Fall semester is starting, and the temperatures are finally starting to dip down in the mornings and evenings. You know what that means? There are plenty of things coming up we get to look forward to! (And no, none of them have to do with classes starting up).

1. Football Games

Okay, so this kind of has to do with classes. Everyone gets to see their favorite teams play, tailgate with the friends, and have an even better excuse to have a beer on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. But let's face it; if you're not rooting for the Owls, are you even watching football?

2. Haunted Houses

My favorite thing, ever. I love some haunted houses. Whether you're going to Camp Blood, Netherworld, or even just enjoying Six Flags this fall, there are plenty of opportunities for someone to scare the crap out of you. (Only hopefully, not literally).

3. Bonfires

The best nights are those around a firepit, with a warm glass of apple cider, just handing out with friends and listening to nature.

4. Camping Trip

This can tie in with bonfires, but fall is the best time to go camping! Not only is the temperature perfect for it, but all the bugs are dying and going back to where ever the hell they came from! No, there is no swimming, but there is nothing like roasting marshmallows on the said bonfire and then sleeping under the stars!

5. Semi-Formals

This is for all you Greeks out there, I know you're all looking forward to those semi-formal nights; whether it is for the drinks, the food, or seeing your date looking extra sexy, I'll leave that part up to you!

6. State Fairs

Everyone loves a good state fair! The rides may be sketchy, but that food is always kicking. Deep fried Oreos are my favorite, and they go perfectly with a homemade strawberry wine or lemonade!

7. Rodeos

Cowboys. Wranglers. Horses. 'Nuff said.

8. Amusement Parks

Yes, you can go all year round. But can you enjoy it without either A: freezing your ass off; or B: sweating your ass off. No, I didn't think so. (Plus there are always fall or Halloween themed events to look forward to!)

9. Corn Mazes

To this day, I have never been to a corn maze. I would love to go sometime, but they weren't popular where I was raised and since I've lived in Georgia, I have gotten sick every time we have tried to go to one. Maybe it's a sign the Children of the Corn are trying to give me.

10. Scary Movies

They always come out with new scary movies in fall, and who doesn't love to be scared? Go see Annabelle: Creation, IT, or Jigsaw this fall and tell me you didn't scream your head off after. No worries, I know you're lying ahead of time.

11. Costume Shopping

This is an event all on its own and anyone who argues with me is lying.

12. Go to Halloween Horror Nights, specifically.

If you have not been, you have not experienced a truly horrific time. Multiple haunted houses and mazes, plus scare zones through out Universal? I cried the first time I went, mostly because I was 12 but if it helps you feel better when you start crying, don't remind yourself I was so young.

13. Halloween Parties

Only the best time to dress however you want, be whoever you want, and show Joe that you really do look like a girl outside of your Lab class.Damn those safety rules about clothing and shoes. (No attire rules at Halloween parties!)

Fall is definitely the best time of the year, and these aren't even all of your options!

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.
