There are some people who diligently plug in their headphones when they go for a jog or study in the library. They browse through radio stations in their car, hoping to find the right tune. They know the words to most of today’s popular songs, but neglect to think beyond what baselines will make their car speakers vibrate the most.

There are those of us who don’t just appreciate music; we live for it. Music guides us through both our best and worst days, whether we need an uplifting power anthem, an angry rock song, or a sentimental ballad. We believe that it is acceptable to listen to music at almost any time of day. We know the words to today’s pop songs, some classic 80s tunes, Broadway soundtracks, and so much more. We don’t just sing in the car; we dance and harmonize. Being a music nerd is the best unpaid full-time job you will ever have. There are numerous and clear differences in how we express our music nerd tendencies, but here is a list of statements that the majority of us can relate to.

1. There are certain songs that give you literal chills.

2. You sing to the radio as if it is an actual performance.

3. You harmonize with the vacuum, microwave, or other appliances.

4. You know the name of a song after listening to it for only 3 seconds.

5. You listen to the music channels on TV instead of watching shows.

6. There has been at least one time in your life when you were so entranced by your music that you blocked out whoever was talking to you.

7. You hear a song by a new artist that catches your attention, and you immediately listen to every song on their album.

8. A lot of your stories begin with the phrase, “One time in choir,” or, “One time in band…”

9. You appreciate the acoustics of specific places.

10. You will always have a soft spot for Disney and/or High School Musical soundtracks to the point of leading a spontaneous sing-along with your friends.

11. When you are having a conversation with a friend, and they unknowingly quote the lyrics of a song, you immediately begin to sing that song.

12. A summer without an outdoor concert is incomplete.

13. Sometimes you are overly critical of a person’s vocal or instrumental techniques.

14. You spend a good portion of your free time making playlists. A playlist, after all, is a form of art.

15. You respect everyone who has perfect pitch.

16. You know music is a necessity for long road trips.

17. You analyze song lyrics just as intensely as you study a textbook.

18. Sometimes you make musical observations out loud, such as recognizing an accidental, which confuses your friends.

19. You have woken up at 3 AM and decided to write your own song right then and there.

20. You constantly search for fellow music nerds.

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.
