The 10 Commandments For Girls Dating Football Addicts To Avoid A 15-Yard Penalty

Ahh, summer is here.

The fresh breeze, the free time to do activities that you didn't have time for during the year, and most importantly? There's no football...for another month.

Yes, football is fast approaching, and those of us dating a "sports guy" are starting to get PTSD from the endless game plays from the last football season and missing TV shows due to ESPN highlights. For all of my MVG's (Most Valuable Girlfriends), I have composed the 10 Commandments for Dating a Sports Fanatic.

1. Come to terms that he'll disappear for 6 months

I'm sorry, but don't be surprised that come August when the preseason games start, your boy drops from the face of the earth. Just remember, the game will end and they'll be back in your arms (but probably talking about the game.)

2. He'll have more love for a certain player than you

How many pictures of me does my boyfriend have in his room? 0.

How many does he have of Russell Wilson from the Seahawks? 3.

Do the math.

3. Try (or pretend) to learn the different plays to the best of your ability

You may not be interested, but if you EVER want to converse with your boo during the football season, you need to learn the sport. You don't need to know every play, who won every championship or game, but just the basic ins and outs of what football consists of. Trust me, it'll help to keep your attention when actually watching the game.

4. Listen to him when he get's mad over a loss

You're going to have to play psychiatrist, and it's only fair!

We go to our man when we have some girl drama, so why the double standard? He's going to be angry at his team, as they are bound not to win every single game (it would be great though, huh?).

Let him rant, scream, and pout. We'll never know the wirings of the male brain, to be honest.

5. Get ready to spend some major $$$ on the games

Tickets definitely aren't cheap, so start saving some moolah now.

Your boyfriend is going to want to splurge on tickets to football games, and those aren't exactly cheap. And the food? That isn't cheap either.

Case in point, start saving little by little of your paychecks, so you can go out and enjoy yourself at the stadium!

6. He's probably loud and obnoxious during the games...that's common

Either wear earphones or join the fun in yelling your ass off. There's no in-between.

7. Root for his team if you don't have your own

If you have a fave team, or if you choose to root for the team you were raised with, go for it! IF not, root for your boyfriend's team. This will definitely save you from a couple of fights!

8. Ask questions, and get involved!

To a football-fanatic, there is nothing cuter than a girl asking questions and getting involved with his sport. So, go ahead and ask those dumb questions!

9. Remember: football season ends in February

Face it: the Superbowl is fun.

Not only is it a reason to party, but also because it is the last game of the season! And if that isn't something to drink to, I don't know what is!

10. But as fast as it goes, it comes just as quickly

It's a cycle, but hey - at least you have a month left to have your boyfriend back!

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.

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.

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.
