According to For the Win by USA Today the Alabama-LSU game is more than just a college football game. On election years, since 1984, the winner of the game predicts the outcome of the presidential election. If LSU wins, then a Republican will be in the White House and if Alabama wins, then a Democrat will be President.

1984: LSU 16 - Alabama 14, Ronald Reagan (R)

1988: LSU 19 - Alabama 18, George H.W. Bush (R)

1992: Alabama 31 - LSU 11, Bill Clinton (D)

1996: Alabama 26 - LSU 0, Bill Clinton (D)

2000: LSU 30 - Alabama 28, George W. Bush (R)

2004: LSU 26 - Alabama 10, George W. Bush (R)

2008: Alabama 27 - LSU 21, Barack Obama (D)

2012: Alabama 21 - LSU 17, Barack Obama (D)

This trend is very interesting because Alabama has gone red in every single election the game has decided even the years that Democrats won. LSU has also gone red every year except for 1992 and 1996. This year Alabama won, 10-0, over LSU. So, will Hillary Clinton win the presidency? Or will Donald Trump win, throwing off the 32-year trend? Go out and vote and we shall see.

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.

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.
