Let's face it, the Presidential election has got everyone feeling like Britney Spears in 2007. Stressed, depressed, and not so well dressed. Our country is in need of a true leader, so forget Clinton and Trump. If we all are willing to be truly honest with ourselves, we can admit that the only person for the job is our very own Amy Poehler. Here are a few reasons why she is the only one who can truly "Make America Great Again".

We all know and love Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, her multiple personalities portrayed on SNL, her countless films, and New York Times Best Seller books. Her ability to play characters, especially through Leslie Knope, who is completely invested in being the best political servant she can be shows her credibility and should prove to us already that she would be an incredible President.

Amy Poehler doesn't let anyone push her around, which leads me to my next point in that she would not only stand up for herself while in Office but be a voice and an advocate to people everywhere as our next President.

She understands that sometimes, you just need to let your freak flag fly, and nothing says that better than a little break dancing which she proves to be the best at (just like she would be the best President... coincidence?)

Amy Poehler is fully aware of her own self-worth. Her confidence is off the charts and knows that she is the best at everything that she does.

This is what Amy would have to say for anyone doubting that a woman could make a good President for whatever idiotic reasons they believe to be true.

I think we can all agree as a country that Amy Poehler has already proven just by being her amazing self that she is not only the President that America wants, but the President that America needs... and let's not forget about VP Tina Fey. Why? Because...

8 Struggles Of Being 21 And Looking 12

The struggle is real, my friends.

“You'll appreciate it when you're older." Do you know how many times my mom has told me this? Too many to count. Every time I complain about looking young that is the response I get. I know she's right, I will love looking young when I'm in my 40s. However, looking young is a real struggle in your 20s. Here's what we have to deal with:

1. Everyone thinks your younger sister or brother is the older one.

True story: someone actually thought my younger sister was my mom once. I've really gotten used to this but it still sucks.

2. You ALWAYS get carded.

Every. Single. Time. Since I know I look young, I never even bothered with a fake ID my first couple of years of college because I knew it would never work. If I'm being completely honest, I was nervous when I turned 21 that the bartender would think my real driver's license was a fake.

3. People look at your driver's license for an awkward amount of time.

So no one has actually thought my real driver's license is fake but that doesn't stop them from doing a double take and giving me *that look.* The look that says, “Wow, you don't look that old." And sometimes people will just flat out say that. The best part is this doesn't just happen when you're purchasing alcohol. This has happened to me at the movie theater.

4. People will give you *that look* when they see you drinking alcohol.

You just want to turn around and scream “I'M 21, IT'S LEGAL. STOP JUDGING ME."

5. People are shocked to find out you're in college.

If I had a dollar for every time someone had a shocked expression on their face after I told them I'm a junior in college I could pay off all of my student loan debt. It's funny because when random people ask me how school is going, I pretty much assume they think I'm in high school and the shocked look on their face when I start to talk about my college classes confirms I'm right.

6. For some reason wearing your hair in a ponytail makes you look younger.

I don't understand this one but it's true. Especially if I don't have any makeup on I could honestly pass for a child.

7. Meeting an actual 12-year-old who looks older than you.

We all know one. That random 12-year-old who looks extremely mature for her age and you get angry because life isn't fair.

8. Being handed a kids' menu.

This is my personal favorite. It happens more often than it should. The best part of this is it's your turn to give someone a look. The look that says, "You've got to be kidding me".

Looking young is a real struggle and I don't think everyone realizes it. However, with all the struggles that come with looking young, we still take advantage of it. Have you ever gone to a museum or event where if you're under a certain age you get in for a discounted price? Yeah? Well, that's when I bet you wish you were us. And kids' meals are way cheaper than regular meals so there have definitely been a couple times when I've kept that kids' menu.

So, all in all, it's not the worst thing in the world but it's definitely a struggle.
