5 Things I Want to Do This Fall

I'm really excited to have a real fall experience and these are some things I want to do.

5 Things I Want to Do This Fall

I'm very excited because this will be my first fall where it's not in the 90's almost the entire time. Where I'm from, it doesn't cool down until at least November and cool in Texas means in the 60s which is not that cool compared to New York. My friends have already talked to me about their favorite things that they do and that they want to share with me, so here are five things that I'm excited to do this fall in New York:

1. Go pumpkin picking

Honestly, I can do this at home but it's like 85 degrees and not fall like at all. I'm already excited about going in New York because I'll be able to wear jeans and a flannel for cute pictures and not be dying/melting underneath. Also, it would be cool to do it at a pumpkin patch considering there aren't too many where I am from. I will finally be able to get the real fall experience of pumpkin picking!

2. See the leaves change

The leaves in Texas don't change and if they do it's a very short-lived change. The leave life cycle where I am goes from the leaves being green one day and then dead the next. Up here the leaves are already starting to change, so I'm excited to see all the fall colors around me for once and have it stick around for a bit.

3. Go apple picking

I've never gone apple picking before, so that's something I'm really forward to this fall. I'm also looking forward to baking something with all the apples I pick! I've already been on Pinterest looking at fun fall apple recipes!

4. Sitting by the fire

Most people back home don't have fireplaces and if they do, it's just for show. Someone who has a fireplace in Texas really only uses it a hand full of times and really only during winter. The times that I've been up here in the fall, the places with a fireplace have had a fire going in them so I'm excited to sit by the fire and sip apple cider.

5. Wearing sweaters everyday

Okay, so this one I do at home during the winter, but it's honestly my favorite thing about cold weather. Winter clothes look so put together already, so I love being able to throw on a sweater and jeans and look like I spent a hour on my outfit. Also, sweaters are super comfy and forgiving which is great after I eat all of the pumpkin bread my stomach can hold!

Fall is literally my favorite time of the year, so this year I'm really excited to experience it for a couple of months instead of a couple of days! Also, I get to experience it in a place that has a real fall and not just a sort of fall and with all of the new friends that I have made so far!

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.
