Fall is finally here and I could not be happier! Fall is without a doubt my favorite season, the most wonderful time of the year. Here are my top five reasons that make fall the best season of them all.

1. The Weather

It's phenomenal. It’s not too hot, but also not too cold, so you can be comfortable outside in jeans and a long sleeve shirt or, my personal favorite, over-sized sweaters and sweatshirts, which allow you to be comfortable all the time, even when you have to be out and about. It’s the time of the year that fashion shines through, because you can dress cute without fear of being too hot.

2. Halloween

The time to dress as someone different, the one night a year to be someone that you aren't! You get the opportunity to pass out candy to little kids dressed in the sweetest little outfits. It's time for Halloween movies, whether you are a scary movie fan, or if you are like me, where Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown will be on repeat all month long. Plus, all the mini candy bars and candy corn you can possibly eat!

3. The Sky

I love taking pictures, and for me there is no better time of the year to take them than in the fall. From the leaves scattered and falling from the trees, to the pumpkins and bonfires - the colors are magnificent. The sun sets earlier, but it’s not so bad because the sunsets get even more beautiful. With beautiful orange and red colors painting the sky, there’s no doubt that fall sunsets are the best of all.

4. The Food

As it gets cooler outside, the food gets better. The drinks get hotter, too, and it’s the best to come home after a long day and drink apple cider, coffee, or hot chocolate and just relax. Also, of course, the Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks...Then comes a flood of pumpkin EVERYTHING, from pies to pumpkin rolls and pumpkin seeds. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. In a month, it's time for Thanksgiving, which is of course the best food of the year, because it means leftovers for weeks after!

5. The Activities

Fall definitely has the best activities, such as haunted houses, ghost tours, hayrides, football games and pumpkin patches. One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to go to a Pumpkin Patch and pick out a pumpkin to carve or paint. My friends and I usually have pumpkin painting parties, complete with food and all. I love fall nights spent with family around a fire, talking and laughing and sharing a big blanket and drinking apple cider.

Fall is the season for spending time with family and friends. It's my favorite time of the year to have camp outs and bonfires and just enjoy each other's company.

Most importantly, fall is the time for change. The leaves begin to turn and fall from the trees leaving them bare and it’s the time to reflect on the year as it begins to come to a close. It's time to begin saying goodbye to this year, and saying hello to a new year; one full of adventures and new memories to be made.

So Hello Fall, glad you're finally here.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
