Doug Jones Wins In Alabama As The Crimson Tide Earns My Support In The Playoffs

The politics panned out, so now they've got college football to worry about.

Doug Jones Wins In Alabama As The Crimson Tide Earns My Support In The Playoffs

Yep, I'm mixing sports and politics again, which is the golden sin. But something incredible happened on December the 12th that I must write about.

Doug Jones defeated Roy Moore to be the first Democrat elected in Alabama in over a quarter-century. Millions of people chose country over party. They said no to a man who has never understand the meaning of no...if you get what I mean.

Alabama football has been the perennial power in college football in today's era. Their dominance has been incredible. People, including myself, find themselves sick of winning. Their fanbase has been seen as arrogant by many people who root for teams other than Alabama. That is other people's view, not mine, so don't shoot the messenger. I would be arrogant too if my team won like that.

Alabama fans see their coach, Nick Saban, as a god, and this is in the Bible-belt. What is not being talked about is that Alabama fans are the ones who put Roy Moore, the Alabama Democrat, in office over Republican Roy Moore. Jones even got 60% of the vote in Tuscaloosa County, where the University of Alabama is located.

After weeks of thinking I'd pull for Clemson to win one in the College Football Playoff Semifinal for the ACC by beating Bama, the state of Alabama did the right thing by putting Moore in office and I believe the Crimson Tide has also earned my support.

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.
