A Winter Morning in Michigan Described by NFL Players

A Winter Morning in Michigan Described by NFL Players

It's winter, which means it's cold. I mean like the temperature is lower than my age and I'm 20. After a long vacation, nobody likes getting up and going back to their normal routine, and the cold weather, snow, cloudy days and wind makes it that much harder. Here is a typical morning for anybody living in Michigan or really any cold weather state.

1. The alarm goes off

This can’t be happening, my bed will be cold without me.

2. Getting dressed realizing the temperature won’t go above 20, so it’s a hoodie day…AGAIN

It’s the uniform of college students in Michigan from November until probably April.

3. Trying to stay warm while the shower warms up

Does this count as exercise, because I’m already getting tired

4. Realizing that you can’t go back to bed, despite how cold and wet you are

Why don’t I live anywhere else but Michigan? I am absolutely moving to Florida one day.

5. The first drink of coffee that keeps you going

You know maybe today won’t be so bad. My coffee is fresh, I’m basically in my pajamas, I think it’s going to be a good day.

6. When you realize you forgot to warm up your car and its covered in ice and snow, five minutes before you have to leave.

NOOOOOOO! IT’S COLD OUT THERE. Why do I always forget to do this?

7. When they don’t plow the roads

Really. You had one job. There isn’t even a snowbank for me to “accidentally” back into so I can’t go to school.

8. Watching the out of towners attempt to drive on our snowy roads

You can go faster than 25. Cmon. You won’t slide on the roads, so let’s move it. Move. It. FASTER! Great, now I have to stop at the light. The Lord is testing me today.

9. Arriving at your destination, realizing you have to leave your warm car, and be productive.

I’m too cold to accomplish things. Maybe when I get older, I will work from home. Awww I want to go home!

10. Your hair after taking off your hat in front of everybody around you

Why do I even bother with looking nice? Winter ruins everything.

I love living in Michigan so much, but winter mornings are not always easy. I’m sure many of the states feel this way right now, but that’s what makes us strong. We leave our beds every morning when the temperature is below freezing, and we do things. I know crazy. But, that is a Pure Michigan.

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.

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.
