The Relaxing Yet Stressing Weekend Of The Masters

The 2018 Masters is just around the corner. If you're a big golf fan, I'm sure you know all about this one. If you're not, you should still watch the tournament. The course is one of the most pristine layouts of any course in the country and the world for that matter.

The course has arguably the most famous hole in golf, Amen Corner. The 12th hole in Augusta, Georgia is the shortest that the course offers, but it's not the easiest. Nothing's easy at the Masters. And if you're into patterns or history, this year should be yet another highlight of the year in professional golf.

Last year gave us a playoff to decide the winner. It came down to Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose. Both were incredibly consistent throughout the tournament and found their stride in the final round. It was Garcia who prevailed over Rose in the playoff, shooting a birdie on the par-4 18th hole.

This year shapes up to be one of the more interesting tournaments in recent years. Jim Nantz, who's been covering the Masters for 33 years and has made some of the most memorable calls in Masters history, held nothing back when talking about the high anticipation for this year's event.

"I've been doing this 33 years, it's always highly anticipated, but this might be the most anticipated Masters any of us has seen in our lifetime," Nantz said.

While competition runs high and the best golfers in the world pit themselves against the field, themselves, and the course, it's often the scenery that makes the event unlike any other golf tournament. It's the most recognizable golf tournament in the world for a reason.

Sitting back in your chair in a golf coma as some of the best players traverse one of the most beautifully kept courses in the world sounds like a pretty great weekend to me.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
