Football season is one of the best times of the year. It is an excuse to be outside all day and cheer along with thousands of people you don't even know. I absolutely love being surrounded by people who share the same love for a team like me. I am getting goosebumps just thinking about it.
Block is one of the happiest times throughout the fall semester. You run into people you haven't seen in a long time and take a bunch of pictures. Girls will spark up a conversation in the bathroom just to tell you about the food that is at the party. Now that is an important part of the experience.
Everyone is in a good mood on game day. Well, at least at the beginning of the day. If your team ends up losing, people will still want to go out, so no worries there. At Ohio State, we sing Carmen Ohio at the end of each game no matter who won or not.
I find that my friendships are always getting better and better during football season. I love to get ready with my friends and head out for the long day ahead of us. If you're like me, you can't get ready without some music. Putting on music with friends is one way to get everyone pumped up.
Another great thing about football season is that it is an excuse to not do homework all day. Nobody likes doing homework on the weekends, especially on Saturdays. When you have something going on the whole day, this makes it a lot easier to not worry about anything but your team.
I'm extremely lucky to have my sisters in my life. I can always count on them to help me have a great weekend during football season. They are constantly introducing me to all of their friends and showing me love.
Football season is always a great way to get to know other members of the organizations you are in. Some of my organizations have already started to plan away game get-togethers. It really makes you feel at home when you can gather with the people you care about and support your favorite team.
So, make sure that you find people who make Saturday's the best they possibly can be. If you're in college, there are only going to be so many football games that you are an undergrad for. Make use of this time and spend it with the people you love, and maybe you'll even meet more amazing people too.
