10 Reasons Why Bernie Sanders is the Most Likable Presidential Candidate

Haven’t Seen Bernie Sander’s First TV Ad? Here’s Why You Should

With Bernie Sanders falling behind Hillary in national polls, a TV Ad was bound to be released. On Nov. 1 the ad, titled “Real Change,” was made public, but I just saw it for the first time. Unfortunately, unless you live in Iowa or New Hampshire, or search for it on YouTube, you’ll never see it.

I won’t even try to be impartial; from the facts to the facial expressions, this minute long video shows us why Bernie is the most likable presidential candidate.

1. He’s a self-made man.

Bernie grew up in a Brooklyn tenement, went to public school and now he is running for one of the most powerful political positions in the world. If anyone can give hope to hard-working Americans, he can.

2. He Marched on Washington in 1963 for Civil Rights.

Going from an activist to a politician can only mean that he really cares about making positive progressive changes to this country, particularly changes that will truly make the U.S. a place of equal opportunity for all.

3. He’s been a Mayor and served in Congress.

I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer a President who knows what happens after being elected to a political office and not just what happens after striking a deal with a multimillion-dollar corporation.

4. He wants to reform Wall Street.

The wealthy will be slightly less wealthy, but the middle class will grow. Sounds like a good trade-off to me!

5. The TV Ad and his campaign are funded entirely by individuals, not corporations.
Having a president that isn’t held back by the political agenda of any corporation is definitely reassuring. The people support Bernie, and isn’t that what democracy is all about?

6. He wants equal pay for women workers.
It’s 2015 and a woman working the same job as a man still gets paid 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. How can this nation claim to be a place of equal opportunity when more than half of the population is treated unequally no matter how much or how hard they work? A man who cares about women’s rights is a man worth keeping.

7. Bernie wants to save the planet.
Humans live on Earth. No earth, no humans. So basically Bernie cares about all human beings. Even if you still believe global warming is a myth, despite the enormous scientific evidence it isn’t, how can you dislike someone who cares about keeping you alive?

8. He wants tuition-free colleges.

I can’t think of one college student or parent of a student that doesn’t want free tuition. Whether or not you think this is a fiscally viable plan, it’s impossible to believe that a bachelor’s degree should cost $60,000+ per year.

9. He doesn’t trash other candidates in his ad.
He cares more about raising awareness of the issues plaguing the U.S. rather than winning the presidential race. He doesn’t hesitate to disagree with other candidates, but he’s not a jerk about it. Yep, he’s a good person.

10. He is the cutest man alive.

From his accent to his hand movements to his dance moves, Bernie Sanders is a very entertaining presidential candidate.

Oh, and now I know you want to see the video, so here it is:

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.

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.
