What's Done In The Dark Will Always Come to Light

Luke 12:3 says, "What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs". Johnny cash sang about this concept his song, "God's Gonna Cut You Down", with the lyrics, "But sure as God has made the day and the night, what you do in the dark will be brought to light".

This reminds me of one of my not-so-shining moments as a middle-schooler. I was gossipping about one of my friends with another girl from school. I was going on and on about this girl. Then I heard in the distance, "Chloe? Hello?" I had pocket dialed the girl I was gossipping about. While I was more humiliated than I could put into words as a 13 year old, the scenario ended up being a great example of this concept. What you do in secret, what you think in secret, what you feel in secret will be brought to the light, if not dealt with.

If you harbor thoughts of jealousy, it will fester into discontentment with your life. If you are holding a grudge against someone and don't take steps towards forgiveness, you will become bitter and cold to others. Feelings of hurt and anger aren't wrong, but when they aren't confronted, you begin to spiral down an emotionally-distraught path that only leads to misery. And it's a lot hard to get off the path once you've been traveling down it for some time. Trust me.

The concept in Luke 12:3 can apply to so many more parts of our daily lives. We must strive to be the person we want to be during all moments of our day. Everything you do, even the things no one really knows, is a component of you are and who you will become. Some things may take longer to manifest into your public life, but sooner or later they will take surface.

Take it from my teenage crisis I shared. Those ill thoughts I had toward my friend turned into a topic of conversation with another person. And unfortunately, those thoughts would end up hurting my friend.

Confront your heart, your mind and your spirit. Always be alert of what you are thinking, feeling and doing in your alone time. It will be brought to light.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
