In just 7 days teams and players will start their 162 day journey in an attempt to make the playoffs and a chance to play in the World Series. If you're like me, you haven't been able to stay away from baseball and you've been keeping up with your team and other teams in the off season. It's time to see which team did the most this post-season in preparation for the regular season. The best season of the year is just about to get underway and before the first pitch is thrown I'm going to convince you why baseball season is the best.

1. Baseball pants exists.

I mean, come on. You have to know that this draws some people into watching the game.

2. Baseball games are exciting.

Yes, there are nine innings and watching that can be boring, but you never know what's going to happen. Coaches or players can be ejected from the game. Maybe someone hits a walk off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning. Or maybe you catch the foul ball hit by your favorite player. Regardless, so much can happen throughout the duration of the game which makes it exciting to watch.

3. There is nothing like eating a hot dog made in a baseball stadium.

Hot dogs made in the ball parks are exceptional (unless you don't like hot dogs). Years of hot dogs have been made on the same grill which makes it that much better. Obviously, the grills are cleaned but you can never replicate the taste when you're grilling hot dogs at home. It just isn't the same.

4. The players.

Just like the baseball pants, the players themselves just draw some people into the game. I mean have you seen Kris Bryant lately?

5. The atmosphere in the stadium.

There isn't anything better than the electric feeling of the fans coming together to root for the same team. Whether your team is up by 10 or they need 3 more runs in the bottom of the 9th, the cheering and electricity in the stadium is contagious.

6. The World Series.

The ultimate goal for any team. Whether your team makes the series or not, baseball fans come together to root on someone to win. The series is the most thrilling time of the season, and while it means baseball season is ending, fans know that in three and a half short months spring training will arrive and baseball season starts all over again.

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.
