I'm The Republican Woman Who Has The #ChristianGirlAutumn Aesthetic, But I'm No Racist

Fall is my favorite season, and I am not ashamed to say that. The leaves changing colors and falling to the ground so I can hear them crunch as I walk over them makes my heart skip with joy. I also love anything pumpkin-flavored, but only in small doses. PSL's are fine and dandy every once in a while, but I'd much rather drink an iced coffee with a shot of pumpkin syrup.

You could say I'm just like the rest of the world when it comes to the fall season, but I don't see it.

So many people have traded blanket scarves for scrunchies and chunky sweaters for oversized tie-dye T-shirts.

Not this girl.

I will gladly wear a vest and booties any day of my life, and you probably couldn't catch me dead in a T-shirt that covers the length of my shorts.

The whole joke about #ChristianGirlAutumn started as a way to mock white women and the way they dress and present themselves.

I am a white woman, and I am not offended by it at all, because it's true. If someone doesn't like the way I dress or present myself, that's on them, not on me.

Being a #ChristianGirlAutumn kinda girl also doesn't mean I am a blatant racist and anti-LGBTQ. This is far from the truth. Yes, I am a Christian and conservative, but that doesn't mean I think the same as all the old white men in Washington D.C.

So, I will continue to curl my hair, wear blanket scarves and J.Crew vests with just about every outfit, in addition to having a Starbucks cup in my hand at (almost) all times.

And when summertime hits, you can bet I'll be wearing Lilly Pulitzer and Jack Rogers every day.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
