The Angst Of Midterm Season As Told By 11 Panic! At The Disco Song Lyrics

Perhaps you've stumbled upon my creator page before, and if you have, you certainly would have noticed that P!ATD is one-third of what I subsist on. (You should click here to find out the other two, and check out some other, in my completely unbiased opinion, amazing articles. Just saying.)

Naturally, I could not help but to take my love for this band and relate it back to the most dreadful, feared upon, heart-wrenching time of year for all students across the globe.... dare I say it? Midterm season.

1. "Do I look lonely? I see the shadows on my face." ("Death of A Bachelor," 2016)

You know the feeling: maybe you haven't slept, or you have slept but you're at that uncomfortable amount of sleep where you can still function, but you just cannot stop thinking about your warm bed no matter what.

I'm kind of there right now.

2. "I'm going insane and I don't care." ("Dancing's Not A Crime," 2018)

You read the textbook, but it all just looks like hieroglyphs and nonsense. I mean, they know that we don't understand what we're reading anyways, so why not just make them a little bit more straightforward and not so fluffy?

3. "Say your prayers, say your prayers, say your prayers." ("Hallelujah," 2016)

Sometimes, when you're headed into a really hard exam that may or may not kick you square in the butt, you just gotta pray and convince yourself that the studying you did do is actually going to be enough for the exam.

4. "Don't threaten me with a good time." ("Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time," 2016)

Social life, anyone? No, certainly not I.

5. "I chime in with a 'haven't you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?'" ("I Write Sins Not Tragedies," 2005)

I remember SO vividly taking an exam for one of my classes and there were so many people crowded around the door (which was open, mind you) and they were talking quite loudly. This lyric definitely popped in my head.

6. "Say what you mean, tell me I'm right." ("The Ballad Of Mona Lisa," 2011)

That's all you really want, is to know that what you're saying is correct, and sometimes it can be a little difficult to understand the message that your professor really means to convey. You literally feel how Brendan Urie looks in this GIF.

7. "Some days I lie wide awake till the sun hits my face." ("King Of The Clouds," 2018)

Or, sometimes It can feel that way when you've spent hours upon hours upon endless hours studying, reading and doing homework. But hey, they say sleep is underrated... right?

8. "If every night I go to sleep knowing that I gave everything that I had to give, then it's all I could have asked for." ("Say Amen," 2018)

This one is a little more positive: as long as you give it your all, and put all your effort into it, then don't worry too much about it. I promise you aren't going to remember this day five years from now, nor will it matter. Just have confidence in yourself and know that you are going to do amazing.

9. "Sit back, just sit back, just sit back and relax." ("Camisado," 2005)

Seriously, don't stress too much. Just take a deep breath, you've got this! Urie amazing!...… Alright, I'm sorry for that mediocre pun of Brendan's last name, but you know I had to. You know you smiled a little bit.

10. "Boy, you better put that pen to paper and charm your way out." ("London Beckoned Songs About Money Written By Machines," 2005)

I'm pretty sure this is what every student tells themselves before they write an essay, as we fashion an answer out of sleep-deprived notes.

11. "Tonight we are victorious, champagne pouring over us, all my friends we're glorious, tonight we are victorious." ("Victorious," 2016)

No better feeling than when you get your exam score back to see an amazing grade.

Look at you! You finished your midterms, and you aced every single one of them. Looks like there was nothing to be worried about after all.

What you did sounds dumb to me

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.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
