Why Fall is the Best Season

Let's face it, that beach bod wasn't really your style anyways...

Why Fall is the Best Season

Coming off what we tried to claim was going to be "the best summer yet," where we went to the beach twice, went on zero vacations and spent far too many hours working inside instead of getting tan, I can see why Fall might feel disappointing. But let's be honest, is that something that a pumpkin spice ANYTHING can't fix?!

If you're not already a Fall lover, let me try and convince you otherwise.

First up we have Fall food. Fall is the welcome mat to Halloween which is the welcome mat to Thanksgiving. Both that include A LOT of amazing food. Chocolate, more chocolate, pumpkin pie this, pumpkin spice that, apple pie, apple cider, turkey, stuffing, butter that's shaped like a lamb; all very promising to help you fluff up for the winter.

That brings me to friends and family. The holidays are all about being around the people you love. Whether it's dressing up as the cast from Scooby-Doo with your family or a not to childish Charlie's Angel's with your friends, it's a must do for the Fall.

Speaking of dressing up, what is not to love about Fall fashion? I'll take a baggy sweater, leggings, wool socks, boots and a cute scarf over a t-shirt and shorts any day. Sweater weather is all I really need to say.


- Apple picking
- Pumpkin picking
- Making pies
- Carving pumpkins
- Haunted houses
- Hayrides, the haunted or not haunted kind.
- Corn Mazes
- Do a wine tour
- Celebrate Oktoberfest
- Halloween party
- Trick-or-treat
- Do a 5-K the morning of Thanksgiving
- Go for a hike
- Heat up some apple cider and read a good book
- Have a scary movie marathon

All the things not nearly as enjoyable without the best weather. Fall is the best of both worlds. You aren't sweating your butt off in 90 degree weather but you also aren't losing any fingers to frostbite. Sure flowers blooming is a beautiful sight but you can't beat the view of a hike through the woods with the leaves changing colors and watching the birds fly south.

Fall is the best for sports too. You have the beginning of the hockey season, meat of the football season, and playoffs for baseball. If you're not into any of the Fall activities I told you about before, you can't go wrong with a good ol' football game.

It all comes down to this question; Can you name another season that is so great that it was given two names?!

Whatever you might call it, it's hands-down the best.

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.

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.
