10 Reasons To Love Spring In Milwaukee
Elizabeth Sloan

After a few weeks of wonky weather, the temperatures are finally rising at a comfortably steady pace. Right now, it’s “light jacket weather”, but soon it will be summer. Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a minute to appreciate all the great things about spring in Milwaukee.

1.Dry roads

The shit show that is snow removal in Milwaukee is enough to keep any sane person indoors. But, driving down your first dry road is one of the most exciting things about spring.

2.Waking up

Spring forward is quickly followed by the beginning of bright and cheerful mornings. Instead of being torn away from your dreams by the sound of the plows and sirens, you can rise peacefully with a nice breeze, songs of the birds, and sunlight shining through your windows.

3.March Madness

Whether you make a bracket or not, no one can escape the Madness.

4.Baseball season

Tailgating at Miller Park might as well be Milwaukee’s favorite pastime. Brats and beer on a Wednesday afternoon will turn out to be something you never knew you always wanted.

5.Milwaukee Beer Week

We’re the nation’s second drunkest state for a reason.

6.The Streetcar

Someone, somewhere thought it would be a good idea to bring the streetcar system back to Milwaukee. Although most residents are opposed, rides are free for the first year, so why not?

7.Patio seating

Brunch at Benelux, happy hour at Hollander, and thirsty Thursday at The Wicked Hop are some of my favorite ways to celebrate the return of patio seating in the spring.

8.Tennis in Lake Park

It doesn’t necessarily need to be tennis, although it is an amazing sport, you can join hundreds of people running, walking, biking, or hiking around the streets of Milwaukee in the spring.

9.Darty Szn in the UW System

Whether you’re in Milwaukee, Madison, Whitewater, La Crosse or Oshkosh, darty szn is no joke. See #5.

10.Tax Szn

I shouldn’t need to explain this one. Spend that money.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
