The 2016 Election Told By Parks And Rec

The 2016 Election Told By Parks And Rec

This election is driving me crazy. Between the scandals, emails, plagiarism and just about everything else, America needs a hero. If only Leslie Knope was real and could come save the day.

1. This entire election.

Honestly America, who are we? This election is like the blind leading the blind and choosing the lesser of the evil. Near impossible if you ask for my humble opinion. If Leslie doesn't understand it, there is no hope for any of us.

2. Those emails, though.

There is literal evidence that she is a criminal. But she is running for president. She even made a joke about it by saying how she joined Snapchat and loved that the messages disappeared by themselves. Sketchy Clinton, sketchy.

3. When Trump said he'd date his daughter.

This just ain't right.

4. When Clinton said that her husband has never lied to her.

I mean are you sure? Seems like there was at least ONE time...

5. When Trump made fun of a handicapped reporter.

Not cool Trump, at all. PR nightmare to the max and your team must hate you.

6. The fact that Clinton contradicts herself almost always.

There are over a dozen times where Clinton has contradicted herself during many of her speeches from the present and past. It is so much that all I can do is laugh.

7. When Trumps wife basically stole some of Michelle Obama's speech.

I get that it was just a little section of the speech that was plagiarized, but really? You couldn't even change it just a little. Like a few words probably would've been a little better.

This entire election is draining the life and years out of me. The only good thing that came out of this election is probably all the memes of all the candidates. I think we should all just write in Leslie Knope in the ballot. For the love of all that is sane and good.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
