For all you fall fans out there

10 Signs You're a Basic Autumn Girl

You know them. You love them. Chances are you might be one. Being a basic autumn girl is kind of a part of loving fall and not feeling ashamed. In honor of October, I think it is time to acknowledge a few things that being #basic in the fall entails.

1. You take selfies with your PSL/ Buy a PSL

You love pumpkin spice lattes. They are the greatest invention of all time and cannot picture your life without them. You buy Keurig attachments so you can have your PSL’s all year round and feel absolutely no shame.

2. You Buy anything and everything with the word pumpkin in it because it’s #fall

So bath and body works is doing a special scented candle autumn edition and you need to buy all of it. You buy lotions, candles, perfumes, and more to fill this intense desire to make everything in your life spirited for fall

3. You wear a study bun on the reg so your hair doesn’t get tangled in your statement scarf.

Every autumn lover knows that getting your hair caught in your scarf is just the worst, plus it makes every perfectly good PSL much harder to drink when your hair is caught in the cup.

4. You own Uggs

5. You match your lulu lemon leggings that you never wear to the gym with your Uggs

You didn’t even know Lulu was supposed to be worn for yoga and other athletic pursuits you just assume that their sole purpose is to be coordinated with your Uggs

6. You wear North Face vests when it is 50 degrees out

You put on your snazzy North Face quarter zip so everyone around you knows the weather is changing and your wardrobe is prepared. So you might feel like you’re getting a hot flash or two… but it’s ok because you look so comfy.

7. You wear a statement scarf to match your North Face and mandatory flannel

8. You collect one handful of leaves you manage to find on the ground to throw in the air for a basic #omgitsoctoberpic

So if you are in The South, there are a few sad brown leaves scattered on the ground. However, social media demands this. It needs this. YOU need this. So you collect as many brown sad looking little leaves and beg your friend to take 100 photos of you throwing your leaves in the air to announce the arrival of October.

9. You use #fall all the time

Do it for the insta.

10. You are planning on being some kind of animal for Halloween ie short dress and animal ears.

This is the ultimate basic autumn girl move. You have just too many parties to go to during halloweek so you decide to wear the skimpy black dress that you match to different ear and tail attachments while simultaneously coordinating with your fellow basic friends.

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.

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.
