Finding My Badass-Self on Halloween

The WORST part of my personality (and trust me, the competition for that honor is fierce) is that I worry way too much about what other people think of me and have a tendency to bend over backwards to make other folks happy.

Even when that makes my life more sucky.

Today, on Halloween - the best day of the year as far as I'm concerned - I'm sitting in my office dressed as Snow (the huntress from the Enchanted Forest in Once Upon a Time) with my bow and arrow on my desk. As I posted on Facebook this morning, it makes me feel pretty badass.

Badassery has become, in fact, a consistent Halloween theme for me (albeit an unconscious one).

2010 = no costume that I recall but I attended John Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity
2011 = Elphaba
2012 = Rosie the Riveter
2013 = A Suffragette
2014 = Snow (the badass huntress)

My goal for this next year is to take my tough attitude into the rest of the year with me.

Watch your butts, people....I'm on the march.
