20 Reasons Why Fall is the Best Season in Blacksburg

From Pumpkin Spice Lattes to visiting the Pumpkin Patch, fall in Blacksburg brings everybody outside to enjoy the view.

20 Reasons Why Fall is the Best Season in Blacksburg

Fall is by far my favorite season but I didn't quite fall in love with until I came to Virginia Tech. God was clearly a Hokie. Why else would the leaves change maroon and orange in the fall? Here are 20 reasons why fall is the best season in Blacksburg.

1. All pumpkin everything: Coffee, pie, patches, etc. You name it, we have it.

2. Fall clothes: What girl doesn't like a good pair of skinny jeans, riding boots, and a chunky scarf.

3. The beginning of Bean Boots season: Don't act like you don't have a pair/don't want a pair.

4. How beautiful campus becomes: The changing leaves create the perfect color contrast against the grey Hokie Stone that decorates our campus.

5. It gets cold enough that there is an excuse to cuddle.

6. Football games: Finally there is always something to watch on TV.

7.Pumpkin patch pictures become a staple: If you haven't been to Sinkland farms then you are missing out.

8. It's an appropriate time to start planning the perfect Halloween costume: You know you want to make a statement this year, so what will you be on Halloween?

9.Jumping in leaves: There are leaves everywhere and no one hates it. Take the time to enjoy them.

10. Warm drinks: Goodbye iced caramel coffee. Hello pumpkin spice latte, hot apple cider, and hot chocolate.

11.Guys dress nicer: Yes this is a drastic generalization, but it gets cold enough outside that we girls will see less and less gym shorts.

12. Fall Break: We may only get one Friday off, but one day is better than none during these heavy test weeks.

13. Less humidity: Guess whose hair will not frizz up like a lion as soon as they walk outside? This girl's.

14.Bonfires: Eat a s'more or two for me.

15.Lower electricity bills: We can finally turn off the AC and put a few extra dollars back into our wallets.

16. You are finally settled in: Gone is the stress of moving in and arranging all your things the way you like them. Now you finally get the chance to enjoy your living area and know what classes you are going too on each day.

17. New movies come out: Gone Girl, The Best of Me, or Ouija (if that's more your style).

18.Farmers Markets in Downtown Blacksburg: The market is literally so full of townies it's impossible to not get wrapped up in the homemade desserts, soaps and local produce.

19. Always an excuse to go for a long drive: Just driving around Blacksburg off campus, you really get to experience the beauty that the Blue Ridge Mountains hold and appreciate how every single leaf is a different color. 

20.Fall is a great excuse to become an outdoorsy person: Never loved hiking or camping? Now you are in a perfect environment with some of your best friends so you finally enjoy the cooler temperatures, gorgeous scenery, and new memories to come.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
