Fortnite: Battle Royale is a popular free game on the Xbox 1, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mobile. It is a player vs. player game styled like the Hunger Games where there can be only one winner.

There are also different modes where you can team up with other players to play in squads, which are four-people duos, and other limited time modes, like 20 vs. 20 or 50 vs. 50. This game is so cool, so you just got to give it a try if you have the opportunity to. Even though you may suck in the beginning, you have to remember everyone was bad when they first started.

It honestly is such an interesting game in which you can build, fight, and just straight up screw with people as long as you have the skills to pull it off. Here are some tips for kicking butt in Fortnite.

1. Don’t hide and hope you win by default.

This makes you look like such an idiot to everyone. Don’t hide in a stupid bush. Everyone can see you. You are not slick.

2. Figure out how to rearrange your inventory.

Make an order you can remember based on the type of gun. So, when you are in a fight, you know what to change to based on the situation. I personally have my Assault Rifles first, then a shotgun, then an explosive and, most importantly, shields or meds of some kind.

3. Learn how to build.

Fortnite is a building game, so make sure you know how to do it and how to do it quickly. The most important part, when in the middle of a fight, is to have the high ground, but it’s also important to not be too high so the enemy can’t shoot out your base and you have fall damage. Also, make sure you have enough resources to fight if you need to.

4. Learn how to fight.

It seems like something so trivial, but it really matters. Learn how to aim and how to use the various guns and explosives. Use the loading screen to run around and practice aiming a shooting from various angles, while running and while jumping. So, when a fight occurs, you are prepared and know how to fight them off.

5. Don’t land in the same place.

As good as it is to have a set route and know where all of the good loot is, it’s bad to get stuck in a rut and not know your way around the rest of the map. Try to rotate between five or so routes so you eventually know your way around.

6. Stay out of the storm.

Going for that extra kill may not be worth it if you have no meds to get you back up to perfect health. It might just end up getting both of you killed. Don't forget about the storm. You will die.

7. Watch and learn.

I suggest watching a few people play online on either YouTube or Twitch. My personal favorites are Ninja, Muselk, and Lachlan. These people know a lot about the game and also have a lot of fun playing it. A lot of them do challenges to keep it interesting, and a lot of them are into the funny kills.

8. Appreciate the memes.

If you see someone rocket riding or a group of 20 in different squads trying to cover the crater in Dusty Divot, appreciate it. As long as they are not trying to kill you, join in because, honestly, some of it is super cool.

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.
