Ten Reasons Why October Is The Best Month

Ten Reasons Why October Is The Best Month

"I`m so Glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

1. Fall

The leaves are changing color, getting ready for winter.

2. Air is crisp

Breathing is finally comfortable, from hot air to cold, October is right in the middle.

3. Apple orchards

You can`t just get any cider and donuts, you have to make the trip, get the full effect.

4. Warm drinks...or cold

They both work. There are no limits, get that frozen drink, who cares what time of year it is?

5. Flannels

Who doesn`t love to throw on one of the comfiest shirts ever created, every day of the week?

6. Bonfires

Sitting outside, watching the flames flicker and dance, hearing the wood crackle, and being with family and friends is the best place to be. Roasting a marshmallow, waiting for the golden-brown color, and not being mad about accidentally burning it because you were lost in the stars.

7. Hayrides

Going through the field, seeing all the colors, and getting prepared to pick a pumpkin is always more fun when you`re sitting on straw in a wagon being pulled by a John Deere.

8. Photo ops

The colors make this time of year perfect for pictures. Less humidity means more control of your hair and gives you the temperature to dress however you want.

9. Halloween

Whether its group costumes or a solo act, there isn`t a dull moment.

10. Pumpkins

Going to find the perfect pumpkin was the highlight of your day.

To The Stressed Out College Student, Be Optimistic For Spring Quarter

I am looking forward to a productive spring quarter.


As a strenuous ten weeks of winter quarter is finally coming to a close, there is no better feeling than to be rewarded with a week of spring break. For most colleges and universities, this period of time is one of excitement and relief, as students approach a summer vacation that begins in May. Yet, for students with schedules revolving around the lovable (and often hatable) quarter system, it feels as though summer is far from our reach.

On a personal note, my previous ten weeks of classes have been bearable at best. I can proudly say that I have been counting down the days until spring break since our winter quarter began in January, though now that the week is finally approaching, I am reminded by the fact that I have yet another ten weeks of school in the near future. Interestingly enough, I have not started the countdown to June 18th quite yet. Instead, I am looking forward to a productive spring quarter that will leave me feeling energized and accomplished as I enter into a fresh summer.

I believe that the spring quarter withholds a sense of refreshment and newfound energy in comparison to that of fall and winter. Though students on the quarter system will end classes later than others, there is something to be said for spending days on campus when the warm weather finally breaks. Time seems to pass faster than it did in the dark and ominous weeks of winter quarter, and everyone seems to have a more positive attitude - as we can all see that vacation is approaching.

To the stressed out college student, be optimistic for spring quarter. Though tests and finals will still be ever-present, the completion of another ten weeks of classes is excellent motivation to achieve success and reward yourself within the coming months.
