Hello all, my name is DeMarcus Davis and I have returned back to the blogging scene! It’s been a while since the summer and I am still trying to shake that “summer time sadness” because it was just too much fun. Now that school has kicked off and we are almost finished with the semester….I know, it’s crazy and I don’t want to talk about it either; however, we have to. Later, in my blogs to come, I will discuss more about the fall weather, my podcast, ‘Fontbonne After Dark’, and senior year! Just hold tight and join the ride with fun adventures from friends and campus programs that Fontbonne organizations put together for a memorable experience.
Wow! Time is flying by! October is pretty much over and soon it will be Thanksgiving & Christmas!!!!! Since I don’t celebrate Halloween, I am excited about my church’s fall festival we’re having on this coming Saturday. There’s going to be food, games and fun, fun, fun!!!
Along with having the fall festival, it’s such a blessing that our church is collecting food for Thanksgiving and will be distributing the meals to needy families next month. That brings great joy to my ears and heart!
What are some things you have planned as it draws near to the holiday seasons?
Because of Fontbonne I will be able to design curriculum for both the deaf and hearing communities within the Instructional Design & Technology industry as well as provide exceptional online training. I’m so very humbled to be involved in this field because it aligns with skills I already have and are currently enhancing those skills to a whole new level!
I’m thankful to Fontbonne for sending me that “Grad Preview” night post card and me being obedient and open to coming that night. That was a great decision!! #FBUGriffinNation
So…I love Halloween. I can’t really recall a year that I didn’t have a fantastic time celebrating the holiday – my default costume, when I was a kid, was a simple black cat, while my parents always went as Greasers (slicked back hair for my dad, huge hairspray curls for my mom, and packs of cards under their rolled sleeves to look like cigarettes). We would go to the zoo in Knoxville, Tennessee, to trick-or-treat, then watch a spooky movie like Hocus Pocus when we arrived home.
Things have changed in recent years – in my junior year of college, I tackled sugar skull face paint. I woke up at 6 am to create the look, especially motivated by the fact that I would receive extra credit if I showed up to class in costume. Last year I dressed up as Suicide Squad Harley Quinn – BEFORE the hype – and went to a costume contest with some of my friends to check out the town’s creative outfits. This year? I have no idea where the wind will take me, but I do know exactly what I’m going to be. I practiced the makeup last night – check it out!
This makeup is great because it’s like, am I Hades? Am I Corpse Bride? Am I just a dead Disney fan? (Answer – A. Disney Hades is basically my spirit animal, and I’ll look a whole lot more like him when I break out the gray skull-embellished toga, blue hairspray, and Grecian braids).
I hope you guys have a great Halloween! Happy Haunting!
Keep moving forward.
