President Ghani – A disgrace?

The Ex-President of Afghanistan flew from the country yesterday and has taken temporary asylum with his close ministers. Ashraf Ghani took to Twitter and announced that he has resigned from his position as president and had left the country because of the uncertain situation in Afghanistan. Ghani tweeted that he only left the country to avoid all kinds of bloodshed in Kabul. He didn't announce where he went. Still, soon after his statement on Twitter, people started speculations that Ghani is now in Uzbekistan or Turkmenistan.

According to reports, the president's close allies who remain in Afghanistan are calling him a coward, unpatriotic, irresponsible, and a disgrace for leaving his people behind at the hands of the Taliban. Ghani hasn't responded to any of the comments made to him directly or indirectly.

US president on the Afghan situation

It seems like the US president Joe Biden is in shock after the Taliban took over entire Afghanistan in less than a few days. The US has been a big player in the Afghanistan Politics and military situation for many years. After the US president's recent draw-back of the Army, the Taliban started invading capital districts of provinces and managed to take over the country in less than a week, and that too without any opposition from the US-trained Afghan Army.

In the US breaking news today Joe Biden says, in his previous interviews, expressed his views on the power of the Afghan Army. He said, "The Taliban takeover is simply inevitable because the Afghan Army is well trained, has modern warfare and is more in number than the Taliban"!

To his surprise, it only took 75K Taliban to beat an army of 300K in less than a week.

Biden hasn't issued an official statement on the matter but has sent out around five thousand US soldiers to evacuate his people from the new Taliban Territory safely.

Trump Slams Biden

The ex-US president, Donald Trump, held a press conference after the takeover by the Taliban and criticized Biden for his weak strategy and lack of responsibility towards the people of Afghanistan. Also, know that Donald Trump has also demanded immediate resignation from the Biden Government in light of the ongoing events in Afghanistan.

Taliban says, 'We want Peace.'

After taking over the presidential house, the Taliban have requested the people of the country to remain calm and steady as their keen interest is to protect them and provide them with an Islamic State where the rights of every woman, minority, and human being would be protected according to the Shari Laws of Islam. They have also added that they are keen to work with countries from all across the globe but would certainly not let anyone interfere in their country's matters!

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.

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.
