October is here and the fall-loving girl in me couldn’t be more ecstatic. This is the season of potato soup, sweatshirts, and bumping Taylor Swift’s Red album like it’s my job. Like every other basic white girl in the world, on the morning of October 1, I arose from my bed with a smile on my face. Clothed in a sweater and leggings, I embarked on a journey to class in hopes of encountering cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and maybe, just maybe a slight frost on my car. Those hopes soon dwindled into yesteryear as I was faced with, yet again, 95 degrees and back sweat from the short walk to my car into class. What the heck, mother nature? WYD? It’s October but it feels like the armpits of Satan himself. Last time I checked, having heat flashes was not on my fall bucket list.
Can you relate? Ok, Karen, we get it, you’re from Vermont and your falls are perfect. But all my southern friends can commiserate. It’s hotter than Zac Efron in the Sahara eating jalapenos out here. It’s been 100 degrees since April and we can’t take it anymore. So mother nature, if you’re reading this, help us out. Please bring us some cooler temperatures. My heart needs to wear a flannel.
So, in the spirit of summer, I mean, fall, I present to you 9 Things to Do This Fall!
So have at it, people. These are my suggestions for how to make the most of the season. You heard them here first!
