Open Letter to the Trump supporters

Open Letter to the Trump supporters

It's time to tell the truth

So as of March 30th, Mike Pence had broken the tie and Planned Parenthood has been successfully defunded. Another victory in Trump's political machine. Let me start by saying how thankful I was that the bill to repeal Obamacare was canceled, even though there are rumors they are going to try again. I love how the Trump supporters are so insistent on taking away the health insurance from those who can't afford it.

You really are great people... *sarcasm*


Okay, lets cut the crap right now!! Cause I want to understand the mentality of those who put this man in the White House!

First of all, Trump's phrase was to "Make America Great Again." But all he has done was make me ashamed to be American! Anything that might have been "good" about him as President hasn't shown at all.

On top of banning Syrian refugees and attempting to repeal Obamacare. Congress finally defunded Planned Parenthood. Women have lost their right to their own bodies, contraceptives and screening tests. How wonderful is that for you? Church and State are separate and here was obviously a religious motivation behind this. None of you have been able to give me a solid, non-metaphysical argument to justify criminalizing abortion.

Why did you vote for Trump? Why do you think everything that has happened is great? Does taking away women's right to choose make America great? What do you call a man who walks into a mosque and kills muslims who are doing nothing more then practicing their right to religious freedom? Is he a hero or a murderer? Does taking away health insurance from people who can barely afford it, make America great?

You obviously knew this would happen if you voted for him. So either, you have no morality, you're a white supremacist or you're just the dumbest person on the face of the earth! And yet you cannot explain to me what there is to celebrate about Trump! You cannot justfiy everything he has done. You can't justify taking away women's rights, you can't justify turning the other cheek to a genocide occuring in the Middle East, you can't justify kids chanting at Latinos to "Build a wall." America has reverted back to the White country it's already been, and you are happy with it. And I still need to know WHY?

Explain and justify every action Trump has taken and we will talk. Thank you.

An Open Letter To Every Girl With A Big Heart, Except When It Comes To Herself

Because it's so much easier to love everyone around you before yourself.

They say the key is that you have to "love yourself before you can love anyone else," or before "anyone can love you."

For those who deal with mass amounts of anxiety, or have many insecurities, that can be an extremely hard task. It seems much easier to tell your friend who is doubting herself that she looks great in that top than to look in the mirror and feel the same about yourself. It is much easier to tell your significant other that everything is going to be OK than to believe it will be when something goes wrong in your life. It becomes easier to create excuses for the ones around you than for yourself, and this is because you have such a big heart. You want those that you love to be happy and worry-free, yet you spend nights thinking about everything you have on your plate, about what you did wrong that day, fearing if someone in your life is mad at you, believing that you will never be good enough yet convincing everyone else that they are.

You are the girl with the biggest heart, yet you can't love yourself the way you care for everyone else in your life. There are many reasons that you should love yourself, though, and that's something that everyone around you is willing to tell you.

You're thoughtful.

Before doing anything, you always consider how it is going to affect those around you. You don't want to do anything that could hurt someone, or something that could make someone mad at you. It does not take much to make you happy, just seeing others happy does the job, and it is that simple. Because of this, you remember the little things. Meaningful dates, small details, and asking someone how their day was is important to you, and it makes those around you feel important too. You simply just want the people that you care about to be happy, and that is an amazing trait.

You're appreciative.

You don't need a big, fancy, and expensive date night to make you happy. Whether it's a picnic on the beach or a night in watching a movie, you're happy to just be with the person that you love. You appreciate every "good morning" text, and it truly does mean something when someone asks how you are. You tend to appreciate the person that you're with more than the things that they provide and for that, your sincerity will never go unnoticed.

You have a lot of love in your heart.

Every "I love you" has meant something, just as you remember the smallest moments that have meant the most to you. You remember the look in your significant other's eyes when they told you that for the first time. You remember the smile on your best friend's face when you told them that everything was going to be OK and that you would always be there. You remember the swell of happiness your parents felt when you decided to surprise them with a trip home one day, and you thrive off of all of that love.

You don't give up on the people you love, even if they have given you a reason to.

It is a foreign idea to just drop someone from your life, even if they betrayed you. You try to look at their mistake from every stance, not wanting to provide an excuse for them, but to give them another chance. Not everyone deserves it, and that is something that you learn along the way, but you feel good in the sense that you gave them a chance even if no one else would.

It's OK to not love yourself all the time. It's normal, and natural to stand in the mirror and think about everything wrong. And it's OK to love other people, even when you can't feel the same about yourself. But your big heart is why you should love yourself. There are so many reasons that you are a beautiful person, and the people that you spend all your time caring about feel that you have so much more to offer the world, and yourself.

So, next time you think about what you don't like about yourself, remember what makes you special –– the size of your heart and all of the love in it, and then share that love with yourself.

Spring Wardrobe Essentials For Every Girl In Their 20s

The sun has finally made its return and after 6 months of bitter cold, and it's time to spruce up your wardrobe.

62

As Robin Willams once said, "Spring is nature's way of saying let's party," and this shows in all the faces walking downtown smiling in the sunshine. Winter's talons have finally begun to lose hold over the weather here in State College, and students have waited long and hard for the sun to reappear. Nice weather seems to breed productivity as I look through my wardrobe and realize it is time for a season spruce up. I already wrote an article on what to pack for spring break, but here are spring items for everyday style that are a must:

1. Floral prints

Floral prints are the embodiment of spring. As the flowers make their grand entrance, you can too.

2. Tiny/cat-eyed sunglasses

Sunglass trends are all over the place right now, but I find something so cool about the tiny sunglass trend especially when cat-eyed.

3. Sundresses

Button-up sundresses are everywhere, and longer sundresses seem to be the move for a more classic look.

4. Skirts

High-waisted anything is a mood, but personally, I love warm weather because I can get back into my skirt obsession. My favorite skirt trends are button front/zip ups. Pattern wise, light vibrant/pastel plaids and stripped skirts are always fun.

5. Strappy platform sandals

Woven platform sandals can dress up a casual outfit, such as a pair of ripped jeans or enhance a look meant for a nice dinner or going out with friends. They are a great purchase if you're looking for sandals perfect for any occasion.

6. White sneakers

Everyone knows how hard it is to keep white clean, so if you have ever wanted a nice pair of white sneaks, spring is finally the time to make a move. The Nike Air Force 1'07 were originally launched in the 80s, but like most current trends, right now they are being brought back for a retro vibe.

7. Levi jeans/shorts

Levi jeans have always been a staple, but they are sure to be seen everywhere as one of spring's 2019 biggest trends with particular emphasis on their torn high-waisted jeans and high-waisted shorts.

8. Wide-brimmed fedoras

You hear the word fedora and cringe at the image of a hipster who tries way too hard. However, the fedora has been unjustly judged as it's not the fedora's fault your ex who claims to be a 'troubled artist' owned one. Take back the fedora this spring as the wide-brimmed version creeps its way back into your heart (hopefully unlike your ex). Also, don't be afraid to grab yourself a vintage rock t-shirt while you're at it.

9. Jean jackets

The jean jacket has to make it on this list because there has never been a spring/summer where it wasn't cool to own one.
