Toronto on Tear Since Acquiring Tulowitzki

Blockbuster deal of the year.

Toronto on Tear Since Acquiring Tulowitzki

Since the trade deadline on July 31, the Toronto Blue Jays have arguably been baseballs best team. with the deadline approaching, Toronto was looking to get someone that could help them climb atop the AL East. Sure enough the Blue Jays landed one of baseballs best all round players in the game. The Colorado Rockies and Toronto Blue Jays agreed on a blockbuster deal, sending shortstop Jose Reyes to Colorado, and Troy Tulowitzski to the Blue Jays. The deal also included some minor league players.

It's safe to say the Blue Jays have found their perfect man. Since Tulowitzki's debut on July 29, the Blue Jays have won 14 out of their last 15 games. He also homered in his debut. Most importantly, the Toronto Blue Jays are now in first place in the AL East overtaking the Yankees.

Since the trade, many were wondering what the Rockies were thinking when they decided to give up their best player for a shortstop who is most likely past his prime. With this trade the Rockies are looking to completely turn their franchise around with a young group of guys. Very similar to what the Chicago Cubs have done in the past by getting rid of some of their big name players so they can develop their prospects later on.

Looking at it now, it's safe to say that plan has helped the cubs with the fourth best record in baseball. For the Colorado Rockies, they are hoping this trade was the stepping stone to a new era. As for the Blue Jays, well they are just straight on fire since acquiring Tulowitzki.

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.

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.
