Not to be biased, but I want this man to be our president. I worship him. You could say I'm obsessive, and my poster, chia pet, stickers, pins, shirts and more prove that.

Back on topic, the 2020 campaign. Bernie Sanders announced on Tuesday, February 19th, in the morning. Bernie Sanders is no longer the underdog of an election.

After his run in 2016, he gained the attention of the progressives. After running as an independent with a progressive socialist agenda, he gained national attention by the people, especially the younger crowd.

Millennials and Generation Z was the biggest crowd that got the attention of Bernie. The older generation is worrisome of Bernie and his agenda. They find socialism, legalization of marijuana, free college, and more "too out there." Just me personally, I have asked the older generation (40+) what they think of him, and it worries him. Even how old he is and looks scares them.

But the younger generation loves him, including me. What he had to say stood up for the people who are growing up in this America. He is all for the people.

From 2016 to now, Bernie Sanders is a well-known politician by all. With passionate hate for Donald Trump and what he has done during his term as President, Bernie is not happy.

During Trump's whole term, he has been fighting the man and advocating for the people. During the 2018 Midterms, Bernie and his organization, Our Revolution, endorsed thousands of candidates running for local and state positions. He went on tour with some of these candidates too including our very own gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

Our Revolution "will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the 'political revolution.' Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families. Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness."

Bernie's 2020 campaign slogan on his site is "Not me. Us."

"No one candidate, not even the greatest candidate you could imagine, is capable of taking on Donald Trump and the billionaire class alone. There is only one way we win — and that is together."

When Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy, I saw nothing on my news apps than that headline. Everyone posted (including myself) how excited they are. It's a big deal that he is running again. He has a better shot now because of the recognition he gained from his previous 2016 candidacy. Will he win? No idea, but he has a great chance.

Maybe people will vote for him this time around because they want the complete opposite of Trump. And that is Bernie Sanders. (the love of my life)

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
