Women, Cages, And Broken Bones

We'll see at least 2 of those 3 this Sunday.

Women, Cages, And Broken Bones

So this Sunday Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks will be wrestling in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell. This is big for two reasons: the first reason is because so many people have made a big deal about it and also because it will be the first time two women will have wrestled in a hell in a cell match. So what does this mean?

Traditionally Hell in a Cell is match where the ring is surrounded by a 20-foot high cage that inevitably people fall from. The most famous example is where Mick Foley was thrown from the top of the cell by the undertaker in 1998 and then choke slammed through the roof of the cage. Pretty violent by today's PG standards for WWE.

But now we are going to see two women doing this. Well, while I personally don't think that women main eventing (which is something some people push for) is good for business the fact that the women may possibly recreate some hellacious stunts is great. Women's wrestling has been one of two things since the late 90's; women doing sexually suggestive things in mud or what have you or women desperately trying to match men's wrestling and coming up boring as a result.

Violence is whatever you make of it but I see this as a step forward for women in wrestling. If these two can prove they can take bumps like people like Mick Foley did, women in WWE may do more and more as the company progresses and may even main event some pay per views.

I mean hell, I'll freak out if one of the two gets thrown from the top.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
