My Thoughts On the Election Results

The 2016 Presidential election was very interesting. In my opinion, it was the option of picking the lesser of two evils. However, it seemed as if people were not ready to have Hillary Clinton as the 45th President of the United States.

To a certainty, I can understand as to why due to her track record. There are people who are very pro-Trump, but not as much excitement for a pro-Hillary. From hearing and seeing conversations about the election, many people call for the abolition for the electoral college. Hillary Clinton may have won the popular vote by a small margin, but one has think on how Trump won the votes of the electoral college.

Donald Trump has won the majority vote in the states that he has won, thus taking the electoral votes from the state. It is simple, he won more states which is very surprising. As a person who voted for Hillary Clinton, I am concerned about the future of this country with Donald Trump as the president. He has helped create a bigger divide between the country. His victory has caused numerous protests and hate crimes and rhetoric across the country. It's not Trump that I fear the most, it is his followers who spit hate in the name of Trump and his Vice-President Mike Pence who I feel are really damaging. Trumps's victory does not mean the end of the world as I feel like he probably would not make a 2nd-term.

I think it is the time that more people should get involved in politics if they want to see change. Personally, I think Trump's victory was a wake-up call, and lets me know that America is still not ready for change.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
