A Letter To My Teammates

Now is our chance to take the world by storm

A Letter To My Teammates
Ashley Carlson

To my inspiring teammates,

Each practice I am surrounded by incredible and dedicated athletes. This is how we all started, simply as 20 individual athletes. Each of us had the same goal in mind, all hoping to achieve greatness in our upcoming season. Since the beginning, we have transformed from a group of strangers, and into a team of tight knit friends.

We are there for each other. Through the high's and low's, the win's and the losses. As one, we make it though double program run throughs and late night intervals. You push me to be the best athlete and student I could possibly be. You motivate me to keep going, especially on the days where it doesn't seem easy. We support each other both on the ice and in life. I don't know who else I could go to for help with boys or tips on how to survive a certain class.

Thank you for making sure I was up at 5am for our early morning practices. Having all of you by my side make the hours fly by. You are the people who support me through any injury, through the loss of a friend or just needing someone to get spotted cow ice cream with.

We are at that point where we are pushing each other to be the best possible athletes and people we know to be. Together our bond has made us a stronger team, to better accomplish what used to seem impossible as individuals.

This is our year. We have gone from being the underdog to a top national contender. We have worked our butts off each day at practice, and we are ready. Now is our time to take the world by storm and show everyone what we are made of.

Thank you for always giving your all and being the best teammates and friends anyone could ask for.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
