6 Reasons Why A Monkey Should Run For President
Freaking News

Welcome to the 2016 election, where as united Americans we are screwed either way!

While I am not the most engaged citizen regarding politics, I do have the common sense and the pulse to realize that we need an alternative before the end of the world.

After much deliberation with my colleagues (I babysit a 6-year-old), we have decided an excellent alternative, and that is by electing the next best thing to run our country.

Why should we trust this lovely chimpanzee, you ask? Here are six reasons why.

1. Unlimited supply of bananas.

Besides terrorism, bad coffee and overpriced meals, there is not much Americans hate more than that gut-wrenching moment when you realize you ran out of bananas! Having a monkey as our President is our saving grace in this department, have you ever seen a monkey in less than a 15 foot span without a banana? Also, bananas are the perfect fruit to shove in a parent/friend/significant other's face when they're annoying the s*** out of you, as well as the perfect tool to trip a bitch in the hallway. Convenient and delicious!

2. They have the best intentions.

Monkeys are an extremely nurturing animal, only wanting the best for their people. Unlike most of the politicians in our government who only want to take our money, these creatures only want to make sure we are lice-free and don't have any bugs crawling around!

3. They are one of the most intelligent mammals.

Look it up on any website! Monkey's got brains on fleek! Though they don't look like the most intelligent creatures that have ever walked this earth, we don't have much better to compare them to!

4. They make terrific playmates.

Having a rough day? Who better to call up than our very own Monkey of the United States to hang on the jungle gym with? We have so much stress and pressure forced upon us due to society, so why not take a break and monkey around with the big ape in charge?

5. Free season passes to the zoo for ALL.

Tired of paying for those annoying season tickets for the zoo? With a monkey as our President, the only thing we will have to worry about is what kind of food to feed our favorite giraffe through the barbed-wire fence. Think about all of the money we will be saving our parents; no need for those stocking-stuffers anymore!

6. Our past two presidents were part chimpanzee.

Were you a fan of Bush and Obama but would've changed a few things? Makes sense, as research has shown they are both part monkey!

All of the parts you liked about them were more than likely due to their chimpanzee roots.

Thus leading us to our conclusion, join me on our road to a better future!

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.
