17 Occasions When Saying 'War Eagle!' Is Completely Acceptable, If Not Mandatory

As an Auburn student, "War Eagle!" can be used in so many different situations, so here are a few of them:

1. When you find an open table in RBD during finals week.

A blessing from above, honestly.

2. When you're 2018 SEC Men's Basketball Champions.

We're a basketball school, right?

3. When you lose to Alabama in the SEC Tournament.

War Eagle, anyways.

4. When you beat Alabama and UGA during the regular season, only for both of the teams to play each other in the National Championship.

The most Auburn thing to ever happen to Auburn.

5. When the Chick-fil-A line is not out the door.

You know it's a good day when you don't have to wait 45 minutes for a chicken sandwich.

6. When Casey Mize pitches a no-hitter.

We're a baseball school now.

7. When you see Aubie anywhere on campus.

I feel a personal soul connection.

8. When Spirit flies over the stadium.

Tears. Actual tears.

9. When no one is on the concourse handing out fliers, asking you if you have voted, etc.

SGA Campaign, Homecoming Week, and Welcome Week are all times that it's just easier to avoid the concourse.

10. When you don't get a parking ticket.

A gift honestly.

11. When you find a parking spot in downtown Auburn.

Near to impossible.

12. When you find the perfect game day outfit.

Thank you, "Behind the Glass" and "Dress Up." You are appreciated.

13. When you pass a group of high school students on tour.

Do it. Come to the Loveliest Village on the Plains.

14. When a class gets canceled.

Everyone's favorite email.

15. Anytime you see anyone you know.

War Eagle. All day, every day.

16. Anytime you hear, "Chris Davis is going to drop back into the end zone in single safety. Well, I guess if this thing comes up short he can field it and run it out. Alright, here we go. 56-yarder, it's got — no, it does not have the leg. And Chris Davis takes it in the back of the end zone. He'll run it out to the 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 45 — There goes Davis!Davis is going to run it all the way back! Auburn's going to win the football game! Auburn's going to win the football game! He ran the missed field goal back! He ran it back 109 yards! They're not going to keep them off the field tonight! Holy cow! Oh, my God! Auburn wins! Auburn has won the Iron Bowl! Auburn has won the Iron Bowl in the most unbelievable fashion you will ever see! I cannot believe it! 34–28! And we thought 'A Miracle in Jordan-Hare' was amazing! Oh, my Lord in Heaven! Chris Davis just ran it 109 yards and Auburn is going to the championship game!"

It happens more often you would think.

17. Literally anytime ever.

It's a greeting and goodbye. It's everything in between.

God Bless and War Eagle!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
