10 Reasons Why Autumn Is The Best Season

While it is always hard watching summer come to an end, I think that most people can agree fall is a great time of the year. Who doesn't love the beautiful colors of the leaves on trees, pumpkin spice everything, pumpkin carving, or the cool fall weather?

Here are some reasons why I believe that autumn is the best season.

1. Beautiful Colors...EVERYWHERE

This is probably the biggest reason why I love autumn so much. Everywhere you look, is beautiful. Trees changing into colors of red, orange, and yellow. The views of this time of year are so magical.

Not much is better than the crunch of the leaves below your feet as you're walking. Just simply driving down the road and through the countryside is a great way to take in the amazing views that fall brings with it.

2. Pumpkin spice everything.

When autumn comes around, you can find pumpkin flavored everything.

3. Cool Weather= Fall Clothes

Cool weather means you can finally wear jeans, hoodies, scarves, boots, beanies, etc. The weather is perfect, not to hot, and not to cold. Things aren't quite freezing yet, but there is still a nice cool breeze in the air.

4. Football Season

Fall weather means football season is upon us. Football season is a pretty big deal at the university I attend. (Northwest Missouri Sate University has the best DII football team in the nation, so I'd be lying if I said I didn't love football season.)

High school football games..College football games..NFL games. Whether watching it on TV or in person, football is a great way for bonding with family and friends.

5. Bonfires

What's better than cool weather and bonfires with friends? S'mores and a campfire hanging out with friends, is always a great way to spend a night with your friends this time of year.

6. Pumpkin picking and pumpkin carving

A trip to the pumpkin patch is a necessity this time of year. Pumpkins make great decorations, are super fun to carve, and make great memories along the way!

7. Haunted Houses and Scary Movies

I'm not a big fan of either of these, but I always feel obligated to participate in at least one of these activities because Halloween is creeping up.

8. Halloween Movies

Hocus Pocus is one of my favorite Halloween movies, but there are some others that are pretty good. You can typically always find a Halloween movie on TV this time of year.

9. Halloween and Thanksgiving

All of the best holidays are right around the corner. Halloween and Thanksgiving are two pretty awesome holidays, and they both lead up to Christmas.

Halloween is a time when you get to pretend to dress in a costume and be something other than yourself for a night. Not much is better than consuming large amounts of Halloween candy...and having leftovers for the weeks following.

Thanksgiving is a time you get to spend with your family and enjoy tons of delicious food.

10. A Fresh Start

Autumn is a new season and a fresh start. Summer draws to a close and a new school year begins. New memories will be made and old childhood memories will be remembered.

There is just something special about autumn, that will always have a piece of my heart.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!
