Summer break is ending! Schools are out, and shops are loaded with back-to-school supplies. Here are some things to do to have a little fun before your days of freedom and enjoyment are completely over. Let's make the most out of what's left of summer break!


1. Go Thrift Shopping

Thrifting is a fun way to find cute and vintage pieces without breaking the bank! While it's become a huge trend now to thrift at mainstream stores like Goodwill, it's not difficult to find underground places to shop which only sell secondhand vintage clothing.

2. Go Hiking Or Camping

Some fresh air is exactly what you need before you're locked in your room doing AP Bio homework till 3 am. Hiking is not only relaxing to do alone but is also insanely enjoyable with friends or family. Plus you get to watch a beautiful scenery!

3. Deep Clean Your Room And Closet

There's no better feeling in this world than having a clean room. Deep cleaning your room can not only keep you organized and prepared for the coming school year, but it can also help you find some hidden gems you thought you lost. It's a nostalgic experience because you're basically rediscovering your childhood, you may find old things that you loved when you were younger. It's the perfect way to start a new beginning before attending school.

4. Go Visit A Body Of Water

There is so much you can do at a body of water like swimming, fishing, boating, tubing, sunbathing, and kayaking. Since it's so versatile, everybody is guaranteed to enjoy a day at the lake. You can be super adventurous and go jet-skiing, or if you prefer easy-going activities curling up with a book near the lake shore is just as good.

5. Read A Book (For Fun)

I get it, you're saving reading anything till school starts, but you'll be surprised to know reading can actually be a really fun and calming hobby that almost everyone enjoys, even If you swear reading just isn't your thing. You just have to find a book or genre you know you'll enjoy.

6. Try A New Food

This one's kind of silly, but still worthy of doing before school starts. Go and try a fruit that's relatively unheard, like durian or jackfruit. You never know If you like it unless you try it, right?

7. Make A Ton Of Face Masks

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.

  • 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.
