6 Fall Activities For You And Your Roommate
Start writing a post

I'm declaring it fall time even if the calendar (and weather) isn't. Fall is one of the best seasons by far but it seems to be the time all these stories about taking your significant other out on cute fall dates. Well, some of us are single and don't wanna go do cute fall activities by ourselves. So, who's going to know you just as well as a boyfriend and is probably more willing to go to a pumpkin patch? Your roommates.

1. Apple picking


Yeah, going to a pumpkin patch is all fun and stuff but have you ever been apple picking? It's 100x more fun and it's all you can eat apples in the middle of the orchard. There's apple cider and corn mazes, which are just the best things ever in the fall. Plus, you two can plan an apple recipe to bake back at your dorm or apartment.

2. Shopping for Halloween decorations


When it's time to get spooky, you're going to wanna decorate so might as well go with the gal you share a whole ass area with. Check out the local, obscure pop-up Halloween store for creepy decorations or, heck, check out the Dollar Store to spook up your space on a budget.

3. Watch scary films


Good chance is you two are probably a bit creep out by scary films but even better is you'll probably spend the whole movie talking. If you two are uncomfortable with the scary elements of the film, you can just spend your time joking about it to lighten the mood. Perfect time to also eat some pumpkin bread.

4. Pumpkin spice latte run


You're never more impulsive than when you're hanging with your roommate. The best impulse decision is a nice afternoon Starbucks run for some pumpkin spice lattes. They're delicious and the adventure to get to Starbucks is just as fun.

5. Friendsgiving


As a little nod to Thanksgiving being during the autumn time, a great activity to play with your roommate (plus more friends) is a little personal Friendsgiving. Everyone can do their best to make a side (or purchase one from your local supermarket) and have a quaint dinner.

6. Candle shopping


Sounds a little bit weird but the best thing about fall is all the fall scents at Bath & Body Works. I swear, I am not insane it really is the best time ever walking into the store and heading for all the pumpkin scents. Besides, every room needs too many apple pumpkin scented candles.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
