10 Things Every Volleyball Player Can Relate To

1. When you go super hard in warm up to intimidate the opposing team

Let’s be real, if you play competitive volleyball you know how important it is to have an intimidating warm up with solid warm up songs to feed the mood. This isn’t only to put down the opponent, but hype up your game!

2. When stinky knee pads become a normal smell in the locker room

We all know no matter how much spray is in the locker room, there will always be that one teammate that refuses to spray their knee pads or wash them!

3. Getting your own personalized facial

Nothing can tick a volleyball player off more than getting hit in the face with the ball. Not only because it hurts like hell, but because it gives the individual that hit it satisfaction.

4. Having an incredible save, but not getting the point.

Volleyball players are known for epic saves and hits, but when you throw your body across the court and lose a point… Talk about disappointment.

5. Purple hip bruises are a normal part of your complexion.

If you are a defensive specialist you know the struggle with hip bruising is real. The first week is harshly rough, but after that the pain is a regular feeling in your books.

6. When you block a dominate hitter.

All I have to say to this is… NO NO NO NOT TODAY!!!

7. When coach calls off practice for the day

You never thought you would have a free day, but finally the gates of heaven have opened and granted your prayers. You can actually have a social life!

8. When the opposing player lies about a point

The sang “the ball never lies,” is true and the volleyball gods are always watching..

9. Being asked how tall you are

We get it, we are tall. Nothing can annoy a volleyball player more than being asked her height, so just don’t.

10. Playing a home game

The anxiousness, but excitement behind a home game is unreal. The screaming fans, creative posters, amplified moods, and home-court advantage! If you are the home team you are a force to be wreaked with!

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
