Lex Fall Fun Activities

I love fall so much it is one of the prettiest times of the year. This year, fall looks a little different because of COVID-19 but it does not mean there are not still fun fall things to do. It can be hard right now to find fall themed adventures but there is still plenty of fall themed things that can be done near Lexington while still social distancing. So grab your roommates and friends and check out some of these local fall things.

The Arboretum


The Arboretum which is right off The University of Kentucky Campus is a beautiful park full of acres of nature. It is great for a nice fall walk as the trees begin to change and the leaves start to fall. It can be a fun fall place to take a nice stroll with roommates and friends even maybe snap a few fun fall pictures.

Drive down Kentucky Backroads


The backroads near Lexington are beautiful year round but are especially beautiful around the fall time. When the leaves start to change to roads give off a picturesque backdrop and it is even more beautiful once you see the horses in the back. A nice fall drive through Lexington can be super fun tp do with the right people and right playlist.

Visit nearby Pumpkin Farms


There are so many great pumpkin farms near Lexington as well as orchards for apple picking. Some of these great places include but are not limited to; Evans Orchard, Eckerts Orchard and Buckmeadow Farms. Each of these offer different unique fall finds. Some have hayrides and apple picking. Others have corn mazes and petting farms. Do some research and there is bound to be one that has what you are looking for.

Keeneland Fall Meets


Keeneland fall meets are still up in the air because of covid-19 but fall meets take place all of October. They run on the weekends Friday-Sunday. These are super fun too do with friends because you get to get super dressed up in fall entire and bet on horse races.

Visit a Haunted House


There are still a couple nearby haunted houses offering unique haunted experiences even thru covid. One of these is the Wicked World Scaregrounds. This one offers three unique haunted houses and still as tickets available for the rest of fall. Check out if on oof these interests you as well as fall up there might be some other houses offering scares during covid.

Fall Hikes


Kentucky is a beautiful state offering plenty of hiking opportunities. These hikes will look even more beautiful once the leaves begin to change. Check out Lexington locals like Raven Run and McConnell Springs. For a longer drive check out Red River Gorge. There are so many hiking opportunities near and far from Lexington to check out this fall.

Kentucky Castle Fall Events


The Kentucky Castle is known for having serval events throughout the year and the fall does not disappoint. This fall they are offering a Murder Mystery Dinners on select nights. They also are offering a Pumpkin Spice TeaTime and an Octoberfest pairing dinner. Check out The Kentucky Castle because I am sure they will continue to update with more fall events.

DIY Halloween Decorations


This one is not a local Lexington thing but a general fun fall activity. There are plenty of fall DIY crafts and decorations on the internet that would be super fun to do with friends and roommates. Even carving or painting pumpkins is a fun way to get in the fall mood.

Watch Halloween Movies


There are so many great halloween themed movies that are kid friendly and plenty of scary movies. If you are like me and have almost every steaming service then you are bound to find a movie that fills your fall needs.

Cook Fall Foods


I love all things fall especially fall food. Pumpkin spice is the best this time of year and why not have some fun with it and find recipes that you could make and try. It could be fun to do while watching a Halloween movie or making Halloween crafts.

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.

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.
