To The NCAA Athletes Getting Another Year Of Eligibility

Your time was cut short, and the NCAA is sorry about that.

To The NCAA Athletes Getting Another Year Of Eligibility

Spring sports are probably the one thing that everyone looks forward to once college football season is over, and not being able to have that is not only upsetting to those who watch, but also upsetting to the athletes.

At the beginning of every school year these athletes start training for their sport in hopes to absolutely crush their season when the time comes. But this year they couldn't because of the COVID-19 virus.

Being someone who loves spring sports, especially basketball, baseball and lacrosse, I couldn't help but feel sad for all of these athletes who had their season cut short. Many of my friends who are athletes at their universities have expressed how upset they are because of this.

When the virus started to impact NCAA sports, no one was quite sure what was going to happen, if all sports were going to be canceled or if they would be played without crowds of people.

Then, the NCAA made an announcement telling everyone that all sporting events would be suspended until further notice. Flash forward about a week or so, the NCAA put out another statement saying that every season is canceled for the rest of the year, which really put a hurt on all of March Madness and College World Series fans.

What are were we supposed to do the whole month of March? Not watch basketball?! And now what happens when June comes around and the College World Series won't be on TV?

I won't be able to scream at my tv after a crazy play or an insane home run.

At that moment everyone felt the pain of those athletes. Trust me when I say this, you all are not alone.

Even though us non-athletes may not fully understand how you're feeling, we understand that it feels like all of the hard work you've put in has been thrown away.

When the NCAA put out that they would be giving all Spring athletes another year of eligibility, things got a little better, and it seemed like things were starting to look up.

Although it may not be the most ideal situation for some, at least they're getting this season back.

Keep your head up, guys.

This may be a hard time for you guys, and you may feel like you've wasted your time, but there's a bigger meaning behind all of this. You all may not know it now, but you'll find that meaning one way or another.

Keep your head up, and keep pushing through.

Everyone is rooting for you guys, and we know that your next season will be something special. We feel you, we hear you and we see you.

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.
