End of Semester As Told By Game of Thrones
Start writing a post

"Game of Thrones" Season 8 has begun. And so have the end of semester scaries. As we approach final exams, group projects, and deadlines, we're crawling to the finish line. Each Sunday is the only thing keeping us together during this tragic time. The weeknights may be dark and full of terrors, but us college students have more in common with the GOT characters than you think.

Finals are coming, my friends.

1. Telling myself I have so much time before finals makes the scaries a little easier to handle.

*chugs*

2. Wait, next week? You're telling me finals are coming... NEXT WEEK?

Well, alright then.

3. Scrambling to get my crap together in a week like:

I can't find my lit textbook. WHERE IS MY LIT TEXTBOOK?

4. Finals haven't even begun and I already feel like a train wreck. A live shot of my Mom talking to me when we FaceTime:

True.

5. Hmm... to socialize or to study? Or both?

At little relaxation wouldn't kill you, now, would it?

6. No, I need to focus. Time to go study.

Yes, ringing that bell of shame high over my head. Time to crack down and focus on the task at hand.

7. My brain after studying all night:

You're on your 8th hour studying. It's 11:00pm. You go to do another math problem and you get it wrong, again. Your brain is all about doubting you at this point.

8. Finals day is here. Did it get cold out or is it just me?

*heavy breathing*

9. I get a grip of myself and head into the exam feeling all the power.

Let's do this thing.

10. Me reaching my last final absolutely exhausted and soulless:

I want to go home, too, Rob. I want to go home, too.

11. Your semester is finally over. HALLELUJAH. So, what to do now with all those notebooks and papers? Well:

Burn them all, indeed. What a great cleanse after the hell of a semester you just endured.

Congrats. You're free at last.

Or are you?

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.
