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.

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.

States such as Kentucky have closed all of their restaurants, schools, and businesses until December. Some governors have started to advise caution when celebrating the holidays, too. You may be thinking, 'is there any way to really enjoy Christmas during the pandemic?' In fact, there are ways to still celebrate the holiday safely. Here are 10 ways that you can still enjoy the holiday season without canceling any of your plans.

How The 'Friends' Theme Song Is Actually Describing 2020 — And It Couldn't BE More Accurate

This isn't our day, our week, our month, and definitely not our year...


Everyone knows the iconic Friends theme song and although we may have joked in previous years how relatable it is, here's a breakdown of the lyrics and how they are so 2020, we might never be able to listen to it again after 2020.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.
