15 Reasons Why I Love Baseball

It's America's past time, what's not to love?

15 Reasons Why I Love Baseball

Baseball. America's past time. Baseball is the definition of the American community. The sport, from the Little League level to the Major League's brings so many incredible things about this amazing sport.

1. Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks.

The food is one of the best things to enjoy at a baseball game. Hotdogs, popcorn, cotton candy, peanuts, and cracker jacks. Yum yum yum!

2. At bat warm-up songs.

This is the time when you get to hear what the players' top songs are on their playlists. It also provides great mini-dances with your friends in the seats before the player is up to bat.

3. Perfect games.

There is a certain beauty in the accomplishment of completing a no-hitter. Even if the pitcher is of the opposing team, being able to see a moment like that is memorable.

4. Home runs.

The beauty, the form, the swing, the distance.

5. The decisive calls.

One bad call, the game can totally change. Also, throwback to this horrible call against the Red Sox in the World Series Game 3 against the Cardinals, where the Cardinals won the game on a wrong "obstruction" call. #stillbitter But at least the Red Sox still won the championship that year despite this call.

6. The crazy umpires.

We all hate the umps. The second you see a bad umpire on the list for the game, you already start blaming the loss on the umpire. Also check out this great 10 minute video on some of the worst calls in history.

7. The high-fives all around.

You may not personally know the fans that are sitting behind or in front of you, but you will by the end of the game.

8. 3-2 count.

You hold your breath the entire time and can only take a breath when the player continues to hit fouls.

9. The signs.

They're funny, they're rude, they're sweet. If you have free time, look at the top 100 best fan signs here.

10. The long season filled with great fans.

It's a wonderful sport that you can enjoy for half the year.

11. The dedication.

They'll run into the stands to get that catch.

12. The catches.

I think baseball players have super powers and so do the fans.

14. The cheering. Especially at the World Series Championship game.

The cheers mixed with tears after the biggest game of the season are the moments you'll remember forever.

15. Most importantly, the pants.

Thank God for those tight pants.

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.
