There’s this great hidden place in Lincoln that I was shown during my senior year of high school. Upon my arrival to Lincoln late last year, I knew I had to find it again, so with my best friend Khalie and my boyfriend Eddie in tow, I set off to find it by memory. It was a success, so here are some photos.
Looking at these pictures now that I’ve settled into Lincoln reminds me that there’s new and beautiful things to see everywhere even if you can afford to travel far or to expensive places. Appreciate the little things around you, for every thing they’re worth, as fully, deeply, and passionately as possible. Life will be better, I promise.
I like making lists, and I would like to do the following things;
-visit Thailand and see the elephant sanctuaries
-go snorkeling in Australia
-go zip-lining and surfing in Hawaii (again)
-get drunk in Ireland
-sit on the bench where Augustus and Hazel did in Amsterdam
-stay in the underwater hotel in Dubai
-save an elephants life in Africa
-visit ancient ruins in South America
-put a lock on that bridge in France
-visit family in Denmark
-make a friend in Canada
-ride a donkey in Greece
-go on a cruise anywhere
-stay at an all inclusive resort in the Caribbean
-visit all the national parks
-see castles in Scotland
-visit Sea Monster museum in Iceland
Pink and grey vans have taken me many places, mainly high school and college. I included them because SCHOOL IS SO IMPORTANT.
My white converse. Oh my, oh my. I bought these during my first year of college, and that year was crazy. We’ll leave that there, but rather focus on my two favorite memories during which I was wearing these shoes. For starters, they were my go-to while I was in Chicago, visiting the river front, walking to the Sears tower or whatever it’s called now, shopping at the mall, laughing at my aunt while she played Pokemon Go. It was the best family road trip of my life, and these shoes definitely played their part. Shoutout to the weave I found while wandering in these shoes.
The other fond memory I have of these shoes was Halloweekend 2k16 in Lincoln, NE and Ithaca, NE. I won’t go into detail, but that’s why the shoes are so dirty and my possibly have a small blood stain.
On to my latest infatuation: my rose gold Nikes. Already they’ve taken me so many new, interesting places. My wonderful boyfriend, Eddie, took me wandering down town Omaha in the Old Market in these shoes, they took me into Eddie’s church, a beautiful catholic church. They’re a recent purchase, so they haven’t taken me very far yet, but I can’t wait for all the new places I’ll go with these on my feet.
