While you are preparing for a day at home, here are a few things you can do so that you won't have to venture out into the freezing cold weather right outside your door.

The weather outside can only be described as one thing: awful! This type of cold should only be found in the deepest parts of Antarctica. While Mother Nature unleashes her icy fury outside, here are a few activities that will keep you occupied so you do not have to put on five layers of clothing and trek out into the unforgiving cold.

1. Binge watch a show...any show

While binge-watching is an everyday staple for many people (especially colleges kids), turning on Netflix on a cold day and watching season after season of a show really hits the spot.

2. Online shop until you drop

Let's be honest, shopping is the best. Nothing and I do mean nothing, can beat it. Why not curl up on the couch, grab that laptop, and get those amazing online deals? If people judge you, just tell them you couldn't go to the stores because it was too cold outside. Nobody can disagree with you on that one.

3. Spa day

Spa days always make for great days, so have one inside and watch outside as the wind blows and the snow comes down. If you know a snowstorm is about to come your way, buy a few bath bombs, a face mask or two, and a few magazines and pour yourself a nice bath and relax. You deserve it!

4. Try out new recipes

Trying out new recipes can always be an exciting thing to do on a day in! It can even be better when you do not have to leave the comfort of your house to go get a ton of ingredients that you might not use again. Apps like SuperCook let you make a list of ingredients you already have and suggests recipes based on those ingredients. So pull out the pots and pans and make something warm and hearty to keep you from freezing!

5. Declutter

Let's face it, we all have way too much stuff laying around our rooms. From the pile of clothes we haven't worn since junior year of high school to the pile of empty water bottles under our bed, there are plenty of things we no longer need. So, why not Marie Kondo-it-up on a cold day and figure out what things "spark joy" to you and which things need to be thrown in the trash.

6. Learn a new language

Out of this whole article, this suggestion might be the most boring. However, you can actually have lots of fun downloading a language app from the app store and playing around with it. Apps like Duolingo allow you to learn multiple languages spanning from Russian to Chinese. With all the hours in a day, you'll be able to learn a new language to curse out the awful weather in.

The winter weather can be something of our nightmares when we think about it. With the nasty winter weather comes potential snow days which can be quite boring when you have nothing to do. So the next time you get lucky and have a snow day, pick a few of these options I've listed for you and enjoy your day at home and out of the extreme cold.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • 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.

  • 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.
