Goodbye summer, hello fall.

7 Very Real Reasons To Be Excited For Fall

We all may have our different opinions about fall, but you have to admit, there are some things that everyone can relate to. After all, it's the season that gives us the chance to turn over a new leaf (literally), get a new wardrobe, and celebrate some kick ass holidays. Forget about hay rides, corn mazes, the crunching of the leaves, and other aesthetically pleasing aspects of the season and let's focus on the very real things that make us happy to be rid of summer and say hello to fall.


I don't about you, but I'm a huge sweater person. There's something about being wrapped up in these huge, comfy pieces of clothing and being able to look cute at the same time. Plus, sweaters look great on anyone. The bigger the sweater, the better. Now, who's ready to bring their sweaters out of hibernation?

2. Not having to shave, THANK GOD! Leggings for days.

It doesn't get any better than this. Summer is more than enough time to have to shave. We love our dresses, skirts, and shorts but by the end of the season, we're all ready to not have to shave every single day or every two days. And if you are one of the girls who never feels the need to shave her legs, more power to you. Goals.

3. Halloween.

Who isn't excited about Halloween? Candy, scary movies, costume parties, haunted houses, and let's be honest, you're never too old to go trick or treating. Just make up some excuse like, "Oh I'm just tagging along and taking care of my little brother/sister/niece/nephew." No big deal.

4. The obsession over hot drinks like teas and lattes.

Yes, we know pumpkin flavored beverages are all the rage during the fall but that isn't the only thing we should be excited for. We can actually have hot drinks and worry about starting to sweat after a couple of sips. I love the cold and the fact that it's simply so pleasing to warm up with a nice hot tea or latte is one of the best things in the world.

5. Fireplaces.

Now, this one might be a bit borderline cliche because it's not like we're going to be near one at all times or that it'll be like the movies we're the crackle is "just right" and it gives off just the right amount of heat. In reality, you're really only going stay close to one of these for a few minutes until you start to sweat under your cozy sweater. Still, I'd warm up by the fireplace than the opposite situation, cold.

6. Being able to breathe during a jog.

I don't know about you but personally, jogging in the cold feels like one of the best things in the world. If you haven't tried it, you should. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it definitely beats being able to run for only five seconds in the scolding heat and feeling like death after about a minute. I find myself saying that it's way too hot to go running in this heat but as soon as the temperature goes down, it'll be much easier to run and not feel as tired while doing it.

7. Not sweating 24/7.

Whether it's climbing just one flight of stairs or walking to class, by the time you get to your destination, you're already sweating like crazy for no reason. WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT?! I understand it's a normal bodily reaction to heat but come on, we just want to stay smelling nice. Who else is ready to not sweat their make-up off after one class or worry about sweat stains?

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
