Ah, it’s that time of year: the leaves are dying, geese are flying south for the winter, and the pumpkin spice latte (also, the pumpkin-spice everything), is back at every single Starbucks near you. Yes, people of Watershed, fall has arrived, and it’s going to be cooler than ever!
Autumn in Colorado is bound to be predictably unpredictable, and there’s no guarantee of rainy days and cozy sweater weather. Nonetheless, everyone is ready to bring out all of their comfy sweaters and sweatpants in preparation for the cold season to begin. (Except for me, who forgot that fall is generally cold and hasn’t prepared for these near-winter months of Colorado to begin. Having traveled internationally for the past three years, most recently living in India, I haven’t felt cold weather in years—I am pretty sure that there will be ample complaining on my end, no matter the temperature outside.)
On the other end, Nadia has prepared by assuming the identity of the stereotypical basic white girl. She states with utmost joy that by September 22 (first day of official fall), she had already bought pumpkins, fairy lights, fake leaves in fall colors, and bought a ton of pumpkin spice products. Why? Because Why not.
