Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Softball is typically an underestimated sport. However, anyone who's played it clearly knows the overwhelming amount of problems and issues they experience daily. Between deathly bruises, and cuts that cover your entire leg, here are some major softball probs...

1. Being told your arm's huge (usually the phrase "for a girl" is added also)

2. When spring has just begun and you're playing catch in 30 degree weather...

3. When a softball taps you, and you somehow end up with a ginormous bruise.

4. When your coach tells you to dive...

5. Hearing people say "softball is so boring to watch, it's too slow!"

6. When it's five-hundred degrees and you're running laps for dropping the ball

7. When your coach wants you to play pepper for an entire hour

8. Imagine someone being unlucky enough to pop up with 2 outs...HAHA

9. Raspberry cuts (ugh, the pain!)

10. Line drives.

11. The way a boy looks at you when you say you like baseball and can actually give him the coach's son's middle name

12. When your teammates' parents try to give you advice after a game?

13. That feeling when the other team steps off the bus and all you can think is steroids

14. Trying to put that braid in your hair but realizing it was a mistake after the first time you take off your helmet.

15. Have you ever struck out looking? Why of course you have!

16. Oh, what's that? I'm running a lap for it next practice? Fantastic!

17. Sliding into a base and then being stuck with a gallon of dirt in your sock.

18. When you have the most perfect hit....right to someone

19. Carrying equipment *rolls eyes*

20. The panic you feel when you realize you're up next and you can't find your batting gloves for the fifth time today

21. Knowing no matter what, you're hooked on this game for the rest of your life. Good luck...

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
