9 Reasons I'm Excited For Fall

Summer is great because there's no school, endless fun nights, ice cream, swimming, beach trips, and golden tans. As summer slowly creeps to an end, we all patiently wait for fall to arrive. Now, if you're anything like me, you know that fall is one of the better seasons, if not the best (summer is only cool for my birthday). I'm going to share a few reasons as to why I love fall, and I hope you share some mutual feelings towards it.

1. Football!

Ready, set, hike! Ah yes, football. I love football for every reason under the sky. Watching it, yelling at the TV with my family, the players, the excitement, just all of it. There's nothing like making buffalo chicken dip and ordering some wings to watch the big game every Sunday (granted it's on a Sunday). I love throwing on a jersey and rooting for the Steelers. Go Pittsburgh!

2. PSLs.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks taste like Heaven liquified in a cup. I don't know how those baristas do it, but they manage to make my piping hot drink taste like a liquid pumpkin with whipped cream, and what's better than that? I just get so excited when I hear that the PSL is back for the season.

3. Apple picking.

Fall is when apples are at their peak time to pick, and who doesn't like apples? You know what they say, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." It's so much fun to just go to the orchard and pick a bunch of apples to make pies, cookies, breads, cakes, and more. Nothing is better than some homemade applesauce either!

4. Pumpkin carving.

Pumpkin carving is just as exciting as apple picking because you get to go pick your pumpkin from the patch! Big ones, small ones, round ones, deformed ones, orange ones, white ones; we love them all! Then you get to bring it home, scoop out the yummy pumpkin seed guts, and carve whatever design you want into it for display.

5. Bath and Body Works Fall Collection.

Oh yeah, I may sound a little girly here, but I could live in that store during the fall. With over 20 variations of pumpkin and apple smells, who wouldn't want to smell like it 24/7? I'd tell you my favorite smell, but it's so hard to pick just one. Between pumpkin pecan waffles, salted caramel pumpkin, marshmallow pumpkin latte, homemade apple pie, and many more, it's so hard not to want them all.

6. Bonfires.

Everyone loves a good bonfire. The smell of the fire just has a homey feeling to it. It's like a big warm hug. Also, S'MORES! Everyone loves s'mores! the ooey-gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate between two graham crackers. Yum, yum, yum!

7. Cooler weather.

When the 90s finally turn into 60s, that's when everyone gets happy. We step away from the humidity, and we couldn't be happier. Though we may be giving up our golden tans, we can't complain that we're no longer sweating oceans or suffering from sunburns. Goodbye shorts and tanks, hello yogas and sweatshirts!

8. Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Possibly two of the better holidays in the book. Halloween you get to dress up and get lots of candy as a kid, and maybe possibly as an adult by stealing your kid's candy. Thanksgiving is great too because of the food. So. Much. Food. Filling, potatoes, turkey, ham, green beans, rolls, and much more. Who can argue? Plus, Black Friday is the next day, and who doesn't love deals on shopping?

9. Parades.

Now who doesn't love parades? For some reason, we all just love going and sitting to watch parades with the firetrucks, various characters, local teams, and Santa at the end. Plus, who doesn't love getting free candy?

Happy Fall y'all and embrace your inter white girl!

The First 2020 Presidential Debate Was 90 Minutes Of Pure, Unfiltered Garbage

The Commission on Presidential Debates needs to do something to change the format for the next two debates.


There are a lot of words that I could use to describe my reactions even after a little less than 14 hours of being able to process what I saw unfold last night from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. Informed — or even entertained — was far from one of them.

10 Songs That Made It Onto My September Playlist

September is the month for Los Angeles natives and Australian music fans.

Not only was it a month for Los Angeles bands, but many Australian bands released new music — San Cisco's fourth studio album, Surf Trash single, Skegss single, and High Tropics single. I made new discoveries this month and was pleased by the amount of new music.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

I've been in a media job for the entirety of my professional career. From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
