We Need A Holiday For Act Like A Kid Again Day

We Need A Holiday For Act Like A Kid Again Day

You don't have to be a grown up every day.

I am declaring a day this year where everyone gets to act like a kid again. No work. No school assignments. No paperwork.

We will start our morning with wildberry pop tarts and Zabomafoo on tv. Or maybe we can make a blend of 20 different kinds of cereal into our colored bowls with built-in straws.

Following the morning rituals, you'll have a fort building contest with your siblings. You will pick the perfect table in the basement and fling your self-tied fleece blanket over the top and onto the chairs. Lining the outside with pillows, you craft the perfect sign. Mine is "Kort's Fort".

You get to hide all morning in your fort away from the necessities and responsibilities of adult life. There's no taxes or emails to respond to. You can even have nap time!

Coloring is next on the agenda. Let your imagination soar. There are no "adult coloring books" or paint by number. There is no recipe for a beautiful masterpiece. Just you and your mind.

Lunch consists of Fruit by the Foot, Uncrustable PB&J, clementine cuties, and cucumbers with smiley faces cut out. You don't have to worry about your paleo keto whole 30 bullshit salad because it's Kid Day!

The rest of the afternoon is filled doing whatever you wanted to do as a kid. Going to the park and swinging, playing littlest pet shop, having a GI Joe war, are just a few examples.

Play a game. Fly a kite. Play tag with some friends - let them know why you're playing though to save an awkward encounter.

The purpose for Kid day is let yourself be free from being an adult, even if it's just for a day. Don't be afraid to be naive and love the world for what it is - a playground.

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.


If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
