9 Reasons I Miss Kansas City

9 Reasons I Miss Kansas City

Now that I'm living in a different city, I've realized that my pride for my hometown is too real. Kansas City is the place to be, and I miss living there more than anything. Here are just a few reasons why I miss KC.

1. BBQ

I'm not particularly fond of barbecue, but man oh man, if you give me some barbecue from Kansas City, I'll eat it. You don't know barbecue until you've been in KC.

2. Sports

Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, you name it. Sports games in Kansas City are like no other. The fans are crazy passionate whether our team is first or last, and that is something that I would not trade for the world.

3. Ward Parkway

This sounds weird, but I didn't realize how much I would take driving on Ward Parkway for granted.

4. Plaza

The Kansas City Country Club Plaza is one of the best places. From spending every weekend there in seventh grade, to seeing the mass mayhem from Pokemon Go, the plaza is a key element to the city for all ages. Also, lets not forget how pretty it is during Christmas season.

5. Loose Park

I did not realize how awesome Loose Park was until too soon before I left. Grabbing a blanket and a few friends and going to Loose is a great way to relax.

6. St. Teresa's Academy

Shoutout to my home girls at the Academy. Miss you all every day.

7. KC Pride

Part of the reason I miss Kansas City is the insane pride that Kansas Citians have. Even though sometimes there is division, whether you are from Kansas City, Missouri (KCMO) or Kansas City, Kansas (KCK) you love your city like no other.

8. Winsteads

Winsteads is not just a "fast-food joint". It is a classic restaurant with a classic burger. "We're having fun the Winsteads way."

9. Home

Home [Kansas City]: a place where your feet may leave, but your heart will always be.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
