All The Things You Have To Do When You Visit Nashville, TN

September 17, 2018, is officially International Country Music Day and there is no better way to celebrate than going to Nashville, Tennessee which is considered the home of country music. If you love this genre, this is a must-see place for you to go.

Here is a list of some of the things you should do to get the most out of your trip to Nashville.

1. Walk through the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

The museum shows various artifacts and history starting from country music's beginnings all the way to now. Learning more about the roots of country music was really neat. My favorite part was looking at various clothing items from stars such as Dolly Parton and the original scraps of paper where Alan Jackson created one of his most famous songs.

2. Take a tour through the Grand Ole Opry

There is a video at the beginning of the tour that explains how the Grand Ole Opry got started and about the process of reconstructing the new building. While in town, you can look to see if there are any artists that will be playing there during your stay. If there are, you can buy tickets to see the show which is an amazing experience. It is an honor for artists to be invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and is an accomplishment many aspiring musicians dream of.

Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, and Luke Combs are just a few of many that have had the opportunity to perform there.

3. Go downtown to listen to live music and enjoy food or drinks at the world famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge.

This is the only building painted purple on what is referred to as Broadway. There are also a variety of other bars and honky-tonks located downtown where you can enjoy upcoming artists and have a great time.

4. Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is a very well-known restaurant to both the locals and people visiting.

The only thing to keep in mind is that there can sometimes be a very long wait to eat. This restaurant focuses on making chicken and is famous for the extremely hot chicken that they serve. Try it if you dare!

5. Walk to the Gulch which is right outside of Downtown.

This neighborhood area is considered to be very trendy with a variety of shopping options, cafes, and food choice within walking distance of each other. When at the Gulch, make sure to stop by and eat at Biscuit Love. This is a wonderful restaurant that serves a variety of brunch foods. My brother ordered chicken and waffles that was amazing and a great portion. It was the best breakfast I ever had and was definitely worth the wait in line!

We went during December right before Christmas and an employee at Biscuit Love offered everyone free coffee so we could keep warm while waiting outside.

If you want to experience what it's like to be in a country music town, then this is the place to visit when you get a chance. Go ahead and visit Nashville to see all that this town has to offer!

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.
