The Dawgs Celebrated A Little Too Early

Georgia seemed to forget the most important rule of basketball - there are two halves in the game.

The Dawgs Celebrated A Little Too Early

Growing up in Georgia, I was always surrounded by Georgia fans. I, however, always seemed to be the odd one out and never cheered for the Dawgs. I found myself falling in love with Kentucky and never looking back.

Last night, the two teams faced off in Athens, GA for Kentucky's first road game of conference play. The Cats were coming in with one thing on their mind. How will we defend Anthony Edwards? Edwards averages around 18.7 points a game while sitting at 6'5. He is Georgia's stud player, to say the least, and served as a threat to Kentucky last night. Ashton Hagans, a Georgia native who committed to originally play at UGA then recommitted and ultimately chose Kentucky is no stranger to the Bulldogs and they definitely didn't let him forget they had bad blood. Stegman was full off and booing when he had a chance to shoot or was at the line.

The first half was a little slow for our Wildcats. Struggling from outside the paint and from the free-throw line when half-time came the Bulldogs were up 6 and man... you would have thought Georgia had won the National Championship. Stegman completely erupted. I'm all for celebrating and supporting your team, but what the Bulldogs seemed to forget was, they had an entire second half to play.

Kentucky came out of that locker room hot. Playing like the team we all know and love and not only shooting the ball but making shots. Edwards told Maxey he was too small after scoring a layup, but the Wildcats came out and finished with a 78-69 win.

In basketball, it's all about finishing the game. The Bulldogs celebrated their half-time viceroy like the game was over, then came out after half-time and came up short compared to the Kentucky Wildcats who pulled it together and came out on top.

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.
