29 Things Only People From St. Louis Would Understand

You never really understand how unique our city is that we live in until you take a step back. There are definitely teams that we are proud of, roots that we enjoy digging, words that only we say, and food that you literally can only find in STL. To think of living somewhere else is definitely a game changer.

We all want to leave and explore all that this world has to offer, but let's be real, we will always have a little STL blood in us. (Not to mention that STL blood is blue. Sorry, it was just a good chance to throw in some STL Blues love) Even if you do end up moving away, here are a few things that you may see are not found in your new home. Only those who are from St. Louis will understand.

1. Cardinals. That's really it... Besides the fact that Cubs fans are dead to us.

2. And so are Blackhawks fans for that matter.

3. 44 = Farty Far.

4. "OPE! Just gonna sneak right past ya!"

5. We go to the zoo for free.

6. BPV.

7. The City Museum is the only place you will test your fear of heights.

8. You grew up stressing out whether or not you'd get a Six Flags pass for Christmas or your birthday.

9. Gooey butter cake.

10. Toasted ravioli.

11. Sun Drop.

12. If you drink anything other than Bud Light, you're a cheater. (I guess Natty Light is acceptable for all of you cheap college students...)

13. "I'm from the Lou and I'm proud." - Nelly

14. Fitz's rootbeer.

15. The Gateway Arch... Let's be real, we've all been there once and never go again but we recommend it to everyone.

16. RIP to the Rams.

17. "What high school did you go to?"

18. It's Bread Co. Definitely NOT Panera.

19. 270 is the largest parking lot in STL.

20. You find Styrofoam QT cups everywhere.

21. People NEVER use their dang blinkers.

22. Imo's, the square beyond compare!

23. Provel cheese.

24. You must look nice to go shopping at Frontenac Mall otherwise you feel out of place.

25. Going to the lake is a vacation.

26. The Magic House has turned into the Magic mansion, without that exact name but it has definitely expanded overtime.

27. You always end up having some sort of connection with everyone.

28. What happened to Chesterfield Mall?

29. Experiencing multiple seasons in one week.

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.

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

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? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

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. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
