Halloween may be over, but there's still more to look forward to.

Welcoming In November
Noblesse Oblige

Halloween has almost come and gone, and it's nearly time to put away the costumes and finish off your candy. But while the excitement of trick or treating and costume parties begins to fade, there's new things to look forward to. November brings in the twilight of autumn and the chill in the airs gets a little bit cooler. The trees begin to become bare, losing most of their leaves at this point and we begin to brace for winter. While all of this may not sound like much fun, there's still plenty to enjoy in November. November to me symbolizes time spent with family and friends creating warm memories to stave off the chilly days.

October, November, and December are some of my most favorite months within the entire year. It's a busy time of year, but it's also fun and memorable. November stands out for, of course, Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving. Not only is it an entire day devoted to eating (which is something that I, personally, love about it) but it also means that it's time spent with the people closest to you. There's not much better than that.

I also love the chill in the air that comes in November. One of my favorite things about fall is being able to throw on a cozy sweater and boots and walk out into the fresh, crisp air. While so far this year's fall has been less than chilly, I still look forward to when it finally will cool down and I can fully embrace the autumn season and the clothing that comes along with it. It's all of this that makes this time of year feel warm and cozy.

And while the bright colors and leaves begin to fade and fall away, and just the bones of the trees are left, I still love looking around at nature in November. The change that occurs in the month symbolizes endings and new beginnings just beyond the horizon. Knowing that in a few months the trees will begin to bloom again with fresh buds, allows me to enjoy watching the earth slow down and rest during the winter months. The cycle of the seasons throughout the year has always been something that fascinates and intrigues me.

Even with the cooler days there's still so much to enjoy about, and look forward to, with November. There's time spent with family and friends, and there's always the holidays just around the corner. It's all this excitement and fun that makes me enjoy this time of year so much. Fall is my favorite season because each month of fall represents something unique within it. So while we look towards the end of October, as we head into the twilight of the year, just remember that there's still so much more to look forward to in the coming weeks of November.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

8188

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
