Idea of the week: October 23

Posted on: October 23, 2007

Hey Everyone,

Yikes! I know it’s been a while since my last Idea of the Week blog entry. I believe the last one dates back to August. The title should be more like the Idea of the Month! I promise to be better about posting an idea each and every week on fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. Here is the first installment of my new and improved Idea of the Week. I hope you enjoy it.

Halloween is right around the corner and I’m getting excited! Fall is by far my favorite season. Why? Well, it’s soccer season, the weather is beautiful, the leaves change, I can take out my cozy sweaters, and of course there’s always lots of candy around to eat on Halloween! I have such great memories of fall fun – pumpkin and apple picking, hay rides, and making apple cider! I try to do at least one of those things each year, and even try to do all of them if I’m lucky and have the time. With all of the fun festivities, how could one not love fall?

This week, why not celebrate the fall and Halloween? Get out the Halloween decorations and decorate your house, or gather up your friends and decorate your community center! If you get the chance, go to a pumpkin patch or the store and get a pumpkin to carve! Take a picture and post it here, I’d LOVE to see them! I’m going to try and go beyond my normal triangle nose and eye jack-o-lantern and make a funny face. We’ll see how it goes…

That’s all for now,

P.S. Don’t forget to visit the Girl Talk website for more information on all things girl!

Each week Girl Talk brings you the Idea of the Week filled with fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. It may seem that all your friends are spending their time partying and you’re probably thinking your only option is to join in. But research shows: nearly 75% of girls drink alcohol “to fit in.” That means many girls are making bad (and illegal!) choices because they feel like they need to. Do you want to suffer the negative consequences that come with underage drinking? Here’s my advice: be the cool girl who finds something else to do instead – you’ll probably find that other girls around you will be thankful and relieved to have something fun and safe to do!
