12 Things You Know To Be True If You're Obsessed With Fall

The old proverb was right - lattes are thicker than water.

12 Things You Know To Be True If You're Obsessed With Fall

This is for the people who reject the notion that summer is the Queen Bey of the seasons - the ones who appreciate depth, beauty and utter spookiness. This is for the people that know these things to be true:

1. You can never bake..or eat..too many pies.

And you never, ever, ever feel guilty about it.

2. The seasonal drink menus are endless and overwhelming.

You understand that while the beloved pumpkin spice latte is a must, hot chocolate and warm cider need some love once in a while, too.

3. Halloween movies consume your life.

With titles ranging from "Twitches" on Disney Channel, to the 8 film "Halloween" series featuring psycho-murderer Michael Myers, you have spent countless hours cuddled up next to your pets (or significant other..or any fluffy object that could possibly shield you in the case of possible home invasion) watching every hilarious, gory, scream-worthy scene.

4. Fall has incomparable beauty.

Changing leaves, vibrant sunsets and increasingly bare trees...you know that fall is definitely #aesthetic.

5. Seasonal clothing is mandatory.

But it's not just sweater weather you're excited about - your collection of warm socks is unprecedented, you own more pajama sets than swimsuits, and you have a flannel in every shade of red.

6. Halloween is the holiday.

Christmas is great, but you would rather have fake blood and all-you-can-eat candy (shout out the the lovely people who pass out the full sized candy bars) than stockings and sugar cookies.

7. Pumpkins make the best art.

Carving, painting, and crafting gives you the opportunity to unleash your inner Picasso, and, in the spirit of all things spooky and peculiar, your final pieces often leave people asking, "what even is that?"

8. It isn't really fall until you go apple picking.

You not only go to the orchard to hand pick apples for your pies (see number one), but you go in full battle gear, hot chocolate included, prepared to fight for the sacred cider donuts and caramel apples that too often seem to have sold out just before you arrived at the orchard.

9. Warm scented candles are life.

Fall is the season of pumpkin spice, but as an autumn connoisseur, you know that the best scents have a vanilla or strong cinnamon based.

10. The most legendary Halloween costumes are carefully thought out and crafted.

And while you spend months preparing for this one night, you try to keep in mind that it's all fun and games..that is until somebody in a store bought witch costume wins the contest.

11. Fall is the ultimate "cuddle season."

Winter lovers think they have this one, with the cold weather and Christmas music. But, you know darn well that nothing offers warmth and comfort like a scary-movies-and-hot-chocolate-included cuddle session in mid October.

12. Fall > literally everything.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
