7 Binge-Worthy TV Shows to Watch Over Spring Break
How-To Website

While Spring Break is a time for many people to vacation, party, and have fun outside of the home, there are many of us who will be using Spring Break to either catch up on our TV shows or start (and finish?) completely new ones. For the latter half of spring breakers, I have compiled a list of seven binge-worthy TV shows for you to check out while you're home.

1. New Girl (2011-present)

If there is one show where I can see myself in almost every character, it would be this one. Zooey Deschanel plays the wonderfully adorable and quirky Jess Day who becomes the roommate of three guys: Nick, Schmidt, and Winston (technically Coach in the first episode, but whatever). This is a sitcom, so I guarantee you will be guilty of the "one more episode" phenomenon that leads to an entire season in a day because the episodes end too soon.

2. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2015-present)

Don't be turned off by the title my friends, because I almost was and I am so happy my initial reaction was wrong. This show is hilarious and somehow unlike any show, I've ever experienced. Rachel Bloom plays the "crazy ex-girlfriend" who was working hard at her New York job, making dough but it made her blue. One day she was crying a lot and that's when she decided to move to West Covina, California giving her brand new pals and a new career. It happens to be where her ex Josh lives (but that's not why she's there *wink*) and so on.

3. Supernatural (2005-present)

This has been one of my favorite shows for a long while and I think everyone should be able to experience it because, I mean, look at those boys in that picture above. Right? Saving people and hunting things is what Sam and Dean Winchester do and man, they do it well. Warning, though: you will get emotionally attached quickly. Oh, and there's the whole violence and gore thing, but really that's not that bad.

4. How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014)

Ted just wants to settle down and find his wife...and it takes him nine seasons. Ted and his friends Lily, Marshall, Barney, and love interest Robin embark on misadventures narrated by Ted to his future children (son played by David Henry aka Justin Russo from Wizards of Waverly Place). This show is hilarious and feel good (until the last episode...) It really is a must watch because the characters are fantastic and so fun to watch.

5. Grey's Anatomy (2005-present)

If you've ever heard someone say "Grey's is life" and thought they were exaggerating, they sadly were not. It is so easy to get caught up in the drama and lives of these characters. There is a large cast and with that, there is a lot of turnover with the only remaining characters (as far as I know) are Meredith, Alex, Bailey, and Webber. So, convert to the Grey's fandom and watch a medical drama that is definitely more drama than medical.

6. The Crown (2016-present)

There's only one season of this currently available on Netflix, but those ten episodes are completely enthralling. This show is about the life of a young Queen Elizabeth II when she first becomes queen of England. I may be partial to this show because I love Matt Smith (aka Philip, Duke of Edinburgh) with every inch of my heart. However, Elizabeth herself (Claire Foy) is incredible and a wonderful cast choice.

7. The Office (2005-2013)

Last but certainly not least on my list is "The Office." Office manager Michael Scott tries his best but often fails miserably. This show is great, however, I would recommend skipping the first season (something I rarely ever do) because it's just not good. Second season and on is pure perfection, though. Plus, the romance between Jim and Pam is goals.

All of these shows are currently available on Netflix, so if you have access, you have no excuse to not watch these. Also, side note, isn't it weird how most of the best shows started in 2005? Whoever was in charge of television that year did a stand up job. Have a fun and TV filled Spring Break, you all.

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.

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
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.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
