9 Ways The OC Applies To You Right Now

Sometimes, you don't really need to look for a new show to watch. Just watch these instead.

No, but in all seriousness, if you want to get to know yourself better, I 10/10 recommend watching this 2003 bombshell. Here are X number of ways to relate the OC to your daily life:

2. But not to fret, Seth Cohen is here to save the day... with his adorably satirical self-deprecation and ever-so-familiar Jewish guilt.

5. Second semester hits, and you kinda like someone. It may not be the Marissa Cooper of your dreams, but the way they turn you down... OUCH. It's okay, persistence is key. You go to the same school, after all! Get it, killer.

8. When she feels like it's too much, it brings you to your breaking point. Turns out, what you tell her is all she needed to hear. "She" being anything (like homework.) Keep grinding.

9. When you realize you made just about the best decision you could have by starting this dreamy series of mediocre humor and deeply intertwined relationships from start to finish. Smile and nod boys, smile and nod.

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.
