You Were Made For So Much More, I Promise

I know it doesn't always seem like it, but I PROMISE you are.

You Were Made For So Much More, I Promise
Katelyn McKinney

How do I get it across to you that you were made for more? I am not there with you in person, and I don't know your whole life story. But the thing is, I don't have to. I know without a shadow of a doubt, no matter where you are in life, you were made for more.

It is so easy to get caught up in doing the same things over and over again. And half the time, we don't even know why we are still doing them. Maybe it's your job. You completely hate it, and waking up every morning seems like a task. You drag your feet all while wishing you could be doing something different. I am here to tell you that YOU get to choose if you stay at that job. No one is forcing you to go to work there. If you hate your job, then quit it. Go do something that gives you joy; go pursue something that you have a burning passion for. If you want to do something else, you can make it work so that you can do it.

Choose your happiness, and stop doing things that don't make you happy. You were made to experience love and joy. You were not meant to dread every single day over a job that you, here it is, don't even HAVE to do. Yeah, you need to get paid, but you can get paid to do something else. Opportunities are endless nowadays.

Let's also say you have a bad habit, whether it be smoking, eating unhealthy, looking at your phone too much, taking too many naps, filling your mind with unhealthy things, etc. That habit does NOT define you. It is not just "something you do" and probably will never stop doing — that is completely your choice. You have the power to stop doing it and pick up a better habit.

I struggled with looking at my phone too much. Every two minutes I would check my lock screen or get on social media. When you get on social media, it is hard to make it short because you just start scrolling, and five minutes turns into 20. I noticed my bad habit and decided that it needed to stop. It took a while, but eventually, I was able to train myself to realize that I can live without my phone. Now because of that change in habit, I can do more with my life. I can read my Bible, clean up, bake something yummy and just flat out enjoy the life God gave me. I was made for more than having my face in my phone, and you were too. Whatever your bad habit is, you can change it.

Have you ever felt stuck? Like you aren't going anywhere, but it seems like everyone else is? It is because you are not allowing yourself to move. You were made for more than where you are right now. You were made to be a light, to reach others, to help others, to run that marathon, start that business, lose that weight, chase that dream and conquer the world (figuratively, not literally — then I would be supporting world domination).

You, yes YOU, were made for so much more.

Stop telling yourself that you aren't and that your life will never be any different from what it is now. That is the lamest thing I've ever heard! Go chase your dream. Go live your best life. If that means quitting your job, quit it. If that means losing 10 pounds, lose it. If that means stepping out of your comfort zone, do it. GO DO IT. I can't stress enough how much you are in control of your own life. God intended for you to live your life, so go live it. Stop watching everyone else live theirs. You were made for so much more.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
