My Top 10 Favorite Men's Tennis Players

1. Tomáš Berdych

Berdych is undoubtedly my favorite player. From his pure talent, to his consistent decade amongst the top ten, to his absolute adoration for his family, to his reservedness. Berdych encompasses the ideal athlete.

2. Gaël Monfils

Monfils is perhaps the world's most entertaining tennis player. The Frenchman throws his racquet at a ball, does splits and one of a kind jumps, never giving up on a point. He is and will always be a crowd favorite.

3. Kevin Anderson

Anderson is the epitome of modest. His 6'8 stature towers over everyone, but is balanced with his shy demeanor.

4. Juan Martín del Potro

Like Anderson, del Potro is truly a friendly giant. After several wrist surgeries and dropping from world number 4 to world number 621, del Potro has not given up. He has an unsurpassed tenacity which intrigues all tennis fans.

5. Roger Federer

Perhaps the greatest tennis player of all time, not only because of his grit and talent, but also because of his classiness and modesty.

6. Rafael Nadal

Nadal is a favorite tennis personality. His humor is often accidental, giving him a naive disposition. His speed on court, especially clay is unmatched, and he has never failed to respect an opponent.

7. Stanislas Wawrinka

A powerful player who keeps his composure after every point, with perhaps the best backhand tennis has ever seen. Wawrinka respects everyone, and win or lose, always embraces his opponents after a match.

8. Sam Querrey

Querrey was not on the list until Wimbledon of this year. The American was not highly respected, known to give up easily. However, when he defeated Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon, ending the champion's winning streak and reign, he earned an intense amount of respect.

9. Jerzy Janowicz

Janowicz started from the bottom. Growing up, he could barely afford a pair of tennis shoes or a satisfactory racquet. Still, with persistence, Jerzy rose to the top and is admired for his bravery.

10. Novak Djokovic

Djokovic is known for his ability to come back in a match, no matter how badly he is losing, and is obviously one of the best players of all time. However, he makes the list mainly because of his personality. Djokovic's impressions are some of the best, and always sparks laughter in the crowd.

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.
