Sorry Moon Wolf, but your Yom Kippur date is incorrect. Yom Kippur day is actually September 25. (starts on sep 24 night). (That's because today is 3 Tishrei and Yom Kippur is Tishrei 10)

LMWAY- I'm going to dress up as Artemis, the greek goddess of the moon, and The Hunt, and ectra ectra. I have a cloak, and it's so fun to swish around in. It'll go good with my costume!

LMWAY: probably a leprechaun—a kid on my soccer team promised to buy me a top hat if I scored three goals in the season (I usually play defender, so that's kind of hard) and I'm 2/3 of the way there, so I'm going to take advantage of the hat :D

Joke column: What do you call two witches sharing an apartment? Broommates. Where do ghosts trick-or-treat? Dead ends.

(in response to advice): EXACTLY! :) :)

specifically, procrastination and knowing you should do something but sidling away from it until it's not even the night before but the moring of and you only get a very unhealthy 4 hours of sleep so you promise yourself that next time you'll be more proactive but then next time happens and you're just like.... no. And then sleep deprivation.
