Dear LeBron

You are the greatest player in the world.

Dear LeBron

Dear LeBron,

As I sit here and watch you and the Cavaliers compete against the New Orleans Hornets, I reminisce about the many ways in which you have revolutionized the game of basketball. It's true: you are the greatest player in the world.

You have found many ways to persevere through the incredible hype and criticism since you were in junior high — and with no end in sight to your basketball dominance, here's me trying to put in words just how legendary you have become. Hopefully, throughout this letter I can get others to feel the same way as I do.

"I feel confident because I'm the greatest player in the world" - LeBron James

One of the hardest things I face as a fan of yours is getting people to understand what an incredible, unselfish player you are. Beginning with the unprecedented high school coverage; you attracted attention that no other high school player has ever received. By your senior year, most of your basketball games were televised by ESPN, and you managed to land a spot on an issue of "Sports Illustrated."

In the 2003 NBA Draft, you were selected first overall. Analysts around the league agreed that you had a phenomenal first season, naming you rookie of the year. Unfortunately, with success comes unnecessary hatred from fans who don't recognize unbelievable basketball talent when they see it. However, excessive amounts criticism never stopped you.

1. You are a two-time NBA Champion.

2. You are a four-time NBS MVP.

3. You are an 11-time NBA All-Star.

4. You have two Olympic gold medals.

5. You are a triple-double machine.

Please don't ever change your game and always remember who you are.

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.
