If I Were President

Here is what I would do.

If I Were President

I waited 19 years to get my turn, my right to vote for the next President of the United States and my choices are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Who says if you host a reality TV show you can be president?

Yes, the first female president would be pretty cool, but not Hillary Clinton. Never Hillary Clinton. Not Donald Trump, definitely not Donald Trump. Therefore, I decided that I would be a better president. Here is what I would do.

1. Lower the price of state colleges.

Yes, I know that making college free is a bad idea and that we would end up paying the same amount of money in taxes. But making the price of state colleges cheaper would make everybody happy. Even if scholarships were made more accessible, people would be able to afford college and wouldn't have to pay off loans for the rest of their lives.

2. Lower the drinking age.

The drinking age in Europe is around the age of 16. They have significantly fewer problems with people around the age of 19 and 20. People over there are taught by their parents to drink socially instead of binge drinking. It is a lot safer having a lower drinking age.

3. Make college textbooks free.

There is no reason to be spending $200 on a textbook for a class you're probably already paying $600 for, at least. Making college textbooks free would be incredibly beneficial to students who are struggling to pay for college.

4. Get our citizens from around the world.

Any countries that are publicly holding American citizens, would be told that they have 48 hours to release them and send them on a flight back to the United States. If they don't, Americans would be coming to get them.

5. Declare war on ISIS.

This is something that really needs to be done. ISIS needs to be recognized as a terrorist group and they need to be stopped. Countries around the world need to join forces and defeat ISIS once and for all. Citizens need to not be afraid of ISIS and not be afraid to leave the country or go to major cities.

6. Cease funding.

Any nations that are supporting terrorist groups will no longer be receiving funding from the Unites States. It is not okay that nations that support terrorist groups have ever received funding from the United States.

7. Throw a personal party in the Oval Office.

I would lock myself in the Oval Office and jump for joy. I would sit in the big chair, jump up and down on the couches, and lay on the carpet that has the seal of the president in the middle. I would look at every single thing in the Oval Office. I would throw a personal party in the Oval Office because I am president.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
