Watch: How The Entire World Reacted To Joe Biden FINALLY Being Declared As President-Elect

On Saturday, November 7, 2020, Joe Biden was predicted to become the 46th president of the United States after a tumultuous election cycle. This brought relief to the Democratic party and their supporters and grief to the Republican party and supporters of Donald Trump.

Despite the election being only in the U.S., people across the world shared their feelings about the win.

When the Associated Press called the race, Manhattan exploded in cheers from apartments and households. 

Members of the far-right Proud Boys, known for supporting Donald Trump, protested in Oregon with other supporters, calling to "Stop the Steal" of the election.

In Chicago, near Trump Tower, the streets were filled with Biden supporters celebrating.

In Arizona, many Trump supporters were unhappy with the prediction, believing their leader's claim of voter fraud in the state and protesting outside the Maricopa County Elections Center.

In Wilmington, Delaware, where Biden's campaign headquarters resides, celebrators came out to listen to Biden give a victory speech and were treated to a fireworks and drone show afterward.

Trump supporters in Michigan stood outside their Capitol building claiming victory as the race was called for Biden.

In DC, the streets around Capitol Hill was packed with celebrations and supporters putting up signs on the fence surrounding the White House.

Finally, world leaders from Australia, Japan, Britain, Israel, Venezuela, and other nations gave their congratulations and support to Biden and Harris.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
