Not My Guy

All guys do not think the same.

Not My Guy
Jessica Fuqua

One of the reasons I love my boyfriend is because he is a respectable, God loving gentleman. There are many guys out in the world that don't think twice about the words that come out of their mouths or the way that they view and treat women. Since the Donald Trump recording, where he spoke about sexually assaulting women, leaked, I have witnessed both in person and online this debate in which males are defending his actions as something that "all guys do."

I'd like to take the time to point out that, no, all guys do not do that. They don't speak about women in a disgusting manner. They don't talk about women as if we are possessions. Don't group all guys in the same ship. The majority may view and treat women a certain way, but they don't represent every man. Guys, I understand you're trying to stick up for your fellow bros, but please don't stick up for them when they're in the wrong.

What Donald Trump said was wrong. I have said it before, I'm not voting for him or Hillary. If you're voting for one of them based on the party they're running for, go ahead. But don't defend your candidate when they are in the wrong. Don't sit there and brush Trump's disgusting comments off as "talk." Don't tell me that, "Yeah, he may have done wrong, but what so-and-so did was worse." Every wrong is equal in the eyes of the Father. I know none of us are perfect; I fall short daily. I know that we all say things that we shouldn't say at times. If I said something that I shouldn't, I will admit my wrongdoing, as I should. And someone will make sure to point out that I was wrong.

I'm thankful that I have a man in my life who is humble and honest. I'm thankful that he makes sure that he is open about his actions and admits when he is in the wrong. Most of all, I'm thankful that he doesn't let the world cloud his judgment. He is strong-minded and leads a faith-based life.

I'm proud to be his girlfriend. I'm blessed to be able to call him mine.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
