Bye Bye Summer

Summer is great and all, but after a while sun poisoning and 98% humidity can wear a little thin. You know fall is the best season; you’re just scared to admit it. I’m here to help you realize just how fantastic fall is. From suede boots to apple pies, fall has got your back. So here are 16 reasons fall is the real MVP.

1. Fuzzy socks and boots

Whether it's cable knitted stylish socks, or fuzzy socks sliding across the dorm hallways, socks are finally back and peeking out of the top of your Hunter rain boots. Adorable.

2. Tea is once again hotter than the temperature outside

Now that you're no longer a boiling mess yourself, baking in the summer sun, a nice hot cup of tea is welcome to mellow you out and warm you up in the cool fall breeze.

3. Flannels... Flannels everywhere

My style just went from wearing as little as possible so the heat doesn't turn me into a puddle to lesbian lumberjack schoolgirl chic real quick.

4. Spending too much money and justifying it on back to school shopping

Deals, deal, deals, and student discounts. I may love fall, but my bank account does not. All that money I made this summer? Yeah it's pretty much gone now.... And winter in coming. But at least I look cute.

5. Fall aesthetic is so rich. Those leaves though!

I cannot express how stunning I find the changing of the leaves. The deep jewel tones of the fall make me so happy, and the crispness in the air makes the entire atmosphere feel clean.

6. Pumpkin EVERYTHING

Sorry not sorry I'm a basic white girl. But pumpkin and cinnamon make me very happy. Have you ever tried pumpkin ice cream? I recommend.

7. Halloween

Dressing up and eating candy? Yes. Running a round with your friends and partying? Yes. Watching scary movies and cuddling? Absolutely. Bring it on.

8. My birthday

Yeah ok, this may not apply to you but guess what, I'm selfish and there are other people out there who have fall birthdays too. Like the twins from the Parent Trap, go October 11th babies!!!

9. Camping is both aesthetic and climate appropriate

Leaves, hiking, boots, hot coco, camp fires, soup, cuddling up in a sleeping bag? I think yes

10. Scarves and Chunky Sweaters

We all know you're secretly a scarf hoarder. We're here for you. We all are. None of us are sure whether that's a scarf or a blanket either. But I do know one thing: I can disappear inside that blanket scarf and a huge sweater, and that makes me happy.

11. Layers!

More ways to be fashionably diverse, layering flannels and vests, scarves, hats, etc. fall is the time for fashion on fashion.

12. New TV is BACK

All your favorite shows have come back from their summer break, too bad you no longer have any time to watch them.

13. No more summer job- No more annoying customers

Goodbye tourists, hello being broke. It's a give and take.

14. New people

New classes, maybe even a new home. If you're going to school especially, fall means meeting new people and making friends. Yay socialization!

15. Fooooooooooooood

Apple pie, hot chocolate, again PUMKIN EVERYTHING, and cinnamon. Oh my god, let's not forget about the Halloween candy or thanksgiving cookies.

16. And that brings me to Thanksgiving

Food. Just so much food. Oh yeah and love and family too I guess. There's nothing like getting together with your most loved people and just stuffing your faces. It's really special.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

1. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future."

2. Psalm 46:5

"God is within her, she will not fall."

3. Luke 1:45

"Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her."

4. Proverbs 31:17

"She is energetic and strong, a hard worker."

5. Psalm 28:7

"The Lord is my strength and my shield."

6. Proverbs 11:16

"A gracious woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth."

7. Joshua 1:9

"Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

8. Proverbs 31:30

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised."

9. 1 Corinthians 15:10

"By the grace of God, I am what I am."

10. Proverbs 31:26

"When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness."

11. Psalm 139:14

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

12. 1 Peter 3:3-4

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

14. 2 Timothy 1:7

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."

15. Jeremiah 29:11

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'"

16. Exodus 14:14

"The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."

17. Song of Songs 4:7

"You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way."

Next time you're feeling discouraged or weak, come back to these verses and use them to give you the strength and power that you need to conquer your battles.

To The Stressed Out College Student, Be Optimistic For Spring Quarter

I am looking forward to a productive spring quarter.

As a strenuous ten weeks of winter quarter is finally coming to a close, there is no better feeling than to be rewarded with a week of spring break. For most colleges and universities, this period of time is one of excitement and relief, as students approach a summer vacation that begins in May. Yet, for students with schedules revolving around the lovable (and often hatable) quarter system, it feels as though summer is far from our reach.

On a personal note, my previous ten weeks of classes have been bearable at best. I can proudly say that I have been counting down the days until spring break since our winter quarter began in January, though now that the week is finally approaching, I am reminded by the fact that I have yet another ten weeks of school in the near future. Interestingly enough, I have not started the countdown to June 18th quite yet. Instead, I am looking forward to a productive spring quarter that will leave me feeling energized and accomplished as I enter into a fresh summer.

I believe that the spring quarter withholds a sense of refreshment and newfound energy in comparison to that of fall and winter. Though students on the quarter system will end classes later than others, there is something to be said for spending days on campus when the warm weather finally breaks. Time seems to pass faster than it did in the dark and ominous weeks of winter quarter, and everyone seems to have a more positive attitude - as we can all see that vacation is approaching.

To the stressed out college student, be optimistic for spring quarter. Though tests and finals will still be ever-present, the completion of another ten weeks of classes is excellent motivation to achieve success and reward yourself within the coming months.
