4 Places to Visit in Lincoln This Semester
The Nebraskan

270,000 people. That’s the population of Lincoln, Nebraska. Some people would probably gasp in horror and ask if there is anything to do in a city so small. The answer, is yes. My goal for this (school) year was to break out of my routine coffee shops and restaurants and explore what our college town has to offer. Here’s four places to put on your list for future dinner dates, study breaks, and shopping trips.   

1. Cultiva
Located on South 11th Street between G and H Street is this café and micro-roastery. The menu boasts crepes, coffee and the ever-popular Johnny Cakes (a flat, cornmeal pancake). With a relaxed, hipster atmosphere, it’s the perfect, unique café to try out next time you’re looking for somewhere out of the ordinary. It’s only a short drive from campus and definitely worth the trip. 

2. The Pilgrimer
This retail store meets coffee shop became my go-to for all things on my Christmas shopping list this year. Located on North 12th Street, next to Dempsey’s Burger Pub, The Pilgrimer has more than just coffee to offer its customers. According to their website they feature “the very best handmade and locally sourced goods of eastern Nebraska,” free yoga on Wednesdays and will rent their space for private events. The Pilgrimer also has a membership program in which for $25 a month members can stop in for unlimited tea or coffee. Not sure you want to invest? A cup of coffee is a flat $2 and there are tables in the back if you need a place to study. http://thepilgrimer.com/

3. Little Mountain Print Shoppe
Again, I stumbled upon this business while checking things off my Christmas list. This screen printing shop not only will work with you to design large, custom order t-shirts, but also has a variety of designs and t-shirts ready for purchase. Looking for a Husker hoodie or graphic tee that no one else has? Head to the Little Mountain Print Shoppe on 33rd and B Street. Did I mention how cozy and comfortable these tee’s are? My new choice designer for any new hoodies & tees. (Hint: A few of their tees are also sold at The Pilgrimer.) http://www.littlemountainprint.com/

4. Tsuru
Located on North 14th and O Street, this boutique offers trendy name-brand clothes as well as pieces from various local designers. If you’re looking for a unique accessory or just something new to add to your wardrobe, Tsuru is the place to visit. Keep an eye out for their Basic Bones jewelry & Free People attire.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
