambassador, Desiree Johnson

Ryan Elliott Campus Ambassador

Jasmine, I need help with a Halloween costume idea! What ideas do you have? -Vanessa Jones

Desiree, What song always makes you happy when you heart it? -Rochelle Ramclam

Jennifer, how slutty is TOO slutty for a Halloween costume? -Jessica Berke

Ryan, What’s a good way to meet new people on campus? - Greg Penfield

Halloween costumes can be just as stressful as nals. Skip the cliche looks, (you know what I’m talking about– the Playboy bunny, the cheetah, the Superwoman), and go for something creative. I’ve made my costumes every year, and they have been successful, especially group costumes! Although people say “it’s too soon!” for certain costumes, don’t listen. It’s never too soon to start partying and getting creative.

I have a really diverse, eclectic taste in music that ranges from classical to country. One of the songs that I always get a feel good, mood to whenever I hear it, but it’s rare is Shalimar’s ‘Night to Remember’. is is an old school classic I grew up listening to with my dad, and I will snap my ngers, bob my head, and laugh just thinking about my dad and his attempts to dance to this.

ough Halloween is a time to let loose (please don’t take that term too literally), there is still a way to be sexy and NOT over the top slutty. A little cleavage there and a little leg there is all you need. Remember, guys like to have room for imagination.

My advice for the longest time has been getting involved. e more stu you do around campus the more people you meet, which opens A LOT of doors. Half the people I know at school were complete strangers until I just got the initiative to walk up and introduce myself.

TAYLOR SWIFT
Since emerging onto the music scene in 2006, Taylor Swift has taken the music world by storm with her blend of country/pop music. Swift was brought into the spotlight with her first single “Tim McGraw” which became a top hit on the country charts. This would be the first of many chart topping singles that would land her several country music awards and a Grammy nomination. Her charismatic personality and heartfelt lyrics make her relatable to her fans of all ages that spurns from her amazing ability to write. Her latest album ‘Speak Now’ has catapulted her to stardom and made her a household name across the world.

ROADRUNNERS VS. SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13TH (CONVOCATION CENTER)

SPOTLIGHT
WHAT A WAY TO START!
The Roadrunner football program is off and running, and started things off with a huge 31-3 demolishing of Northeastern State. In our August interview, Coach Larry Coker said that he was looking forward to “a victory, and a great crowd watching an exciting football team.” Well, Coker was three for three there, getting the win, and having Roadrunner fans watch a very exciting offensive explosion. The explosion was led by QB Eric Soza (see inset, right), who threw for 237 yards and 2 TDs and ran for another 102 with another score. Also very important is Soza did not throw a single interception. The game set the NCAA record for attendance for a start-up program. All in all, it was a heck of a way to kick off Roadrunner football.
RED RAIDER TAILGATIN’ Red Raider fans were treated to a beautiful opening Saturday against Texas Tech. Tailgates were in full swing in preparation for the eventual blowout of the Bobcats. It should be yet another exciting football season, especially with Texas A&M coming to Lubbock for perhaps the final time as a Big-12 opponent. Get out there and support your team! And a special thanks to Melissa Belyeu (see photo) for the photos!

WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Young Defenders on the Rise. The Roadrunner defense also played a heck of a game on September 3rd. Both the defense and special teams (photo, left) will play big roles in future Roadrunner victories. And the defense might be led by several true freshman. It could be a real treat to watch these guys blossom into big-time college football players. Keep an eye on CB Darrien Starling, who recorded 7 tackles and had a pass breakup in the Roadrunners opening win.

HOT PROMOTER
MORGAN CONNELL
ONE SPICY PROMOTER
Q: What is Fandemic?
Fandemic is a company that was started by San Antonio’s own Joe Zambrano to help promote music in all its forms. It is a music app that gives information on live music, books tickets, and has a search engine for any city and musical artist you’re looking for. For an artist it is a bene t because it’s an excellent promotional tool that caters speci cally to their fans. We host parties and promotional events at di erent bars, clubs, and venues promoting people to download the app.
Morgan Connell, 23 Hometown: San Antonio Major: Business

words:desiree johnson photos:jeff ramirez

Q: What are the benefits to being a promoter?

e money is really good, but I also get to network with so many di erent types of people. I got the opportunity to become familiar with my own city, the great hot spots to be at during the nighttime as well as traveling. We travel all over to the big music cities like Houston, Austin, and Los Angeles.

Q: What’s the funnest part about your job?

Meeting people is a de nite perk because I am very social and outgoing, and this is one of the few jobs that allow me to do so, and get paid for it.

Q: Do you consider yourself to be a good businesswoman?

Yes, I consider that to be a main characteristic of myself in daily life. Being a promoter has allowed me to get an outlook on starting a company from the ground up through Fandemic, promoting, marketing, and getting to see rsthand the amount of money it takes to keep a business going. I am always in a business mindset in my professional and personal life.

Q: Will you have a future in promotions?

I don’t know because as a business management major I feel the sky is the limit! I love doing sales, and am hoping to have an executive position someday. Any business’s future is determined how they market themselves, so in some form or another I’ll always be promoting.

Q: Do you meet a lot of hot guys?

Yes, I do. It’s my job to educate people on Fandemic and encourage them to download the app. I use business and sales to approach hot guys that interest me and I use that window to start a conversation that works both ways though!

ASAL TIETZE
Asal Tietze, 26 Hometown: Stamford, CT

Q: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what two items would

you bring?
at’s a hard question! I would want to take a picture of my family and probably a TV cause being on a deserted island sounds like it can get pretty boring.

Q: What is one habit you would like to change?
Being late. As much as I try I’m usually late to just about everything I do so much so that my friends and family lie to me about what time I really need to be somewhere.

Q: What is the meaning behind your bar’s name?
I would think it’s probably because the bar looks like an airplane hangar haha. A fun looking atmosphere to drink at.

Q: Why should people go to your bar instead of others?
Besides the fact that we have something di erent going on every night we have Sunday Funday in the backyard. It’s a great set up outside in the back where we have bikini contests, games, sand football, and a lot more one of the best being our GIANT TV to watch football outside while drinking a beer!

Q: What is unique about your bartending style?
I would have to say it’s my mouth. On top of making drinks I really like cracking jokes and messing with my customers. People know me for my trash talking and really seem to like it and so do I.

Q: What is the craziest thing you have seen at your bar?
Probably mud wrestling. e girls were actually wrestlers so they really went at each other and that was de nitely a fun one to watch. at and our giant slip and slide that was as long as the volleyball court.

Q: What person, past or present, would you like to drink a beer with?
at would have to be my little brother Collin. My family and I lost him ve months ago and I can’t imagine anything better than kicking back and having a beer with him.

Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
I’ve always wanted to own my own crazy kind of bar. I know that it’ll be hard but I’m up for that challenge.

Q: What is the best night to come in and why?
at really is hard to say because there’s always something happening at e Hangar. But Fridays are always cool because we have live rock, Sundays are awesome but we also have minute to win it Mondays, Trivia Tuesdays and the list goes on so it’s all about what you feel like doing.

In The Pink
ach October there are ambiguous and provocative Facebook statuses. ere are “Save the Boobies” shirts and bracelets. ere is pink – everywhere. October is breast cancer awareness month, but in the midst of these bright and sometimes shocking reminders, we still manage to forget what this means. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. is illness claims the lives of almost 40,000 women annually. Although accounting for only 1 percent of all newly diagnosed cases, nearly 2,000 men were diagnosed in 2010. ese numbers only scratch the surface of those a ected by the disease, discounting the families, friends and loved ones of each victim that su er alongside these women and men, nor do they include the thousands that have already fought to beat this disease – and the ones that did not. But ask a breast cancer patient or survivor about their experiences and you will rarely hear a response of a person looking for sympathy. e resilience shown through these struggles, the unsung heroes that have the grace and strength to simply carry on a daily routine while battling this disease exemplify strength and power. ey are our mothers, our teachers, our coworkers, our friends, and they are ghters. It was 12 years ago that I lost my mother to breast cancer. When

E

Study Breaks gives advice on protecting yourself from breast cancer, giving to the cause and staying “in the pink”.
diagnosed, she was given six months to live, but, always up to the challenge, she fought through seven years of treatments, including four rounds chemotherapy. Maybe the most remarkable thing was her refusal to let it affect her daily life. Growing up I was surrounded by her fellow patients and survivors that she met with on a weekly basis and never once did it occur to me that these men and women quietly dealt with unimaginable and almost constant pain – whether emotional or physical. And my mother’s story is not unique. I have never met a patient that showed anything but perfect poise and grace, or heard a story from someone in remission that detailed their pain. Breast cancer awareness month is not designed to draw attention to your own sexuality or the fact that your Facebook status indicates you could be pregnant. So while the inevitable shock campaigns designed to call attention to the issue at hand are going on this October, be sure to remember the roots of what this disease is and why we are taking the time to re ect on it. Use this month to celebrate the lives of those who are currently battling breast cancer and of those who have already defeated it. Use this month to remember those that have lost their lives. Most importantly, use this month to help in the ght against breast cancer.

Did you know?
It is a common misconception that breast cancer only occurs in older women. It affects young women and men, too. Although breast cancer in young people occurs less frequently, it is usually diagnosed much later and the strain is generally much more aggressive. Here are the facts:

Evidence shows that breast cancer before the age of 40 differs biologically from the cases faced by older women. African-American women under the age of 35 have two times as many occurrences of breast cancer than Caucasian women under 35.

Women ages 15 to 54 die more frequently from breast cancer than any other type of cancer.
Survival rates of women younger than 45 are up to five percent less than any other age group.

Every 14 minutes someone loses their life due to breast cancer.

Tickle Me Pink:
Designer Breast Cancer Products
OPI Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts Nail Laqueur Since 2007 OPI has used the months of September and October to release a limited edition designer shade. This year they are combining the new shatter-laqueur craze in their fight against breast cancer. opi.com, $7.50

How To Get Involved
Sometimes it’s hard to know exactly how to get involved with breast cancer awareness. College students especially can get tied down with other obligations and feel helpless against the cause. However there are many different ways to get involved with various ranges of time and monetary commitments. Race for the Cure The annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure holds races in most major cities across the country. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or would rather walk with your friends, this is a fun, interactive way to support the fight against breast cancer. The donations are as little as 35 dollars and if you have more time to commit you can join teams or raise sponsor money. Can’t make the Susan G. Komen race? Watch out for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in your area.

Bare Necessities In the spirit of “saving the boobies”, Bare Necessities is giving $0.25 of each bra purchase of their website in benefit of breast cancer research for the month of October. BareNecessities.com

Real Men Wear Pink Breast cancer affects men both by association and directly. Sponsored by St. John’s Hospital and the American Cancer Society, Real Men Wear Pink encourages men to wear pink on Fridays in October. Not only will this remind women in their lives to get their annual mammogram but increase awareness about breast cancer in men.

Take it to the web Twitter, Facebook, email, whatever your poison (we know you aren’t actually taking notes in class), are easy ways to promote awareness of breast cancer during the month of October. Many corporations will offer to donate for “likes” on their Facebook page, or pledge a certain amount of money based on retweets on Twitter. Be on the lookout for these kind of promotions.

HOW I SURVIVED
A
De’Andreia Joseph Shares Her Personal Story Of Life With Breast Cancer
words: desiree johnson photos: jeff ramirez

s teenagers, girls worry about their hair, friends, the right clothes or the attention of a crush. It’s the time when girls are beginning to form their identity, a time that should be free of the stresses of adult life. De’Andreia Joseph’s teenage experience, was a far cry from typical. When she discovered a lump in her breast at the age of 15, De’Andreia was thrown head rst into a rapidly shifting future. “When I was growing up, my mother always recommended that I do self-breast exams because it was something I needed to practice at a young age,” De’Andreia said. She didn’t anticipate that one of the rst times she would do this, she would detect a problem. When she discovered leakage during her examination, she knew instantly she had to see a doctor. A series of ultrasounds and mammograms revealed she had a “lump ectemy” that, after further testing, came back benign, or a tumor that doesn’t recur or spread to other parts of the body. For now De’Andreia was free of any serious health risks, although she was advised to keep doing her private exams. The Diagnosis Following doctor’s orders, De’Andreia continued her self exams diligently and at the age of 16 ran into yet another problem.“I felt two lumps the size of peas in my breasts, and I knew I had to go back to the doctor.” Just like the rst time, one of the lumps returned as benign, but the second lump

came back as malignant, or a tumor that could potentially spread to other parts of the body. At 17, she was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS), which is a noninvasive form of breast cancer. “When I was diagnosed I was told I could live up to ve years without it becoming invasive, but I wanted it treated regardless.” Her next visit included a more complex series of tests. Mammograms, MRIs and ultrasounds helped doctors better understand the nature of De’Andreia’s case. As a high school student she didn’t want to undergo chemotherapy - a process that could potentially rid her of cancer but would have drastic e ects on her body and taken time away from school. “ e doctors wanted me to wait it out and think it over before I made my decision, but I knew instantly I wanted to have surgery; there was no other option in my eyes. When I initially found out about the fact it was serious enough I had to have some kind of critical treatment I was shocked but I didn’t want sympathy from anybody. I knew I was going to be okay, and God was going to take care of me.” De’Andreia put on a brave face for concerned family and friends, keeping a positive attitude and trying to focus on the present. “I felt that dwelling on the issue wasn’t going to correct it or make it disappear, so instead I wanted to face it head on and get to the next course of action. I knew I didn’t want to live with this disease.”

I just opted to have my double mastectomy.

BREAST CANCER
I Will Survive Now 19, De’Andreia is a breast cancer survivor. She is currently a kinesiology and nursing student and is enjoying college life. Due to her diagnosis at such a young age, she is required to go back for check-ups every six months. Her case still ba es doctors because her family had no genetic history of the illness prior to her sickness, which at a young age is abnormal. De’Andreia doesn’t regret having the surgery that helped save her life, and instead she focuses on transitioning into college cancer free. e most inspirational moment she has had since her diagnosis was being surrounded by survivors, family, friends and supporters at her rst Susan G. Komen walk for breast cancer. Seeing people of all ages and backgrounds that shared her experience allowed her to relate and connect. It’s brought her comfort. As an aspiring nurse, De’Andreia seeks to promote breast exams for early detection of breast cancer. “ e best possible advice I can give to anyone who may ever encounter this, whether it be at my age or older, is to be optimistic. A pessimistic attitude won’t help. Know that you have a bright future ahead.”

IN HER WORDS
My Support System Throughout my whole experience with cancer my biggest support system was my mom and dad. They were there before I was diagnosed and when I was diagnosed they supported me with all of my decisions I made regardless if they approved of them or not. Of course the rest of my family was a big support too; both of my grandmothers came down from Louisiana to take care of me when my parents had to go back to work. My friends who knew about my sickness would constantly call to check on me, some even came to see me and bring me gifts. Family friends also called to check up on me and made short visits. Some of my high school teachers who knew called and texted. When I arrived back at school, they had even organized a basket of all things pink for breast cancer and gave it to me as a welcome back gift. To this day, the teachers I kept in contact with always check up on me, so I guess you could say I had a broad support system, not only from my family but also everyone who was around me or knew me. I really appreciate it because even though I kept a positive outlook on the whole situation having so many people who cared and were concerned was like a breath of fresh air and it also kept my spirits up. Advice For Students The advice I would give to young women my age is to always do self breast examinations and if you don’t know what it is to find out and start doing them. If it wasn’t for my mom telling me to do them I wouldn’t have found out I had cancer and who knows where I would be today. To the ones who know people who are going through cancer or have had cancer, the biggest thing you can do is keep a positive attitude about the situation because the last thing we want are the people around us to be overly sympathetic with us.

With the type of breast cancer I had, I didn’t have to undergo any type of chemotherapy or radiation because it wasn’t invasive. I just opted to have my double mastectomy.

MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew Winners Season 5 Champions, Poreotics, Break It Down On Living Life As America’s Best Dance Crew
looked promising. Enter America’s Best Dance Crew. On The Way To The Top Poreotics was awarded a standing ovation was awarded after their initial audition for America’s Best Dance Crew and, sure enough, they landed a spot in the fth season series. It’s clear as to why they quickly became fans’ favorites. With the shades, popping with precision, and comical yet intricate choreography, Poreotics was everything viewers wanted in a dance crew and went hard from episode to episode. Experts in popping and tutting, Poreotics were known as dancing robots with a mischievous side in every routine. They Like Chicken, Not Beef To become America’s Best Dance Crew was no easy feat. Because this was their rst time performing together with these six members, they had to quickly adapt to everybody’s habits–annoying or not. Being on the show was when they got the closest and learned the most from each other. For the three months of taping, Poreotics shacked up in a hotel with eight other crews and were constantly around one another despite the competition between crews. One would think there would be beef between crews as they all have their eyes on the prize, but it turned out that season ve was one of the friendliest seasons, competition-wise. “See, we don’t like beef. We like chicken,” Charles joked.

o say that Poreotics is on re is an understatement. It has been a year since they were crowned the champions of America’s Best Dance Crew and ever since taking the coveted title, life has turned upside down for these six dancing masterminds. From globetrotting around every major international city to dancing in Justin Bieber’s “Somebody To Love” music video, Poreotics has taken a passion of theirs into the dream career. Before ABDC ough Matt “Dumbo” Nguyen, Can Nguyen, and Charles Nguyen originally formed Poreotics back in December 2007, the six members featured on America’s Best Dance Crew never actually performed all together until auditions for the show. Shortly after the original three members collaborated, Justin “Jet Li” Valles and Lawrence “Law” Devera joined the crew. In 2009, Chad Mataye substituted Jet Li in the 2009 Hip-Hop Dance Championships. After taking rst place, Chad was asked to permanently join Poreotics. Dance has always been a part of every member’s life before the creation of Poreotics. ey have done everything from explosive performances on America’s Got Talent to humble beginnings with crews like PAC Modern Dance Troupe in California where much of their talent came from. It wasn’t until after they took home the winning title at the Hip Hop Dance Championships that they decided a future in dancing

In January, after winning ABDC, Poreotics took home rst place at the 2010 Hip Hop Internationals, placing rst in the U.S division and second in the World division. It didn’t stop there. Poreotics, in their uniform stunna shades, made an appearance in Justin Bieber’s “Somebody to Love” music video with Usher. “It was a really great opportunity for us, especially because we got to reunite with other ABDC alumni. We aren’t like Justin Bieber fanatics, but it was cool being able to work with him,” said Dumbo. ey continued to work with the Biebs as his opening act in Manila, Philippines. Most recently, they appeared as the hanky panky masked monkeys in Bruno Mars’s “ e Lazy Song” music video. There’s No Place Like Home Not only did Poreotics rub elbows with today’s most adored artists, but the fame that followed ABDC took them everywhere around the world from California to Canada, Russia, Singapore and even South Africa. Whether they were visiting these international destinations to perform or teach a dance workshop, the guys made time to experience each culture. Where was their favorite country? “Australia, de nitely. e accents, people, and parties – it was a lot of fun,” the crew said. ough they’ve been touring the world, they still make time for home back in the Golden State, even if it’s just for ten hours, to take a break from the life as a celebrity. “We’ve been really blessed to have this experience and are extremely grateful. It’s all the fans, too. Without the fans, we wouldn’t be doing what we love to do,” said Dumbo.

25 lucky students were picked from a lottery to recieve a private group lesson from Poreotics member, Chad Mayate.

UTSA’s HIP HOP

DANCE CREW

words: blakely tuten photos: jeff ramirez

Filipino Student Association Takes Over The Dance Scene

T

he Filipino Student Association (FSA) at UTSA has been a contributing organization to the campus since 1994. Comprised of many Filipino and non-Filipino students who come together to embrace the Filipino culture, the organization has become a melting pot of college students coming together for socials, IM sports, school spirit and giving back to the community. What started out as a 15-member organization meant to bring Filipinos together at UTSA has turned into group of more than 100 members. Not only did they populate in size, but they also diversi ed their cultures since membership is not limited to students of Filipino descent. Even though FSA has been involved in all aspects of the community, they are most well known for uno cially being UTSA’s hip hop dance crew. Performing at Best Fest, Fiesta and other university

events is only the beginning of where FSA has tested their skills. ey have shown their talent all around Texas, even taking their swagger to the World of Dance competition in Dallas. How It All Started In 1991, the Philippine Students of Texas organization created the Goodphil Games. Goodphil consists of a dance and sports competition between all the FSAs in the state of Texas. “We decided to form a dance group as soon as Goodphil Games originated,” said Grazielli Millare, a member of FSA’s modern dance team. “Every year we host tryouts to be a part of our modern team. Modern is a little misleading because we actually perform all hiphop teams. Tryouts are held by a couple of our very own choreographers. Once the choreographers pick a team based on tryout, we practice at least four times a week up to the weekend of Goodphil.”

Hip Hop Dance Crew ough Goodphil is the biggest dance competition of the year for FSA, they’ve taken on other challenges to prove that their dance skills aren’t only apparent in the Filipino community. Dubbed as UTSA’s Hip Hop Dance crew has led them to perform for the FTK Dance Marathon, African American Association and the EPIC talent show on campus. “Having this title is an extreme honor as we have been doing this for many years now. Having the title of ‘UTSA’s Hip-Hop Dance Crew’ means very much to us because we represent not only FSA but also our school as well,” said Millare. “We not only do what we love, but we do it proudly representing our school everywhere we perform.” Spreading the Love While the Goodphil competitions are annually held in the spring, FSA actively participates

in Isang Mahal (Tagalog, the Filipino language, for ‘one love’) held every fall semester by Texas A&M Phillipine Student Assocation. Similar to Goodphil, Isang Mahal brings together all 10 Filipino Student Associations organizations from di erent Texas universities to compete in a talent show and games to build camaraderie. In 2009, they placed in the top three and eventually took their routine to perform in the world-renowned dance competition, World of Dance.
Check out FSA’s upcoming performance at this year’s Isang Mahal on November 5, 2011, at Texas A&M. For more information on FSA, visit their website at www.utsafsa.org or check out their Isang Mahal and Goodphil performances on YouTube at youtube.com/UTSAFSAtv

YOURPLACE

Inspiring your dream room

DREAM ROOM

WITH

CHRISTINA PEREZ
words: desiree johnson photos: jeff ramirez

COLOR MY WORLD
Mixing young, vibrant colors with personal home touches gave Christina a place to stay grounded while in college. Christina’s room is reminiscent of a nice day at the park. The vibrant color schemes of pinks, greens, and purples give a new refreshing aura that screams anything but dull. She prides herself on being down to earth and embodying a youthful persona that she could express in her room. She values her firm morals, and enjoying time with her family and friends. Take a peak into a splash of color with just the right amount of playfulness.

What was your inspiration for decorating your room?
Christina Perez, 20 Hometown: Killeen Major: Sociology

What is one item in your room that best describes you?
My pillow pets. It shows that I am still young on the inside. It brings out my inner child that I hope I will never lose.

I am a girly girl. I love Disney cartoons, and if it was not a weird thing for a 20 year old to do, I would probably still play with dolls! I wanted to make my room express my child like qualities while maintaining a college atmosphere.

How close are you to campus? How do you like that?
I am only 10 minutes away from campus. Being so close is amazing! Tra c is not bad, and if I wake up late, I can still make it to class in minutes.

What is one thing you will change differently next year when decorating your room?
I want to make my room look more spacious. My room is so small now, but I wanted it to be cute at the same time. By decorating and adding extra furniture, I had no way of walking around my room. Next year my room is bigger, but I will focus more on the decorating aspect and not clutter my room with extra furniture.

Zebra picture holder • cork board hobbylobby.com $12/$20

Pillow pet: Mall Kiosks small for $15 and big for $25

How is your color scheme a reflection of you?
My color scheme is bright and colorful, and it re ects me as a happy and outgoing person.

MY PLACE

What was the vibe you were trying to achieve when decorating?
I wanted a vibe that would make people feel at home and young when they entered my room. Also a vibe that would make people smile because of all the colors I have in my room.

If there was one thing you could put in here that you don’t already have what would it be? Why?
I would want more decorations on my wall and more wall hangers, so I wouldn’t have to pack everything so tightly in my closet.

STUFF

OCTOBER HOROSCOPES
WHAT SHOULD YOU BE FOR HALLOWEEN
Aries
Need a group idea? Try Angry Birds. You can have pigs, wood planks and birds!

Taurus
Osama. (Okay, so it was news to dress up years ago, but who said rising from the dead wasn’t possible?)

Gemini
A box of Swisher sweets.

Cancer
Looking for something cheap? Tie a string to your leg. Instant Balloon.

Leo
Men in uniform are sexy.

Virgo
Look sexy and chic and dress up as Black Swan. Best friend, included.

Libra
Be anything but the overdone Playboy Bunny. They’re all sluts. And you are too, but let’s keep that on the DL, please?

Scorpio
Lady Gaga was so last year. Try her alter-ego Jo Calderone.

TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD DRINK:

PURPLE STUFF RELAXATION DRINK

1. It’s Halloween and you need to relax before going out in your I’m-not-trying-to-look-like-a-slut outfit. 2. It relaxes your body, and focuses your mind... in bed. 3. Midterms are around the corner and anxiety is kicking in. 4. The taste of Purple Stuff is superliminal. 5. Low in calories (so it won’t mess up your curves!). Remember, stay Purple. www.mypurplestuff.com

1. Magic Drunk Cat 2. Eye Glasses 3. Horse Hoof Hand 4.Dolphin Shirt 5. Pearl Necklace

Sagittarius
It’s not too-soon anymore to be Michael Jackson.

Capricorn
Need a boyfriend/girlfriend costume? Try the Wii controllers.

Aquarius
Gained the freshman 15? (er... 25?) Your best bet is a sumo wrestler.

Pisces
That annoying voice haunts to every other commercial. “Hi, I’m Flo. We’ve got you covered.” Insured or not, Progressive is a better choice than the gecko from Gieco.
