It's that time of year again. The basic white girls have been quiet for long enough as they've been preparing for their favorite time. They just CAN'T EVEN. So what makes Fall so special for these girls? What makes this season the most basic of them all?

1. Pumpkin spice lattes

Do you love Fall if you don't have a PSL in your hand?

2. Anything pumpkin spice for that matter

It's time to live and breathe pumpkin spice everything. Whether it is Jell-O, Oreo's, or Cheerios, you better go all out in honor of the season.

3. Football

Nothing goes better with your infinite scarf and leggings than Football season!

4. Pillsbury cookies

I have yet to figure out what it is about these little cookies that makes it so easy to eat the entire box.


5. Fall Decorations

You don't love Fall unless you prove your admiration to everyone who walks through your apartment door. I'm talking place mats, pumpkins, candles, fake Fall leaves, pillows, plates, etc.


6. Expressing how close Christmas is

September means Fall. Fall means Halloween. Halloween means we're close to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving means it's November. November means it's almost December. December means Christmas. It's 100 percent acceptable to start spreading the holiday cheer.


7. Bath and Body Fall scents

So if you use a different Fall scent for your shower gel, sugar scrub, body cream, body lotion, and fragrance mist, you can try almost all of the new Bath and Body works scents for the season by next week. Sounds great.

8. Basic Halloween costumes

We all better start looking for costumes now before all of the Harley Quinn, Devil, Bae Watch, Purge, kitty, and nerd costumes are already taken. Sexy Bert and Ernie? Who would have known.

9. Pumpkin patch pictures

Will you even buy a pumpkin? Probably not. If you do buy one, will you have any intent of actually carving it? Probably not. Regardless, the perfect pumpkin patch picture paired with a clever Instagram caption really shows off your excitement for the season.


10. Fall candles

I'm not really sure what a "Crisp Morning Air" or a "Perfect Autumn Day" candle is supposed to smell like, but put me down for three of each! If it's from Yankee Candle or Bath and Body Works, it has to be amazing, right?

11. Booties

They can be worn at any time of the year, but wearing them in the Fall just makes them that much better.

12. Leggings

Leggings are pants, I don't care what you say.

13. Sweaters

Nothing better than an oversized sweater that masks that post pumpkin pie food baby.

14. Flannels

A flannel and brown riding boots? It's a dream come true.

15. Uggs

Every color. Every height. They are essential.

16. Bonfires

Your hair smells like an ashtray, your marshmallow caught fire and fell into the pit, the smoke made your eyes water, and you sweat off all of your bronzer, but yeah it was a great time to take pictures then go back inside.

17. Incorporating the word "fall" as a pun for Instagram captions

Regardless of whether you upload a picture in a pumpkin patch or in a field of leaves, your followers STILL might not understand that it is Fall. Better remind them with a good pun.

18. Comfort food

Mmmm, Halloween Candy, Thanksgiving turkey. You're 10 pounds heavier, but 10 pounds happier.

19. No shave November

It's the season of jeans and leggings. Shaving isn't THAT necessary, is it?

20. Cuffing season

Cuddle weather is here! The mistletoe is being hung and you're thinking about buying Christmas gifts. Better settle down for the season.

21. Black Friday Shopping

After convincing everyone via social media that you are SO thankful for everything in your life, it's time to spend hundreds of dollars on things you don't need.

21. Baking

After spending the past few months ordering takeout and pizza, you suddenly discover your long lost talent of baking. Bring on the pies, cakes and cookies.

22. Thanksgiving

Mashed potatoes, turkey, and rolls, oh my! (just don't forget to Snapchat your food before digging in)

23. Dying your hair to a warmer color

If you didn't know that changing your hair color according to the season was a thing, now you do. Step aside blondies, it's time for some darker tones.

24. And matching the color of your nails to go with it

There's no room for bright pinks and purples. Nails must be browns, dark purples, etc. from now on.

25. Northface jackets

The Fall breeze can't stop you when you're wearing one of these.

11 Ways To Calm Your Seasonal Depression Before It Gets Out Of Hand

7. Treat yo' self...to a nap.

It is about that time of the year when everyone is feeling sad and stressed. This can be caused by the changing of the weather, too much academic pressure as exams press nearer, and many other reasons. Everyone is affected differently and show their problems differently, but it is still a concern.

I am here to offer some words of advice to anyone who may be struggling with something in their own lives. If something applies to you, take the words I present and see how you can act on them. You never know what may speak to you in your time of struggle and stress.

Do not worry because almost everyone else is going through something as well. They may not have as dramatic of situations as yours, but at least know you are not doing this all alone.

1. Dress warmer! 

Giphy

Dress warmer with extra jackets, gloves, and a hat whenever you go outside. Even if it is only for a few minutes in-between buildings, make sure you keep warm and protected. If you do not own winter clothing, now is the time to invest in some before it becomes too late.

2. Take care of your health! 

Giphy

Keep drinking lots of water and taking lots of Vitamins. The best way to fight the flu is to try to get extra sleep whenever you can. That means you should take more naps and try to get to bed a little earlier. You do not want to get sicker than you already are, trust me.

3. Call your family...

Giphy

Maybe it is time to finally give them a call whether it be for a few minutes or an hour long video chat. Even just seeing their faces over the phone may be enough for you. It might also be that time in the school to head back home if you are able to and see them in person. I am sure they would really appreciate that surprise especially if you normally do not visit.

4. Open up to your friends! 

Giphy

Turn to the people around you who genuinely care about you. They will be able to cheer you up or at least will try to make you feel better. Start doing activities that you enjoy and that make you happier. Overall, if your attitude is positive, you will feel less sad and will be a more fun person to be around. No one likes to be surrounded by gloomy people.

5. Actually do your homework...

Giphy

Now is not the time in the semester to start to slack off on all your big projects and essays. This is the best time to actually work on them, so now you have to set up a plan that works for you. You know how you can succeed. Make a plan, and stick to it!

6. Set up an appointment with your advisor! 

Giphy

Maybe you need to try talking to an adviser at your school who can actually help. Chances are they know a fair amount about the classes you are taking and how to help you succeed. You do not have to feel overwhelmed because there are people who want to help. Turn to some people in your classes and see if they understand what they are doing at all before you start to freak out.

7. Treat yo' self...to a nap. 

Giphy

In college this is almost bound to happen. My best advice is that if you can go to bed at a reasonable time, try to go to bed. If you ever have a moment where you know you are not doing anything, take a nap. Frequent short naps can actually help you, so you may as well try to fit some into your daily routine especially if getting 4-5 hours a night of sleep seems to be your average.

8. Go DO something! 

Giphy

Go do something with people just to get yourself out there more. Ask your roommate to go get coffee with you. Ask that guy who sits in front of you to see a movie with you. Do whatever you want to do and invite others along. There are always going to be people who will want to join you; you just might have to ask around to figure it out.

9. Watch some scary movies! 

Giphy

Spooky season will be back around before you know it. It will still live on in spirit, but just know other seasons are coming around anyway. If you are really feeling nostalgic, watch some scary movies with some friends on a Friday night just to remember all the good spooky times.

10. Break out the Christmas music! 

Giphy

The season I look forward to most of all is just around the corner. Soon enough all the radio stations will be playing carols, all the stores will have trees scattered around the entrances, and cars will be driving slowly through neighborhoods just to look at all the lights on each house. It will be here before you know it, so just always be ready.

11. Look forward to Christmas break!

Giphy

This is closer than you may realize, so just hang in there for these last few weeks. You will finally be able to relax and not have to think about school or exams. First you have to get to the end of the semester, so just stay focused on exams for now. The fun will come later.

No matter what you may be struggling with, you are not alone this cold season of problems. Find those people around you who will be able to help you the most. You got this!!
