7 Things Michigan Does As Well, If Not Better, Than Any Other State

From football to going up north, there are so many things to love about Michigan.

7 Things Michigan Does As Well, If Not Better, Than Any Other State

1. All four seasons

Spring, summer, fall, and winter. We have it all! All temperatures, all precipitation. It is the absolute best.

2. The lakes

Not only do we have the Great Lakes, no salt, and no sharks! We have smaller yet beautiful lakes all throughout the state. We also have Higgins, Houghton, and Crystal Lake!

3. Going "Up North"

Going "Up North" for holiday weekends and camping all through the summer. Summers were always spent with family and friends taking long weekend trips to the upper parts of this beautiful state. Tubing down the river, late night bonfires, and getting fried to a crispy shade of red. Those are the best parts of being up north.

4. The snow!!

I absolutely love the snow, maybe not shoveling and driving in it. Yet, snowmen and sledding were some of the highlights of my childhood. It is so beautiful and magical.

5. Football

Big House

Friday nights, all day Saturday and Sunday. Football is on, and yelling at the TV is in full force. While I may be biased, the Michigan State and University of Michigan is the best rivalry ever. Football is all-around fun. From high school to college, and yes, even the Lions in the NFL, no matter what level it is amazing to watch.

6. The Concerts

From Ford Field to Soaring Eagle on the hill, the concert venues are endless. DTE and Van Andel Arena are just two more to name some of the breathtaking places to watch live music!

7. Beautiful Scenery

The UP, Mackinac Island, The Ledges, Lake Michigan, and Frankenmuth. So many beautiful places, and scenes. Picture perfect places, in this picture perfect place.

Michigan, the mitten state. The Wolverines, Spartans, Tigers, and Lions. We love them all. The beautiful places and all of the weather changes. Michigan is such a gorgeous state, and I love living here!!

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.
