With only one loss on their backs so far this season, the Mississippi State women's basketball team is on the road to success. With lots of SEC teams still left to play, this group of talented women are set up to finish out this season as predicted SEC champs. Hopefully, they can then make their way to the NCAA postseason competitions.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere at an MSU women's basketball game is second to none. Every fan is on their feet cheering on our ladies to what we hope will be a victory. The defense cheers are loud, and the music is louder, creating an electric energy at the Hump.

Back to back Final Four appearances

The MSU women's basketball team appeared in both the 2017 and 2018 Final Four games and have never ceased to amaze us. Even though the outcome wasn't what we had hoped, they still played their hardest and represented our university extremely well.

Coach Vic Schaefer

Papa Vic is one of our most prized possessions. Mess with him, and you get all of Mississippi State on your bad side too. He never fails to bring an encouraging word to us or to make us all proud. Plus, he showed us how to combine the two most important things in an MSU fan's life by his phrase "praise the Lord and go dawgs."

The players' love for their fans

After every game, the players stay to sign autographs and take pictures with fans of all ages. They are so appreciative of the support they receive and they show it in any way that they can.

Teaira McCowan

She has strength, beauty, and a little bit of attitude. The perfect combination to win our hearts over. Her blocked shots give us our smiles and her sass gives us our laughs. She is a powerhouse, and we are glad she is on our side.

History is being made

Throughout the recent past years, history has been made in the women's basketball program for Mississippi State. From beating ranked teams, to receiving higher team rankings, the team has not only gotten recognition for themselves, but also for our university.

Whether you like basketball or not, this team is one to love and follow. Find the rest of the season's schedule here and follow them the rest of this spring semester. Hail State!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
