The First Beef of 2017

It's only the beginning of the year, and it's a new beef.

The First Beef of 2017

We are only in the first few weeks of 2017, and a beef in the music world has already taken place. Chris Brown, the multi-talented artist got into a confrontation with rapper Soulja Boy about a week ago. If you have no clue who Chris Brown is, search for his hit singles "Kiss Kiss" or "Run It!". Literally every girl was in love with him when they were in middle school, including me. If you don't know who Soulja Boy is, search "Crank Dat". Everybody would dance to his songs at the middle school dances, including me.

Chris Brown and Soulja Boy, like every person in the world, have their flaws and demons. We all know the situation with Brown and Rihanna, the constant visits to jail, the list goes on. Soulja Boy has done some crazy stuff too, such as going to jail, being sued by different people for his stage name, stupid beefs with other artists, and even being involved in a controversy with the U.S. Armed Forces. Everybody makes mistakes, that's obvious. These two men, being celebrities however, have all their business laid out for the world to see.

You're probably wondering how this beef started. The answer is Instagram. If you don't remember, Chris Brown was dating socialite Karreuche Tran, a woman who people also call Karate, Kellogg, Kamikaze, Kit Kat, the list goes on. A few days back, Soulja Boy commented on one of Tran's photos on Instagram. Chris Brown is still not over the fact Karreuche does not want him back, so he took offense to Soulja Boy commenting or liking Tran's picture. Soulja Boy made matters worse when he brought Royalty, Chris Brown's daughter into the mix.

Chris felt disrespected and picked a fight. This led to videos being posted by both Chris and Soulja Boy saying how they would challenge each other and just fight it out. The two men even got boxers Adrien Broner and Floyd Mayweather into the mix. Mayweather said he would be hosting the pay-per-view boxing match where Soulja Boy and Chris would be fighting to settle the matter.

What do you think? Chris Brown has been doing well for himself. He has hits after hits every year. Soulja Boy has been doing well for himself as well, but not so much. Did Soulja Boy start this just to get some spotlight on him? Did he really just want to be petty? Who will win the fight if their will actually be a fight?

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.
