10 Less Basic Things To Do This Fall

Here are some less-than-basic fall activities to try this season.

1. Listen to "BRIGHTSIDE" by The Lumineers.

I am kind of obsessed with this song, but it has excellent fall vibes and makes me feel at peace.

2. Make your own homemade applesauce.

Get yourself over to a fruit farm or even just the grocery store for some fresh apples and turn those bad boys into a delicious warm snack.

3. Learn to knit.

It is the start of sweater weather, so what if you could figure out how to make your own? Or at least a blanket or hat to stay warm!

4. Go hiking.

Now is arguably the best time for hikes because the colors are changing and the leaves are falling, so you will have the loveliest views and a great temperature as it starts cooling down.

5. Watch "Sweet Home Alabama".

I love Reese Witherspoon with my whole heart and soul, and this is a great movie to put you in the fall mood!

6. Read outside or by a window.

Something about cozying up with a good book while taking in the weather just screams fall to me.

7. Play cards on a weekend afternoon.

I feel like the vibes of weekend afternoons in the fall just hit different. Find a good and fun way to spend it!

8. Go thrifting.

This could be a great chance to pick out some new fall fits or maybe plan ahead for other seasons.

9. Spend a day with your best friend.

Life gets so crazy so fast, it's important to take time to spend with those so significant to us.

10. Take a break.

Finally, this time of year can be brutal. Especially when you're in school, things really start to pick up. it's important to not get too caught up in it all and to take care of yourself. Take a step back and a deep breath, do something to relax, and remember that you're doing great!

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
