The 2016 Presidential Election As Told By 'The Office'
Huffington Post

Alright, you fellow "The Office" fans. Our show may have ended a while ago, but it's still completely relevant in our every day lives. In fact, here's The Office as the 2016 presidential election.

1. Your Facebook feed.

Honestly, I love politics. I'm not the person to disregard them or vote for someone I don't know much about. However, I get on Facebook to like cute pictures of my cousins and laugh at funny things. I enjoy talking to people and keeping up with groups I follow. But my Facebook feed is Hillary, Hillary, Trump, boo Trump and boo Hillary with the occasional Pokemon thrown in there. And trust me when I say, I'd much rather everyone be talking about their latest Bulbasaur than arguing over an election we can't really change. So you can take your arguments...

2. When Donald Trump casually mentioned his father's small loan of a million dollars.

Not much to say about this, Michael Scott said it (and everything) best.

3. The third-party candidate.

I can't really keep up with Creed or the third-party candidate. Creed just kind of shows up out of nowhere sometimes, but I never really disliked him. I am rooting for the third-party candidate to do something great just like I was for Creed, and hopefully, they'll be at least half as patriotic as he is.

4. Trying to keep up with the Hillary email scandal.

Hearing the reports and comments on her dangerous email carelessness made me want to do just what Angela is doing, take some pills because that was a headache.

5. Listening to Trump speak.

Regardless of your political beliefs, I think we can all agree that Trump should maybe not say everything that comes to mind.

6. Trying to decide who to vote for.

This year's election more so comes down to who you view as the lesser of the two evils. I've spent so much time learning about the other party's candidate this year, simply because it's not a good idea to blindly vote, especially not this time around. In the past, it's been easier to decide based off of my political party. This year, I'm not so sure.

7. The people who you'd rather have elected than this year's candidates.

Kevin might not be the smartest, but I'm not sure about this year's candidates either. A vote for Kevin is a vote for America and cookies. A lot of cookies.

8. Accepting that you probably won't like the outcome of the election no matter what.

It seems like this year that there's really no good option. There's no guarantee what will happen after this. People have voted and made their choices, and those who voted otherwise aren't happy. But, it is what it is.

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.
