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

All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
