November Is Not Depressing

November is the black sheep of months. Everyone seems to hate November, deeming it the most depressing month of all, but we at Mojo disagree. Here are nine awesome things to love about the new month, especially this year, in no particular order. We hope they will change your heart.

1. The win

We kicked off the month with a win against Arizona which, by the way, wasn’t even our safety school. In case you missed it, the Bruins beat the Wildcats 17-7 in Saturday’s football game. If that’s not a good start to November, we don’t know what is.

2. Daylight savings

On the night of the victory, we also got to sleep one more hour. But wait, IT GETS BETTER.

3. The cooler weather

So the whole “summer all year round” thing is cool and all, but sweating your way to class is not exactly the best. Besides, now you get to wear those jackets and UGG boots that were collecting dust in the back of your closet. Did somebody say, “sweater weather”?

4. The USC game

The biggest, most important football game of the season is a home game this year AND it’s not during Thanksgiving. Read: Den Sports Pass holders will get to cheer on the Bruins and curse the Trojans to their heart’s desire.

5. Thanksgiving

Surely the holiday makes you hate November just a little less. Sweet potato casserole, stuffing and cranberry sauce make all your hard work in school SO worth it. And, you know, family is okay too.

6. Black Friday

Who says Black Friday means trampling people in your local mall to score some sweet deals? Ah, the holidays.

7. Fall meets Christmas at Starbucks

The coffee giant brings back its iconic red Christmas cup every year on Nov. 1. You can now drink happiness in the form of a Gingerbread Latte, Peppermint Mocha or Caramel Brulée Latte, but this doesn’t mean you have to give up on your pumpkin spice just yet. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is still on the menu through December. Thus, fall meets Christmas. Boom.

8. Fall meets Christmas IRL

The dream continues beyond the plush atmosphere of your local Starbucks. Stores everywhere are whipping out the Christmas candy, decorations and gifts. Add a few classic carols in the background, and we’re not complaining. Been to Ackerman lately?

9. It’s not midterms, not yet finals

If you chose your major wisely, you will have at least one week of lull this month when you can sit back and enjoy your blatant lack of midterms before it’s time to think about finals. And goodness knows you’ll have deserved that rest.
