"Fortnite: Battle Royal" is a great game to play with friends or alone and is especially fun when you win. However, if you get eliminated early on in every single round the game can become extremely frustrating. To prevent the pain of losing another game, just remember these few tips.

1.Tilted Training

Try landing in tilted towers or other popular landing zones to improve your basic skills. When you land there be sure to practice the other strategies consistently to perfect your battle royale proficiency.

2. Move Quietly

Especially when approaching buildings, structures and corners that are difficult to see around. Know that crouching without running is the quietest while running while standing is the loudest form of movement. Take the extra time to move slowly to avoid detection and listen out for footsteps of other players.

3. Location, Location, Location

Where are we dropping? Perhaps the most interesting part of the game is leaping off the party bus to descend towards the ground. Knowing where to land is a very important part of the game. A recent update included a path shown on the map prior to the game beginning. Finding a place with enough resources that people are less likely to go to will help you survive the early stages of the game and prevent the helpless frustration of being eliminated right as you touch down.

This is probably one of the most important factors that go into winning a match. Check out this list for a better description of landing zones that I have personally tested and used just about every time I play the game.

4. Don't Settle For Bad Weapons

If all you have is a pump-action shotgun and a revolver, you stand no chance in even a small skirmish. Keep searching around for additional loot no matter how far into the game you are. Even extra ammo can bridge the gap between epic defeat and victory royale.

5. Best defense is a good offense, plus a little patience.

Be aggressive in one on one encounters if you have already been detected. If not, keep quiet and wait till your opponent is distracted, then take them out as fast and aggressively as you can. Every time I have won a game, I did it by sneaking up on the last player after they have eliminated another opponent. This is when they are distracted, weak and easy to get.

6. Learn how to land!

Aim for low points in the land to have your glider deploy later in order to reach the ground as fast as possible, then steer towards a higher point.

7. Become a master builder.

The thing that makes Fortnite different from other survival battle games, is the ability to create structures. Building your fortress multiple layers deep, using ramps and multiple materials.

8. Know your weapons.

The weapons system is fairly simple in Fortnite. The color order for the rarity of weapons is similar to other games, starting with grey as the most common then increasing in rarity going to green, blue, purple and finally, the legendary gold weapons. A rarer weapon will grant you more damage as well as a faster rate of fire and higher capacity. GameSkinny has an excellent in-depth explanation of how the weapons system works in the game.

9. Find your settings.

Just like any video game, having the settings different than what you're used to can make a difference in your performance. Be sure to adjust brightness, sensitivity, screen boundaries and stick layout.

10. Have a plan!

Know what path you will take once you land to outrun the storm. Try to avoid paths that go near populated and open areas that could potentially have other players hiding in waiting to attack someone passing by.

11. Try out other techniques.

There's no one right way to play the game. Find out which strategies work best with your playing style and try new things. You could jump right when the bus doors open to reach the ground before anyone else, or wait until the last second and open your chute immediately and wait to see where the storm forms before you decide on a place to land.

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.
