With all of the political bickering lately, the question “are you better off now than you were four years ago?” has been raised. My answer is yes. I make more, I’ve learned about life, I care about things I didn’t before. Everyone should aspire to be more than they are now. I know that isn’t easy for some, especially me. I hate change but I know I need it. As a country we need to work together toward equality, clean energies, personal responsibility, etc. How in the world can these Republicans running for office try to set us back? It makes no sense. We have to grow and evolve, not go backward and forget our own advancements. My personal goal for the next few months is to continue to lower my debt, work on my social connections, and try to improve my skills at my job. What are your goals for improving your life?
