Fall is probably the best season, and while I say that about every season as it approaches, I really mean it this time. Smart Ass Voice Writers unanimously agree that nothing beats the excitement of fall. I can't help but smile as I walk out my front door on a crisp fall morning, wearing a scarf or sweater that hasn't seen the light of day in at least three months. I love feeling the cold on the tip of my nose on a chilly September day, the kind that promises some relief from the summer heat.
And there is absolutely nothing better than Boston in the fall, as Smart Ass Voice Writers know very well. Granted, we miss a good bit of foliage that the suburbs of New England boast of, but who can't live without a couple of leaves changing? We'll take the steadfast coniferous trees that line the streets any day, because, really, leaves are supposed to be green anyway!
Even better, no one can deny the excitement of Boston tourism in the fall. Smart Ass Voice Writers agree that nothing is more adorable than hoards of Asian and European tourists losing their shit over the dirty, food stealing, sometimes legless squirrels that roam the Common. I love hearing tourists' squeals of delight as a tiny scavenger takes a cracker from between their fingers with its little paws. If I have to fight my way through crowds on my way to class, I'd prefer it to be of this sort.
And what about school?! The first week of classes is the best week for Smart Ass Voice Writers. I'm not sure about everyone else, but I work hard to save my money so I can spend at least $300 on books that I generally am not required to read. I would much rather spend it on something useful, like overpriced, never to be opened text books, than things I just kind of want, like fixing the rattling muffler in my car! That would just be silly.
Of course, fall has its drawbacks too, but this really isn't the proper arena for those! Smart Ass Voice Writers love Boston in the fall, and really, who doesn't?
