We've had so many good times and bad times, so here are the reasons I love her and am glad to have lived with her!

1. We can talk about pretty much anything.

From cats to politics to old-school references, we can talk about anything and everything.

2. She can finesse the fridge pretty well.

One of the most skilled fridge organizers I know who can turn a nightmare into an orderly stack of containers.

3. She is truly caring.

Even if it's just asking if I'm okay or how my day was, I know Lauren truly cares about me and my well-being.

4. She always offers me food.

Just today I was sad that I didn't have any Mochi ice cream left, so she offered me one of her ice cream bars.

5. She is stronger than she knows, and makes me stronger, too.

It may sound cheesy, but we do make each other stronger by sharing our experiences and thoughts with each other.

6. We always get up to the weirdest shenanigans.

We never fail to have some weird times together, but that's a unique bond we share!

7. She always tries to include me in activities.

One time, I told her I was going to alone Labor Day weekend a few years ago, and she invited me to eat with her family (whens she didn't have to).

8. She will randomly come home with gifts.

One day in the fall, she showed up with candy corn flavored kettle corn because I had expressed that I enjoyed candy corn. Take notes, ladies and gents.

9. She knows me very well, and can recognize when I'm having a bad day.

Psychologies

If I seem down or not talkative, she will ask what happened and try to make me feel better.

10. We have a similar sense of humor.

We tend to want to make the other laugh, and enjoy the same type of jokes and pranks.

Nothing but a long listicle for the queen of listicles! I'm excited to continue our amazing friendship!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
