10 Things To Look Forward To For Summer 2018

With the semester winding down, Summer 2018 is right around the corner. It's almost time to trade in your textbooks for your bathing suit and get ready to experience the best Summer yet. There are so many things to look forward to for this upcoming summer.

1. Weekly trips to the beach.

In the Summer, there's never an issue surrounding what to do each day when all you need to do is put on a bathing suit and hit the beach. Lounging out at the beach is always bound to be a day well-spent. And it never hurts to stay until the evening and watch the sunset over the ocean.

2. Outdoor country concerts.

There is nothing better than lawn seats at your favorite country concert. Parking lot tailgates beforehand, whipping up some burgers on the grill, surrounded by all of your closest friends, there is no better way to spend a Summer night.

3. Going for a run outside.

When you can finally ditch the treadmill and get your daily workout in outside on a beautiful day, that is when you truly know that Summer is here. There's no better workout than running around the lake in the center of town or through your all-time favorite park.

4. Ice cream for dessert every night.

Sitting outside at a picnic table, ice cream cone in-hand, watching the sunset, what could be better than that? Dinner in the Summer is not complete without a nightly trip to your favorite ice cream shop for dessert.

5. Family barbecues.

Hotdogs, hamburgers, multiple glasses of sangria, and spending time with family, what more could someone ask for? After being away at school, there's nothing quite like coming home to a Summer barbecue filled with home-cooked food and family.

6. Adventures with your home friends.

After being away from your home friends for the past few months, coming home to them in the Summer is such an exciting thing, knowing that you all are in store for a Summer filled with crazy adventures and memories. I can't wait for the endless beach trips and bonfire nights.

7. Family vacations.

As everyone is back from college and finally on the same schedule again, Summer is the perfect season for family vacations.

8. Attending baseball games.

Get a bunch of your friends together, throw on your baseball caps, and head out to your team's stadium for the perfect afternoon or night.

9. Weekly happy hours.

There is no better way to end the day than by sitting outside your favorite bar or restaurant, sipping on their signature Summer cocktails. After a long day, this is a great way to wind down and catch up with all of your friends.

10. Car rides with the windows down.

Nothing screams "Summer" more than going for a drive, windows down, blasting your favorite music.

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.
