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

Tips for Successful Dorm Room Cooking
172
views

College is a time of great stress and also a lot of fantastic experiences. Schools open the doorway to things like internships and volunteer opportunities, but they also make sure you always have something to work on. One way to deal with stress that they’ll advertise to students is for you to go by the cafeteria and grab a quick meal on your way to the library or favorite study spot. For some students, this works, but not for very long.

No matter how creative cafeterias get with the food they serve, it isn’t always right for everyone. People who have specialized diets like vegans and vegetarians may not have enough — or any — options to eat. Those with food allergies come across this problem as well. And for many, they just prefer food from elsewhere. It’s why pizza places and Chinese restaurants around schools offer discounts and delivery. However, eating takeout every night is also not a great way to live.

While you’re learning about many other things during your time at school, you’ll find that you need to learn about cooking as well. Dorms aren’t the best place to begin a culinary career, but even if you lack a stove, you can still find ways to cook for yourself. To figure out where to start, check out some tips so you can skip the Ramen and be a successful dorm room chef.

1. Never Forget About Your Roommates

When you live with roommates, you have to be especially careful about how your actions affect them. Things like keeping your room clean and not spending too much time in the bathroom will come up, and this same thoughtfulness applies to cooking.

If you think there’s a good chance you’ll burn a food, make something smelly or generally make a mess in your shared space, give them a heads up. They’ll appreciate knowing what’s going on, and they may even want to join in on the action!

2. Start With the Small Stuff

Your first instinct might be to start looking at food blogs online or pinning recipes on Pinterest, which are both great to do. Just remember that you should start with the small stuff. Instead of aiming to bake a family-sized lasagna, maybe look for simple pasta recipes instead.

The fewer ingredients and steps there are in a recipe, the more likely you’ll be able to cook it or find a way to add it to your dorm room supplies. Plus, you don’t want to make a big recipe and then get discouraged when it doesn’t work out.

3. Buy the Basics

Almost every meal will share a common ingredient, and those ingredients come together as the staples of every kitchen. You should learn what the staple foods are so you know what to go out and buy.

If you plan on cooking, think about spices and vegetable oil. If you want to bake, focus on things like flour and baking powder. These are things every cook should have in their pantry, and they’ll end up lasting a long time. Don’t sweat it if your initial grocery bill is higher than you thought it would be. These items are worth it!

4. Rethink the Basics

Okay, so you’ve bought your staple foods. Now what? It’s time to get creative. You can only make sandwiches for so long before you start to crave literally anything else. Rethink how you can use your foods by getting creative.

For instance, a can of tuna usually only costs about a dollar, and it can be made into many different meals. For five dollars, you could get five entirely different dinner options. Take a second to do an internet search on the ingredients you have on hand to see what you can make.

5. Talk With Your Campus Nutritionist

More and more colleges are now getting on board with the idea of offering students the ability to talk with a nutritionist while they’re enrolled. Check on your school’s website to see if a nutritionist is on staff, and then make yourself an appointment.

Not sure if that’s for you? Certain bodily functions, issues and goals you may have are signs that you should see a nutritionist. Even if you’re healthy and fine eating anything, a nutritionist will help you learn about what foods you should eat and how to cook them.

6. Branch Out When You Can

Eventually, you’re going to get tired of eating the same soups and sandwiches that you can easily put together. When you get there, know how to branch out. You can explore a whole new world of foods by investing in a rice cooker or microwave pasta bowl. These things don’t take up much space, but they present the opportunity to try all new foods. And if you haven’t already, renting or buying a mini fridge will give you more space to store food (and keep it all safe from your roommates!).

You may have been assigned to the tiniest room on campus, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck eating at the cafeteria every day. There are still plenty of ways to cook in a dorm room that don’t require a stovetop or dishwasher.

The best first step you can take is to talk with a nutritionist so that you get started by eating what’s right for you and not just what’s microwaveable. Reaching for the quick foods often means eating stuff that’s processed and unhealthy, which will lead you down the road of bad health habits.

Then, it’s time to get creative! Buy the basic foods and do some research to learn all the different ways you can combine them to make meals for yourself. Or experiment on your own and see what you can come up with! Foods like tuna and pasta can be stretched into multiple meals if you find the right recipes.

Don’t let your worries stop you from inventing delicious foods for yourself. You’ll be much happier not waiting in the cafeteria line every night, and you’ll have fun while you’re cooking!
