Fall Favorites To Look Forward To

As August comes to a close, so does summer. September means back to school and time to get back into that fall mindset. The weather is getting a bit colder and the sun is setting a bit earlier, but not everything about summer ending is bad. If you’re anything like me, fall is your vice. Being my favorite season, I was never too sad to see fall emerge and summer fall behind. From great weather, to good clothes, to the holidays, fall is always a season to look forward to. Here a just a few of my personal fall favorites.

1. The Best Clothes

Nothing beats fall fashion, in my opinion. Not only is it the most comfortable season but fall clothing is easy to put together, while still looking like you spent time getting ready. Throwing on some leggings, boots, and an over-sized sweater is not only easy, but also a cute outfit that you’ll be comfortable in all day. Flannels, boots, beanies, sweaters; fall clothes are one of the best parts of the season.

2. School Starting

Some people may not find this to be a favorite of fall, but it is for me. I love moving back into to school, seeing all my friends, and getting back into the school mindset. Fall semester is something to look forward too, especially as summer starts to end.

3. Pumpkin Spiced Everything

As basic as it may be, it’s hard to deny how much you love the pumpkin spice trend. From coffee to candles, this trend is starting to define fall. Nothing makes Monday morning better than grabbing a pumpkin spice latte from Dunks on my way to class.

4. No More Humidity = Great Hair Days

For everyone who lives the frizzy hair lifestyle in the summer, you can agree with me that fall is your friend. Summer humidity is gone and now you can finally go outside without having to worry if your lion mane will emerge. Honestly, no humidity may be my favorite part of the fall. The weather is not too hot not too cold, basically the perfect temperature.

5. Football Season

One of my personal favorites of fall, football season. Tailgates are in full effect and weekly games are essential to the season. Nothing better than grabbing a beer and putting on your favorite team’s jersey for a day of football.

6. Pumpkin & Apple Picking

No matter how old I get, going pumpkin and apple picking will always be one of my favorite parts of fall. I will never get sick of going in corn mazes, or taking hay rides, or drinking apple cider on a hay bale among 5 year olds.

7. Fall Scenery

As cliché as it may be, there really is nothing more beautiful than the fall scenery. The leaves start to change color and everyday seems to be the perfect temperature.

8. The Holidays

With fall comes Halloween and Thanksgiving, two of my personal favorite holidays. Halloween, whether you are two or 20 is always exciting, probably for different reasons but alas exciting. ABC Family’s 13 nights of Halloween basically takes over my life and I have no shame about that. Thanksgiving is a great time to go home and see your family for a few days and take a break from school. And of course, fall means it’s getting closer and closer to Christmas, the actual best time of the year!

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.
