How To Maximize The Pumpkin in Your Life This Fall

Bringing the most of pumpkin spice, scents, candles, and cookies into your life.

How To Maximize The Pumpkin in Your Life This Fall

As you walk through campus, you might start to notice a brisk breeze, the crunch of red leaves beneath your feet, and some sweaters popping on. These, my friend, are key indicators of Fall being in the air. Once Fall is in full swing, it's time to break out the pumpkin, well, everything.

Bourbon Pumpkin Candle from Target

Personally, I think that a pumpkin scented candle keeps the home warm and cozy, almost as if a scent could give you a hug. The bourbon pumpkin candle from Target acts like the warm homecoming you've always wanted when you walk through the door. When the strong pumpkin scent hits your nose, you automatically feel at home and like Fall is going to bring so many blessings into your life this year.

Decorative Pumpkins (Also from Target, duh)

While browsing the aisles of my local Target, I came across these pumpkin decorations that I knew would add such a cozy Fall feeling to my apartment. I ended up purchasing a small ceramic white pumpkin for my kitchen island, a rust-color squash for my coffee table, and a pale orange medium pumpkin for a centerpiece on top of my refrigerator. I must say, having these tasteful pieces has really spruced up my Fall spirits and made my place feel a little bit more like a pumpkin wonderland.

Pumpkin Cookies

Another great scent to add to the Fall list is the smell of baking. There's truly nothing else that makes you feel warm inside like cookies rising in the oven. So why not take it up a notch and bake pumpkin cookies to really envelope the feeling of Fall and home all in one? Baking can also be a forming and bonding experience for friends and family, which is perfect as we move into the holiday season (but let's not forget to appreciate Autumn first, Santa can wait).

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
