7 Things That Only Happen When You Live In New Jersey

They make New Jersey home.

Living out of your home state for a few months every year can be tough. Although it was only a state away for me I could still find the subtle differences between Delaware and New Jersey.

1. The accent

Although I don’t have a full one, it does become more noticeable. I begin to drop my a’s without realizing it and I start to sound like I haven’t left New Jersey at all.

2. Pork Roll.

Yes, all I have been thinking about it eating a pork roll egg and cheese from this restaurant down at the beach. The ones in Delaware are tolerable but don’t taste like New Jersey’s.

3. Going down the shore.

No, we don’t go to the beach, we go down the shore. It’s what I count down starting from Labor Day until Memorial Day.

4. Bruce Springsteen.

If you’re at the shore it suddenly becomes a very normal thing to hear Springsteen being blasted from multiple cars passing by.

5. WAWA.


Yes, this is a staple in many other states as well. However, when you can see the building from your bedroom window at the beach, it gets a whole new meaning.

6. Ice cream.

Delaware does, in fact, have some superior ice cream, but there’s nothing like going to an ice cream shop that’s been opened forever and has homemade ice cream with the flavors you love.

7. The diners.

Nowhere else has diners quite like Jersey. It’s always nice to go to my favorite one, have a nice slice of cake, and hang out for awhile.

These are just a few things that make New Jersey home to me, and coming back to these make it even more special.

The Thanksgiving season is a time we spend with our loved ones giving thanks for the blessings we are given. Here are 20 Bible verses that remind us of what Thanksgiving is all about:

1) 1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

2) Colossians 3:15-17

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

6) Hebrews 12:28-29

Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.

For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.

Autumn Is Obviously The Best Season For These 10 Reasons

10. You can gain a few pounds without anyone noticing. Thanks baggy clothes!

Some people like summer and some people like the winter. But autumn the best season of them all (in my opinion), is never given as much credit as it should be.

While my birthday is in the fall time, I am not a biased source. This season is genuinely the best of all the seasons and here are ten reasons why it is so great.

1. It has two names: fall and autumn.

Giphy

No other season can say that!

2. Pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING!

Haters, you need to try something pumpkin spice before you knock it. This delicious flavor makes me think of the holidays and brings happiness to all who consumes it!

3. Football season happens.

Whether or not you are a big sports fan, most Americans were raised to at least know what football is. If you went to a school with a football team, you know just how big of a deal football is to your school and community.

Plus, football games are a fun way to hangout with friends and to drink hot cocoa.

4. The weather is literally perfect.

Giphy

It's not too hot. You don't go outside and feel like your face is falling off from the heat.

It's also not too cold. You won't worry about frostbite, even without wearing a jacket.

5. Professional photos always look amazing with the colorful leaves!

Who doesn't love photos in the yellow, orange, red, green, and brown falling leaves?

6. You can go on the cutest dates.

Whether you want to take your partner to pick apples at an apple orchard, carve pumpkins at home, or cuddle together on a haunted hayride, this season is a romantic and fun-filled!

7. There are so many holidays!

The first major holiday of the season, and my person favorite, is Halloween where you get tons of candy. Then about a month later is Thanksgiving with the yummy homemade food!

8. November is a common birth month = Infinite birthday cake.

Giphy

I was born in November, as was my father and his father. Not to mention many members of my family, my boss, and other coworkers. This just seems to be a month for having babies! So you will be getting a lot of birthday treats!

9. Stores prepping for the winter holidays means great deals!

In the autumn, you get Black Friday shopping and other discounts throughout the months! Stores know people Christmas shop early so they get the discounts ready.

10. You can gain a few pounds without anyone noticing.

Before I explain, let me tell you that you should not give a shit if you gain a few pounds. But if you are like me, and are a bit insecure about your body, fall is a great time to feel confident in yourself while still looking cute and put-together!

So you see, autumn is, by far, the best season of them all. With multiple holidays, candy and homemade foods, and the perfect weather, who could not like this season?
