To The 2018 Michigan Football Season: Thank You, Next

I cannot believe I am writing this today, November 24th, 2018. I was hoping I would be writing about the Michigan Football team sometime later in January, but life never works as planned, am I right?

Anyways, the season Michigan football team had, was utterly amazing, going on a ten game winning streak after a first-week loss to Notre Dame, trying to complete what we Michigan fans called the "Revenge Tour 2018." Having what was recognized as the number one defense in the country as of November 23rd. But we reached our breaking point, sitting pretty and confident ranked at the number four spot going into game twelve, we met our rival, Ohio State, in their stomping grounds for once again, "The Game."

Here in Columbus, Ohio, we fell apart, defensively, offensively, you name it. Our defense was rocked and blown wide open and we could not complete passes. We lost 62-39. You have to give it to Ohio State, they showed up ready to play and win, and today was just not our day. Congratulations.

But with that said, we have to look at the positives for the future of the team from this game. Right? This game should be used as a building block for next season. With a returning lineup, for the most part, we can only improve. We had a 10 game winning streak, until this point, so we do have a strong lineup. It was just a bad day. This game should be looked back at, now and in the future, with pain, regret, and want for revenge. This type of defeat should never ever be allowed to happen again.

We can change our game plan next year. We can change our offensive tactics and defensive strategies. We can enact new plays. We can come back stronger and better than ever. There is more than enough room for improvement. In order to succeed, you need to fail, and this is indeed this Michigan football team's failure. But we are not done. We are done for our run for this 2018 season, but not done as a football program. We will say "Thank you, next" to this past season, and look forward to next year's fruitful season. Do not count out the Wolverines.

We are the leaders and the best. We are the champions of the West. We hail to Michigan.

See you next year in the Big Ten Championship and National Championship. And of course, the Big House for our revenge to Ohio State in "The Game." Next year will be the year for Michigan.

As always, GO BLUE.

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.
