Analyzing LeBron’s Next Chapter

The Golden State Warriors quickly swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals. The Cavs didn't win any of the games, and the Warrior came up on top with 4 wins in a row. Now that the 2018 NBA Finals are over, everyone's next question is "Where will LeBron go next?"

There has been a lot of speculation as to what team LeBron James will go to next. All of my friends who are basketball fans seem to be convinced that he is going to whatever team is their favorite team. My friend J, tells all of my friends every other day that LeBron James is going to go to his team, the Atlanta Hawks. Sorry J, that's probably not going to happen. Although LeBron James has not confirmed nor really commented on what his next move and team will be, sports analysts and fans have a couple of teams in mind that they really think he will consider going to.

The first team is the Los Angeles Lakers. Many people are speculating that this will be the most likely option for LeBron James for multiple reason. The main reason is because his son is reportedly committed to playing basketball at a high school in Los Angeles. This would definitely be a deciding factor in where James ends up because he has stated in the past that he would like to focus on what would be beneficial to his family now, and I think that would include relocating to Los Angeles to help his son fulfill his dream of making it to the NBA. Reports also say that James is has many connections in L.A. for his other business ventures, that could help him with his future career moves. Not to mention, he has the ability to create a new super team with players of his choosing, if the Lakers let go of some of their current players to allow a bigger cap size for new players.

Another team that LeBron James might go to is the Philadelphia 76ers. Joel Embiid, arguably the 76ers best players, tweeted at LeBron James "Trust The Process!!!! Find a new slant @KingJames". It's safe to say that he is obviously encouraging James to join the team, which would make them a definite contender for the 2019 NBA Finals. LeBron James is also close with the Fresh Prince, Ben Simmons who is a rookie on the 76ers. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid and LeBron James on one team would make the 76ers a force to be reckoned with.

Fans are also speculating that James will go to the Houston Rockets next season. While on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Chris Bosh – 11-time All-star, future Hall of Famer, and Miami Heat player – stated that "[he] would guess LeBron goes to Houston". If he goes to Houston, the Rockets would be almost guaranteed to make it to the Finals with a superstar roster – Chris Paul, James Harden, and LeBron James.

I'm hoping that he goes to the 76ers because they are a young team that needs one superstar player to help them develop and advance next season. No one will know though, until James makes his final decision in July.

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.
