Taylor Swift Announces Political Agenda

I was just fine with, "Love Story."


This past week, Taylor Swift announced that she will be getting more political in her album to come.

If you grew up in the era of T Swift, Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana), and Selena Gomez dominating pop culture of the early 2000s, you are probably just as disappointed as I am.

The Taylor Swift that used to write the love ballads we would all sing along to before we even had our first kiss are being replaced to fulfill a political agenda that so many have already tried to shove down our throats.

When will Hollywood separate their political beliefs from their talent?

When asked about it, Swift claimed that she vowed to torch half of her fan base. Is that what we have turned to? Are we so polarized that these young talents don't want fans that have different political ideologies than them?


Swift had stayed out of politics up until the most recent midterm elections. According to my research, "She encouraged her 112 million followers to vote for Democrat Phil Bredesen for the Tennessee Senate, and also for Rep. Jim Cooper, a Democrat who was running for re-election. Her post was also highly critical of Republican Marsha Blackburn." https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/taylor-swift-political-undertones-2020-election

Her Instagram post read as follows, "As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me." https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/taylor-swift-political-undertones-2020-election

Well, what is more, terrifying than a bunch of Hollywood elitists that have the power and voice to influence a sea of voters?

What people fail to recognize is that these actors, actresses, singers, and songwriters are in their own little bubble on fire out in California and should not have any say in politics if they aren't out there physically trying to make a difference.

Stick to what you know best, T Swift, for the sake of middle school girls everywhere.

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.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
