Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter.
Fall. Not Autumn. Fall. Who says Autumn? Is there somewhere in the world where it is spring, summer, autumn, winter? I’m truly curious.
FALL IS UPON US!
For the past few months, I’ve worked on being excited about things—not in the sense that I’m turning myself into an obnoxious human being, but because being excited is decades away from dreading something.
I’m great at dreading the things I have no control over. I want to channel that energy into being excited about the things I have no control over. (Good thing I don’t have a problem with control.)
Perhaps you’re dreading the start of a new school year and all that comes with it. Maybe this can help you out!
I’ll stop playing Psychologist now and get to the list.
1. The cool weather.
California has had a scorching summer. We’ve been toying with the 100 degree mark since June.
Being that we are Californians, we thought this was the end of the world as we know it. Luckily we were wrong.
2. Leather jackets.
What piece of clothing instantly makes an outfit look cool? A leather jacket.
What piece of clothing makes you cool? A leather jacket.
What piece of clothing will shriek and die if you get it wet? A leather jacket.
But you’ll be cool, dude.
Shoutout to the girls with this one! Are you ready?
3. Less shaving.
There, there. Shh. I know. You’re so giddy that you want to cry. I understand.
Here. Put on this long sleeve blouse and leggings. You’ve earned it. You’ve made it through the summer. Now rest.
4. Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
P.S. Coming from an ex-barista, Starbucks makes the best one. Honor where honor is due.
6. Freezing to death on the bleachers of a fall Football game.
That’s some people’s idea of a good time.
7. Candy and costumes!
I’m already planning my costume for this year (going for a Tim Burton theme)! Who’s with me!
I’m so excited.
BRING ON THE BOOTS AND CARDIGANS!
