I Love The South But Nothing Beats The Fall Up North

Pumpkins, leaves and cool weather makes for the best Fall.

Since moving to the South, I have loved every second of it. I love the trees here especially the palm trees. I love the constant warm weather except when it gets overly hot. I love being able to drive to the beach in the fall months and being able to sit and get a tan while everyone at home is bundled up in their warm clothing. The south has so many things I love but nothing quite compares to fall in the north.

Growing up in Pennsylvania I got to experience just about every season there is. The winters were always extremely cold and filled with snowy days while the spring season got warmer and the flowers and trees started to bloom. We always had hot summers that got worse as the months went on. Once September rolled around things eventually start to cool down.

Which brings the best season ever, in my opinion... Fall!! Fall in the north is the best for SO many reasons. Everywhere you go the leaves are changing and the weather is getting cool. I love being able to wear big sweaters and boots during the entire fall season. Nothing is better than wearing a big cozy sweater, jeans, and boots and going to your favorite market or pumpkin patch and enjoying the season.

Now I know in the Fall even in the south, you can deck your house out in fall decor to make it feel like the seasons are changing. All of the restaurants and coffee shops even feature special "fall" items. Even though the south has all of these fall-related things, I still hold my statement that fall is the best season when you're in the north.

Living in Pennsylvania during the seasons is great because you're close to all of the fall-related activities. You can be five minutes away from a giant pumpkin patch or even a corn maze. I was feeling in the mood to do some fall activities the other day so I decided to google where the nearest pumpkin patch was near me in Florida. Turns out it's not as close as I expected it to be.

No matter where I'm living and no matter what the weather is, Fall will forever be my favorite time of the year. But nothing in my eyes watching seasons change in the North. As much as I love palm trees and being able to see them every day, I miss seeing the leaves changing to multiple shades of orange and red. I love waking up and it is cool outside and the air feels crisp where I am able to throw on a sweatshirt and jeans and go.

My advice to anyone living in the south and hasn't been able to take a trip up north during the fall. GO! IT's a beautiful time of the year, the weather is perfect, and everything feels homier in the north during the fall. If you don't believe me, plan a trip and find out for yourself!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
