Fall is around the corner: here's why I'm excited.

10 Reasons I Am Stoked For Autumn

Autumn is just around the corner and for me it can't get here soon enough.


I've spent almost all day every day out in the hot weather this year. I enjoyed summer's gorgeous weather and taken advantage of it but its time for crisp fall days. I can't wait to break out my sweaters and enjoy my coffee in the chilly mornings.

1. No more sweating from simply being in existence.


I am tired of sweating buckets from just standing outside. I spent most of this summer working outside and even in the shade I was still sweating. Most of the days have felt so humid it was like walking into a bowl of soup. I can't wait to walk outside in my sweater coffee in hand and be comfortable.

2. Hot beverages

I love coffee and hot chocolate. In the summer I'm already hot so I can't enjoy the warming effects of these drinks. Once fall hits though its hot beverages all day every day to warm my soul.

3. School starts back up


I enjoy school I like the structure and I enjoy what I'm learning. I am more than ready to be back working towards my degree. I'm also stoked to have my friends who only live in Saginaw during the school year back in town.

4. Halloween


Halloween is easily my favorite holiday. I go all out decorating my house and planning a party. I get dressed up and watch movies. Scary movies and Halloween movies are my absolute favorite. To say I am looking forward to Halloween is an understatement.

5. Sweater weather

Sweaters are the best clothing item to own. They're comfy, generally flattering and can be worn in a multitude of ways. Sweaters make up most of my shirts and I'm ready to wear them on the daily again.

6. Fall colors

Rich fall colors are so beautiful. The deep earthy tones are warm and inviting.

7. Apple Cider Donuts

Need I say more? Warmed up and paired with hot apple cider these are the perfect snack to cuddle up with and watch, of course, a Halloween movie.

8. A holiday dedicated to eating... I mean being thankful.


Thanksgiving is a time to join with family and share what we are thankful for. Obviously, this holiday also includes a lot of tasty food that we are all very thankful for.

9. Fall scents

Fall scents like baked goods and cinnamon are warm and inviting. The weather is great to bake in too. I love to bake and enjoy the warm delicious smelling kitchen.

10. Leaves begin to change colors

When you look out the window you don't see a lively green background anymore. The trees are starting to fade to red, brown, yellow and orange. The fiery colors begin to fall and set the mood for relaxing cool nights.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
