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...

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.
