It's that time of year again, arguably the best time of the year! It's neither too cold nor too hot outside and just perfect in scenery and the festive moods that start to spread. It's fall time! I've always enjoyed this season the most and here are the top seven reasons why autumn is as awesome as it is.

1. Nature becomes more natural and beautiful

Hands down, almost everyone is taken by the sight of trees with their leaves having changed color into those warm, fuzzy yellows, browns and reds. It's so soothing to look at or even walk through a canopy of fall leaves. Sunrises and sunsets become more vibrant and starry nights, especially up in the artic circle with the aurora borealis (northern lights), become more magical. If anything, this is the time nature best connects to the human soul.

2. Cooler weather is the best kind of weather

No more hot, sticky, humid weather! No need to worry about sweating away in the summer heat and rushing to grab a cold drink every two seconds. In fact, scientific studies have shown that cold weather also boosts performance in people and improves our decision making by allowing us to concentrate more on our logic versus being drained of energy given a warmer temperature surrounding. So bring on the cold, cool breeze of fall!

3. All-things-comfy-and-cozy time

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F16%2F6361218359211289231156211832_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=979&h=81c070cc26d225cece94a498530af820d803c81247d935cc69ef354f6383cf48&size=980x&c=2836234390 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F16%252F6361218359211289231156211832_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D979%26h%3D81c070cc26d225cece94a498530af820d803c81247d935cc69ef354f6383cf48%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2836234390%22%7D" expand=1]

It's sweater weather time indeed! Finally, you can show off all those crazy, fashionable sweaters you got! And don't have to worry much about your wardrobe as that sweater and scarves and gloves have got you all covered.

All-things-comfy-and-cozy also means getting the fireplace going and breaking out all the furry, fuzzy blankets!

Who doesn't like relaxing by the fire while wrapped up in a blanket?

4. Autumn food

I think this sums it up pretty well:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F16%2F636121835921910022797394987_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=873&h=f04b0d804843539e2866b855f1f485ec5690dba4dc4782aee452eb44e7d18452&size=980x&c=2097387752 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F16%252F636121835921910022797394987_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D873%26h%3Df04b0d804843539e2866b855f1f485ec5690dba4dc4782aee452eb44e7d18452%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2097387752%22%7D" expand=1]

In addition to the pie and the ever famous pumpkin spice lattes, nothing beats the incoming cold weather like a warm cup of autumn apple oatmeal in the morning or having a fall sweet potato side for dinner in the evening. Admit it, warm food (or food in general) just tastes better in fall.

5. Fall back in time (and into bed)

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F16%2F636121882426566674514522228_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=985&h=37f32d288b31582af668574b7a4bfa679236c10efcbc05aee08df787840f6377&size=980x&c=3056373908 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F16%252F636121882426566674514522228_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D985%26h%3D37f32d288b31582af668574b7a4bfa679236c10efcbc05aee08df787840f6377%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3056373908%22%7D" expand=1]

Fall means food, but after all that eating comes some laid back chill time. Speaking of time, happily enough we get to reset our clocks back by an hour, therefore increasing the hours of sleep we're getting (extremely vital for us students) or to finally try and squeeze in some quality knitting time (or any other hobby you may have for fall).

6. New season in weather means more seasons of favorite and new TV shows

An extra hour may also mean an extra hour of binging on your favorite releases this fall. If not into TV shows, there is always the release of book series to look forward to or new novels (and, of course, binge reading is the best of its kind in reading)!

Waiting for the next episode or book like:

(Especially true if left with a cliffhanger.)

7. Holiday season is around the corner

Thanksgiving is weeks away and soon the countdown to all those splendid winter holidays will begin! This also means shopping season is coming. Time to start saving up for all those Christmas goodies for your family, friends, and maybe yourself! Oh, and did I mention the upcoming arrival of snow and snow days?

No matter what your reason is for loving fall, it really is a fun-filled time of nature to celebrate!

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.

By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101

    3325
    WikiMedia

    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
