6 Stages Of Being A UVA Basketball Fan

If you're a hoo who loves the hoos, you can certainly understand the stress of watching UVA basketball. We are ranked number 3 in the nation, right under Duke and Gonzaga. UVA basketball has only lost to Duke but has come close in a few games. The stress of watching these close-call games against teams ranked lower than us is unimaginable.

1. You get bored with the games in the beginning of the season

The easy wins aren't that exciting, and they're pretty much expected.

2. You watch the Tech vs. UVA game and immediately realize how good UVA basketball really is

Giphy

We doubled their score by the first half, but lost to them last year. That's pretty impressive.

3. You watch UVA lose to Duke by 2 points and feel immense pain

Giphy

It's really depressing when we could have won, but didn't.

4. UVA starts to come a little too close with lower-ranked teams, like NC State

Giphy

Now you wish you were back to the boring games and the easy wins.

5. You skip your homework, studying, and absolutely all other responsibilities to watch UVA basketball

Giphy

Nothing else matters.

6. You realize you're in love with the entire team, coach, and assistants

Is this bad? Some are engaged/married with kids. Oh well.

Hopefully, we don't have to play Duke again.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
