Trump's Presidency Through The Eyes Of A Business Major

I approve this presidency.

Trump's Presidency Through The Eyes Of A Business Major

As you know by now, Donald J. Trump is our new president. From a business major perspective, I congratulate him. It isn't easy for a businessman to get into the White House. Therefore, I'm very happy one of our own is running this country. However, some of his decisions have been questionable; while others were pretty good.

Since I'm a business major, I started investing in stocks early. Because of the Trump presidency, the stocks are going insane recently. I'm getting a 1.25 percent return on my dividends and you know what? I couldn't be happier. This means that with all the executive orders Trump is signing, it's bringing jobs back to the country that the Democratic party got rid of. The economy is doing amazing. Even though I'm an independent/alt-left and didn't vote for Trump, I really hope these situations stay the same.

Speaking of jobs, yes, they are returning. It's great for everybody because with these new jobs, I project that the unemployment rate would drop even more than when Obama took office. However, what I'm kind of on the fence about is the pipeline executive order that he signed into action. It's going to bring in jobs; that's a plus. However, the question remains, can we do it without harming anybody?

The debt is something that I can't predict, but I project that the debt will decrease. His idea of a heavy border tax is ten fold. I embrace the idea. The only problem I have is that if people start finding out about the border tax, would the amount of imports coming over the border decrease? I think yes. If that's the case, then we might be running into a problem.

Let's talk about the wall. You knew this was coming. First, let me start off by saying that the wall is a very stupid idea. If we really want to save money, plus get jobs on the market, I propose that we increase the border security. I'm serious when I say "hire 1,000 more people" because that's how many more job openings that would create. The wall is too much money. I don't think we should be responsible to pay for it and trust that Mexico reimburse us because I don't think we can trust Mexico to do that. With that being said, this will be a good business investment for everybody, if we just open up jobs on border security, with basic requirements.

Overall, the presidency is a 50/50 split for me. It's good, however, I don't agree with some of Trump's executive decisions. Will he be a good president? Yes, he will, but he has a lot to learn. He's still new in office, has room to grow as an individual, and as a politician. Instead of criticizing his options, maybe we can all work together to find an alternative way of running this country.

It's a group effort and if it's the time to unite, it's now.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
