6 Things Xavier Students Are Tired Of Hearing
Xavier University

Everyone has things that if they never heard again for the rest of their lives, they would be very happy. Often times those things apply to groups of people. Tall people are sick of being asked if they play basketball (especially when they do not), redheads get tired of the "gingers don't have souls!" quips, and anyone with a remotely inappropriate first or last name is especially tired of people exercising their freedom of speech. For students at Xavier University, the list gets kind of long.

6. So did you hear about that pizza atm?

Yes, I did. Thank you for thinking of me, but I knew it was coming long before you saw it on the Today Show. And if I hadn't, the 13 other people who tagged me in the exact same Facebook video beat you to it.

5. How's your football team this year?

This one always comes with a smug grin or forced laughter. That's a good one. Definitely the first time I've heard it. Undefeated since 1973. Moving on.

4. That's an expensive school; you must be rich!

Some of us are, some of us aren't. There's a lot of scholarship money floating around, and a lot of crippling debt. A lot. You can't choose who, or where, you love right?

3. Have you tried the pizza from the ATM yet?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F26%2F636078432417228333-372663613_giphy%2520%2823%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=155&h=7be148ae6f54298f7d3948693f9c32df79ac72dd453815ee01313f1cf4bfb7ba&size=980x&c=517645373 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F26%252F636078432417228333-372663613_giphy%252520%252823%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D155%26h%3D7be148ae6f54298f7d3948693f9c32df79ac72dd453815ee01313f1cf4bfb7ba%26size%3D980x%26c%3D517645373%22%7D" expand=1]

I know all of my friends and family are anxiously awaiting for me to take on my role as quality control, but as of now, I have not. It's the same pizza I can walk inside the caf and get for free* (*already paid for) so I haven't brought myself to pay $9 for it yet. Sorry for being a disappointment, but when I try it, you'll be the first to know.

2. You're pretty good at basketball, right?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F26%2F636078436050109824-44401104_giphy%2520%2824%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=130&h=4e08bf22fa425b8a682ef3dd3c826fadbbb4a5209441c8276daafe5044fec41e&size=980x&c=2423504061 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F26%252F636078436050109824-44401104_giphy%252520%252824%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D130%26h%3D4e08bf22fa425b8a682ef3dd3c826fadbbb4a5209441c8276daafe5044fec41e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2423504061%22%7D" expand=1]

Personally, no. But if you mean me as in my school, then yeah, you could say that. I mean we did happen to beat the current national champs, but no big deal. Honestly, this one doesn't get old because, let's face it, who doesn't want to talk about how awesome their school is.

1. "Eggs-zavier"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F26%2F6360784437359262511314373070_giphy%2520%2825%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=327&h=56911c0041112f08668347f6ba2dda57ada161839e784bc955c44690ed79eb3d&size=980x&c=3412659563 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F26%252F6360784437359262511314373070_giphy%252520%252825%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D327%26h%3D56911c0041112f08668347f6ba2dda57ada161839e784bc955c44690ed79eb3d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3412659563%22%7D" expand=1]

It happens everywhere: on tv, at family functions, if you wear a Xavier shirt to the mall. I understand, the first time, if you think to pronounce the "X" like it belongs in front of the word husband, I do. But if I say Xavier to you and then you say back Ex-xavier to me, I'm going to think you're correcting me. And that just makes no sense seeing as one of actually goes there. Oh well.

But there's one sound we'll never tire of...

and that's the announcer at the basketball games with the always enthused "forrrrrrrr Xavierrrrrr!" and a good ol' Let's Go X chant.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
