My second (and last) day in Seattle began with a morning spent in the Pioneer Square/International District area and followed by an afternoon at the Seattle Center.

The Seattle Center is seventy-four acres and was originally built for the 1962 World Fair. It currently is comprised of the Museum of Pop Culture, the Memorial Stadium, Chihuly Glass and Gardens, the Space Needle, and the Key Arena. I spent the majority of my time at the Museum of Pop Culture to check out the Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and Star Trek exhibits (amongst many others) and then made my way over to the Space Needle as the sun was setting.

To anyone who is visiting Seattle in the near future, I highly recommend that you check out this area as there is honestly just so much to do.

Smells Like Teen Spirit

In honor of this being the last week of my current term and also of this school year– I give you “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. I remember the first time I heard this song, it was while my dad was driving me home from Catholic school way back when. Thus began my love for Nirvana.¬†However, it wasn’t until junior high school that I fully began to appreciate not only Nirvana’s sound but also their angsty lyrics. I’ll always appreciate their music and how it touched me . Through Nirvana I learned the power of music and how it is one of the cheapest forms of therapy.

I hope y’all really do have a great day.
