Fun Fall Activities

Fall is a season of many cheerfully chilly activities. Whether you like to rake leaves and jump in the pile or get lost in a corn maze, there are still plenty of fun activities that are available during the season. Fall activities include: hey rides, apple picking, camping, renting a cabin, cooking, collecting leaves, watching football, planting for spring, running a race, taking a road trip, cleaning, and most importantly, remembering what you are thankful for. Fall makes a great time to go on a vacation during school break also, but it is not necessary if you enjoy Thanksgiving at home with family. There are still many more activities up for option during the fall season, but these are most likely the best choices to choose from before Christmas hits.

The Riverfront Skate Park

Skateboarders as a whole aren't the most well known kind of people. People stereotype skaters as hateful, angry, and destructive people, so not many people want skaters to skate anywhere near them. They are afraid that the skaters ware going to break something or graffiti something when they aren't like that at all. Skaters just want to skate, nothing more nothing less. With skateboarding dying in this area the Tony Hawk Foundation came to the city of Huntington and set up a fund raiser and competition with the winner getting a thousand dollars donated to the park in their name. The competition brought hundreds of skaters from around the tri-state area to come and skate with everyone.  Beginners and pro alike came done just to hang out and skate to help give us the skate park we deserve. After a year of building, the Riverfront skate park was finally built by skaters, for skaters. They actually gave us the stuff we wanted to skate like stairs, ramps, rails, and ledges. They are still adding stuff to this day because they want to keep the skate scene alive. After all, this is our park to skate.


The book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People teaches powerful life lessons in personal change. I personally think that every young person, whether it be a boy or girl, should read this book. The book teaches how to have an effective, happy productive life and how to achieve your goals. My favorite quote out of this book, in the words of William George Jordan, "Into the hands of every individual is given a marvelous power for good or evil-the silent, unconscious, unseen influence of his life. This is simply the constant radiation of what man really is, not what he pretends to be." I have read much of the book and to fully understand the seven habits you must understand your own "paradigms" or "views" and how to make a "paradigm shift" for yourself.

This book was written by "Stephen R. Covey".

The Turkey Dinner

The turkey dinner only comes around once a year. It is my favorite time of the year right behind Christmas dinner. Personally I like Christmas dinner better but the Thanksgiving dinner is a close second. I just know people can't wait to eat on that wonderful day. Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma's house is my favorite past time forever and always. Watching the Thanksgiving football games is always fun especially after you eat and are stuffed to the brim. To conclude Thanksgiving dinner is a special time of year.

Rad Recipes: Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Recently, I found myself having a hankering for some good old-fashioned chicken nuggets. Since I am not fortunate enough to live within 25 minutes of any fast food restaurant, I was forced to make some myself. On my quest for the best recipe to fill my needs, I stumbled across a simple, tasty one that happened to be rated four-and-half out of five stars and required only 15 minutes of prep. I'd like to share it with you in case you ever run across a dilemma such as mine.

The ingredients are as follows:
Chicken Nuggets

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon seasoned salt

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs

2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

2 chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
Vegetable oil, for frying

  • In a plastic bag, mix the flour, seasoned salt and some salt and pepper. In a bowl, mix the eggs with 2 tablespoons water. In a separate bowl, add the breadcrumbs.
  • Shake the chicken pieces in the bag to coat. In batches, dip them in the egg wash, then in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until a few breadcrumbs dropped in the oil start to sizzle immediately. Fry the chicken, in batches if needed, until golden brown and cooked through, a couple minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel and serve with ketchup.

Pumpkin Treats

Food is the source of our energy. we as human beings need it to survive and to perform our daily tasks. Sometimes we like to indulge on very tasty foods and enjoy them, Pumpkin flavored foods are some of the best foods in my opinion. Pumpkin flavored donuts are absolutely extraordinary and enjoyable during any season in my opinion. Pumpkin cookies are good too, but not on the same level as pumpkin donuts, To conclude pumpkin treats are some of the best foods you can consume
