5 Things To Like About Fall Semesters

There are a lot of things that I'm going to miss about fall semesters.


I'm not leaving Villanova University just yet, but this was my last fall semester. Both semesters have some great things, but here are some things I'm going to miss about fall semester as a college student.

1. Orientation

Ah yes, those three days where most of the people are probably lost freshmen. You can't forget about the OCs in the bright colored t-shirts and their mascots. Personally, I found being an upperclassman during Orientation Week is much more fun than being a freshman. That probably comes with you know, having friends from the beginning. (On a side note, I would recommend participating the Diversity Skit- you make a great impact on the freshmen and you get to meet some chill but intelligent people.)

2. Activities Fair 

Otherwise known as that fun time where many of the clubs pull out all the stops to grab new members. From the judo club letting people flip their members to the men's swim club parading around on someone's shoulders with a sign, everyone's bound to sign up for at least one new club.

3. Warm weather

Thank global warming for this one- the warm weather stays out for longer during the fall semester so that's the time to enjoy the sun and the campus.

4. Catching up

Yeah, you get to catch up with people after winter break, but it's not the same you know. If winter break feels like a long time to be away from school, then summer vacation feels like forever and ever.

5. Overall feeling of hope

Fall semester for me has always been the semester of new beginnings for me. Maybe it's just the fact that it's a new school year so people seem more open to new things and new people, regardless of the year. Not that spring semester, new things can't happen, just that well, it just feels a little less awkward joining in at the beginning of the year rather than in the middle.

Still, there are always great things in the spring semester so I suppose we'll just have to take it as we come, huh?

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
