10 Perfect Date Spots In Springfield, Missouri For The Couple Who's Sick Of Netflix and Chill

In my opinion, one of the hardest parts about dating is coming up with and finding a good place to spend time with your SO if you aren't looking for a Netflix and chill kind of night. There are so many cute ideas. Go on a hiking date. Go to a coffee shop and just talk. Go to a nice restaurant. Dating is hard as is, and if you can't think of a good date idea, then you probably aren't going to go on a lot of them.

It's one of my favorite places in Springfield. The hike was a bit longer than what I was expecting the first time I went but the scenery makes it worth it. It honestly doesn't feel like it's by a big city and right next to the intersection of two major highways.

Lake Springfield

This is also another great place to go for a hike or even for kayaking.

It's one of my favorite local restaurants here in town. It's a great place for a bite to eat, a glass of wine, and some good conversations.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

Thinking of watching a movie with someone special? The Alamo Drafthouse is hands down the best movie theater in town. There is no argument about that. Who doesn't want to watch the latest movies with some good food? I know I do.

Andy's Frozen Custard

Andy's is really one of the only places I will go for ice cream. It's just so freaking good. Getting some frozen custard while listening to music and having a good chat in the car is such a cute date idea. It sounds so fun to me!

Travellers House

Coffeehouse dates, in my opinion, are some of the best. It's a good place for good conversations and even better coffee.

Ott's is another good place to get Italian food in Springfield. It has quick and easy service and amazing food.

Wonders of Wildlife

Out of all the places on this list, this is probably the most expensive place for a date - but it sure is one of the coolest places in Springfield. You and your date can spend hours looking at all types of wildlife!

Personally, I am a huge fan of going to museums and looking at art. Looking at art with someone special sounds like the perfect day to me!

 Phelps Grove Park

This is one of my favorite parks in town to go for a good walk. Good walks can lead to good conversations!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
