If you have ever been to Springfield, Missouri you know that it is a lot bigger than people let on. It's big and yet everything is still very close. So many fun things to do within this city that has recently been voted as the best college city in Missouri! (Reviews.org)

I have asked my social media followers again to let me know what their favorite thing to do Springy is. Again with the help that I have received I have came up with another fun list for you all. A top 5 for Springfield activities. Do ya'll agree?

5. Game Day

So many schools and their sports teams are here in Springfield, Missouri. One top favorite that happens not be a college team are the Springfield Cardinals. This minor leagues team is a perfect place to take the family and friends. Another place would be the MSU boys basketball games. Plus so many more to choose from.

4. JQH Events

Living right next to the MSU campus I can certainly believe that this one is in the top 5. How can you not with all of the traffic rushing in to see their favorite artist, rodeo shows, car shows, and more!

Everyone always seems so happy when they walk out with those big smiles. They know they had a memorable night with the family or friends. No doubt the JQH arena can serve up some fun events.

3. Mudhouse

An amazing little place lots of students and others love to go to get some work done is Mudhouse. Choose your drink and have a coffee house feel like none other. Relax and stay focused all at the same time. Study date? Haven't seen your friends in a while, a Saturday business day; then go to Mudhouse.

2. Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium

Although I have not been here myself, I have heard amazing things. One of my friends got the opportunity to work the opening night. Ever since with more and more people who go, I hear nothing but greatness.

Babysitters are taking the children here to learn and see something new. The beauty and aww this place gives to the Springfield community is amazing. Great addition I know so many of us can appreciate.

1. Clubbing

Downtown Springfield clubs/bars, along with the others across town, are popping every weekend. So many to choose from like Social, PBar, Trops, Boogie, Zan, Friends, Club Rodeo, and more.

A night out with friends is always more fun when you get to do some karaoke, dancing, and staying up past your normal bedtime. People even bring their wedding parties, have their formals, and alumni events at some of these locations. Entertainment will always be something we look for, and these places never disappoint.


If you're bored of the same old things you do every weekend, then try spicing some things up with this list of activities. You never know which one might just become your favorite. Find a whole in the wall we should all know about? Don't be afraid to share with your friends and family. Who knows, it could become the next best thing Springy has to offer.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
