America Is Rolling With the Punches

Women are already proving that they won't let Trump off easy.

America Is Rolling With the Punches

Only a couple days into a Trump presidency, and our country is displaying so much strength, so much resilience. We do not hope to see the president fail, we do not hope to see our country fail; but we know that if President Trump succeeds in the plans that he has voiced then women, people of color, Muslims, and LGBTQ people will be in for four years of mistreatment. Through the Women's Marches all around the world, people are standing up against Trump's rhetoric and corrupt past and against some of Vice-President Mike Pence's ideas.

Women are standing up against misogyny. People of color are standing up against racism. Muslims are standing up against xenophobia. Gays are standing up against homophobia. Transgender people are standing up against transphobia. Remember that We The People have the power to make a difference. We The People have the strength to fight for the next four years, We The People will not back down. This is our country. We are the majority.

Though these protests come from opposition of Trump and from fear of the next four years, I believe this is a sign that for the next four years women will be stronger than ever. Our country is ready to fight for what is right and will accept nothing less. Our country is ready to stand up to Trump and Pence. Our country will continue to roll with the punches.

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.
