NBA Return Status
Start writing a post

It's pretty well-known that the NBA season has been called off due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, however, people are already looking into how to safely resume the games in order to provide others with enjoyment during this time.

Unfortunately, prospects aren't good for this 8 billion dollar industry, who says that even in the unlikely incident that the games do resume, they will have to take place much after June. Major league events would most likely be canceled and could result in fewer games being played in order to make sure that 2020-2021 isn't also pushed back farther. This sets up a new host of problems, mainly with the lack of practice times in-between seasons. Multiple ideas are being thrown around by officials, ranging from spectator free arenas to full-on changing the time that the seasons start to Christmas.

Of course, the main risk remains the same regardless. The close proximity of people should the games resume. It's not just the 17 players, it's the coaches, the trainers, the nutritionists, the helpers, and many more people working together to keep the machine running at its best capacity. Then on top of that, there are 30 teams. If a single person in the massive business has the virus, it can spread like wildfire, essentially taking out all the teams.

Hopefully, the season can resume when it is safe to do so, and everyone can resume enjoying one of the most popular sports in the United States, and although an official cancellation hasn't been called by the executives, it wouldn't help to get your hopes up about the return of the season this year.

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.
