A Liberal Take On The RNC, Told By Gifs

I was 100% sober the entire time, although I would have loved to make it a drinking game.

A Liberal Take On The RNC, Told By Gifs

As I’ve mentioned before, I love politics. I don’t know why, but for whatever reason, I just do. So this past week — well last week as you read this – was the Republican National Convention. I must admit that I’m very disappointed that this did not end up being a contested convention like I, and many others, had hoped. The Republicans stupidly decided to go with Trump as their ‘candidate’, further proving the fact that this country, the world and 2016 is going to shit. I stupidly decided to watch the RNC because I must get some sort of sick pleasure out of causing myself an unneeded amount of pain. The only thing that would have made this better would be if I could turn this into a drinking game. But I couldn’t, because luckily for me, I’m not 21 yet! Side note: during the next RNC, I plan to make it a drinking game. So my sober and very unbrainwashed by Fox News and all the other bullsh*t Republicans scream to the idiots in this country liberal mind was 100% fully focused and ready to take in what was being said by all the people. Another side note: I regretted this choice right away.

Every single time that someone mentioned Hillary or her emails

Every single Blue/All Lives Matter mention

Seeing every new “Make America ______ Again” theme

When I heard Ted Cruz was making a speech

When Ted Cruz didn’t endorse Trump, basically told the crowd not to vote for Trump and actually earned a very tiny bit of respect

When Ted Cruz ruined the tiny bit of respect that I actually had for him because he tanked his own career and said he couldn’t endorse Trump, because of what he said about his wife and father, and not because Trump is a terrible person.

When Ivanka made a very democratic sounding speech and when I realized the only reason anyone was pretending to listen to her is because she’s a tall, pretty, blonde

When Trump kept talking

And talking

And talking, without mentioning a single plan

But of course he didn’t forget to race bait

When you realize that this country is doomed if he wins

When I remembered that I have to write another article exactly like this one next week for the white feminist convention Democratic National Convention.

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.

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.
