Is pool a sport?

When asked what is your favorite sport what do you normally say? Will ten times out of ten, pool probably won’t come to your mind. People have argued about if pool is a sport or just a game because it’s just something to go do with your friends ,where you can just joke around and have a good time. But there are people that play pool professionally, in those occasions I bet they don’t think of it as a game, they think of it as a money source.

Professional pool players can get injured just like other “sports”. A post by a website call Azbillards goes into more of those injuries. They even have to practice and use corination just like other major sports. Yes they don’t have physical contact like many other sports but neither does sports like Nascar.

Now that pools been getting more serious throughout this century, they are trying to get pool into the Olympics. Pool will not be in the 2020 Olympics, but there is still hope for the 2024 Olympics. If you want to read more into that then a post from BBC goes more into that.

In conclusion, pool can honestly be play as either just a friendly game or a sport. It just depends who it is playing and why. Now the question to ask yourself is, “Would you consider it as sport?”


How to survive the first week of College: Part 1

As most people know classes started this week at Arkansas Tech University, and it’s been quite different than high school. Here is a couple of tips to help you get by for now and even for the rest of your college days.

For starter’s your educator is now called an professor, not a teacher, they have worked hard for their degrees. Some professors might not care if you call them Mr. or Mrs., but it’s still good to be respectful to your educator by calling them what they are. Being respectful to them will get you on good terms with them and they will be more than willing to try to help you with problems throughout the semester or year.

Another tip I have noticed and have been told was to read and keep your syllabus’s of each class. They can come in handy om many ways such as telling you about important dates and telling you what to read from your books. 

It’s basically like a cheat sheet for the class, but not really.  We are no longer in high school, the professor won’t tell us when things are coming up because they assume you’ve kept and read your syllabus. It would be quite embarrassing to walk into class and the professor asks for your project and up I have no idea what he or she is talking about. College is a place you pay for so you might as well try to do the best you can.

How to survive the first week of College: Part 3

The last tip i have to offer, that has honestly benefited me, would be making a daily schedule. On this schedule you should put homework dates, test dates, class times, and also even the times when you can meet up with teachers to talk about homework. I honestly messed up on not making one and forgot that I had math homework. Don’t be like me in that situation, missing easy homework points just because you’re forgetful.

    Hopefully all three of these tips are helpful on not only surviving the first week of college but also the rest of your college life. Remember just get things over with and not procrastinate   you’d feel better and overall more confident in your work.
