Fall is the perfect season. It is still sunny, yet cool enough (but not freezing) to break out the sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes. Take advantage of the best season (in my opinion, at least) with the following activities.
1. Embrace The Holiday Drinks
Pumpkin spice lattes, salted caramel mochas, apple cider… yum! Maybe it is only because they are only available for three months out of year, but there is something seriously magical about fall beverages. Have a scavenger hunt to find the best fall-flavored latte in town and try out all of your local coffee shops (probably an activity done best not in a single day).
2. Crafts And Decorations
There are a ridiculous amount of crafts that are great decorations, fun to make, and start getting you in the holiday spirit. Although Halloween just ended – which is always fun to decide what costume to be, how to carve your pumpkin, and all of the spooky decorations – there is still Thanksgiving! How creative can you get with turkeys??
3. Enjoy The Fall Scenery
The collage of orange, red, and yellow leaves falling to the ground are gorgeous, and never lasts as long as you think it will! Finding a scenic road to drive, or a tree-lined street to admire and walk down, is one way to (as cheesy as it sounds) enjoy nature’s beauty. This will also help you relax and clear your mind from any current stress.
4. Go To A Pumpkin Patch
Pumpkin patches are a fantastic place to find the best pumpkin! Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween. They are great additions to any Thanksgiving setting, especially for the perfect touch for any visiting family members to see. While you are there, go on a hayride or get lost in a corn maze. And when you find the perfect pumpkin or finally find your way out of the maze? Enjoy a caramel apple and sip some hot apple cider. Perfection!
Enjoy the fall while it lasts! It is getting cold fast and winter is soon approaching! What is your favorite fall activity?
There are some great movies that have recently been released or will be coming out very soon! Now is the perfect time to journey out to movie theaters because the weather is getting colder and it is nice to get warm and cozy in a theater with some steaming popcorn. Be sure to check out these four highly anticipated movies:
1. Don Jon (September 27th)
Although this has already been out for a while, it may still be out in some theaters. If not, check it out when it gets released on DVD if you are looking to break away from your books for a laugh. Don Jon is the story of a guy (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who likes to watch pornography on his computer while trying to maintain a relationship with a woman (played by Scarlett Johansson) who is looking for prince charming. It is a great comedy perfect for college students.
2. Gravity (October 4th)
For fans of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, this is the movie for you! Both actors are on a space mission and get stuck in space alone after their shuttle is destroyed in an accident. The graphics alone are enough to prove that this movie is stellar, not to mention how it gets your adrenaline pumping!
3. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (November 22nd)
This is one of the most talked about films of the season; the second film of the Hunger Games series. In this film, Katinss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (played by Josh Hutcherson) are being targeted by the Capitol after they cause a rebellion with their actions in the last Hunger Games. Definitely a must-see!
4. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (December 13th)
This movie is such a MUST-SEE! It is the second of the “Hobbit” films and continues the journey that Bilbo and the dwarves began in the first movie. All Lord of the Rings fans must go see this movie!
So head on out and see any one, if not all, of these movies! And remember to always ask if they offer a student discount when purchasing your ticket!
