Things You Know To Be True If You Are From Upstate NY
Natalie Braman

I love calling Upstate home! It has shaped me in so many ways! But it is funny to joke about it... here's how

First of all, you know this map is inaccurate

The yellow is supposed to represent "Upstate" ... but let's be real, Upstate starts much further UP the state than shown here

Chances are you have driven in conditions like this maybe once ... or a million times in your life

Here's to always keeping a snow brush in your car

You or someone you know definitely went to a SUNY

Let's be real ... they are the best state schools in the country

This is your idea of an amusement park

But you're also aware that the Rochester one is the superior one

You bleed Orange

(disregard the Go Heels ... my dad's a UNC fan)

You've been to one of the Finger Lakes at least once in your life

You know that not everywhere Upstate actually looks like this stock photo of some farm

Despite what those city folk like to say

You probably consider driving around the back roads fun

TBH nothing else to really do up here

You pronounce "creek" like "crik" ...

and "aunt" like "ant" and "roof" like "ruff"

You go crazy for St. Patrick's Day Parades

A good friend of mine, John, enjoying Binghamton's 2019 Parade Day!

You have visited the Adirondacks and love going there

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
