Doing things the Tina Fey Way #Sheetcaking

Why Tina Fey Is The Best

If you have not seen the latest SNL Weekend Update: Tina Fey on Protesting After Charlottesville skit. I suggest you click here and watch it. Then continue to read on.

Tina Fey is notoriously known for being a writer on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Where she has also been in front of the camera as well. Though many people were wowed after watching Saturday's skit. It is not uncommon to hear Tina view her opinions of current events. She always put some comedy in it like mentioning Donald's Trump's full name being Donald John Trump, that it does not flow well. Then mentioning it does not matter because he is gorgeous. Also eating angrily mouth full of sheet cake while ranting on.

Though through all the nonsense Fey makes a very good point on participating in rallies.

"I don't want to see anymore good people to get hurt."

Fey said as her tone of voice became solemn. As we heard the news of a young woman named Heather Heyer passed away after being hit by a car that plowed into protestors in Charlottesville.

"I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and we're asking ourselves 'What can I do? I'm just one person. What can I do?"

That is true. Many people are feeling helpless in times like these.

"I would urge people this Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support, maybe a Jeswish-run bakery, or an African American run bakery, order a cake with the American flag on it and eat it, Colin."

Fey then just stuffs a fork full cake in her mouth and everyone laughs while Colin is confused. Tina then tells Colin with her mouth still full with cake.

"Love is love, Colin!"

Tina continues to rant on about the protests and facts that how America belonged to the Native Americans that was stolen from them. Then bringing the argument to Standing Rock when the Native Americans and supporters have a peaceful protest others are armed. As Fey continues to make more valid arguments while still eating cake. She calls it "sheetcaking".

"Sheetcaking is a grassroots movement, Colin. Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election."

Fey then concludes the skit by telling everyone to not go to the protests.

"I really want to say to encourage good sane Americans, to treat these rallies this weekend like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads... don't show up."

The video has more than 7 million views and many people talking about it. Though protests are continuing and many people are getting hurt and arrested. While others are sitting at home on social media eating cake and posting #sheetcaking.

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.
