The Voice: The Gwen and Blake Mistake

Why The Voice is Losing Viewers This Season

One of the things I love most about NBC’s "The Voice" is the refreshing take on competition in today’s world. The “blind auditions” eliminate any bias in judgment due to race, gender, height, religion, fashion, style, and the list goes. With the many debates on discrimination going on, such as feminism campaigns, black lives matter, and so many more, "The Voice" brings communities together in a refreshing way.

The competition is based solely off of the singer’s voices and their voices alone. NBC’s "The Voice" is organized in a way that no other talent competition show has been set up in the past. With the interesting different rounds, such as auditions, knockouts, and the battles, the competition stays tough and intense the whole time! One of my favorite things about the show is the four judges every season. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are a staple to the show’s aura. Their never-ending banter keeps everyone laughing. The other two judges rotate with each new season which keeps the opinions fresh. This season, the other two judges are the returning American singer and songwriters Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys. If you live in a house like mine, "The Voice" is a weekly tradition that gets the family gathered on the couch with popcorn in hand.

Although, this season has brought quite a change, not only in my family’s opinion, but in the viewer's population as well. We are all aware and have all heard of the recently new relationship between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Both Blake and Gwen were married and decided to get divorced around the same time. Regardless of the reasons for each splitting off their marriages, whether for each other or not, the public display of their relationship on the television is annoying and inappropriate, and according to the ratings, I am not the only one who feels this way.

The two judges Blake and Gwen have managed to take the spotlight off of the amazing and talented singers and place it on themselves. The couple takes every opportunity to display their relationship and love for each other. "The Voice" lost nearly two million viewers practically overnight and I think the ceaseless flirting between the love birds is to blame. Now, not only does Blake share a brother like relationship with Adam on the show, but now a romantic one with Gwen as well.

I think that hopefully if the flirting stops, the rapidly dropping ratings will as well!

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.
