Stop Glorifying Tiger Woods Just Because He Made A Comeback

Do not forget what happened in 2009.


So the Masters Tournament was this past weekend, and the only person I did not want to win, won.

In late 2009, it came out that Tiger Woods was involved in a cheating scandal. He cheated on his wife with more than a dozen women. I, for one, am not okay with that, and I will never be okay with it.

20% of men and 13% of women admit to cheating. Why are those numbers not 0%? Why is it so hard to tell your significant other that you just are not happy or fulfilled with the relationship. That is way better than going behind their back.

But Tiger Woods is different, right? I mean, he almost did not even come back to the game of golf because of his back injury. But he did make a comeback. He won the Masters Tournament, and no one seems to remember the disrespect he showed to many women, including his ex-wife.

I saw on social media that so many celebrities were congratulating Woods on his achievement. These are the same celebrities that reprimanded President Trump for speaking disrespectfully about women. Now, I am in no way standing up for President Trump, but Tiger Woods has shown some of the same actions, and people seem to have forgotten that.

Tiger Woods is looked up to by so many young kids. But I can only ask, why is he looked at as a role model if he shows no respect and has committed such selfish acts? There are so many more people that young golf fans should look up to whose names are not Tiger Woods.

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.
