As I drove up to Mi Rancho Meat Market for the first time in the early summer of 2023, I saw countless posters and signs, advertising tacos for $1. My initial thought was, how can these tacos be good if they're so cheap?
I was probably 10 years old. I zigzagged through the metal poles and balconies of a play structure, evading my dad in a game of tag. Jimmy Cliff’s sweet, melodic voice pumped in my ears through an iPod.
I have been painting and drawing since I could hold a crayon. Art was an important part of my life growing up, and is still at 21. When I create things now, I mostly do it for an outcome, a finished piece. I sometimes forget that the artistic process can be so much more than just the satisfaction of a final painting.
One of my favorite things about Washington, and Bellingham in particular, is that you need not go far to find yourself deep in the woods.
Many of us attend the weekly Bellingham Farmers Market held each Saturday in downtown’s Depot Market Square. Offering food, art and clothing, it’s long been one of my favorite weekend outings in my 17 years living in Bellingham.

When I became the opinions editor for The Front this quarter, I was lucky enough to have a good idea of what I hoped to write about. My idea isn’t exactly “original,” per se, but thankfully, I learned from the best.
The term “Hot Girl Summer” was popularized in 2019 by the release of Megan Thee Stallion’s song by the same name. Across social media platforms, there doesn’t appear to be one clear-cut definition of what a hot girl summer is or who can even partake to begin with – and despite what the name might suggest, it’s not limited by gender.
We’ve all been there – a date riddled with awkward silences, repeatedly looking at the time wondering how much longer till it’s over or trying to find a plausible excuse to abruptly, yet politely, end the date.
