11 Things Student Athletes Say All The Time

9. I'm never sore.

11 Things Student Athletes Say All The Time
Troy Athletics

As a student athlete at Troy University myself, I've become accustomed to what comes out of most athletes mouths. However, I'm also aware of what never comes out of an athletes mouth. Guess for yourself how honest these 11 phrases are...

1. I'm going to graduate with a 4.0 GPA.

Ha. This is pretty much close to impossible as a Division I athlete. The goal for most athletes is a 3.0 or higher.

2. I got all 8 hours of sleep!

I can't remember the last time I consistently got 8 or more hours of sleep.

3. I have so much free time.

What. What's free time?

4. I dress up and look good (and smell good) to class every day.

If dress up consists of a non-smelly/sweaty t-shirt and hair thrown up into a bun, then sure, I guess I 'dress up'.

5. I get to sleep in all the time.

Sleep in???? I won't be able to sleep in until Christmas break.

6. I love working out for fun.

For fun? Running 10 300's for fun? Nope.

7. I always get my homework done on time.

Okay, I'm not a lazy careless student, BUT to say I get my homework done on time every single day would be a lie. It's hard to get it all done unless you stay up till 1 AM and lose an extra two hours of sleep.

8. I don't like naps, I'd rather socialize.

Are you kidding?? I spend my day planning out when I can take the next nap.

9. I'm never sore.

* I'm always sore.

10. I get to go visit my family all the time.

You mean like over Christmas break right?

11. I love going out with my friends every weekend.

*going to a different state every weekend for a game right?

Our lifestyle is unlike any average college student. Not saying it's better or worse, however, because of the differences, the things we say are also often times very different as well. Yet even with a lack of sleep, over tired and sore muscles, and deprivation of social time...we wouldn't change it for the world.

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.
