7 Insta-Worthy Spots In Indianapolis
Linete Taina

I'm a person that really enjoys photography and I always had a problem finding places to take pictures. After going to downtown, I realized that Indianapolis is a lot more than just corn fields. There's a lot of nature, brick walls, even a canal, and many art walls along the canal. The more I researched the more places I found and new things to do. Indianapolis has many things to do: the Canal, the Circle or the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, Butler University (I have to plug my own college), museums, and more nature like places. So I put together all of the pictures from all of the places, I've dragged my friends with me just for pictures.

1. Visit Southeastway Park 

Southeastway Park is in the South Indianapolis area, its a great nature area with a track and park area. Nature gives an amazing background which represents Indiana a lot and the perfect lighting add a bright effect on her face.

2. Find a local park 

The weather was perfect as the sun was not out so it made a calm picture. This park is really close to my high school so it was the easiest spot to take nice pictures in the local area. There were so many pictures from both of these photo shoots, it was really hard deciding what pictures to use.

3. Go to Children's Garden Park 

This area is in Greenwood near Mrs. Curls, which is a famous ice cream shop. The park had many areas that were amazing for pictures. I still remember that day, it was freezing cold like I was dying to even hold the camera. But the pictures were worth it.

4. Visit the Soldiers and Sailors Monument 

The Soldiers and Sailors Monument has a mix of everything you would want in a picture: water, flowers, brick walls and the city vibe. I personally recommend the circle a lot because it offers so much for really amazing pictures.

5. Stop at the center of the capitol 

It's basically the center of the Capital, and you will always find a new area to take a picture. Trust me, I've taken all of my friend's pictures there, and none of the pictures look the same as the other. They're all unique.

6. Stop by the White River Canal 

Don't even get me talking about the Canal, its SOO beautiful like its amazing. Indianapolis is known for its man-made White River Canal that offers biking, boating, and canoeing. The brilliant backgrounds that the canal has, the walls filled with art, the water fountains, the view, and the greenery.

7. Head to the canal downtown 

I don't know if you realized I really believe in order to have a brilliant picture you need an amazing background to draw attention to the person in the picture. And the Canal is the best spot for water background as Indiana is in the Midwest so were located far away from any large body of water, which makes me sad because I love being by the water.

8. Visit the Indiana State Capitol 

My friends and I were just walking to the canal because that's where we were going to take pictures, but on the way, we passed by these huge building that had great structure. I yelled, "someone go stand there, go quickly." By this time my friends were annoyed with me. The glass windows and the huge white towers just give more attention to who's in the picture.

9. Campuses, like Butler University, are perfect spots 

Here comes my favorite place, Butler University. You get everything in this college setting. It gives everything you get from Indianapolis as a whole. Nature, water, and brick walls which all connect to amazing pictures.

10. Visit a local art museum, like Newfields or the MIA 

My French class in high school would take us to the MIA every year. We would look at the art, but my friends always focused on the gardens, we literally had a hiking group. Being outdoors is my big thing and just being with my friends taking nice pictures is just happiness. I wanna thank my friends for supporting me and letting me torture them for all of these pictures. Love you guys!

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.

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.
