Goodbye Summer Sixteen, Hello Fall!

Socks and Birkenstocks, Cooler Weather, and Good TV.

Goodbye Summer Sixteen, Hello Fall!
Her Campus

At the start of Summer Sixteen, I had such high expectations. Did any of them become reality? Nope. Instead of taking road trips every weekend to the beach, I worked at a summer camp and gained 10 pounds. I'm hoping that fall will be better to me because I'm so done with 150-degree weather every day. With the official start of the fall season, I am excited about so many things. Here are a few:

1. Temperature change

As mentioned beforehand, I AM DONE with summer weather. What's the point of applying the perfect foundation with the perfect highlight if it's all gonna melt off while I walk miserably to class pretending everything is okay? EXACTLY.

An accurate depiction of me walking to class:

2. Good Tv Is BACK!

Though summer tv does it for some people, I need my Fall TV line-up back asap. I mean I need Rick Grimes killing zombies, Annalise Keating covering up more murders, Meredith Grey avoiding death and giving me life! YAS, IT'S LIT!

3. Fall Colors

I love lipstick. It's just kinda my thing. But the summer color lipsticks and my skin tone just end up clashing over and over again but my fall colors never let me down. I'm talking burgundy, brown, deep purple, I just shed a tear.

4. Time change

Clocks go back an hour. More. Sleep. Need I say more?

5. Sweater Weather!!!!!!!

Burr, it's cold in here. Not actually cold but not hot and that means it's okay to wear a sweater. Sweaters are my favorite thing. You can either dress them up or dress them down and that's all I ever look for in outfit choices.

6. Socks and Birkenstocks

You might be thinking socks and sandals are never okay. How could you even use them in the same sentence? But socks and Birkenstocks is something totally different, totally beautiful, and totally acceptable.

7. Halloween

The college girl's favorite holiday. You can dress up as a sexy nurse, sexy cheerleader, sexy cop, sexy anything while binge eating large amounts of airheads and tootsie rolls. Halloween is awesome.

8. Thanksgiving

Turkey, chicken, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, green beans in casserole form, baked macaroni, etc. and a few days off from work and/or school to let it all digest while watching football. Amazing.

9. Election Day

LOL, jk. No but seriously, you should probably go vote this year, it's super important. No? Okay.

10. One season closer to Christmas!

Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. I get so excited just thinking about everything like the end of fall semester classes, Freeform's 25 days of Christmas (it will always be ABC Family to me), decorating the Christmas tree and baking cookies/making gingerbread houses with family.

So let's get excited about Fall! It looks like it's going to be a very promising one!

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.
