Fall Bucket List

Ten things for you to do this fall season!

Fall Bucket List

It's that time again; the air is turning colder, pumpkin spice is a household topic once more and the Bostonians have begun to prepare for fall foliage pictures. It's time for a 2015 Fall Bucket List.

1. Apple Picking

There's nothing better then fresh apples that you hand pick and turn into yummy fall foods like apple pie and apple crisp.

2. Visiting a pumpkin patch

Grab some friends and drive out to a pumpkin patch in search for the perfect pumpkin. Make it a game that whoever finds the best pumpkin gets to pick the scary movies that night!

3. Haunted Houses

The fall season is full of fun things to do, but purposely going to a place that will fill you with frights and screams is the greatest fall activity. Make sure you go with a group and remember it's just for fun!

4. Hayrides

Nothing says fall quite like riding in a wagon over fallen leaves surrounded by pumpkins and good friends.

5. Carving Jack-o'-lanterns

Decorating for fall almost always involves those pumpkins you picked out at the pumpkin patch. Grab some tools and get to work carving a scary or funny face into that perfect pumpkin. Or if you don't want to ruin the perfect pumpkin by cutting into it just paint a face right on the side. If you do carve that pumpkin, don't forget to take the seeds and cook them up with some yummy spices.

6. Fall Cookies

When I was younger the surefire way that I knew it was fall was the Pillsbury cookies that were adorned with ghosts and pumpkins. If you aren't into pre-made cookies you can make fall cookies by adding sprinkles and sugar that are festive colors, like orange and yellow.

7. Caramel Apples

Pick just a few too many apples when you went apple picking? No problem, make those beautifully fresh apples into a not-so-healthy treat for a movie night with friends. Check out this link for a caramel apple recipe

8. Corn Maze

When a hayride just isn't enough, add a corn maze into your day! It's a great place to make memories with friends, have some healthy competition and take lots of fall-themed pictures. Just make sure you charge your phone in case you get lost!

9. Excessively watch the "13 Nights of Halloween"

ABC Family is a plethora for themed movie marathons. Don't miss out on their fall specials and spooky movies leading up to Halloween. They are a perfect distraction from all the fall baked goods.

10. Eat pumpkin-flavored anything

Breads, cookies, muffins, cupcakes, coffees...the list of things you can find and make that are pumpkin flavored is endless. So if you are in fact a fall-lover and you cant get enough of the pumpkin spiced flavor, try making some of your own goodies this year and check it off of your bucket list.

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.
