Sure, everyone’s got their own unique personality, but when you share a state you also share some common influences that shape who you turn out to be. These are huge generalizations not meant to be taken too seriously. Having said that, we’re pretty sure you’ll recognize every one of these Nebraska personalities.
The Sweet Grandparents
They aren't necessarily your own grandparents. They're just awesome older people who always have a smile and a good story (and maybe some fresh cookies) for you.
The quintessential Nebraskan! You may or may not choose to recognize "hobby farmers" in this category, but there sure are a lot of people here who are skilled in growing stuff.
Besides the amount of land they own and the type of things they grow, the main difference between the farmer and the rancher is the type of hat they wear.
There are those who live in the city, those who work in the city and commute back to a comfortable small town every night, and those who work in the small towns to keep everything running smoothly.
It's almost a guarantee that you have at least one hunter in your life if you live in Nebraska. That goes for anglers, too. And if you're lucky, this person will keep you supplied with fresh meat and fish year-round.
The Soccer Mom
She's always ready to go to a game, performance, PTA meeting, or whatever her kids are doing that day. And most Nebraska moms do all of that on top of working at paying jobs, too.
The Hard-Working Dad
Wherever you find a soccer mom, you're likely to find a hard-working dad. It's often hard to make ends meet and coordinate schedules, but these couples make it look easy.
The Avid Huskers Fan
You know that guy or girl who once quit a job because they couldn't get Saturdays off to watch Huskers games?
With their head in the clouds, this painter/sculptor/dancer/actor/writer/musician is always looking forward to the next creative project.
This is the type of person who usually works a regular job all week, but the second the workweek is over they race out of the door. They're on their way to hike, bike, camp, canoe, explore, and visit every cool place in Nebraska. They're living the good life with gusto!
