The president’s spending spree

Disagreement is an understatement.  How else do I characterize my thoughts on a second Obama term than deeply, deeply troubled?
 


Snow-maggedon, again

With every major storm, there is some sort of emergency to alert the masses. With winter storm Q, it was just the same. Why the hysteria for a storm that has been known about for days or even over a week? We heard the severe intensity of the storm, how massive it was going to be, what supplies were needed. It was like we never experienced a storm before. Some might have bought into the hype a little too much, preparing to be snowed in and running to the store and stocking up on survival supplies.
 


Who runs the world?

Beyonce is a liar. She asked in her song, "who runs the world?" She wants you to think that the answer is girls. But l know the truth. Beyonce runs the world, and I am totally fine with it.
 


Awards season is upon us!

The Academy Awards, Hollywood's most pretentious night, is just around the corner, and it seems as if the battle for best picture will be one in which America's most honest president and Ben Affleck duel head-to-head.

Life in Omaha everything and nothing exchange student imagined it would be

Studying in the U.S. seemed like on impossible dream to me. I thought I never would visit it. It was in my imagination to come. The dream that I wanted is now real.

The most attractive thing to me is the culture, such as how people deal with you, what behavior Americans don't like, and what popular foods are. I have seen in America all these things.


International student orders take out, best pizza in his life

In the U.S., people like to get their food by take out from restaurants.

The pizza was the best one I ever had in my life.
 


U.S. education different than China

The education systems of China and the United States of America are completely different.


Breaking News!

The front page of Omaha.com, and the breaking news from the Omaha World-Herald Saturday was that Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy made 2,300 phone calls to four women. I read the article, looking for some indication why I should care that he called these women, and after reading the entire article, that question was never answered.
However, I do know exactly how many phone calls he made during what time frames to different women. I now know more about Mr. Sheehy's phone bill than I know about my own.
