Thank You, Football, For Playing Such An Important Role In My Life

Football is more than just a game for me.

Thank You, Football, For Playing Such An Important Role In My Life
Taylor Lauri

I have been watching and attending football games for as long as can remember. Most people just watch a football game because it's fun and exciting to watch, but for me, it's an experience. I have grown up watching football since I was born. In my family, football is about more than winning, it's about coming together as a family and being able to bond over something that is so special to all of us. I rarely miss a football game and I always find a way to watch whether it's on my ESPN app (yes I do this), on television or attending a game.

Some of my most memorable experiences have been at football games or watching them at home. Almost every year, my friends and I host a Super Bowl party at my house and not only is the game fun to watch, but I am also able to bond with my friends over something I love so dearly. My best friend and I both have a strong love for the game and I believe that has played a large part in our friendship. We are able to talk about something we both love and are able to share that passion for the game together.

Every Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, my family has a football game on, playing in the background. The sound of a football game is so soothing to me and has become so natural. When it came to choosing a school, I had to make sure I was going to have ready access to football. This played an important role when choosing the University of Wisconsin-Madison because I am now able to attend exciting games with my friends. Being that I am from New York, people have always questioned why I'm a Packers fan and I think it's because the fans all share the same love for one thing and one thing only, the game of football.

Although it may sound foolish, football has become such an important part in my life and I have always loved the sport for as long as I can remember. I get way too excited for any football game I go to and find a new love for it every time I watch the game that I love.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
