The Pros And Cons Of Tuscaloosa In The Fall

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

As fall comes to an end in Tuscaloosa (sadly, my last fall as a student at UA), I’ve done a lot of reflection on the weather in the south. While the University of Alabama campus is beautiful year-round, fall definitely has some pros and cons down in T-Town.

Pro: The humidity from summer is nearly gone

Even 50% humidity feels like nothing in comparison to the 150% that exists in August.

Con: When you think the humidity from summer is nearly gone, it comes back

Your hair is going to be frizzy no matter the time of year. #Fact

Pro: It’s football season and tailgating is ON

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Con: The grass on the quad no longer exists after the first home game

And you’ll probably need some L.L.Bean boots to walk through the mud on the quad to get to class.

Pro: It doesn’t get too cold in Alabama

No need to bundle up!

Con: When you go back home to the snow, you can’t hang

Even with what seems to be 20 blankets, your dogs snuggling your legs, and the heat on high, chilliness at home seems unreal after getting home for the holidays.

Pro: The trees and quad look so pretty as the weather begins to change

The University of Alabama quad is absolutely the most beautiful in the country.

Con: You’re going to get a cold because the weather will change when you’re not ready

Come prepped with cough drops, Emergen-C, and DayQuil. You’ll thank me later.

Pro: You get to enjoy the best of the best, Alabama football

Nothing else like it.

Con: You will have unhealthy levels of anxiety due to Alabama football

You know what I mean. Roll Tide!

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
