5 Reasons Why You Should Make A Gallery Wall

Get crafting, girl!

It's 2018, and people are becoming more obsessed with Pinterest. Everyone these days is into the whole DIY aesthetic to feel some type of artsy. People are also becoming more modern and like the idea of decorating their house, dorm, or even backyard. A big thing on Pinterest right now is a Gallery wall. At first, it's easy to judge and think, "What a dumb idea." Well, after you scroll through some ideas on Pinterest you will start to want to make one yourself. Below are the reasons why you should start a gallery wall.

1. It's fun

Next time you're bored on a Saturday afternoon, try finding a gallery wall you like from Pinterest and try to match it. Even just scrolling through Pinterest makes you in a creative mood.

2. It's inspiring

As you start to make your own gallery wall, you will become inspired. It's inspiring to hang quotes up on your wall that mean something to you. It will even put you in a good mood when you glance over at one of the quotes you hung in the following days. Something as small as seeing a poster that says, "Hello Beautiful", can make your morning a tad bit brighter.

3. You can make it your own

Yes, many people get their ideas from Pinterest but you are putting it all together the way you want it. You can add as many pictures with quotes, patterns, or drawings you want. If you are very artistic you could even paint or draw all of your own pictures to use instead of printing them.

4. It spices up an empty wall

No more looking at your drabby stained dorm wall. If you put a gallery wall up, it will take up a lot of room and add some sparkle to the plain wall it was before.

5. Because nobody is stopping you

That's right. It's your dorm or apartment or house, and you can put anything you want up. Some exclusions apply in a dorm when using nails (sometimes you need to use command strips).

Now get going, girl!! Make the most beautiful, inspirational, and show-stopping gallery wall you can.

Socialism Doesn't Work, Even In Theory

Socialism is often looked at a Utopian system that benefits all, but this is not the truth.


A phrase uttered often in political discussions is "Socialism works well in theory". Supporters and opponents alike will claim this to be true. However, this is completely false. Socialism is a system in which the people who do well are robbed and are forced to give up sums of money for "the greater good". It robs the people of the fruits of their own labor. The far left would like people to believe that with more extensive taxes and a complete switch in direction to socialism from capitalism is a wonderful idea.

Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claim that a surrendering of rights and giving the government more power will provide more economic security. What a socialism does is it takes away incentives to innovate and succeed. Multiple real life cases have proved this such as the crises in Cuba, Nicaragua, and more recently Venezuela. Venezuela had tremendous wealth that was squandered and stolen from the people who work hard and do well. China and Russia have funneled billions of dollars into the failing Venezuelan economy and still it is one of the worst in the world.

The proponents of socialism will cite the Nordic Countries as tales of success in the world of socialism. However, these economies are ranked among the best for economic freedom and the welfare states are built upon the power of open market capitalism. Even more ludicrous is the term Democratic Socialism. The term relies on the idea that democratic is just. Democratic does not always mean just. The platform in North Korea is democratic, but as many of you know, the elections are single candidate with Kim Jung Un as the only candidate.

Famous politicians such as Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez tout that they will do socialism correctly and other systems have been corrupted. If a system is so easily defiled in real life circumstances, then how is it a good economic policy? Under conservative presidents, the United States has seen more economic growth than under liberal presidents and that is not a coincidence. The United States has become the world's sole superpower under the guidance and freedom of capitalism.

So I finally say: no, socialism does not work well in theory.
