he fall air is slowly setting in, making us thankful for cooler temperatures and reminding us that yet another year is flying by. And as we get into the swing of the school
year, freshmen are finding their routines while seniors are faced with the reality of graduation.
This is my favorite time of year, not just because of the fashion or football, but because fall seems to bring everyone a little closer. The spirit of fall is unlike any other season, especially in Athens.
Driving down Milledge Avenue on a Friday evening and seeing everyone enjoying the sunset and cool breeze. Clutching a warm cup of coffee on the way to an early morning class. Shooting the breeze in good company with a cold beer in hand. Doesnt get any better.
Theres nothing I love more than seeing a blue sky, then stepping outside wearing a cardigan to keep warm. Fall provides a sense of nostalgia while still bringing about the feeling of urgency to plan out your next life move.
So while we revel in the goodness of this wonderful time of year, look forward to the good times together.
See you next month.

THERE IS NEVER AN EXCUSE TO DRINK BAD BEER
Drinking alcohol is definitely a common subject in songs that transcends genres. And its rock stars who have perhaps the greatest reputation for drinking heavily (in addition to partying and doing lots of drugs). Heres a playlist that appeals to the highs and lows of drinking all the tracks are performed by classic rock bands/singers. In true party spirit, hard, bluesy riffs and driving rhythms are standard for all the songs on this list. The lyrics take you through the night and all the way home, whether it is with or without a mate. Cheers!

Although Georgia has an open primary system (cheat sheet: that means you can vote in the pri-mary of either party no matter your registered political affiliation), not every one of you on cam-pus will participate in electing a Republican can-didate for president. This is a national trend far fewer voters participate in primaries than gen-eral elections so dont take it personally, but its no reason to disengage with the poli
