5 Reasons Why I'll Miss Being In My Hometown For Fall

Fall in New England is hands down the best time of year. No questions asked.


Although I love being in a city for college it certainly doesn't go through the same seasonal change that occurs back home.

1. Watching the seasons change.

A sure way to tell in New England that summer is over and fall is officially here is by watching the leaves change from a vibrant green to shades of oranges, reds, and yellows. Being in the city with very limited access to trees not seeing the leaves change leaves me feeling seasonally confused.

2. Apple picking!

When apple picking season is in full swing there is nothing better than getting bundled up and bringing home a pound of fresh apples to make apple pie, apple crumble, apple EVERYTHING.

3. Similarly to apples, apple cider and apple cider donuts will be missed. 

Being in Connecticut there was nothing better than going to a nearby farm and stocking up on the best fall snacks aka apple cider and apple cider donuts. Hands down, the best type of apple product.

4. Fresh, crisp, autumn air. 


Is it possible to miss a certain type of air? I think so. Whenever I'm waiting to cross the street and get a whiff of the subway smell or walking by a pile of garbage waiting to be picked up it makes me miss the fresh, oxygenated fall air of New England just a little.

5. Beautiful fall car rides/hikes.


Last but not least fall foliage car rides are always the best. Driving through the state to look at the beautiful sights of fall or hiking through the woods and experiencing this season right before your eyes is nothing short of amazing.

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.
