Donald Trump's Win Is A Win For The Little Guy

Fellow Americans, it's time to make America great again.

Donald Trump's Win Is A Win For The Little Guy

As I write this, it is the night of November 10. Less than 48 hours after I found out the man I supported since last summer won the Presidency. This is a win for more than just Donald Trump and Mike Pence -- this is a win for the little guy.

I watched as state after state turned red. I watched as Donald Trump took Florida, which Mitt Romney lost in 2012. Then the entire Rust Belt turned red -- Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan all went for Trump.

After the election Donald Trump tweeted,

Regular working class Americans are fed up with the way the system has beat down and alienated them, and they made their voices heard at the polls. Coal miners and steel workers, who have traditionally voted Democrat, could not be swayed to follow Hillary Clinton.

This was more than just an election between two candidates. One one side stood the mainstream media, political corruption, elitism, and career politics. On the other stood hope and change, a political outsider, a fight for the average American.

Donald Trump became the voice for those who felt like they did not have one. Blue collar workers especially are the backbone of our nation, and they have increasingly been ignored by the Democratic Party.

This victory signifies hope and change for millions of Americans, and I, for one, and beyond happy and excited to watch President Trump, along with a Republican House and Senate and the American people, make America great again.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
