Pumpkin, spice, and everything nice.

20 Reasons To be Excited For Fall
Noelle Grassel

As summer comes to an end, students everywhere with a non-air-conditioned dorm are anxiously awaiting the cold weather. Autumn is my absolute favorite season, so the fact that it's right around the corner makes me excited for all the things associated with it. The amount of activities, fashion, and food opportunities fall has to offer are endless. Whether you're all cuddled up watching a scary movie or jumping around in the leaves outside like a little kid, there's something everyone is bound to love about the season. Here are 20 reasons why you should be excited for fall:

1. Sweater weather

Everyone is aware that sweater weather is the best weather. There's nothing more comfortable than an oversized, fluffy knit sweater.

2. Scarves

While we're on the topic of clothing, scarves are the perfect addition to any fall outfit. Just check every Pinterest post.

3. Boots

Uggs, riding boots, combat boots, etc. They all pair easily with leggings or jeans for the perfect fall look.

4. Leaves

You're lying to yourself if you say you hate jumping into a huge pile of leaves.

5. Pumpkin picking/carving

Is it really fall if you don't have a little friendly sibling rivalry on who can find/carve the best pumpkin?

6. Hayrides

Whether you're with a sibling, friends, family, or a significant other, hayrides never get old.

7. Caramel apples

With nuts, Oreo's, M&M's, marshmallows, or just plain. Take your pick.

8. Halloween

It's the only holiday where you can pretend to be someone you're not and actually get away with it.

9. Halloween movie marathons

Disney Channel's Wiztober (which is now being called Monstober, because they love destroying our childhood) and Freeform (formerly ABC Family, again they love ruining our childhood) are really the only marathons that are important.

10. Pumpkin spice EVERYTHING

Lattes, candles, hand soap, muffins, pie, even alcohol–there is something pumpkin spice for people of all ages.

11. Hot chocolate

Because what other warm drink are you gonna have when you've already had three pumpkin spice lattes in one day?

12. Rolling yourself into a blanket burrito

There's no better way to lay on the couch.

13. Scary movie nights with friends

Not particularly my favorite night, but somehow I always get sucked into it. Always.

14. Fall colors

I'm pretty sure my suitemate has a collection of nail polish that consists solely of fall colors.

15. Flannels

Although it could be argued that flannels work during every season, there is no denying they work best during this one. They go so perfectly with a scarf and combat boots!

16. Thanksgiving

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F18%2F636097774347428282-2088477354_tumblr_nfeysozZll1qj4315o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=42&h=2dd0aad864b33bafbe3e19f15c70de3b0880b219ebc5a8b202f14f543640bd68&size=980x&c=2603292233 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F18%252F636097774347428282-2088477354_tumblr_nfeysozZll1qj4315o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D42%26h%3D2dd0aad864b33bafbe3e19f15c70de3b0880b219ebc5a8b202f14f543640bd68%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2603292233%22%7D" expand=1]

Thanksgiving may be my favorite holiday solely because of all the food, and I don't even touch the turkey.

17. Fuzzy socks

These babies are the equivalent of a sweater for your feet.

18. Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Okay, I understand if you don't want to participate in Black Friday because really, no one likes to get into fights with middle-aged moms over the last one of whatever the latest toy is. However, if you don't take advantage of Cyber Monday, you aren't truly living.

19. Haunted houses

You haven't been to a real haunted house until you've been to Fear Factory in New Zealand.


After a lot of bug spray and running for dear life from bees on multiple occasions, the end is near.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
