16 Most Memorable Moments At The 2016 Figure Skating Nationals

The 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Championships were filled with laughter, tears, great programs and some really unique costumes. Figure skating wouldn't be interesting without the creative programs and great facial reactions from the skaters. Here are the 16 best moments at the U.S. Nationals this year, ranging from the good to the bad to the ugly.

1. Tarah Kayne's face when she realized she skated clean.

So adorable.

2. When Tarah Kayne and Danny O'Shea won the pairs event.

3. Gracie Gold's reaction to her gold medal.

Gold grabs the gold.

4. Ashley Wagner pretending to be fine with popping a jump.

Girl, point to yourself. You popped that jump, not your coach.

5. The purple jumpsuits.

There's always that one.

6. This dress that didn't match the music but reminded you of Tonya Harding's homemade dress.

Surely this is not what Sara Bareilles had in mind when she wrote "Gravity."

7. Polina Edmunds' flawless short program.

Now if only she would get rid of those braces.

8. When Polina skated with her hair down for her long.

Let's not forget the green bows either.

9. Adam Rippon's dramatic short program ending.

He's such a beautiful drama queen.

10. Max Aaron finally wearing a shirt that doesn't cut off his circulation.

Next goal: buy some pants that actually fit.

11. Ross Miner's beautiful "New York State of Mind" short program.

Watch it, because you will fall in love.

12. When someone finally landed the side-by-side triple salchow in the short program.

13. Max Aaron's quad-triple combination in the short.

14. The insurmountable amount of deep V-necks.

You know it's bad when his cleavage is showing.

15. When Nathan Chen casually landed four quads in his long.

16. When Adam Rippon won.

See you in Boston, hometown hero.

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.

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.
