Actually, Football Games In Tuscaloosa Are Still Fun

I'm sure that if our football team can play all four quarters, you can take your heels off and stay for four quarters

Actually, Football Games In Tuscaloosa Are Still Fun

This article is in response to a previously posted article, "Why Football Games In Tuscaloosa Aren't Fun Anymore."

Time to state that you are wrong.

Your love for Alabama football shouldn't end after your freshman year. If anything, it gets better. It is mind-blowing that a student can find Bama games annoying and boring.

As for choosing UA, 90% of the students did not attend the University of Alabama for the football program alone. Being apart of a University that has one of the best football teams in the country is simply a bonus. The University of Alabama is more than an amazing football team or a "party school," it's a great school full of numerous scholarships and great opportunities within all the colleges.

Let me explain why you should still be interested in attending Alabama football games.

1. We win... Every! Single! Same!

The joy of being amazing at football is having stress free games. This past Ole Miss game was the most fun I've had at a football game — because we were winning. It is always exciting to walk away from the stadium with a W.

Standing by Coach Saban, I'm sure that if our football team can play all four quarters, you can take your heels off and stay for four quarters. #RespectForSaban

2. The main "event" is the game.

The students get excited about game days because IT'S GAME DAY. How a student chooses to celebrate the beginning or end of a victory is up to that person.

College campuses are riddled with drunk frat guys everywhere, not just at the game. Speaking as a person who does not drink, I can assure you the point of Saturdays is the actual game.

Game day outfits are a big deal, you have to plan your outfit around standing for 4 hours. But, if you are so worried about your game day outfit, be more cautious about who you sit around.

3. What is wrong with taking a picture???

I'm sorry but if you don't want to take someone's picture just say no. No one is forcing you to. Also, I hardly see people taking pictures unless it is before/after the game, or during a timeout. In today's society, most people take pictures to remember the FUN times they had.

Getting the right picture during any event is a part of today's culture.

4. Over half the girls in the stadium do understand football.

Just because someone doesn't understand it doesn't mean they can't enjoy the game.

Not every single girl has to know the all the plays when it comes to football. It is not a crime for people to attend sporting events that they know little about, because they want to be a part of the school spirit.

Roll Tide.

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.
