The Midwest is made up of Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Minnesota. If you have lived in one of these states for a good amount of time, these things may be familiar.

1. "Ope"

Ope, I bumped you. Ope, dropped my phone. Ope. Ope. Ope.

Because as you're saying goodbye, you remember 20 things you need to tell them.

3. Pop

It's pop, not soda or coke. Unless you specifically want Coke.

4. Euchre

You've either played it or at least heard of it and know someone who does play it.

5. Puppy chow

The most delicious blend of chocolate, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and cereal.

6. Shorts weather is 50+ degrees

Especially after a long winter, you're bound to want to wear shorts when that temperature hits 50.

7. You can drive in any kind of weather

When it rains, storms, snows, sleets, hails, or is windy every day, you're pretty trained to drive in anything.

8. The right lane is for cruising. The left lane is for passing.

Don't be that person who cruises in the left lane.

9. College football

You're either a Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame, or Michigan State fan when it comes to college football. Or you're well aware of the rivalries.

10. Lakes

Saltwater, who? We swim in the thousands of lakes, including the Great Lakes.

11. Corn fields

Majority of the Midwest is cornfield. We watch it "get knee high by the Fourth of July" and then get turned into a corn maze by October.

12. Cedar Point

Cedar Point is THE place to be in the summertime.

13. Fireflies

Those things that fly in the air and whose butts light up? Those are fireflies.

14. Flat

Majority of the Midwest is made up of flatland. And as soon as you leave the Midwest, you'll realize how flat it actually is and will comment on the hills/mountains.

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.
