Here's Why I Hate That I'm Enjoying The Sixers Playoff Series

I'm not too keen on Philadelphia sports, but I can't stop watching the 76ers.

This may be a dangerous and bold statement, being that I live in the Philly area, but I'll say it anyway. I can't stop following the Philadelphia 76ers, and I HATE it. I come from a family who supports New York sports and New York sports only, so I may have just become the family's biggest disappointment.

Philly sports go against everything I believe in. The fans are obnoxious, and New York is often a rival of them. When I went to school at West Chester University I was overwhelmed with all of the Philly fans, and was not very happy. During the past three years Villanova won two College Basketball Championships, and the Eagles won the Super Bowl (which they still haven't let us forget). So, I've been even more annoyed with this large fanbase than I already was.

Recently, however, the 76ers have really captivated me. I'm a huge College Basketball fan, but I've never been big into the NBA. I follow the bare-minimum because think it's overrated, so I've never had a team to obsess over. But, this year it has certainly changed.

The Sixers have really made their mark in the NBA this season. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have played incredibly, and posed a threat to every team. Their athleticism and intelligence while playing the game of basketball in unreal, which has, unfortunately completely lured me onto the Sixers bandwagon.

I've never been one to hop on the bandwagon, but I just can't help myself. The playoffs, which started on Saturday, April 14, really excited me, and I. Can't. Stand. It. They couldn't be stopped in game one, and dominated the Heat for most of the game, coming on top in the end. The second game, however did not play in the favor of the Sixers, but they still kept it close and made things interesting.

The rest of the series, and hopefully, the rest of the playoffs should be an exciting time for Philadelphia and their fans. I never thought these words would leave my mouth, but I can't wait to follow the Sixers on their playoff journey.

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.

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.
