I Experienced The Madness


I Experienced The Madness

So, you know how I said in my last article you should go to the games over in Buffalo to experience it, considering how close it is? Well, that is exactly what I did.

One of my best friends, right after my last article was written, texted me asking if I wanted to go with her to the Saturday games hosted in Buffalo, NY. I couldn't of been happier with my decision.

Of course it was an easy yes. It's March Madness, are you kidding me? Of course I'm going.

We got extremely lucky with the games that day. The first game, tip off at 12:10pm, was Notre Dame vs. West Virginia. Fighting Irish all the way (I also picked them in my bracket, so they had to win). The guy sitting next to me even started chanting, Ru-dy....Ru-dy.....Ru-dy...Ru-dy Ru-dy Ru-dy. Yep, it took everything in me not to start chanting with him. Easily one of my favorite movies.

I show up in my (Lauren's) ND shirt, rooting away, and.... they lose. But, don't worry, Lauren had her Villanova shirt on, and that was a sure win, right?


For those who do not know, or did not watch, Villanova (the #1 seed in the country) played Wisconsin (an 8 seed) and Wisconsin completely pulled off one of the greatest upsets in March Madness history. Villanova not only won last year's tournament, but were the second most picked team in the country to do it all again.

By far one of the greatest experiences of my life. As a major sports fan, seeing an upset like this was beyond exciting.

Will I be doing this again? You best believe I will.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
