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.

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.

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.

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.
