Kanye West Is Over It, Ditching Politics And ‘Completely Focusing On Being Creative’

Politics was so last week!


"My eyes are now wide open and now realize I've been used to spread messaged I don't believe in," Kanye West announced on Twitter. "I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!!!"

Once upon a time (a little less than a month ago), West stated that President Donald Trump "is on his hero's journey right now." The two of the controversial figures of today hung out in the White House as the press surrounded them and documented the whole spectacle. West could not contain his excitement from being face-to-face with the President that he gave him a hug while exclaiming "I love this guy!"

The rapper, known for calling out former President George Bush on national TV, was criticized for supporting Trump, who has been unswervingly attacking African Americans. People were not thrilled to see him sporting a MAGA hat, but he had some words to say.

"You know they tried to scare me to not wear this hat," West says. " . . . But this hat gives me a different power in a way."

The notorious hat "made [him] feel like Superman." Though he supported Hillary Clinton, West felt threatened by her "I'm With Her" campaign due to the lack of "male energy" in his life, and the hat serves to prevent him from feeling isolated.

However, since making questionable remarks and even going on a pro-Trump rant on SNL, West has renounced his involvement in politics. He claimed being "used" by Candace Owens when he "never wanted any association with Blexit."

Blexit designed a line of apparel to encourage African-Americans to ditch the Democratic Party.

In a series of tweets, West addressed being responsible for introducing Owens "to the person who made the logo." This said person refused to put their name, according to him. Owens used West's name instead.

West's sudden realization has put a halt on his problematic behavior (at least for now). He aims to put his efforts on creativity, rather than exerting energy on advocating for what he does not believe in.

In that case, we may expect to see him being more involved with music and fashion!

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.
