10 Fictional Characters Who Should Run For President
huffington post

In just a few months our country will elect a new president, our candidates have been chosen and the ballots are set. Political debate is in full swing so there is no better time to lighten things up. Here are ten fictional characters who would make excellent presidential candidates, choose you vote carefully!

Leslie Knope

Of course, the obvious choice. Her time in the Pawnee Parks Department has shown she is more than capable of being a successful president. Also, come on people it is her life long dream.

Professor Minerva McGonagall

Lets be honest, she basically ran Hogwarts with her BFF Albus Dumbledore. I'm pretty sure she has plenty of spells to combat any problem she could face in the White House.

Bugs Bunny

First of all, everyone needs a little comic relief in their lives, but more importantly Bugs can get himself out of any situation, dupe any Elmer Fudd and always ends up on top. He would start every speech with "Whats up Doc?" and you've got to admit that line brings you right back to your childhood.

Dwight Schrute

Structured and ethical, Schrute has a position on almost every issue and will score well with business men and farmers alike.

Olivia Pope

Okay, who are we kidding, Olivia saved Fitz' presidency more than once in the first season of Scandal alone. She has proved that she can stay cool in any situation and would make one bad-ass president.

Willy Wonka

Who wouldn't want a "world of pure imagination" and chocolate waterfalls? I think four years is just enough time to turn the country into his chocolate factory. That's really all he'd need to do as president...

Ron Swanson

Steak would be guaranteed at every White House dinner. He is rational, realistic and principled. His campaign slogan would be "Never half ass two things. Whole ass one thing"

Leroy Jethro Gibbs

He is definitely the Commander-in-Chief of NCIS. He commands respect with his no-nonsense leadership and is revered by his team. He knows that sometimes people need a little smack on the back of the head and he has a rule for everything.

Kim Possible

"It doesn't matter where or when there's trouble," she'll be there on the double. Talk about reliable, am I right? She was fighting crime when she was in high school so I'm sure she could run the country, no problem. Seriously thought call her or beep her if you want to reach her...

Barney Stinson

He would be a legen...wait for it...dary president! Stinsons has already proved himself to be capable of convincing people to do anything, while being quite the risk taker himself. He would have a play in his playbook for any situation that would come his way in the White house and he would always be dressed to impress! His campaign slogan would definitely be "Challenge Accepted!"

So who would you vote for?

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.
