The Year of the Tiger

So, this year is the Year of the Tiger! Pretty fitting for a group of people that loves Auburn A. WHOLE. LOT. Don't ya think? We have done a few things to make living over here somewhat feel like home.

For instance, we have named several establishments around the city after our beloved Auburn.

The restaurant closest to our apartments is now lovingly known as "Momma G's."

We go to class in the "Haley Center"--a huge building that anyone could easily get lost in.

The bus system we take has been referred to as the "Tiger Transit," although you can't track it online unfortunately.

Gamedays are really bittersweet for us here. It's so fun to be together watching our team from across the world, but at the same time it is sad to be so far removed. The last couple of games, we all rolled out of bed around 6:30 or 7:00 Sunday morning to watch kick-off. Hot dogs, hamburgers, and chips have been replaced with biscuits, waffles, and bacon. Orange and blue dresses and polo shirts have been replaced with orange and blue pajamas. It is quite a sight to behold!

No matter how far away we may be, we believe in Auburn and LOVE it!

"To me Auburn is not in Auburn, Alabama. Auburn is the people who care about Auburn, the people who love Auburn. Wherever they are, that’s Auburn. Auburn is in your heart."
