5. DeflateGate was still a big waste of time.

2015 engulfed us with DeflateGate, and 2016 was the year in which the NFL finally got what they wanted, a Tom Brady suspension. Oh…wait… the Patriots went 3-1 without Brady and are poised for another Super Bowl run with him at the helm. Meanwhile, Roger Goodell’s favorability is continuing to plummet along with NFL television ratings, indicating that the sums of money used to protect “the integrity of the game” were all for not.

4. Boston is still an unlikely free agent landing spot in the NBA.

Six months ago, Green teamers were salivating over the possibility of Kevin Durant coming to the Boston Celtics during free agency. But because he can’t beat the Golden State Warriors in Oklahoma City, he decided to join the Warriors in his attempt to get back at LeBron James for beating him in the only Finals he’s been to. Man, that sounds like the same ol’ NBA drama. For the Celtics, the move means that there is still work to be done in terms of becoming an attractive landing place for NBA superstars.

3. The Bruins still can’t score.

2016 began for the Boston Bruins with a 5-1 shellacking at Gillette Stadium during the Winter Classic at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens. The year is ending with the Bruins in desperate need of a spark after losing eight of the last thirteen. Currently, they also sit 24th in the NHL in goals per game. That being said, they are somehow still present in the playoff picture, much attribution belonging to David Pastrnak and his nineteen goals.

2. David Price still can’t win in October.

1.Tom Brady is still the GOAT.

Despite the NFL doing everything in their power recently to belittle him, Tom Brady remains the greatest quarterback in history. He is currently marching toward potentially his seventh Super Bowl appearance after eclipsing the 200 win mark. While Dak Prescott and Matt Ryan may win the MVP, Brady’s unprecedented stats at his age make an argument otherwise. We’ve known this for years, but Tom Brady is the greatest.

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.
