Why Cleveland Cavaliers Fans Still Love The Cavs

Even Though The Cavs Are Currently At A Low Point, I'm Still A Die-Hard Cleveland Cavaliers Fan

Don't let the fact that we're 1-6 distract you from the fact that the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Championship finals.

Even Though The Cavs Are Currently At A Low Point, I'm Still A Die-Hard Cleveland Cavaliers Fan
Tabitha Timms

I grew up loving basketball, whether it was rooting for my high school team or watching LeBron James out on the court on my T.V., until he broke up with us the first time back in 2010. Even then I wasn't mad at him, — I mean you have to do what's best for yourself and your career.

The thing about basketball is it's fun to watch. Everything's fast-paced as the players move elegantly across the court. Every pass is smooth. Every basket made makes a very satisfying "swoosh" sound, which makes it all worth watching.

We've been lucky here in Cleveland, blessed with all-star players and back-to-back playoff rounds, but we're kind of losing it right now. Our head coach was fired — which may be for the best — and our power forward has a broken toe and may be out for a month, leaving us basketball fans are feeling a little defeated at the moment.

Despite all the doubt I'm still pulling for us, as I sit here writing in my Cavs sweatpants. The Cavs have always been somewhat of an underdog — and I embrace that. I'll still believe in them even if we lose every single game this season. I'll be the one shouting, "We'll get 'em next year!"

We all bring up that one time we won the finals like broken records, but it will always tug at my heartstrings. Seeing the players crying and our city in celebration, it was genuine, raw and emotional. Our team represented a family and a passion only Cleveland has.

It was much more than just getting a trophy and waving it in front of a camera.

Our team's lineup has changed there's no doubt in that, but the passion we as a city have for the game and the faith we have in our players will still prevail.

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.
