... or in this case, "people."

An Open Letter To My "Person"

To "My person,”

According to "Grey’s Anatomy," your “person” is the other half of you. They’re more than a best friend, and they’re always there for you. It’s very rare to find someone that understands you and accepts you for all that you are, so when you find your "person," cherish them forever and never let them walk out of your life.

There is no one else I’d rather spend my days with. Who needs a boyfriend when you have a best friend? A boyfriend won’t cry with you over throwback Avril Lavigne songs. A boyfriend won’t watch you eat a carton of ice cream without judging you. A boyfriend won’t let you share bras and have backup tampons when you need them. That’s what best friends are for. That’s what your "person" is for.

My "person" is not only the other half of me, but the better half of me. I can turn to them for absolutely everything that happens in my life. Through every tiny event, or any huge milestone, they’re always right by my side. And when they can’t be there, I wish they were, because nothing feels complete without them. And I think the icing on the cake of what really makes our friendship so strong is our different taste in men, but the same taste in alcohol (although some of us can hold that liquor down while some of us can’t).

I wish I could say thank you, but I don’t know how. Saying “thank you” wouldn’t even begin to convey how I feel, and how appreciative I am towards my "person." There are not enough words in the dictionary to string together that can even portray my gratitude.

In a world of so much bad and ugly, my "person" has given me so much love and respect, and I feel like they are a reward from the universe. We’re more than best friends or sisters. We’re basically soul-mates. I am who I am because of my "person.”

Finding your "person" and having that lasting friendship is, indeed, a blessing. Good friends are great pillars of life because they help us stand strong. Friendship can make or break us, and it could lead to outstanding things. It doesn’t matter how often you physically spend time with your "person," but it’s how much you care and feel for one another in good times, as well as in bad times. They’re a great asset in life, and I’m lucky enough to have not only one "person," but two people. Two best friends, two therapists, two supporters, and two partners in crime.

I promise to never leave your life. No matter what happens, “You’re still my person, even if I’m not yours.” – Meredith Grey

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.
