100 Days Left

Our time with the greatest president is coming to an end

100 Days Left

On November 8th, 2016 our lives will forever change. Whenever we go to sleep on that Tuesday night, we will either go to sleep one of two ways. One way is happily, knowing that we will have a woman who is qualified for the job that is our next president; or we will be upset and scared, knowing that a "businessman" who has zero idea how to run a country and whose ideal America takes us back to the 1800's is our next president.

Either way, the only thing that is true about whomever our next president is, is that it is not Barack Obama. I know, that's a given. His two term limit is up and I think I speak for everyone when I say, I wish it wasn't.

Obama is down to his last 100 days, so I know I'm going to miss everything that has happened in the past 2,824 days. In less than 100 days we won't have the Obama's as our first family anymore.

Long gone are the days of seeing Barack and Michelle walking on the White House lawn, getting a glimpse of Sasha and Malia growing up, and of course Barack and Michelle's guest appearances on various talk shows professing their love for each other and showing us why they're not only the coolest parents around, but the best president and first lady.

More than anything, the things I will treasure the most during the last 96 days with Obama as our president are his efforts to make this country better. Unlike those who came before him, he took down one of the world's most wanted terrorist, provided healthcare to everyone, makes an effort for stricter gun laws, has amazing State of the Union addresses and legalized gay marriage.

To the entire Obama administration, thank you for everything you've done for the past 2,824 days and for everything you will do for the next 96 days. Every challenge you've faced hasn't gone unnoticed-thanks to the relentless media attention-and I definitely appreciate every decision you've made. It will definitely be hard to top having Barack Obama as our president, and the only thing that will top it is having Michelle run. I know it's a long shot, but hey a girl can dream!

I realized dreams come true from Barack Hussein Obama on November 4th, 2008, because his dream of becoming president was the dream of not only himself, but every other black child in America. He made his dream possible and because of him, I will make mine too.

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.
