7 Stages Of Game Day In Columbus For Ohio State Girls

From someone who has experienced their fair share of football in The Shoe, I think I am pretty well versed in the phases that every girl goes through on game day.

1. Waking Up

Chances are you might have gone out the night before and while closing down Bulls seemed like a great idea at the time, but you are surely feeling it when you have to get up for that noon kick-off. This is probably the hardest, yet most important step of the day.

2. Getting Ready

Picking your outfit can be very tricky depending on the weather (Trust me, you do not want to be wearing a handkerchief top in temperatures less than 60 degrees). Getting your gameday wardrobe together for all seasons is a must for any female OSU fan.

3. Block

Probably the highlight of game-day and some even consider it the main event. Just go easy on that four loko and natty because you do still have a full day ahead of you.

4. Getting to the game

Chances are you did not make it to the game for kick-off, but it doesn't matter because you are here now right? Get rowdy and enjoy seeing the bucks win! Hope you can make it to the end of the game for the singing of our Alma Mater "Carmen Ohio."

5. Post-game nap

The long day has finally caught up to you and all you can think about is taking your converse off that are probably rubbing blisters everywhere. Everyone could use an hour or two to recharge because the night is probably not over yet.

6. Getting Ready Part 2

Now that you've woken up from your much-needed nap, retrieved some water and some food, you are ready to rally to go out and (hopefully) celebrate the Buckeyes' win. Shower, touch up that hair and makeup and you are ready to go out again.

7. The Recovery

This is technically not game-day, but if you think you are going to get anything done before 2 PM on Sunday you are sadly mistaken. Sunday is the day for recovery for the events of the entire weekend.

Gamedays are truly a right of passage for all OSU students and I hope that everyone gets to experience it. It truly is an experience like no other.

"New Girl" is one of the best sitcoms of all time. Honestly, it is so much fun to watch, so much fun to relate to, just all around a great show.

Not only is a great show, it has so many different great settings, obviously including the loft. If you live by Nick Miller quotes and desperately tried to learn how to play "True American," you need to buy these things because you are a true "New Girl" fan.

Whether you're in a Zoom session or live-chatting, make sure your home therapy space is good to go.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire.
