9 Reasons Fall Vibes Are The Best Vibes
Start writing a post

The summer is quickly coming to an end. While some people might be sad that the summer is coming to a close, I am quite happy. While I do enjoy summer, I cannot wait for the leaves to change, the temperature to drop, and those glorious fall holidays to come back. Here are a few reasons why fall is the best season of the year, in no particular order.

1. The new beginnings 


To me there is nothing quite as satisfying as going school supply shopping. Maybe it's the chance to start again, knowing that what you did last semester does not determine how successful you will be this semester, or maybe it's just because I love having brand new notebooks and pens to take notes with. Either way, there is something about it that leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to take on the new semester and embrace the new season.

2. The leaves changing color 


I love walking out of my house or out of an academic building and seeing the leaves in all different colors. Along with the leaves falling, the temperature falls too. Because of these two things, it makes me want to be outside a lot more than I was outside during the summer. I have spent hours outside before in the nice cool fall weather studying on the quad and genuinely loving every minute of it because of the atmosphere.

3. Halloween 


Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays of the fall. No matter what age you are, you are never too old to celebrate whether you celebrate by a Halloween party, trick-or-treating, or my personal favorite going to discount candy after the holiday is over. Even if you don't do anything, settle in with a scary movie and some dollar store candy (yes it's the same kind of candy just cheaper!)

4. Football


Now I am not a huge football fan. I don't have a specific team that I root for. With that being said, I have always loved going to football games in high school. I think it was the sense of community that was at the game, but also my alma mater had a really good football team and we won a lot.

5. Going to the pumpkin patch


I love going to the pumpkin patch, walking around, taking cute photos for Instagram, and then ultimately finding a pumpkin that I can carve. I would be grateful if my pumpkin turns out half as well as the one in the picture above. It's a great activity for people of all ages and is a family-friendly event!

6. Thanksgiving


I love Thanksgiving. Not only because you get to spend time with your family while eating great food, but also because it is so close to when winter break is. Students go from Thanksgiving break back to school and have a couple of weeks before they are back home for winter break. Not to mention watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has become a tradition with my family.

7. Fall fashion


I love fall fashion. I love being able to go to class with a hoodie and leggings and feel just as comfortable as if I was wearing pajamas to class. The fashion and the colors of the clothing are great and honestly make me so happy.

8. 13 Nights of Halloween


On Freeform, still more commonly known as ABC family, they always have the 13 Nights of Halloween every October. They play movies such as Twitches, Hocus Pocus and so many more classic Halloween movies. For me this sets the tone of everything to come and it makes me so happy. No matter how many times I see some of these classics, they never get old.

9. Perfect weather for Netflix binges


With the weather cool, it is the perfect opportunity to open up the windows, turn on your favorite Netflix show, grab a cozy blanket and maybe some tea or hot chocolate and settle in for the night and binge watch.

These are just a few reasons that I love fall. Let me know down in the comments below; what is your favorite season and why?

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
