15 ways to fall in love with fall

What's On Your Fall Bucket List?

"I'm so glad I live in a world that has Octobers." October and the season of fall are fast approaching. With them, come jackets and hoodies, pumpkins and carvings, Thanksgiving and Halloween, fall candles and lotions, football, pumpkin patches, apple cider, and so much more. Each year I find myself looking for new and fun ways to embrace fall to the fullest, so here is my fall bucket list for 2016.

1. Going to every home football game, no matter the weather

2. Find the perfect pumpkin patch with an even more perfect pumpkin

3. Create a creative carving without messing-up

Carving both the Decepticon and Autobot logos from Transformers (like above) is my goal for this year's pumpkin carving.

4. Play Twister outdoors

5. Take a picture of the leaves before fall, as they change colors, and at the end of the fall season

6. Try something new that is pumpkin flavored (I'm going for a pumpkin spice latte)

7. Make my momma's apple and pumpkin pies just like she does

8. Watch the classic Halloween movies (Nightmare before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown)

9. Find a costume that outdoes last year's (I was Shego from Disney Channel's Kim Possible)

10. Jump in a pile of colorful leaves

11. Go through a corn maze without thinking about it too logically

Let's be honest, sometimes I think a little too literally and boy do mazes only amplify it. Maybe it's time to get lost in the maze!

12. Eat as many roasted pumpkin seeds that I can

13. Try a new fall themed outfit

14. Visit as many different pumpkin patches as possible

There are 20 known pumpkin patches in Oklahoma!

15. Enjoy my last OSU homecoming as an undergraduate

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .
