As A Soccer Fan, I'm Still Salty  The United States Didn't Qualify​ For The World Cup

There's nothing I love more than watching the U.S. men's national team play.

Some of my all-time favorite soccer players play for the United States National Soccer Team whether it's newbie, Christian Pulisic scoring on the field or legends Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard or even any of the women's players like Alex Morgan.

However, watching the World Cup will still be exciting so here are my top picks for the winners of this year's world cup in Russia even though I'd rather be watching my favorite team with national pride.

Mexico

Mexico is my lead favorite due to their first world cup victory over last world cup champions' Germany.

Brazil

Giphy

This pick is sort of biased since my sister-in-law is from Brazil but, no shame. With stars like Neymar Jr. on their team, it's not a long shot for them to end up going all the way.

Germany

Giphy

Last World Cup winners' are not the fan favorite especially with their loss to Mexico but you can't deny that they have talent with Neur and Ozil on the roster.

Argentina

Giphy

Some debate that Lionel Messi is the best soccer player in the world currently. Let's just see how far Messi with the help of his defender, Marcos Rojo can pull his country in order to bring home a trophy.

France

Giphy

With a first game win under their belt and big stars like Lloris in goal and Griezmann and one of my all-time favorite Manchester United players, Paul Pogba, they have a good chance at making it all the way.

Portugal

Giphy

Cristiano Ronaldo, enough said.

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.

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.
