40 Thoughts You've Definitely Had At A University Of Arizona Football Game

It is hard to believe that it is already almost November and our Wildcat football season is almost over. As a senior I have gone to my share of football games, through attempting to stay longer than the 1st quarter, tailgating a little too hard, singing "Bear Down" more time than I can count, and sweating off all my face tattoos within 10 minutes — it is these experiences that are the ones I will never forget. There are few things that are better than seeing everyone come together showing their pride for our amazing school and our football team.

Although every Saturday tailgate and football game is different each time, there are certain phrases that are guaranteed to be stated at every game that I have said or heard through out my 4 years here.

Phrases of Every Football Game:

1. "It's so hot."

2. "I wish I wore a hat."

3. "I should have drank more."

4. "Why do we have to stand the entire time?"

5. "Am I getting sun burnt?"

6. "I will never understand why we have day games, we live in a desert!"

7. "I want to get on the Big Screen!"

8. "They keep showing the same people! We should've painted our faces like them!"

9. "One of these days I will win the Wells Fargo Challenge." (Doubtful.)

10. "Is it still only the 1st quarter?"

11. "It is so cool when the band makes the United States outline."

12. "Hurry, I need to get the fireworks in my snap story!"

13. ...When the snap doesn't post..."I don't even have service!"

14. "How do the cheerleaders stay so skinny?"

15. "I feel bad for the band! They have to wear those feather hats and a suit!"

16. *Trying to chase Wilbur to take a pic, but failing every time to get his attention.*

17. "I wonder who Wilbur actually is."

18. "It is so hot OMG."

19. "Did we just score?"

20. "Let's leave after the 1st quarter."

21. "Zona Zoo doesn't stay the whole game."

22. "Why is water $3?"

23. "Should I get a hot dog?"

24. "Wait no Dippin Dots?"

25. ...asking the stranger behind you take a pic of your group with the field in the background...

26."It is soo stinkin' hot."

27. "What! How is there a flag?"

28. "I wonder how heavy those flags are that the cheerleaders run with."

29. "I have a class with #75 on the team." (Yeah, because I guess that makes everyone cooler?)

30. "What is this new sway thing?"

31. *Trying to find keys in time for the kickoff...but you never get them out in time...*

32. *Putting your hands in the "X" for the "Hit Squad" cheer* (but you never fully understand what it means).

33. ..That's good for an "Arizona first down" (with the hand motions of course).

34. "I am literally sweating off everything."

35. "How good does Chipotle sound?"

36. "Uuuuu....Offff......Aaaaaaa" cheer.

37. "What's a good picture I should Instagram tonight?"

38. "Let's go out tonight, we need to rally!"

39. "I am so hot."

40. "Bear Down Arizona, Bear Down Red and Blue, Go, Go, Wildcats Go, Arizona Bear Down!"

Happy Football Season Wildcats! Remember to Bear Down every game day!

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
