Fake News Article

Fake news, it apparently is all the rage. But was there ever a time news was nothing more than shadows in Plato's cave? I give you as example the following headlines:

Donald Trump wins Presidency.

Hillary Clinton has private server in basement, as in 50 Shades or Gray server, cover story is it has to do with her email.

Of Small Hands Donald, Little Marco and Bernie, only Bernie is HUUUGGEEE

New York Times admits referring to itself as the Gray Lady is insulting to all Gray Haired Ladies and will immediately refer to itself as Nothing since you can not insult what does not exist

Secret Service discovers that people know they exist and will change name to...well it's a Secret.

New York Times to endorse the re-election of Donald Trump (okay so yes this one really is fake)

Mexican wall to be built by Chinese laborers in recognition for their fine work on the Trans Continental railway

Obesity increases in states with legal marijuana due to munchies which increases a persons carbon footprint, leading to a War between Enviro-leftists and Pro-Pot-leftists

Trump to live in a White House, asked to remember Black Houses Matter too

Southern Poverty Law Center realizes it hates hate groups and therefore must declare itself a hate group

In the footsteps of being able to declare ones sexuality people now entitled to declare if they are human or not, many opt out to avoid being blamed for global warming

Britain leaves Europe, but damn if it isn't hard to row an island, scientists theorize they will be stuck for many a generation.

Horror Villains start Christmas Toy drive to improve their image, Freddy Krueger put in charge of blowing up balloons

Facebook Snapchatted with Instagram, got Linkedin before the Match set fire to Tinder

Hillary discovers rural people allowed to vote, thought all they did was duel with banjos, race cars and have weird looking babies

Media decides it is important, but only if it can make money, leading to more fake news, (the only Truthful headline).

In conclusion when we have left the caves behind us we will be blinded by the truth and unable to read the ballot.

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.
