Max: The Goofball

Meet Max:

Oh Maxy-Poo. A French kid that followed his dreams and his love for fast food all the way back to North America. He's been studying in Canada for what seems like forever, making everyone that meets him think that he's Canadian. Max was finishing his master thesis at Copenhagen Business School this semester. This brilliant mind spent most of his days studying or working and most of his nights drinking calimocho, a mix of Viña Morena and coke. He's an admirable student until you saw him shotgun a beer, now that is an impressive skill. A man of many skills and languages, his English and French are perfect, his Portuguese is fading a little bit with a little practice he'd be right back to nearly fluent, and his Spanish is astounding. He would always speak to me in Spanish, which was convenient because I was the only native Spanish speaker in the dorm, and he helped me remember my mother tongue.

Aside from his many talents, Max was always so chill! I could be an anxious mess for whatever reason and he would bring me back into reality with a little perspective. He just had this laid back attitude, I would not say he was relaxed though, I swear Max has to have ADHD, he couldn't stay still for the life of him! But he was always so calm about everything.

No one has given me as many nicknames as he has: abuelita, mamacita, muchacha, chica, the list goes on and on. I loved that about him though, he'd have a joke or a nickname for everyone he was close with. From all of my nicknames to ANVAAAAAR's signature scream, he just found a way to relate to others and when he couldn't relate he'd find a way to annoy them, usually by messing up their hair. Max is just always goofing.

My favorite Max moment was when he found a burger lasagna on Epic Meal Time and he actually organized a group to recreate this heart attack-causing dinner. He assigned everyone a job and created a budget so everyone that participated could pitch in. That was probably the most delicious and well-organized group project I've ever partaken in. It was AWESOME!

Thanks, Max. Thanks for your friendship and your jokes and for practicing your Spanish with me and thanks for almost giving us all a stroke with the burger lasagna. I love you!

Student Life

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.

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.
