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.

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.

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.
