College As Explained By Eleven From "Stranger Things"

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’ve heard of the new Netflix original series, Stranger Things. It seems as if everyone has either watched it or has had a friend beg them to give it a chance. No matter what, there are some pretty iconic moments in the show that are sure to go down in television history. Most of those moments involve a specific character – Eleven (El for short). And, since college can be an awful lot like the terrifying world of the Upside Down, I thought it’d be fun to see how El would react to it.

So, here is college life as explained by Eleven. Hopefully she doesn’t run into any Demogorgons!

1. When you walk into your first class - and you don't know anyone.

2. When the professor says attendance isn't mandatory.

3. When you can’t fall asleep because the pressure of adulthood is slowly eating you alive.

4. When it's Monday.

5. When someone asks you what grade you got on the first assignment.

6. When you're struggling to get ready for your 8 AM.

7. When you have two tests to study for, ten chapters to read, and a plan to end world hunger all due by tomorrow.

8. When you actually get to go out on the weekend.

9. But then you realize you just tricked yourself into procrastinating.

10. When your entire class fails a test together.

11. When it's nearing the end of the year and you're desperately trying to use up the rest of your meal plan.

12. When you're drowning in stress.

13. When you gotta put your thinking cap on and teach yourself an entire course in one night.

14. Walking into class on the last day.

15. Walking out.

Congrats El, you escaped the Upside Down! Now if only we could find Barb…

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

3589
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.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

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

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.
