How Sports Have Impacted Me

Sports are a big part of my life and I want to make a career out of sports because they mean so much to me for many reasons.

How Sports Have Impacted Me

I remember being a kid watching football and basketball. As I got older I began watching college and professionals sports. I used to go to plenty of high school games of all kinds just because I have a love watching people put on a show with their amazing talent. I love the competitive aspect of al sports and the will to go to any measure to win.

I have always been a guy that says to never give up in any activity you do because that reflects who you are and you should always give your best effort. Sports have always been a big part of my life and any time I played on a team, I made sure to be the best version of myself for my teammates, but most importantly myself. However, I do not see myself as a talented athlete to be a professional, but being around sports is a must for me.

Playing sports for teams or just for fun has always made my life better. They make me happy because I enjoy playing them, but I also enjoy performing well and contributing. I feel playing sports with friends or teammates has taught me how to work together with others and come together as a group to win. It teaches you that you should have each other back and never feel alone when playing. I feel sports bring people together and make them prepare for future endeavors.

I decided I wanted to become a sports journalist because I would get paid to do something I love because happiness is the key. Watching sports always helps cheer me up when I'm sad, because I just love the entertainment factor and the unique stories that each player carries with them. I am not sure what sport I want to cover or where I want to work, but I do know that traveling around the world to cover sports games and events is a dream. Being able to meet so many players and fans would be a big part of the journey and make it all the more worth it when I hear their stories.

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.

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.
