Finding Holiness During The Wickedness

No matter what religion or how spiritual you are, preserve the holiness in holy week, and remember that your quarantine is indeed a luxury.

Passover starts today and Easter's this Sunday. It's hard to believe that the holiest week of the year is the expected apex of deaths from COVID-19. The cruel irony is a necessary wakeup call. As we strive to flatten the curve against the invisible enemy, we also have a duty to practice the power of grace amidst the wickedness.

Pay your dues with prayer

Try to take a break from Skype City, at-home workouts and quarantine walks to make time for the spirituality we've all been neglecting. This is the most sacred, yet predictably most tragic week of the year. We often forget how prayer can shine beams of hope on even the darkest situations.

And selflessness

Besides offering our faith and grace, we can play our parts from the comfort of our quarantines. For those of us who aren't healthcare workers saving lives on the frontline, we have an obligation to give back. We can donate money, non-perishables, blood and do virtual volunteer work. Do it for the soul and do it for the cause. Our selflessness could save lives.

Faith wins against fear

Faith always wins against fear. A reminder for when we catch ourselves drifting away from our spiritual lives during the pandemic. For when the news resembles a scary movie more and more each day (I have to prepare my body for the heart palpitations David Muir's World News Tonight gives me). For the lost souls, the warrior souls fighting their sickness, and the pure souls of healthcare workers who are all face to face with the invisible enemy.

No matter what religion or degree of spirituality you are, preserve the holiness in holy week, and remember that your quarantine is indeed a luxury. Don't waste it.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
