Stop treating Donald Trump like a viable Presidential candidate

Stop Trump 2K15

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m about as liberal as it gets. My vote for the democratic nomination is firmly in favor of Bernie Sanders, even if I would really like to see Green Party Candidate Jill Stein be sworn into the White House. I grew up in a very small, very conservative town, so I’ve seen a lot of people posting about Donald Trump.

Now, anyone with half a brain can understand why we wouldn’t exactly want a man who was once personally in debt for One Million Dollars, but once you attach a celebrity face to that number, people want to vote him for president. That’s the scary thing about Donald Trump—he has the most name recognition out of any single candidate, and there’s a Bush running.

Name recognition plays a huge part in electing a political candidate, because while many people will do the necessary research and pick the candidate that is best for their views, there are a lot of people who will walk into the voting booth in November and won’t have a clue who they should vote for.

That's why unless there’s a miracle and the American public wakes up and realizes that we shouldn’t have the man who feels so entitled that he said, “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected,” he might actually snag the Republican nomination.

Trump has also commented that if his daughter Ivanka weren’t his daughter, then maybe they would be dating. Can you spell m-a-j-o-r—c-r-e-e-p, because I sure can.

Trump also believes that Global Warming is a hoax, and that we shouldn’t vaccinate our children. If he were president, his views on those subjects could literally end the world in melted ice caps full of smallpox. I wish that I were being dramatic, or that I were making a mountain out of a molehill, but voting in Trump as president would be just as bad for veterans as it would be for women and poor people.

Can we just appreciate that Trump said that, “[John McCain is] a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” CAN WE JUST?? This guy is not only offensive to the more liberal of our country, but is openly insulting veterans—which is usually something everyone tends to avoid.

There was also that cute little incident which wasn’t that cute when Trump called the entire country of Mexico rapists, and what he has repeatedly said about immigration reform: “I would build a wall like nobody can build a wall… Nobody can build a fence like me.” That’s really funny coming from Whitey McWhiterson, who comes from a family of immigrants.

Can we just please stop taking Trump seriously as a presidential candidate? He’s crass, rude, and he's even such a doofus that FOX NEWS is angry at him. HE doesn’t have viable plans for America, and so we should stop giving him the time of day.

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.
