5 Best Cafes in East Lansing, MI

After much searching around the East Lansing area, I've found a few key go to locations that my friends and I would highly recommend for coffee, brunch, studying, or a place to catch up with friends. It's always nice to leave the bubble of campus and have a change of scenery every now and then.

1. For Crepe Sake

This is by far my favorite café to go to for brunch. They serve a combination of sweet and savory crepes and coffee to satisfy anyones taste! It's located on South Washington Square in Lansing, MI. I recommend trying out the breakfast crepe and the pistachio latte!

2. Strange Matter

A favorite of my friends and mine, this coffee and donut shop has two locations in Lansing and even one that you can reach by taking the Cata bus (the 1 bus down Michigan Ave) if you don't have a car! Along with great coffee, they have a variety of donuts that range from flavors such as lemon lavender to mulled wine. Perfect for when you have a sweet tooth!

3. 1855 Starbucks

Starbucks isn't exactly new to anyone, but this location has a perfect atmosphere for studying. And even thought it's still on campus (located on S. Harrison Rd.), it's an ideal spot for studying and grabbing your favorite drink.

4. Blue Owl

Technically located in Reo Town Lansing, this coffee shop is from removed from the college campus vibes and offers several different creative coffee options. You can have something as fun as an orange vanilla latte or stick to the basics with a cup of regular coffee, there's a ton to choose from!

5. Chapelure 

With adorable latte art, you can't go wrong with going to Chapelure. This coffee shop and bakery has two locations, one at Eastwood Towne Center and the other on Hagadorn Rd. Their bakery menu features items such as chocolate covered strawberries, pumpkin cheesecake, tiramisu, and more!

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
