16 Alternatives to our Current Presidential Nominees

We Need Another Option
No Hold Backs

As a millennial who is voting for the first time in a presidential election, I'm pretty disappointed with my options. Instead of whining like a stereotypical millennial, I have taken the liberty of giving the parties a few alternatives for their nominees. I'd rather have any of these wonderful people for president, and I'm sure you would too.

1. Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation. This is a no brainer. She's smart, she's driven, and she would do whatever it takes to keep us on an upward track.

2. Sam and Dean Winchester from Supernatural. Feeling unsafe? Think there's a clown loose on campus? Think that the world is ending? Look no further for the two people who can literally SAVE THE WORLD.

3. Professor McGonagall from the Harry Potter series. A lady who could keep the peace, keep us focused, and keep us humble. We have some seriously high crime rates and judicial system issues, and I feel like most people wouldn't want to be in trouble if she was in charge.

4. Lady Gaga. Everything she does is "out of the box", and that's what everyone likes about Donald, right? It would be a much better situation if someone who was so incredibly dedicated to their music was in charge. Everyone would benefit from consistency dedication.

5. Zombie from The Walking Dead. He had real purpose man. There was not a lot going on up top, but he kept pushing forward and didn't let anything stop him.

6. Jed Bartlet from The West Wing. He's a stand-up guy, who's willing to do anything for his country. No one is perfect, and he's okay with admitting to that. At the end of the day, he wants to do the right thing for our country.

7. Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy. We would be able to make real strides on healthcare reform and education. Also, we'd all know safety rules for any situation.

8. Galavant from Galavant. He sings. He dances, and he's cooler than prince charming. He's really aware of the world around him and does everything he can to meet his goals. (Also attractive.)

9. The Sloths from Zootopia. Doesn't matter how slow things are, as long as they're correct. "Slow is smooth and smooth is fast" certainly applies in this category. Having a president who's happy to be thorough is a positive in my book.

10. That kid on the Ellen Show who kept saying "apparently"... He's cute, loves his grandad, and is really youthful. America could definitely use a bit of that.

11. President Sophia Grace and VP Rosie! They're fab, sassy, and all about doing your own thing. Putting two women in the white house would be pretty great, and it may turn into the White House with Pink Sparkles.

12. My dog. She's loyal, sweet, and doesn't take no for an answer. If she wants something, she'll get it somehow.

13. This alligator from Florida. It's a little crazy, but there's a big chance that the entire United States could become Disney World. I'm more than happy to take my chances with that.

14. Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada. HELLOOOO! This is exactly the type of no-nonsense lady we want. She would run such a tight ship, and our fashion world would take over for sure.

15. Andie Anderson from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. More like "How to Reduce Student Loan Debt in Less Than 10 Decades"! She's spunky, not afraid to try new things, and willing to go a bit out of the box to get what she wants.

16. Gabriella Montez from High School Musical. The soft-spoken girl who appreciates an arts curriculum integrated with a STEM curriculum. She loves to read, and boy do we need to rework our education system.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
