My friends and I are the type of people who enjoy fall to the fullest. We could be compared to the Tumblr mood boards created for Autumn and Halloween. We welcome the season with cheer, but I do welcome Halloween with more cheer than my friends do for Christmas.

There's so much to do in this Halloween and fall season, and my friends and I try to do it all. All the cliches that are said to be done within the holiday come true with us. Welcome to the way my friends and I do fall.

Fall has always been my favorite season, it brings a nice chill but it isn't so bad that I freeze my butt off. I enjoy fall for all that it brings; the leaves changing, the pumpkin patches, the Halloween season. Fall is the time where I can enjoy sitting with a good book and warm tea in a cozy part of my room.

Fall is when I do the most thrift shopping. It's when my friends and I can be found browsing the aisles of record and bookshops. It's also the time we invade Walmart for their smartly prices Halloween snacks and candy.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, I think I've mentioned that in an article or two. The Halloween season is when I get the most creative. I like decorating for Halloween, but I also like creating my own costumes.

So far I have three costumes for HalloWEEK (since Halloween is on a Wednesday, I will be celebrating the weekend before and after) and they are all made from basically scratch. My entire friend group decided on a group costume of The Wizard of Oz, but I am also doing two partner costumes; Spongebob and Patrick with my roommate and Netflix and Chill with my friend Megan. I celebrate Halloween in a lot of ways other than outfits though.

I celebrate it with going to Haunted Theme Parks as well as the scary movie openings that happen in October. I also use this time of the year to watch new and disturbing TV shows that have come out just for the Halloween. I love the spooky season so much and it sucks that it is almost over.

"I love to go Apple and pumpkin picking with friends and family. I love finally getting to pull out fall clothes (even though fall seemed to last two minutes in Ithaca). Hot Apple cider or some hot chocolate is always a perfect way to end a cold day."

"One of my favorite things to do is go on walks, but nothing is better than a walk in the fall. The leaves crunch beneath your feet. The wind blows with a certain freshness and a chill foreshadowing the months to come. Trees pop with warm colors, creating the perfect views for a fall walk to a calming playlist."

"I love the feeling of walking outside and immediately getting hit with a brisk chill. I love the cool weather without the addition of snow and all of the activities that come with Fall. Pumpkin carving is my favorite thing to do in the fall by far. I also adore pumpkin pie, and everything else to do with pumpkin."

"Fall is my favorite season. There's just something about the changing colors and the biting temperatures that are undeniably alluring. I love drinking hot mulled cider and wearing all my sweaters. Autumn is also a perfect time for baking! I made Halloween macarons the other day and will probably do the same for Thanksgiving!"

Thank you fall for all the things you bring, it's so sad to think you will be leaving soon. Once the cold air hits, I shall never leave my room. I will call it hibernation and welcome my fuzzy old blanket like an old friend.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
