MSU Hockey

This past Friday, my boyfriend, my best friend, and I piled into my car and drove from East Lansing to Detroit, where we met my family, to watch the “Dual In The D”. The Spartans and the dreaded Wolverines were meeting for the 3rd time this hockey season at the Joe Louis Arena to battle it out.

I was skeptical. I follow our hockey team, although I don’t have season tickets. We were predicted to do downright amazing and even win the Big Ten Championship…weeellll….I guess all predictions can’t be right can they? We haven’t been doing too hot, and our past two games against UM weren’t fantastic (6-3 and 9-2….both awful losses). So I paid my $9 for the ticket and went in not expecting a win.

Lets talk about this amazing win.

Tensions were pretty high when the two teams were tied after the 3rd period ended. While we waited for overtime to begin, I looked up OT rules for college hockey. 5 on 5 sudden death, and if they’re STILL tied, it went into a shoot out.


We somehow pulled off a goal and won in OT! And the place. went. wild. There are few things more exhilarating and exciting than the crazy explosion of a hockey goal, especially if it’s for you’re team of choice.

And it won’t hurt to say that we beat them in basketball the very next day.

And it also won’t hurt to leave out that the UM hockey team beat us 4-1 the very next day…


Go Green!



The Syllabus

Lets talk about how important that little slip of paper you receive during your first class is. It gives you emails you can find online, names you can find online, rules the professor probably will stop enforcing after the first week, and an attendance policy you’ll commit to memory and eventually throw out the window in the middle of the semester. So…what’s so important about this anyways?

Tuesday, I sat in my Popular Literature class that is completely centered around crime and detective stories/novels. We were an hour into this 2 hour lecture and all I could think was “oh my god I can’t feel my butt can anyone else not feel their butt!?” and “wow my professor looks like he could be an evil villain.”  All of a sudden the professor mentions a test on Thursday.

A what?

A test?

What could that possibly be on!?!

The Circular Staircase. One of our assigned books. Well. No one really knew it was assigned. As the class exchanged confused, worried, terrified looks, our professor informed us that it was in our syllabus to start this book. Oops.

As I procrastinate reading the remaining 100 pages of the books, I would like to offer up a valuable lesson (or something to laugh at me for!) to any fellow college students reading this.
