Falling into autumn

Falling into autumn

Summer is officially over, so it’s time to put away the swimsuits and pull out the sweaters. Fall brings excitement for many people as it signals a new beginning.

Brian Murphy, students admissions officer and broadcasting teacher, shows his excitement for the start of a new season by saying “fall means football… and cooler weather.” 

“I believe that we’re a very capable team with a lot of talent,” states sophmore Josh Fuentes about Mount Pisgah’s varisty football team. “We’re playoff bound without a doubt.”

And with the cooler weather fall brings, Fuentes says that practice is “more energetic and fun because we don’t have to practice in 95 degree weather.” 

Sophomores Kayla Mumma and Kate McGehee add that the cooler weather ushers in new fall fashion with comfy sweaters and boots and that they’re “very excited” for the new season. 

However, because of Georgia’s uncertain weather, others express their frustration.

“The only thing I don’t like about fall is that we live in Georgia, and so it never becomes cold-cold,” says senior Valentina Gauld. “There’s always a slight inbetween, so trying to find an outfit that matches the weather is impossible.” 

“It’s difficult to find a good outfit in this Georgia weather, but I love fall with the fall fashion and colder weather,” agrees senior Mia Shaw. “I especially love the Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes. I live for pumpkin spice lattes.”

Pumpkin spice lattes, enjoyed by students and teachers alike, have become a symbol of the start of fall and a staple of the season.

Junior Matthew Aliff says he “gets a pumpkin spice latte everyday before school” in order to start his day on the right foot.

Fall brings in new opportunities and festivities that many are excited for, and so despite the nostalgia people may feel as another summer ends, the joys that come with fall bring a beautiful new beginning.
