10 Things That Only Fall Lovers Understand

Though it is ridiculous, we all know that one person that cringes at the mere mention of pumpkin spice anything. Yes I love fall, and no I'm not sorry. Go ahead, judge me if you will, but if you can't appreciate the beautiful science behind the season that isn't too hot, and isn't too cold, I am so sincerely sorry. Listed below are 10 Things That Only Fall Lovers Understand.

1. Pumpkin Spice Everything

As a fellow lover of fall I whole heartedly understand your excitement! Seeing that first pumpkin spice flavored anything anywhere! Mini freak out am I right? It is just the start to our favorite part of the year! Haters back off let us have our PSL!

2. Seeing The First Leaf Change

One of my favorite parts of the fall season is the beautiful scenery. Leaves falling signals the beginning of it all! It is the most exciting thing to see after a long hot August!

3. Halloween Decorations

For the kind inside of us all, there is nothing better than walking through walmart and seeing Halloween decorations. For a college student, it gives you something to look forward to! You are never too old to trick or treat and let's be honest, can you really resist those decorations?

4. Movie Marathons

Whether it be horror movies like Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, or Halloween, or childhood classics like Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, no matter your preference you can count on these movies playing on repeat in honor of Halloween.

5. Candy

Just think back to when you were a kid and your eyes lit up at the beautiful sight of Halloween candies everywhere! Candy corn and popcorn balls and chocolate galore! What can I say Halloween gives me an excuse to indulge in my guilty pleasures.

6. Fall Festivals

Everything about a fall festival is enticing! The games, the food, and sometimes even the costumes all add up to a good time! It's like a fair, but it's based on the best season EVER.

7. Bonfires

Bonfires are a tradition in many places, especially the south! There is just something about a bunch of people coming together to watch some stuff burn. If you're lucky there might even be smores!

8. Hoodies

Finally! For the first time in forever you can break out those hoodies! Who does't love a good comfortable hoodie. It's like a constant hug!

9. Football

With fall comes football! Growing up in the south, football is taken very seriously. We bleed our colors and flaunt our pride! From high school to college, it's prime time for the sports lovers!

10. Thanksgiving

Among the reverence of this holiday and being thankful for our many blessings, there is also thanksgiving dinner! Thanksgiving is the holiday that fills you with thankfulness, love, and LOTS of food!

With that being said, my heart goes out to my fellow fall lovers! May your pumpkin spice be plentiful and your leaves fall soon!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
