Make Fall Great Again

Winter can wait.

Make Fall Great Again

I'm an avid Twitter person. Am I on it a little more than I should be? Yeah, probably. I also don't get mad very often. But this is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed.

As I scroll through my Twitter newsfeed, I see so many people already tweeting about how they want to start listening to Christmas music and are ready for it to snow. Let's pump the brakes for a second. IT'S NOT EVEN HALLOWEEN YET. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas as much as the next person. It's probably my favorite holiday, outside summer vacation (yes, I now that's not an actual holiday). But I can wait for the snow. It's like we go from summer into winter, completely forgetting about fall.

What happened to everyone getting all geeked out about pumpkin spice lattes, apple orchards, and football? What happened to the excitement of going door to door asking strangers for candy? Halloween is literally the only day that is socially acceptable. What happened to carving pumpkins and roasting the pumpkin seeds? Oh yeah, it died when we all decided to only do it for the "gram" and not just because it was fun.

What about Thanksgiving? Did we forget about that too? Y'all are too busy worrying about the "great Black Friday deals" you think you're getting, you forgot about spending time with your family eating way too much food. Just thinking about the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, sweet potatoes, mac 'n' cheese, and you can't forget the great American apple pie, makes my mouth water.

Not to mention the fact that Black Friday is no longer on Friday. It starts at like 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. This is asinine. Do people no longer enjoy watching Thanksgiving Day football anymore? I, for one, love it even if the Lions lose. But I digress.

Forgive me if I seem a little harsh, but the fact of the matter is that Christmas can wait. Fall is about the leaves changing, pumpkin spice lattes, puffy sweaters, apple orchards, Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, and football. Let fall have its time, Christmas will be here soon enough and then we can complain all about the snow and ice, and how we wish it was summer again.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

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.
