Alas, with over 100 sabre points, I was not awarded a ticket to the upcoming Duke vs UVA men's basketball game.

1. Panic when everyone else is getting their tickets

"I'm group 1, what are you?"

2. Refresh your email over and over and over

When the new email is just a stupid coupon...

3. Convince yourself that the system just has a glitch

UVA email is just slow sometimes... that's probably it...

4. Stare at the email informing you that the world has ended

Sit in shock for approximately 10 minutes trying not to cry.

5. Tell your friends to get sympathy

Send a snapchat to everyone you know because this is monumental news.

6. ... just for them to respond in a way that signals that they DO NOT understand your pain

They are NOT reacting nearly as passionate as they should be.

7. Get angry

THE WORLD IS NOT JUST.

8. Do they not understand that I'm a fourth year?

This is my last chance to see Duke... I deserve this! I worked so hard!

9. So maybe if I get hit by a bus, they'll give me a Duke ticket instead of free tuition?

Sees a bus in the distance... steps in road.

10. Try to convince yourself that this won't matter in 10 years

media.giphy.com

... unsuccessfully.

11. First years with hardly any sabre points got tickets?!

Excuse me? They're not even real fans.

12. Determine which organ to sell on the black market

Will a kidney get me a ticket? How about a sliver of my liver?

13. Wallow in self pity

Wake me up on February 10th.

14. Put Zion as my lock screen in spite

I hope we lose so everyone else can feel my pain (not really, but also really)

15. Any time someone asks how you are, yell, "I didn't get a Duke ticket!"

Don't talk to me right now...

16. To rub the salt into my wounds, find out that College Gameday is coming, too

Yippee...

17. Boycott and leave Charlottesville all together

I'm just going to leave Cville and distance myself from the source of my sadness

It's like the college basketball equivalent of missing the Rapture...

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.
