Why I Am Already Sick Of The Presidential Election

All I want is the normal news back.

Why I Am Already Sick Of The Presidential Election

As the presidential elections get started, many people including me, have become annoyed with it. I am not stating whether I am Republican or Democrat, but I will say that neither side has a spectacular candidate. Supporters for all the candidates have gone above and beyond to support their candidate. From the constant news to the obnoxious facebook posts from rallies and tweets, most Americans today are annoyed with these.

Many people as they log onto Facebook see an outpour of political posts and shares of certain candidates. Most of them are either twisting a candidate's words or by shutting them down for their ideas. As I log into Facebook, I see the same things, and I am only in college. I can't determine if I agree with the people or not. So I simply log off Facebook for this reason. Facebook was created to reconnect with friends after college, not to spread your own opinions on what people believe in. Half of the posts that are reposted are only for spreading rumors about candidates. Some of these include Hillary Clinton and what she has said about gay rights back in the 90's, Donald Trump rallies, and Ted Cruz being from Canada.

At this point in time, it seems to be that the election is just a fight between a bunch of high school girls. The candidates are bad mouthing other candidates in rallies, online and on the news. However has the worse things to say about another candidate seems to win the debate or the fight between candidates. No matter where you look Trump has said something ridiculous about all of the candidates. Cruz has come at Trump multiple times. Hillary Clinton has gone after Trump and Sanders. Sanders just seems to want to fight Hillary all the time. I didn't think I was watching the newest teen drama on TV. If I wanted to watch that, I would turn on MTV's Awkward or turn on Netflix and see the endless amount of them.

Finally, anyone who tries to talk about what goes on at rallies for a candidate probably does not understand politics. The rallies are for their supporters. To get more supporters that talk about what they want to do. Trump talks about this giant wall he is going to make. Sanders talks about student debt and making a new economy that will help everyone get an education, affordable medical care, and for human rights. Just because you do not agree with what they say in rallies does not in fact change how they get more supporters. It is for publicity to get more supporters, if you don't agree with it, don't go.

I can't wait for the election to be over. After all of the issues with this election, I would enjoy going back to watching the news with the regular burglaries and state tax things.

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.

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.
