An Ariana Grande Song For Every Major

Ariana Grande is one of my personal favorite artists, but I truly feel that her music can be appreciated by people of all ages and backgrounds. Whether it's her Nickelodeon era singing songs for Victorious and Sam & Cat, or her new boss babe album Thank You, Next, she is able to appeal to all audiences. One group I feel she particularly appeals to is college students. Her songs are always playing at college parties and dorm halls, and I feel that students from all majors can find a song by her that resonates with what they're going through academically.

1. Business- Successful

This song is all about being young and successful, but still having fun while you do it. It's great for business majors who are just starting out and looking for some ~motivation~ that someday they can be young and successful just like Ari!

2. Nursing/Pre-Med- Get Well Soon

On top of the literal meaning of helping patients get well soon, this song talks about your "system [being] overloaded" and feeling "disconnected" from the world around you, which is more than true for students going into the medical field and spending hours studying in the library while their friends are all out partying!

3. Education- Fake Smile

As a teacher, it's your job to always be smiling and happy around the kids, even when you don't FEEL happy. Teachers go through a lot of ups and downs in their job, but Ari's statement "it's getting hard for them to shock me" probably pertains to most teachers after a few weeks on the job. And no matter what, they maintain that smile to reassure their kids that everything is a-okay.

4. Science- NASA

Sometimes you just want to get as far from your work as possible, even out of this universe. As Ari says, sometimes you just "need space" from it all (no pun intended). And besides, you can always relate it to the astronomy lesson that you're bound to get at some point in your science career.

5. English- Imagine

English majors need a lot of material for their papers, and sometimes, reality just isn't enough to make a great paper. Ari talks about "imagin[ing] a world" with the guy she loves where they're able to be together "like the movies", so basically she's writing her own fictional short story.

6. Math- Problem

This is definitely a throwback song of Ari's, but it's still a classic that everyone can enjoy. Her line "even though I hate ya, I wanna love ya" is probably pretty accurate after hours of doing work in a subject they love. Math majors have a lot of problems to solve, and once their work is done they feel "no weight on [their] shoulders" anymore.

7. Psychology- Just a Little Bit of Your Heart

Psych majors are always trying to read into other people's emotions, and sometimes they just want you to "tell [them] how [you] really feel" even though they know it isn't that easy. Even if they can't figure out all of your emotions, they'll be satisfied with just a little bit of them.

8. Dance/Fine Arts- One Last Time

Performing anything- whether it be instruments, dance, or singing, can be totally exhausting. Even when your professor says that you only have to perform the number one last time, it feels like the hardest task in the world after practicing for hours. And even still, you might still "feel like a failure" because it wasn't as perfect as you anticipated.

9. Engineering- Best Mistake

Engineers have to make so many mistakes before they can get something ~just~ right, and often times it can feel like a "total waste of time". But, in the end, you have to hope that each mistake was the best one yet, and that it will eventually lead you to something perfect!

10. Government & Politics- Side to Side

Politicians are often forced to take sides on a wide variety of issues, and reading the news reports on them can sometimes feel like the political parties are pulling you side to side trying to prove that they're the correct ones. In the end, you can find yourself "[there] all night" and "all day" and still not knowing which party you side with.

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?

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"

2543
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.
