11 Reasons I Love the Season of Autumn

I love every season in its own way, but autumn has a lot to offer.

11 Reasons I Love the Season of Autumn

If you were to ask me what my favorite season was it would be a very difficult question for me to answer. I love summer with its warm weather and sandals. I love spring with its blooming flowers and new life. I love winter for its snowy days and bright starry nights. And I love autumn for its world of colours(and it doesn't hurt that my birthday falls during its season.) I guess though if I had to narrow it down I'd say my favorite season falls in between the transition from summer to autumn because the weather is perfect and the taste of all that fall has to give is teasingly just around the corner. Autumn has so much to give, and so in honour of the season, I compiled a list of a few of the things I love about it.

1. The Leaves

When you think autumn you think leaves. Leaves turning to set the world ablaze with colour, leaves falling to crunch underfoot, leaves raked into piles to play in, and just leaves galore!

2.Hot Coffee, Hot Cocoa, Hot Tea, and Hot Apple Cider

Fall is the perfect time to fix yourself a hot cup of almost anything! Hardly anything beats a warm cuppa and a nice long book. Whether you're a coffee, tea, cocoa, or cider type of person it all hits the spot during autumn!

3. Fall Festivals

I don't know if it's the atmosphere or the festival food, but I have always had a soft spot for fall festivals. I love the music, the booths, the talent, and the people that all manifest together for a few days.

4. Fall Clothes

I'm not a huge fashion follower, but its hard to beat comfy sweaters and worn in boots. I love the clothes that you get to wear in autumn, especially leggings and big scarves. The clothes are super comfortable and keep you cozy as the weather gets cooler.

5. Fall Scented Candles

The smell of fall scented candles are a blessing in this life! I love the smell of all the herbs and spices mixed together. Little else is better at putting you in the autumn mood than a deliciously scented candle.

6. Halloween

I have always loved Halloween because I love spooky things. I love watching movies that are Halloween themed or are just plain scary. I love folklore, dressing up in costumes, eating sweets, and carving pumpkins. This is just one of those holidays that I enjoy celebrating and have lots of fun while doing it.

7. Thanksgiving

Along with celebrating Halloween, we also get to celebrate Thanksgiving during autumn. This holiday has a special place in my heart because it is family centered and a time to reflect on all our many blessings. Mix good times with those you love and amazing food, you've got one happy camper!

8. Bonfires

I love a good bonfire while huddled under a quilt, making s'mores, and surrounded by friends. I have many fond memories of laughing around a fire, and staying toasty while enjoying a night out with buddies.

9. Cooler Weather

Down here in Alabama the summers are as hot as Hades and the winters are as cold as the North Pole, so the reprieve of autumn really hits the spot. The rainy days are perfect for readers and the foggy mornings are nice and peaceful(even if it does look like zombie apocalypse weather!)

10. Watching Folks Get Excited Over Football

Being the only one in my house that doesn't care about football is funny because I get to watch my family hop around the room and scream at the TV. Though they don't see what's so amusing, I am capable of seeing the humor in their antics. The whole football atmosphere can really be fun, especially if you tag along to a tailgating event or a big game. I don't give two craps about the sport, but it can be a fun experience to watch other people get excited about it.

11. Christmas is Just Around the Corner

Though a lot of people complain that Christmas stuff starts popping up in stores way too early I respectfully agree to disagree. I love Christmas (it's my favorite holiday), so bring out the Christmas songs on the day of Thanksgiving, decorate your houses as soon as the turkey has been put away, and fill all the towns with Christmas cheer because I love me some holiday spirit! Autumn for me means that Christmas isn't far off, and that's music to my ears!

I hope you all enjoyed this list and I hope you all enjoy the autumn season.

God bless!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
