10 Signs You Grew Up In A Small Town

Whether you admit it or not, that tiny town will always have your heart.

10 Signs You Grew Up In A Small Town
The Odyssey

1. You still talk to people that you went to elementary school with.

These are the people you grew up with and the people you graduated high school with. The faces you see in kindergarten are the same faces you’ll see for the rest of your life.

2. When people ask where you’re from, you just mention the nearest Metropolitan city to your home town.

No one has ever heard of your town, anyway.

3. You fully expect to run into at least 3 people you know when you’re going out.

Everywhere you go- the grocery store, the post office, the gas station- you’re bound to run into somebody.

4. Plans for Friday night include walking around the nearest Walmart.

There really isn’t much else to do so you have to make your own fun somehow.

5. It's a normal thing to get caught behind a tractor on the road.

It made you late to school countless times, but at least your teachers could relate.

6. Your teachers always call you by your sibling’s names.

In a town that's small, there’s no doubt that they’ve taught at least one of them.

7. Friday nights revolved around what sports team was playing.

Friday nights were dedicated to football and winter was dedicated to basketball. Every Friday in fall the entire town will be their repping the team’s colors.

8. You and your friends just drove around at night blasting music because there was nothing else to do.

With no destination in mind, you know the town like the back of your hand. So many memories were made just by driving around.

9. It’s a big deal when a new restaurant opens up in town.

When you’ve had the same restaurants for your entire life, there’s no doubt that it will become the newest hang out spot among your peers.

10. Everyone talks about leaving but once you’re gone, you know you’ll miss it.

Whether you like it or not, it’s the place you were born and raised and it will always be home to you, no matter where life take you.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
