Why I Continue To Fall For Fall

An ode to my favorite season.

Why I Continue To Fall For Fall

Finally, the seasons are changing. While searing humidity draped over us for months on end, we're now being beckoned with the warm embrace of fall's crisp, understated beauty. For some, this is bittersweet, as summer is worth appreciating for the many pleasures and delightful opportunities that it presents. Change, however, is inevitable, so we might as well welcome it. I find myself to be very satisfied with the onset of a fresh season, for a variety of reasons!

The staple fall activities are, honestly, some of the best. Whether or not you can stand cooler weather is beside the point, because if you don't go apple picking, pumpkin picking, cider drinking, bon-firing, leaf pile leaping, pie eating, hiking, tailgating, haunted house hopping, or hay riding, you'll probably be feeling a little cheated! No matter what, the classic fall activities are, if nothing else, extra reasons to enjoy yourself.

One specific thing that I like to do, in the months of October and November in particular, is take drives and explore different locations. While this can be fun during any season (other than winter... probably) the colorful, fragrant atmosphere that autumn provides is simply nice and inviting. Unlike other times of the year, the fall months have a distinct serenity in them that tends to make contentment an easy reach. Go find your inner coolness this month!

Possibly the most important thing to do this fall, whoever and wherever you are, is to take extra time to live in the moment. Enjoy the warmth of hot drinks in the cold, the gray skies, the falling leaves, and the final show of nature before snow and ice blanket everything for a handful of slow-passing, sleepy months. You'll be feeling nostalgic for those fall days shortly after they're gone and in the past.

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple.
