Donald vs. Hillary

Some actual questions we may want to ask these candidates

Donald vs. Hillary

I wanted to write a piece about how angry I am with the current state of America, but I felt it would fall on deaf ears. It is honestly a tragic realization that we tend to not care about the current state of most things we dwell in on a day to day basis, but I digress. Instead, I have decided to type an article full of questions and maybe a few answers as to what is actually going on in today’s time.

The First One:

How important are we to ourselves?

  • This one is personal and up to one’s own discretion.
  • Education… true education. Self-actualization is key to a rewarding journey.
  • Honestly, we have to make our own. There is absolutely no other way. If it means as much to us as we say it does, we should have no issue starting fresh as well as putting others in the position to succeed as well.

Number Two:

Where do we begin to rebuild (ourselves, the community, others, the world, etc.)?


Is there a way to fully regain the things we perceive to be lost (i.e. our pedigree, originality, talent, skills, and the like)?

Number Four:

How come we are just beginning to understand ourselves, and where does one begin to gain more understanding?


If the belief system is that we are created by one supreme being, why is there always disruption at the forefront?

Number Six:

Is there ever going to be a time and place for us to be ONE HUNDRED PERCENT great? Not equal, but greater opportunities, ones that will advance and sustain us.

Lastly, I think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (and no I am not an MLK Jr. sympathizer) said it best when he asked, “Where Do We Go Here.” These are just a few of the things that I challenge myself with daily. I know this article may seem a bit odd, but I just felt it necessary to pose some of my favorite and most challenging questions to you. Maybe you can answer them.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
