  • Despite the fact that engineering is an exciting and challenging major, the school does not really give us a big picture of the field itself. A complaint I have about college education, especially in STEM fields, is that they take a bottom-up approach.

  • Ugly Mug Cafe originated in 1995 in the University District. In the midst of the college scene, Ugly Mug takes on the lively essence of U-District’s inhabitants, while still aiming to provide a refuge of coziness and warmth. The current owners of the cafe and roastery began as mere baristas at Ugly Mug. However, with a yearning to improve and elevate the cafe, Ugly Mug was eventually passed into their hands.

  • While numerous farmers markets are bound to reopen next month, year-round markets––such as the Ballard and University Farmers Markets––are maintaining the front. However, for the sake of a fresh landscape, my ventures led me to Fishermen’s Terminal for a look into Seattle’s local fish selection. Although seasonal produce cannot be found lining the docks of the pier, sustainable and wild-caught fish make a great addition to other farmers market finds.

The ocean is the mirror of the Earth: Legacy of a Seattle fisherman

Some may argue that fishing as an industry is dying, but not on the shores of Knutson. “When I started fishing in 1972, I've heard that my whole life. People told me ‘hey that’s a dying industry', and I usually respond with ‘if you think that the fishing [industry] is dying, then I guess you’re saying that the planet is dying.’”
