12 Rocks I Would Vote For Over Any GOP Candidate

If you plan on voting Republican this time for President, looks like pickings are slim. Perhaps, the alternative to voting for a lunatic that is sure to drive the country into ruin is to vote for a lunatic who is actually funny and pragmatic (see Vermin Supreme). However, if you are so hell-bent on participating in this country's "democratic" system, then consider the following candidates representing the pinnacle of geological design:

1. Fluorite.

Look at that fade of violet, blue, and green! This fluorite specimen represents a wide range of color and values that chemical diversity, unlike Trump, Cruz, and Rubio.

2. Titanium quartz.

Titanium is found in many tools, including surgical implements. Perhaps Ben Carson can credit these for his success as a surgeon.

3. Agate.

Although it doesn't look pleasant to drink out of, this agate bowl probably holds more water than most GOP arguments on climate change and civil rights

4. Limestone.

Ben Carson may not be correct about the function of the pyramids, but we can all agree on the fact that this rock is responsible for one of Egypt's most iconic structures.

5. Turquoise.

If Donald Trump builds a wall separating us from Mexico and they have to pay for it, can it at least be made of this beautiful mineral found there? If you are going to be an ass, might as well do it in style.

6. Jade.

No, Donald Trump. Climate change isn't a Chinese construct meant to destabilize the American economy. However, it's widely known that the best jade comes from there. Unless our economy ends up revolving around domestically-mined jade, I don't think there is much reason to worry.

7. Yellow diamonds.

While I do not know the exact price of these gems here, I'd estimate that I'll need a small loan of a million dollars to be able to afford these.

8. Regular old diamonds.

They say that diamonds are forever. Let's hope that doesn't hold true for the Bush dynasty.

9. Amethyst geodes.

Sorry, Mike Huckabee. You won't represent your state in the Oval Office this year. However, you can take pride in the fact that Arkansas is home to beautiful geodes like this one.

10. The Bacon Rock in the Royal Ontario Museum.

No, Chris Christie. This isn't a succulent cut from a pig (or turkey, or cow, or whatever you make bacon out of). Unless you enjoy chewing on mineral formations.

11. Lapis lazuli.

If you want to continue a country ruled by the bourgeois, then you might as well adopt a symbol of opulence from pre-revolution France. Lapis lazuli was used to make ultramarine blue, one of the most coveted and expensive dyes at that time.

12. This Rock.

At least he's entertaining while brutalizing whoever steps in the ring against him.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
