10 Reasons September Shines Bright

Autumn's Arrival

With 12 options to pick from, some people may be wary as to why I claim September to be the best month in the year. I can already hear people shouting that December has Christmas, or that the bright sunlight of June should count for more. Though these are potent suggestions, September's transitional temperatures and many other attributes crown this month the reining victor.

1. School Supply Shopping

No matter the age, September is the month for back-to-school shopping. There is nothing I love more than opening up the fresh pages of a new notebook while staring starry-eyed at all of the bright yellow signage boasting of the back-to-school deals at a local drugstore.

2. Labor Day

The beauty of this holiday is that there isn't any one way to celebrate it. There's no hassle to create a feast like Thanksgiving, or any last minute shoppers frazzle like Christmas. Those who have Labor Day off are free to do whatever they please.

3. Beginning of Autumn

Watching the leaves change on the trees, going apple picking, and unpredictable temperatures all begin in the wonderful month of September. Each day of the month has the potential be a different temperature outside, and that unpredictability of September allows us to don our favorite new fall clothes.

4. Syllabus Week

Nothing is as beautiful as the first syllabus week of a school year. Getting out of class early and meeting all of your new classmates-- it's almost enough to forget that later in the semester students will be in a slump and will dread going to class!

5. Seasonal Drinks

Three words: Pumpkin Spice Latte. But even for the non-coffee drinkers out there, September means the beginning of our favorite fall inspired flavors: cinnamon, apple and pumpkin, oh my.

6. Football Season

All fanatics await the month of September because it is finally time to start repping your team jerseys, grabbing a hot dog, and to going to the stadium to support your city's NFL team. Bonus points for the fun intramural leagues that begin in September's late afternoon glow.

7. Beyonce's Birthday

The birth of Queen B should be something that we celebrate more often than one day a year, but unfortunately September gets to claim this all important day. (September 4 for all that are not loyal to the hive.)

8. New Beginnings


September allows everyone to shed their summer skin, and maybe some summer sins, and begin setting new goals for the last few months of the year. With January creeping around the corner, September is the best month to remember, and scurry to complete, those New Year's resolutions.

9. Layers

The most fashionable, and the most effective, way to dress is in layers. Bomber jackets, hoodies, flannels, vests, boots, utility jackets, beanies– you name it, September is the month to wear it. With the transitioning temperatures, September is the best month to show off your fashion knowledge and layer on your favorite items.

10. September- Earth, Wind & Fire

You're In Love and Want To Dance - 'September' by Earth, Wind & Fire Giphy

Not only is this probably the most tweeted about song every September, but this tune by Earth, Wind, & Fire is just a jam. And after the 21 day of September ends, music lovers can just turn their attention to Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends."

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
