Nine Reasons Why Fall Is The Best

Pumpkin spice and all.

Nine Reasons Why Fall Is The Best

1. The crunchy feel of fallen leaves under your feet. Then, the feeling of slipping on said leaves because it rained last night and they’re all wet and your boots haven’t shipped yet. After that, the feelings of pain and shame that come with you falling really hard onto the pavement.

2. Drinking a pumpkin spice latte and realizing that, if this was available year-round, you definitely wouldn’t be drinking it right now. Seriously. Ever wanted pumpkin-flavored drinks in the summer? I didn’t think so.

3. The weather! As every day gets a little bit colder, my smile grows bigger. We all love being freezing in the morning and just about dying of heatstroke in the afternoon. I mean, my feet were really comfy in these boots earlier…why am I about to pass out?

4. The start of school! And, with it, the start of a collective mental breakdown among all students across the country. The thrill of reading a hundred pages a night is comparable to that of a roller coaster. Why sit on a beach when you can sit in a classroom?

5. America’s favorite sport: interpretive canoeing! Forget football – this art form incorporates everyone’s two favorite things: kneeling in hard wooden boats and winning awards for truly pointless activities. The national championships take place in September of every year – truly a signal that fall has ~fallen~ upon us. Enjoy:

6. Squirrels. Has anyone ever thought these words – “I wish I saw more squirrels today”? I sure have! What would I do if squirrels didn’t materialize out of nowhere every few seconds, run in front of me, and terrify me every 30 seconds?

7. Wearing flannels. No jokes here. Flannels are the light of my life. Every day that I wear a flannel is a day well-spent. My closet:

8. Apple picking with friends! Except it’s not apple picking so much as it is picking apples up off the ground. Then the really fun part: Staggering back to your car with a full bag of apples in each hand, only for the handles of the bags to break. That’s what I call catharsis.

9. Seeing other people talk about how much they love fall. Please, tweet a collage of leaves, Halloween, hot drinks, and UGGs again. I beg you. Please. I missed it the first 15 times I saw it. *insert pumpkin, ghost, and leaf emojis here*

Bonus: One more interpretive canoeing video as an apology for this article.

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.

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.
