5 Things Girls That Love Football Hate Hearing

Football season is well upon us and that means most days and nights are consumed by watching your favorite team, screaming at them to get their heads out of you know where and celebrating or mourning until the next game is played. All in all, it makes September through February the best time of the year. However, being a girl that likes football can be a little bit more tough. Boys think you don't know what you're talking about and think that you only like a certain QB because he's hot (sometimes that helps your love along, but they've gotta be able to make passes too). Your non-football loving friends don't understand your infatuation, and don't understand how you can sit in front of the TV for hours on end watching a ball get thrown. It makes for an aggravating season, and no matter how hard you try, there are always specific things that annoy you more than any other. Here's 5 things girls that love football hate hearing.

1. "I bet you can't even name a player on this team."

Ha, yeah right. Offensive, defensive, or special teams? Yeah, that's right, I know what special teams are, too. And no, I won't be naming only the quarterback either so don't even go there.

2. "You only like (insert any QB here) because you think he's hot."

Or, ya know, I like him because he's good at what he does. Just because I'm a female doesn't mean I can't recognize talent before looks. Show me a man wearing my teams colors that just threw a pass deep for a touchdown while under pressure, and I'm going to be celebrating his arm. Not his looks.

3. "Do you even know why that penalty was just called? I bet you're just following everyone else."

Actually, I saw the penalty before the ref even threw the flag and I called what it was going to be for. So you can just shut up now and let me continue screaming at the TV.

4. "You're such a bandwagon fan."

This is especially true for me, having grown up a die-hard Alabama fan. But every girl that is the fan of a team that's having a good season seems to get this remark, and Mindy is exactly right: how dare you? Yeah, right now I may be the fan of a good team. However, I was still a fan whenever we were in our rebuilding (a.k.a. we forgot how to play football) year.

5. "Oh, well I guess you do actually know football."

The worst comment of all. Oh, thanks for letting me know that I do in fact know what I'm talking about. I was so concerned that I didn't. This one usually comes after I beat a guy's fantasy team, or I win the "which way is this penalty going to go" argument. It's definitely the worst out of all of them, but at least it's usually the last comment you get.

Girls that love football have it hard. We have to defend not only our teams, but also ourselves, all season long. But it's so worth it when you manage to wipe a smug look off of some jerk's face that was questioning you, so just hold on and keep doing what you do best: cheering on your boys and proving everyone in your vicinity wrong.

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.
