CSGO: Gambling sites are flourishing

When it comes to CSGO, yes eSports is a never-ending thrill for the community. One thing you should know, however, is that CSGO skin gambling is about to be bigger and better than ever.

Gumbo is the latest favourite character in Fortnite

Next on the agenda is the newfound love of many players within the Fortnite community. Gumbo is the newest member on the scene, with some players even purchasing 50-levels just to gain access to this special character in the game. Those who are taking accountability for the move will actually admit he was so worth it too. We have seen ninjas, superheroes and countless hybrids, yet there never has been a mashup of this character before. Gumbo is perfect, and if you are wanting a seasonal gift for yourself, this may be the one. Although it will set you back around $30 to do so, it is the season to treat yourself after all!

Halo Infinite is getting more playlists

For all the Halo Infinite players out there, this is your moment to rejoice. Not only is this the season for joy, but you will also be accommodated with some seriously good playlists from December 14th! This will include Slayer, Slayer Swat, Free-for-all and Fiesta. The biggest complaints from players were that since the launch of the game, there have not been enough playlists beyond the Quick Play available, meaning this will certainly be your 10-day early Christmas gift to look forward to, for the extra gameplay hours you will accumulate over the festive period.

Sonic Frontiers trailer has revealed that Amy is a ghost now

Next up on the news front, we have reason to believe that Amy from Sonic is now a ghost within the game. She will be the voice of reason and guidance for Sonic on his gameplay and adventure, which leaves us hanging with multiple questions. Is she dead? Has she been possessed? Is she stuck in another world? While the answers are far from being given, players will be wanting to know more, leaving this a great marketing exploit to reel players into the storyline.

Microsoft ‘Lionhead was the biggest missteps’

Last but not least, while this comes to many as a little bit too late, it still is welcome, nevertheless. The episode of the Power on: The Story of Xbox saw multiple members of Xbox discuss how Lionhead studios had its closure and were in fact the biggest misstep of the company. While it is sad to look back on the closure of Lionhead, the game conglomerate can take a few lessons learned from the situation, including the fact that Xbox now believes it is their job to accelerate and help know-how and what they do (quoted directly from the episode). Nevertheless, fans who have followed the inner workings of Xbox for years will certainly be grateful for this progress forward and accountability from Microsoft.

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.

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.
