In Defense Of The Fall Activities You Call ‘Basic’

Its fall and if you dont know what that entails, you live under a rock a big boulder where you dont have an Instagram and you dont follow every basic daughter who has ever lived on it.

Fall means drinking pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks just to take an Instagram, putting on your most festive flannel simply to take an selfie, hiking up to a pumpkin patch merely to post the scenery (# blessed to be here ), engraving a pumpkin just so you can show your Insta followers how funny and creative you are and raking a huge piling of leaves to jump in just to take an action shot.

I could go on forever. Seriously. Do we consider a trend here?

Fall is the time to be festive and filter the shit out of your life. It is the only day of the year that the colour scheme matches well with just about every Instagram filter including Valencia.

In all honestly, fall is just a naturally pretty season; we thank you Mother Nature.

How could you not enjoy insuring a timeline flooded with beautiful photos of bright orange and yellow leaves falling to the ground? And lets talking here pumpkins; they are seriously so fascinating and they photograph so well.

Not merely in my defense, but in the defense of every other basic girl whos ever posted a basic Instagram and had to hear shit about it from everyone including their own mother, its OKto post your very basic, very festive Instagram.

First of all, can we talk about the price of a pumpkin spice latte? Us basic girls drop a lot of money on cinnamon water with a splashing of milk just to post an Instagram. The median cost of a PSL at Starbucks is currently $5.25 for only a grande. Thats not even a large!

So please, next time you consider a PSL Instagram post understand that photo cost a lot to create.

Secondly, carving pumpkins is not that easy. Behind those artsy photos of a pumpkin with Kim Kardashiansface carved into it are a lot of bruised fingers and bloody hands.

Those special little craving knifes are not user friendly , nor are those stencils that are basically suppose to induce the image almost impossible to screw up.

So please understand, I employed my hands carving that pumpkin for more period than you will ever use your hands for “the worlds largest” good in your life. Yes, carving a pumpkin to post a photo to bless your timeline is for “the worlds largest” good.

Thirdly, do we really think a basic daughter knows how to do any yard run? The answer is no. Clearly , no. Even raking, which seems oh-so-simple is not a task for a basic gal to complete.

However, the foliages need to be arranged into a nice pile for a perfect photo so now I have to use a giant rake.

Lastly, in all of our defenses, do you understand how hard it is to take a decent photo at a pumpkin patch? Its almost as impossible as employing the pumpkin carving stencil the right way.

The illuminating has to be simply right, there cant be too many clouds in the sky and the sad appearing pumpkins that are bruised and covered in grime have to be completely moved out of the frame of the photo.

Oh, and all the parents running around after their screaming infants can ruin just about every photo. Appear how sick this image seems, oh wait that woman in the corner simply ruined it.

Weve all been there, and by there I mean the person who ruins a sick Instagram picture.
