10 Signs Auburn Football Is A Week Away

Life in a college town is far from ordinary, but when that college town hosts one of the most tradition-filled and high spirited SEC schools in the nation, extraordinary still cannot be used to define its greatness. In just six short days, the Auburn family’s favorite season will be in full swing with its opening game against Clemson taking place right here in the heart of our city- Jordan Hare. While we all have the date marked on our calendar and countdown clocks on our phones to remind us of just how much longer we have to wait for that eagle to fly and for our battle cry to be heard, here are a few other signs that can be seen among the community that let us know that The Tigers are taking the field this weekend.

1. Jersey sales spike.

2. Chatter about starting line-up strategies and players' stats can be overheard from any lunch table.

3. The colors orange and blue are more prominent than ever.

4. Tailgating tents start going up on the green space.

5. Aubie's presence on campus becomes more frequent and noticed.

6. The downtown shops stock up on football related gear.

7. Guys start asking girls to be their game day dates.

8. Your Facebook feed is flooded with the newest hype videos and highlight films.

9. The RVs start rolling in.

10. Every business finds somewhere to plaster the words "War Eagle" or other Auburn football related phrases.

This already lively campus truly has a change in atmosphere this time of year and we couldn’t be more excited to spend another season cheering on this team we love. While we haven’t had a season go as smoothly as we would’ve liked in a while, we are ever hopeful and always faithful that our Auburn Tigers won’t disappoint. War Eagle!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
