11 Thoughts UTK Students Have At Vol Football Games

It's almost that time again where on Saturdays all of VolNation is there, everyone is wearing their best-colored orange and are decked out in UT gear. Your jersey has been hanging in your closet since the end of last football season and now you can't wait to wear it again. You're ready to fight the heat of Tennessee in August/ September and the pain of standing the whole game. The games are a lot of fun, so here are some thoughts you might think during them.

1. I missed football season so much!

It's back to school and back to football so it's definitely football time in Tennessee!

2. Ok, but it's really hot now.

Mid-August in Tennessee is probably not the best time to wear heavy jeans and try to force yourself to wear your hair down. If you do just try to remember to have a ponytail on your wrist.

3. I need to find Smokey.

If we're all being honest here the real reason some might come to UT football games is only to see Smokey run across the field.

4. I really want to get something to eat, but don't want to lose my spot.

You're debating if you should lose the good spot you have and travel through a sea of people, just to wait in line forever to go get one of those lemonade ice things.

5. Alright when's half-time my feet hurt.

You'll give your all to Tennessee today, but when your feet start hurting from standing you might have to sit this one out.

6. Wow I didn't know there were so many coaches in the stands!

I guess some people just think they know better than the actual football coach, so they're basically screaming into your ear what the players should be doing.

7. Hope we score soon so I can sing Rocky Top.

The song will get stuck in your head, but you can't help sing it at the top of you lungs every time the band starts to play it.

8. Oh gosh please don't fall please don't fall (you talking to the cheerleaders).

They know what they're doing and have been doing this for years, but the worrier in you still silently prays no one will fall off someone's shoulders during the game.

9. I need to try to save all my water till the end of the game.

Once again you don't really feel like losing your seat and walking to a concession stand, but you're also dying of thirst so you're trying to save all the water you have for the entire game.

10. Can't wait to get into some AC.

Sweat is dripping down your face and back, so you really can't wait till your back at home with your AC blasting on you.

11. Hope next weeks game isn't a noon game.

The game you're at right now is coming to an end and you're already praying that next week's game isn't at noon. I think we could all agree no one is a true fan of noon games.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
