A pumpkin patch is on everyone's fall "to-do list!"

Now that Autumn is upon us and Halloween is quickly approaching, this is the perfect season to visit a pumpkin patch!

You won't regret "carving" time out of your day for this!

1. Prove to yourself that pumpkins are like snowflakes.

Bryanne Sanchez

God's creations come in all shapes and sizes, and a pumpkin patch will prove it to you! Just as there is not one snowflake like another, all of the pumpkins are uniquely grown, too!

2. Learn to master the art of balancing a pumpkin on your head.

Who knows? This may be a hidden talent that you never knew you had? (or maybe you just have a flat head??)

3. Take fun, fall pictures with your friends!

Capture all of the memories you and your friends are making at the pumpkin patch with a few pictures! These will be moments captured in time that you'll definitely want to look back on.

4. Buy a new pumpkin friend. 

Bryanne Sanchez

Pumpkins are reasonably priced at a pumpkin patch, and you won't find a better selection at any nearby stores! The little baby pumpkins are by far the cutest (and cheapest)!

5. Celebrate sweater weather! 

Bryanne Sanchez

In Texas especially, it can be hard to find the right time to break out our sweaters, cardigans, scarves, and jeans. When you're visiting a pumpkin patch, you'll want to dress up for such an occasion!

6. Use the pumpkin patch as a family portrait backdrop. 

Bryanne Sanchez

We joke that this picture is our "sappy family photo," but in all seriousness, this is a perfect photo opportunity for any family's fall picture session. My friends and I saw multiple babies dressed up and ready to pose in front of pumpkins twice their size!

7. Make it a date! 

Bryanne Sanchez

My friends Chris and Emily Jane loved spending time with each other here! I'm sure if there had been more time they could've stopped for hot chocolate or coffee before visiting! @ all boys: take your date here!

8. Awkwardly lay on pumpkins for a roomie picture! 

Bryanne Sanchez

Where else will you have the chance to lay on a pile of pumpkins just to take a cute picture with your roomie/best friend? Not pictured above: our struggle to lay flat on all of the pumpkin stems!

9. Polish up your photography skills. 

Bryanne Sanchez

I had the pleasure of taking many of my friends' solo shots. A pumpkin patch is a festive place to have fun while perfecting skills you never knew you had!

10. Spinning a basketball is overrated. Learn how to spin a pumpkin! 


Kylee and I tried (and failed) to successfully spin a pumpkin, but I encourage you to try!

Is visiting a pumpkin patch cliche this time of year?

No! What better thing is there to do right now?

If you're in Waco, TX, head over to Central Christian Church, because they were the inspiration behind this article. There's no entry fee, and I am sure you'll have a perfectly "gourd" time!

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.
