Top 11 Aesthetically Pleasing NFL Teams

Disclaimer: I don't know much at all about the rules of football itself. Baseball is and forever will be my heart and soul. I'm a St. Louis Cardinals fan, so needless to say I'm not used to losing. I can always plan on my October and November being full of baseball and endless excitement because of that. Yet when this past NLDS didn't go as well, I turned to football as a distraction from the pain. The game itself has never interested me, but I finally found one thing that does: the uniforms and overall aesthetic of the teams. Regardless of how the team plays or who their fans are, if the team has gross colors *cough Green Bay* I'm out. So here are some of my favorite teams:

11. Atlanta Falcons

There's no doubt about it: The Falcons mean business. The red and black colors can be construed as harsh and intimidating, but isn't that the point of football? I couldn't take a team seriously if their whole team was based off of something friendly and fun. (i.e. Miami Dolphins).

10. Cincinnati Bengals

Those stripes, though. They embody their mascot so well. The only reason they're number 10 on the list is because orange is kind of a gross color.

9. Buffalo Bills

Can we just talk about how clever the Buffalo Bills are in general for their name? Not to mention the fact that they have a patriotic bison (so what if they didn't get the exact taxonomy) charging on the side of their helmet. Stay classy, Buffalo.

8. Minnesota Vikings

Purple and gold could so easily be the cheesiest color combination on this earth, but the Vikings make it majestic. Also the horns on the newly designed 2015 uniforms are excellent to say the least.

7. New England Patriots

Honestly, I just like their color scheme and the fact that their team name is the Patriots. It's clear, it's clean, it's patriotic. Well done, New England.

6. Carolina Panthers

Surprisingly, the Panthers have a lot of aesthetically pleasing elements aside from the man beauty of Cam Newton. Their colors could so easily be obnoxious and overwhelming, but the electric blue serves to do just that - electrify their presence on the field. Also, that panther is fierce.

5. New Orleans Saints

There are few symbols on this earth that are classier than the fleur de lis. Not only does it exude pure class, it is one of the oldest symbols of the trinity. This is fitting given that they are after all the Saints, yet it holds meaning that is near and dear to many. Not to mention, the contrast of black and gold is a class combination.

4. Indianapolis Colts

Blue and white is a simple yet clean and inviting color combination. The horseshoe gives off a rustic yet refined vibe that will never grow old. Keep it up, Indianapolis.

3. St. Louis Rams

Before you start judging, just know that I do not condone the mustardy gold color of the jersey. I will always be a fan of the pure gold helmets. But the incorporation of the mascot throughout the uniform, particularly in the helmet, makes that design my favorite helmet that has ever existed in the NFL.

Isn't this so much better?

2. San Francisco 49ers

Their colors are bold, yet not overwhelming and cheesy. Their logo is not overly embellished, yet not so simple that I can't take them seriously *cough Cleveland Browns cough Pittsburgh Steelers*. Really, what more is there to say?

1. Dallas Cowboys

And now we've made it to my favorite team: the Dallas Cowboys. Their colors are very understated, which I appreciate from a team. While bold colors can be very alluring, they can also be borderline obnoxious. The Cowboys keep it classy not only with their colors, but with their logo as well. A single star represents the glorious state of Texas and everyone's hopes and dreams along with it. What more can you really ask for?

So there you have it. The gap between non-football lovers and the rest of the United States is finally bridged. Let the celebrations of world peace commence.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
