The Perfect Season: Patriots Or Panthers?

Will one team win it all, or both fall from glory?

The Perfect Season: Patriots Or Panthers?

The NFL set a record when there were six undefeated teams by the time week six came about. But the pack had to be thinned out. Now it’s week 11 out of 16 with only the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots. At this point, the question isn't in a playoff sport, but whether or not the season is perfect. A perfect regular season is nothing new for Tom Brady and the Patriots as they won all 16 games in 2007 as well as both of their playoff games only to fall to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl for a record of 18-1-0. The Patriots nearly lost to the Giants this year winning by one point, and if they can get past the Peyton Manning-less Denver Broncos they are one week closer to an undefeated season.

Now on the topic of the Panthers, Cam Newton has led the Panthers to victory in season filled with touchdown dances, with their closest win being a four point win over the Seattle Seahawks. The Panthers are a younger team that has been coming into its own since Newton arrived in 2011. With a tight defense and a well-oiled offense the team has earned its undefeated status, but the rest of the season won’t be easy with the Saints, Falcons, Giants and the Buccaneers all looking to end that streak.

There is an optimism in believing that both teams will make it to the Superbowl and the better team will be crowned, but in a year where undefeated streaks have reached an expiration date (the Undertaker, Ronda Rousey, and the four former undefeated teams from week six) we can only wait and see which one of the mighty fall first and who makes it all the way.

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.
