2019 must be better.

I Usually Don’t Rush My Years, But 2018 Is Different — I’m Ready To See What 2019 Will Bring

2018. Another year zipped right past you and you didn't even see it flying. Some people are glad it's over and can't wait for a fresh start. Others believe the time is passing by too fast, and wish there was a way to make it stop or slow down.

Personally, I am usually one of those people who doesn't rush their years, but this year is different.

The second the clocked struck 12 midnight bringing us into 2018, I knew from that moment it was going to be a rollercoaster. The hardships encountered this year have been so extreme, I don't think its possible to encounter anything more extreme.

Most people truly want 2018 to be over as soon as possible. Whether it's the loss of a friendship, a relationship, a job, a loved one, etc., everyone needs a new beginning. It is now overdue. Emotions were higher than normal this year, but maybe that is just to set us up for the good of 2019.

2019. What will this year bring us?

The world may never know, but that's the excitement. We have 365 days to find out. Even though we still have a few weeks of 2018 left, I feel like surprises and shockers are over with. A fresh start means an endless amount of unexpected events and excitement.

For me, 2019 screams travel. Whether it's going to graduations, studying abroad or maybe even spontaneous getaways with my friends, there's going to be a lot of big events. I will be turning 20. And yes, it's not as big as 21, but I will be out of my teens so that is kind of a milestone.

Also, I am fortunate enough to buy floor seats at my favorite artist, be a part of Greek Sing at my university and next school year I will be on my sorority's executive board.

What I am trying to say is that if you are like me and want 2018 to be over, think about all the big or small events that await in 2019. It will get you a lot more thrilled for 2019, but don't forget to enjoy the last weeks of 2018 because you can never get time back!

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.
