Experience Nashville on a Budget

     Nashville, Tennessee. Music City, USA.  And as of 8 months ago, my new home.  In the past couple years Nashville has become one of the new "it" cities in the U.S. and that is not without reason! Nashville is a city that's constantly overflowing with activity and bursting with creative minds. There is something to do in this city literally every single night of the week.  One of the great things about that, is that a lot of it is completely free or fairly cheap.  While there are the many tourist traps, like any other big city, there are a lot of ways to experience Nashville on a budget.

Battling Bewilderment

     Do you ever have those moments where you are overcome with panic, maybe not panic, but an uneasiness that you're not doing the right thing with your life? That is me like 75% of the time.  I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING!  I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one either, at least I hope I'm not! I was doing a little brainstorming for this post and my mind went to the word bewilderment.  I looked up the exact meaning of it and it pretty spectacularly describes my state at the moment.  The dictionary definition of bewilderment is the feeling of being perplexed and confused. Perplexed. And. Confused.  That is me.

Rock Island State Park

     This weekend I took a much needed drive out of town with a friend to Rock Island State Park in Tennessee.  For myself, and many other friends I have talked to, this past week was just one of those weeks. Not real great emotionally, circumstantially, or physically.  Those weeks are typically few and far between for me, but when they do hit me I like to give in to a bit of escapism.  As much as I enjoy the city I really needed to get away for a little bit.  This weekend was the perfect weekend to do it too! The weather here in Nashville has been so up and down and while the beginning of the week was cool and rainy, this weekend has been sunny with temps close to 80.
