10 Things Everyone Loves About Fall

1. Pumpkin and Apple Picking: everyone's favorite things including a delicious treat and a cute instagram picture, it's a fun activity that let's you get away from your school responsibilities and be with people you love.

2. Sweater Weather: who doesn't love chilly weather when you can wear an over-sized sweater that's just warm enough with a hot cup of coffee or tea, or even apple cider.

3. Football, Football and More Football: almost every TV station has a football game on during this time of year. Whether it's college football or the NFL it's a great thing to watch with friends to wind down after a long week or weekend. If you're school has a football team it's a great way to be spirited. Cold nights under the lights were a high school favorite, and I wish I could spend fall doing it again.

4. The Leaves Turning: Even if you aren't fascinated behind the science of it, the leaves changing colors just makes for a beautiful time, and by the time the leaves fall everyone is ready to leave summer behind and embrace the cool weather and fun times ahead.

5. Halloween: everyone loves Christmas, but personally I think Halloween is the greatest holiday. It's my all time favorite for a night you get to be anything you want and no one can tell you otherwise. No matter how ridiculous it may seem if you want to dress that way you get to, no questions no judgments.

6. Apple Cidar Donuts: the most delicious fall treat along with caramel apples, these fall favorites never disappoint.

7. Pumpkin Spice Everything: it's fills up the stores. Pumpkin flavored food products and drinks are everywhere.

8. Color, Color Everywhere!: fall is easily the most colorful time of the year. Even if you don't like the cold weather and chilly football filled nights, you can't deny that the world is more colorful in the fall than any other time of year.

9. Endless Napping: there's nothing better than snuggling up in all your blankets when you know right outside your door the air is cool, but you're warm and in your bed with your favorite Netflix series.

10. Thanksgiving: who doesn't love to chow down on comfort foods surrounded by people you love and appreciate? We take time to appreciate everyone we love and everything we have been given while helping those less fortunate than us. Fall is such an altruistic time and I really feel that Thanksgiving is the culmination of the fall season and the spirit it brings.

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.

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.
