Fun Fall Festivities

Fall is my favorite season - the weather is perfect, nothing is (for the most part) too busy yet, and the scenery is incredible. It's not too cold or hot to be stuck inside- so get out and take advantage of it! It's perfect for continuing traditions or even starting new ones. The holidays are approaching faster than you think, and spending time with family and friends is a must. Here are some ideas on what to do during the fall:

1. Pick apples at Johnson's Farm or Solebury Orchards

2. Go on a hike in Manayunk at the Towpath park or the Peace Valley Nature Center in Doylestown

3. Go for a picnic in a nearby park

4. Walk around Olde City (and snap a couple pictures)

5. Pick pumpkins at Heritage Vineyards

6. Go on a hayride at Highland Orchards or Indian Acres

7. House a bonfire with hot dogs, s'mores, hot chocolate, and warm apple cider.

8. Go thrift shopping for big sweaters and cool knick knacks at Good Will in Reading or the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Monmouth County

9. Go to a corn maze at Howell Farm or even a nighttime flashlight maze at Springdale Farms

10. Watch classic Halloween movies like Hocus Pocus or Disney Channel's Halloweentown

11. Make fall treats like caramel apples, pumpkin bars, or mini s'mores boats

12. Walk around your own neighborhood and look for bright colors and fun fall plants or trees- beauty is never far

13. Paint, photograph, or draw a landscape of the fall leaves and trees

14. Visit a haunted house or haunted hayride at Eastern State Penitentiary or Creamy Acres

15. Go to Longwood Gardens and embrace the plants in season

16. Watch scary movies like Ouija or Insidious 1, 2, and 3

17. Carve jack-o-lanterns

18. Practice recipes for the holiday season like Christmas cookies or Thanksgiving pies

19. Go to a high school or college football game

20. Shop new fall fashions at places like Charlotte Russe, American Eagle, or Nike

21. Go to an outdoor concert- it's always better and much more enjoyable when you're not sweating out every ounce of water left in your body

22. Get work done and get ahead- not everything in school (or work occasionally) is in full swing yet, so get moving! You'll thank yourself later!

23. Decorate your house with fall decorations and fall fragrances

And of course, 24. Go trick-or-treating!

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.
