*Please note the satire*

Sources report that, for the first time in history, the next presidential debate in this unprecedented election year will be in "rap battle" format.

Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will face off onstage in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday, October 19, 2016. This time, however, both candidates will be required to present their positions and responses in lyrical form.

Trump announced on in a series of tweets Friday evening that he would "absolutely bomb" Clinton and that this debate will be "even worse than Benghazi." He also claimed that he is experienced enough to go up against the long-time politician in this format, as his high school mix tape was "fire" and Clinton has "no experience whatsoever" with the style.

Despite her inexperience, however, Clinton believes she is fully prepared to win (and win over undecided voters) in the unconventional format:

"I expect to school Trump. You could even say I'll 'trump' him. I've been studying the the work of the greats for weeks now," Clinton admitted in a recent interview. "Pitbull, Soulja Boy, Nicki Minaj....I've been listening to Drake for days on end. It's inspirational. Just wait until you hear my tribute to Prince. In my opinion, he may have been the best rapper of all time, and I really wanted to pay homage to that in my work for the debate."

In response to Clinton's comments, Trump stated, "Prepare? She's actually preparing for this? Well, let me tell you, I'm going to freestyle. And it's going to be the best freestyle of all time. I guarantee it."

Hours later, in the middle of the night, Trump added, "I've got some tricks of my own up my sleeve. I'm working with the best people. Let me be clear: I don't want to give anything away, but my speech is going to be feat. someone whose name rhymes with Ru-pac. I'm in the studio with him right now. We're releasing our breakout album at midnight after the debate."

In addition to her preparation for the debate, the Clinton campaign has also announced that it will soon publish their new MySpace page.

"We want to keep up to date with young voters," stated Joel Benenson, Clinton's chief strategist, at a press conference on Sunday. "We really need to reach out and be where the millennials are. It's all about being current. We're also conducting polls on Survey Monkey and working with Apple and Samsung to create Hillary Clinton emojis."

According to sources, Clinton and Trump plan to meet in secret at Caesar's Palace after this Wednesday's debate for drunken karaoke, gambling, and possibly an angry make out session. An additional debate has also been scheduled for Monday, October 24. This will be the final debate and will consist only of the two candidates mud-wrestling in a pit behind The BBQ Shack in Dothan, Alabama.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
