What is America

Where Did America GO?

What is America

How is it going, universe? My name is Brianna, it is very nice to meet you. I'm here to talk about what is right and what is wrong with the world today, right now. Especially in our beloved country that is known as the United States of America. Well, so far we elected some bigoted person who thinks he knows everything but doesn't know anything. Maybe something about money, but not about running a country. But, we should just give him a chance, right? Well, sure, why not since we've already elected him president. We can't let him divide us just because of our different views and the color of our skin. We can't let him do that, no. We must stand together and go against together. We all maybe different colors and have different social views, but we can't keep going against each other. That is what's wrong with society today. There is always a race between everyone. I may be white, but I'm not racist. Just because I'm white doesn't mean I'm racist. Just because you may be Mexican or African-American doesn't make you ghetto or an immigrant. Our country was founded by immigrants, and we took land from the Native Americans. Well, not us, but our ancestors did.

We were all divided back then because of segregation and America having a race problem. America still has a race problem, and most people are thinking that there isn't. Well, Betsy and Randall, there is a race problem. There are many other problems as well, but I will mention them later. There is a race problem with Muslim women getting their hijabs ripped off their head just because they are the wrong religion. Hm, odd, does that sound related to the race problem? Yes, it is related to the race problem. They aren't the wrong religion. They live in America, a nation that is suppose to be free to pray to whomever your religion prays to, a nation that isn't suppose to take rights away from people, and a nation that is suppose to give equal opportunity to everyone who comes to live here. But, everyone thinks Christianity is America's main religion. It isn't, hun. America doesn't have a set religion. Nor do we have a set race. America is filled with so much culture and diversity, and no one wants to praise it and get along.

This Isn't America, this Isn't America at all. What is America anymore?

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

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.
