15 Thoughts I Had While Watching The Olympics
Daily Mail

Now that the Olympics are over, the buzz is slowly dying. Pretty soon we will be focused on football season. While we move on to other sporting events, none have quite the hype of the Olympics. Those who love sports and those who hate them tune in to see each country represented in the Olympics by the greatest athletes in history. You have your favorite athlete, favorite sport and of course, favorite country. Mine were Simone Biles, Volleyball, and USA, of course. While watching the events, I had all kinds of thoughts, like "Why is Simone Biles so darn cute?" Here are 15 of my thoughts I has while watching the Olympics:

1. "Why in the world did I quit (certain sport)? I could be an Olympic gold medalist."

Gymnastics was my certain sport. I could just see me tumbling on the floor and flipping over the balance beam. In reality, I would have landed on my head while tumbling and probably would have broken a bone (or several) on the balance beam. Gymnastics wasn't my strong suit, it is probably best I leave it to a professional.

2. "Wow. Are they human?"

There is no way a body can just move like that and not break. I mean, mine would.

3. "What does Michael Phelps do with all those medals? Does he just wear them around the house all the time?"

*Postman comes to the door* *Phelps answers wearing all of his medals*

4. "Who would win a race, Bolt or a cheetah?"

Bolt, definitely.

5. "Of course he is the fastest man in the world, with a last name like Bolt it comes with the title."

Like did his family change their name when they saw him run or did his last name just inspire him?

6. "Is he really that fast, or is that just my HDTV enhancing him?"

He must be a robot. (see #2)

7. "How do they flip on a balance beam and still land on it?"

It is like they have a magnet that attracts them to the beam. My magnet is attracted to the floor.

8. "What does a gold medal taste like?"

They keep biting it and I just want to know.

9. "What could I win a gold medal in?"

Fencing? Rifle? Binge-watching? I'll go with Netflix.

10. "What in the world do they eat for breakfast?"

It can't be the cereal they are on because I eat that and have not seen a change in my abilities.

11. "I think I could do that trick. (Tries and completely fails) Never mind that."

Reason I am covered in bruises.

12. "Shoutout to the people competing against Phelps/Bolt, I would have given up with that name beside me."

Well, I would never be competing against them in the first place.

13. "How does one find/meet an Olympic athlete? Are they always at the gym?"

*buys a gym membership*

14. "When they fill out a resume (if they even have to do that) do they nonchalantly fill out they have so many gold medals and so may titles?"

I think I would automatically give them a job.

15. "Since the USA won all these medals, does that mean I have a higher chance of becoming an Olympian?"

I think there must be something in our water, but where can I find this water????

GO USA!!!!!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
