Happy fall!!! If you're not excited then you're wrong. We welcomed this wonderful season of pumpkin spice and cuddle weather on September 22nd and I am here for it. Now that it is officially ~fall~ there are quite a few things that must be accomplished in just a few short months. Below is a condensed list of 10 MUSTS this spooky season.
1. Go to a pumpkin patch
Walk around pumpkins, drink pumpkin spice, carve pumpkins, decorate with pumpkins. Big pumpkins, small pumpkins, white, orange, green pumpkins- we love it ALL. Hit up the corn maze while you're there.
2. Go to an apple orchard
Similar to going to a pumpkin patch. There's hot apple cider, apple cider doughnuts, homemade applesauce, the creations are endless. Head out to your local apple orchard and start picking! (after you pay of course)
3. Haunted Hayrides/ House
Okay, this one is obvious. If you have never been to one or you're unfamiliar with the places around your school, here are some of the best haunted houses across the US.
4. Watch spooky movies
Netflix is FULL of horror movies. If suspense and jump-scares aren't your thing, there are always comedy spoofs that can fulfill the spooky movie requirement.
5. Break out the flannels
Flannels, sweaters, booties, scarves, jackets, I am HERE for it. Why can't this be year-round apparel?
6. Volunteer at food banks
The weather is getting colder and there are people who are either homeless or can't afford both food and heat. If you are blessed enough to have a warm bed at night and not to have to worry about your next meal, now is the perfect time to give back. Canned goods are great donations as well as donating your time to the food bank.
7. Decorate your dorm room
Reds, oranges, browns, purples, blacks, get it all up there! Mix up your living space and create a whole new look with the season.
8. Eat ALL the candy
No need to wait until Halloween- or to go trick-or-treating. Eat it all, queen, you deserve it. Besides the extra pounds will keep you warm as the weather gets colder.
9. Become completely overwhelmed with the amount of school work you have
Woohoo midterms! Love to see it and love to be stressed about it. Remember that candy from before- keep eating it.
