Democracy is the way to go.

Democracy Is The Best Form Of Government We Could Have

Compared to all of the other forms of government, I feel that democracy is the best form of government that we have at our disposal. The main reason why is that it truly represents equality and liberty. Democracy is giving the people the idea that their thoughts matter when it comes to their government. They have a chance for their voices to be heard and have an equal say regarding their system of government. The final say will always go to the people.

I understand that there are people who will question how the losing side's voice wasn't heard, or they'll say the opposing side is evil. We live in a world where not everybody has the same opinion, and while there are some people out there who can be persuaded, there are some who cannot. This is where democracy comes into play. It allows citizens to freely speak and vote based on their opinions and thoughts.

Now to make that happen, the citizens and the group that they represent need to be involved in activities such as voting to see their ideas and opinions come to life. Another great thing about democracy is as long as you properly succeed in passing the requirements, no matter your economic status, your voice is sure to be heard when it comes to voting.

In times of war, some would say that we're now stuck with democracy when that's not the form of government we need right now. What about when there's no crisis though? With every form of government, there are pros and cons. A reoccurring con for democracy that I see often is that it's too unorganized and all over the place. That with this conflict happening within the government, democracy would slowly fall in shambles, and decision-making would be prolonged. People don't believe that enough regulations and actions are being taken. The reality of the situation is that with a democratic republic, you have a collection of people's thoughts and opinions being heard and considered. That means that the electoral and legislative process can take a lot longer. I can't deny the notion that these decisions do take time, but what I will say is that all of this helps reduce the chances of any rushed or radical decisions.

And even if a mistake was somehow made, democracy allows us the ability to correct it. For certain governments, the same thing cannot be said, which is another reason why I'm going to have to stick with democracy as my government.

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.

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.
