Jalen Hurts, Thanks For All Your Time Playing For The Tide

We will miss you!

Dear Jalen,

We wish you the best at Oklahoma. We hope you thrive and become the best quarterback ever to play. Most importantly, we will miss you playing for Alabama.

You taught all of us how to be humble. Words cannot express how thankful we are for that. As you continue your college career on and off the field at Oklahoma, we will cheer for you. We will support you.

You are talented far beyond words. We watched you earn the starting quarterback job back in the 2016 season. Might I add, as a true freshman. The first true freshman to start at quarterback in 32 years. Your stats were phenomenal. You quickly stole the hearts of Alabama fans all over the nation. That same year, you lead your team to win the SEC Championship against Florida. Then, led us to the National Championship game against Clemson. Although Bama didn't win, you kept your head held high.

Your sophomore year was just as great as the previous one. Once again, you lead us to the playoffs. The team went on to defeat Clemson in the Sugar Bowl and played for the National Title against Georgia. Your leadership and determination is what lead the team to the National Championship. Instead of being discouraged by the loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl, you used it as a way to learn. That's something we all need to do.

In the 2018 SEC Championship game, you relived Tua, who got injured. Then, you lead the team to a comeback victory. That victory made the team 13-0. The team went on to the playoffs and unfortunately lost to Clemson in the National Championship.

Jalen, we will miss seeing you in crimson and white. We'll miss seeing you in the number 2 jersey on Saturdays.

You are a role model for all of us. You have taught us so many things since you began your college career at Alabama. We cannot thank you enough for that.

We will miss you Jalen, but we will always cheer for you.

Best wishes,

Alabama fans

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.
