Puck Yeah! Bobcats Hockey Is Back

2 words: Cawlidge Hawkey.

I was never a hockey player, nor am I one of those people that have followed the game since I was four years old, but it doesn’t mean I love the game any less than anyone else. I could tell you the rules, my favorite players, recite the Miracle speech at any given time, and could not be any more excited for this upcoming season.

Hockey games are a staple at Quinnipiac. Friday and Saturday nights from October until March are dedicated to going to the TD Bank Sports Center at about 6 p.m. and then going out to a party or Toad’s following the game. Hockey is the tie that binds all Bobcats together during the school year. We win together and we lose together. Or we tie together (TBT to the Yale game last year. Good times).

Though I personally go to the game for the love of hockey, there are plenty of other things to look forward to when you’re there. Have it be the rush of trying to find a good seat, the promo video that plays a few minutes before 7:00, or the time in between periods where you want your 15 seconds of fame on the jumbotron/dance cam, any of these are what we look forward to and how we enjoy the game.

We wait for the email every Monday that says tickets are available. We then rush and download them online as soon as we can, just to reserve our ticket in case the game sells out. We wait all week until Friday and/or Saturday and deck out in our Quinnipiac gear and go to the games. It’s just how it is. We don’t have football, but we do have the greatest sport on Earth: hockey. And we’re pretty damn good at it too.

Admit it, Bobcat Hockey could’ve been one of the reasons you decided to come to Quinnipiac. I know it played a factor in my decision (following academics, of course). The evenings spent at hockey games are some of the best memories I’ve had at Quinnipiac so far and will be some of my favorite memories in the time to come.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
