You Know You're A Golfer When...

( want to throw your clubs in a trash compactor)

You Know You're A Golfer When...
Swing Strength

1. You think that golf shoes are the coolest sports shoes because they're basically Oxford cleats.

I mean let's be real. You could meet the President in these shoes. (Not that you actually would. You wouldn't risk damaging those snazzy cleats)

2. Furthermore, golf is, hands down, the most stylish sport.

Look at those guys. They're ready to check in at the Ritz.

3. It might also be the snobbiest.

"Quarter mil says you can't make par on this hole."
"Half mil and you've got yourself a bet."

4. But no matter who you are, you probably have a golf tan.

These are real people. Golf tans are legit, guys.

5. And no matter what you're doing, where you are, fore means heads up!!

Even with the professionals. Check it out here (with the sound ON). And even with the professionals it's just as embarrassing when hoards of fans have to scamper away screaming as they part like the Red Sea.

6. This is your worst fear...except with humans

That is the face of pure horror.

7. Screaming "I got an eagle!" doesn't mean you're a super-patriot.

It just means you're a super-golfer...get it?

8. This was you at one point

You've learned a lot from that day.

9. Now look at you

That's the kind of shot you have to whistle and make a visor with your hand for

10. Just kidding, this is probably you.

On the daily.

11. Like, same.

"Hm. Well. Would you look at that, Shirley. How in the world..."

12. Speaking of, you know how to fix a divot like a pro.

"Oops. Darn. Nobody saw that. Lemme just fill it in real quick. Pat it down like a pro. Don't worry, fans, I meant to do that. Just practicing my divot filling in skills."

13. You often want to kill yourself.

"Not. Again. Darn. It. Nobody saw it. Nobody saw it. Deep breaths. You're better than this."

14. Honestly, same

Who hasn't wanted to rip apart their golf glove like a wild animal??

15. I feel that.

"Oh, look. The ball fizzled out just like my dreams of becoming a professional golfer."

16. You have a ~routine~

"Nope. Almost there. Wait! I missed it. Sorry. The club's not ready yet. The grips not right. There we go. Almost there. Nope."

17. Sometimes it's a little extreme

"Don't laugh. Don't laugh. Oooh, God. Okay look at the bird over there. Keep it together, Larry. You are a caddy, for goodness sake."

18. Golfers are superstitious OKAY??

You okay, Charles??

19. Golf etiquette is a serious thing

Repair. Your. Ball. Marks.

20. There are the spoken rules.

Please, for the love of God, rake out your footprints!!

21. Then there are the unspoken ones.

22. You beg people to take care of the golf course so it can look like this all the time and be absolutely beautiful.

*Angels descend from Heaven* *Trumpets blare* *The clouds part and holy light shines down upon the pin*

23. You know the Brians...

Just watch it.

24. From the Tigers...

Just by their stance. And how obnoxious they are.

25. But you also know that everyone has their bad days.

Tip: watch it with the sound ON.

26. And their unlucky days.

I have no words for this except...I'm so sorry.

27. You've got golf smarts.

You actually go inside when the clubhouse sounds the siren.

And you're smart enough not to be the guy driving the RC car.

28. And, finally, you know you're a golfer when it's actually fun!

So go out there and have fun!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
