My 2018 New Year Resolutions

A look into my goals of 2018

My 2018 New Year Resolutions
Hope Ann Flores

Every year I usually write down a few things that I want to change or improve upon in the next year. Sometimes the new year can bring both happiness and sadness. It can bring new beginnings and uncertainty as well. The most important thing is to remember is that through this next year we have the opportunity to start becoming better versions of ourselves. Take time and write down your goals of 2018!

1. Taking Time to Reflect

I usually write in a journal every chance I get. This last year I didn’t write as much as I should of. This year I hope to write more and to share my feelings through writing them out on a weekly basis. I also keep movie ticket stubs, letters, postcards, drawings, and event wristbands in my journal to keep to remember what I did in that year,

2. Volunteer More

Last year in my art class one of our assignments was to create clay bowls to auction off for charity. One of the best feelings in the world in my opinion is that feeling after you help others. I hope to be able to willingly volunteer more to help people in need.

3. Disconnect

So many times I find myself playing on my phone or scrolling through social media when I’m bored. I hope in 2018 I can utilize my time more by reading, writing, and finding new hobbies to put my time in.

4. Get healthy

I swear this makes my list every single year. I go through different times where I eat really well and then binge on pizza and of course jalapeño Cheetos. I hope this year I can focus on eating a little more healthy but of course balance my cravings as well.

5. Get fit

Another thing that always makes my list! For the end of 2017 I was pretty good at walking to every single one of my classes. I realized how good working out and getting active is for the body and mind. Finding different activities, workouts, hikes, and classes can motivate me to keep being healthy.

6. School work first

This year I did pretty well in school but of course there is always room for improvement. Before anything I should focus on school work and other activities that will help me in the future.

7. Spread love

This goal is very broad but probably one of the most important goals on my list. There is much negativity in the world so if I can perform daily acts if kindness would help bring joy and positivity.

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.
