Fall, You're the Real MVP

An open letter to the best season of them all.

Fall, You're the Real MVP

Dear Fall,

It may not even be mid-September, but I am jumping for joy that the best season of the year is approaching. The minute the air feels cool and crisp, the brain automatically registers that PSL season is upon us. I have the sudden urge to go to Home Goods and buy pumpkin scented candles, make pumpkin bread and drink hot apple cider. But mostly, the urge to drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes every damn day prevails. It’s finally acceptable to drink fall flavored beverages without judgment. 

With the changing weather, comes the changing fashion. Fall, you make life so easy. What more could one honestly ask for from a season that requires an outfit of leggings, boots and a gigantic sweater and scarf combination. Being clothed in a giant wool blanket and tights has never been so fashion forward than it is in the fall.    

Fall, thank you for allowing us to do activities that are meant for children every year, such as hayrides and pumpkin picking. Nothing says fall like a great Instagram of the pumpkin patch. 

What could be better than the comeback of a season that brings with it all of the holidays that involve eating stuffing your face? Halloween gives us the chance to dress up for a week, and also is the time of year that produces the best candy. Pumpkin-shaped Reeses and candy corns galore. If you’re smart and can pull it off, trick-or-treating can still be a thing.  After this candy fest comes turkey day. Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest drinking night of the year. Reuniting at your hometown bar with all of your friends (or frenemies) from high school? Sounds horrible, but it is the biggest drinking night of the year so you must go! This is followed by the second best holiday of the year. What is more comforting of a holiday than Thanksiving? The answer is Christmas, but the great thing about that is that the return of fall means the return of CHRISTMAS is right around the corner. Thanksgiving rocks because you wake up early to the smell of food and you go to sleep dreaming of food. Thanks, Fall, for turkey and tryptophan. 

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though. Thanks, Fall, for bringing us football tailgates (if you go to a school where that’s a thing). Even if it’s not a thing at your school (looking at you, nova nation) the return of football means the return of eating wings, drinking beer and screaming at the television (or pretending you care about sports). What could honestly be more wonderful? 

The return of the fall also means the return of all good television. After suffering through a summer of Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelorette and Dating Naked, the fall arrives with the comebacks of Revenge, Scandal, The Big Bang Theory, Greys Anatomy and so much more. I hope you finished your binge-watching, readers, because it’s about to be a wild ride. 

Thanks,Fall, for being the season with the best weather, the best food, the best smelling items and for being so close to Christmas.

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.

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.
