The aster is a vibrant wildflower historically sought after based on the belief that it could repel evil spirits. In the modern day, we recognize it as a symbol of love, patience, and reflection.

September 23 marks the first day of fall! Get ready for cozy sweaters, apple picking, hot chocolate, and colorful leaves on the trees!

7. Apple picking

September is the perfect time for apple picking! It's never too early to stock up for applesauce, apple cider, and apple pie. Plus, the weather is beginning to get just as crisp as the fruit.

8. School supplies

Maybe I'm alone in this, but the beginning of September means stocking up on school supplies. I love an excuse to buy tons of pencils, notebooks, crayons, and the like.

9. Fresh pens and notebook

Since the weather is getting colder and the sun is setting sooner, we often spend more time indoors in the fall, which is a great time for writing and reflection. So, why not invest in some nice pens and a smooth leather-bound journal to fully enjoy the season.

10. Board games

https://www.pexels.com/photo/monopoly-board-game-on-brown-wooden-tabletop-776654/

It can be sometimes dreary when fall weather rolls around. But if journaling is a bit too isolating, board games are a great way to hang out with your friends on a chilly evening.

September goes by so quick, so take a moment and enjoy this lovely month of the year.

PS: Shoutout to all the Virgos and Libras!

Airports

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

Airports

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.

New millennial jargon seems to arise everyday, one of the newest being “daddy." While people have always said things like “sugar daddy" or “come to daddy" (which sounds a tad creepy to me...okay, a lot creepy), now just referring to an attractive man or one's boyfriend/husband as simply “daddy" has become the norm. *Gag*

Clarity To Confusion

How I lost my certainty of the future.

Clarity To Confusion
Mercedes-Benz

Last year, I knew exactly what I would be doing with my life. Not just what major I wanted, although, I did know exactly what I was going to major in during college. I went further, though, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I aimed to be a book editor and use my French and English majors to go into technical editing after going to grad school. Yet this semester, disenchantment hit. I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life anymore. I still loved the idea of being a book editor. I still loved reading. I just couldn't feel any passion towards the courses I had to take this semester. They were amazing, but they didn't excite me the way courses I would love should. They didn't inspire feelings of amazement at how awesome my major is. It was then I realized maybe my major wasn't for me.

The Procrastination Station At College

We all have checked into "Procrastination Station" more than once..

The Procrastination Station At College
Achieve Center - Wendy Loewen

In high school, being a procrastinator wasn't that big of a deal in my own opinion. But coming from a school that didn't really have strict deadlines on things, meaning you basically got points for turning it in be it exactly on or before the deadline, or 4 weeks later when you realize your grade needs to be raised up. So, when I came to college, I knew it would be different. It hasn't really been hard transitioning into a good student when it comes to out of class work and projects, but it hasn't been that easy either. I will use myself for example. I am enrolled in Introduction to Public Speaking, and it's not that is a hard class, because it isn't, but I just get lost in other things and before I knew it, I had to present a persuasive speech the next day. I also realized this at about 11:15 the night before, and had about half of my outlines done, and my visual aid hadn't been started on. Though I got it done, I promised myself that I would not ever just wait until the last minute with specifically this class, but with any other class also. After that little dilemma, I decided to look for ways that I could get things done in a timely manner. So, here I have listed a few things that I now use in order to get things done before the deadline so that I do not have to rush and worry about it the night before:
