Dear Syllabus Week,

Ah, syllabus week. Also affectionately called 'chillabus' week or 'sylly' week, this is undoubtedly a students' favorite time of the semester. We are grateful for this lazy week, thankful for the limitless spiked hot chocolate we can drink, and excited to be back with our friends.

This week is the perfect transition from a lazy and relaxing break to the hectic and stressful semester. Professors spend the first couple classes going over their rules, attendance policies, and talking about future assignments (which seem so far in the future that you don't bother worrying yet). You get to feel out your professors' teaching style, scope out your classmates, and you usually get dismissed early. You can even show up late and use the old "I got lost" excuse!

You can go out on a Tuesday or Wednesday night (even though you have a 9 a.m. the next day), and nobody judges you. In fact, going out and having a good time is encouraged. The bars usually have back-to-school deals, the parties are full of free jungle juice, and rolling into class wearing last night's makeup is not uncommon.

Syllabus week presents the perfect opportunity to turn over a new leaf. Were you late to almost every class last semester? Did you stop reading the assigned homework after the first week? Did you procrastinate a little too much? Make this the semester that you resolve to get to class on time, do your homework, pay attention, and snag the perfect seat on the first day.

And still, the best part of Syllabus Week is getting to reunite with all your friends. You're all back from a several week long break, there's nothing to do except catch up and get wine drunk, and nobody bails because they're too busy writing a last minute paper or cramming for an exam!

That being said, get out there! Have a great start to your semester, kick back and relax while you have the chance, and drink some pink moscato. Thank you, 'sylly' week, for being the best.


A Thankful College Student

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.


Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
