IT’S OFFICIALLY AUTUMN! That means it is time for fallish activities. So I have compiled some things to do while enjoying the crisp fall air.
- Cheer on the Titans! Grab your friends and head to one of the many sports events that Wesleyan has to offer. If you’re lucky, you might even see me there!
- Eat something with pumpkin in it, whether it is a pumpkin bagel or that pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks. Anything with pumpkin in it is bound to make you love the fall weather that is upon us. And while you’re at it, you might as well carve one too. Have a contest to see who can carve the scariest pumpkin. Now that I’d like to see.
- Like Apples? Visit Curtis Orchard & Pumpkin Patch in Campaign. This is the closest apple orchard to Bloomington-Normal, but it is well worth a visit. They have HAYRIDES, CORN MAZE, PETTING ZOO, and of course APPLE PICKING! http://www.curtisorchard.com/
- Go outside. There are only going to be so many nice days left, so get outside and enjoy them while you can. Walk/run/bike on Constitution Trail, eat lunch on the quad, or start a Frisbee game. Enjoy the weather while it lasts.
Fall is my favorite time of year, but this weather is a little tricky. One minute it feels like summer weather and the next it feels like Fall. I may have to have a little chat with Mother Nature, you know us fictional characters, to sort this whole thing out. Until then, embrace the weather as best you can.
