My eyes wandered to the 50 workers, teens and women, but mostly grown men: all Latinos, some dark skin and others light skin like my-self. Their tired red eyes rose as the sun does in the morning. Ten minutes later we entered the bus. Still a bit tired I began to close my eyes as my body moved with
Trump nomination has me eating crow. There's a lot of things I can easily point out to that might of cause Hillary chance of winning. But the damn Electrola College is a complete BS. Al Gore lost to President Bush in 2000 with the popular vote, the same way Hillary lost to Trump. Essentially every vote doesn't count. That's completely asinine! Democrats lost the House, Senate, White House and apparently the Supreme Court. Yup! we are in herd of trouble.........

I wasn’t raised in the happiest and privileged place in the world yet I didn’t let my adversities throw me down to the ground. I appreciate that Columbia is like a plane. It contains people of all walks in life and educational backgrounds, but what matters most is not where we from, it is that we are all reaching the same destination, the destination where we all become open minded, educated adults.

I would tell them that it doesn’t matter how you look at your age. I know that technology is becoming very popular and that everyone has one, even the 6th and seventh graders that probably don’t need an Iphone6 yet, but that it doesn’t really matter how much make-up your wearing when you get to middle school. Barely any middle schooler around 6th and 7th grade wears make-up. Also, you don’t need to be the most popular person in school. I know that when I was in middle school, I wasn’t. And I still had an awesome middle school life. You can still make friends and go out and hang out with them. It is important to start making friends, if your one of the shyer ones, don’t worry.

If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
