Yes, I'm The Girl Who's 'Always Studying,' No, That's Not A Bad Thing

It isn't the worst thing in the world.

Yes, I'm The Girl Who's 'Always Studying,' No, That's Not A Bad Thing

“Come on, let’s go out,” your friends shout at you from down the hall, “you need a break from all of this work!” You are so tempted to leave behind your worries and stresses of the workweek and enjoy a great night out with your friends, but that little voice in the back of your head is reminding you of all of your assignments and readings that are due in the upcoming days. That little reminder makes you turn around and re-enter your dorm room, where you will be found for the remainder of the night completing your work.

However, no, being known as “the girl who always studies” isn’t the worst thing to be labeled as.

You know for sure that there are girls out there that are known as far, far worse. But, there are those thoughts that swarm the back of your mind, like “what if they stop inviting me out?” or, “if I really skip studying this one night, do you think I’ll do well on the next exam?”

Overthinking when it comes to studying all the time is endless, and all of your friends know that you very simply want to do well. And, if they’re truly your friends, they’ll understand. But you, just like them, want some time to relax; it's all about finding that balance.When you’re the girl who always studies...

it means sacrificing nights to stay in and focus on what you’re really at school for: yourself.

It means doing work in the wee hours of the morning and the late hours of the night.

It means constantly putting your work before nights out, girl’s nights, football Sundays, and more.

It means trying to find a balance between your schoolwork, extracurricular activities, friends, family visits, and everything in between.

It means making yourself the best student you can possibly be right now, so you can achieve all that you can in the years to come.

No, being known as the “girl who always studies” isn’t the worst thing in the world. And yes, I do it for me — and ONLY me.

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.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
