Being awkward is awkward

Congrats, you're awkward

Being awkward is awkward

Ever have situations where you feel like you are watching yourself externally and you notice how poorly you are handling the situation but you cannot handle it any better? Congrats, you’re awkward.

Here are 11 situations you have found yourself in where you definitely could've handled things better.

  1. When you are walking into a plane and have to stop for heavy traffic flow, you are being judged. What do you decide to do? Be awkward.
  2. When you are perpetually late and walk in the classroom full of students ready and eager to learn, and everyone pauses to watch you trudge to your seat. What do you decide to do? Be awkward.
  3. When you are stopped at a red light and feel protected from the world in your safe vehicle, you think you are not being watched so you dig for some gold. Once you get that little bugger, you look up only to notice you are being snap chatted by the stranger stopped next to you. Congrats, you’re awkward.
  4. When you are finally seated in that class you are late to, and you break a little wind, you can’t help but look around to try to pretend to find the perpetrator. Awkward.
  5. When you walk in your dorm after a long, relaxing much-needed shower, only to find a small get together happening when you are only in a towel. What do you decide to do? Flail your arms and say you don’t know how to handle this situation (it’s a coping mechanism, trust me).
  6. When you spill ketchup on your lap…there is no getting around this. Just be awkward.
  7. When you drop the f-bomb in front of someone who definitely shouldn’t hear it, what do you decide to do? Be awkward of course, and handle it as poorly as possible.
  8. When you ask someone when they are due and they say they are not due at all, run away.
  9. When you can’t help but laugh at that extremely politically incorrect statement that no one else finds funny, turn it into a coughing spell. Just kidding, you’re incapable of that because you’re awkward. Congrats again.
  10. When you cut someone off who you realize you know, just pull over and let them get out of sight. This is the WORST because you’re a terrible and awkward person.
  11. When you say no to hanging out with someone because you’re awkward, but feel peer pressured to hang out with the other people because you’re even more awkward, and see the first person at the donut shop where you’re hanging out part two, just handle it as awkwardly as possible and see who cringes the most.

Just own it. You’re awkward, deal with it.

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.
