Donald Trump's Inauguration Set List

If Trump Sings at his Inauguration...

If you follow the hot mess that is the President-elect’s twitter feed, you know Donald Trump can’t land a musical performer to grace the stage at his inauguration. The presidential inauguration is merely a month away, and with no performer lined up, it looks like The Donald might have to improvise. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa from Disney’s Frozen had a brilliant suggestion: “Maybe he’ll just have to sing something himself. He probably thinks he has a great voice; he thinks he does everything great.” Mr. Trump, if you’re reading this, allow me to suggest a few heart-warming tunes that fit your vocal range and that will surely delight the American people:

“Just a Friend” by Biz Markie

I have complete faith that Trump could replicate this song beautifully. It could also serve as an ode to the American people as they face the inevitable break-up with Barack Obama.

“Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child

Throughout the election cycle, the President-elect took on an almost Voldemort-like infamy as people began to avoid uttering that name — Donald J. Trump. This song can be a plea to the country to put that aside and bop for the next four years.

“I Love Rock & Roll” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

If this song can show the world that Britney Spears was the only truly talented member of a trio of road-tripping teenage girls, it might show America that they can trust an orange-tinted, clueless, failed businessman to run the country.

“Sorry” by Justin Bieber

This song might be out of Trump’s vocal range, but I think the message is one that should be heard by numerous groups and individuals that have met the wrath of The Donald’s reckless speech—even if it really is too late to say sorry. Sorry, Mexican-Americans. Sorry, Black Lives Matter. Sorry, Hillary Clinton…

“I Was Only Joking” by Rod Stewart

This song is a chance for Trump to pull back the curtain and snap out of the terrifying joke that was his campaign and reassure the country that he’s not really a bigoted dope of a president. Then America can pretend this was all just a big musical farce just for giggles.

Start practicing, Donald! The inauguration is just around the corner.

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.
