An Ode To Shrek

Where do I begin? I guess I’ll start by saying that Shrek is probably the most versatile and inspiring actor out there. From ogre, to human, to American hero, Shrek never fails to put a smile on our faces!

Shrek’s career began with his world-renowned, self titled movie "Shrek." From the moment the movie started, I knew that I would be a life-long fan. I will never forget watching Shrek proudly march around his swamp to Smash Mouth’s “All Star;” he didn’t have a care in the world!

As his unique and unorthodox fairy tale unfolded, Shrek introduced us to some amazing characters such as Donkey, Lord Farquaad and of course, Fiona. Let’s just say that when Shrek saw Fiona’s face he became a believer.

Throughout his journey, Shrek made us laugh, grimace, scream and even cry. The "Shrek" series came to a close with the dramatic and satisfying "Shrek Forever After." Although the movie was amazing, no one was ready for this life-changing tetralogy to end. We were devastated, but we all knew that we would be seeing more of Shrek. His reappearance was slightly unexpected; he starred in a short film called “Shrek is Love, Shrek is Life." Now, I definitely would not recommend this abstract psychodrama to those who are under-aged or sensitive to explicit content. That being said, Shrek successfully played an extremely dark and serious role, without breaking character once; how impressive!

Screen acting is not Shrek’s only talent. He possesses an unbelievable amount of skill. For starters, he plays the saxophone.

He skateboards like a pro.

He can walk through walls.

He is also an amazing dancer.

He starred in his own Broadway musical.


His taste in music is on point.

And even though he knows that he's far superior to his other celebrity friends, they still love him.

So Shrek, wherever you are, we all hope that you continue on your path to world domination and keep doing you! Even though we are all "Accidentally In Love" with you, we wouldn't have it any other way.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

335
msra.org

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

4016
God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
