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

What 'The Drink You Bring To Class' Says About Your Personality

I think we're ALL #thirsty.

Sometimes it's a well thought out protein shake made in a blender bottle, a smoothie from a Nutribullet or a venti cappucino with 3 extra shots and a pump of caramel from Starbucks.

No matter what it is, we all have a preferred drink we bring to class.

1. Aloe water drink

You probably follow #fitspo trends on Instagram, but you're not sure if the drink is actually healthy or not. Sure, aloe on the outside of your body is good for it, so what happens when you drink it?

2. Very Large™ iced coffee

You tell your friends, "caffeine doesn't affect me!" but two hours later you're in class with tunnel vision wondering if the new boots you bought will go with your denim skirt.

3. Naked juice

I mean, it's made of sugar basically but you probably think it's the healthiest thing you can get at the convenience store on the way to class. Who needs Starbucks when you can juice your way to a 2,000 calorie diet?

4. Jamba Juice smoothie

It's a step up from a Naked juice but not any better. You probably also follow #fitspo accounts on Instagram and think that drinking a sugar smoothie will get you #swole. It won't.

5. Boba tea

Maybe you're an international student or maybe you're just an American who loves Asian culture, calls everything "kawaii" and can't live without pho. Or maybe you just picked one up on the way to class because a student group was selling them. That's cool too.

6. Unidentified colored liquid in a water bottle

Who knows. You're a complete mystery. It could be Emergen-c, it could be alcohol, it could be a flavored iced tea packet. We can't figure you out.

7. Soda

Your teeth are probably rotting or you don't care what people think of you.

8. Coffee from the pretentious shop on campus

Ugh, we get it. You pay for your coffee without using points. You're so bougie it hurts.

9. Water in a Nalgene bottle covered in stickers

Probably think you're so hip and cool, but no one cares. A sticker that says "Mind the Gap"? Soooo original, Sarah.

10. Gallon of water

Either you're a frat boy who lost a bet, or you just feel a great need to be hydrated. This doesn't make sense. Carry a water bottle like a normal human.

How Watermelon—A Fruit—Became Oklahoma's State Vegetable

THIS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED.

When someone tried to tell me that watermelon was the state vegetable, I giggled. Considering myself as someone who always takes the objective approach, I decided to the research. Google verified that watermelon was the state vegetable AS OF 2007.

I cannot even use time and ignorance as an excuse for this. When Oklahoma had mistletoe as the state flower in the 1800s, it was because mistletoe was not known to be a parasite that decimated precious tree populations. Once politicians found research proving that mistletoe was indeed a parasite, Oklahoma legislature decided to choose a new state flower that properly represented growth instead of poison within the environment. This is not necessarily the case with the state vegetable.

According to Don Barrington, the senator that sponsored A bill proposing for watermelon to be the state VEGETABLE said that the "controversy" had been solved. Apparently, the categorization of watermelon as either a fruit or a vegetable WAS AN IMPORTANT CONTROVERSY FOR THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF OKLAHOMA.

Sorry if you are reading and it feels like I am yelling by putting important phrases in all caps, but everyone needs to be alerted to the fact at HOW PREPOSTEROUS THIS IS. IF I CANNOT GET OVER IT, YOU CANNOT GET OVER IT, EITHER.

Turning back to the main point, we have had many important controversies that the Oklahoma legislature has had to handle with seriousness and wisdom. One includes fracking, and another includes our teachers not being paid enough to teach across the state of Oklahoma. Road construction has been another important issue amongst others. Therefore, there really was not a reason for AN ENTIRE BILL TO BE WRITTEN FOR WATERMELON TO BE CONSIDERED LEGALLY AS A VEGETABLE IN ORDER TO BE THE STATE VEGETABLE.

According to Senator Barrington, he claimed that watermelon was a member of the cucumber family, so it could, therefore, be a vegetable. However, he was met with dissent from a fellow senator who literally pulled out a dictionary and read it, proving that watermelon is considered to be a fruit everywhere else. Senator Barrington also boasted of how watermelon as a state vegetable would boost his "watermelon-growing Rush Springs constituency" since he apparently won a local contest for spitting watermelon seeds the farthest in 1994

Not only is it a problem when politicians ignore definitions IN THE DICTIONARY, but also the problem is cucumbers ARE ALSO NOT VEGETABLES. Senator Barrington claimed that watermelon had to be a vegetable because it is a part of the cucumber family. The issue with this is that scientists have classified cucumbers ALSO AS FRUITS, specifically fleshy fruits that are called Pepos. Therefore, Senator Barrington desired for watermelon to be considered as a vegetable under false claims that it could be a vegetable.

In 2015, Senator Nathan Dahm wrote a bill, Bill 329, to revoke watermelon's designation as the Oklahoma state vegetable. However, watermelon is still the state vegetable because we have many watermelon festivals and some politicians can win competitions for spitting watermelon seeds.

NONE OF THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED.

THIS IS A PROBLEM BECAUSE IT HAPPENED, AND WATERMELON BECOMING A LEGAL VEGETABLE SHOULD NOT BE A PRIORITY FOR POLITICIANS.
