Heartbroken Over Bachelorette

Poor Peter!

As I was sitting on the couch Monday night, I was fully invested in the season finale of The Bachelorette. I enjoyed this entire season, especially because I really liked Rachel and hoped she’d find the love of her life. As we got to the final few episodes, I was rooting for Peter and Dean to be the two men proposing at the end.

I was shocked when Rachel sent home Dean before Eric, especially after she told Dean she loved him at his home town visit. Even though I really liked Dean and thought he was adorable and funny, I did not think he would be a suitable partner in marriage for Rachel.

Skip forward to the final episode, after Eric was sent home, the audience and viewers at home were enthralled in who Rachel would pick as her future husband. We watched Peter and Rachel go on their date, but we were all waiting for the final, dreaded argument about whether or not a proposal is necessary to confirm their love and commitment to each other. My heart broke as I saw both Peter and Rachel with tearings streaming down their faces because they could not see eye to eye on such an important issue. In the end, it was this argument that ended their beautiful relationship.

I did not even know that they officially broke up until Chris Harrison announced that Peter would come out and speak to Rachel for the first time since their breakup. Watching the live portion with Rachel and Peter was almost harder than watching the breakup. Peter was still clearly hurt and in love with Rachel, while Rachel was acting cold and dismissive towards him. Even though she ended up being engaged to Bryan, I think that the breakup with Peter deeply affected Rachel, which is why she was so cold to him. I think she was shielding all the emotions she felt the moment she saw him again.

I am still processing the end of The Bachelorette, but I wish Peter all the best in his future romantic relationships, and that Rachel is sincerely happy with her choice.

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.

What you did sounds dumb to me

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.
