My Questions for Donald and Hillary
The Telegraph

This past week, as we all know, was the event millions of people around the U.S. looked forward to, dreaded, feared, were excited for, and/or a mixture of all of these. I am talking about the first of 3 presidential debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. As a 20-year old college student, this election and the debates are very important for me because it is my first presidential election. As one of the millions of young adults who will become the future for this country, it is important to elect someone whose decisions will impact my life for not only the next 4 or 8 years, but beyond that too. Since I couldn't be at the first debate and I won't be able to make it to the next 2 either, here are some of the questions I would have asked them (political differences aside:

Question 1: What are your plans for Job growth/creation for college graduates?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F636109450788842224123439698_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=826&h=d4c52814807032512494b25816b5df60fc2b217a294a11d09956334618bb025a&size=980x&c=2406434398 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F636109450788842224123439698_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D826%26h%3Dd4c52814807032512494b25816b5df60fc2b217a294a11d09956334618bb025a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2406434398%22%7D" expand=1]

As a college student in his junior year, it is time to start considering post-college plans, which means that I will have to get a job based on my area of study (Media Production.) With the media industry being a very popular and competitive industry as an example, what are your proposals to create new jobs to millions of college graduates?

Question 2: Without naming specific names, what are your strategies for combating terrorism and terrorist groups?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F6361094505988463051821546548_636109449465035286-538410566_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=850&h=b7e82be56c8ba7a669075b82ed4f806374318afe9df76b8dc9ad07c49ba8ecde&size=980x&c=2455746844 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F6361094505988463051821546548_636109449465035286-538410566_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D850%26h%3Db7e82be56c8ba7a669075b82ed4f806374318afe9df76b8dc9ad07c49ba8ecde%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2455746844%22%7D" expand=1]

As terrorist attacks continue to occur overseas areas such as Europe and the Middle East, it seems like another one here in the US is inevitable. As it seems anyone can be suspicious of carrying out a gruesome attack, how can we intervene with the affairs of terrorist organizations? Should we do it on our own or with other countries?

Question 3: Hillary, where do you stand on immigration?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F6361094695081960232035328560_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=324&h=7cdbaa866fbbcb15b0aa51ffe04f1cbed51be9885fba4c8364303ae5c1530a8d&size=980x&c=778248166 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F6361094695081960232035328560_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D324%26h%3D7cdbaa866fbbcb15b0aa51ffe04f1cbed51be9885fba4c8364303ae5c1530a8d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D778248166%22%7D" expand=1]

We all know where Donald stands on this but what's your plan as the first female president? Should people coming in to the country and veteran immigrants be kicked out even if they had proper paperwork? If not, what is they best way to assist them?

Question 4: What are your plans for gun control?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F636109471840418374952636883_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=708&h=051b81553f954d5307a88ff254de8b77d255a58233872a8c42875edf0612accc&size=980x&c=1727238229 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F636109471840418374952636883_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D708%26h%3D051b81553f954d5307a88ff254de8b77d255a58233872a8c42875edf0612accc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1727238229%22%7D" expand=1]

This, of course, has been a very polarizing topic in our country over the past several years but what do you think? How can we allow people the right to carry firearms without intruding the second amendment? And what about background checks, mental illness, and laws regarding hunting? Stuff's important, am i right?

Question 5: Donald, where do you stand on higher taxes for the wealthy elite?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F6361094562882764961338796578_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=480&h=2140002c03a0a5675e14a5a3138b3a5f1c199009015d57134f2a642ae22bfeeb&size=980x&c=3620462377 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F6361094562882764961338796578_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D480%26h%3D2140002c03a0a5675e14a5a3138b3a5f1c199009015d57134f2a642ae22bfeeb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3620462377%22%7D" expand=1]

As one of the world's wealthiest entrepreneurs, it is unfair that a person with billions of dollars has to pay very little while we, the working middle class, have to pay more. What do you believe is the best way to make the wealthy, overpaid elite that make up the 1% pay their fair shares come every tax season?

Question 6: What are your proposals for health care?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F636109464645412075-877246071_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=278&h=b58a84c7e1f041ee792bcf0b2814ad9de39e5165afac823ba6b1fdf33ca212aa&size=980x&c=413455375 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F636109464645412075-877246071_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D278%26h%3Db58a84c7e1f041ee792bcf0b2814ad9de39e5165afac823ba6b1fdf33ca212aa%26size%3D980x%26c%3D413455375%22%7D" expand=1]

Everyone has a right to affordable, accessible medical care from a licensed medical professional. It doesn't matter what race, age, gender, or socioeconomic status you are-no one should be denied access to a doctor because they can't afford it. What are your plans to give people the medical attention they need?

Question 7 (Last One): Where do you see this country going by the end of your presidency?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F01%2F636109452648768653-982489216_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=653&h=8a9144eaab4552da2daa4a63939dbd8be213e1114f46f1dd940c106f07a04ded&size=980x&c=2136293368 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F01%252F636109452648768653-982489216_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D653%26h%3D8a9144eaab4552da2daa4a63939dbd8be213e1114f46f1dd940c106f07a04ded%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2136293368%22%7D" expand=1]

Being the President of the United States is not a piece of cake (as much as I like cake.) The whole country will have your eyes on you every day for the next 4 or 8 years. What do you hope to accomplish by the end of your presidency and what do you think your legacy on this country will be?

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.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

5489
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.
