The Effects of Corrupt Government

Where is America really headed?

The Effects of Corrupt Government

I see the people around me, living their daily lives, not caring. The most outspoken ones hushed in fear that their actions will be deemed too daring but the truth dared to be revealed. We had no choice (both of our fears exposed) by a new president, a new government where basically anything is a go! Where public schools will purposely be unequal in both education and money measures, and protecting the climate will be replaced by other so-called humanly pleasures, such as sacrificing the Earth and its resources in order to make more money. But the man who thinks he will be rich without the trees is real funny, okay with environmental waste, fraud, and abuse this isn't Ferngully, we will create problems bigger than an ozone hole.

Yes, this man will die rich but impoverished in spirit and soul, unable to become a diamond for he only seen his profit in coal, which is a nonrenewable resource less vital than the air that we breathe, the water we drink, and the food that we eat. You'd think pesticides would be illegal but these are the laws that congress keeps, or should we call it for what it is; legislation constructed for our destruction. We're convinced our government cares because they cover up all the bad with Mc'lovin, our foods contaminated and our minds filled with lies. Our health clearly disregarded because veggies somehow cost more than french fries but I refuse to be deep fried in the evils that make this country "great". I refuse to be standard when the standard nowadays is to hate thy neighbor, the motive to conquer and divide. Realizing that the difference between where I'm from and Flint, Michigan is more than just clean water but an everlasting pride to help those who are unlike ourselves. But until man can do that he will never acquire enough wealth, can't you see where the problem unfolds? Choosing to hate rather than love is basically chasing fools gold.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
