11 Thoughts Every Baseball Lover Has In October — The Best, Most Nerve-Wracking Time Of The Year

Every true baseball fan knows that October is the most exciting time of the year. There are heartbreaks, joyful victories, and legendary moments in every post-season baseball game.

You may find yourself stuck in a love/hate relationship with the sport for most of the month but there is nothing better than watching your favorite team pile up Ws on their way to the World Series.

How is it already October? 

The start of October baseball is always bittersweet. You are excited to see your team play in the post-season (if they have a good record), but you're sad to see yet another MLB season come to an end.

Post-season baseball is the best baseball.

Tons of action-packed games, countless innings spent on the edge of your seat, and the rush of joy when your team finally wins is all any baseball fan can ask for.

There are so many games going on that you find yourself glued to the TV for hours on end and constantly checking team updates. Anything can happen in the post-season!

It's our year!

Watching your favorite team play post-season baseball is super exciting and you may find yourself getting swept up in the fantasy of the players raising the World Series trophy.

It's best to be optimistic at the start of October, but prepare for a journey full of ups and downs.

What time is the game tonight?

With so many games going on, it can be hard to keep track of who is playing who, when the game is, and where it's being played.

You'll find yourself constantly checking your phone for game updates and scores, even when you should be asleep.

I'm just going to watch one more inning...

is a lie we all tell ourselves when we tune in to a game. Even if your team isn't playing, there seems to be a great game on at every hour of the day.

October baseball can serve as a great distraction to fuel your procrastination.

WHO got injured?

October baseball is full of surprises (and they're not always good).

There's no feeling that is worse than watching the ESPN news scroll and seeing that your star starting pitcher was just placed on the injured list before an elimination game.

I could totally manage a baseball team.

In post-season baseball, there are always moments of frustration where you wish that you could march into the dugout and take over the team (I'm looking at you, Dave Roberts).

Why is the ump calling that a ball?

The frustration often boils into yelling at the umpires through the TV screen, especially when your team is already losing and the other team has runners in scoring position with no outs.

Even more frustrating when you watch the replay about ten times and can see that the ball is clearly in the strike zone.

I could have taken a better swing at that pitch!

Okay, maybe you can't but in the moment you're surely thinking it!

HOME RUN!!!

Nothing beats the joy of watching one of your favorite players swing for the fences and hit a dinger. This is especially true if it means that your team is taking the lead in a nail-biter.

One run closer to the world series.

There is nothing more exciting than watching the World Series.

Seeing your team in the world series is an amazing feeling. World series games have you on the edge of your seat for all nine innings because anything could happen at any minute.

You're hanging on every pitch as if your life depended on it. It is extremely stressful but it is so worth it if your team gets to reign as the world champions until next October rolls around.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
