11 Things About Having An Athlete Friend As Told By Leslie Knope

College is hard-especially when the Anne Perkins of your life can't be there

11 Things About Having An Athlete Friend As Told By Leslie Knope
Her Campus

We all have that one friend who's been blessed (or so it seems at first) to become a member of a team to represent their school. Initially, we think that this is nothing different than what we were used to in high school, but that is not the case. Little did we know that when our beloved friends decided to sign with their school they were signing away their social life as well. Like having the Ann Perkins of our life move away, here's to all the Leslie Knopes out there that know the familiar feeling of having a once close friend not so close anymore.

1. Accepting the fact that they can't constantly talk to you.

2. In fact, they might not talk to you for days or borderline weeks.

3. When you finally do have time to catch up it's like making up for years worth of lost time.

4. Making plans with them is next to impossible during practice season.

5. Half of the time they're in other states with their team.

6. Even when they're on break they're not "on break".

7. Being able to physically see them is rare.

8. When you do get to see them you spend most of the time vegging out because they're exhausted from practice.

9. Having to say goodbye is more difficult each time.

10. You're never sure when you'll see them next but you'll still have each other's back.

11. Despite how often you both see each other you'll always be there to support them at the end of the day.

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.

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.

So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
