To 2018!

October

October is upon us and the weather has at last begun to give us chilly fall vibes after the slightly extended summer we enjoyed in September. Autumn is representative of change, of crunching our way towards refreshed outlooks, and added layers. Perhaps the feeling of change comes less from growing up with a September-starting academic year, but actually is reflective of our natural environment. The biggest visual change we see in the environment? Leaf colors!
