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

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!

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.

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.

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.
