Nothing makes me happier than when the leaves begin to change, the weather starts to cool down and the holiday season approaches. As much as I hate to admit it, when October rolls around I can't help but channel my inner basic-white girl. Here are 8 basic things we all hate to admit we love about the fall season.

1. Pumpkin everything-Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin candles, and of course-pumpkin spice lattes. In fact, from October through December, you can fully expect my house to be smelling like a full-blown autumn walk. And be prepared for the extreme amounts of snapchats and instagrams of coffee drinks with cute little designs in the foam.

2. Christmas music-Cue J-Bieb's "Mistletoe". Christmas music brings back nostalgic feelings of happiness for most people, hence why I play it every chance I get once December rolls around (or maybe even late November).

3. Going to a pumpkin patch-Another must in the fall season is going to a pumpkin patch (and documenting it with a fun and flirty insta, of course).

4. Carving pumpkins- Carving pumpkins is a fun, fall festivity for family or with a group of friends. The pumpkins make for cute Halloween decorations and the seeds make for a delicious snack.

5. Breaking out the winter clothes-While summer clothing is fun, it's always a relief when you get to store away the bikinis and shorts and break out big sweaters, boots, beanies, and scarves. Winter fashion is cozier, looser, and overall more comfortable. It's also finally acceptable to be pale, which is a blessing in itself.

6. Christmas lights-Christmas lights are a surefire way to start getting in the holiday spirit. When restaurants and other public places start putting up their Christmas lights, that's when you can really start getting excited. Stringing lights on the tree, the outside of the house, and even in your room is a great way to bring the magic of Christmas right to your own living space.

7. Uggs and leggings-a classic white girl look. It's basic, I know, but leggings, uggs, and a big sweatshirt are the comfiest, easiest go-to outfit when the weather gets cold.

8. Spending time with family-Finally, the holidays are some of the best times you spend with your family, carrying out traditions that have been in place since you were a little kid. Whether it's decorating the tree while making hot cocoa or going on an early morning hike on Christmas morning, the Holiday season is my favorite time of the year as it truly brings family together.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
