Ya feelin’ lucky, punk? Well…do ya?” Nope because life has no meaning. Jk. I hope.

I hope you all are well this October morn, and I hope you are excited about fall.

I know I am because it’s my favorite season. Why? I love the cool air, the color of the leaves, and the climax of the cross country season.

I love these things because cool is my favorite weather. Give me sixty degrees, a T-shirt, jeans, and a hoodie, and I’ll be right at home. And the leaves! They are just beautiful. I have always liked warm fall colors. Cross country, of course, (ha! Of course?) is my favorite sport, and each season is a whole new story.

Nothing completes a story like, well, the rest of it: an exciting turning point, soft’n’sweet falling action, and a fulfilling resolution that leaves your heart content. I look forward to the end of a season because it is the culmination of the pain, sweat, and tears of the entire season.

This time, it shall be a bittersweet ending because it is my last season of cross country here at BHS. I will always miss it dearly.

There are many other reasons that I love fall, like Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Being the child I am, I love candy and sugar. Especially chocolate (All hail the chocolate gods!). Also, I like all of the costumes because I am a nerd who is into pop culture.

Additionally, I have had the privilege to trick-or-treat for UNICEF, a UN program that helps provide essentials to children all around the world who don’t have them. For this, I have gone around town with friends to trick-or-treat for donations, as opposed to candy, though we always accept candy (om-nom). We did this through Spanish Club, BTW.

Being a hungry boi, I love food, food, and more food, things Thanksgiving provides.

Yes, yes, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking time to appreciate the innumerable number of things God has given me and my loved much appreciated ones.

Before I sign off, I’d like to start an experiment. Tell me your favorite season or send a note to Newspaper.

I’ll put the results in the next issue of Cat Tracks. Enjoy the rest of fall, and stay golden.
