The Results:

Mostly A’s: “The Sweet One” — Angel Halo/Crown/Flower Filters

Even over Zoom, your positive energy is infectious. Spread the spooky szn joy love by choosing a positive and radiant filter to represent your overall joyous aura.

Mostly B’s: “The Basic AF” — Animal Filters

You love the Halloween theme that’s going on, but you’re not a die hard Scream Queen Halloween isn’t that big of a deal to you, even less so online. So instead of going to your nearby Halloween store and buying that set of black cat years you always get, save yourself some money and use one of the free filters instead.

Mostly C’s: “The Burnout” — Try the Hat Options/Cool Glasses/Pirate

You're the definition of “hanging in there.” Sure Halloween is great, but your four psets and two essays are what’s really giving you nightmares. Try using one of the hat and face covering filters — it‘s low effort, incognito, and one less thing to worry about right now.

Mostly D’s: “The Graduate” — Graduation Cap Filter

You're probably an upperclassmen who’s done with Zoom Uni, or maybe just a freshman who knows what's up. This filter is the only option for you because tbh, you seem mentally done with school and most definitely done with 2020, and you’ve probably watched The Social Dilemma too many times. Use the graduation cap because you just want conv(a)cation.
