Good Job America

With elections around the corner, I just wanted to give kudos to all nominees and show a little humor.

Good Job America

So 2016 has been pretty interesting... if I do say so myself. We have the clown epidemic, Harambe died, and our politicians are crazier than ever. Though, I have to give the political nominees props for even attempting for such a stressful job to inherit. Think about it, the President has one of the most stressful jobs in the country. He or she has to be the scapegoat for America. They get the blame for our country’s problems, they are continuously ridiculed by the United States citizens that voted for them, and they are in the spotlight for the rest of their lives. Their dirty secrets are spilled to the United States citizens, then the citizens judge them like they do not have secrets themselves. Whatever... grow up America.

Now, I do not necessarily agree with political standing on situations. I like my rights the way they are and I would appreciate it if there were some improvements to make American progress. But this is not what this blog is about. I want to appreciate them for showing America that everyone makes mistakes. We, as American citizens, are so quick to judge people by their pasts even when the person is no better than you. I bet you have things to hide...yet, they are not letting this stop them from trying to get this job. They are showing us that they are human! Humans are not perfect, we are not God, but we try and just like our parents said... “Don’t give up when you fail.” The nominees are perfect examples of this! They keep on going through the gray and grim.

I don’t appreciate sexism, racial fear, or destruction of the public record. I do, however, love that more Americans are looking at the political standings, though. This election, we have not just two parties running but much more. I believe that that is a great improvement to America. We shouldn’t be so set in a certain idea but to look at everything in broad perspective. The craziness has made more people look elsewhere for what they want. This might be one of the most interesting votes to see what happens.

This race, no matter how tragic it seems, is showing younger generations that more people can run than just the two main parties. I believe that this is enlightening our children and young adults to broaden their perspectives and not just look at what their parents like. Too many people do not make choices for themselves and depend on their parents' views. Well, now with all the progress that America is trying to make and all the old views being shattered, we have young adults looking outside the box to find a cure for their own thoughts. I love it.

Full disclosure, I did not mention who I am voting for nor did I tell society not to vote for people. I am telling society to look at the bigger picture and that I am happy more people are looking at who they are electing into office. I am trying to make light fun during these dark times people believe we are in. I love the United States and I am very proud to be called an American citizen.

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.
