The Women’s March Is A Revolution That Keeps On Growing

The annual Women's March is taking place this Saturday in various cities throughout the U.S. You cannot imagine HOW excited I am. When this march first started the day after Trump's inauguration, I was in awe of the amounts of people who came together to support this cause. I am still in awe that it continues today.

The Women's March is a place for people of all types to come together in solidarity and support of one another. I have never been but I have heard that the people who go are inspired and ready to take on our racist and sexist government.

However, the Women's March has been involved in some controversy this year. The Democratic National Committee is one of the biggest funders of the march. They have contributed to the march during both years. But this year, the DNC has pulled out as one of the donors due to anti-semitic claims. Even though the DNC pulled out, they issued a statement in support of the march.

"The DNC stands in solidarity with all those fighting for women's rights and holding the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers across the country accountable. Women are on the front lines of fighting back against this administration and are the core of our Democratic Party."

Even with the loss of the DNC's funding, the support from the people still remains. Millions of people gather in these cities no matter the weather or the time. The movement is not just going to last for a couple of years. This will go on forever until people get the equal rights that they deserve. I am honored to be a part of this generation who is leading the movement. I can't wait to march with my fellow women this Saturday.

The fight will never end; it's only just begun.

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.

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.
