this past year of my life has been the most transforming period of my life and i am realizing alot about myself. Furthermore the moral quandary i am speaking about today is following your heart. At this period of my life i am a sophomore at The Ohio State University, aerospace engineering major.
I have been a Michigan football fan my entire life, born and raised. My dad went to the school, my entire family is from michigan and i went to many games throughout my lifetime – maybe about 10. At my first michigan game i watched the team come in and i fell in love with the atmosphere, the colors, the fight song, everything there is to love about wolverine football. So michigan is placed deep in my heart- i will always love the school because it was my first love. However after high school i wanted to become an engineer and by circumstance i attended THE ohio state university – if you dont know they are devious rivals with michigan. Now i still love michigan football with all my heart, but after my freshmen year of college i really want to dive into the culture of ohio state football since they are so damn good. I do have feelings for the buckeyes but its not the same deep love that i feel for michigan, but everyone sees me as crazy for going to my beloved team’s rival – like a traitor. However i am only here at osu for the education, it was the cheapest and best school for my major.
So, my question is should i live up the rest of my 3 years at ohio state and become a buckeye fan, or should i man up and be the outcast who is still a michigan fan at heart. I am really freaking out because of this mistake i made and now i am living among these people who think completely opposite of me, but i must live through it. (I still will have friends there with whatever team i choose). But this is important because michigan plays at ohio state this year and i will be going to THE game with my family. Please give me your opinion.
