7 Reasons Why You Should Visit Maine
Krista Bauer

have traveled many places in my life, but one of my favorite trips my family and I have ever been on was when we went to Maine. Maine offers beautiful scenery, outside activities, and some of the best food. Here are 7 reasons why you should visit Maine at least once.

1. Acadia National Park

The views at Acadia are some of the best you will ever see with the coastline of the ocean and pine tree forests nearby. Acadia offers many places to hike and contains many walking paths.

2. Lobster

Maine is farther north than a lot of the rest of the eastern states. This makes the weather cooler and breezier, even in the summer.

3. The People

Going out east all the way up to Maine made it all that worth it once you experienced the hospitality these people have!

4. The Wildlife

Other than lobster, Maine is also known for its moose further inland. In the ocean, there are many sea creatures including dolphins, seals, and whales.

5. Mild Weather

Maine is farther north than a lot of the rest of the eastern states. This makes the weather cooler and breezier, even in the summer.

6. Relaxation

With all of the scenery and wildlife around you, how can you not be relaxed while visiting Maine? It's the ultimate breath of fresh air...literally.

7. Small Towns With Big Hearts

One of the biggest commodities in Maine is the tourism, but the locals are very welcoming to vacationers. They love sharing their outdoor heaven to everyone who visits!

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
