Dear America,

In just a matter of a few short days, either history will be made, or the apocalypse will be upon us. Our long, national nightmare will finally be over. With the polls tighter than ever before during this campaign, the future of our country is dependent on our decision and action to get out and make a difference.

All the scandals, late-night talk show bits, Saturday Night Live parodies, outrage over what "he" said, and so-on will be toned down at least. Still, after listening to what both candidates and the media have been feeding us, it is clear that this election truly matters. Our vote can be a decision as important as what we want to do for a living, who we will marry, where we will go to college, what house we should buy, and etc. It really is a big deal.

But what happens when this whole election process is finally over? What comes next? Yes, I know, the inauguration in January, but it seems so scary if things don't turn out the way we hoped. We must embrace ourselves for a whole new era of American politics in the late 2010s, something totally different from the last 8 years.

I assume everyone is anxious and ready to get this election over with. I know I am. On November 8th, we pray and embrace. On November 9th, we will wake up and realize that we are about to live in a whole new America. The "New. S. A." as I should call it. This election is one of the most important in our lifetime, and I hope that we are all ready for the day it is all over.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.
