10 Major Milestones President Trump Has Achieved In Just One Year

It's been a year since Donald Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States, and we are all still alive!

We still have food! And money! And freedom!

We also still have all those people who swore that they would leave if he won, but other than that, it's been a pretty great year. Kim Jong Un definitely hates us more than he did a year ago, but we all know that the media has hyped up that situation way more than what is actual reality.

However, let's not shift the focus. In the last year, Donald Trump has caused more controversy than any other president we have ever had. He tweets with no regrets and little care for grammar, and it pisses people off. He has fearlessly stood up for what he believes and speaks what is on his mind. Donald Trump has displayed his full capability of being brutally honest, harsh, determined, and fully American.

These characteristics have labeled him as unprofessional and far from presidential, but this is what the #MAGA train loves most about The Donald.

But we love him for more than just his unusual personality. We love him for what he has done to make America great again. He has kept his campaign promises, and although we still have yet to see "The Wall," the time will come. It's been quite the year, so in celebration of Trump's one year anniversary, here's a little recap.

1. The stock market continues to hit it's all-time high, reaching 26,000 this past week.

2. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), unemployment is at 4.1%, which is the lowest we have seen in 16 years.

3. Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, filling the vacant seat and marking a new majority for Republicans.

4. ISIS has lost 98% of its territory and over 40,000 of its fighters have been destroyed.

5. Hundreds of regulations in the business sector have been lifted, saving the White House hundreds of millions of dollars.

6. Trump signed a religious liberty executive order that gives political speech freedom to churches and religious organizations.

7. The United States withdrew from the Paris Climate Agreement, ending energy regulations that would have destroyed hundreds of thousands of jobs. Now, the private energy sector can open the door to innovation without harming the taxpayer's wallet.

8. Trump became the first sitting president to publicly address the anti-abortion March for Life in Washington, D.C.

9. In December, Trump signed a groundbreaking tax bill that will lower taxes across the board, increase deductions, and eliminate the mandate to purchase health insurance.

10. Immigration laws are becoming stricter in an attempt to put Americans first and decrease spending on unnecessary immigrant costs and regulations (travel ban, DACA, border patrol, ICE).

For Democrats, this list is their worst nightmare. But for the Trump-loving, conservative Republicans, it's a dream come true. Finally, a president who has kept his campaign promises and won't stop until America has returned to its full potential. He's arrogant and far from perfect, but he loves America with all of his heart, and that's what America needs.

Americans first. Always.

It's been a hell of a good year, Mr. Trump.

Here's to the next seven. And of course - MAGA!

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.

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.
