7 Reasons Why October Is The Best Month Ever

Spoiler Alert: Columbus Day didn't make the list.

7 Reasons Why October Is The Best Month Ever

1.    Halloween 

From carving pumpkins to binge-watching ABC Family’s 13 Days of Halloween with your roomies, we all know the best part of October is Halloween! And thank God there will be multiple dress-up nights because deciding on just one costume is WAY too hard.  A lot of effort goes into these costumes whether you are doing a group theme or rockin’ a solo costume, so take lots of pics! 

2.     Treats 

Finally, pumpkin flavored everything! October means cuddling up on the couch with some apple cider and noshin’ on some pumpkin spice cookies with that yummy cream cheese frosting. Don’t forget about those to-die-for Honey Crisp apples that taste even better when dipped in some hot caramel. 

3.     Sweater Weather 

September is still 80 degrees and crop-top acceptable, but now that October is upon us it's time to break out those cozy knits. Nothing is cuter than an oversized sweater, jeans and a killer pair of boots. The weather may be chilly but you’re lookin’ HOT.

4.     Dads Weekend

Daddy/Daughter time for an entire weekend? What more could you want? He’ll buy you (and all your friends) drinks and fend off any creepy boys that are lurking around the bars. This is our chance to prove to our dads that paying Greek dues is worth every penny! 

5.     Homecoming 

Get ready, your older siblings are back and ready to take on Ox Vegas again. They’ve been gone for far too long and are thirstier than ever for a Trash Can. They’ll prove to you that being a Red Hawk isn’t just for four years, it’s for life. 

6.     TV Shows 

Its official! All of your favorite shows are back and better than ever. From New Girl to Scandal to Saturday Night Live, it's time to kick back with a pippin’ hot fall drink and relax after a day of boring classes and stressful schoolwork. 

7.     Leaves

There is nothing better than strolling through campus and admiring those beautiful fall colors on the trees. That crisp fall smell and satisfying crunch beneath your feet as you walk through campus makes your walk to class a little more enjoyable. Get your phone ready, because that Autumn scenery is definitely Instagram worthy!

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.

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.
