Fall is in the air

kissing summer goodbye

Summer is coming to an end and I can't say I'm mad about it.


Summer was full of fun adventures with new friends, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't ready to say goodbye. Fall has been in the air for weeks now and I couldn't be happier. The smell of the crisp wind in the air, bonfires on cool nights, football games, and a new wardrobe. I am ready for all things scary- haunted houses, corn mazes, pumpkin carving, old movies, and candles. It is a season full of coziness and I can't contain my excitement anymore!

Maybe it's the fact that this is my first summer spent at a 9:00-5:00 job instead of poolside with my friends, or it could be that since I do spend all my time inside I don't know what to wear so I'm not sweating as soon as I walk out the door. No matter the reason behind it, I am over the moon excited for late fall nights with my friends. I am also strangely excited about new classes, this semester above others, I am getting closer and closer to reaching my career goals. As I approach the finish line, the classes that I take get more interesting and this fall I expect to engage in my classes more than previous semesters.

Another thing that is changing with the season will be my clothes! My closet screams fall all year round. Since I stopped growing, all of my cozy clothes have accumulated over the years. With that being said, I also have a problem with not buying every flannel I see. Layers! Layers! Layers! Seriously, there is such a variety of flannel out there why not have one of every kind. Oh, and let's not forget matching hats, scarves, and gloves. One thing my closet does lack is proper footwear for harsh conditions. If anyone knows of any shoes that are warm and comfy to walk in, hit a girl up.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
