7 Reasons The Olympics Are The Best
vergecampus.com

The Olympics come around every two years, or every four, depending on which sports you like the best. And the Olympics inspire so many feelings inside us; the people watching at home and the people actually competing. I love laying on my couch watching my team compete in the events I love. Sitting with my friends and family, wearing red, white, and blue, and yelling at the TV screen until our throats are sore, is what the Olympics are all about. Here are seven very good reasons why the Olympics are the best.

1. The Olympics Create Unity.

Everyone respects other countries, and everyone whats the athletes to do their best. It does not matter if your country wins or loses, because you are watching the very best of the best in the whole world compete for three spots. It creates unity in people all over the world, because everyone is in awe of the athletes spectacular abilities.

2. Team Spirit.

Everyone is patriotic during the Olympics, no matter where you are. Every country has pride in the top athletes they have picked to go represent their country. No one drags on their country, because they want their country to succeed.

3. Dreams are Achieved.

The athletes picked to go to the Olympics work their entire lives to be the very best. They have had a dream since they were 3 that all they wanted to do is be an Olympian. Watching these athletes make it past their trails to compete in the Olympics is amazing. We are literally watching someone's dreams be achieved on TV.

4. Everyone is a Good Sport.

Whether your country's athletes win or lose, everyone is a good sport. The first place winner always congratulates the second and third place winner, and vise versa. Everyone competing knows how much hard work and effort goes into making it to the Olympics. And just competing with athletes who are so good at what they do gives everyone competing a respect for those they have been pt up against.

5. A Newfound Respect for Other Sports.

Everyone wants their country to be the best, so other sports that people don't recognize because they aren't aware of them suddenly becomes an interest to people. To little kids, watching the Olympics opens their eyes to the possibilities of so many different kinds of sports and dreams that come along with them.

6. The Whole Entire World Competes.

Honestly, what is cooler than having the whole world compete in a bunch games?

7. IT'S THE OLYMPICS!

That's it. It's the Olympics for Pete's sake, that's why it's the best.

So go and sit on your couch, and watch the amazingness unfold before your eyes.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
