Nobody loves the University of Michigan more than the U of M loves U of M.

The University Of Michigan Students Share The Most Unexpected Places Someone Has Yelled 'Go Blue'

If I'm wearing anything Michigan related (which I'm not going to lie, is basically 90% of my life) there's almost a guarantee that someone, somewhere will show their excitement through the much loved "go blue" shoutout.

1. Precipice Trail, Arcadia National Park

Yep, as we were on a nearly vertical cliff passage, a shout from below got our attention - and of course, we sent the love right back.

2. Merida, Mexico

I was volunteering at an animal shelter that is definitely not considered tourist territory, yet one day walking from my hostel to the shelter someone out a car window yelled "go blue."

3. Teacup Ride, Disney World

I couldn't believe it, I honestly think it saved me from throwing up out of nausea because I was so caught off guard.

4. Kayaking, Pictured Rocks MI

We were on the water where there were maybe 5 or 6 people in boats passing us every half hour. Still, an older gentleman yelled from his canoe "go blue" a distance away.

5. Going in for surgery, Miami FL

I had to get my appendix out, and who would have thought my surgeon was a die hard Michigan fan.

6. Rome, Italy

We were in a tiny bread shop, and I was sporting my favorite Michigan cap. Someone tapped me on the shoulder and said "I like your taste in hats" and was basically wearing the same one.

7. Columbus, OH

Funny right? I was in line at a sub shop and someone hollered "go blue" across the restaurant - I'm surprised we made it out alive.

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.
