Fall Is In The Air

The best season of the year has finally returned.

Fall Is In The Air

Football is back, school supplies are on sale and pumpkin-flavored food is on every aisle of the grocery store. This can only mean one thing: Autumn has officially returned. It’s time for the hot, humid weather to halt. It’s time to send your sandals and bathing suits to the back of the closet and take back out your leggings, scarves, and boots. It’s time for baseball to end and football to start, and it is time to take a break from the ice cream and watermelon. Fall is by far the best part of the year.

Fall has the best weather.

No season can compare to the weather that autumn brings. Spring is filled with rainy days, summer is dominated by the scorching heat and winter is controlled by frost bite and snow. Fall, however, is the closest thing to perfect. It is the much-needed transitional season that brings a relief from the heat of summer and allows one to ease into the cold of winter. Fall brings a brisk air that hovers over at all times and changes the leaves on the trees to create beautiful and breathtaking scenery.

Fall has the best sport: football.

Football, America’s true pastime, is one of the best parts of the autumn season. There’s nothing like the relationships formed during tailgates or the roar of the crowd in a packed stadium. Football is one of the most thrilling sports, whether you are cheering on your favorite team from the nosebleeds or standing on the sidelines. One sack of the quarterback can change the whole momentum of the game, and a perfectly spiraled, 50-yard pass to the wide receiver is truly a beautiful sight to see. No other sport can touch “The Boys of Fall.”

Fall has the best food: pumpkin.

Pumpkin—need I say more? Pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin yogurt, pumpkin oatmeal, and the list goes on and on. No other time of the year can I get my favorite flavor in basically every food imaginable. There is nothing else that smells as heavenly as pumpkin does as it bakes in the oven. My taste buds crave pumpkin every autumn after being deprived for 9 months out the year.

Fall lets us wear the best clothes.

Scarves, boots and oversized sweaters: Fall is full of cute clothes that also happen to be extremely comfortable. Fall is the only season you can wear leggings every day and get away with it. It is not cold enough where you have to wear a heavy jacket that will cover your outfit, but it is still cool enough to wear a comfortable, warm sweater.

Fall is the best season of the year. Nothing can compare to an October football game with a cool breeze and colorful trees, or enjoying a pumpkin muffin while wearing a cozy sweater and boots. Fall is back, so enjoy it while you can. It will be gone before you know it.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
