The Marvels Of Marquette Michigan

A photo journal of my recent exploration of Marquette.

The Marvels Of Marquette Michigan
Amanda Neumann

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is truly a natural wonder. It contains Pictured Rocks in Munising, Escarpment Trail in the Porcupine Mountains, and crystal clear waters of Lake Superior for miles and miles.

SO much of the UP is just breathtaking but recently, I took a trip to Marquette and we spared no expense when it came to finding the coolest spots for hiking, shopping, eating and even worshipping. I recently purchased a camera and have been loving it, so decided to put together a little look book to help paint a picture of my experiences.

The Delft Bistro

The Delft is an over 100 year old building which was renovated recently and made into a bistro. As you can see from the photo, the cinematic theme is still very present in the newly renovated Delft Bistro where they show popular movies on a projector while selling American food.

St. Peter's Cathedral

St. Peter's Cathedral is a massive roman Catholic church that is just beautiful on the inside and out. So beautiful that there are taurus and a mass offered daily. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012, construction began in 1864 with Venerable Bishop Frederic Baraga laying the cornerstone.


Me enjoying Black Rocks

Amanda Neumann

These photos kind of speak for themselves, but if you saw the Black Rocks in real life, they might take your breath away. When I stepped on the area that is Black Rocks, I felt like I was a kid at a huge playground. A big tradition is to cliff jump off of these rocks, which sadly it was too cold to while I was there, but I would definitely recommend it.

The 906 - Best Meal I Ever Ate?

Google Images

The 906 is this hidden gem on the third floor of a building which overlooks Lake Superior. The staff is so nice and the prices are affordable, but most important, the food is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I got a fish tacos that was AMAZING! They were not even fried and I could taste the fact that they had recently been caught locally. I am going to be honest and saw that it might have been the best meal I've ever had.

The Infamous Sugarloaf Mountain

Views of Sugarloaf

Sugarloaf Mountain is not a pretty easy hike, but when you reach the top it will look as if you climbed an actual mountain. Do NOT forget to bring your camera for this hike, the views will blow you away. This mountain overlooks the entire city of Marquette and puts many things into perspective.

It IS worth the drive boys & girls!!

Overall, EXPLORE MARQUETTE! If you live in Michigan and have not ventured to the infamous "UP North" are you really LIVING here?

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
