10 o’clock List: Things to Instagram Besides the Cliched but Beautiful Fall Leaves

NO ONE WANTS YOUR MIDDLE PATH IN THE FALL INSTAGRAM, K?

Even on the off-chance you haven’t been here or here, you’ve probably noticed that Kenyon is rather photogenic. You’ve probably also noticed that everyone with an iPhone is a photographer–add  an Instagram filter, selective focus and an ironic border — voila — Art!  As the green leaves of summer burst into red and orange and yellow, it may be especially tempting to clog your follower’s feeds with foliage. Here some suggestions for equally seasonal and collegiate, but less leafy, snapshots.

1. Books

2. Bed

After navigating the long, arduous trek northwards, nothing is more satisfying than exhibiting an artsy pic of my comfy comfy bed.

3. Nature

4. Food

The Deli is half-way between my bed and Peirce. Convenient? Yes. Delicious? Yes. Promoting bad, bad habits? Undoubtably. But if you take a picture, the calories don’t count! Amiright?

5. Windows

After a desperate attempt at studying, gaze through the glass panes of Ascension’s huge windows. Note the rolling hills,  the low-floating clouds, the patchwork quilt of farmland fading back into the horizon. And take a picture.

  1. Can someone please start an instagram or blog where they order and take pictures of every single sandwich at the Deli? Starting with the Pearl Girl or Steeler on a Roll (FUN FACT: it’s even better on a croissant!)
