PGA Lady Cardinals Softball

Dear Casey and the rest of the PGA Lady Cardinals,

First, I just want to say that second place isn’t too shabby. Wear your medals with pride, keep your heads up high, and remember you are second in the state. The competition was fierce, and you were not afraid. You used your nerves to your advantage, and you fought until the last out was made. Your bats were on fire, and your throws were on point. You did your best, and that is all anyone could ask of you. It is obvious that you played your hearts out and that you gave it your all. Your coaches, fans, and families are all proud of every single one of you! You showed everyone within the state what you girls can do, and no one will ever doubt your abilities again. You are the Class AAA Schuylkill County Champions, District 11 Champions, and the Pennsylvania State Championship Runner Up. Again, let me say that you are second place in the state!

Second, to the seniors, I know you may feel sad or disappointed that you did not win the State Championship, and that is okay. Although, along with those feelings, you should feel pride. The team would not have been able to accomplish as much as they did without your support and guidance. You helped every single underclassman grow and develop the skills necessary for the team to succeed. Your experience and leadership were a key component in the success of the team as a whole. So while it is okay to feel sad or disappointed remember to be happy and prideful because you were an integral part of the team that won second place in the state.

Finally, to my sister, you were only a sophomore, and you made varsity. You were only a sophomore, and you earned so many different titles including second place in the state. You should be proud of everything that you have accomplished. Throughout the season, you have hit a homerun, made the first out of the game, and even made the game-winning out. Please do not hang your head because what you and your team accomplished is something to be proud of forever. I know that we are all proud of you. I look forward to watching you play and earn even more medals these next two years, and I know you and your team will continue to prove that the PGA Lady Cardinals really is the best team!

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
