Not Your Average Love Letter

A cliche twist.

Not Your Average Love Letter
Colin Sullivan

“Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt” -Kurt Vonnegut

To begin we must make some clarifications. A notice of love, or writing of love, is to be able to express your passion of something through words. We choose to fall behind the safety of our words to hide from the reality of actions. We choose to write about the things we are passionate about. We choose to love these things because they make us become more aware than we once were. I was told before, “every piece of writing is a love letter.”

Comfort Found in Discomfort

To be aware of a place where it all means nothing,

to also be where everything means too much.

Sinking deep to where anxiety resides.

Unknown to the human’s toes below.

A state at which reality seems intangible.

Trying to grasp the fading firmialtiries

to the comfortable feeling of hatred.

Fear lurks through the dream,

Ingrained into us is the known feelings.

Anxiety has at last become apparent,

for the devil has grasped tighter before.

Where everything hurt.

Where we locked ourselves in to see,

To see the pain others had missed,

Coming closer to a defeat by our misery.

We fell to a point where it was easier being hurt,

Than to realize all the beauty.

A sacrifice has become a way of living.

Where we forget how to love,

we forget how to be the person we were,

to solely enjoy the unknown.

To allow ourselves in,

to allow ourselves to be standing

face to face with our biggest misunderstanding.

Our unknown has become everything,

everything we were searching for,

and everything I was running from.

Consumed in a place of discomfort,

where our brains are unraveling,

and our fingertips crave more,

craving more than just the keys below them.

Satisfying the thrill of honest ignorance,

gained knowledge overpowers our fears.

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.
