I Am Tired Of Hearing About Bryce Harper, And You Should Be Too

Just sign a contract with someone, please


If you have been paying attention to the baseball world recently, you probably have heard of the name "Bryce Harper" in recent news. Bryce Harper was an outfielder for the Washington Nationals, and is the reigning Home Run Derby champion. But, he is now a free agent. Free agent basically means a bunch of teams offer players money and a spot on their team for a certain amount of years, and the player gets to choose which team's offer he likes most.

The team that has shown interest in Harper include, but are not limited to, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Washington Nationals, the San Fransisco Giants, and the Philadelphia Phillies. Though, probably a majority of the 30 major league baseball teams are interested in signing him just without being so vocal about it. But, he has gotten so many offers from so many amazing teams, so it does not make sense as to why he is waiting so long to make a decision.

Well, baseball fans have been waiting for his decision since the season ended, and it is now spring training time, and Harper, as of February 20, 2019, at 11:17 AM, has yet to sign with a team. Now, to me, this has been dragging out for what seems like forever, even though it has only been a couple of months. Months of hearing rumors about where he is going, and what team offered him a historical contract. This stretch of Harper not being affiliated with any major league team has been exhausting. I am sick of his waiting around just to make the situation a big ordeal.

Up until February 19, 2019, Harper had a free agent buddy, Manny Machado. Machado just signed a ten-year contract for $300 million with the San Diego Padres, something nobody saw coming. So, could Harper follow in Machado's steps and sign with an underdog team? My guess is that he will not unless it is a contract similar to Machado's. Other than that, the goal of any baseball player is to win the World Series one day, and Harper will most likely sign his contract with a team that is close to doing so.

This is how he feels when he sees people complaining about how he is taking too long.

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.
