Watch Out For the Yankees This 2018 Season

Even if you don't like the Yankees, you probably own one of their hats.

Watch Out For the Yankees This 2018 Season

With spring training quickly approaching, it's time to start getting excited about baseball season. There's nothing like going to a game with your family or friends, hearing that old organ play "Take Me Out To the Ball Game," and cheering on your favorite team. If you know me, you know that my team is the New York Yankees.

The Yankees had a great 2017 season- they proved skeptics wrong, made it to the post-season, and ended in second place in the AL East. From Didi tieing up the Wild Card Game to Greg Bird start the winning streak against Cleveland- this team remains optimistic and makes the best out of every situation, just like their thumbs down joke.

With the new season comes new changes, and hopefully a World Series win.

Recently Joe Girardi announced that he won't be returning as the Yankees' manager. Like many other fans, I was upset to hear that since he's been with the team for so long. This season we're introduced to a new manager: Aaron Boone. Boone is a former Yankee himself and helped send the team to the 2003 World Series with his iconic homer against the Red Sox in game 7 of the ALCS.

But get excited because we have an insane lineup. Everybody knows how great Aaron Judge is, and I expect nothing less than him breaking his 52 regular-season home run record, which was the most home runs ever hit by a rookie. But now the Yankees don't have just one Home Run Derby champ- they have two.

The Yankees just got one of the best players out there to add to the lineup: Giancarlo Stanton. Staton won the 2016 Home Run Derby and is pretty much at the same level as Judge. If having these two in the same lineup doesn't scare the opposing team, I don't know what will.

So here's to lots of double plays, home runs, the Yanks throwing some no-hitters, and a 2018 World Series championship.

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.
