If Bill Nye Thinks 'The Planet’s On “F***ing Fire' Then You Should Be F***ing Worried

Recently, there has been a video going viral on multiple social media platforms of Bill Nye getting absolutely pissed at our generation who grew up with him for wrecking the earth. He states that "by the end of this century if emissions keep rising the average temperature on earth could go up another four to eight degrees.". He goes on to explain that the planet is on fire and that in order to solve the issue we need money. He angrily asserts that we are adults now and there is an actual crisis going on that we must pay attention to and do our very best to address.

If Bill Nye the Science Guy tells us we should be worried about the earth, then we should be damn worried about the earth! Bill Nye and scientific organizations have significant reasons for being concerned about our precious earth. For instance, "408 parts per million is the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere, as of 2018, is the highest it has been in 3 million years" (Climate change). In addition to this increasing concentration of CO2 in our atmosphere, the emissions continue to rise at an alarming rate. Specifically, "eleven percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans are caused by deforestation — comparable to the emissions from all of the cars and trucks on the planet" (Climate Change). The earth is suffering because we are not taking care of and respecting it! If we continue at this rate, we nor mother nature will last much longer.

What are some ways you can contribute to a greener earth? You can eat less meat, use paperless and recycle more, use canvas bags instead of plastic, start a compost pile, replace your light bulbs with eco-friendly ones, chose cloth over paper, cut down on energy use in your house, reduce water waste, recycle car parts, skip the bottled water, recycle your electronics, buy in bulk, and borrow instead of buying items. These are just some examples of the many ways you can contribute to a green, sustainable planet. Let's give back to mother nature what she deserves and treat the earth with respect! The time is NOW. Go green today!

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.
