Why Moving To Canada Might Not Be Such A Terrible Idea After All

They are all nice there, eh?

Why Moving To Canada Might Not Be Such A Terrible Idea After All

Dear American residents,

I'm sure you're as concerned as I am about the fate of the US, with Donald Trump in the lead for the Republican nomination, and with Bernie Sanders trailing right behind Hillary Clinton at this very moment. I don't blame all those people who are now searching "How to move to Canada?" and "Reasons to move to Canada." Thinking about it, it's not the worst place you could end up, once the United States falls apart.

After all, Canada is our friendly neighbor up north and is often forgotten about, but Canada has quite a bit to offer us.

First of all, Canadians are known for being friendly and nice. It's not just a southern thing, I promise. You can find it among Canadians to accept you with open arms as well.

Second, Canadians have universal healthcare. While no system is perfect, the little to no financial burden to Canadian healthcare system allows citizens and residents to live longer and prevent diseases. Along with a longer life expectancy and fewer diseases spread, Canada has fewer firearm related homicides per year than the United States.

The Unites States has a French Fry obsession. In Canada, they offer French fries too, but they top their French fries with cheese curds and gravy and call it poutine. You can also order this as a full meal if you please. Now how awesome does that sounds?

And to contrary belief, you still get all four seasons. The winters may be a little bit colder and a tad bit longer than what you're used to in New England, but you still get a warm and beautiful summer in Canada. And during your painfully long winter, you can find some pretty beautiful mountains for skiing and snowboarding. Then during the summer months, you can do all the exploring you’d like, especially in the beautiful national parks Canada has to offer.

So when this election goes rogue and everyone decides to flee, remember Canada has universal healthcare, no gun problem, friendly people, nice weather, and beautiful sights. It might not be the worst decision you make.

Remember we will accept you in Canada.

P.S. If you don’t find moving up north as an option, we should put Canada as a nominee for the 2016 Presidential election.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
