Because there's not enough political tension already

In liberal arts colleges all across the country, students are lining up to vote with the “I’m with Her” mentality. But what about the other side? Shouldn’t we at least acknowledge some of the good qualities of the Trump campaign? I mean, not any of their “policies” or “arguments” (which at this point is just a bunch of sexist and racist words strung together to sound like sentences). However, are these really the most important aspects of a president? If you said yes, let me persuade you with these other outstanding qualities that Trump possesses:

1. The hair

Anyone who has the confidence to pull off this hair-do definitely has the gusto to take on Putin (even if they already are best friends).

2. He's the ultimate throwback

In today’s world, everyone is dying to be as sepia toned and vintage as their great-great grandmas in the 1920’s and Trump gets this. With his racist and sexist rhetoric he embodies a modern day Andrew Jackson (don’t know about Andrew Jackson? Read up here:

See, Jackson gets it.

3. He doesn't hate the gay community (as much as everyone else)

So far in this election cycle, Trump has gone after everyone. From wider topics like immigrants and women, to specific people who are immigrants and women, no one is out of Trump’s reach (poor Rosie O’ Donald). The only exception, it seems, is the LGBT community. Though he doesn’t support gay marriage or gay rights, he has not specifically attacked the gay community during this election cycle (progress?).

4. Trump knows how America should be run

Let’s make America great again. Because when was it great last? When it was founded? During the greatest generation of WWII? During the Civil Rights Movement? When gay marriage was legalized? Who knows? The debate on this wages on here:

5. He started with absolutely nothing

Except a small loan of a million dollars.


So before you go out there and vote, keep these key qualities in mind. Your choices are between a venom spewing Democrat who says whatever will appeal to voters and Hillary Clinton. Choose wisely.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
