5 Reasons The Houston Rodeo Should Be On Your Bucket List

A Texas tradition.

5 Reasons The Houston Rodeo Should Be On Your Bucket List

Over the last couple of weeks, an annual Texas traditional once again took place: the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. With over 2 million people visiting and thousands of volunteers, the Rodeo is more than just boots and cowboy hats. Here are just a few reasons the Houston Rodeo should be on your list of things to see in your life.

1. The concerts.

Whether you're a die-hard country music fan or just there for the experience, the concerts at the rodeo are unforgettable and incredible.

2. All of the possible food you can imagine... but fried.

This is an Oreo. Fried. And covered in powdered sugar.

3. You may find your long lost twin.

Or at least have a good time at the petting zoo.

4. Rides and games as far as your eyes can see.

Just make sure you don't eat too many of those fried Oreos before going on any super-fast-spinning rides (oops).

5. Mutton Bustin'.

Little kids hanging onto sheep as they run around a stadium. Could there be anything cuter?

And there you have it — just a few of the reasons the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo should be on your bucket list!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
