Being a foodie and coming from Seattle kinda goes hand in hand. We have some of the best seafood, fruits, and vegetables here in the great PNW, so it's no wonder so many of these places are top-notch. Seattle is my home, so there is no city I want to lead you guys through by your palette more than this one.

5 Point Cafe

5 Point Cafe came into my life on a staycation in the city with my best friend. If you're looking for a good late night spot, with mystery shots, a+ tier diner food and such an incredible staff, you'll find that right here. The cafe does get quite crowded, especially in the evening and on game days, but if you're okay with the wait, crowded is when the place is the most fun!

What you're ordering: Any food item, but you have to get the mystery shots!

Location: 415 Cedar St, Seattle, WA 98119

Pike Place Bar & Grill

Pike Place Bar & Grill has quickly become my go to spot in the city. With prime real estate, the best staff and unbeatable views of the market, I come here almost everytime i venture downtown. The food is probably the best you'll find on this list, ranging from incredible seafood, to classic favorites like burgers and pasta, you can't go wrong.

What you'll order: Jell-O shots, Mimosa bucket, or anything off the cocktail menu, and to eat, Crab Cakes Benedict.

Location: 90 Pike St, Seattle, WA 98101

Ivar’s Acres of Clams

If you've ever been to downtown Seattle, chances are you've walked past the Ivar's located on the waterfront. Ivar's walk up window is a Seattle staple, truly a pillar of the community, with some killer clam chowder! Now, there is a very fancy sit down restaurant that you can opt-in for, but come on, the walk up window to go and then going to sit by the ocean outside is the way to go.

What you'll order: Clam Chowder, duh!

Location: 1001 Alaskan Way Ste. 102, Seattle, WA 98104

Victrola Coffee and Art

I don't really have much to say about Victrola, besides that it's easily the best coffee you'll find in the city. I tend to frequent the capitol hill location, as that's definetley the superior one. If you're the type to work while at a coffee shop, this is the perfect location.

Location: 411 15th Ave E, Seattle, WA 98112

El Borracho

I know a lot of people are trying to eat at least semi- plant based! El Borracho is perfect for that, or just for someone who really loves Mexican food, because all though dairy and meat aren't present, all of those flavors are on display! In my humble opinion, El Borracho has the best Mexican food in the city, and it's not even close.

What you'll order: as long as you try their salsa, everything else is fair game.

Location: 1521 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98101

Pike Place Chowder

Now, I know I just raved about Ivar's clam chowder, and I do believe it's a+ tier, but Pike Place Chowder may inch them out. The clam chowder here is the creamiest, best seasoned chowder I have ever had. This place is constantly packed, super small and barely has any seating, inside or outside. So if you're venturing into Post Alley to eat here, plan to take your food elsewhere!

What you'll order: Clam Chowder or a lobster roll!

Location: 1530 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101

Dick’s

Dick's is THE Seattle staple! Is it one am and a concert just got out and you're starving? Go to Dick's! My personal favorite location rests in Queen Anne, making it the perfect post Climate Pledge arena show meal. The food is cheap, and one of my favorite greasy guilty pleasures!

What you'll order: A deluxe burger, fries, and two things of tartar sauce

Location: 500 Queen Anne Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

Bok a Bok

Listen, if a place is good enough for the mayor of flavor town himself, Guy Fieri, then it's good enough for me and you. Bok a Bok is a Korean/Southern fusion that we don't even think we could have come up with in our wildest dreams. They're always playing ‘The Office’ (taste!) and always have a line, so get there early, or go late at night!

What you’ll order: Bulgogi tacos!

Location: 1427 10th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122

Zeke’s

Zeke’s has easily become my favorite hangout spot in the city. From top-notch pizza that breaks the mold of what a traditional pizza is, to the best IPAs in town, Zeke’s is where you want to be. Plus, if you sit at just the right table you can eat with a perfect view of the Space Needle, doesn't get much more Seattle-core than that.

What you'll order: Thai Chicken Pizza (I get level four spice, but you do you)

Location: 419 Denny Way, Seattle, WA 98109

Alaskan Sourdough Bakery

I went on a date here, so maybe it's a bit tarnished, but the bread is unbeatable. Not much more to say, it's in a cute location on the waterfront, and has good food, go!

What you'll order: any form of soup in a bread bowl

Location: 1301 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98101

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

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.
