Falling In Love With Autumn

The way the air feels when I take a deep breath, almost like chewing on a peppermint, is crisp and rich.

Falling In Love With Autumn

There’s something about that burnt orange, the orange often-called pumpkin, which speaks to me. Maybe it’s the spiced tone, giving off an aroma of coffee shops and ease. It could possibly be the way the flame-like hue makes me want to put wool socks on my cold feet and snuggle up to a sweet puppy. More likely, though, it’s the way that the warm shade of orange is related to everything that I love about fall.

I love the leaves. I love the way they crunch, the way they change, and they way they smell when dew falls on them. I can’t get enough of how there are never two colors of leaves exactly alike, almost like fingerprints from our silent friends. The trees are poetic, because they create indescribable beauty from their yearly death. When the leaves fall on the ground as the rain pours, it looks like the heavens took the time to make the world’s largest watercolor painting, for the rich, poor, old, and young to enjoy. The Louvre envies my sidewalk.

The air is rejuvenating. One breath in, and all your troubles are evaporated. One breath out, your sorrows are blown away. When I walk down the street with my hands in my pockets, I don’t bother to cover my nose from the cold. I love it. The way the air feels when I take a deep breath, almost like chewing on a peppermint, is crisp and rich. It makes me think of winter and summer doing a dance, and as a result they create the most beautiful waltz ever seen.

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.

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.
