A 'Thank You' To The Sport That Found Me

You made me who I am today.

A 'Thank You' To The Sport That Found Me
Karen McFarland

We all have that one sport that we couldn't imagine our lives without. That sport that motivates us to be the best we can be. That sport that forever changed our life for the better. So, to 'that' sport,...

Thank you for being what I never knew I needed.

Before you found me, I never knew all I was missing out on. Thank you for being everything I ever needed in a sport. Thank you for enriching my soul in so many different ways.

Thank you for being my passion in life.

You have given my life a new meaning. Each day, you give my life purpose in the way you inspire me to work hard to be the best I can possibly be. Thank you for driving me to always pursue my dreams. Thank you for being my biggest passion in my life.

Thank you for being my outlet.

No matter what was going on, I could always come to practice and forget about life for a little while. Thank you for always providing me with a home away from home.

Thank you for giving me my best friends.

Because of you, I now have lifelong friends who share my same passion. Thank you for bringing me so close to the greatest teammates and friends that I could have ever asked for.

Thank you for giving me a lifetime of memories.

I've had some of my greatest days at practices and games. Thank you for giving me some of the best experiences I will ever have. Thank you for all the countless, wonderful, and unforgettable memories we've shared throughout the years.

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.
