“Used to be a Gurley Girl…now I’m a Chubby Girl.”

34 – 0, Dawgs win!

I never really had much interest in college football until this year. But I’ve found it to be an exciting way to have fun and let loose, and I think it really is a great part of the college experience – especially since we have a top 25 team! ūüėČ I finally have something to talk about with 99% of my fellow bulldogs!

It reinforces something that I’ve been thinking about for a while. I used to not¬†understand football, and therefore it was no fun and I never wanted to watch it. Then, I put a little effort into understanding the basic rules, and found other people who love the game and were¬†willing to explain it to me. After putting that little bit of effort in, it has become fun to watch!

I think this applies to many other areas of life, and the whole idea that “everyone starts somewhere.” There’s a learning curve to everything, and with a little bit of effort (sometimes, a lotta bit of effort!), anyone can enjoy and learn about anything.¬†Of course, I’m very fortunate to have the perfect environment in which to learn!

Another pertinent life lesson: team effort. I was freaking out about not having Gurley, but I think it was GREAT for me to see that one member of a team is not the end all be all. I think I was worried about team morale, especially since this was an away game. But man…so proud :’)
