Our First Lady speaking the truth!

One Of The Greatest Speeches Of 2016

I honestly can not think of a woman that can effectively put down another presidential candidate with as much class and elegance as our wonderful first lady. She is known be to such a great role model for young girls all over the world and she has been one of the best first ladies that we have ever had. Her speech slamming Trump is just one of the many examples showing how she can effectively get her point across.

Ironically, a woman of color has the dignity and courage to put Trump in his place. One of the many types of people Trump puts down ends up dragging him down even lower. As Michelle Obama has once said, "When they go low, we go high." Michelle Obama's speech was just pure icing on the cake with the already crumbling Trump party. With more and more allegations building against Trump everyday, the more the world gets to see who he really is, if it weren't already obvious.

Many women have come forward with claims of sexual assault, but of course these claims are only seen as false by some. I believe that we should all sit down and look at the facts and face reality. We can not have a President with the characteristics and values that Trump possesses. Michelle Obama made it very clear in her speech about how much Trump's remarks affected her and how they are affecting what the children of America think.

Trump is a public figure showing children that it is okay to act the way that he does and still be able to get away with it. One of my favorite quotes that Obama said was, "Strong men don't need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful." That quote alone is saying a lot! Michelle Obama has once again shut the house down with her amazing speech. Some people even consider her speech to be one of the top speeches of the year. Without a doubt, I can definitely agree with that statement.

Michelle Obama was able to express her emotions and the emotions of many woman around the world in her speech. She had done it in a way that no other politician has been able to do so honestly and successfully. Michelle Obama is truly an amazing woman at heart and will be greatly missed as the Obama administration leaves office.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
