Why I'm A Millennial That's Voting Trump

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump knows what he is talking about.

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is not afraid to say what he thinks. He has big plans for the country and there are a ton of people ready to support him. This past week, Trump officially accepted the Republican nomination.

In his closing speech Thursday, Trump said "I am the law and order candidate." His speech was about justice and what is deserved. His whole speech was about justice and equality. He said he will work to insure that all of our kids are treated and protected equally. While the media wants to focus on racism and the divide between cultures, Trump used his speech to focus on closing the gap and making sure everyone is treated equally with the same opportunities. For those of you who say he is against homosexuals, he even made sure he gave a full spill on how he will do everything in his power to continue to protect the rights of the LGBTQ community.

And of course, to finish up his speech he threw in one of his favorite topics: ISIS. He plans on working with Israel to eliminate the massive threat we are facing as Americans. He plans on suspending immigration from any country that has been compromised. There are many people against this idea, but personally, I believe this is a great idea. Trump said "I only want to let people into our country who will support our values and love our people." I completely agree with this. Immigration is not the problem. The problem is the immigration system that is in place. There are terrorists slipping in the cracks and endangering the lives of millions of people in the United States.

His slogan is "Make America Great Again." To me, this means make America strong. Make America the country that, historically, other countries did not want to mess with. It means make America the country where someone dreams of coming to make a life for themselves. America was not built on the idea that we are entitled to sit on our butts all day and live off of handouts. America was founded on the idea of hard work. Hard work that earns you a living to support your family.

The idea of hard work no longer exists. You work all week just to have half of your paycheck go to taxes. What happens to the taxes? They are used to give money to those who are too lazy to work for their own money. NOTE: I am not saying government programs are all bad. The idea they represent is great. I am saying they are extremely misused. It has come to a point where many people abuse the system so they do not have to work. There are also situations where the programs make it hard for someone to break free. I am simply trying to make a point that if you are not trying, you do not deserve any government assistance.)

So, love him or hate him, Donald Trump knows what he is talking about. He knows business, economy, and politics. He is not a politician. He is not afraid to speak his mind. He may offend you, but you know what he is saying is the truth (or at least what he believes is the truth). You do not have to attempt to read between the lines and try to decipher the hidden meanings.

Yes, I am a millennial. Yes, I am voting Trump.

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.
