My Own Inaugural Poem

What I want for the future of our country

My Own Inaugural Poem

It is up to us to make a new world

A world that is safe and promotes peace

It is up to us to engage

And it is up to us to change!

On this auspicious day

There is much to say

As we rise to fix this nations disarray

And hope to god our prayers are conveyed

It is time we come together once and for all

As we honor our forefathers

And nurture our future leaders

We must set a precedent

A precedent of equality and tranquility

Amongst our diverse communities

Our children are looking up to us

To set the course of generations ahead

To bring love, hope, and kindness

Not only to ourselves but to everyone

To every one of all age, weight, height, and skin color

To every one of all religions and beliefs

And last but not least

To every one of all political and social backgrounds

Yes, we have had our setbacks

Yes we have had our faults

From violence to pandemics

And from riots to thousands of civilan deaths

But at the end of the day, we are human

We can only learn from our mistakes and grow

We can make new social norms!

We can make new religious norms!

We can make new political norms!

We can unite our nation once and for all

It is up to us to make a new world

A world that is safe and promotes peace

It is up to us to engage

And it is up to us to change!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
