Perks Of Being A College Athlete

Once you go away to college, your new life will start. You leave your home, may move to a new city that you don´t know without your beloved family and friends. While playing a sport isn´t for everybody, being a part of a team or a group of people you socialize with should be. Before going to college, some people debate whether or not they should be playing a sport. They might ask themselves: can I manage school and sport? How will I get all my school work done? Will I still have time to go out?

Let me tell you: playing a sport in college is the best thing you can do for several reasons.

1. You will automatically have at least 10 new friends that have your back.

2. During season, calories don't count.

3. Saturday night out is much more fun after a big win.

4. Playing your rival is the best – beating them is even better.

5. You become pretty good at time management.

6. Playing a sport keeps you grounded and your priorities straight.

7. Playing the sport you love is a great stress reliever.

8. Workouts and practices may be hard, but they definitely pay off.

9. You don't have to set aside time to force yourself to go to the gym, you have practice and games instead - which is actually enjoyable.

10. You always have someone to hang out with and most importantly to get food with.

11. Your teammates will become some of your best friends, who will always tell you the truth.

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
