The First Month Of College Told Through Parks & Recreation

Because the only thing better than late night ramen is late night ramen AND parks and rec.

The First Month Of College Told Through Parks & Recreation

This past week marks the end of my first month of college. It's had its ups and downs and lots of stresses, but through it all, one thing has stayed constant: Parks and Recreation. What they say about college students loving Netflix is true. It distracts us from the homesickness and the crazy assignments while providing that much needed laughter that is sometimes overlooked in the hectic schedules. I've found the show very relatable these past few weeks.

Where my priorities have been in finding resources:

Trying to go out and meet new people:

Texting your best friend when you're separated:

When you're looking for some variety in the cafeteria:

When you forget you have an essay at 11 the night before:

When you make an A on that essay you started at 11 the night before:

Late nights in your dorm room:

Walking into your first class:

When people ask you what you're doing with your major:

When you finally meet the people you belong with:

All in all, my first month has been full of challenges, change, and excitement that only makes me more eager for the next four years.

She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
