6 Must-Do's In Orlando, Florida

It's been almost two weeks since I moved to Orlando and there are several things that I have discovered are a must. Whether it is spending tons of money at a park or just going out for a sub, Orlando has a lot of opportunities.

1. Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World. The most magical place on earth. Whether you go to one of the four parks, the two water parks, or one of the 33 resorts, there is something to do for the whole family. The best part about the resorts is, that you don't even need park tickets to visit. So if your in the area for a brief visit, or if you live here, just stop by one of the resorts for a quick meal or to do some shopping.

2. Universal

Harry Potter fan? If so, this is the place to be. Universal now has a Harry Potter World where you could actually visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You can also drink Butterbeer as you walk along Diagon Alley and pretending you are a wizard. Don't like Harry Potter? That's okay too, because Universal also has staples such as the Hulk, the Transformers and the Minions.

3. WaWa

Most people don't know what WaWa is, unless you're from the North or Florida. If you don't know what it is, it is a gas station that sells food. Not just your usual bag of chips and soda, but full lunch and dinner items such as flatbreads, salads and subs. My favorite dish is the macaroni and cheese with chicken tenders on top. It doesn't matter what you get at Wawa, it's an amazing experience, especially when it's topped with a milkshake.

4. Sea World

Despite whatever the news tells you, SeaWorld is a wonderful place to go. Its a chance to see live animals you wouldn't normally see doing things they wouldn't normally do. Its fun for the whole family, and in case you didn't know, SeaWorld now has the biggest roller coaster in Orlando.

5. Pub Subs

If you aren't from the south then you probably don't know what Publix is to begin with. It is a grocery store that is above all grocery stores. Not only do they sell your every day grocery needs, but they also sell the infamous, "Pub Subs." Publix serves these subs in a full sub or a half, and there are endless combinations that you could get. Whether it is a buffalo chicken sub or just a ham and cheese, there is no wrong answer.

6. Ale House

I love a good local bar, and Ale House is no exception. They are spread throughout Florida, but the one in Orlando will always have a special place in my heart. Not only does this bar have a great food and appetizer selection, including loaded french fries topped with chicken nuggets, but their drink prices are what appeal to me. If you want $10 pitcher of margaritas or $10 pitchers of sangria, this is the place to go. You could also get most cocktail drinks and beers for under $5. Ale house also airs most major sporting events on their multiple television screens, but I would get there early, because the place gets packed.

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.
