10 Good Things That Happened In This Country While You Were Busy Talking About Donald Trump
Nataliya Scheib

The results of the 2016 Presidential Election have left people with all sorts of emotions – ranging from the good, the bad, and the ugly. Every article we read is about the positives, negatives, effects, predictions, opinions, (the list goes on) about the election. Remember when everyone, on November 7, said, “can’t wait for this to be over tomorrow!”? Newsflash… it’s just the beginning. But here are a few other things that have occurred in our country in the past week that are more beneficial and important than reading yet another article about

1. Koala Rescued From Backpack During Routine Safety Check

2. George W. Bush Adopts a Puppy

3. One small sign of progress: the number of women of color in the Senate quadrupled

4. Man Pays Off All Overdue Lunch Fees at Hometown Elementary School

5. Professor Insists Young Mom Bring Her Newborn Son With Her to Class

6. How One Girl Fed Thousands Thanks to an Unusually Large Cabbage

7.Sons Fulfills Oath to Father by Listening to Cubs Game Graveside

8. Janitor Vacuums Sweet Images into School Carpeting for the Kids to Find

9. Mom Starts Packing 2 Lunches After Son Notices Student With Little Food Eating Alone

10. Girl Hailed for Using Google Translate to Befriend New Student

So, yes, this election has scared people, has proven people right, has excited people, but this election does not undermine the fact that we are all put on this world to do amazing things and there are incredible things that are occurring before our eyes each and every single day. I'm not saying to ignore the realities of the election: instead of reading yet another article about how someone’s prediction of Trump’s America or someone’s bashing of the electoral college.. choose to read about George W. Bush’s new Scottish Terrier or the life changing power of Google Translate. There is good in this country! We are more than an election, we are a hopeful people… we are America!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
