9 Reasons You Should Join Your College's Ultimate Frisbee Team
Leah Bisson

It doesn't matter if you are headed into your (super) senior year or are just entering college as a freshman. There is never a bad time to join your college's Ultimate Frisbee team. Here is why I think it will be the best choice you will ever make in your college career.

1. You get to travel for tournaments.

Tournament weekends are some of my favorite memories from college. You get to travel to different campuses with some of your very best friends. What can be better than that?

2. It is a fun way to stay active.

Sometimes it can be a struggle to drag yourself to the gym after a long day of classes. When you have practice four days a week you can look forward to your exercise instead of dreading it.

3. You are part of a rapidly growing sport.

Ultimate is a pretty new sport and is growing so quickly. In 30 years you can look back on your college days and say that you were on the leading edge of the Ultimate scene.

4. You meet amazing people.

I met all of my best friends in college through the Ultimate Frisbee team. There is no better bonding experience than spending a weekend playing Ultimate Frisbee with some of the coolest people you have ever met.

5. You build up a pretty cool selection of gear.

Tournament swag is the best. Hats, Frisbees, shorts and jerseys. You'll develop an impressive collection of swag from all the different tournaments you go on. Not to mention you can buy some great stuff from companies like 5Ultimate.

6. You can keep playing in the summer.

Almost every major city has a summer Ultimate league. You don;t have to worry about losing your skills during the summer. Find a local summer league and spend your summer playing the best sport there is.

7. You get to play on a coed team.

Not many sports have coed teams but Ultimate Frisbee does! Playing a coed sport is an awesome experience.

8. You become connected with people from all over the country.

It's a small world that gets even smaller when you start playing Ultimate. Everyone knows everyone and you'll have friends and connections scattered across the nation.

9. It's just an all around amazing time.

Ultimate Frisbee is just pure fun all the time. From practices with awesome teammates to tournament weekends to watching the championships with all your friends, if you join your school's Ultimate Frisbee team you will not regret it!

So, it doesn't matter how long you've been going to your university or if you have never played Ultimate Frisbee before. Start the semester right and join the team!

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
