Why It Doesn't Matter Who Wins The Presidency

Realizing it's the people who actually shape our communities!

Why It Doesn't Matter Who Wins The Presidency

As November creeps upon us, the final stretch to the presidential nomination also will too, making us (America) decide what we're possibly going to do. Will we give in to ignorance or will we lie our way to the finish? Will we finally acknowledge our prolonged issues or will we cover them up like blemishes, acting as if they don't exist, but even when the facts are laid in front of us they are still dismissed?

As if there wasn't even a presidential candidate that actually cares about what's really happening here in the states; or worse, the citizens of this country have forgotten what even makes America "great" because it isn't the president but the people themselves, its called democracy we literally do do it for our own health but lately it seems we've been ill in our will, leaving our future in the hands of those unworthy. I must ask do these candidates really care about our failing environmental status or do they just want the glory? Or better yet is the value of a black life truly equal to those who try to drag us down or are we voting for the candidate who instead flips the scrip saying our lives are more comparable to clowns because clowns lives matter too in this failing social system that I see no candidate trying to fix (because they can't) it's we the people who must grant our own wish.It's we the people who can actually make the difference.

So long after the election when people are saying that's why I didn't vote for so and so, I'll just be sitting here laid back saying I told you so because it doesn't matter who is elected only who is connected which should be the American people standing together to make change, leaving no person undetected!

Not leaving it in the hands of people who just want to reign, bragging how they're not affected because it isn't Hilary or Trump who will teach your kids the significance of peace and equality, it'll only be their views that we are subjected to, hoping for America to become more like them, leaving you forgetting to be you! But I'm praying you know that we create our own path of freedom, it's something that we can choose, not blindly following behind candidates that only bring us the blues! As people we can choose to be better or we can choose to be worse, so it doesn't matter who wins the presidency as long as America remembers her worth!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
