9 Free Or Inexpensive Fall Date Ideas For You And Your Spooky Boo

9. Nap together.


Fall is creeping upon us, ghouls and gals! You know what that means, right? Candy corn, pumpkin carving, pumpkin spice lattes. I don't know about you, but I love fall. It's probably my favorite season. It gives me the perfect excuse to layer up and digest pumpkin flavored things.

But enough about my love for fall and more about what you and your spooky boo can do to stay warm while saving money! You don't need to spend a fortune to have fun.

1. Go to a pumpkin patch.

The more obvious date: go to a pumpkin patch! It's free unless you buy a pumpkin, and even then it shouldn't be that expensive.

2. Carve pumpkins.

Once you've picked out your desired pumpkins, carve them out together! Turn it into a contest if you'd like. Best pumpkin gets a kiss!

3. Go to haunted houses or corn mazes.

These also shouldn't be too expensive. The corn mazes I went to back in high school offered a student discount for all three mazes. Check out your local Halloween themed attractions to see what they offer!

4. Explore something abandoned.

Going along with the scary theme of things, go explore something abandoned. Do it legally of course (if that's possible).

5. Go on a hike.

Depending on where you live, it's never a bad time to go on a hike. It's free and you really get to see fall in all its glory!

6. Have a picnic.

Have a fall themed picnic! Prepare yourself a cute little meal, set up a blanket on a pile of leaves (or grass), and enjoy each other's companies!

7. Bake Halloween cookies.

If you and your ghoulfriend like baking, bake Halloween themed cookies together! Unlike the pumpkin carving contest, the both of you win in the end.

8. Watch scary movies.

I love scary movies all year round, but October is the time I can really go all out! And it's socially acceptable to do so, too. So, take advantage of this. Snuggle up on the couch, get your fireplace going, and have a scary movie marathon!

9. Nap together.

And now for my personal favorite. I mean, sleeping is free, right? It's never not a good time to have a nap date!

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
