I'm Not Okay With Being Coddled

Aren't we adults?

I'm Not Okay With Being Coddled

When you hear about going to college you hear that these are the year you will remember for the rest of you life, or it's the best time of you life, where you're free to make decisions on your own. Your away from home, away from mom or dad telling you what you can or can not do right? Wrong!!!

At least for the case of the bubble. The bubble is a term used for a " security blanket". Don't get me wrong I Love the University I go to, and everything they stand for, but there comes a time and place where we have to be treated like adults. If you have a female who has majority male friends or vise versa, but is prohibited to just go to the room of the opposite sex and talk, play video games, or just hang out, I'm going to feel like I'm being treated like a baby. I never had rules like that being home, I understand everyone in college is there to get there education, then start there lives, but forming bonds, and connections with people is apart of growing up.

If you have people who are continuing to be coddled when they head out into the real world, there going to crash and burn. I feel as if some sort of Trust should be there, until I give reason to do otherwise. I can understand that we are a Christian University, but if I'm just trying to fellowship with my brothers in Christ why should there be limitations? The fact that I can not even have my own brother who is 13 stay in the same room as me is an incredible issues, that's my blood really. I know that the school doesn't want to tempt us, but that's all apart of growing up.

You need to make mistakes so you can learn from them and make better choices next time. We learn this thing called self-control. Not every male friend of mine wants to sleep with me and I definitely don't want to sleep with them, so what's the problem. This bubble system is going to crash and burn, and is ultimately crippling the students. You have to dress like this, do this, eat this, don't act like this, make sure your in by this. NO!!!!

If someone is dressed in a certain attire and they get fired because of it, or don't get the position they want because they are acting a certain way, there going to realize quickly what they have to do to change, but the company will not be holding your hand because of it, why, because as adults we are expected to act like one. Grow up people seriously.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

2149

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
