10 Nice Ways To Terrorize Your Roommate So She No Longer Wants To Live With You Next Year
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJr4yyugIRE

It's the time of year where everyone is looking for roomies for next school year. If you've ever had a roommate you know it's not as easy as it sounds. Before I came to college I was convinced I would be the perfect roommate. I'm sure if you were to ask my roommate now she'll probably tell you different lol. I haven't decided if I want to continue living with my roommate next year so I thought to myself, "what could I do to make her not want to live with me next year.." I then decided to attempt to terrorize her in the nicest way possible. Here's what I came up with...

Set your morning alarm to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."

Giphy

This sounds simple enough, but when you wake up to "A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh" every day for a week, it can get to you.

Vacuum your room at 8am.

Giphy

If they ask why you are vacuuming so early, tell them that you get your best work done in the morning. In my case she was just happy I was actually cleaning for once so maybe this one didn't work so well...

Offer to get them food, but then get their order wrong.

Giphy

Depending on how picky your roommate is, they will either be super annoyed or grateful they didn't have to spend their dining dollars on dinner. Sometimes it's the smallest mistakes that make the biggest impact.

Buy a fish.

Giphy

In this case, I have a fish of my own in my room. My roommate love him. However, I have a moss ball she detests. So I make sure to have the moss ball on the side of the tank that faces her bed. :)

Make noise and a lot of it. 

Giphy

Everyone has different sleep schedules. The key to this step is to learn your roommate's schedule and make yours the exact opposite. She/he wakes up at 10am for class? Well guess what, they are now going to wake up at 8am when you "accidentally" slam the door too hard on your way to class.

Hit your snooze button 10 times before you finally wake up.

Giphy

Okay, I actually do this without the intention of annoying my roommate. This is probably the easiest way to get under your roommates skin. Because your roommate can't force you to get out of bed or to wake up. That's the beauty of college my friends.

Find them a girlfriend or boyfriend.

Giphy

This might be a little bit of a challenge but it's a win-win for both of you. The best way to get some space and to make your roommate happy is by finding them a significant other. They will not only have a new buddy but they will hopefully spend every second of the day with them, so they'll never be in the dorm.

"Accidentally" use their things without permission.

Giphy

Oh! This is YOUR mug!?! I'm sorry...I swear it looks exactly like one I have. But don't worry I'll make sure to put it in the sink and forget to wash it so you have to wash it yourself if you ever want to use it again.

Say you're hard of hearing and listen to everything extra loud.

Giphy

This one is pretty easy to pull off. Say you misplaced your headphones or maybe that they ran away from you. Then proceed to listen to everything extra loud. Your new favorite genre of music is 90s punk rock and you have to listen to it every morning before class to pump yourself up. Sorry that's just how it is. *shrug*

Hoard their Netflix account.

Giphy

If you have a communal TV in the common room and your roommate is logged into their Netflix then BINGO you're set. Park yourself in front of that TV, literally 24/7. Don't bother using the couch; just sit criss cross applesauce in front of the TV and enjoy a big bowl of popcorn. Binge-watch show after show and say that you are doing an "experiment" for your research class on how many shows you can binge-watch on end in one semester.

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.

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

An open letter to my father
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.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

3127
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
