We may be crazy, but we are the best kind of crazy.

5 Reasons You Wish You Were A Philly Sports Fan

In the city of Brotherly Love, we share an entirely new level of passion for our teams, and there's nothing else quite like it.

We root for them whether they are having the absolute worst season ever, or killing it and slaying every other team in the league. We may be crazy, but we are the best kind of crazy.

It is truly something special to see an entire city coming together all because of one team. Here are 5 reasons why you wish you were a Philly fan!

1. We're CHAMPS, baby!!!

Our athletes have an unbelievable amount of heart and drive to want to succeed and win. This year we were able to bring home the SuperBowl and be on top!

Win or lose, Philly is ALWAYS number one in our hearts, and this year we're lucky enough to be able to show the rest of the world just how strong our pride is and just how strong-willed our athletes are.

2. Our celebrations are bigger than any party you will ever go to.

When we win a big game, we go wild. Wild, like we make the front page of the newspaper and the six o'clock news for DAYS, wild.

Millions of people flooding the streets, climbing light posts, setting off fireworks, and riding on the tops of police cars. Experiencing a win in Philadelphia is something unlike anything else you will ever encounter.

3. We thrive on being the "underdog".

Say what you want and put us down, but we will keep our heads high and prove you wrong.

Forever being known as the team who "probably won't win" only drives us more to want it. We love the competition and we never back down from a challenge.

4. We have the most passionate fan base.

We travel in packs; wherever our team goes, we go with them. They are never left high and dry.

We are always giving them that sense of home when they look up into the stands and see the endless sea of green, orange, or red, depending on the sport. We want to be there every step of the way cheering on our team and supporting them, no matter if the game is home or away.

5. We are loyal.

When Philly is having a tough season or a rough few years, we never drop them or pick a new team. We. Are. Loyal.

We believe in them and ONLY in them. This is something so unique, and it is the reason why the fans are the way we are. We win together, we lose together, and we single-handedly know how to unite an entire city.

Regardless of where you live, each and every person has their team and who they grew up rooting for. But, if you're lucky enough, you'll be raised to embrace that brotherly love and have the great opportunity of being a Philly fan (a.k.a. the best type of fan there is!)

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.
