Take Me On Home

Roll Tide.

Take Me On Home

There's no place like home they say. Well, at least in "The Wizard of Oz."

Well for me my last three years I have built thee University of Alabama into a place I call home. I could never imagine choosing any other school to call my home because once you have gone there I don't think I could ever call somewhere like that home.

As I go into my senior year and start deciding what to do next, whether it will be graduate school or studying for the LSAT and pursuing law school, I know I want to have this school as an option for me. Alabama has developed me into the person I am and has given me many of my lifetime friends that I know I will have for a long time.

So, I want to say thank you for all the professors that have taken their time to patiently wait for me to develop into the writer I decided to become. Thank you Delta Zeta for giving me the best sorority family I could ask for as well as the best pledge class sisters a girl could ask for. Thank you also for giving me, a sports journalist, the best coach — Nick Saban — to watch all throughout college.

I can truly say that I have changed over the past three years at this school. I have seen what I like and don't like about me. I have seen me through my best and worst and my true friends have stuck by side no matter what I was doing. Fair weathered friends come and go but the ones that stick by your side while you are still trying to figure out who you are, well those are the real ones.

Some people leave college not quite finding who they are and who they want to become but a lot of people also become successful with the right mentors and professors helping with guiding their students.

This school will always be home and who knows ... they may be stuck with me for one more year after. Roll tide roll tide.

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.
