Dear Russell Westbrook,


Dear Russell Westbrook,
The Oklahoman

Dear "The Brody,"

So let's get down to it- the Thunder's season isn't ideal this year. Injury after injury has plagued the team and the obvious news from this summer looms over Oklahoma City like a storm cell (pun intended).

You, however, have kept the faith.

Fans still pour into the 'Peake to witness the heart and soul that you and your teammates lay out on the floor every night. Millions across the globe tune in to make sure they don't miss out on the history you're making, and sports analysts can't get enough of the get-out responses you give to the media.

If my sources are correct (see "Google"), your triple-double count has reached 24. The closest number to you at the moment is James Harden's 14.

Yours is the fifth-most sought after NBA jersey in the nation, but I'd wager that it's by far the highest-selling jersey out of all teams in Oklahoma itself.

The fan base has adopted your me-against-the-world mentality. When somebody wrongs one person in the Thunder community- players, coaches, fans- they wrong the whole dang village. That comes with the small-town feel that which Oklahomans are so familiar and the sometimes overwhelming love that we show you and your teammates.

I think I speak for all of us when I ask you to never grow bored of us.

You are our golden child- our prized possession. You motor the whole city! Without the Thunder organization, Oklahoma City would still be the same five-street cow town that we knew 15 years ago.

We will always be here to root for you.

Please, never grow weary of Oklahoma City.

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.
