Fall on Campus
There is always something bittersweet about fall. The impending winter, maybe the naked leaves too. Its like you’re meant to embrace the beauty of this dying year, dying tree, and dying warmth. But even college admits this oncoming change and fall break came as a big stress relief post mid-terms. I went to visit my roommate’s house, bonded with her sister’s pet snake and even managed to smooch her beagle. It was fun and short. Then I came back on campus and one of my floor mates is decked-out in a long mink coat and bowler hat, à la Macklemore. Another cheerful celebration before the onset of snow boots and Uggs: Halloween. I have never been a part of halloween but I am pretty much excited about impersonating some pop icon.
I don’t quite understand the point of bracing oneself for winter. Sure, its all sad and everything, but there is so much about fall that is cool and bittersweet. I like me some bittersweet weather.
P.S: As a personal tradition, I’ve always singled out one album to play for every fall. This year, I chose: Kasabian’s West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. The title is outrageous albeit very rock. So I just decided I might as well.
