LeBron James is in his 14th NBA season and he has already solidified himself as an all-time great in NBA history with tremendous seasons and memorable moments. There are so many moments to pick from James’ career as his career defining moment.

His former teammate and best friend, Dwyane Wade, said that James’ comeback to win the NBA Finals and bring a title to Cleveland was his defining moment. “In the Finals, not having home court advantage… it was special,” Wade said. “I think that moment right there really put him where he probably wanted to be, where everybody thought he was going to be one day when he was deemed the Chosen One.”

Wade’s comments spark up the question, what’s James’ career defining moment?

Was it in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals? James dropped 48 points with 25 of them being the final 29 points for the Cavaliers in what Steve Kerr who was commentating the game, called it a, “Jordan Esque,” performance.

Was it Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals? James was on the brink of elimination again, and was being heavily criticized for not being able to win a championship. He went into Boston, scored 45 points, grabbed 15 rebounds to win game 6 and went on to win game 7 for the Miami Heat on his way to his first championship.

How about Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals when James scored 37 points and winning back to back titles in Miami?

Or is Wade right and James’ performance in his 3-1 comeback on the 73-9 Golden State Warriors to bring the first professional championship to Cleveland in over 50 years was his defining moment?

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.
