Ah, so it is finally fall. Put away your shorts, flip flops, and short sleeves and trade them in for rain jackets, hoodies, and boots! For many, fall is the most wonderful season, because what can be better than apple cider, bright colored leaves, and pumpkin-flavored everything? Here are a few things to look forward (or not) to this season:
Watch your fellow Scarlet Knights play on Saturdays and go out and support during home games! Our stripe the birthplace game against Michigan is coming up on October 8th and it will be a game you for sure won’t want to miss. And I can’t forget to mention NFL Sundays. Grab some friends and some snacks and watch your favorite teams play.
One of my favorite activities to do during the fall is apple picking. Something about putting on a cute outfit and picking some fresh fruit from a tree that you will ~hopefully~ make into a delicious apple pie or other tasty meal. You’re lucky if you go to a farm where there is a pumpkin patch too – kill two birds with one stone. I thank the “autumn gods” everyday for pumpkin-flavored delights. If you’re looking for a real treat, our very own Brower Commons has pumpkin ice cream that is to die for.
Halloween is a time for people’s creatives sides to show. Whether you’re dressing up as your favorite TV show character, or a classic ghost or witch, Halloween is always a fun time.
Unfortunately, with the change of the weather comes the ever so unpleasant stuffy nose and cough. On a college campus it is seemingly unavoidable to catch a cold with people sneezing and coughing all around you. If you are sick though, do us all a favor and try to keep your germs to yourself. For the rest of you, keep your hand sanitizer and tissues handy.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
