"Wait, is frisbee even a real sport?!?"

We've all heard the question time and time again. The answer is yes - heck yes. Frisbee is one of the best club sports to ever exist. It doesn't get much better than throwing a plastic disc at some of your best pals. Here are just a few highs and lows we all know to be true about playing ultimate frisbee.

1. When it's tournament weekend and you can't help but dance.

The hype leading up to the tournament can be too much to bear sometimes. When you finally get out of that last Friday class and pile into the cars to head out, some serious jamming is bound to happen.

2. When your team is down by a few too many points at the half...

Entering halftime losing by a few points changes the morale of the whole team. Knowing that the rest of the game will be even harder means it's time to step it up!

3....but starts off the second half with a score on a beautiful downwind huck.

Commence celebration. We have been redeemed.

4. Getting injured.

No words needed. When you're injured all you can do is watch and wish you were on the field, you eat a lot of cheese balls and get really, really good at throwing the disc to yourself.

5. Throwing the perfect zone.

Got 'em. When your team works together too well and shuts the opponents down, you feel like you can do anything. The cup can't be beat.

6. When you get your victory dance down.

Having a sweet victory dance is the icing on the cake of a perfect catch. Sticky hands, super cool moves.

7. Dropping the perfect throw.

When you know you coulda had it but you just can't get there fast enough. Sorry, coach youtube.

8. Lining up for the pull and feelin' fierce.

The squad's all here, and they are lookin' good. This starting line is unstoppable, basically.

9. Trying to tell your teammates to cut deep.

"Cut left, front, right, then turn the page and sprint deep and I'll hit you with an IO flick on the front corner of the endzone!" Yeah, you probably didn't understand exactly what you were saying, either.

10. Tournament snacks.

All of the bagels, all of the peanut butter, and all of the warm gatorade. We all have a love-hate relationship with those snack tables in the sun.

11. When the teams huddle and intermingle to pray it out.

At the end of the game, we're all here to have fun and to play frisbee. Huddling with the other team is a vivid reminder of the Spirit of the Game.

12. Conditioning, conditioning, conditioning.

We all know the feeling at the end of practice. You're just about ready to fall over and sleep, but now is the time to sprint. This really is good for you, we promise.

13. Knowing there is no one else you'd rather play with.

Thanks for the fun times, team. You make college sports so rad, and I can't think of anyone else I would rather throw frisbees around with. Here's to many, many more tournaments and very little sleep with y'all by my side.

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.
