10 Things Georgia Bulldog Fans Identify With

ATTENTION: This Saturday marks the beginning of a season far better than Fall, Spring, Summer, Winter, turkey or even deer hunting season. IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON, Y’ALL! The long- awaited stadium (or arena) lights and nights that seem to last forever have finally returned to us, and for us Georgia fans, this means more than just celebrating a new pack of pups playing for our favorite team. Our loyalty to the Dawg Nation is heavily expressed through our clothing, our businesses, our social media profiles, and even most of our high school mascots. (Go Dawgs!)

So, for all of my football- loving peach-state friends that have been eager for September’s arrival since last December came around, this article is for you. (Sorry other teams, I can only speak for what I know.) Time to break out your game-day finger foods and get excited because I know you will enjoy this list of 10 things Georgia Bulldog fans identify with.

1. There are Georgia decals everywhere.

One for your car, your laptop, boat, grill cover, and Christmas Tree.

2. You knew (or know) more than 1 person who plays football.

In fact, there’s probably a father somewhere among you praying that his son picks up the sport.

3. If you’re not between the hedges for a game, you’re at a get-together with 50 other people.

Pass the dip.

4. You have considered purchasing (or rescuing) a bulldog puppy before.

Support the team in every possible way.

5. You may have misspelled the word “dog” before without second thought.

Wait, it’s NOT always spelled d-a-w-g?

6. You can never find the right color of red to wear.

Can’t be seen sporting Carolina colors, can we?

7. Even if you’re a guy, you’ve fangirled upon meeting (or seeing) your favorite player.

Let’s not talk about those who have an actual picture.

8. You may feel the sudden urge to bark when cheering for good plays.


9. You’re not actually related to anyone who goes to UGA.

Probably just caught the Bulldog Pride from a passerby.

10. You have learned what it feels like to be a part of something greater than yourself.

Football can finally be deemed educational.

From learning good sportsmanship to owning tons of red and black, these are just a few of my favorite things about being devoted to my favorite team. What are yours, Georgia fans?

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
