Greta Sanders

It’s senior year for me, and I’m ready to write some life-changing articles. And by life-changing, I mean that I may try something new at Olive Garden and write a review on it (you can thank me later). You’ll probably see some articles on my cat Pig, and maybe on my dog Dingo, but she and I have a love-hate relationship so that’s questionable. There is no question that I will continue to write articles on the mundane happenings of my life, so I hope you enjoy reading about cheerleading, tests, and feminism. I asked around to find one question that people would like answered about me (and by people, I mean myself because I need to get this written) and the popular vote was:

If you were President of the United States, what would be the first thing you would do in office?

The answer to your question, my legion of dedicated fans, is this: I would adopt as many cats as I could physically fit into the Oval Office and snuggle them as I watched Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen reenact every love scene from Pride and Prejudice.
