11 Tweets That Portray The Philadelphia Flyers' Season So Far

As a Flyers fan, I've grown numb to the feeling you get when your favorite team loses a game. While it hurts to see the team skate off the ice in defeat, I can't help but get excited when the next game is about to start. Then I'm stuck with the feeling of defeat as this one loss becomes a losing streak of games.

Naturally, I complain when I don't get the results I want to see, as does every other human being.

I try to stay positive about the remaining games in the season (it's only October), but I can't help but let my disappointment slip out every once in a while. Of course, the internet is absolutely no help in keeping your head up about your team's future, but it's sometimes relieving to know that other fans feel the same way about a loss that you do.

Of all the social media sites out there, Twitter seems to be the most popular among hockey fans. It's very tempting to log on to the site and express your thoughts at that moment, rather than seeing how everything plays out later. That's especially true when it comes to Flyers fans.

In celebration of the team's most recent loss to the Boston Bruins, I went to Twitter and picked out 11 of my favorite tweets that show just how our season is going so far:

1. Me too, Gritty

Gritty's falling harder than the Flyers' league rank.

2. A movement I can get behind

This is something all fans wish for on a daily basis.

3. I was also guilty of this

It's almost frustrating to see your favorite team not do so hot after so long.

4. Some people think it's a coaching problem

As the season goes on, I can only imagine we'll be seeing more complaints about the Flyers' head coach, Dave Hakstol.

5. Yeah

This is something I would like to see just once. After that, we'll decide what's gonna happen.

6. There's still hope!

No joke, the Flyers faced a ten game losing streak last season and still made playoffs! It's still incredibly early in the season and honestly anything can happen.

7. Simple math

This is a point that you don't have to be a super genius to make. The Flyers haven't won back to back games yet, and it's not just bad luck bringing us down.

8. Update on the score:

The Flyers just lost their most recent game to the Boston Bruins, with the ending score being 3-0. Naturally, Flyers and Bruins fans alike took to the internet to make a joke regarding the Flyers' mascot's jersey number.

9. Our team is full of talent...

... it's just a matter of having the right coaching staff to figure out what works well and what doesn't.

10. It's uncanny

Not to diss on the Blues without reasoning, but it's scary how similar these teams are in management and performance.

11. At the end of the day, we're fans for a reason

I'm always ready to watch a hockey game, whether I know the outcome or not. I've never been one to be called an optimist, but I know that there's no sense in being permanently upset about something you can't control.

I talk about this team a lot, both on Twitter, and in my everyday life. Whether it's good or bad, the Flyers will always be my team and I'll gladly accept the end results of any game. I know that I'm just one person, and a whole team is never going to care about what I may have to say, but I hope they know that I genuinely enjoy watching them tear up the ice.

I scream at my laptop on many occasions and tend to go on and on about how much better something can be done, but it's out of my love and overall passion for the game. These raw emotions are one of the most interesting parts about hockey as a sport.

In the end, Flyers fans are passionate, dedicated and only want what's best for the team, even if we don't actually know what the best is.

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.
