Now I'm sure most of you are shocked by the title of this article, yes you read it right. Now don't get me wrong, I love the Fall season because that means my birthday and Halloween are around the corner and it isn't 1,000 degrees in Texas anymore. While there are many reasons why Fall is the best, here are the reasons why Fall is the worst.

1. Let's all admit it, pumpkin is a shit flavor.

Yes, it's the time of year that for some reason everyone starts putting pumpkin in absolutely EVERYTHING and I hate it. You all know that you are all losing your minds over a squash right? Getting over that fact, let's talk about how nasty it taste. It has this putrid creamy flavor that doesn't taste good unless you add a crap ton of sugar and cinnamon with it. I just want to enjoy my coffee and cakes without having a lumpy squash shoved down my throat, mkay? Although, I am a huge fan of the Dancing pumpkin. Sir, I love your work!


2. Pumpkin Patches (wow it seems like a got beef with pumpkins)

I know that going to pumpkin patches and taking adorable pictures with your family and friends is living the Fall dream but I don't wanna go and you can't make me. It's always so crowded with people fighting over who will get the ugliest pumpkin, kids screaming all over the place, and freaking hay freaking everywhere. Also no, I don't want to take a creepy hay ride from that creepy man named Dale is the flannel shirt, no thank you.

3. Who run the world? Squirrels

During the Fall season you will see a rediculous amount of those beady-eyed furry little creatures. They may seem cute, but I'm pretty sure that squirrels are evil. They always seem to follow you and stare deep into your soul, and you never know when they might attack. I don't trust them, so I try my hardest to respect them. Also since there are so many of them out and about, they all seem to run out in the middle of the street right when my car is driving by. I may not trust the squirrels, but that doesn't mean I want them dead. I have a feeling that one day I'm going to get into a car accident trying to avoid hitting one of those suckers.

4. Instagram

When Fall comes around and the leaves start to change from green, to orange, yellow, and red I agree it's so beautiful, but that's not all I want to see on my stinkin' Instagram feed! During this time of year, everyone suddenly becomes a photographer and thinks that they need to bless the world with this picture of a tree with orange leaves. News flash you don't, I have 10 other people that have done the same thing, it doesn't make you artistic or special. Here's a tip: Just enjoy the beauty of Fall and keep all of the pictures of leaves off of social media, thanks!

5. Sweater Weather

Now that there has been a definite drop in temperature it's time to bring out all of the cozy clothes that you've had stored away since last winter. But now all of these sweaters suddenly aren't good enough for this season, I need more, more, MORE! Fall is the season where I spend most of my money, and it's all on sweaters and scarfs. I have no self-control when it comes to cozy appeal, but there is no reason for a person to own close to 50 sweaters and even more scarfs, but I just can't stop. I blame Fall for all of my financial problems.


But don't let this list fool you, Fall is still my favorite season

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...

In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
