8 Fall Dates College Kids Actually Have Time For Between 8 AMs, Naps, And Tailgating

Skip the haunted house, bake cookies instead.


Let's admit it: we're all completely basic and want to go on cute Fall dates with our bae. Between hayrides, college football games, carving pumpkins, we want it all. But as badly as I want to go through a super-overrated haunted house, as a college student, I don't necessarily have the time to wait in line for 2 hours just to spend 15 minutes in haunted house that wouldn't necessarily be scary without the over-use of strobe lights.

Just because college students don't have time for traditional fall dates doesn't mean that we should miss out completely. There are still so many cute and quick Fall dates that work perfectly with our crazy busy first semester schedule.

Here are 8 Fall dates that even the busiest college student can fit in:

1. Bake Pillsbury sugar cookies

These cuties take less than 15 minutes to make and taste like heaven. Cuddle up with your bae and a cup of hot apple cider and enjoy!

2. Watch college football together

While we may not be able to go to every single game, we'll definitely still be watching every game on TV. Why not turn it into a date? Blankets + popcorn and you're good.

3. Coffee shop study date

We're gonna have to get our studying in either way. Might as well do it with a cutie and Venti PSL and Chai Latte by our side.

4. Paint pumpkins

Traditional pumpkin carvings require far too much time (and energy for the clean up process). Save yourself the hassle and settle for some cute and creative painted pumpkins instead.

5. Go for a fall drive

No destination required as long as there's nothing but orange leaves on the trees.

6. Cider tasting

Have a DIY wine tasting night! Complete with all of your favorite ciders.

7. Have a picnic

Put on your cutest fall outfit, pack a picnic basket, and head out to enjoy the perfect, crisp fall air, a delicious meal, and some sweet company.

8. Visit the local farmers market

You'll need to get your veggies either way, might as well turn it into a date. I hear they sell flowers, too (wink, wink).

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.
