An Open Letter To God About Second Semester
The Vermillion

Dear God,

First of all, I wanted to thank you for helping me get through last semester. I had some tough classes and assignments, but I know you were there cheering me on. Spring semester is going to be more challenging than the last, so I really need your help with this one. But as Deuteronomy 31:6 says, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." I know that you are always by my side and that you will help me in my time of need this coming semester.

Lord, I am going to be very busy this semester. I really need your guidance to remember to take breaks when I am feeling too overwhelmed. I have some classes that will be challenging for me. I need your peaceful hand to be upon me when I get too anxious about the things I will face this semester. I know that when I am having a rough day, as long as I pray to you, I know you will help turn it around for me.

I would like to ask you to continue to bless the relationships I have made so far at school and allow me to build relationships I started with people last semester. It's never too late in your college career to make friends, and I have a feeling this will be one of those semesters where I connect with a new friend. I'm getting into more of my major classes and would like to form relationships with others with the same major as me.

Like I said before, I know you are always with me and I know you will continue to be there for me this semester. I pray for peace, guidance, patience, and an open mind as I go head first into the semester. Thank you for all the blessings in my life.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
