8 Things To Love About Fall

8 Things To Love About Fall

There are so many things that make Fall so perfect.


Overlooking this extreme heat wave, Fall is on the way! Fall is one of my favorite seasons because it has perfect weather, beautiful scenery, and fun fall-activities. Fall in Upstate New York is breath-taking and every time it comes around, it brings excitement and joy.

1. Fall Clothes. Period.

Sweater weather! You can finally go into your closet and find your cozy knit sweater and wrap yourself in it for class. It's cute, comfy, and keeps you warm and snug. In addition to cute sweater, you can bring out your fall boots, jeans, leggings, fuzzy socks, scarves and jackets! Now that you aren't melting under the thousand degree sun, you can layer and accessorize your clothes without the worry of dying of a heat stroke.

2. The Apples!

If you haven't been apple picking in Fall, have you really been living your life to the fullest? Rally up all of your friends and go to your nearest apple orchard and have a fun day taking cute pictures and picking perfect apples.

3. Pumpkin Spice Lattes

I know, I know. This is such a cliché thing to say, but it's true. There are only certain flavors that come out only in this class that makes them so special. I'm not an avid fan of PSLs, but I will always get one when the season starts just to get myself into the "fall-spirit."

4. Trick or Treat!

Boo! In a couple weeks, Halloween will arrive and value packs of candy will cover the shelves of Target and everyone will start to create their costumes. It's that one time of year when you can dress up and become a character (or whatever) you want to be. People get goofy and creative with their costumes and it brings me back to my childhood.

5. Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because of the food and quality time with family. After stressful midterms, you can go home, relax with your family, and eat so much amazing food. It's the best feeling.

6. The Weather

When the leaves change, the temperature drops, and the air becomes more crisp, everything just becomes so pretty. It's amazing to go on hikes when the weather is so clear and fresh. Also, I love driving past lakes or hilly roads to see trees glowing red, yellow, orange, and hints of green. Something about it creates butterflies in my stomach and tugs at a nostalgic memory I had when I was younger.

7. Hollenbeck's Cider Mill

Number 7 may only be relatable for townies, but I urge you to find way to visit the local Hollenbeck's Cider Mill for some fluffy soft donuts and freshly squeezed apple cider. So many people flood Hollenbeck's during this season because this is the only time of year they are open! It's the only time of year you can get the best donuts and apple cider, ever. I am not paid to say this. This is how strongly I feel about this cute cider mill.

8. Perfect Netflix Weather

Lastly, Fall brings the perfect weather to just go home after class and snuggle up under your fuzzy blanket and relax with some Netflix.

Happy Fall!

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
