Get Excited For Fall Season

7 Reasons Why I'm Glad Summer's Over

While I wholeheartedly believe that summer is the most wonderful season of the year, I’m really happy that it’s over. The only thing better than balmy summer nights and sun-kissed skin is the feeling of the seasons change. There’s plenty to look forward to as we slide into the fall season. Here are seven reasons why I’m glad summer’s over.

1. No more sunburn blisters

While I enjoy the beach more than a golden retriever enjoys playing fetch, my skin has it pretty rough. Sunburn blisters are the price we have to pay for a great tan. The best cure for burnt skin is the fall season (and a gallon of aloe vera lotion.)

While summer is my favorite time of the year, I definitely won’t miss baking like a potato and not being able to lie on my back at night. No, thanks!

2. Crispy fall mornings

What’s better than waking up to a crisp autumn breeze coming through the window as you’re snuggled up under a soft blanket? Imagine grabbing a latte (pumpkin spice or not, no judgment here) and strolling through the park.

The sound of freshly fallen leaves cracking under your shoes is the epitome of comfort. Time to break out the suede mocassins and stroll around for hours.

3. Sweather weather

I could never live in a place that didn’t have sweater weather. While I enjoy bikinis and denim shorts, I need the comfort of a silk sweater on my skin. Plus, fall is the perfect time to get super creative with your wardrobe.

While summer calls for turquoise earrings and bright colors, fall is dominated by cozy pastels. I love layering scarves, necklaces, and bracelets for a chic and effortless look. A great pair of jeans makes me happy, which is why I’m thrilled about the fall season.

4. I'm tired of sand everywhere

I’ll miss the warm sunshine of summer but I would definitely not be sad about the million tiny sand grains that get into my bathing suit at the beach. I’m not entirely sure what’s wrong with me but every trip to the beach is followed by enormous tracks of sand in my house, not to mention the sand in my hair.

Fall will bring some much-needed cleanliness and order into my life.

5. My water bill will go way down

Regardless of how high the AC is turned up in summer, I still feel sweaty and sticky. My water bill consistently goes through the roof from June to August. Fall means big savings which I can invest in apple picking and cute boots.

6. Halloween is right around the corner

Let’s be real - Halloween’s the best holiday of the year. You get to dress up however you please and get creative with decoration. At the same time, it’s not a family ordeal so you’re totally free to chill with your friends and party till late.

Creepy stories and visiting Salem give me goosebumps and heaps of adrenalin. Time to put on Hokus Pokus and plan the annual haunted house trip with the crew.

7. No more sweating like a pig when I try to cuddle with my SO

Fall means snuggle time. While I love being close to my SO in the summer, having two bodies trying to nap while exuding a ridiculous amount of heat is just unbearable. Fall, on the other hand, gives us the chance to be close together without being embarrassed or uncomfortable about the gallons of sweat rolling down our backs.

I swear, if it wasn’t for fall season, my relationship would have fallen apart.

While summer has been a complete pleasure once again, I’m super pumped for fall. What do you have planned for this season?

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
