The Aftermath Of Rainy Football Games

How am I feeling right now?

The Aftermath Of Rainy Football Games

You know, this was not my original article idea. I had my first kiss a couple of days ago and I was originally going to write about it because in my article where I talked about having my first boyfriend I said at the end will I write about my first kiss.

But that all went out the window when I woke up one Sunday morning with a nasty cold.

How did that cold come about? A football game. Not just any football game, but an away football game.

So now here I am, sitting on my bed with a glass of milk and a Try Guys video pulled up to watch while I write this article and after I'm done, I'm door dashing Chipotle.

Next week will be the article about my first kiss.

Let's start this back when I found out that my college's marching band (which I am a part of) was going to travel to the University of Notre Dame to watch our football team play as well as perform on the field there at halftime. Yes, I was excited for it to happen and then suddenly in a blink of an eye, it came.

So the day finally came, and I spent an entire day in South Bend, Indiana watching my university's football team get slaughtered. Yes, we were all expecting that result. We didn't score a single touchdown. But however, during the game, it rained. Yes, it rained, and as a person who is also carrying a woodwind instrument, it's not good for my instrument.

The game ends, we get on the busses, head back to Ohio, put our uniforms away, and head home. So I finally get home and essentially pass out on the couch. Everything is going great.

Until I woke up.

My nose was stuffy, my head was congested, my throat was dry...I had a cold.

Even my mom knew when talking to her on the phone that I had a cold. And it was because of the rain from yesterday's game and that it was literally becoming fall (which I am grateful for I am done with the hot weather I want sweaters and jeans weather right now).

So here I am, a couple of hours later, rushing to finish this article about how I am doing after the craziness of yesterday's football game. I am still sick. But I did go to church and got some groceries on the way back to the apartment. Later I got to go get my friend from a bus station and then come back so it's already a busy day, but hey I already had a great weekend. I went on a double date, ate at Olive Garden for the first time, had my first kiss, PERFORMED AT FREAKING NOTRE DAME I MEAN COME ON, and got to be around amazing people.

Yes, I know the title is about the football game, but I would say this weekend was great.

Now, to watch more of the Try Guys.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
