10 Worst Things You Get While Trick-or-Treating

Trick-or-treating is the best when you ring the doorbell, the door opens, and the stranger greeting you at the door hands you a king-size Hershey bar. However, there are those few houses that you come across throughout the evening that don't place the best treats in your Halloween bag. Here are 10 weird items some people receive instead of the traditional candy bar.

1. Apples

Halloween is no holiday to be promoting healthy eating habits.

2. Hand Sanitizer

With all the bowls of candy that you are reaching into throughout the evening, you are bound to come across a few germs. What better way to sanitize than trick-or-treating for some hand sanitizer?! Kidding. I will wash my hands when I get home. Give me your candy.

3. Crackers

I'm neither sick nor about to have a piping bowl of soup, so, no thank you!

4. Hotel Shampoo & Conditioner

Some people collect the travel size shampoo and conditioner bottles that they receive in hotel rooms. I can supply myself with my own soap. Thanks, though.

5. Soda

Once soda gets tossed into my trick-or-treating bag, it's either leaking by the end of the night, or, when I go to open it later, it explodes.

6. Granola Bars

ONLY 4 grams of sugar?? Unacceptable.

7. Random Pamphlets

I will be disposing my chewed up Dubble Bubble in your pamphlets.

8. Toothbrushes

Those cheap toothbrushes that you get at the end of a dentist appointment do not suffice for Halloween treats, FYI.

9. Raisins

If it's not rotting my teeth, it's not a Halloween treat.

10. Whoppers

And this one just speaks for itself.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • 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.

Amanda Hayes
  • 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.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
