He Will NOT Divide Us

In times like these we must stand together and fight against the injustices.

He Will NOT Divide Us
Business Insider

It's only been about a few weeks since Trump stepped into office, and he's already messing things up. If you don't think that, then you are probably just as blind as he is. Don't believe me? Then let me explain it to you in the clearest way possible.

First, he green-lighted the Dakota Access and Keystone pipelines. The executive orders that Trump signed will benefit oil pipelines. He reinstated the anti-abortion gag rule, and because of this it will increase unsafe abortions around the world (THANKS TRUMP!!!!!). His stupid wall idea that literally no one wants to pay for. Money that can be used in other more important areas like children and veterans healthcare, but Trump is for the people right? The EPA had to take it's website page on climate change down. And my personally favorite, Trumps ban on Muslims.

After all of this and much more, do you really believe he is a suitable President? If anything, he reminds me more of a dictator than an actual President. What would banning Muslims do? Most if not all cases of terror attacks have been made by US RESIDENTS OR CITIZENS. Shocking I know. And if we're banning a group of people because of the religion why don't we ban Christians? The KKK were all Christians and they caused a lot of terror to our country, but right the KKK aren't terrorists... they're white.

Now more than ever our country is separated. It's a constant battle between Trump supporters and those who hate every word he says. There are those who protest and fight for the rights of others, and there are those who believe protestors are "cry babies in need of a safe space", but you know what, I say protest till someone listens. Just because Donald Trump is the President, doesn't mean I have to listen or bow down to him. He isn't a god. Fight against every single injustice that comes from his cabinet. Fight for the rights of immigrants, people with no healthcare, minorities, women, Muslims, and the LGBTQ+ Community. Fight for those who need you most and prove to Trump and the world that he will NOT divide us. We were a country built on protests and fighting back, and if we have to do it again, then we will.

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.
