Dear Donald Trump, Could You Not?

Stop leaving broken families throughout the Country.

Dear Donald Trump, Could You Not?

In times of crisis I turn to you. You're the President of The United State, yet you act like a fool. You have racists in your cabinet, and while your supporters went as far to protect you and say that you aren't racist, you truly are.

You say you are a man of the people, yet you choose to kick those who keep this country strong out. You say you want to 'make America great again', yet those who have made America great again, are being persecuted and sent back to places they no longer call home. They may not be American citizens or hold a simple green card to prove that they are legal, but they are more American than anyone else. They love this land and work hard to live day in and day out in it. Their children educate themselves, learn the American way, speak perfect english (some better than many American born) and go on and get a diploma, just like the American dream promised. They celebrate the Fourth of July with pride and joy, and sing the anthem with love in their hearts. Yet your supporters and yourself want to kick them out.

I ask myself why, but I know the answer. The answer is that you are scared. You're scared that these latinos are taking your jobs and education. But the truth is, they really aren't. These immigrants have less chances to make a better life for themselves, yet they fight hard to do so. They don't have the same privileges as an American Citizen, yet they work hard so they can get close to even some kind of privilege. You bash immigrants for being rapists, criminals, and job stealers; but that is only a minority. What if we looked at white people as school shooters and lazy, but we don't. Then why look at a small amount of immigrants as rapists? I need you to realize that Immigrants as just as important as any other person in this country. They all may not have luxurious jobs, but they do clean your toilets, tend your gardens, and wash your cars. But they're stealing jobs? I don't see many American Citizens working four jobs so they can get their kids through school. And I am not here to bash citizens, I'm here to open everyones eyes. I want you to realize how hard it is for immigrants in this country. They work hard, and they do pay taxes. Don't hate them for working hard, applaud them for wanting a better job and wanting to live the American way.

Don't forget your ancestors were immigrants. Don't forget where you came from, because immigrants and minorities DID build this country. Without them, this country wouldn't be where it is today. Stop seperating families, stop leaving broken families throughout the country, because instead of fixing the problem, you are making it worse.

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.

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.
