Listen to The Kid President

A 10-year-old with true creativity and imagination = society's newest inspiration.  

I have a question for all of you "adults" out there. At what point in our lives did we start getting down ourselves? At what point did we start to believe we couldn't achieve something? And when did we start looking at life so complexly? When in reality, there's no reason why we can't think, believe, and be awesome every single day of our lives. A genius thought, right?   

One year ago, I was introduced to a brilliant 10-year-old kid named Kid President in Lisa Laughter's COM 138 class. Kid President, otherwise known as Robby Novak, is a charismatic young boy, a TED speaker, and a Youtube sensation. Robby has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a brittle bone condition, that has resulted in over 70 breaks since he was born. Despite his circumstances, he doesn't let it impact his capabilities or let it define his life. He's an inspiration and is making the world a better place, one video at a time. 

Kid President's videos are simple, comedic and nothing short of entertaining. It's the little things in life that make the biggest difference. Nothing he says is ridiculous or extraordinary, it's just uplifting and optimistic. The content is relatable for people of any age. He's interviewed and worked with President Barack Obama, Jamie Foxx, Jeremy Lin, Beyonce, Kevin Costner, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and everyday awesome people all over the globe. Every Kid President video is sure to leave you with loads of positivity and happiness.  

Maybe I'm biased because I love being able to positively impact people's lives, or because I love to dance! But the way Kid President makes people feel full of joy, motivation, and appreciation for others is how I feel when I'm at WSU. This sense of love and community is exactly what being a Coug is all about! If you're a WSU student, then you've heard the phrase, "Coug Help Cougs." Kid President is about people working together, helping each other, and making the world a better place!  

Don't believe me? Well don't be such a pessimist. Watch Kid President instead. 

  My Favorite Kid President Quotes

  • "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody" 
  • "If it doesn't make the world better, don't do it!" 
  • "You can cry about it...or you can dance about it" 
  • "It's everybody's duty to give the world a reason to dance!"

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.
