If you're not a packers fan, you should be

If you're not a Green Bay Packers fan, you should be. In the case that you have no idea what I am talking about, the Packers are an American football team from Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Here are just a few of the thousands of reasons why you should be proud to call yourself a Packers fan.

Reason 1:

The Hail Mary pass. On Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 the Green Bay Packers Played the Detroit Lions. Luckily the Lions defensive end, Devin Taylor, pulled on Aaron Rodgers face mask and the Packers got an extra play after the game clock hit 0:00. Rodgers threw a 61-yard touchdown pass to Richard Rodgers with literally no time left on the clock giving the Packers the 27-23 win.

Just let that sink in.

61 yards. That is insane. Richard Rodgers was not even supposed to be the one to catch the ball. He intended to box out and clear space in the end zone so Davante Adams could catch the ball. That Hail Mary pass gave the Packers hope to continue on after multiple losses.

Reason 2:

Aaron Rodgers. What is not to like about him? First of all he is such a stud and he is the quarterback of the Packers. That should be enough to make you jump on the Packers bandwagon.

Reason 3:

Pitch Perfect 2. The Packers Clay Matthews, T.J. Lang, Josh Sitton, Don Barclay and David Bakhtiari made a cameo in Pitch Perfect 2, and personally, I found it perfect. If the scene in this movie does not convince you to love the Packers, you should reconsider everything in life. Plus, Clay Matthews is on fire in this movie. P.S., go watch Pitch Perfect 2 if you haven’t, it’s hilarious.

Reason 4:


When you are a GB Packers fan, you have a sense of community. Ever since 1960, Lambeau Field has been sold out. Even now the waiting list to get season tickets is more than 30 years long. That’s a really big commitment.

Reason 5:


The NFL Network countdown program, the NFL Top 10, named the Lambeau Leap the 2nd greatest touchdown celebration of all time. How cool is that? Do you want to know something even cooler? Other NFL teams have tried to have their own version of the Lambeau Leap, but the very first time anyone saw it was with Packers safety LeRoy Butler in 1993. Butler returned a fumble recovery for a touchdown, and while in the end zone, he ran to the stands and jumped into the fans arms. The Packers started a thing.

Being a Packers fan can be really hard at times when they have tough years. But it is all worth it. There is so much dedication and loyalty for the Packers. During the winter months, Lambeau Field will be anywhere from 10-30 degrees fahrenheit and people still go to the games. Honestly, if you’re not a Packers fan, that is alright. Not really, but you probably love your team just as much as I love mine. At the end of the day, we just need to give support to our teams.

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.

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.
