So I don’t know how many of you reside in the state I call home or hae even been here, but I think it is time I talked about home. I realize that I have spent the better part of my 18 years hating it because of our crappy winters, and only as I moved away from home did I learn to (sort of) appreciate it. So here are the top ten reasons why I like minnesota.
1) My family is here. As I moved away from home I realized how much I love my family and I understood why my parents put up with shoveling, snow tires and crappy roads for nine months out of the year. Because they are surrounded with the people they love. That sure makes leaving hard.
2) Cabins! I happen to have the BEST cabin in all of Minnesota (even though it is actually in WI- but my family has the best cabin out of all minnesotan’s cabins) It is past this small town called Cushing, WI and some of my most fond memories are at the cabin. It is one of my favorite places in the world.
3) Minnesota Nice. It probably sounds cliche but people are actually pretty nice up here. Sometime people from other places just blow me away with their rude-ness.
4) The warm summers. Even though the winters are crappy, summers are generally great!
5) THE GOPHERS! The best college sports teams EVER!
6) The Twins! They aren’t the best this year, but they have a few world series’ under their belts, so don’t count them out!
7) It’s PRETTY!! Especially Duluth!
8)Downtown Minneapolis!! It’s FUN and there’s tons of stuff to do!
9) You can chop down your own christmas tree! not that I have ever done this, but my friends who live in the boondocks all have!
10) It’s Minnesota. Need I say more??
