Signs You Are An American Soccer Fan

Yupp, You probably fit this stereotype

Signs You Are An American Soccer Fan

We all know that one soccer fan that nobody seems to understand. That is because not so many Americans are fans of the beautiful game. But the ones that are fulfill a distinct persona. And this is what it really is:

1. You Call Football "Soccer" and Hand-Egg "Football"

Unfortunately, American has called football "soccer" since the beginning of time. It doesn't exactly make sense; but it is part of being a soccer fan from America.

2. You Have a Fancy Hair Cut

Have to rock that fresh cut!

3. You Have This Pair of Soccer Shorts

These shorts are so ugly. Yet everyone seems to have them. Though, you do not count as a fan if you had these shorts when you were four. That is because everyone had these shorts when they were four which, is also because every person in the entire United States of America played soccer when they were four.

4. Your style consists of soccer jerseys with jeans or khaki's

Your kit(s) may not be as dank as this one pictured below; but surely your style has at least one of these.

5. You Are Part of The American Outlaws

No, this does not mean you are just one of America's outlaws. Rather, it means you are a part of the largest fan club of US Soccer.

6. You Go to MLS Games Wearing anything related to soccer that you can find

Okay, some MLS fans are dedicated enough to go to matches reppin' their teams colors. Though, often times, the dress code for MLS matches is just any soccer jersey.

7. In Europe, you support Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, or Juventus

That's right you are likely a bandwagon of European teams if you care enough beyond Major League Soccer to support another team. Often times, American Fans do not look into the teams they support as much as the fans from Europe.

8. Pick-up Games Are Your Favorite Thing to do to stay Physically Active

Baseball likes to say baseball is America's favorite past time. But it is actually soccer if you think about how often pick-up games are going on in America.

9. Alex Morgan is your biggest crush

Something about that girl, man.

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.

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.
